Federico Mussini 6'0'' PG 1996

You can call him the Steph Curry of the Boot. Has close to zero NBA chances, but was one the most fun and clutch players of the tournament. Mussini made all the defenders trying to stop him crazy. His quickness is outstanding and he goes by people like a knife through butter. A great shooter from 3 pt and pull up jumper. Doesn't have a great body, very skinny, but he is strong and knows how to handle contact, which is how he scores so much in the paint. Despite that if he wants to play at higher level and be the successor to GianMarco Pozzecco, he needs to put some muscles eventually. His short size is partially overcome by his long arms that make him like a 6'3'' PG. Not a crazy athlete, but uses two hands like a piano player. One of the things to re-evaluate is his ability to involve teammates, he clearly knows how to create the advantage for the offense but almost never creates for his teammates. Maybe it's because his teammates on this Italian team aren't exactly the most skilled ( in particular the bigs), but if the plan is to play him behind Cinciarini in Reggio Emilia he will have to be a more classical PG and it will be interesting to see how he can adapt his game and also how his defense will be against stronger opponents than him. He did it last year in some games, like the Italian Cup quarterfinals and played great, but now will have to be more consistent. One thing is for sure, when he gets in his "zone" he is absolutely dominant like possibly only Rubio has been in a Youth European championships over the last 10 years.

Call me old fashioned or naïve, but I want to absolutely win. I want us to get the best available athletes. I want them to put us into an elite level of play, That will even attract future recruits as they watch our program. I want those kids to go to school and graduate. I don't give a hoot if they are going to play at the next level. I know they care but I as a fan cannot get excited about it. We should not run a program that serves as a farm system for the NBA. I know you might think this is outmoded thinking but as an alum, I would feel better knowing our kids are playing great ball, and in the process getting a world class education.
The Big East and NYC needs a strong SJU team!

Great on-court interview after the 'Cuse game.

He started off with "The best win of my life!" Raftery asked him about his moves after a three fell and Mussini laughs "I putta the guns!" (away).

When the interview was done, Raf told him he better holster those things...

Love this young man's enthusiasm.

FM was named top freshman player in a list of ESPN top freshman:

Mussini introduced himself to St. John's old Big East rival with 17 points against Syracuse, including five 3-pointers. He leads the Red Storm in scoring and has started every game.

Musso is home for a couple of months. His friends are amazed at his physique, especially his shoulders and arms.
