The All-Name Team will be a reoccurring feature here at Beadlemaniacs. How often it will run remains to be seen, but rest assured, by the time the season is over an All-Name team for each conference will be unveiled. Each edition of the All-Name Team will consists solely of a starting five. Today, we take a look at the Atlantic 10.
G – Ruben Guillandeaux, La Salle. I’m not sure what’s so great about this name. Yeah, it’s French in its roots, but that’s not such a big deal. What amuses me about it is that Ruben Guillandeaux also plays for a school that has a French name: La Salle.
G -Ogo Adegboye, St. Bonaventure. This
junior out of England didn’t see the floor at all during his first two seasons as a Bonnie, but is averaging 6.1 points a game this year. He also leads his team in awesome names, with two a game.
F – An’Juan Wilderness, Charlotte. An’Juan makes this list for a variety of reasons. For one, he has an apostrophe in his name, which automatically qualifies him for the All-Name Team. Two, his last name is Wilderness, and well, that’s just wild, man. Okay, so maybe it was only two reasons. Regardless, An’Juan Wilderness makes the team for all-around awesomeness.
F – Orion Outerbridge, Rhode Island. Alliteration? Check. Named after a Greek mythological figure AND constellation? Check. Random last name that combines an adjective and a noun? Check. Congratulations, Orion, for making the team.
C – Fahro Alihodzic, Fordham. I’m not sure of the etymology of this name, but the kid is from England, for what it’s worth. Nor am I sure on the exact pronunciation of his name, but dammit, it looks like a great name.
