Yeah, those guys stayed 3 or 4 years back then.


He started at dook in 1980. Guys like David Thompson, Lynn Bias, Michael Jordan, James Worthy, Sam Perkins, Akeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Kevin Willis, and Ralph Sampson did not jump to the league after one or two years. In the early '90s those UNLV teams and the Fab 5 didn't jump after one year. Shaq played through his junior year back then.

What we're not doing is facing likes of Parker and Tatum for 3 or 4 years like we likely would have in VLF's first 15 to 20 years in the conference.
