Wow, UConn is going to be SO fun to watch this year. They play such a crazy tempo now that Thabeet is gone, and Thabeet was a guy who ran the floor pretty well for a 7'3 center.
Walker has electric speed, Dyson is fast, Robinson is a hell of an athlete, and when Ater Majok comes back he is an amazing athlete too for a big man. Oriakhi already looks like an NBA player with his size and athletic ability.
It's going to be a really fun year. Granted I don't think we'll be nearly as good as last year.
Mississippi State was the first ranked team to be upset. They lost to Rider although Jarvis Varnado dominated. I expect Mississippi State to be better when Renardo Sidney and John Riek are eligble though
Hard to believe Mississippi State lost but you get that stuff so early in the year. I don't have much doubt they'll be a top 25 team when it really matters.
UK was so-so in the opener. Patterson and Bledsoe played great, everyone else was a little iffy but you'll have that. For playing so rough it's nice to have a pretty solid win over a team that should be in the NCAAT.
I knew Rotnei Clarke could shoot but it's nuts to hit 50+, I don't care who you're playing.
I swear, I love college basketball. Can't wait for Tuesday with 24hrs of gloriousness.
