What happened to the hype on Wally judge
I remember he was getting a nice amount if hype but never did awhole lot last year. Now where ever I ready a big 12 preview on espn hoopsworld etc and they mention ksu as a top 10-15 team I notice they don't mention his name when they talk about players that are expected to contribute. Did he transfer or no one expects much from
he didnt transfer he just didnt produce much last season since he was often in foul trouble and pretty raw offensively
He should be a starter next year. He will be less effective than Curtis Kelly (who will breakout nicely next year) and Jamar Samuels (who is better as a matchup ploy than as a starter), but he looks like the PF for us next year.
Last year he was too raw and a bit too low in the basketball IQ department to really live up to his HS hype. He did show flashes in some games, but he was a little too raw to really have the impact he could've had. He is a 2012-2013 prospect though.
did this kid work on his game?..looked like the same player i saw last year in kstates first game. He needs to represent d.c alot better then that
It's gonna take time for him to live up to his potential. He's playing like he's scared to make mistakes, probably because of the way Frank Martin coaches. He is a guy who has always looked like he was a 3rd or 4th year prospect. He's more athlete than basketball player.
The coach shouldnt cause him to play this bad. He has had a couple of high strung coachs while playing in the dc assult organization. He needs to work on his game and not rely on being more athletic then others
Hey, it's more of an adjustment playing for Frank Martin than an AAU coach. All the players said the biggest adjustment to playing for K-State is getting used to Coach Martin's coaching style and intensity. Keep in mind many of those same guys played for D.C. Assault. The announcers actually talked about it in the game Thursday.
i know its a adjustment but from watching him the biggest adjustment is his game needs to adjust(get better)
LOL, I don't know if you're just trying to stir something up, but no argument there.
How much of an nba prospect do you really see him as Iggy? Cause I'm just hoping this guy could turn into a consistent and productive collegiate player who could have an impact in the collegiate ranks. I have no doubt he'll improve, but how much of a prospect you think he'll grow in to?
At optimum upside, Wally Judge has the potential to be a Tyrus Thomas type. He has to keep developing, but it'll take him time reach even that level. Judge has a ways to go to reach his upside. He's playing like he's afraid to make mistakes, and it's making him tentative.
Yeah I see that as a guy he could mold his game into. But with his frame and raw tools, it may just be only a matter of time before he figures it out over there. And one must consider that he wasn't thrown into the wolves like some other young highly touted prosepects are at times, since they have capable (and better) guys ahead of him. So that limits his on court production and opportunities. If its by 2013, he probably won't be a 1st rounder if it takes him til then, since scouts will probably consider him a low upside guy at that point, but he'll probably have a chance to stick. If (and thats a big if) he can get a nice mid-range jumper ala Dante Cunningham did his sr year, that def aid him in his growth and improve his chances. We'll see. I love seeing guys get better every year as they mature, and really understand the game; much better than watching the one and done kid who does nothing for the university and just bolts after one year (Donte Greene, B.J. Mullens).
I just got my first look at Judge this year, and I was pretty un-impressed. He is raw on offense and I didn't really expect him to light up the score card, but for having the physical skills he has, he didn't even use them to his advantage and had difficulty finishing around the rim. I was expecting him to be around a 8 and 8 player this season and i know it's super early, but i didn't see the kind of improvement I had hoped to see for him.
The Judge and Aspirilla front court was nasty, and not in a good way, but as usual KSU had some good guard play and pulled away like a top 10 teams should. I think Samuels is a great glue guy and I really thought Henriquez-Roberts and McGruder show a lot of promise.
Asprilla looks HORRIBLE. He looks like Luis Colon 2.0, except he's more athletic (although he's not very athletic).
Judge is playing nervous. He can defend the pick and roll well and he's an OK defensive rebounder, but he's too timid and he thinks too much.
Yea it did look nasty. Judge just isn't good on the college level. Prob won't be much of a factor till his senior year
I liked that freshman point guard though. Very aggressive and high basketball IQ
