While every team would love to have good bigs, it's a want and not a need to compete at the top of the A-10.

Quickness trumps bigs in the college game.

Because there's no 3-second defense rule like the NBA, it's not that difficult to make it tough on bigs in college. If a team with a good big also has great shooters, that's a different story. Usually, only the elite national contenders have that.

To win the National Title, yes you need good bigs. To win big in the A-10, you don't need it.

For those hoping to land a big-time prospect with beef ... when's the last time UD landed such a player?

Finn and Big Steve were projects from Day 1 and Keith W. was a walk-on. Unless I'm drawing a total blank on someone, was the last good big we recruited in the '60's?
