Congratulations to Julian and Justin. Interesting tidbit Julian Champagnie has made the latest mock draft as a second round pick while Justin has not.

I don't know about you guys, but I've got Wusu penciled in to fill Julian's spot.

If Julian leaves they’re going to have to bring in two more very good players to have any shot at really accomplishing anything significant this upcoming season

Julian has good opportunity at combine, but imo will be back at SJU. If he kills it there, good for him though.

Define "significant." Because even with Julian, I still think we need Alvarado to get to where I want to be.

I don't think it's an absolute certainty that we can't be good without Julian. Obviously makes it much harder, but not every program that loses a star sucks the next season. Several guys boost their production and a freshman gives you more than expected, and the ppg numbers are replaced. It's happened forever in college ball.

Here's the way I see it and all this is subject to change if incoming freshman overachieve or Wusu makes a huge jump from last year:

Scenario D - Julian leaves and rather than adding a difference maker combo guard we add a McGriff type kid - extremely lucky to make NIT;

Scenario C - Julian leaves and we add a combo guard as good or better than Stef Smith - we are  a bubble team;

Scenario B - Julian returns and we add a combo guard who is not a BE talent - we are a tourney team but a middle of the pack BIG East team;

Scenario A - Julian returns and we add a combo guard as good or better than Stef Smith - we are a top 4 BE team and a real threat to make week 2 of tourney. 

But then again I thought Cole would be a real good piece for us so wtf do I know?

Significant for me as far as SJU basketball is concerned would be making the tournament and winning a game.Big East Tournament finals

Have the released how many people got combine invites yet?

I thought I had read somewhere that there will be around 100 invites, if so, doesn't seem surprising he would get an invite, he's for sure within the top 100.

NBA GMs are given a list of around 100 college players to vote on.  The top 60-70 vote getters receive invitations.

The first paragraph if this article, from last year, outlines the process.  Zags 2020 Article
