I think Moore also had potential to be a Big East-calibet regular but we'll never know.

He was the most productive bench player in the BE, that’s gotta say something.

For sure, but I think at this level that's where he was suited best.  Limiting his outside shots and wild play-making from the perimeter.  Living in the paint area and transition.  I think a bit "less" was "more" with him.  He's not, at the BE level, a back-to-the basket throw it in the post kind of offensive player.  Nor did I love him roaming and shooting beyond the arc/deep jumpers, even though he can makes those at times.  The occasional short jumper, put-backs, dunks off penetration and in transition is where he's best and why his FG% skyrocketed when he played in that structure.  The occasional 3 was fine, but he was best when he wasn't roaming on the perimeter.  

Now down a level, he may be able to show off a more versatile skill-set successfully because of the talent drop in competition.

Sometimes that's tougher than any defense he'll face.

Maybe the truth is that there was little to no interest in our guys from top programs.

Calling on Moose to moderate a separate thread on how tall Josh Roberts actually is based on this evidence.

Odom is 6’10 and Roberts lists as 6’9.  Seems about right to me.  Maybe He’s 6’8.
