Still, 2 of the top 10 players in the country is astonishing.

Barrett and Williamson are both in the top 5. Rui and Clarke are in the 6-10 group.

YEP

their stories make them extra special imo. Rui over coming language barrier and Clarke finding his way through the cracks of D1 recruiting to unite and create powerful duo.

easy to root for and fun to watch.

thanks Rui & Clarke

and?????

their lead title was Duke teammates among top 10 named.....well so was Gonzaga teammates

if it was such a big deal that two teammates from Duke was among top ten then should also be recognized that another team had the same if you want balanced reporting

Wait...

A mouthful is said in Jazz's post. It's a nice honor to be included but this fix is in and has been from before the first game. Duke! Only Duke. Zion is the guy.

Zion certainly deserves it....a Duke player has not won it since JJ back in 2005.....it is a tremendous honor for Rui and Clarke to be among the 10 players selected....there is no collusion …..
