What do Jay Williams, Mike Dunleavy, Drew Gooden, Jonathan Bender, Jason Richardson, Joe Johnson, DerMarr Johnson, Jamal Crawford, Kedrick Brown, Steven Hunter, Gilbert Arenas, Kareem Rush, Marcus Haislip and Casey Jacobsen all have in common?

In a perfect world, they'd all be driving Pintos, scrounging for lunch money between the cushions in their dorm room couches and strutting around campus, ready to lead their teams to the coveted Big Dance. And a few months from now, they'd stroll across a podium somewhere, grab a diploma and begin preparing for the 2003 NBA draft.
