   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The 2010/11 NCAA Tournament, Part 3: Southeastern Region

Filling in at the forward spots are 6'5 junior Nasir Robinson, and 6'6 senior Gilbert Brown. Like Wanamaker, Robinson plays a unique game; he has a shooting guard's height, frame and athleticism, yet he rarely leaves the paint, and any time spent out there usually results in a turnover. Instead, Robinson operates mainly in the mid-range area, where he deflects passes defensively, makes driving layups offensively, hits the glass, very rarely creates down low, fights hard, and makes interior passes. Shooting and dribbling are, it appears, not always a requirement. Brown is more conventional, an incredibly athletic 6'6 small forward with strong similarities to the about-to-be-mentioned D.J.

Gilbert Brown - Brown mirrors Kennedy rather a lot. With good size and very good athleticism for the wing, Brown thrived as a role player, never consistently asked to do anything offensively other than finish. He did this well, improving into a 41% three point shooter, passing well, chipping in with the rebounding, running the court, defending the perimeter and making few mistakes. Brown can't handle the ball or create, but there's always a need for role players of this type, those who realise that they are actually role players without the Antoine Wright-like moments of grandeur. So he has a chance.
