Romeo was a player. I liked his game whenever I watched SVSM. He seemed athletic, moved well and had good hands. Wonder where he is now.

I definitely agree that SVSM was a legit contender for the mythical national title that year. I just think they got an extra boost from 2-3 other contenders based upon the James publicity. National #2 Pike was a really well-balanced team with a lot of DI talent, but no superstar. They flew under the radar all year, going undefeated in the largest class in Indiana while never being challenged in the state tourney. Lawrence North lost to them by 8 while being down much bigger w/ 2 minutes left. No one else came within 13. Top 8 players (all Jrs/Srs):

Robert Vaden (all-Big Ten at Indiana, now at UAB, probable 09 NBA draftee)
Courtney Lee (W. Kentucky 20 ppg scorer, probable 08 NBA draftee)
Justin Cage (key Xavier starter, fringe NBA player/D League/Euro)
Parnell Smith (starter at U of Buffalo)
David Barlow (starter at IUPUI)
Mike McCoy (Murray State)
Desmond Gadis (LOI @ Purdue before running into some trouble)
Darren Yates (Ball State - later dismissed from BSU for conduct)

I forgot about that team. Maybe it's because I erased everything I knew about Indianapolis basketball from my head because of Eric Gordon.

I still haven't seen a frontline that was better than Howard, Smith, Morris. Size, speed, athleticism. And Critt was the freaking 6th man. Just sick.

Dwight, Morris, Smith and Crittenton was nasty but so was Conley, Cook, McRoberts, Oden and Gordon
