Hesitate to post this given the mood of our fanbase, but Earlington with 22 points and 11 rebounds in San Diego's win last night. Currently shooting 45% from three.

There should not be doubt in anyones mind that Earlington was a significant loss to this team .  None of the incoming have given us what he did last season .

Or for that matter two years ago sly fox when he was a great spark plug off the bench and shocked us all. Will anyone ever forget that second half against Georgetown I believe, he was on fire ?, he was unstoppable, just unconscious in his shooting. As much as we thought Smith or Coburn or both could be that guy they are no where close to what Earlington provided.

Thank you for posting NCJohnnie and no surprise. Earlington worked like a Trojan while at SJU and did everything he could to improve his game, especially during the off season. He improved every season so it is not shocking that he is putting up such productive numbers in a lesser conference. Gréât kid and I was very sad to see him go.

The only player who left that I miss and believe he would have henped a great deal this year. Liked him from his freshman year when he showed potential in the limited time he got on the court.

He fell in love with the three a little too much for my liking but greatly improved his game while here.

May be true but he made an awful lot of them when they counted ,e.g. the last Georgetown game. Also he was a pretty good rebounder. Take him over Wheeler any day of the and twice on Sundays.

Kind of ironic because as I recall part of the reason he didn't get more minutes last year was CMA wanted him to stay closer to the basket and rebound more and shoot less threes.

None of the new kids have given us what Moore, Dunn and GWill gave us either.
