    It's certainly early and we still haven't seen Wall play against legit competition, but this is the reason that I look forward to the UofL-UK game this year. They play one of the best zones in D1 and they have the shot blockers (Samuels and Jennings) to back it up. If UK can't find the outside shooter and zone-killer to replace Meeks, they will struggle against good zone teams.

    Do you have any insight regarding Tobias Harris? He really seems to be key to both the Cats and the Cards (as well as other teams) plans for next season.

    Somebody has shoot as soon as the ball is crossed half court or any time someone passes the ball to them.

    How about that play where he immediately shoots the ball along the baseline with a defender in his face?

    We're going to need somebody to chuck it. Dodson impressed me a lot more than Darius Miller. We need consistent shooting in the worst kind of way. He is probably our best long range threat.

    On an non-UK note, some recruiting classes are starting to shape up:

    UNC:
    PG-Kendall Marshall
    SG-Reggie Bullock
    SF-Harrison Barnes

    Memphis:
    PG-Joe Jackson
    SG-Will Barton
    SF-Jelan Kendrick

    Impressive. Just hope Cal can close on some other recruits besides Poole.

    As for Tobias Harris, it is really anybody's guess. WVU has picked up recruiting him after they lost out on Payne, but there is also Georgia Tech and Syracuse in addition to UK and Louisville. I won't even make a prediction on that one.

    I'm fine with Dodson. He'll learn soon enough which shots to take and which to eschew.

    With this team, we don't need ANYONE "chucking".... we need to take open and smart shots. I think it will be less of an issue with Wall playing, as he'll get quite a few shots.

    Wow, Memphis has the best recruiting class in the nation. Tarik Black (Top 50 prospect) may also be signing with Memphis next week.

    I think the real issue with Memphis is how is Pastner going to do coaching the Tigers. His ability to sell ice to eskimos has been noted, but if he hits a bumpy ride in C-USA and the star power in Memphis falls, how many of his recruits will decide to jump ship?

    Jackson and Kendrick may be locks. Don't know about Barton though. I still think he could open it back up.

    And as has been noted with Wall (and Bledsoe), they are not deep threats. I do think he will improve from this game, but Dodson is probably going to be our best shooter, like it or not. The way Morehead played Kentucky by playing zone is something we are going to have to be used to seeing all season, and if we have somebody who can bust the zone by shooting over it, then it makes us even better.

    I've said all summer that this team will miss Jodie Meeks more than if Patterson left for the NBA. When we lose games, and we will, it will be our shooting from outside. I just hope we can get it all together by March.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Eric Bledsoe wins Freshman of the Week honors. I will go out on the limb and say he won't be the only winner from UK to win this award this season.
