hmmm... shorted the Zags on the number of NBA draft picks since 2000, including Dickau as a first rounder.

Also has Fresno listed as a member of the Mountain West. He must have been too busy researching for the piece to catch any of Fresno's performance at the CWS and those big WAC patches stuck on their jerseys.

Yea, I think this guys' "research" included putting down anyone in non BCS schools that he could think of off the top of his head, thus missing Dickau, Stepp, and Turiaf. Although not sure how he could forget about a player that just played in the championship.

Seems like his International figures are way off too.

Really hope the nimrod corrects his info - unfortunately, lots of high school kids (and some unknowledgeable adults too) actually take that kind of info posted on Rivals.com as "gospel"

... isn't it sad how pathetically inaccurate it actually is? :mad:

Randomly came up when I was searching for when Paul Rogers was drafted - http://statsheet.com/mcb/teams/gonzaga/nba_draft

Sort of an interesting resource (providing the data is accurate) I note that it's missing the expansion drafts though (Frahm was a 2004 expansion draft choice)

It's been corrected.

I count 18 D-1 programs who have had more NBA picks than Gonzaga since 2000. If you consider that this program's recruiting really didn't take off in a big way until 2004...when GU was first able to regularly land top 100 level talent....that's a pretty respectable number. And as many have discussed on this board, that number is likely going to increase next summer.

Can't believe he already corrected the article!!! Love it. way to go whomever emailed him.

Zags will likely add 2 or more to that number next year.

We are exactly tied with UW at 4 picks apiece. (Nate Robinson, Brandon Roy, Spencer Hawes, and Will Conroy?)

Hopefully recruits will notice this.

Also, WSU has no picks.

Memphis has 4 picks as well, even though we only play them at the arena and not on campus. Granted, that is about to change with this year's draft.

Since I don't have a subscription I can't read this article so don't know the guys criteria. Is he (alledgedly) listing just back to 2000? If so, then he is accurate concerning the Cougs. Their last pick was in '96; Mark Hendrickson, 2nd Round.

The article is free.

I am a lot more interested in seeing which schools have produced NBA starting players than overall NBA player statistics. If I were advising my son or grandson (please God!) on which NCAA school to pick on his way to the NBA, I would want to know which NCAA programs produce the guys that start and get major minutes every night, not the guys who cling to the end of the bench praying that some incoming player from Wackistan does not kick them to the curb.

Thanks CDC. For some reason the article would not load at work but I got it here at home (on an inferior system).
