I'm ready to see John Wall play a team with some talent, because right now against these cupcakes he seem to good to be true. He's averaging 20 points, 7 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, and 4 rebounds, he's doing everything on a team full of talent. I just need to see what he does against talent.
He is going to put up pretty good numbers regardless of the level of competition.
That game will fun to watch though because Carolina has the tall long post players who can block shots when Wall penetrates. I'm not sure any of UNCs' guards can guard Wall though. Carolina might try to put Ginyard on Wall since he is their best lockdown defender. I expect Kentucky to win the game.
i believe kentucky wins. .
john wall && cousins && patterson will all do extremely well . .
but look for bledsoe to kill in that game
He'll do alot of the same things. His numbers will decrease to some degree, but not by much.
UNC will win because i believe cousins will be killed by thompson and davis. he plays lazily at times and he can't afford to do that vs. UNC. also, i agree with the ginyard guarding wall suggestion. i think they will do that because then that will take away wall's size and strength advantage and his speed will be neutralized by the big trees awaiting him in the paint. if ed davis can score 20 points, then UNC should win. it comes down to ed davis because he gets easy buckets and if ur getting a lot of easy buckets against a team like kentucky who will be forced to settle for shots due to unc's length, ur probably going to win.
i'm not saying he's going to be shut down, or his numbers will even drop, i'm just saying, i want to see how he plays when he actually has to try during the game, now he's just going by without being challenged, he needs a game that has competition, where he's playing against other athletic and talented players, not cleveland state
Im a UNC fan but i think this is the best chance UK will have a chance to beat em. Because next yr i doubt that any big program would want to face us.
Although Carolina has good overall height, they don't have much beef down low. Cousins and Patterson could have huge games.
i say unc at this point since kentucky cant shoot and there defense isnt that good as well as turning the ball over alot so far this season. thompson and patterson will be a good match up which i put as even. wall is better then drew but he gets his point son drives and fast breaks so it shoul dbe interesting to see how he does against actually shot blockers and good defenders. ginyard is clearly better then eric so i give unc that..cousins will have to go hard and bring his A game for davis since davis is a good defender and i think zeller will get cousins in foul trouble...all in all im expecting a very good game
