Obi listed as nr 1 player in college

this is not according to their lottery selection,
but their overall skill set....

ESPN Plus has an early top 25 players in the
nation, so most of the article can only be seen
if you are paying for ESPN Plus... but they show
the first player before it stops... and the first player
is:

1. Obi Toppin, Dayton Flyers

Did you have Dayton as one of your top 15 teams in the country in the preseason? Neither did I, and that's why Toppin is the best player in the country. The Flyers are on track for a top-four seed in the NCAA tournament because of their offense (UD leads the nation in 2-point accuracy by a mile), and, with all due respect to Jalen Crutcher & Co., that sublime offense is primarily a Toppin creation.

Article by John Gasaway, he gives more press to Obi,
here is the link:

Interesting that Azubuike is down at #5 after he basically ate Obi for lunch. With that said, I understand that's a true 4 playing a true 5, but still worth mentioning since we did get the opportunity to see those two on the floor together, and we could not stop that monster!

That was one game where we really needed Jordy.

Azibuike had 4 inches and 60lbs on Obi. Any player that much bigger than Obi and as athletic as Azibuike should eat Obi up.

bingo!

it is all about skill set... can Azibuike shoot a 3?
can Azibuike run the court, and be at the end
of a lob for a tomahawk dunk?

the article was all about skill...

If Azubuike catches it within 5 feet of the hoop and Obi is matched one on one, sure he's going to dominate. Conversely, I'd like to see him guard Obi from further than 5 feet away from the basket and see if he can stop Obi from dunking over him.

this was a ESPN Plus article, with the
first player listed as Toppin... that can be seen
before the article stops....

I think one has to be a Plus member to see the
rest... I was only interested in Obi,
so I felt it was very much worth posting!

good press for Obi, Coach Grant and the Flyers
without the pay wall....bam!...)
just more press, can do nothing but help
in recruiting IMO...even if just a bit, it is
coverage we DID NOT have in a while...)

yes!!

then, you would see who eats who for lunch, dinner,
and late night breakfast...bam!

shoot, and this:
can Azibuike be in front of the DAYTON bench,
take a pass...

shoot a 3 with the Dayton bench yelling at him,
and 1/2 of the way of the ball in flight,
turn and stare down the UD bench, knowing
it was a made basket??
not say one word, just turn and stare...)

that's why Obi is 1....

go Flyers!

Dominique Wilkins should formally bestow his nickname to Obi.

Unreal. Half a seasons worth of highlights every game.
