It's an interesting discussion. Taylor is certainly an all time great but it's also worth discussing the teams that both Taylor and Anthony played on. The Taylor/TJ team was great but almost all of the offense came from those two guys. Mopa Gila had a career game against Syracuse and gave the program it's biggest win in school history, but on pretty much all the other nights, the team relied on #11 and #22 for pretty much all of the scoring.Here's a question for those of you who have been following Vermont basketball for longer than I have. As Lamb's college career approaches its close, where will he rank all-time on the list of Catamount greats? Coppenrath had huge numbers to be sure, but does Anthony get special consideration for versatility? He's only sixth all-time in scoring, but of course he lost half a season to a fractured foot.
The way that Anthony's team is structured, they are supposed to have a more balanced attack. Yes, Anthony is the primary offensive option pretty much all the time, but as we have seen recently, the team can and will be successful if multiple other players are scoring. There are many games when there are 3-4 players in double figures. If Anthony took as many shots as Taylor did, yeah, his stats would be much fatter than they are, but it's not a foregone conclusion that the team would be as successful.
In my book, they are both great players in their own right. I don't feel the need to rank them.
