    Orien had no where near the offensive game that Elfrid had. He was undoubtedly a better defender.

    Dwayne was more athletic, but similarly could not shoot. Dwayne also could not handle the ball at all and was turnover prone.

    I love Laurie and he was phenomenal.

    Anthony Johnson was a completely different player so it's tough to compare. But, Im not the only one who values Elfrid more tha these guys.

    So do other coaches, sports writers, USA basketball, NBA general mangers etc. I think Laurie Bridges was the best player of the Evans/Lee era. But, he only fully emerged the last 15 games of his senior year.

    I agree with this, except I'm not sure that Orien was a better defender ... just a different type of defender. Elfrid is definitely quicker and has quicker hands. On the other hand Orien was a very physical point guard with great size and could push bigger players around. But even with Elfrid being a little lighter, I'm amazed by his rebounding numbers which may be better than Orien's.

    One thing that is pretty obvious though - he is one of the top players to play for UL in the last 20 years and will be making a pretty good living as a professional basketball player, and any one here who thinks he hasn't won games for the Cajuns by himself hasn't been watching too closely.

    I'm just glad he is a Cajun and we may get to have him around for one more year hopefully.

    D. Mitchel, O. Green, A. Johnson, Laurie Bridges all had a complete team so they did not have to carry the entire team so their stats are lower than they would have been had they played on a two man show like Long and Peyton.
    So on those complete teams, our best point guard at anytime averaged 4 assist per game, at their peak??? If Elfrid was on a complete team, he would be averaging a double-double, easily.

    P.S. I still think all of those guys were damn good.

    I love Elfrid's hair.

    When I grow up I want a Fridoo.
