Agree. And I would add that he is in process of adapting to the increased speed of the game and talent level. But, still doesn’t look overwhelmed or freshmen-like

After a hot start, Champaigne has cooled off tremendously. The 15 foot jumper was falling early in the season but hes been ice cold with it recently.

Id get the Duke of Earlington in there with the starters and bring penny off the bench.


Seriously? You do realize his brother was 5 for his previous 37 from 3 on the season, right? I’m sure Justin will also continue to develop into a good player, but please don’t highlight his 3 point shooting from one game and act like that proves anything. Even with the outburst in his last game, Julian is still shooting it better. And I agree with many on here that Julian has been very good for us and I anticipate he’ll get going again soon.

In that middle ground now - not as good as he started out in the beginning - not as bad as he's been playing recently.

I would say Julian Champagnie has been a pleasant surprise. He is also a true freshman basketball player, trying to adjust to D1 college basketball. Maybe we can all just relax and watch not just him, but some of the other guys develop under a coach who has a pretty good idea what he is doing.

I have no idea why we need to label him anything (overrated!?) but a freshman trying to find his way.

This Duke of Earlington poster is a complete troll. FYI, I like both Earlington and Champagnie.

This overrated stuff comes from giddy users who watch high d1 big conference recruits make lunch meat out of weak mid major opponents. When you play a mid major that had a horrible record last year. Everyone looks good in a blowout. Of course as competition stiffens everything becomes a little tougher. Some freshmen will excel even then, others come back to earth, and still others will learn to make adjustments. Its way you don't rste freshmen or any "improved" players at this point.

Julian is the second leading freshmen scorer, rebounder and pick pocket in the Big East. He's a top ten rebounder regardless of class and top 12 in steals. He was our best player against arguably the best team we played against - ASU. He made the all tounament team in a tounament that featured schools from the ACC, PAC 12 and Atlantic 10.

He is one of the best front court freshmen we've had here in our recent years. He has started from game one for good reason.
