    Question- were any of the Nova guys who went pro last year a 5 star recruit? (I don't know the answer.)
    Jalen Brunson and Omari Spellman.

    Gonzaga two years ago- were any of those guys 5 star recruits? (Again, I don't know, but I don't think so, and if someone else could do my research for me...)

    I think the only 4 star recruit on the two Butler teams was Howard.
    I don't think so. Zach Collins was just outside the fringe of being a five star iirc. The Butler teams are the best example of doing more with less.

    Yes, Spellman and Brunson were both five stars, but for some reason Nova had a reputation for being less talented than the other elite teams.

    Per my internet research, Collins was a 4 or 5 star depending on the site. He was also McD All-American, the first such recruit in Gonzaga history. Gonzaga also had, as of 2016, 3 five stars transfer to the school.

Assuming the opposition knows about the shoulder, they most certainly would take some shots at it. That would explain why everyone in the X camp continues to gloss over the status of the injury. Fact is, last year he was going hard to the rim at every opportunity, often with jaw dropping results. He’s obviously not doing that now, instead attempting to score with no contact. This theory should be considered legit until proven otherwise.
    You know, now that I think of it, it makes sense. I do remember several times (while he was driving), it looked as if he was trying to keep that left side away from any contact as he released the ball.

    If true, we can forget about him being an effective scorer AND his assist numbers will suffer. Driving hard to the rack is what he does....he’s not/nor has been a 3 point guy. If true, and other teams can see it on film, they will look to “bump” it at every chance. A few people here, that have had a shoulder separation, say it takes forever to heal 100%.
