Watching St. Mary's and USF on ESPNU at the moment.

See that San Francisco has a kid named Charles Minlend, who's father (as many of you will remember) played for St. John's in the "early" 1990's.

Senior was an undersized PF with the heart of a lion. Nice article from his playing days. Interesting what he was told by UCONN when they were recruiting him out of high school:

No, Donny didn’t eat him up. Minlend and Donny used to go at it, and with similar stats if I remember. Ray Allen used to eat us up, and those UConn’s teams were very good.

The thing I loved about Minlend was that he also had great range and was a shooting threat from everywhere on the court. I love players that can stop and hit shots regularly anywhere on the court. Brownlee was Minlend-lite with that. It’s something that guys like Roberts and Champagnie are going to need to learn to do to become more than they are now. The art of the short/mid range jumper is rare these days.
