Someone questioned

Someone questioned Stephenson's toughness? Woah. That's his strongest trait IMO.

WVU will win though. I'm not sold on Vaughn as a PG. He's looked pretty bad this year playing the point as he's had to get used to not being the only legit scoring threat on the roster.

WVU wins 74-65. Look for Ebanks length to be a big threat in the way Stephenson plays.

I was saying

Lance is not strong enough to put cincy on his shoulders this year.

If not for the crazy hype

If not for the crazy hype that comes with being a NY prep legend, Stephenson would be getting praised for being one of the best freshmen in the Big East. He has had a very good season. Obviously, he isn't a finished product or ready for the NBA, but the tools are there. He can work on becoming a better shooter and doing a better job of getting his body into balance before shooting. The nice part of the one-and-done rule is that now Stephenson has realized that he has work to do, and has said he will be back for his sophomore year to better get ready. Of course, nobody mentions this when defending the rule.

As for tonight, I don't think he is going to fare particularly well if Ebanks is guarding him. That is an NBA defender he will be going at.

Kevin Jones is the PF for WVU I believe on both ends.

Ebanks defends every

Ebanks defends every position. He defended Steph Curry and then DeJuan Blair last year. He can do it all on defense.

Um.. I dont think Im going to comment on who will win this game because I am going to be very bias and probably come off as a prick.. I'll bite my tongue.. er' uh ball up my fist???

No comment..

You know the format for the

You know the format for the big east championship is changing again if the 4 teams with double byes all lose. WV wins big though.

Maybe.. It, like all

Maybe.. It, like all defensive assignments, depends on the matchup. I think he will guard Stevenson tonight. KJ starts at PF and can defend them pretty well. Welligton Smith defends the C. Butler usually defends the SG unless he is an absolute stud, then Ebanks defends him to keep Butler out of trouble.. It all depends but I think he is on Lance tonight.

Right now, Lance is carrying this Cincy team. I am worried that if anyone else starts scoring, WVU is in trouble.

Lance Stephenson can be a

Lance Stephenson can be a big time scorer in the NBA, I can imagine him being a BEAST in iso plays.....He has a great 1st step and some good handles.

i was thinking the same

i was thinking the same thing about lance iggy. you can see the potential. his handles are nice and he has very good court vision. he reminds me of evans because he can handle and pass and is strong and can get to the hole very well. dont think hes as good as eveans but he does some of the same things evans can do. lances change of direction is very very nice as well

Yea I like that Tyreke

Yea I like that Tyreke comparison...I went from comparing him to Paul Pierce to a Ron Artest type, but that Tyreke comparison is very good.

Lance is still very rough

Lance is still very rough around the edges, but he is fearless and isn't thinking twice about taking the shot when it counts. That can't be taught, once he refines his game, I really think he is going to be a force in college, and later the NBA.

I think Lance is a large AI

I think Lance is a large AI wanna be.. He pounds the ball through the floor then passes for a shot or throws up something crazy. Iverson used to dribble for 20 seconds and either shoot or pass for a quick shot.

Yeah very similar, though if I remember Kobe's was more off balanced. Butler was a bit more squared.
