Tatum is That Dude. It's the frontcourt talent and at the point that's in doubt. We've got a 3 star, earthbound swingman who is our best option at the 4 and our best option at the 5 will be a sophomore in 2016. We have a 2 star combo guard who was recruited to be major rotation player at the point and a starting point guard who has trouble defending his position. We may be able to compete for an A10 title with that profile but we'll get exposed long before the Final Four in the tournament.

Top 15 means one of the best 15 teams in the country. Not getting ranked highly because of a soft schedule or a hot streak.

Again, this is all for the sake of argument


Then I would say adding Tatum absolutely does not make us one of the top 15 teams in the country.  Basketball is still a team game.  One lottery pick plus a bunch of guys who would not start on a good high major team is a top 25 team at best.

Okay so just for clarity- no one has arguments to me saying that we have an NIT team without JT (best player in nation) - the team is a top 50-60 team without him. So if we add a player better than anyone in the country, that doesn't move a top 60 team into a top 15 team?

Breaking into the top 15 at some point during the season is a very different standard than being a title contender. Compiling an impressive record can get you into the top 15. For a mid-major team to reach a Final Four requires at least two All-Conference players.

Looks like Team Canada's frontline got dominated. Neither Egi nor Neufeld had any answers. Good experience for our guy. Hopefully Neufeld keeps improving and he can pay these guys back in a couple of years. Egi is supposed to be a 4 star recruit but he didn't produce much in this tournament.

I'm sure they are.  So are the coaches who offering a lot fewer kids and landing top 30 classes.  Different strokes for different folks.
