Syracuse Basketball: Marek Dolezaj is a top-10 glue guy, Jon Rothstein

Top-10 lists of any kind in collegiate hoops are always subjective, but I really do believe that CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein missed the mark a bit by not including Syracuse basketball senior big man Marek Dolezaj in his new ranking of the sport’s top-10 glue guys.

Maybe Rothstein’s definition of a glue guy is different from mine, and that’s fair. And in full disclosure, I really like Rothstein and think he’s one of the best journalists in college basketball.

For context, Rothstein’s list of the top-10 glue guys during the 2020-21 stanza is Mark Vital of Baylor, Justin Gorham of Houston, Da’Monte Williams of Illinois, Gabe Osabuohien of West Virginia, Marcus Garrett of Kansas, Isaiah Whaley of Connecticut, Jaime Jaquez of UCLA, Connor McCaffery of Iowa, Kyle Young of Ohio State and Brad Davison of Wisconsin.
