“The First Weekend Without Basketball’s” Saturday News and Views

 

I don’t know about all of you KSR readers, but I already miss college basketball. For the first Saturday in months, there were no college basketball games for us to watch on television. Though many have been able to ease the pain of the void by filling it with afternoons and evenings of golf and baseball, there is no denying that an initial letdown occurs following the national championship game. We go from the most intense month of the year in college basketball, March Madness, to virtually no basketball at all. Many of us have our eyes firmly planted on the coaching carousel and recruiting tidbits for the moment. Today was a rather slow day even on that front, as we experience a bit of the “calm before the storm” with some major 2012 recruiting decisions on the horizon. Speaking of…

 

– Tonight provides a stage for many of the players Kentucky fans are watching intently to showcase their talents one last time before making their final decision. Shabazz Muhammad, Nerlens Noel and Anthony Bennett are all taking part in the Nike Hoops Summit, which tipped off around 10 p.m. ET on Fox Sports Networks. The three potential future Wildcats will be joined tonight by Kentucky commitment Archie Goodwin. Expect a full recap on the performances of each of these players tomorrow morning/early afternoon.

 

– In case you weren’t already sold on the talent of Shabazz Muhammad, one NBA scout in attendance at the Hoop Summit spoke glowingly about Muhammad to Yahoo. “He’s the only one who can play in the NBA tomorrow.”

 

In UK sporting news, the #1 ranked men’s baseball team dropped their first home game this afternoon against #10 ranked Ole Miss by a final score of 9-3. After a come from behind victory on Friday night, the Bat Cats were unable to solidify the series with the 2nd win today. Fortunately for the Cats, they will have the chance to take 2 out of 3 from the Rebels in a 1 p.m. contest at Cliff Hagan Stadium. If you haven’t made it out to one of the baseball game yet, take a break from Keeneland tomorrow and support the #1 ranked team in the country. The atmosphere is rumored to be incredible and the team is riding an impressive 29-3 record. There has never been a better time to jump on the Kentucky baseball bandwagon than right now (if you aren’t already on it).

 

– The UK Softball team also has a chance to take a series tomorrow from South Carolina in a 1 p.m. home game. The softball team evened up the series behind the stellar pitching of senior Rachel Riley. Riley not only tossed her first shutout of the season in a 7-0 victory, but she also drove in a home run to help her cause. The softball team has struggled this season, following a tremendous outing last year. With the win in the rubber match tomorrow, they could take their 2nd SEC series of the season and build momentum heading into a stretch of tough conference games.

 

-The No.24 ranked UK gymnastics team finished the NCAA Champaign Regional in fifth place with a score of 194.750. The finish, unfortunately, was not enough to move the team on to the NCAA championships. The team is only slated to lose 2 seniors though, and following a record breaking season with some of the highest individual and team scores, look for the team to have a strong campaign again next season.

 

In case you missed it this morning, Alex Oriakhi has made it public knowledge that he will in fact be giving Calipari and Kentucky an official visit later this month. The UCONN transfer, who will be eligible to play next season, will be in Lexington on Friday, April 20th. Per an unnamed source of a source,  he is rumored to make an appearance at Keeneland.

 

– In the news that excited me most on the day, Kyle Wiltjer tweeted that “people need to stay tuned, we have our best work coming your way haha.” I can only assume that he is referring to a new WBA video. If that is the case, we are all in for another treat.

 

– Rich Brooks kept the sports world on edge by letting us know that he golfed with Mike and Shelia Swartz. The course was wet, but the temperature was about 55. He shot 82 with an eagle on par 5 on the 16th hole. Retirement looks good on you, Coach. (p.s. If you don’t follow former UK football coach Rich Brooks on Twitter, you are missing out. When he’s not tweeting about tomatoes and golf, well…he’s not tweeting. But it’s entertaining in a strange way).

 

– Congratulations to former Kentucky Wildcat Rajon Rondo. Rondo of the NBA’s Boston Celtics has now recorded 10+ assists in the last 16 games, passing John Stockton (15 straight in 1995) for the longest streak in the last 20 years. 

 

– And finally, the UK Football team completed their first full spring scrimmage this afternoon. According to those on hand for the scrimmage, QB Maxwell Smith showed well for himself. Smith threw for 228 yds, including a 51-yard bomb to the hands of wideout E.J. Fields. Running back Raymond Sanders was also impressive, drawing some praise from his head coach. Mark you calendars as the official Spring Game is slated for April 21st at 6 p.m.

    Wow team USA looks weak. Shabazz is getting outplayed by Wiggins-who looks like the real deal by the way!!!, Archie looks ok, but Noel is not manning the post. You got to love his potential. Shabazz looks like a Ball hog. Maybe not the right fit for team basketball. Kyle Anderson sucks so bad, that Bazz might just decide to commit to Uk.

