Box Score Bits 11-9-12

Box Score Bits 11-9-12
Well today is the opening day for college ball and I for one could not be more excited. As some of you may know from last season, this post is where I would compile stats from the days games, give my thoughts on a particular game I watched, and sometimes throw in some predictions or previews. I will continue to do this as long as people remain interested. Last year, interest went down and towards the end I felt I was wasting my time, but this year I hope it’s different. I will definitely do it until Thanksgiving and if the interest is there my posts will be too. Most of the time I will do a post every couple of days, but this one is just games on 11/9/12. Please give comments/ criticisms/concerns and I hope you like my posts.

Game I Watched: Mich St 62 at* UConn 66
Nothing is better than a surprising upset to start the season, but maybe we should just think of this as UConn is better than we thought. UConn is still going to play and compete with Coach Ollie at the helm even though the NCAA tourney is out reach. UConn’s offense revolves around their two lead guards, Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright. Both men play extremely well together and killed MSU in transition as well as the half court. They can flat out make plays and they are the main reason why UConn won this game. The Huskies received a great effort from their supporting cast, RJ Evans, DeAndre Daniels, and Tyler Olander all looked impressive and confident on the floor. Omar Calhoun did not live up to his lofty expectations but I’m sure he will turn it around. Michigan St lost this game because of turnovers and sloppiness which is very uncharacteristic for a Tom Izzo team. Appling played well at PG and Dawson was an absolute monster. Garry Harris, Denzel Valentine, Derrick Nix, and Travis Trice also had their moments, but this team needs to take care of the ball. Many times Nix would grab a nice offensive board and then bring the ball down to his waist where he would get it knocked away by Napier and Boatright. As long as they tidy up their game, the Spartans will be a solid team in the Big Ten.
One player who really stood out as a prospect was Branden Dawson. Dawson was an animal throughout, seemingly being everywhere on the court and keeping MSU alive with his energy. Countless times he fought on the glass keeping possessions alive and when he got the rock down low it was over. He is an excellent slasher and uses his strength and athleticism to get past or through defenders. An average jump shot seems to be his only weakness, even though his style of play doesn’t have him shoot many from the outside. Dawson is also a very good defender who can guard 3 positions. As much as Dawson is excelling as a 3/4, I think he needs to play the 3 at the next level. At 6’6 he is undersized at the 4, but because of his strength he could definitely give a team spot minutes in the post. I have the sophomore as a mid-first round pick in the 2013 draft which I think will be definitely realistic by the end of the season.

Good stuff man I thought I

Good stuff man I thought I looked through every box score twice last night and I noticed 2 major prospects that I completed missed out on who were Jarnell Stokes and Mitch McGary that you put in your post.

Mitch McGary certainly needs seasoning and hopefully stays for atleast his sophomore year but with his size he should be able to become a Kris Humphries type rebounding hustle machine.

I really like Jarnell Stokes, there is just something about his game where he belongs. I think he'll be highly slept on whenever he enters the draft because of his size, but he'll def make a contribution at the next level. Stokes reminds me of guys like Jared Dudley and Tobias Harris, big thick guys that just know how to play.

I love NC State's team this year. CJ Leslie might be my favorite players in college basketball.

You should find a better format at breaking down the box scores maybe make it more prospect oriented. Like there are a ton of big guys in college ball right now and maybe you should list all of their stats in a row. Like put Cody Zeller, Noels, McGary, Steve Adams, Alex Len, and so on in the same row for easy contrast of stats.

Isaiah Austin 22 points and 2

Isaiah Austin 22 points and 2 threes in 17 minutes sounds good. And Mcadoo, man he's a beast.
