Nice Fit

You won't find Brian Walsh on top of many statistical categories from his week of action at the ABCD Camp in Teaneck, N.J., but he may very well sit on top of West Virginia's wish list for next year.

Walsh, a 6-4 180 point guard out of Moon Township, Penn., demonstrated good on-court leadership and overall skills that would fit perfectly with the WVU system.

"You can't fully appreciate what he can do in this type of setting," said former WVU assistant coach Lanny Van Eman of Walsh. Van Eman coached Walsh all week at the camp on the Celtics team at ABCD. "He definitely is a rising junior and somebody to keep your eye on. He comes from a basketball family and has a great feel for the game. He's not the kind of kid who is going to come out here and launch shot after shot."

For the week, Walsh averaged 5.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Keep in mind, each squad is spilt into two teams and each team alternates each quarter.

Walsh was named to WPIAL Class AAA second team by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review after his sophomore season.

So far, Walsh has interest from West Virginia, Pitt, Penn State, St. Joseph's as well as several other schools. But none would be a better match for Walsh and what he does on the court than WVU.


  • Percy "Lil Romeo" Miller was somehow named to the underclassmen all-star team. Miller, a TV and music star and son of Master P, did little all week to merit such an award.

  • Coach Jerry Dunn was in Teaneck on Saturday and Sunday representing the WVU coaching staff.

    The top-rated ABCD campers for the week included:
