[...] The players in the Madsen all have their various plus points. [Note: as described in part 1, Madsen is the collective noun for a group of role players.] Point guard Dustin Ware gets the ball over half-court, shoots three pointers, moves it around, plays decent defense, and turns it over remarkably few times, sporting an assist/turnover ratio of better than 3:1. 6'8 270lb big man Jeremy Price brings toughness, strength, rebounding, fouls, a boatload of size and interior offense, pouring in 9 and 5 in 23 minutes per game, albeit while turning it over a huge amount for someone who doesn't dribble. (On the season, he has 19 more turnovers than Ware.) Fellow senior Chris Barnes plays in much the same fashion, albeit with better shotblocking, more athleticism, and far less scoring production (as well as, somehow, almost as bad turnover numbers). Prized recruit Marcus Thornton (the 6'7 forward, not the small guard) does little other than rebound at the moment, but provides some athleticism and depth, and a good prospect for the future. And while backup sophomore guard Sherrard Brantley has struggled hugely on the offensive end this season, he does space the floor, and can fill it up on his day. There's a few pieces in the Madsen to work with.
