Why Hasn't Anybody Noticed Dave Immel?

February 07, 1987

Why is it that when Dave Immel starts, the UCLA Bruins jump out to a quick lead?

Why is it that when Immel comes out, the Bruins blow their lead?

Why is it that when Immel is in, there is more inside scoring?

Why is it that when Immel is on defense, his man rarely scores?

Why is it that Pooh Richardson plays better when Immel is in?

Immel understands the game. He has good height, for a guard, and plays good position defense, helping out his teammates when needed. He moves without the ball, down inside where it counts. He passes to everyone on the team, not just Reggie Miller and Montel Hatcher. On a fast break, he passes the ball downcourt instead of dribbling it.

Why hasn't someone noticed?
