I am a Penn season ticketholder but happened to be at the Garden this weekend with my son and saw Columbia/Iona and Princeton/St. John's. Princeton's defense (particularly in transition) was bad, but Jaelin Llewellyn did not disappoint. He will be a star in the Ivies - I haven't seen anyone in the Ivies who can take people off the dribble as good as him. If they are able to figure out the defensive end and use non-conference to improve their team play, I don't think they are as far behind the top three as people are saying.

Llewellyn is the real deal. Looked very good and it was his first game. BUT, looking at Pton's frontline is where they are not close to the top 3 right now. Gladson is slow and not athletic and they don't have enough talent in the frontcourt compared to H, Y, or us.

an nba prospect as a guard can cover a lot of front court sins. a lot.

Which raises an interesting question (in my mind, anyway.)

If you could have one NBA-level guy on your team, at what position would you want him?

A big guard, without question. After all, look what Michael Jordan did with the Toon Squad, which was seriously outmatched up front by the MonStars.

Agreed. Furthermore, guards can always deploy the Harlem Globetrotters Ladder strategy to neutralize the size advantage of front court players.
