Hi C.J., I recently read your piece on the events to watch for World Records to be broken at Rio this summer. Excellent work. If it isn't too late, I recommend you add Asbel Kiprop from Kenya to the list. He was 0.69 seconds off the 1500 meter world record last summer and looks to be in excellent form coming into this Olympics. Also, the record is 18 YEARS OLD!!!
Correction, you put Gbinije honorable mention. Still absurd.
You recently wrote an article on the top 20 players left in the NCAA tournament and failed to mention Michael Gbinije. His scoring total is certainly enough to be given recognition at 17.8 pts per game and he leads all remaining players in the tournament in steals. Those two stats along with four rebounds and assists per game rounds him out pretty well. Aside from a statistical stand point, he is the starting point guard on a point guard-less team that has made it to the sweet 16 as a 10 seed. And is absolutely crucial part of syracuse 2-3 zone, which as any basketball fan should know is the best zone in the country. Along with Roberson, his help down low is the reason Tyler Lydon has been able to play the middle of the zone while being under-sized. Much debate can be put into saying he is a top 10 player left in the tournament. I think its almost a slap in the face to Gbinije for all he's done this season as a player and for his team to not mention him as a top 20 player remaining in the tournament.

Can I get in on the weekly B/R college basketball writer top 25 rankings, or whatever other lists you guys come up with? Would be glad to contribute and be a part of that, thanks!
Are you aware that Auburn Univ Associate Head Coach Ryan Miller played pro ball in Australia and has since recruited several players to New Mexico during his tenure there. He also just recently help land Jack Purchase to Auburn as a 2014 kid? If not you should contact coach Miller at AU and have a discussion with him.
