Cauley-Stein reminds me of Tyson Chandler so far, kind of intriguing prospect.

PS. I like the Z-bo comparison.

yeah the z bo comparison is pretty nice i think z bo is a better passer though

randles got some solid moves down low, this is the first game ive seen him, does he have a jump hook or anything though?

Kentucky can always count on Harrison to kill momentum. What a terrible outlet pass.

Agreed. I don't know what they expect players to do in the post. It's extremely difficult to defend by strictly boding up and not using your hands or an arm bar.

Kentucky playing with no urgency on the most important possession of the game. They had good rebounding position too.

Ugh, as a basketball fan, that was tough to watch. The refs looked good though....

Parker looks a lot more skilled and savvy than Wiggins.

I think they both look really good. Wiggins got in early foul trouble and has been on the bench for awhile now, though

I've seen Wiggins play before, but first time I've ever seen Parker play. Parker showed some off the dribble moves and off the dribble quickness that I've yet to see from Wiggins.

I was on SI.com and noticed a headline that said something like, "Smart quiet but OKSt wins big". I was already aware of his stat line before reading that headline and was surprised at how stupid it sounded. A guy has 9 steals and makes 40% of his threes and he's quiet? I'm pretty sure that's the exact opposite.

Yeah, that's ridiculous. If Wiggins or Parker did that, they would be saying. "Wiggins/Parker WITH 9 STEALS! 4 3'S TO CARRY TEAM TO VICTORY! EVEN BETTER THAN ADVERTISED AND WELL WORTH TANKING YOUR SEASON TO TAKE THEM!!!!!"

Not a knock on those guys, but it is quite ridiculous they are ignoring other guys...James Young was awesome last night and he was a footnote, even though he contributed just about as much as Parker or Wiggins.

Perry Ellis got the shaft too in the Kansas game. Headline says "Wiggins carries KU to win over Duke". If I remember correctly it was Ellis keeping that team afloat while Andrew was on the bench.

This has to be about the worst fg% in a game between two ranked teams that I've seen. http://scores.espn.go.com/ncb/boxscore?gameId=400504464

That Kentucky squad is just unfair.

Wiggins shooting a barrage of 3s to keep KU in the game vs UF. The Kansas guards have been absolutely pathetic this game.
