Tuesday's WAC compilation

Michael Rogner Miss Cleos the Western Athletic Conference finish and the top five talents. Most striking: having Denver finishing as the bridesmaid this season plus Louisiana Tech and Idaho ending at #5 and #6 respectively.

One bigtime error: Keith Shamburger is now at Hawaii.

Remember Jaycee Carroll? A lot of former WAC defenders do. AJ Mitnick rates the top players abroad: 

3. Jaycee Carroll, G, Real Madrid (Spain), College: Utah State

Arguably the best shooter in Europe, Carroll’s shooting ability makes him one of the continent’s deadliest weapons. His ability to shoot coming off screens rivals the greats such as Reggie Miller, Richard Hamilton and Allan Houston, and demands an inordinate amount of defensive attention, opening things up for the rest of the offense.

Carroll definitely could cut it in the NBA as a shooter, but his lack of size for a shooting guard and his slight frame would likely make him too much of a defensive liability to make a big impact. In the right system, he probably could be a big weapon like Steve Kerr. But at this point, it seems more likely that Carroll will continue giving opposing European coaches nightmares.
