Saint Mary's hasn't had to worry about the point guard position in a long time. From Patty Mills to Mickey McConnell to Matthew Dellavedova, the Gaels have had some of the nation's best players running the show since 2008.
But now Dellavedova is gone, so what are the options for replacing him? The Gaels have a deep and talented team returning for next season, but do they have a point guard?
The national top 150 recruit out of New Mexico was seen as the natural replacement for Delly. He has a similar game - one that is steeped in fundamentals, and he plays slow to play fast. Neal signed with the Gaels during the early signing period when he was still somewhat of an obscure prospect. His profile has blown up since then, but unfortunately (for St. Mary's) his father's profile blew up as well when he took over the head coaching position at New Mexico. Now Neal has been released from his Letter of Intent to St. Mary's and will be playing for his father instead.no comments
