Is this a joke? Mullin went after a lot of "question marks" because he had no other choice so late in the cycle. And I'll take LoVett as a question mark any year.

How many top 100 players were still left when Mullin was hired? Pretty sure it was less than 10.
Lovett and Yakwe will be here next year w a year of practice under their belt and 4 years of eligibility. That's more than you can say about Pelle, Sanchez, Thomas or ADR. Lovett and Yakwe were Definately worth the risk considering the cup board was bare and Mullin started so late. I also think they are better players than Samir.

Maybe so. I'm just so sick of bad news every year. I recall one poster questioning Ponds' academic status. Hope that's not an issue. As for Yawke and Lovett, there is no surrogate for experience. Would be much better for them to have a year of big east experience going into next year. That said, I will be thrilled to see them play next year. Fingers crossed!

Good to see him doing well academically & in Bball development. Looks like VCU is right fit for him;

#VCU's Will Wade said R-Fr. Samir Doughty "can really score" and expects him to "shoulder some of the scoring load."

If Wade says he can score, he probably can.

Rothstein tweets: VCU wins its first game in Spain 84-68. Redshirt freshman Samir Doughty tallies 17 points to lead team in scoring. Kid is a bucket getter.

Nice to see things are working out for him.

"Will Wade says redshirt freshman guard Samir Doughty is “wired to score” and believes he’ll be a big help for the Rams offensively this season.

“He just makes things happen,” Wade said. “He slices his way through the lane. A lot of guys can do that, but it’s another thing to be able to finish down there. He can finish with his right and left hand around the rim, so he can change the shot.”

Doughty, who averaged 24.9 points as a senior in high school, redshirted last season after being ruled a partial qualifier by the NCAA. He finally got to show several facets of his game during Saturday’s Black and Gold scrimmage at the Siegel Center.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard was 6 of 10 from the floor and 1 of 2 on 3-pointers while scoring 13 points. He had four rebounds, three turnovers, two assists, one block and one steal in 30 minutes.

With defender Doug Brooks making physical contact on the perimeter on one play, Doughty shook him off, drove to the rim and scored with his left hand.
“He’s getting better defensively as well,” Wade said. “He guarded better today.”

Wade said he was pleased with the defense of both teams during the scrimmage. “It’s showing signs of good life,” he said.
He wasn’t as pleased the Rams committed fouls on a running shot by Jonathan Williams with .4 seconds left before halftime and on a 3-pointer late in the shot clock.

We gave them 6 points,” he said. “In a close game, that will hurt you.”
