The 2012-13 NCAA Knicks fan March Madness Bracket group 

Post#1 » by ibraheim718 » Sun Nov 11, 2012 3:45 am

Indiana looking strong out of the gate.

Haven't been able to watch Zeller up close enough to determine if this is a good year for teams to tank and snag him at 1. Noels looks good but I don't think he's a franchise player.

Everyone knows next year is the year to tank. So whoever gets that 1 pick is going to be a little unfortunate.

Napier looks like he's in better shape this year... maybe losing some of that baby fat.

What else should I look out for this year in college basketball? I am going to throw it back this year and try and watch more college basketball this year the way I used to when I was younger.

Alot of Knick fans should tune into some CBB this year, don't want to be a clueless when we make that 1st round draft pick :D

Kentucky has the worst team that they've had since Calipari took over, wouldnt be surprised if Nerlens gets exposed and drops out of his expected top-3 range, especially with guys like McAdoo poised for a big season

I've always like Mcadoo's game he did the smart thing by staying in school so he can showcase his stuff.. I think his game translates really good to the NBA... Kentucky just doesn't have that really good PG this year.. the Harrow kid doesn't do it for me.

I always get caught up thinking about the draft all year :lol:

Michigan, Kansas, Louisville, Missouri, UNLV and Creighton are the teams I'm looking at.

Too bad my Uconn Huskies are ineligible for the tournament, it is the perfect situation for a first year HC to step into replacing a legend. Hope we can build something for next year, the backcourt is strong, the frontcourt not so much.

We've got a bunch of freshman but no idea if any are starting.

Dai Jon, a sophomore who was a 4 star prospect, was suspended for non-academic reasons (failing a drug test). :/

Looks like it's going to be an exciting year for the big 10, though my alma mater will probably never be good at basketball. However, I do think Tim Frazier can surprise this season...but that's it.

I know man sucks that we arent eligibile for the tourney this year. Im still excited about this team. Boatright is extremely slept on imo. Maybe Napier grows up and makes some better decisions this year and becomes more of a leader. Looking forward to seeing if DeAndre Daniels can take that next step this year. Dude was a top 10 recruit, i expect more from this kid than we have seen so far. I think he needs to take some more jump shots, and I want to see more driving and dunking like we saw against Michigan State. Also Omar Calhoun i hear really good things about. He didnt have a big game in our win but I want to see what this kid has.

Mostly its about next year. Hopefully we keep all of the underclassmen and get a really nice recruit or two if we have a good season. Bring in a good power forward or center prospect and Uconn can be a really good veteran team next year.

McAdoo is going to be a beast this season. Probably going to average somewhere between 17-20 and 9-11 rebounds a night which will put him right in the discussion for POY with Cody Zeller. That will be a fun matchup to watch in a couple weeks. McAdoo v. Zeller in Indiana.

This Michigan team is talented and stacked. Tim Hardaway Jr looking better, Trey Burke buliding on his great freshman year, and Glenn Robinson III has been impressive tonight. Plus how much room for improvement McGary and Horford have. They are definitely living up to their top 5 rank.

I am kinda sad that Shabazz Muhammad ruled ineligible. I was looking forward to seeing him play. It's amazing that there are only two seniors and a junior on the Red Storm basketball roster. I hope everything goes better for D'Angelo Harrison.

Shabazz Muhammad is gonna be very interesting come draft time.

He's projected as the #1 pick by alot of mock drafts, could that status remain without playing any games in college?

It worked for Enes Kanter, but that was a different situation since Enes Kanter was playing professionally overseas before Kentucky. Teams had film of him vs some of the best international players on the planet.

Muhammad's most recent film would be some AAU games, and a few workouts
