Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition
Watched half of the exhibition last night:
Archie Goodwin will either be a star by the end of the season, or a ballhog that would make Ramel Bradley jealous. There will be no in-between. For those who missed the All Access on Thursday, Cal was exceptionally hard on Goodwin and Harrow both and it will be interesting to see who finishes the season at PG.
I'm not sold on Alex Poythress. He has the skills to be a solid player, but his motor is highly questionable. Hopefully Cal gets it straightened out.
When Nerlens and WCS were on the floor at the same time, the whole dynamic of the team changed. Nerlens actually had a better offensive game than I thought he would.
I see Wiltjer having a sophomore slump. His main strength is shooting the ball and this year more teams will be geared up to stop him. He struggles rebounding and on defense which may limit his actual minutes in a game as well.
Northwood's head coach was Rollie Massimino. Didn't even know he was still around.
I'm not trying to be negative, but this is going to be a learning curve with really no veteran leadership to speak of on this team. This team reminds me of Cal's second team after Wall, Cousins, etc. Good building blocks in place with a couple more ingredients for a run at the 2014 trophy.
