While the BE is a great college basketball conference it still lacks punch when it comes to the NBA Draft

Powell, Howard and Alexander all go undrafted.
Bey goes first round and Paul Reed 3 picks from the end are the only BE players taken.

I’m sick of hearing St.John’s mentioned only as “ his dad went to St.John’s “ or “ his brother went to St.John’s” and can’t wait until current players are being drafted again!

It's a good conference...far from great.

On a side note, I enjoyed watching the interviews with last night's top picks. Some really grounded young men who all seemed to value family and feel blessed for the opportunity. It struck me more than in past years.

Guards are literally a dime a dozen. While Alexander is 6'4, Powell is listed at 6'1 and Howard 5'11. Why waste a pick on guys like that when you likely can find someone who has proven themselves in the G league against former college stars of even in the better overseas leagues?

Not disputing what you are saying. I know Powell barely shot 40% in college, and at his height, what would that translate to in the pros?

Don't worry though. The Knicks will figure out a way to mess it up. Maybe Cohen can spend a little pocket change to buy out Dolan so he can retire and hang with Jeff Wilpon.

Stephen A Smiths reaction (lost it), also felt should have gone with Haliburton from Iowa State
