Dante Exum scores 33 points to top Spain
He has been one of the better players in the entire tourney, this Aussie could play college basketball this upcoming season if he wanted to but looks like he's gonna play prep school ball in the states after he graduates in November. Indiana and Vanderbilt are really high on this guy and I'd say he even has potential to go #1 in 2015.
Im liking this 2014 class and the 2015 draft. You have guys like Okafor, Tyus Jones, Mudiay, Lyles, Myles Turner, Karl Towns, Rashad Vaughn, Stanley Johnson, Justise Winslow, Cliff Alexander, And Exum. Then you have guys like Embiid, Selden, Vonleh and all those other guys who may stay who more than a year from the strong '13 HS class. I cant really see Exum going #1, but thats only from what Ive read. I didnt get a chance to watch the game, but word is he had 18+ FT attempts. Is he a 1 or 2? And who would you compare him to?
if something happens with PJ Hairston and the gun/weed/$1500 per week SUV rental. Dante's father Cecil was a member of UNC's '82 championship team and teammates with MJ.
As it stands now, UNC already has a crowded back court so I don't think Exum is real serious about them. But at 6'6 with a 6'9 wingspan as a pg? That is pretty amazing. So realistically he could play either back court position. I would love to see Marcus Paige and Exum together in the same back court. Hard to imagine Cal not getting involved though. Although Cal is linked to Mudiay in 2014, so it will be interesting to see what year Exum ends up being.
qDizzle - do you have a source for the prep school nugget? Every indication I have heard is that he is looking to enroll for the second semester this season. If he were to push it back, that would certainly make his recruiting more interesting.
@velvet I usually use this site and ESPN Recruiting as my sources for prep school players.
