ROSELLE, N.J. — SMU coach Larry Brown says incoming point guard Emmanuel Mudiay is “the best player in the country” and will be a lottery pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
“It ain’t even close,” Brown told SNY.tv Friday at the Coaches’ Clinic at Roselle Catholic High School. “He’s 6-5, he can just play. He makes people better, he can defend, he can rebound.
“He’s going to be a lottery pick if I don’t screw up.”
