I never got to see the team that Nolan would have had in the 2002-03 season. That team would have had the look of his better teams in the early-mid 90s.
FR - Andre Igoudala (released from his LOI)
SO - JJ Sullinger (PF transferred to OH ST & started 3 years for them)
FR Jonathon Modica
SR- Dionisio Gomez (Made the biggest jump from Jr to Sr year I’ve seen)
SO - Michael Jones
SR - Alonzo Lane
Anyone remember what happened with Charles Tatum? He would have probably been our senior PG if he had returned? I would have loved to see what Nolan could have done with that team.
JJ was a guard, but his brother was a forward. Also, don’t forget about Berry Jordan, who left after NR fired. Probably would have had Ferguson, JJ, Andre, Lane and Gomez. Second 5, Davis, Modica, Jordan, Baker and Satchel. I also liked Mukubu.
Yeah, you are right. I just remembered he was a very good rebounder. He was our 2nd leading rebounder as a freshman. I remember, at OH St, he was also a big rebounder. In fact, his last 2 years there he was their 2nd leading rebounder. He must have played more wing as a 3rd guard here and there.
Yeah, his brother, Jared played a few years later and was much bigger than JJ.
