Alex Kirk looks a lot quicker and in better shape. Pretty big win for them getting #8 on the road..

This whole St John's shooting three's thing, it's nice. Should've made Harrison get contacts years ago, god only imagines how good he can be now... :lol:

Anyone seen Kelly Olynyk from Gonzaga a lot? I keep hearing about him and he just had a great game, 33 pts 10 rebs.

Talented player who struggled with injuries and finding a role. Has really bulked up and looks like a legit center prospect. Skilled, not overly athletic but makes up for it with length, agility and effort. Tough guy aswell. Think of a little less rugged but more skilled Joakim Noah...

Probably used that redshirt year to his benefit, came back a completely different player

Definitely. He has shown the development that never really happened with Elias Harris for the Zags...

Haha meant to say that as an affirmative not a question.. He absolutely used that redshirt year to his benefit, got as much out of it as anyone in recent memory in my eyes..

That's how I took it... :D

Man, Michigan State really played terrible but stole one in Iowa. Miami beat UNC, Kenny Kadji is a monster that not many people know about... lottery pick potential easily...

He has good size, good defender, can score in a variety ways but here's where Kenny is lacking

a 6"11 dude who shoots 43% from the FG and takes 3 to 4 threepointshots a game. Kenny is the same age as me, 24 and he turns 25 this year. That means if he enters the NBA, by his 3rd season he'll be 28. Not sure if a lottery team wants to invest in that type of potential.

No chance he slides into the lottery. He's not even in anyone's mock draft, and I'm talking about late second round pick. But it's possible he can land in the first round. We'll see how things developed.


Trey Burke has been impressive, but I'm in love with Ben McClamore...I would no doubt trade Shumpert if the opportunity was there to get Ben. His game is almost flawless.

I agree, McLemore is special.

That Miami team has some talent. Reggie Johnson is a load down there, and Kadji is silly

It's way early but they have the look of a team that can make noise in March. Larranega is a very good coach and they seem to buy into him. Very experienced team (lots of seniors), immense size and good shooters. Plus they got a sparkplug in Larkin at PG...

Nice, the crowd at NC State is so loud that you can't hear that hack Dick Vitale... :lol:
