    Re: Merged: UK Basketball

    Somebody name me the last high impact Juco player not only that has made an impact at Kentucky, but for that matter anywhere.

    Just based off of the Juco's I have seen at Kentucky:

    Antwan Barbour
    Rekalin Sims
    Kevin Galloway
    Josh Harrellson

    Anytime you take a Juco, you are settling for mediocrity.

    Wmr, I have a nice piece of property you might be interested in. Arizona. Great ocean view. Sad to say, I have seen tons of juco games. And the number of high major players I saw was limited. Most of those guys are actually playing at high major schools.

    And they were all touted as the "next great thing" just like this kid (apparently). Louisville has gone the same route in the past when defections and recruiting misses have piled up and its never worked well either. Really I can't remember the name of any of the Jucos so they didn't leave much of an impression.

    Dale Brown was a pretty decent juco guy for Kentucky. Of course that was 18 years ago.

    I think relaxed admissions and high school "help" on test scores has pretty well thinned the juco ranks of the great players who couldn't qualify. I doubt that was the case 15 or 20 years ago.

    The only one I remember that had pretty good acolades was Antwan Barbour. Outside of the fact that he was from Kentucky, he was also the top Juco player in the nation. IIRC, it was between Kentucky and Louisville for his services and Kentucky won out.

    Konner Tucker is just another Marc Maggard Flavor of the Month. Just like Hunter McClintock and Darius Smith. I enjoy reading MM, but he does like to push players who are in the mold of what we already have.

    Anyway, another ugly game for the Cats. Meeks' +/- would be abysmal if they keep such things.

    Agreed, Meeks has tried to take over the game and subsequently has spent time on the bench.

    The fact that they are only down five at the half is somewhat encouraging. Kentucky has been a second half team this season and a run would be nice.

    PS: If Kentucky does lose the game, wearing black and blue uniforms on likely the final game barring NIT would be the definition of irony.

    So has IU, its usually in the second half when IU rolls over and dies.

    The last major impact JuCo I remember in college basketball was Steve Francis. Obviously that does not happen very often.
