It's all about the talent

Interesting post over at the Hive about the relationship between recruiting class talent and on the court success in hoops......... Here's a ranking of the top hoops recruiting classes of 2001 from Scout.com. Now, here was the interesting comment:

When you look at the top10 on that list.

Their freshman year, they accounted for 1 of the 4 final four participants (and a national Championship).

Their sophomore year, they accounted for 2 of the final four participants (and a national runner up... us)

Their junior year, they accounted for all four of the final four participants.

Coaching is critical, but get the talent I say. Get the talent.
