Trez is actually the starting PF for the moment. Pitino's been saying he will be starting for the louisville's first game this Sunday. Chane Behanan is in the doghouse but Harrell might be able to keep the job as starting PF.


what did behanan do? has he just been outplayed by harrell?
behanan's a nice player in his own right

On the first post in this thread, Dez Wells was mentioned - with a very good description. Yesterday, the NCAA reversed their previous ruling and granted him immediate eligibility. In just 2 days, he makes his debut with Maryland against Kentucky, and Maryland is likely going to be pumped out of their minds trying to show that they are back - under Coach Turgeon - plus they want to show the Harrison twins what they're going to miss (It was between KY and MD for them.). And it'll be a fun game to check out how good KY's freshman are.
Edit - actually, the game is tonight - 8:30 Eastern time.

Pitino said Behanan didn't put in the amount of effort he expected in the offseason, and Trez outplayed him and won the starting spot.

Behanan also has been having some off the court issues that got him suspended for an exhibition game and is currently banned temporarily from talking to the media. But from what I've heard its nothing big.

I'm a Kentucky homer, but I think Willie Cauley-Stein will surprise a lot of people this year. I wasn't expecting much from him this year, since he was ranked in the 30s by the recruiting guys and didn't put up big stats in high school (12 ppt, 4 rpg), but he has been impressive in the two exhibitions I've watched in person. He's a very athletic 7-footer (noticeably 1-2" taller than Noel) who plays hard, gets a lot of deflections, and runs the floor like a deer. He is still very raw offensively, but it seems like he has good instincts. He played a bunch of sports in high school and now that he is focusing solely on basketball, I think he is going to develop quickly. I expected him to be at Kentucky for 2-3 years at least, but now I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up a late first rounder in the 2013 draft. If he sticks around for his sophomore year, I think he'll be a borderline lottery pick after starting for what is looking like a loaded Kentucky squad.

I've been a little underwhelmed by Alex Poythress. He looks the part of a pro physically, but he isn't as active and aggressive as I'd like. I'm hoping he is just going through an adjustment period as he transitions to the college game, but so far the projections as a top 5 pick look overly optimistic.

i was already high on him, but glenn robinson III looks even better than i though he'd be. athletic, smart, knows how to pick his spots and his shot looks better than i thought as well. i think he's already better than tim hardaway jr.

Definitely better than Hardaway Jr. I thought Glen was going to be good his freshman year but if he plays this smart and effectively all year he'll be a lock for the first round.

Patric Young, I like his defensive upside, he has an NBA ready body, very athletic i think this is the year he makes the jump!

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

Nate Wolters (6'4", 193 lbs.), PG, South Dakota State - Scored 30 pts (10-15 FGs, 5-6 3pts) vs. Alabama. Key matchup will be 12/4 vs Minnesota.

Might not be a 1st rounder at the end of the day, but played in same conference as George Hill, so who knows...

If he continues the way he is playing. He isn't going to be a sleeper. He should be top 15

jordan adams needs to continue to improve on his body. he's not a great athlete, but he'd be a slightly better one if he lost the baby fat. skilled player, but im not crazy about his physical dimensions or athleticism.

He is fat and has a high body fat. But still has a good frame and wingspan. He is going to have a high body fat and appears to have never been in a gym in his life. He lost weight but still needs to slim down more. In all honesty, the only reason why he was not a top 10 recruit was because of the weight. The guy is like a 96% ft shooter.

tj warren is a better pro prospect than cj leslie. warren already has translatable offensive skill and a pro position. i can't say the same for the overrated leslie.

Otto Porter had himself quite a game yesterday.

Looked like Shawn Marion out there.

If he can stay around the 35-40% from behind the 3pt line this kid can be a top 10 pick.

i think he's smarter and not as quick as young marion, otherwise i can see it. sprinkle in some ak47 and you got like the ultimate role player. i think he's top 10 already. i'd take him over mcadoo because porter actually looks like he can play SF. porter's size at the 3 > mcadoo's size at the 4.

I'd definitely say he's a lottery pick right now due to the quality of this draft.
