It was Morris and in his final season, he lead them to the Tournament, just as Spivey at Utah did. Relying on a Freshman point guard is risky business unless they are really special. It's what ended Cremins time. Instead of getting Mark Price, Kenny Anderson, or Marbury, he was getting guys who needed a couple of years to develop. He was lucky when Price left that he had Craig Neal and later Brian Oliver to fill in competently. Akins and Best both took a year before they were really ready.

David Whitmore or Michael Christian might have been in that category.

I don't think either of those two were PG's. But even though they were whiffs at the collegiate level they were very highly sought-after recruits and good examples of the high level of recruiting that Cremins did before the one and done era blew up his time at GT.

I think they were planning to play Christian at the point but he broke his leg. Both players ended up with Perry Clark at Tulane and were productive. Bobby just didn't have much patience with some players. If they didn't produce quickly, they found themselves on the down side of a thin rotation. On the other hand, he did give Anthony Sherrod time to develop.

All-ACC Academic dude to transfer to Florida Gulf-Coast. Good luck to him, but I don't get it.

Our local newspaper here, the Naples Daily News, had a snippet about him coming to FGCU.

In a state that's extremely football oriented, the new state university's only real shot at getting it's name out there is via their basketball and baseball programs, as they don't look like they're going to have a football program for some time, if ever.

They get Division 1 basketball transfers pretty regularly and had a star pitcher, Chris Sale, go #13 in the 1st round to the White Sox, which helped.

The school has a new, modern campus, but not a lot of what I'd regard as traditional college atmosphere, I'ts politely called a "suburban" setting, with a couple of shopping centers close by and lots of close-by beaches. They have around 13,000 students and a 55% / 45% female to male ratio, which will be a nice on-campus change of pace for Mr. Hicks.
