U18 European Championship: Top Prospects

Thu, 12/29/2016 - 10:23pm

Samsun's FIBA U18 European Championship was marked by the absences of NBA prospects such as Luka Doncic (99', 6-7, G – Slovenia), Rodions Kurucs (98', 6-8, SF – Latvia), Omer Yurtseven (98', 7-0, PF/C – Turkey), Onuralp Bitim (99', 6-6, SG, Turkey) and Isaac Bogna (99', 6-8, PG/SG – Germany). With that said, the level of talent was actually pretty good, with many players having the chance to show their skills.

There wasn't a ton of movement this week in our Power 16 Rankings but Louisville did make a significant leap after taking down Kentucky just before Christmas.

Aside from one or two marquee matchups on Saturday, it was a relatively quiet week for most of our Power 16 teams. Kentucky took home the win in a wild one against UNC on Saturday thanks to a Herculean effort from Malik Monk and UCLA dominated Ohio State to once again prove just how legit they are. Duke was the only team from last week's rankings that didn't suit up this week as they got some much needed rest after what was a pretty busy early season schedule.

Not a lot of movement in this week's version of the Power 16. The only top 10 team to take a loss last week was Butler, who dropped on to Indiana State on Wednesday but then followed that up with a double digit win against Cincinnati.

This weekend gave college hoops fans no shortage of games and key matchups to watch. UCLA vs. Kentucky was the gem of Saturday's slate but it was only one of 5 games that featured two teams from last week's Power 16 Rankings squaring off against one another. The ACC should be flying high this week after taking down the Big 10 in their annual challenge for the first time in the last seven seasons and UCLA fans should be excited about how far their team can go after a convincing win in Lexington.

Holiday Tournaments were a major theme during the Thanksgiving break. The Tar Heels went to Maui and brought home the title while Baylor came back from an early 20 point deficit to take down Louisville in the Battle for Atlantis. While we still don't know what exactly to make of some teams through the season's first few weeks, there are a few that are separating themselves from the pack.
