so far texas is in a battle. pittman is looking good and some white guard from arkansas has j work. ..i forgot pittman leads the nation in fg percentage
this clarke kid for arkansas( white kid i was talking about) is shooting the lights out
dexter pittman can not be stoped. 17pts in 15 min
Everytime I watch Texas play I become more & more convinced that they are going to win it all. They are just loaded. All 3 of those freshmen have skills...Hamilton, Bradley, & Brown. Texas is well balanced & I really don't see any glaring weaknesses.
As for Arkansas, yeah Clarke is a gunner. He can get hot from deep range.
Also people need to look out for Courtney Fortson. I said he was a top 10 PG in the country before he even played 1 game this season. This is actually his first game back tonight. Overlooked player that not many people know about. He is a great ball handler & will drop some dimes. He can score fairly easily too if he has too. Not a good outside shooter though, that is his weakness.
We do have some weaknesses, our outside shooting isn't all that great and neither is our free throw shooting, Memphis much?
Fortson is extremely fast and explosie, but he turns it over alot. I like him alot though. A whole lot.
Clarke has a jump shot out of this world. He's not a great athlete or much of a ball-handler, but he takes a few dribbles to get shots off and he moves exceptionally without the ball.
Washington is a good offensive player, but he doesn't rebound as good as he could or defend very well for the most part..
I love the combo of dogus balbay and Avery Bradley as perimeter defenders. They are both lockdown defenders. I think they're a much better team than Kansas
yeah i like texas but they have that free throw weakness that can come back to bite them. they have so many options on offense though..pittman,brown,james, bradley, and even jordan can get you 20 on a given night
