"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
I know this doesn't answer your question, thus making my answer invalid, but I think Purdue proved that you could be very successful with a small point guard. IMO, they were the best team in the country in 2010 before Hummell got hurt. Lewis Jackson was oustanding at 5'9" (although he looked more like 5'6"), and he couldn't even shoot.
I don't know very much about college basketball, but are there passing advantages to being shorter vs a field of tall players? If he is a pure point guard, could he exploit some lanes underneath more effectively?
Now with a PhD in Applied Llama Physics...
Doesn't have to start to be worthy of a scholarship. I watched earl boykins play effectively for years as the nuggets change of pace/backup pg.
He still has to get the ball to someone, so I don't see any advantages to being short. It might help if he was playing lacrosse, but the hoop is still far off the ground.
His quicks and handles are amazing though, and he does know how to show the threat of a drive/shot, and then make a pass when help comes over to him. (Triple threat)
At the extreme end of the bell curve, males can continue to grow until 21 or 22 years old.
too many shots got k lucious in trouble with the law :)
Tyus Edney of UCLA is the best example I can come up with.
