Done. What a strange way to select the best basketball player in the state.
Reminds me of punching out stacks of Robin Yount “chad’s” in the MLB All-star voting.

Agree. "Strange" is a nice way to put it. So a bunch of people who have never seen one minute of high school basketball in that state get to vote for the player of the year?

It's actually worse than MLB All-Star voting used to be. At least we all saw Yount be great.

But good luck to Stevie.
What was the first thing the Communists done when they took over Russia? Gun control. And there's a lot of people in this country want to do the same thing. They want to masticate the people like puppets on the wing, and then when they get their guns, turn us over to the Commies.

Are you trying to say that me watching highlight packages of one player doesn't make me an expert on Pennsylvania basketball statewide?

It seems it'll be the first time we've had multiple Mr. Basketballs.

We had Henry Ellanson and Luke Fischer at the same time

Was that the year we had more RSCI Top 100 players than the whole Big East combined?

If memory serves, I think that was Wojo’s first year (ie: the “empty cupboard” year)

To be fair, it was 6 and one wasn't available till halfway through, Duane was off an injury, Taylor was battling knee issues too if I recall correctly. There was a lot wrong with the coaching that yeah but it's an overplayed statistic imo

No. Wojo's first year we had 7 RSCI top 100 player. 1 left after his mother's death. 3 averaged 13.5 minutes or less for Buzz on a team that missed the NIT. 1 wasn't available until the middle of the season. 1 had repeated leg injuries. The last 1 was Sandy Cohen.

Wojo had 9 RSCI top 100 players in year 3. Of those 9, only Markus Howard has played any minutes in the Association so far.

The obsession with recruiting rankings...long after the players have hit the court and shown what they can do at the college level...is amusing. I get it when they are recruits because we have little else to go on, but once they are sophomores, juniors, and seniors? I mean I love Matt Heldt, but he was one of those 9 RSCI top 100 players.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yep ... it was a sign we were a decent team Matt's senior year because he hardly played.

Actually, he hurt his toe prior to the season.  He could hardly move.  But, yeah, he was never really good.

Interesting look at Mitchell, Joplin, and EE being viewed more favorably by 24/7 than other outlets.

https://247sports.com/LongFormArticle/Ten-from-the-final-2021-ranking-that-247Sports-ranks-higher-than-the-industry-165092840/

Also interesting is Cardet going to Samford. Regardless of 24/7 or composite, a top 100 recruit going to a school that hasn’t been to the NCAAs in 20 years, plays in a mediocre conference yet hasn’t finished higher than 7th in a decade, and has a new coach who literally has ZERO D1 experience and spent the last 15 years since graduating coaching HS BB.  I assumed that somehow there was a bagman involved. 

Then I read a bit more and realized his uncle is a newly hired assistant there.   Savvy play.  But still, dude had offers from Bama, Auburn, and Illinois

Hope 247 is right.  This would get Shaka off on the right foot.

I don't know nuthin' about how good 247 is at rating kids, but it would be outstanding if they're right this time!

And Baldwin might as well be Kevin Durant compared to the 71st ranked recruit in the country.

Shaka had previously recruited Sardhaar  Calhoun who is now in the portal.

https://247sports.com/college/florida-state/Article/FSU-Basketball-Sardaar-Calhoun-enters-name-into-NCAA-transfer-portal-165160611/
seems like a prospect w/high upside . Wondering if Shaka still has an interest?