    Interesting notes from tonight…

    According to ESPN’s Chad Ford…Nerlens Noel slightly bigger than Anthony Davis. 6’11 in shoes. 6’10 in socks. 7-4 wing is same as Davis. Not particularly great news for Shabazz Muhammad. Under 6′ 6 in shoes. 6’4.5 in socks. 6’11.25 wing however. A bit small for SF in NBA.

    Net: Must get Noel.

    @2… I live in Atlanta and the Carolina Hurricanes hockey post game show took forever down here.

    The messed up thing is the only people who like hockey in the A’town is yankess that have moved down here. It’s obvious the majority of A’town doesn’t like hockey since the thrashers and flames both failed down here. It was bad enough thrashers games were always on TV taking up good airtime but now we get twice as much of that awful sport on TV between Nashville and Carolina’s hockey teams.

    International game is much more progressed than the US game. Athleticism isn’t everything outside the US. At the end of the day this game is about shooing, scheming and size folks. I love the driving, dishing and dunking as much as anybody else. But without the shooting to keep it honest, they’ll zone you out of it everytime.

    Yeab without a doubt. Just look at us in the beginning of the year compared to the end. We’re always a completely different team in February/march than November/December. Do all of these international players just go straight into professional international leagues/nba rather than try the college ranks??

    Worst case scenario for debate:

    Aside from Darius and Eloy, we lose AD, MKG, Jones, Teague, and Lamb. In addition, we miss on all remaining recruits and Alex Oriakhi.

    This leaves us with 7 spots to fill. We get 4 “replacements”: Poythress, Goodwin, Cauley, and Harrow.

    1) How do we fill those final 3 spots? 2) How would a team with Wiltjer, Poythress, Goodwin, Cauley, and Harrow fare?

    (I know this scenario is unlikely)

    20 – I have the same concern, but I think Cal will coach him into being more of a team player especially if we have other players capable of scoring the ball. A team with Muhammad and a bunch of rebounders and defenders would potentially have an issue with him ballhogging. At the very least, he’d have Wiltjer open for 3 as an option.

    Wow, the Nba scouts said this was the weakest class they had ever seen wear the team USA uniform. I see now, what they were talking about. Give me Bennett, and Noel and call it a class.

    Bazz looks like a ball hog, and will fit in nicely with Kyle Anderson at UCLA and will suck mightily.
    We better pray that Teague comes back, cause Noel is no Davis offensively. He’s got potential.

    Archie looks good , but WIGGINS IS THE TRUTH!!!

    35- I would love for lamb back, but cal told Oriaki that only two players were returning. I assumed it was Teague. It would be killer to have both back, but with Teagues brother already in the league, it might make more sense for him to wait one more year, as next year will be super weak at the Pg position. I don’t know if Lamb can improve his stock as much. I’ll take me both!!

    Maybe Noel is not the answer. BENNETT LOOKS LIKE A MUST GET!! Somebody get Jamal Magloire to call this kid!! Maybe Noel knows he can’t be as good as Davis, so he might go to Gtown or Syracuse with less expectations.

    Not really impressed with the top two targets tonight. Bennett was a man.

    I bet Teague comes back. That being said here’s our lineup with no other recruits:

    Small:
    Harrow 6-0
    Teague 6-2
    Goodwin 6-5
    Wiltjer 6-9
    Poythress 6-8

    Big:
    Teague 6-2
    Goodwin 6-5
    Poythress 6-8
    Cauley 6-11
    Wiltjer 6-9

    I like them both, wiltjers foot speed and defense would need to improve dramatically!
    Otherwise if Teague doesn’t come back just insert him into the second lineup.
    With no other recruits this would be a damn good line up.

    Possibilities:

    Harrow 6-0
    Goodwin 6-5
    Poythress 6-8
    Wiltjer 6-9
    Bennett 6-8

    Realistic, but again wiltjers defense would be a liability.

    Teague 6-2
    Bazz 6-5
    Poythress 6-8
    Noel 6-10
    Bennett 6-8

    A very lethal line up.

    Harrow 6-0
    Goodwin 6-5
    Poythress 6-8
    Noel 6-10
    Bennett 6-8

    This would be sweet!!

    What do you all think?

    Hey, Ally, they pay you by the space? Noel is nowhere near AD. He blocks shots right now, and that’s about it. AD’s hand eye coordination and soft hands are something that Nerlens is sorely missing. There’s no doubt, Noel’s body at this point is better than AD’s was, but he was getting man-handled down low a lot, especially rebounding. You throw in AD’s shot and it’s not even close really. Damn, I’m gonna miss him!

