Team USA Finishes Fifth at World University Games: Notes On Player Performances--Rush The Court

Mid-Major Players Were Outclassed. Every team at any level, no matter how talented, has to have a few bench-warmers, and Detroit’s Ray McCallum, Jr., and Yale’s Greg Mangano were the duo on this team. We hate to pick on our mid-major representatives, but USCB’s Orlando Johnson was the only mid-major player to earn significant minutes on this team. He generally performed OK, but the tandem of McCallum and Mangano received most of their minutes in the four blowout games of the round-robin, and it’s clear that they both have work to do to reach the talent of the names above them on this roster. Mangano is heading into his senior season, but McCallum at least can take solace in the fact that he was the youngest player on the team and will substantially improve in coming seasons.

7. Brad Brownell, Wright State, 2006-07
Brownell has succeeded everywhere he has coached, but he did perhaps his finest work in his first season at Wright State. The Raiders had finished .500 or worse in each of the four seasons before his arrival. Wright State went 23-10 overall and 13-3 in the Horizon League in Brownell's first season, and earned their first NCAA bid since 1993. Their 23 wins were the most the Raiders had recorded in a single season since entering the Division I ranks in 1987.
