Where do you think these seniors belong
Ben Woodside, North Dakota St.- Among the nation leaders in scoring and assists. Undersized, but scored 37 against Kansas in teh first round of the tournament, and had a 60 point game early in the season.
Lester Hudson, Tennessee-Martin- 2nd in the nation in scoring, a great rebounder for the 1/2 position at 8 boards a game. Good passer, but can improve in that area. Among the league leaders in steals. A quadrouple double guy.
Josh Akognon, Cal State Fullerton- Possibly the quickest and fastest player in the draft. Great scorer and shooter, with a very quick release on his jumpshot. Undersized for the 2 position, so needs to improve his point guard skills. Great free throw shooter at about 90%
Cedric Jackson, Cleveland St.- Among the league leaders in assists, and a good rebounder for the point guard position at 6 a game. Highly outplayed Jeff Teague in the blowout against Wake Forest in the first round of the tournament.
the fact they play for small schools hurt their stock, but i want to know your opinions
All are late second rounders and possibly will be undrafted. Maybe one of them will being a contributer to a team.
Ben Woodside is amazing 4 a White Boy
Yea i watched Woodside expose Sherron Collins n that matchup he seems to be a very instinctive scorer and very dangerous once he has tha rock n his hands, i personally think he wuld b a steal n tha 2nd round.... Now as far as Lester Hudson goes..... He is 25 years old!!!!!! this guy is older than LeBron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IDC if he had tha 1st ever quadruple-double, he did it against a some school called Central Baptist College where n tha hell is that located? He shulda averaged a triple double tha whole year, that league sucks ass!
What does age have to do with it???
His ages is kind of a big deal because at 27 or 28 you are in your prime. It takes about a year or two to learn the NBA game so that means by the time he was learning how to play, he would be as good ad he is going to get. I know that's not always the case but most of the time it is. Not everyone is like Steve Nash and keeps getting better. Nash ages like fine wine and Hudson will age like milk.
But it goes both ways, a prospect can enter the league young and full of potential and never reach that potential, I think Hudson is NBA ready and he could be a steal.
I dont understand why but it is when it comes to NBA prospects. Its kind of silly because the NBA potrays the image that it would rather have a kid go to college and gain experience before turning pro, but on the other hand once you hit the age of 23 your not considered a prospect with potential anymore. Hudson is a perfect example, last year he was considered a borderline draftee with a good chance of getting drafted if would have played well in Orlando. He didn't so he goes back to school to improve.....now he is not even on the draft radar and he had a great year. Now how is it that a guy that might have been a draftee one year, goes back to school and improves (at least statistically) and can't get any love the next year...no love. Let me put it this way if Hudson was 21 he would be considered a late first rounder at worst.
Idk...maybe you are right it's just hard for me to see that.
i understand what your talking about when you say hudson is too old, but hes got game, and i think his age might help because hes more nba ready than many other people who just have potential that they may not reach. i also agree he can be a steal in the second round
