The Eagles junior guard announced Wednesday that he was withdrawing from the NBA Draft to return for his third season on the Heights, fresh off a 2017-18 campaign where he averaged nearly 18 points, seven rebounds, and five assists per game.
The NCAA’s commission on changing college basketball, headed by former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, ultimately pointed fingers at everybody but themselves, putting forth unhelpful recommendations.
Jerome Robinson is the ACC’s second-leading scorer, and Ky Bowman is the only player in the nation, averaging at least 16.9 points, 7.2 boards, and 5.0 assists per game—yet neither have received the recognition they deserve.
Olivier Hanlan was selected by the Utah Jazz in the NBA Draft at No. 42 overall, but the former BC guard doesn’t seem to be a good fit with his new team.
Olivier Hanlan doesn’t profile as a true NBA star, but teams should consider taking a flyer on the ex-Eagles guard when Draft Day rolls around.
