    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant Ö isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Only one of those guys hit a buzzer beater to knock off #1 ranked UC. If those were the only 2 points in his career that would have been enough for him to be the greatest #4 in school history.

    I don't know. I voted for Lenny, but a very reasonable case can be made for Sumner.

    Yeah I voted for Lenny too because of the totality of his career but I am surprised it is such a blowout.

    I always wonder if how the ages on the board skew. I am thinking on the older side. You put this poll on twitter and I tend to think Sumner may win or at least be much close.

    Remember Odia, heard of Helmers, but not of Art Morthorst. A quick read of his obituary ... glad to have come across his role in Xavier basketball history.
