Are you still disappointed over Marvin Bagley’s decision? Remember even if he committed to USC, there was no guarantee he would get approval to reclassify. So he still may never wear a Duke uniform.
In some ways, it feels familiar. USC tends to be a bridesmaid in basketball. And the time it landed a big fish, O.J. Mayo, the Trojans lost early in the NCAA Tournament and it led to probation. But if Bagley had picked USC, the Trojans would have been considered a Final Four caliber team. Instead, they will be ranked a top 10 team.
I’m not sure Andy Enfield could handle the demands of being expected to get to the Final Four. And who knows if there would be chemistry issues with all the hype and attention Bagley’s arrival would cause. Schools like Duke are used to that stuff. Kind of like USC football. At the end of the day, USC will still have a good team. And you can be glad the saga is finally over.
