    Figured this could be a good offseason thread.

    1a) Willie Veasley — My friend and I once cheated the system at camp to both get on Willie’s team. Won the chip! I also stand by the fact, that as a fourth or fifth grader, I taught him how to shoot FT’s going into his senior year.

    1b) Kelan Martin — Give my man an NBA contract! Bucket getter at any moment.

    2) Mike Green — First BU player that ever stood out to me. I talked to him at my first or second BU camp and about passed out. Still tearing it up in Europe.

    3) Matt Howard — GOAT.

    Matt Howard! He was the game changer, everything fell into place when he arrived at Butler from Connersville. No Howard, no two straight trips to the National Championship Game. Come to think of it Brad Stevens might still be at Butler.

    I always loved Shelvin, loved his game from the word go. But after that low point in 2011, he became an assassin. Knew he was better than anyone else on that court. Some of his play in those high pressure games, namely milwaukee and FL...dynamite.

    Billy Shepherd, don't think so. A lot of that had to do with the fact he and Theofanis did no see eye to eye his junior and senior year.

    Just to set the record straight Billy Shepherd was not the problem in that scenario. From the very first practice at Butler Theofanis made it clear that he was coach there and not Shepherd's dad (they'd both vied for the job). Theo was a rude incompetent coach who tried to make his best player miserable. Shepherd handled it with class.
