No, Donny didn’t eat him up. Minlend and Donny used to go at it, and with similar stats if I remember. Ray Allen used to eat us up, and those UConn’s teams were very good.

The thing I loved about Minlend was that he also had great range and was a shooting threat from everywhere on the court. I love players that can stop and hit shots regularly anywhere on the court. Brownlee was Minlend-lite with that. It’s something that guys like Roberts and Champagnie are going to need to learn to do to become more than they are now. The art of the short/mid range jumper is rare these days.


He was strictly an inside scorer his freshman year but he worked on his shooting and added range to his repertoire. Not a pure shooter and looked a little mechanical from the outside, but was effective. He had quick feet and great interior moves which enabled him to battle and get off his shot inside against taller opponents.

I believe current player Justin Cole might also be a Pharmacy major which would make him and Minlend the only two basketball players I know of with that major at St. John's.


Rudy Wright may have been Chemistry.



Justin Cole aspires to become a physician's assistant

I love how SJU has a Physician Assistant school yet his bio says “Physician’s Assistant” which is an incorrect moniker. We aren’t a Physician’s personal assistant. I’ve been running an ICU for a decade and a half now. Even more reason to change the title to something more clear. Rant over.. pet peeve of mine.


No disrespect because i understand that you may practice with a hugh degree of autonomy, but don't PAs prescribe under the oversight of a physician? For example, can a PA open and operate a walk in clinic without a physician on site? What ate the limitations separating an MD from a PA? is there a difference between an LNP , ( licensed nurse practitioner) and a PA in term of scope of practice? Thanks

LPN =Licensed Practical Nurse (below level of RN)
PA = Physician's Assistant
NP = Nurse Practitioner

Don't know prescribing limits for PA's and NP's and suspect they may vary from state to state. One of my pet projects is building an educational ladder for Corpsmen and Medics leaving military service to reach the highest level they can on the EMT, LPN, RN, PA, NP ladder and back them up with a greatly expanded telemedicine network. We are about to lose from practice the generation of physicians trained by Jonas Salk and Denton Cooley and the like. Let's maintain access to their expertise as long as we can.

I figured the PA stood for Pennsylvania. You learn something new everyday on here.

I remember it very well. Minlend couldnt guard Marshall. He was bigger ,a much better shooter. He was faster .Marshall used to taunt him. And i hate Pukon but truth is the truth.

That’s a lot of info to provide. Yes in some states pa’s can do that. I know some PA owners practices that contract out ICU providers as well.

Our scope really depends on state as well as each individual practice/hospital. Physicians don’t review our prescriptions and where I’ve practiced over the years we make almost all of our own medical decisions. Yes we prescribe and do things under a supervising physician but I’m not sure if it’s the way you may be thinking it is.

That said, every practice dictates how that is done. Often the scope of PA’s ends up being greater at times because we don’t have to stay in one specialty.

As far as autonomy, you’re asking more in a business sense and that’s a loong conversation and too much to discuss here. I have more autonomy procedure-wise than many physicians in non specialized or limited scope fields. PA’s choose to stay linked to the Physician relationship for a lot of reasons. Once again, too much to expand on here, but the “assistant” in the PA moniker really is a confusing term and I think should eventually be updated to reflect what PA’s actually do now. Its outdated. There is a big push to change the title to something like Physician Associate and retain the “P.A.” title and I think it would make more sense.

Once again it’s Physician Assistant, not Physician’s Assistant. As far as prescribing, most states PA’s have full prescribing rights to the same level of most MD fields except Anesthesia etc.

We were lucky enough to have a few players who were cut from similar cloth — Minlend, Billy Singleton, Tyrone Grant. None of them may have been the most talented forwards on the court, but each had a heart of a lion, never leaving anything on the floor. Pure talent is of course crucial to winning, but never discount the importance of tenacity and heart.

I’d also add Lamont Middleton to that group.
