They’ve got Saint Louis and Davidson coming up on their schedule before the conf tourney. Very possible they go 0-2 and in doing so puts them out of the tourney. Bones will be leaving for the draft. Stinks for VCU fans.

Did some digging and Bones Hyland leads the A-10 in BPR - combined offense and defense. Averaging 2 steals a game. Nice player.

Cole/bones was a debate here.

It seems clear who won that discussion now

Not exactly.

Still comparing Big East numbers to A-10 number + being given the keys to the offense for 3+ years. Would Hyland get that at UConn?

Would Diggins/Hawkins/Floyd sign if Hyland is here over Cole?

Too many variables to say it's a clear case.

The latter part is fair.

And I agree it’s not line for like. But Cole absolutely had the keys to the offense.

Btw I’m seeing bones projected in the top 40 of this years NBA draft. So he may not be the impediment that you think (but that is still up in the air)

No offense, but Bones would clearly be our second best player. He's on some draft boards, and we really need someone with his scoring aptitude. I wouldnt be worried about future recruiting when we haven't made the tournament in a minute.

Watch them and physically it’s no comparison. Size, quickness, ability to create shot. Playmaker on both sides of the ball.

Role player vs playmaker

Every team needs role players but imagine Bones and Bouk - two terrific shot makers that can unclog/ get the offense going.

Don’t have to worry about him blocking someone if he left early this year, for sure. And he’s good enough to do so.

Cole is a fine first guard off the bench on a good team. But he’s a little stretched starting here right now

Bones averages 2 assists per game. He’s not a PG even though he was recruited as one. He would DEFINITELY make this team better. But comparing him to Cole or Gaff is apples to oranges

Cole doesn't play his best as a PG either, though he's definitely a better passer than Bones. IDK if Gaffney is much of any position at this point other than a body on the floor--he needs help mentally.
