      Eligibility concerns for John Wall and Renardo Sidney. Probably won't end up meaning anything, but still interesting.

      • Word is that we'll have a good amount of people at 'Nova for Hoops Mania tonight, though it's obviously unconfirmed:

        2010: James Bell (verbal, #76 in Rival150), Markus Kennedy (verbal), Cory Joseph (#7 in Rivals150)

        2011: Achraf Yacoubou (verbal, #76 in Rivals150), Mike Glichrist (#1 in Rivals150), Tony Wroten (#9 in Rivals150), Tyrone Johnson (#46 in Rivals150), Desmond Hubert (#54 in Rivals 150), Juan'ya Green. Malcolm Gilbert (#130 in Rivals150) may attend also.

        2012: Amile Jefferson (#7 on Rivals, #21 on ESPN), Kyle Anderson (#23 on ESPN), Savon Goodman (#24 on ESPN), Ryan Arcidiacono, Tariq Carey (consensus #2 2012 prospect in NJ behind Anderson). Omar Calhoun (arguably the top 2012 prospect in NYC) may attend also.


        Joseph, Gilchrist, and Wroten are obviously the big ones but some of the 2012 guys are pretty legit, a lot of other solid 2011 guys are coming, and it's nice to get the commits in. Too bad Rakeem Christmas is rumored not to be attending, word is we're losing ground with him and he's unlikely to come to 'Nova, but still should be a pretty sweet night.

          Funny, how John Calipari is/was the coach of both John Wall and Derrick Rose.

          This will be exploited in 2010...just watch.

            Man am i stoked to see Avery Bradley play. This team is so stacked, anything below an elite 8 is a bust IMO.

              Yeah, I kind of thought the same thing. I'm sure he'll play this year and it'll become an issue after he graduates.

                What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                they get smoked.

                  I wish KU/UT met twice in the regular season.that may be one of the more unnoticed rivalries in college hoops

                          • These players are going to be my favorite ones to watch this year...

                            Devin Ebanks F West Virginia
                            --- Very electric scorer and should only get better with time. His length is tremendous for his size and has an advantage on almost every single matchup.

                            Willie Warren G Oklahoma
                            --- Warren will now be the leader of the squad with Griffen gone. He has a stroke and great leadership but needs to prove to be more of a team minded player.

                            Greg Monroe F/C Georgetown
                            --- If anyone is capable of starting a "rebound" for the historic program, it is Monroe. However, he needs to perform consistently all season long instead of starting out on fire, then cooling down as the season progresses.

                            Trevor Booker F Clemson
                            --- One of the more underrated players in the country, Booker is a tough, big bodied 3 man who is a double double machine. Same mold as former Pitt Panther, DaJuan Blair, just not the same status.

                            Evan Turner F Ohio State
                            --- I'm a homer for Evan Turner, but he is a legit lottery pick next year. It will be interesting to see if he performs the same with the return of David Lighty. He should be even better than last year.

                            • Completely random and kind of a conference homer statement, but two teams that I think could really surprise this year are Seton Hall and Cincinnati. Both have some solid returning talent along with some pretty good players coming in, and I think could challenge to be borderline top 25 teams this season, along with definitely being potential top 6, even top 4 teams in the Big East (which isn't the feat it would have been last year, but still solid).

                              Either team or both could completely implode and not do well, but if things break right I think they'll surprise a lot of people this year and finish considerably better than expected (for reference, Cincy was picked 7 in the Big East preseason and SHU 10). I expect both to challenge for tourney bids though, and getting in would definitely be a big step for those programs.
