Thanks to the nifty news feed on the left sidebar, I was made aware of a job promotion within the Bulls organization:

The Chicago Bulls announced today the promotion of Matt Lloyd to Director of College Scouting.

"This promotion is a natural progression for Matt, who has been instrumental in formulating our extensive college scouting database," said Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson.

Really, how hard could it be to create a set of college players for Pax to scout?

select player.last_name, player.first_name
from player
where player.school_name in
    select school.school_name
    from school
    where (school.tournament_finish < 5)
    or school.school_name in
       ("Duke", "Kansas", "Connecticut", "Kentucky", "North Carolina")
Next step: cracking the formula that calculates 'grit index' for each player.
