Yes, that front court of KW, Kissourine (who I think was actually from Russia, played on their national team pretty well a few years later) and Mills was the best front court VCU has ever had IMHO. With Kendrick healthy the whole season they could have done some damage come NCAA time, even with Sonny.I was talking to Eric Atkins a while back as this was after I had graduated. Eric stated he and most of all of his former teammates thought that year was going to be special. That is until Kendrick got hurt. He went on to state if KW hadn't gotten hurt they could have made a run in the NCAA.
They had one heck of a front court with KW, Eugene Kissourine, and Mills. Plus ( and I stand corrected) Kendrick's Junior year they actually had a solid backcourt and front court. The only issue was Sonny.
In KW's Sr. year it was him a couple of guards (McCoy and Kenny Harris).
My point is Kenrick wasn't blessed with great team talent 3 out of 4 years he played. The one year he was he got hurt. Fresh and Soph no guards. Sr. year not front court. Mills graduated, Kissourine went back to France.
