While the bulk of this year's draft coverage has dealt with the two superstars at the top of the board, Greg Oden and Kevin Durant, it's time for CHN to look out for the little guy. The little guy in this case would be the second round draft prospect.
Today I finish up the position analysis series with the big men. Obviously the highlight here is Oden, but there's not much quality beyond the top few (especially since Hibbert decided to return to school.) This is nothing new for a position that hasn't been producing for about a decade..
According to Dick "Hoops" Weiss of the NY Daily News, forward Joe Trapani will transfer to Boston College, sitting out this season due to NCAA transfer rules. Trapani, who averaged 11.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game in his one season at Vermont, chose BC over Michigan, Providence and Northeastern. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.
These guys might not be the stars of their teams.. but players like Tyrese Rice, JamesOn Curry, and Martin Zeno put up numbers with the best of them.

With a slate full of games from the Big Ten and Big East, you'd expect to only have to concentrate on scores Wednesday night. Well, that all went out the window when Boston College announced that center Sean Williams and forward Akida McLain were dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules. Further details should be released in the coming days, but going into Littlejohn Coliseum to face an angry group of Clemson Tigers shorthanded is not a good way to spend your Saturday. The dismissed pair have been in Coach Al Skinenr's doghouse in the past for behavioral reasons, having missed games the past two seasons as a result. Those transgressions were taken care of at the beginning of each season, however, and that's what makes this episode all the more surprising.
