Re: 2012-13 College Basketball Discussion Thread

Notorious, I've been saying Michigan is the best team all year. But Duke is pretty formidable as well.

Flip Pressey's draft stock isn't great. Probably a late 1st round pick, or a 2nd round pick. Lack of height, lack of finishing around the rim, and lack of a jumpshot. Will be problems. However, he is a tremendous point guard, and playmaker. Really hard to guard 1-on-1. Explosive penetration.

Bowers is probably a 2nd round pick, at best. I think the knee injury will hurt him. He's not that big for a 6'9 PF. Good shooter, though. And a smart player. That might get him drafted.

They both played out of their minds last night. They didn't finish though which really pissed me off. They were up 9 with like two minutes to go and they let it slip away. What a game that was though.

Re: 2012-13 College Basketball Discussion Thread

Pressey will be a late first round pick at best.

Like Mikey said, he's small and isn't really that great of a scorer. Sure he can get some baskets but I feel like he can be a much better scorer than he is. Him being undersized already hurts his draft stock and the lack of a consistent jumper, doesn't make it any better. Most likely he'll be a mid second rounder unless he has a really great tournament showing.

Re: 2012-13 College Basketball Discussion Thread

I wasn't expecting him to go that high. Missouri doesn't have NBA type players but they are unique. I think that helps them. They are bonafied college players. Pressey doesn't need to score cause he has Bell and Ross. Bowers doesn't need to rebound all that much because Oriakhi is a great rebounder. Missouri plays as a team and it seems to work pretty well. They just plain out blew the game last night.

Re: 2012-13 College Basketball Discussion Thread

Yeah Mizzou has never really produced a good NBA player. They've produced a lot of role players, but never really a player that can be a consistent starter.

Linus Kleiza? Probably the best pro player from Mizzou in recent years.

I do like Mizzou, though. I think they're a contender for reaching the Final Four.

Re: 2012-13 College Basketball Discussion Thread

ACC play has started... WOOP!!

FSU survived after being up big all game on Clemson. Exciting finish to a FSU dominated game, holding on in the end. Trevor's lil bro Devin is a senior now and looking to have a big year. Sure he will.

On my Canes side I hope Durand Scott steps the fuck up this year and Reggie Johnson will be back soon tearing shit up. Rion Brown could have a breakout year. Already got a big non-conference win over Mich St., so far so good.

I can see the ACC being deep in the field this year. If NC State can tighten up on defense and gel a bit more by tourny time, they'll be one of the most dangerous teams out there.

SEND IT IN JEROME!

Re: 2012-13 College Basketball Discussion Thread

Damn good game just took place between Syracuse and Louisville. Syracuse with the upset, Louisville with some stupid turnovers down the stretch, particularly on their last two possessions. Peyton Siva finished with 10 TO's today. So far some good games ESPN's showing.
