They're not yet pros. For some this is the most famous they will ever
be. You have more money then them. Yes, they have scholarships, but you
probably have rich parents. Anyway, if your going to root for an athlete,
take a look at some of these guys.
St. John's, Sr., SG
Everything on this web site goes
thru Marcus (Kinda like the Johnnies offense).
You might think he has busted tats, frizzy dreads, and a shooting
percentage from down town that’s lower then Rob Deer’s batting
average. But, Marcus does
stuff on the court that is ridiculous, as in ridiculously effective.
Bank shots from 30 feet. Turn
around jumpers from the top of the key.
25 foul shots in a game. Picks
off passes like an apple picker at an orchard.
And he smiles while doing it all.
He took a bunch of guys from the ghetto boroughs of NYC who
couldn’t dribble, shoot, or pass and led them to a 20-win season and
an NCAA berth. With
freshman phenom Elijah Ingram taking over the point, look for Hatten to
actually take (and therefore make) normal shots this year.

IMAGINE: your stoner of a dad
has been to over 100 Greatful Dead concerts.
Your stud of a dad was the greatest college basketball player
ever. You get a tattoo on your shoulder incorporating both. You go to
the biggest party school in America.
All 3 of your brothers play college basketball, but can’t hang
with you in the backyard. Your
best friend is breaking out in the NBA, and you’ve doing the same in
the college ranks. You can knock down the long ball, play inside, and pass like
you’re driving a BMW on the autobahn. Welcome to the world of Luke
Stats: 15.7 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 6.3 apg
Indiana, Jr., SF
Some guys look like ballers, not AJ Moye.
His chubby face and long sleeve shirt look like his mom dressed
him up to go play in the snow. Yet, somehow he plays Division 1 basketball, and furthermore
led his team to a shocking upset over the Superpower Duke Blue Devils in
the Sweet 16. Maybe you can
get more girls than him, and maybe you look better in candy stripe
pants, and maybe you don’t have an emotional outburst every time you
drain a shot, but where were you during the Final Four?
Stats: 5.9 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 40% 3’s
Indiana, Sr., PG
Another Hoosier you just got to
love. In the Jimmy Chitwood
mold, Coverdale has a jumper that’s deadly from anywhere on the court. Coverdale was once the subject of ridicule for his penchant
for intoxication. These
days Coach Davis is counting on him to lead the Hoosiers back to the big
remarkable courage was exhibited in the Final Four where he played
through severe pain after suffering two ankle injuries.
Stats: 11.9 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 4.8 apg, 37% 3’s
Jermain Dearman/Luke Whitehead
So. Ill/Louisville PF's, Seniors
Whitehead are equivalent to Ludicrious drinking 10 red bulls and playing
basketball?. Both are
immense catalyst’s for their team and bring tremendous energy to the
court. Whitehead almost
destroyed himself last year on a ridiculous follow up slam in which he
landed flat on his back. Dearman
broke out in the Big Dance to lead the Cinderalla Salukis to the sweet
Dearman: 12.3 ppg, 7.8 rpg
Whitehead: 10.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg
Oregon, Jr., PG
One half of the Luke & Luke squad
for the Ducks. Ridnour
tirelessly pushes the ball up the court every chance he gets.
His frantic pace led the Ducks to scoring almost 86 point a game.
He makes the game fun to play, and for you the fan, fun to watch
(especially if your betting the over.)
Stats: 15.5 ppg, 5 apg, 2.9 rpg
David “Buddy” Lee
Florida, Soph., PF
The inspiration for the Levi
jeans commercial main character, look for Lee to have a break out year.
He explodes to the basket, and has tremendous talent above the
rim. Two years ago, Lee won the slam dunk contest at the McDonald’s
All American game. Lee can
also knock down the open shot…assuming somebody on his team would ever
pass him the damn ball.
Stats: 7ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1 apg
Boston College, Jr., G/F
is a punk, but he's as tough as they come in college ball.
Last year he went through a broken jaw, a controversy with an
official, and a whole lot of trash talking. This year has yet to
begin, and Sidney is suspended from practice for two weeks.
Still, he should be ready to play the season opener, and at only 6’2” he managed to lead the
Eagles with 7.8
rebounds per game.
Stats: 13.7 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 4.3 apg, 36.3 3%
Penn, Sr., PF
"U" is perhaps the most talented player in the IVY League in
the last decade. He has explosive quickness inside and can also step
outside to hit the trey. Onyekweye is originally from Nigeria name means
"father's pride" in Edo, and his jersey number is #1 because his
initials spell UNO.
Stats: 17.5 ppg, 6 rpg, 55.1 % FG
