I'll bite.

D.J. Carton will be the best MU point guard since....  Buycks?  Diener?  before Diener? 
Derrick Wilson (sorry Ners)?  John Dawson (you're welcome Ners)?

Markus Howard

I would probably say Markus Howard, though I know traditionalists don't consider him a PG.

If we're talking pure PG, my hope would be Dominic James or Travis Diener. If he can be better than James in terms of total game contribution, that would be incredible. In their time here, Buycks, Cadougan, and Derrick were all roughly replacement level players. Did some things well, did other things poorly, didn't individually kill the team but also didn't lift it. I'm hoping Carton will be more than that.

Looking back, before Rowsey (2nd team) and Howard (2nd, 1st, 1st), Dominic James in 2008 was the last time Marquette's point guard was on an All-Big East team. It would be nice to see Carton there in 2020-21. Though honestly, it would be nice just to see a season in 2020-21.

I guess I am a traditionalist, I do make a distinction between playing the point guard position and playing point guard.  I can't believe that I overlooked Dominic James who excelled on defense and at running the offense.  It's probably because the way his shooting deteriorated over time did cause me some mental anguish.

It'd be awesome if Carton plays at that level.  It'd be asking a lot for him to equal James on the defensive end, but he has the talent to be better than good there.  If he can get the ball to Lewis, Dawson, Cain, and McEwan (heck maybe even Theo with a good wrist) where they are in their comfort zone offensively it'll be exciting to watch.  Being a threat to shoot as well (rather than being THE threat) is a nice plus.

You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

Carton will be our best scoring threat.  And he is also a very good point guard.  But can play the shooting guard as well, I'd guess if he's on the court with Symir.

TAMU always has the best ban hammer GIFs. I look forward to them but not enough to get myself banned in which case i would not be able to enjoy them.

Thanks Spaniel. It's a service I'm happy to provide. I can only hope that one day, when the mods inevitably get tired of my know it allness, that someone will give my banning the same exclamation point that I have given so many others.
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.

It was pretty crazy. Started as a severely sprained ankle that blistered allowing the infection. By the time I was admitted it was up my calf. I spent 5 days on IV meds
