Mussini isn't the issue.  With Simon, Lovett and Ponds I don't see any top 100-150 PG signing on.  The front court was the bigger need and we locked up a great talent.  We are focusing big time on 2018 guards, hence the full court Muhammed press.

Mussini was a big part of the issue because he was asked to run the offense an he wasn't quick enough to do it. He isn't quick enough to play any position in D1 ball. He'll be fine as a shooter off the bench, when they zone us.

But as it relates to this kid, we want to be known for NYC point guards once again. If this kid is willing to stay in the city in the high school, there seems to be a good chance he'll want to for college as well.

You gotta stop. Mussini is definitely a D1 player.  He may not be a high major starting PG, but he's a good enough shooting prospect to play for 300+ D1 programs.  He could wind up falling out of the rotation here, but that doesn't mean he's not a D1 talent.

He's got D1 jumper, and an NAIA everything else.

Did Max Hooper have much more? Looked like a statue on D and hes in a D league.

Max Hooper shot 45 percent from three, not thirty. He's also 6'6", as opposed to a 150 pound dwarf.

He also shot 0% from 2.

At least he specializes in something. As opposed to nothing.

Trivia: Can anyone name the last St.Ray's point guard to commit to Minnesota?

This is good for St. John's. They'll recruit him in a year when he transfers.

Eric Harris was never given a sniff by Mahoney. He would changed how the first three seasons went for Felipe. Kid was an underrated point guard.

Wow.  Kimani and little Rick getting the job done on this one.  That is a bad loss for Seton Hall - he was their #1 priority in 2017 and to lose him to a lower level Big Ten team halfway across the country.

Love this attitude:

All those ranking don't mean anything when you step on that floor because the piece of paper or that link online can't save you

He's just as flashy as Lovett and some fans can't stand Lovett for that.

Genuinely curious if being from outside of NY makes fans a harsher judge on players. But then if they are from NY they get more pass

Lovett more dynamic, better athlete. Washington much better feel for game.

I'll disagree as I feel they are very close in game.
My point is that people here hold outsiders to a higher standard than NY'ers and I don't get it.

Similar players for sure.

I'm not sure on standard. Are we talking SJU fans? Scouts? general fans?

SJU fans.
They will put all NYC players on untouchable pedestals IMO.

Those are probably the same folks who want or feel there should be a mainly a team full of New Yorker's.

I would have loved for him to come here but I thought there were better opportunities for him. Butler showed interest but I don't think they felt confident in being able to land him and I really thought he was gonna go to Seton Hall which would have fit his style really well.

Minnesota swept in. Kimani going back to his New Heights roots.
