Ben McLemore: 17 points, shooting 51 percent from the floor, best player on a top 10 team and likely No. 1 pick in the draft
BJ Young: 17 points, 4.5 boards, 4 assists per game
Brad Beal: Lottery pick, average 13 ppg for a bad Wizards team as a rookie (Shooting percentages are atrocious, but they'll get better)

Whiffing on all those guys is just a joke. Before he left, it looked like he'd AT LEAST land Porter (which I was pleased about). That would have been at least ONE saving grace. The HS issues with BJ YOung haven't really surfaced (which was the only defense at the time for not recruiting him).

But getting outworked on McLemore and Beal is a joke. Billy Donovan lives in freaking Gainesville and saw Beal play more in HS than Anderson.
To be fair, BillyD had history with Chaminade in St. Louis - David Lee.
