    You might have noticed this guy named Brackins, or another by the name of Vanderbeken...

    Huh. I thought he was referring to the Per-Mar security.

    Re: Is Hilton now the "Garden of the Guards"?

    I'm thinking history here besides the present and near future players.

    Sure we've had pro players who were not guards but our most successful pros were guards (Hornacek and Hoiberg). Stinson and Blalock were headed to NBA careers but their opportunities did not firm up. On the current team, indeed Brackins will likely be a pro but beyond him who holds the most potential? I think they are our present and future guards; hence, Garden of the Guards.

    <Obligatory Barnes reference inserted here> Now if Harrison commits, we could change the name to Hilton, the Garden of the Forwards but that wouldn't have quite the same ring to it.

    I think you are trying to hard. Lets stick with Hilton Magic and hope that comes back.

    Actually Lincoln should have the title since they may be playing games with five guards. Their only big men check in next year and two forwards are injured this year.

    Speaking of injury, Tyler Zeller of UNC is out for the season with a broken wrist. He was a potential recruit last year.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    With him we just call it the Barn.
