Duke vs UK
Gonna be fun. Any UK bandwagon fans from last season still around? Or does UK fans get replaced by a new set every year like their players?
Big test for Mason Plumlee tonight
Heard good things about Goodwin, and Cauley-Stein. Interested to see them play tonight.
I want to see the Willie Cauley/ mason Plumlee matchup as both are crazy athletes. I hope Archie can how us his playmaking ability as Ryan Harrow is out; I want to see how good this guys handles really are
Ryan Kelly is sorry
Ryan Kelly vs Kyle Wiltjer will be one of the premier battles of Matt Bonner clones this season.
Everyone in the Curry family can shoot lights out.
How do you get blocked twice in a row by ryan kelly.....
Ohh snap I might need to raise Ryan's defensive awareness in college hoops 2k8
Whats up with Ryan Harrow, is he in the Dog House ?
"Flu like symptoms"
Didn't travel with the team, he's sickly.
tuning in late so I gotta ask.......
is there a Mrs. Curry sighting tonight?
He has the flu
Seniors vs Frosh
Shots fired by coach cal
A FLOP N*GGA, THAT'S THAT SH*T CAL DON"T LIKE! (Bang Bang!)
Pretty classless from Cal imo.
I would root for UK because they're a fun team and I love watching young teams develop into something special by the end of the year but not with that slimeball of a coach.
The guy just comes off as so unauthentic and fake.
I'm surprised by Alex Poythress mobility. He is big wide body for 6'8 player.
Nice pass for the alley
Noel being able to shoot free throws for a 7 footer is a big plus for his future.
Duke is so much better with Cook at pg instead of Thorton.
Thornton trying to check Poythress. Smh
Notes on UK so far:
Noel has such an ugly post game and has no awareness when he has the ball, but he's such a good athlete and he has that presence defensively.
Wiltjer is good, extremely smart, and is going to have a great year.
When Poythress attacks, no one can stop him. He's an absolute monster when he's being aggressive.
I like Goodwin a lot, he's a lottery talent, but he's got a long way to go in terms of refining his game. And despite they pleas of some guys on here, he should not be the starting PG, he's not good at it.
Cauley-Stein has so a much more refined post game then Noel, he actually looks like he has decent moves.
Wow, that burst of speed Noel showed, when he rushed back to get on D from the other side of the court.
nerlens defense would've been 10 times more efficient in Syracuse zone...
Willies post game is better but it is still bad, when he dribbles while backing down he stares at the ball instead of trying to feel his man and find out which way to turn, he doesn't have a go too move but with his length and athleticism, he should be able to have no problems getting his shot off
Noel is kind of a weak shit, huh? Plumlee is pushing him around. That kid needs to strengthen his base.
sulaimon is beasty... he has deadly range
Yeah, I agree he needs to get a lot stronger. I believe once he gets stronger he is going to be a beast. He is going up against someone 2 or 3 years older than him, that has filled out.
Am I way off base for thinking Kyle Wiljter reminds me of Keith Van Horn?
KVH could put the ball on the deck some. Wiltjer looks like he's got cinder blocks for feet. Reminds me of Nick Fazekas.
Van Horn had a much better all around game..Wiltjer seems 1 dimensional....Van Horn could rebound,post up,shoot and pass...Considering the tools he had,I think Van Horn & Eddy Curry were 2 of the Biggest Underacheivers of the past 15 years.....
Oh my, this kid is good. He's easily the best freshman on the floor.
Ryan Kelly's shooting is killing Duke.
Duke is starting to fall apart.
Archie Goodwin will be the best pro of this bunch.
I think Poythress is going to be a far superior player.
I see him more of a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist type player. Energy players usually don't lead franchises
Neither is going to lead a franchise, but Poythress brings more to the table and does play so out of control. I like Goodwin, but he's a lot less refined then I'd like for a lottery SG.
I think the only problem with Goodwin is that he plays out of control. If he can get that together, kid is going to be special.
Both players are going to be nice pieces to whoever drafts them though.
Damn you goodwin, how didn't you dunk that!
i was about to say goodwin is gonna go off when he made that jumper off the dribble from the elbow.
How many times has Noel been faked out of his shoes?
at one point he's like, 'damn, its so easy faking people out... let me pump fake Mason'
Ryan Kelly with the high light.
Curry got a lot better since last season. Especially taking the ball into the lane and some how finishing.
SUCK IT UK
Wtf did Alex Murphy do to get into Coach K's doghouse? A 6'8 SF PERFECT for guarding Poythress yet he hasn't played the last two games when he started in the preseason.
Must've failed a drug test lol.
That kid skips his last year of high school to redshirt and then sit on the bench... lolk
He must've done something in the last week because he started all throughout the preseason and also there were murmurs that he was going to start last year if they didn't redshirt him.
K is always sung his praises about how versatile he is. Quote from Rodney Hood "I've never had to guard a white dude as athletic as Alex".
Sure could've used that athleticism to guard Poythress instead of mother *cking Tyler Thornton...
