Wish I felt differently.
They may still limp in,but the committee will use Noel's absence against UK if they're on the bubble at all.
I know middle schoolers who could physically dominate Ryan Harrow. He'll be a good backup for Andrew Harrison next season I suppose.
I'll be glad when Archie Goodwin leaves UK. First UK player of the Cal era I've felt that way about. One of my least favorite UK players ever.
And don't even get me started on Poythress.
Ah, but the flipside of this argument is the fact that UK is the defending Champion works in UK's favor. Also, Calapari's history of his teams advancing in the tournament - even pre UK - should also play a factor with the commitee. In a survive and advance
scenario, his teams are always a tough out.
So, yes, I agree with Scrap here. But in any case, Wiltjer should continue to come of the bench. He's the sixth man of the year in NCAA B-Ball, for sure.
