Best transfer-Reggie Carter? Ron Rowan?

Ron Rowan. Good grief. I'd take Curtis Redding and Bernard Rencher over Ron Rowan. Not to mention Paul Berwanger.

Anyway, Billy Paultz.

Heard of Rencher and Paultz obviously but before my time. Not familiar with Berrwanger but I am a big fan of "sittin on the dock of the bay" so Redding would get my vote.

Redding was an all american at Carnesie HS who transferred from Kansas State and amounted to nothing at SJ before Lou benched him and he quit the team. Berwanger was also nothing but I like his name. Say it out loud, B-e-r-w-a-n-g-e-r, the frisson is palpable.

I get Brust disdain even if I don't necessarily agree with it. What is the deal with the hatred for BIG SHOT Ron though?

Made a big shot, otherwise overrated.

Breaking my own rule about double posting thanks for not mentioning floor slapping dope Matt Brust.

Wasn't the clutch Billy Goodwin (played early 1960s) a JC or transfer? I think so...
Indeed he was a JC transfer, one of several from San Jacinto

Sean Obi leaving Duke, assuming he is healthy he can help this program. He was a good player at Rice and just couldn't play over the horde of 5 star big men that Duke gets every year. Brings some bulk to the team and and someone who can actually post up and score.

Not healthy -- horrible knees.

Paultz was a JUCO. Some transfers came with hype like Jon Hempel who I believe was from U Conn and Farmer from Hofstra. As SJU fans have come to expect, letdowns are more common than pleasant surprises. Speaking of big shot transfers, Carter's short jumper with a few seconds to go beat Duke in the NCAAs on Black Sunday in North Carolina. That may even trump Rowan's jumper to beat Cuse for the Big East title.

Hempel was from UMass, and, as you noted, came here with big expectations and turned out to be a huge letdown. That said, no comparison between Reggie Carter and Ron Rowan. If it weren't for Rowan's big shot -- which admittedly was huge, even bigly -- no one would remember him (granted, a bit of hyperbole). Reggie, however, merits having his jersey (belatedly) hung from the CA rafters even though he was here for just two years. A truly outstanding Redmen ... and yet another one who, sadly, didn't get his proper recognition before leaving us.
