Look at the rosters of the teams that won during his time

All had multiple players who would go on to the NBA. We had Jeff Lamp on the first two teams, he was drafted high but really didn’t do much in the NBA. Of the players on either of the last two teams only Rick Carlisle really hung on in the NBA. Indiana had Isaiah Thomas and three other future NBA players plus the big guy who got paralyzed before he could turn pro. UNC had Jordan, Worthy, Perkins. NC State had Lowe, Wittenberg, Charles, Bailey, another big guy whose name I’m forgetting. Every year the rumors were strong that Ralph was leaving and turning pro. Every year. And Ralph never really commented, he just kept coming back. But our rivals use that against us in recruiting battles and we simply could not bring in the talent that other schools had
