UMass Basketball Rushmore

Post by mlaconte459 » Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:12 am

Saw an interesting article breaking down programs Mt Rushmore ( was not A-10 schools). Who does everyone have in their UMass basketball one? I think Dr. J, Cal, and Camby should be definite but unsure who would take the 4th spot?

Lou Roe. Not sure this is really debateable.

Well, it is Jack Leaman Court. Someone could probably debate that he should be the 4th.

I won't argue with Cal, but I think this exercise is better with coaches left off. Mine would be Dr J, Roe, Camby and McCoy (although I'll probably go back and forth with McCoy/Barbee/Williams as the last guy).

Julius/Harper/Lou/Marcus - my selection for the UMass player Rushmore

Leaman/Calipari - with two coaches to be named later for my UMass coach Rushmore.

Based on his early work, McCall seems to be vying for one of those two spots. That said, there's much work to be done before he can be considered.

I agree. Jack belongs. Absolutely. In that case, drop Camby.

I'll undoubtedly get crucified for this post, but I think Chaz needs to be in consideration for a spot.

I think my 4 would be: Camby, Dr J, Roe, McCoy - but Chaz should be in the Rushmore convo of also ran's.

If it is a mix of players and coaches, Coach Jack needs to replace Camby.

^ I would say replace Roe over Camby.. but I was young during those years, and maybe his successful NBA career has me a little bias.

Dr, Jack, Roe, Cal and Camby. I don't care that Mount Rushmore only has 4 spots... those are the ones that belong on ours.
