Team Outlooks:

Mark Priaulx (Pri-O) (263 points) has the overall point lead and the most interesting team with 3 sets of teammates remaining. A deep run for Villanova, Memphis and Syracuse will give him a good shot to win the title. However he could easily lose players quickly with so many players bunched on the same teams. Priaulx also made two excellent picks at the end of the draft grabbing two 40+ point scorers in AJ Abrams and Jerel McNeal, regardless of the fact that both players are out.

Brain Cerone's (262 points) appears to be the team to beat with seven players left and a point off the lead. Led by Sam Young, who started slow but was a great choice at the fourth pick. His early to middle round picks have been very solid and continue to survive and advance. Chase Budinger in the 6th round was a great selection. Cerone's final pick of Stanley Robinson is looking like an absolute steal with 36 points and a number of games potentially left.

Jon Pastuszek (250 points) may have scored the eventual top overall scorer with the second pick in Griffin who currently leads all scorers at 61 points. Though down to just 5 players, if Oklahoma is able to reach the final four this team will definitely be in the running.

Borko Popic (243 points) is just 20 points off the lead and also has a near full squad. He struck gold with his Kansas duo in the middle rounds. Sherron Collins is the #2 overall scorer after Griffin with 57 points and will look to add to that. Cole Aldrich has contributed 36. Not bad from your 4th and 6th round picks. His number one overall pick Hansbrough has 37 points and could be primed for some break out games.

Aran Smith (232 points) (My team) got criticized for taking two point guards (Fields and Walker) in the 3rd and 4th rounds but I was looking for long term value and players that would score points late. So far, those two have been below average scorers but hopefully will come through with points in the later rounds. With Ellington (3rd overall in scoring - 48 pts) and Blair (37 points), this team still has promise but will need some big games to get back into the running.

Adam Ganeles (221 points) is down to just 5 players but has some firepower left in Warren and Terrence Williams. Both players have proven to be solid picks in the early rounds. Demarre Carroll has been solid and the best thing is he;s still alive. Unfortunately some of his highest scoring players (James Anderson, Isaiah Thomas and Dionte Christmas) are all out. Ganeles looks like a long shot to win at this point.

Adi Josph's (175 points) team will need some 50 point performances from Gerald Henderson on his way to leading Duke to the title to have any shot of winning. (ie aint happeneing). He's down to just 3 players with Henderson, Kalin Lucas and Robbie Hummel. Say hello to your last place finisher. Better luck next year Adi!

Joshua Motenko (173 points) is also forced to play catch up. Motenko took some big risks including Teague with the #1 pick with a dangerous 13 seed Cleveland State in the first game (with Sam Young still on the board). Although his third round pick of Ty Lawson is beginning to look smart with his 23 point performance in round two despite a turf toe injury. Jordan Hill has also turned out to be a good risk with 33 points, desite no huge outputs, he's still alive.
