THE College B-Ball Game to Watch This Weekend...

The Hype game is Carolina-Texas, but the game scouts are gonna watch and what I'm hyped for is Georgia Tech-Florida State, featuring 2 likely top 10 picks going head to freakin head (Favors vs. Alabi). To me, this is the game where Favors can solidify his top 2 pick status before March Madness at least and one of Alabi's few shots to prove he can be starting NBA center by playing against one of if not the best frontcourt in the country. On top of that, Chris Singleton and Gani Lawal have a chance to improve their stock at least a little. Any other games to watch NBA draft wise?

Kansas vs Michigan, I think

Kansas vs Michigan, I think Kansas will easily win that one, but it'll be a great game to scout him, Harris vs Henry should be a good one, if he does good against #1 Kansas, his stock can skyrocket

Good one

Good one MagikKnick I forgot about Manny Harris in that game. I mostly hear he is a borderline NBA prospect, but I think he can be one of those high value second round picks that teams covet so much. And hey, Kansas has like three 1st rounders alone, so any time they play is must see for scouts lol

Kansas is the game to watch. I want to see Henry and Harris match-up. I expect Henry to abuse him - lol.

I think GA Tech v. Florida

I think GA Tech v. Florida State is going to be a defensive struggle..Florida State will ultimately lose though (prediction) because they don't have the scorers to create offense. I watched them against Auburn last night, and they don't have anyone on that team that is a good enough ball-handler or passer. They give up alot of open shots on D as well, so it'll be interesting to see if they play more energetic than last night, when they almost gave up a 15 point lead.

Good point

Good prediction iggy. Keep in mind too that when it comes to big men prospects, NBA scouts WANT to see them show defensive skills and potential first, then the offensive skills second.

i think alabi is to weak to

i think alabi is to weak to guard favors or lawal and will get exposed like blair did to thabeet last year but not as bad, alabi will get some blocks but favors i think will get the better of him.

alabi

is ridiculously overrated..aside from being 7'1'', what has he done to prove to be different than a Saer Sene, Serge Ibaka, or Johan Petro?

Yea he's not that good to me

Yea he's not that good to me either, but when your that big and have athleticism, your going to be a potential 1st round choice. Especially when how raw you are has everyone excited about your potential. I don't see him being a good pro, he offers nothing outside of is size and shot-blocking..

I think Chris Singleton is the best pro prospect on that Florida St. team.

I do too, him and Snaer.

I do too, him and Snaer. Singleton has alot of potential with his size and athleticism, he just needs to work on his handle and he'll be on his way.
