Anyone see this UK vs. Ole Miss game? Nerlens Noel was credited with 12 blocks and 7 of them were with 4 fouls in the second half, Marshall Henderson had 21 points when he shot only 5-19, Ladarius White was huge with 22 points on 9-16 and 3 of 3 from long range, and Archie Goodwin finally hit his free throws 12-14 while scoring 24 points on 6-11 shooting.
Who's outing was most surprising?
I was personally surprised that Henderson scored 21 points while shooting so poorly, this kid really bigs it I think he will be huge come March.
Shannon Spake. She was looking delicious.
lol true dat, I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed she's looking good these days.
I like the soph Ladarius White. I think he could be an NBA Prospect either next year or his senior season. 6-5/6-6 athletic shooting guard. He looks nice.
marshall Henderson doesn't sit right with me... I don't like players that only can shoot 3's... and shooting like 35 footers... wtf is that... I know he can really shoot but still
How big Marshall Hendersons leash is. At halftime he argues with the coaches and walks away while they are talking to him, he took a ton of bad shots especially that DEEP 3 with 1:15 to go that hurt their chances of winning.
He looked like a jack @$$ doing that. If it were any other coach I think they would tell him to hit the locker room
That dude is particularly hard to root for. I watched the little piece ESPN did on him before the game, and it's pretty evident that he doesn't have a humble bone in his body.
To be fair, that was the first time I'd seen him play, but he took a LOT of bad shots.
Yeah I mean I like it when players play with an edge but he's borderline douchebag, chucking ice 95mph into the student section is also a big no no to me
Nerlens Noel was incredible to me...blocking 2 dunks with 4 fouls in a tight game was pretty special.
And yes ^^ I agree....First game I've watched of Marshall and he seems like a pretty big dick head....arguing with your coach, laughing at players after drawing fouls, throwing that ice in the stands!?!? wtf..
There were some good players in this game, but come on.. Nerlens Noel had 12 blocks. 12 BLOCKS!! Blocked shots started being recorded in 1973-1974, and only 18 players have had more in a game than Nerlens Noel's 12. None of those players are Anthony Davis. I really think he has the potential to be better defensively than the BROW!
One of those players who have had 12 blocks plays for Stanford and is only 6'7;)
Kyle Wiltjer had a statline he isn't likely to reach again anytime soon with 26 Pts, 7 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl. Noel was still the most impressive. He has really been showing why people say he is a potential top pick. I think Noel could possibly be better defensively than the Brow but mostly because he will easily pack more muscle on while the Brow could add 20 lbs and still be skinny. Offensively he will never come close to Davis though and that is what you really want from a top overall selection.
Jon Hood...he got playing time in the FIRST half.
Wiltijer might not have 26 often but 20 is very doable and likely considering he will be the number one option on offense and he's a very very good shooter
a lot stuck out to me last night but the #1 thing that didnt necesarally suprise me but intrigue me was how alex poythress played. he finally had a REALLY good game. cant wait to see if he continues this for the rest of the season. if so, maybe he could be a lottery pick this year?
He should've never left the lotto in the first place IMO.
If people are drastically moving prospects up and down draft boards, shifting them from '13 to '14, based on game to game performance, then they're completely overlooking what makes a lot of these prospects so intriguing: their potential and how they project to the next level.
He still has the athleticism, physical tools, strength, defensive potential and a developing inside/outside skill set.
The same goes for Archie Goodwin. Even if he has a bad game here or there, he still projects well because he's a tremendous athlete with long arms, defensive potential and natural slashing ability at a position in the NBA that is lacking in depth. Even if he is raw, those are still highly valued traits.
