    Gotcha, Larry probably would have averaged 60 - 20 - 15 at a AA school in CNY

    if you play class C then you need to be avg 30-40 to have a shot at Div 1 ball but it still comes down to position as well.. a 6-5 kid in class C is playing center most of the time and will be a guard small forward when he comes out for college ball so he better have developed those skills in summer ball . but some kids in these small schools play guard at that size in offense and center on D so its hard to really get a read on them unless the play high level AAU.

    Lydon as a Jr was nothing to watch and not even the best player on his team as that was his brother. He developed like crazy though, obviously .

    Which reminds me. Why the heck is his brother playing at Cortland when we have a Scholy available?

    He started last spring with the city rocks 16u but was playing behind Mika Adams Woods and Joe Girard, so he switched over to the NY Jayhawks on the Adidas circuit and had good success there.

    Marius Janulis came from a small school just like Charles Gillete and Adonis Foyle from the Hamilton area.

    There will always be outliers, but the fact is, the competition isn't as good, so typically the players won't develop as well. And, if they are good enough, the best players from the small school transfer to larger schools for better competition. I sent to a class D school that is historically very good (3 state championships) in basketball, and I don't think we had any D1 players.

    Cremo is already one of Albany's better players and I think he could have played higher. Bertram I am not sure of.

    Yeah they lost to Lake George in the Class C final. Lake George had a kid Joel Wincowski (6'3" guard) who score like 2500+ pts in his career and broke Jimmer Fridette's Section 2 scoring records. Wincowski is now a sophomore at UMBC and at last check is averaging 1 ppg. Here's a kid who dominated Class C and apparently can't contribute at low D1.

    that same lake george team lost twice to the D team that won the states that year.

    the Wincowski wasnt really a legal kid, he was a NJ kid whose parents bought a house in lake george to give him an address and while he went to school there he really lived in NJ. he couldnt get on the court at his NJ school.

    he was solid for Class C but undersized, had real nice range though. most C schools have a hard time handling a guard that big.

    Lydons team was the 3rd best team in the State that year.
