Leading the way on mid-major recruiting

Over the last two years I've been gushing about how well Larranaga and his staff have been recruiting, grabbing players like Ryan Pearson and Andre Cornelius who could be playing on BCS teams right now. Last week Antonio Williams of ESPN and Scouts Inc. tabbed Mason #1 on his list of top mid-major recruiting. Williams seems to be high on Sherrod Wright and it's exciting to hear more about his ability to get to the rim. Johnnie Williams being referred to as a "dominant post player" really makes you hope the next Will Thomas is being groomed. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, the squad is packed with talent but chemistry is something you can't get overnight. What I'm really excited about is the depth this squad is building, and that is something that is really a luxury most mid-major teams don't have.

Yes, Chemistry is Everything. At the end of the day, it's not the rankings that matter. It's the player's performance and willingness to play with a group of guys just as or more talented than himself.

It's amazing how rarely people talk about chemistry when it comes to the game of basketball. Many teams have become very successful without a 'superstar' player. Just a group of men playing as one unit.
