This Wednesday is the 2012 edition of the Blue/White game which means that basketball season is just a few short weeks away. While Big Blue Madness offers all the bells, whistles, and projection screen floors the Blue/ White game often offers a more clear picture of the team. This season we need that more than any year prior. We know the team has talent, but with only one major player returning, how are these guys going to mesh? Here’s what I’m looking forward to seeing in this Wednesday’s game.
More of the Nerlens/Willie Cauley-Stein Battle:
The twin towers are going to be wreaking havoc on opponents all season long by the look of things. So the chance to see the duo go head-to-head one last time is appealing. WCS gained the upper hand during Big Blue Madness following a monster jam that resulted in Nerlens earning the football helmet a couple of days later. While Nerlens got his share of shots in you know he is going to be looking to come up with some more big blocks and show a bit more offense in the Blue/White game. Either way seeing the two go head to head should be exciting.
Will a leader emerge?
Who is going to be the guy that gets the ball at the end of the game? Last year you knew MKG would make the big play when the time came. The year before Brandon Knight was the one capable of hitting the big shot. This year that answer isn’t so clear. With so many young guys on the squad it’s hard to see who is going to step up and deliver when the game is on the line. While a scrimmage may not be the best place to see this quality illustrated perhaps if the game is close late we can see which guys are willing to try and end the game.
Will Brian Long Appreciate It?
Wednesday is sure to be a fun night for Cats fans. Not only will we get the second part of ESPN all access but we get to see our team take the floor for the second time this year. So what are you most looking forward to seeing this Wednesday?
