    Since this is the off-season and the discussion board is without much discussion, I’ll ask the question:
    With one season left to go, who is Lehigh’s greatest basketball player CJ McCollum or Daren Queenan?

    Trivia question: (Without researching) There are 100 players in NCAA history who have scored 2,000 points and had 1,000 rebounds. Only 4 were listed as 6-4 or smaller. Daren Queenan is one. Can anyone name any of the other 3?

    This is a question that I think about often. Saw a lot of both of them. And, their games are pretty different. Darren was an incredible leaper, and rebounder. He could shoot it pretty well also, but really dominated games inside and slashing to the hoop. He put up some monster games. He could really dunk the ball. Competition wise ECC vs. PL, hard to judge, although I thought ECC had more talent.

    On the one hand, CJ will play in the NBA, Darren never did, so I guess you have to say CJ is the better player. But, I loved Darren’s game, and I would take him with a slight edge. I think Darren was hurt by the fact that he was an odd size and his game did not translate to the next level, like CJ’s hopefully will. Although Darren had a really long European career and was close to making a couple NBA rosters. I just saw Darren dominate games more often than CJ has, and that is probably due to CJ being a guard, whereas Darren was really a big man in a small body, but with leaping ability that made him a lot taller. He was fun to watch. He could put up 35 easily in games. Tough call.
