   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The 2010/11 NCAA Tournament, Part 2: Eastern Region


That is not to say, however, that Villanova are not still guard-based. They are. The Wildcats usually run the three guard lineup of Maalik Wayns, Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes, which has been both their strength and their weakness. Fisher and Wayns have a lot in common, as reflected by their pretty bloody identical statistics. Both are born of the playground; quick, small, fearless guards with tight handles and plenty of flair, but prone to mistakes, not great around the basket, and underwhelming shooters (occasional 105 point performance notwithstanding), due in no small part to bad shot selection and the apparent need to unnecessarily fall away all the time. Both take too many "hero" shots at times, but, to give them their dues, both have improved as decision makers and leaders, and play aggressive, interested defense. However, even with said improvements, there's a lot of duplication there, and neither is truly a point guard. Meanwhile, Stokes is the shooter of the trio, and his career at Villanova so far has been spent mainly catching and shooting, although he has slightly diversified that game as he's aged, adding the ability to shoot off the dribble. For the most part, though, he remains a catch and shoot player. He is underwhelming defensively, not aggressive in looking for his shot, is frankly rather passive, not a ball handler, and frankly not all that efficient for a 43% three point shooter.

   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Point Guards

Corey Fisher - Fisher's stock has cooled after an underwhelming senior season, supposed 105 point outing be damned. He's somewhat improved his shot selection, but he's still not an elite shooter, 23-made-three-pointers-in-a-supposed-105-point-outing be damned. He's an improved decision maker, but he's also not an especially effective half court point guard. He's fast, but he's small. He's a keen and irritating defender, but he's small and prone to mistakes. Fisher had the opportunity carry Villanova this year, but he couldn't do it. He is good, but he is probably not good enough.
