Freshman big-time contributors (say top 3 in scoring on a team) on top 20..

... ish teams tend to be both top 30 or so RSCI and OAD. Less often, you see guys that are one or the other, but not both. E.g., Hagans from KY was top 30, but not OAD (but probably coulda been). Iggy Brazdeikis was 70 or so on RSCI, but was OAD (go Knicks!).

Morsell is 58 RSCI and getting no OAD buzz. Neither was Iggy, though the Mich beatwriter was on it pretty much from their foreign trip.

Morsell has this going for him:
- Evaluators have admitted his eval may have been off, and he should have been higher
- Good buzz from FIBA camp (but no berth)
- ACC ready body
- Some nice buzz from practice\
- PLENTY of opportunity here

But the odds are not in his favor from a precedential perspective. And then if he is a big time contributor on a top 15-20 team, do we need to worry about OAD? The precedents suggest yes...