    Bennett is not a center…

    Anyone who doesn’t want Bazz is a moron. The kid is far and away the best player in the class. He shot a ton this game because they were getting blown out and he had to take over. He is not a selfish player and he would make our team way better next year if we had him. he has a non stop motor and rebounds fantastically for a guard. Not wanting him is moronic.



  57. J A Brooks

    I too was a bit disappointed with Noel but he was playing against a 7’0 pro Chinese player so I’m going to cut him some slack. he is no AD tho.

    I am not impressed with Bennett’s attitude at all either. He has some skills for sure but I’ve watched about 10 games of his and I’ve got some major questions. He’s a me first player and hes barely 6’7 in shoes. Id rather have Oriakhi and poythress is a lot better than Bennett IMO

    57- who said Bennett was a center?? He’s a power forward.

    Just because Bazz can score, doesn’t make him a good fit. Cal wants 5 players that can score, not one. This team was special because they believed that, and played that way.

    I watched MKG in over twenty games before he got o Kentucky, and not once did he exhibit the blatant selfishness that Bazz, or Anderson exuded tonight. Just because Bazz can score doesn’t mean his team wins. Look at tonight!!! Call me a moron, but the kid acts like Austin Rivers.
    PASS.

    CKing, you kept listing rosters and putting Bennett in the 5 spot.

    “A very lethal line up.

    Harrow 6-0
    Goodwin 6-5
    Poythress 6-8
    Noel 6-10
    Bennett 6-8”

    You put everyone else in order… but Bennett 5th instead of Noel. To me that reads as if you’re putting him in the 5 spot. Sorry if I somehow misread that.

    And also if you don’t want Bazz then you are the one person in America that doesn’t want him. Cal is dying to get this kid, so why do you keep implying that he’s not a good fit for Cal?

    Did you not watch the McDonalds game? Bazz dominated that game as well and he didn’t take 30 shots either. In the Nike game no one else was scoring… they were getting blown away. He did his best to carry the load. If you wanna chalk that up to him being a ball hog then go ahead but you’re sorely mistaken. Every analyst alive raves about his energy and work ethic and players love playing with him. You’re observations from one game (where he broke the scoring record BTW) are shortsighted and very off base.

    The kid is a legit NBA player right now and the most impact player in the 2012 class. Cal loves him. Scouts love him. His team mates love him. You dislike him… lol

    Shabazz was the only kid on the floor that looked like he could play in the NBA next year. If you don’t want him, you’re crazy. And quit hating on Kyle Anderson so much. Neither one of those players are selfish.

    1:44 am April 8, 2012 Permalink

    Brooks- you may be correct, but the games I have watched of Bazz this year, he looked like he continued to force his shots, rather than letting the shots come to him. He reminds me of Teague arlier in the year.

    His team was getting blown out tonight because they were not playing Team ball, no extra passes, very little patience, and extremely poor spacing. Now this wasn’t bazzs fault on his own, but he and Anderson didnt help by forcing the issue.

    It will take cal to have a Terrence Jones type of relationship to break this kids habits. I see him going to UCLA with Parker and Anderson and failing miserably.

    68- no its not, never to early!!

    72 – Did you read what I wrote??? Or were you too busy already thinking of what you were gonna say next? All I said was quit hating on the kid cause he’s not a selfish basketball player. He and Bazz may have appeared that way to you tonight, but if they didn’t try, who the hell was? Did you watch the game!? This US team was horrible, and you seem to just want to blame it all on Shabazz and Kyle. You’re either hating on Kyle and Shabazz cause you know Kyle won’t be here and Shabazz might not either, or you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. Everybody else, including Cal himself, wants Shabazz to come here but you. And Kyle Anderson can flat out play. You saying he sucks repeatedly really doesn’t help my opinion of what you know about basketball talent. I have no idea why Cal didn’t want Anderson, but I’m sure it wasn’t because he thought he sucked.

    Why are people on here bashing recruits…… Let cal do his work and get together…… The players read shit like this site and uk fans bashing them about a bull shit game…. Davis didn’t look good offensively either till about half way through the season…… Not to mention he didn’t always go after rebounds as tough as he should have early in…… That was the same stuff I saw from Noel today….. He will adjust he is athletic and bigger than AD he will be fine. Show some respect to the kids and don’t be the fans who struggle to win 4 on 4 games at the Y on here bashing players that we are recruiting…….. I want all of them and we will have room after everyone announces

    I was thinking during the game that wherever bazz goes his team will compete. He will “score his.” However, it takes a TEAM to win the title. He would learn that at UK and be a better player for it. I thought Noel played pretty good. He has some nice blocks. It can get frustrating doing it all on D and never even touching the ball on offense…Goodwin is a keeper.

    Everyone please get off Noel’s a$$ have to keep in mind that AD is a special player that does not come around often. Not fair to compare. Let this kid be and when he puts on the blue and white, lets all be excited!!!
