""Jet" is one of those players where the wings and engine would have to be falling off before he wouldn't play in a game.

I know Jet is only a freshmen but I think he may be better than Rahsaan when his career is over.If he continues to improve,I think he will be the best player in MU history!

Thanks Tony,
There's hope. "Keep Hope Alive" Glad to hear that he's ok, in sorts. But ok isn't good enough. As an x-ball player I know the bruised knee issue all too well. It actually takes weeks of being off of it to heal..... I know we don't have weeks but I would hate for him to add salt to his wound. We need 1000% next year - this one is speaking for itself. By the way from a previous poster - stated Jhamar would have gotten POW more than this if in fact we would have been winning. I too agree, what do you think? I don't recall you giving your insight.

Better than Rahsaan? Kornegay? Bazaz? I never saw Kornegay play in college.

Rahsaan was the best player (guard) I ever saw at MU going back to 1969-70.

Re: "Jet" and ROW award. Tend to agree he may have had at least one more honor..difficult, , but not impossible, to give to a player who leads his team to an 0-3 week.
.

To me: Rookie of the Year coming down to Sweetney (12.9 ppg.) of Pa., best player on a last place team, excellent talent overall; ; Jhamar (12.0 ppg.) all around best player on a middle road team, a teriffic talent; and Goode from MSM (about 11.0 ppg.), probably key player on an 8-6 (NEC) team..MU will see him Saturday..

Goode and Sweetness have won ROW three times, "Jet" twice..Chauncey Hardy (SHU) also scoring about 10 ppg.

To answer your question- playing on a winning team would help with ROW - because no doubt "Jet" would be contributing to those wins...

But I think he has a real shot at Rookie of the Year as he leads all frosh in several categories ..but it's still up for grabs..

Tony its amazing how little some people on this board know about basketball. Rahsaan was a great athlete and a great talent, and of course very entertaining. Was he a good teammate? Hmm...How about Al Blackwell, Corey Albano, and Giraldo? Probably a different answer there. It is asenine for people to say Jhamar is going to be the best player in MU history. Clearly I judge basketball players by different standards. I remain perplexed.

Ok Last Anon poster. My question to you would be by what standard are you judging Jhamar, since you have dubbed Bob for basically being clueless about basketball with his assessment of Jhamar. I mean this is a place to vent you opinion. After all Bob has been close to 95% since I have have been a fan of the spot. Chillax my dude, Chillax.

Hey,
I didn't get to see Giraldo,Albano and Blackwell, other than in the summer leagues.Giraldo is still a great player with an incredible BB IQ.I would have love to see him play for MU.All i'm saying is if Rahsaan is one of the best of all time(correct?)and that if Jet continues to improve each year he may be.I know its a bold statement(and a tad premature)but its just my opinion....so shoot me.

Bob....BANG! Just kidding. I would say Jhamar certainly does have a chance to be very, very good..he's not exactly chopped liver even now.


Depends of course on how he develops and how the team develops around him.

For him to get 12 boards the other night was a bit mind-bloggling...he just explodes to the glass.


In looking ahead, he should become the team's go to player and potential leading scorer over the next three years.

Strolling down Memory Lane -

Giraldo was shade below Rahsaan's level.....not quite as strong physically and more of a point guard..but like Rahsaan could create for himelf and others..

Corey developed into a premier, polished, low post player...

Blackwell was Corey with a bit more range, shooting touch, and physical presence ...again ...almost unstoppable down low...

As Dave always says...""My role was to shoot, or pass it to Al."

At the time Szoke would say..."".Monmouth has Mr. Inside ((Al), Mr. Outside (Dave), and Mr. In Between (Will Lewis).""

Those were the days (sigh)..and amazingly they never won the NEC...
