JJ had a Top-25 team with two players who didn't shoot.

RE: Randy Haynes
While making the Top 25 is an accomplishment, it hardly means that the season was a big success story. It was bitter sweet at best. His Top 25 team lost the next game after they were ranked and dropped out of the rankings. His Top 25 team couldn't win the regular season C-USA title. His Top 25 team couldn't win the C-USA Tournament. His Top 25 team failed to make the NCAA Tournament as an at large.
They made the NIT and played decently, but .....

He had one player (Freeman) that took about half of the team's shots which covered for the near total lack of scoring by the two members you are referring to. Not the best way to build an offense.

As awesome as it was to be ranked, we were never the 25th best team in the country.

RE: Randy Haynes
Great article by Ed Miller. Stories like that are why I even care to follow sports. Glad to see Haynes doing well on and off the court. Also happy he took the right fork in the road when he had to choose which path to take.

I'm now a Haynes fan.

Me too - I recall him saying at the preseason scrimmage “We are balling this year” to me was a sign of confidence as well. Too bad some posters will only focus on the negative primarily the bloating type end results . The game of basketball is awesome and seeing student athletes at our great university succeed in life is the type of reward I receive.

Strange as this is going to sound, the Top 25 poll doesn't necessarily mean these teams are the best 25 in the country. It's all about who is winning against whom, and who is doing it lately. Duke could lose 5 in a row and drop from the rankings while ODU kept winning and get ranked number 25. That doesn't necessarily mean ODU would beat Duke. The poll is not a power ranking or guessing which team would beat another.

Slow week here ladies and gentlemen? I like how the Haynes talk switched to Top 25 in less than one full page of posting :D
