    But yeah, if I were a Hawkeye fan I'd be rooting to just win more than 1 conference game, especially because the conference is so loaded this year.
    Really, my goal is to have a better record than Indiana last year. Not look like a better team, just get a better record, but I don't think it's possible.

    • Are these games actually going at like 2am?

        On another note, Stanley Robinson is awesome. He is such an athletic freak. 6'8 with super long arms and he can jump incredibly high. If he keeps playing like this I could easily see him becoming a first round pick in the NBA draft. Ideally he's a project guy who needs to work on his shooting but can dunk and play defense.

        He'd be perfect in New Orleans. Paul would salivate being able to throw alley oops to Robinson.
        No, he was downright bad in the first ten minutes of the game. He had 2-3 turnovers and was playing horrible defense. He started to turn it on after that.

              UCLA has like 0 talent compared to most years. Malcolm Lee is the only player on that team that's worth anything

              • I'm getting pumped for Memphis vs. KU. Looking forward to Elliot Williams' debut as a Tiger.

                I don't think it will be as close as some people are perceiving though..

                  I'll say Kansas by 12.

                  And Elliot Williams already had his debut, he had 19 against Jackson State. His transfer to Memphis was really underrated, he's going to be really good.

                    I'm debating whether or not I want to include 2010-2012 classes instead of only 2010, so if you think we should consider all classes, let me know in the thread.

                    • I'm in, I think we should just do this class personally. I don't know enough about the upcoming classes yet.

Interesting guy because he's always been a big, strong, interior guy and he's transitioning to the perimeter to play a little more of a face up game because he's only 6'6. Apparently he's a bull driving into the paint and is sporting a much improved jumper.
                        Looks like Pinkston is going to pop for Tennessee, according to the NY Daily News. Wonder what this means for their shot at Tobias Harris.

                          • Greg Monroe may have just hit the game winning shot for the Hoyas but I'm not sold on him at all as a pro prospect. He doesn't seem to be focused clearly while on the floor. He's great when the ball is in his hands but when it's not he just seems lost.

                            Defensively, he improved while the game progressed but he was owned by Lavoy Allen at the beginning.

                              Yes but then again so did Jerome Dyson. Oriakhi is a young freshman and most freshman struggle early in the season so I'm not too concerned.

                              I don't think we're as good as last year and we're very young but this team is loaded. Kemba Walker will be a top draft pick if he stays another year. Blazing speed and a tremendous defender. Dyson is a very talented scorer and if he can stay healthy he could be a first round pick. Majok when he starts to play has it in him to be a top 5 top pick. He is athletic with a jump shot and is 6'11. Robinson as I mentioned before is an athletic freak who will get drafted.

                              Even Oriakhi as you mentioned who has struggled thus far is talented. If he stays 2-3- years he should be in great shape to get drafted. The guy already has an NBA type of body.

                                Oh, I totally agree with you throughout your entire statement. I'm a UCONN fan myself and I'm excited for Majok to finally play. Stanley Robinson's length and athleticism will get him drafted alone. He blocked one shot last night that just looked unreal.
