Personally, if I were going to college to play basketball or any other sport, I'd want to go somewhere where I would play and get significant minutes and be able to contribute to the team. Yes, I understand it must be amazing to be on a team like Wisconsin, but wouldn't you want to make the most of your basketball days? Wouldn't you want to be playing every game? That's just my opinion. If I went to college to play hoops, I would want to play a lot. I don't think he'll ever get that much playing time at Wisconsin so why waste 4 years somewhere where you won't play much instead of going somewhere smaller where you would start and play a lot? These are the last 4 years Valentyn will be able to play basketball at a competitive level. Why not go to a place where you'll be able to play a lot in those 4 years? That's just my take on it. I wish him all the luck.



In no way is he wasting (your word, not mine) his four years at Wisconsin. He is going to one of the top schools in the nation and getting a chance to learn underneath one of the top coaches in the nation. Sure playing 30 minutes a game is nice but there is a pretty good chance his experience at Wisconsin will help him in the long run. If the kid has a dream to play at Wisconsin, then he is fulfilling it.


Actually Wisconsin isn't even one of the best academic schools in the country anymore. It was ranked 134th or so on a list of 300+ universities in some ranking recently.

And Hoopster, I have my opinion. You're best friends with Valentyn, of course you're not going to agree with me. But that doesn't make what I say wrong.

And it's not even about scoring 20+ points. It's about playing. If I go to college to play basketball I actually want to play. I don't want to ride the pine. I don't care if I score 20+ a game but I want to get minutes. That's something I don't see happening for him at Wisconsin.


I haven't seen him play that often, however what I have seen he would have been a solid D3 player. With that said, who ever said that his fathers connections with Bo didn't matter, Wake up! Obviously it mattered, if it didn't then why doesn't every D3 caliber player play d1?!? Good luck to him and hope he improves!

What? Could you find that one for me, cuz last time I checked I remember UW being as high as 7th in the country among public universities. And in another one, almost sure it was the Princeton Review, Wisconsin was 34th or 35th overall in the nation.

I would be highly suprised not to see Wisconsin as a top 50 public University.

I agree with everything except for what was in bold, that's highly unlikely.

Only off by 100. Madison was ranked 34th in US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT, which along with the Princeton Review is the most widely used. Unfortunately, it takes a subscription to get a report from the latter.

Another fairly popular source is Ordo Ludus which ranks Wisconsin as 27th.

University of Florida recently issued a study on research programs, and ranked Wisconsin 16th. That's kind of separate from the mainstream rankings.

The current trend is to call the rankings "flawed" or "classist" anyway.

I do enjoy bashing UW, but on that I was going by what my English teacher said.

Every team has 10-12 players and rarely does a team go past nine guys playing a great deal of minutes. If everyone played only for a team where they are assured playing time there would a lot of teams in trouble. I would never decide to send my son to a different High School just so he can play. I hope he will understand that each player has a role and each role is just as important as the next. Brett understands and treats every person he meets in life, muchless a basketball team, exactly the same. I have only met Brett maybe a dozen times, however, when he meets someone he has away of making you feel just as important as the next guy. My son looks up to him because he is a hero in more ways than you will ever understand. Good Luck

Here you'll find Wisconsin at 34th among all schools and 7th among public schools.

I haven't seen him play that often, however what I have seen he would have been a solid D3 player. With that said, who ever said that his fathers connections with Bo didn't matter, Wake up! Obviously it mattered, if it didn't then why doesn't every D3 caliber player play d1?!? Good luck to him and hope he improves!


ive seen brett play quite a few times and my coach has close ties w/ the valentine family and i can tell you that brett's dad had nothing to do with it he didnt even know about the offer until brett told him


Right, well you can believe what you want and I will believe the realistic truth. But being a UW fan, I could care less and I hope that he brings intensity and a great work ethic to the scout team and hopefully he improves enough to contribute by his Sr. year. Again good luck to BV.


Bo is not the type of coach to give out a walk on invite just because of who is Dad is, believe me.
