Lafayette did beat Rutgers but has lost to everyone else, bottom tier Patriot team, tonight is no indication of future success. And I guarantee you Ricky Free and Alton Byrd had better offers than this (from Murphy's recruiting profile- including Cornell, Siena, Jacksonville, Stetson, Binghamton, Manhattan and American). How about we let these kids try and develop before we anoint them as "the next........"? This would be a little more impressive (note the OFFERS) when gauging future success

I'll tell you, Ghost, Lafayette can't be half bad if they beat a Steve Pikiel-coached Rutgers team that played post season basketball last spring; on the road, no less.

Be mindful, too, that I wrote delaRosa and Murphy may be the best pair of first year players at Columbia in quite some time. Can you name a better PAIR of first years, in recent memory? While you're at it, I'd appreciate your take on why your alma mater stopped recruiting the PSAL.

And by the way, you're absolutely right- Ricky Free could've gone anywhere; could have gone to Virginia to play with Ralph Sampson. But Byrd had to really look up to you, Old Lion and Chet Forte- so he went where you went!

Obviously, you don't know much about the rest of the college basketball world if you think this year's Rutgers team is anything close to last year's team. Why try to compare these two kids to two Columbia greats after 5 games? "May be......" invites comparisons. How about Grant Mullins/Maodo Lo as first years? Those two turned out to be great Columbia players over time but they earned their greatness over time, and were not compared to any other duo thirty years before them. If these two get ANYWHERE close to those two I'd be shocked but it would be good for Columbia.

Lo's obviously created a great body of work; and Grant performed well for your alma mater and at Cal. However, neither Maado nor Mullins was a full time starter as the start of their respective collegiate careers. Now what about the school you're truest to not recruiting the PSAL?

That's correct, they were behind Brian Barbour and Steve Frankoski, Alex Rosenberg, etc. So maybe the lack of talent on this roster provides an opportunity. Your assessment of "may be....." is way too premature, considering one game was against a lowly D3 school. Who would Columbia recruit from the PSAL? The PSAL rarely produces Ivy League student-athletes in ANY sport.
