    Shai jumped all the way up to 19 and from what I’ve seen has actually even better than that.

      Is there any chance that SGA starts at PG over Green?

    2. blackmilk23

      No. Simply because Shai can play offense and defense 1-3 and Quade is too good not to start.

      In some ways thats good because it gets both guys on the floor but on the other hand it’s bad because that type of logic stunted Briscoe’s growth.

      Quade is better than Shai right now. From what I understand this is based on upside. Shai is an athletic 6’6 pure PG. Quade is a moderately athletic 5’11 pure PG. One is just viewed as having more potential.

    Any news about Vanderbilt’s injury?
