He is a beast..and if he keeps playing with a high motor he could wind up being the best player on this UK team. Also Noel has impressed me on both sides of the ball against good competition. The potential is definitely there with this team.
I really really like this duke team..... I really like poythress to.... Goodwin is a baller but he plays outta control
Damn Archie needs to SLOW down; he has cost his team the game win his erratic out of control play in the final minutes. I understand he's athletic but he needs to develop a go to ISO move to get to the rack instead of charging blindly
Archie did play out of control alot during the game, but thats to be expected from a freshman playing out of position at PG. I think he could eventually be a PG, but its going to be a process no doubt. He has to let the game come to him rather than trying to make highlight plays by hisself and not trusting his teammates.
Yea Duke is going to contend with everyone this year, Mason Plumlee has expanded his game on the offensive end and looks to be ready to have a huge season. Sulaimon looks like he is a great fit for the program too with a nice shooting stroke and solid defense as well. I look forward to Duke, NC ST and my Tar Heels to battle it out for the ACC title this year.
I've been saying it all offseason, Poythress is UK's best player and will be the best NBA player on the team. Noel will probably get drafted ahead of him, but Poythress is a monster.
lets not go over board with goodwin's 'outta of control' play. he was the main creator and was playing full point for some1 considered a SG.
Its not going overboard, have you been watching? I counted like 3 times in the final 2-3 minutes where UK was close and he went in for an outta control layup that cost them a possession, noticed this in their first game as well.
Poythress is going to have to be a small forward at the next level which I think he's starting to show, I'm a big fan of his and his game will only develop more on the wing. I honestly don't see Archie as a PG, maybe a combo guard at best but in todays NBA he's better suited as a two.
