College Hoops Marathon
Tuned in late but I've seen most of this Gonzaga - Colorado State massacre.
The Zags look like they finally have the pieces to live up to expectations come tourney time.
It feels so wrong to see Adam Morrison in a suit on the sidelines
watching byu vs Stanford.
It seems like every single byu guy is comfortable with the ball and the ball handling and ball movement is phenonmanal.
Didn't some of the BYU guys play in the same high school together?
I may stay up to catch some of the WKU vs Wichata State game at 1:00 am Eastern time. I like Cleanthony Early from Wichata State. I think he can be a good second round get in next years draft. At 6'8 with good outside touch and good athleticism to guard the perimeter and also slash he can be a solid role player on the next level. He needs to polish up some areas like ball handling and consistency for sure but he is a high level non-BCS player.I expect an even bigger year from him this year then he had last year.
Hartford vs FGCU I may catch later on in the morning. I have a buddy who made the squad as a tryout player.His name is Jeremiah Aska he is a 5'8 very atheltic guard.Made America East conference Academic Honor roll last season. I'll watch to show my support.
LSU vs UMASS is intriguing to me. I want to see what improvement has Chaz williams made over the summer.Also LSU has little guards so it will be cool to see 5'11 and under guards go head to head. I Also want to see how good are these 4 star recruits that Lsu has brung in.
LIU vs Indiana I will watch. LIU may play in the NEC but they are not a team to be taken lightly. They can creep up on you in a hurry. Would like to see how Noah Vonleh is doing over in Indy as well as the progression with Yogi Farrell.
VCU vs Virginia seems look a good one to me as well.
In the evening I'm pretty sure we all will have our popcorn or whatever snack to our side with our eyes glued to the televison for the MSU vs UK game as well as the KU vs DUKE game. A whole bunch of first round draft picks on the court at the same time. Would like to see how Julius Randle deals with the length of MSU frontline.I feel he will do well but I see a lot of people are concerned about how he does against length so we shall see.The Harrisons vs Appling and Harris is a nice backcourt matchup as well. The KU/Duke is obviously eye catching due to the potential of a Parker vs Wiggins showdown. I am a KU fan but I will be honest and say I have no doubt Jabari Parker will come right at us from the start. I would hope for Wiggins to do the same.I feel Wayne Selden and Perry Ellis must play well for Kansas to pull out this victory.
Also if anyone is interested Fordham is playing Syracuse at 7:30pm. Fordham has a freshman named Jon Severe who scored 28 points in his college debut and hit seven 3-pointers.He is probably the best Freshman in the A10.If you want to take a peek at him that is another game to tune into. Also would like to see if Dajuan Coleman from Syracuse has slimmed down any.As well as how is Tyler Ennis doing.
Great Day of college hoops.
