too early to tell after 2 games but if kabongo has a bad season, do you think he'll still declare?

i think he kinda has to because it doesn't look like anybody significant is going to texas next year (unless they get randle)

if he plays for texas for the entire season next year and they are crap like this again his stock will drop even lower. this year the draft is so weak that he may be able to squeeze into into the first round.
Sam wasn't the solution, but he wasn't the problem either

The Olynyk Clinic with 26/9. The guy is so skilled for a big man, it's crazy.

i asked Doug Smith this question in his chat, but he admitted that he has no idea which way Kabongo is leaning.

if i were him, i'd take my chances and declare this season. completely agree with you on Texas struggling next season if they don't get any top recruits.

it's also a deeper draft next season, and by not declaring this year, Kabongo could risk injury like Noel this season. if Kabongo declares and performs competently in workouts, he's probably an early-20s pick, which is likely where he'd be at if he had played a full season anyway.

I think Kabongo has to come out this season. It is a weak draft, so someone will take a shot at him since his game is more suited to the NBA. His FT shooting improved and he can get to the line very well, although its only two games.

CDNs almost* in the NCAA....

St. Benedict's Tyler Ennis sets school record with 53 points
Hours after not being selected for the McDonald's All-American Game on Thursday, St. Benedict's Tyler Ennis delivered an epic performance to prove that the McDonald's had made a mistake.

Ennis set a school record with 53 points as St. Benedict's defeated Eastern 116-65 at Life Center Academy in Burlington Township.

birch should stay the whole four years. on the other hand, powell might benefit from declaring early (again, weak draft). although maybe his stock will go up if he works on his body some more.

Can Powell legitimately play SF ?? (I see him listed at 6"10 and SF/PF).

Our Canadian bench is loaded in the front court, but we sure could use depth at the wing -- even though Wiggins owns the SF spot. At this point, I don't see anyone besides maybe Ejim (might not even play for Canada), or possibly Bennett (out of position), who could offer quality minutes backing up the 3 spot... The Kris Joseph ship has sailed, in my mind...

I think Kris Joseph is still the guy at 3 until Wiggins takes the spot. Just because he isn't in the NBA doesn't mean he can't play for the national team.

joseph, whodid four years of college and pro experience, should definitely be the starting sf for us this year at fiba americas. this guy was very successful in college, successful in summer league, made the celtics, probably has good experience from going against paul pierce in practice and was successful at the d-league. dude can definitely ball and probably only lost his spot on the team so the celtics could make some moves. maybe he can't be an nba regular but he is a world class player.

i do agree that we have don't really have a lot of dynamic wings. the wings that we do have other than wiggins are mostly shooters: wiltjer, rautins, rathan-mays (who didn't attend that training camp), stauskas, heslip etc. but hey, a bunch of decent big men and outside shooters is probably good enough to build an inside-out team.

The Olynyk Clinic shot 100% for the second time this season: 5/5 from the field, including 1/1 from 3, 3-3 from ft's. 14 points, 9 rebs, 2 assists and 3 blocks in 20 minutes. As always, I watched every minute of the game and the guy was a man among boys, doing what he wanted, when he wanted.

Melvin Ejim has really played himself into contention this season for a shot at the 3 spot.
