Kaspar scorched the nets for a career-high 25 in Bucknell’s win over Penn State.

There may not be one single factor that influences his development, good and bad, during college as much as what school he decides to play for. It could be for many different reasons, but under the right circumstances, players could flourish well beyond expectations.

The above clip comes to us from an early season college basketball game between Dartmouth and Bucknell in late November. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be of any significant note, but just listen to how the Bucknell announcer describes a routine lay in by former Patriot League player of the year Mike Muscala early in the second half.
