At the end of the day, it’s all about player development/results. We’re only going as far as our frosh/sophs take us. The upperclassmen are supplemental (role players) at this point. The hope is that, eventually, some of those nine underclassmen (including BMB) become:
Tre Clark = Briante Weber-ish
Jarren McAllister = Jesse Pellot Rosa
Bones Hyland = Melvin Johnson/Eric Maynor-ish
Hason Ward = Larry Sanders-ish
BMB = DJ Haley
Mikael Brown-Jones = Juvonte Reddic
Jamir Watkins = Treveon Graham-ish
Joshua Banks = Jamal Shuler
Ace Baldwin = Jequan Lewis
If some of the above come to fruition, we’ll get back on track. The near future of VCU Basketball ultimately rests with the development/ascent of these 9 kids.
These 9 guys individually have really different games vs. their aforementioned past counterparts.
