    Rivals doesn't even list Rivers as a PG. Teague is the #1 PG in the 2011 class going by the majority of the 'experts.'

    Targeting the top three

    What are the chances of Kentucky getting the top three prospects in the class of 2011?

    -- Kenneth from Murray
    -----

    Mike Gilchrist will likely choose between Kentucky and Villanova.
    Actually, the chances are pretty good. Mike Gilchrist, Marquis Teague and Quincy Miller all have strong interest in Kentucky.

    The quick handicap on Gilchrist has him choosing between Kentucky and Villanova. Certainly other schools are involved, but these two are considered the favorites (Gilchrist was on hand for Kentucky's midnight madness).

    Teague was expected to commit to Louisville last spring, but the Cardinals program hit some bumps in the road - and then John Calipari took the Kentucky job. Teague, the top point guard in the 2011 class, has to be interested in running Calipari's "Dribble-drive" offense. Along with Louisville and Kentucky, Indiana and Purdue are hot after their top in-state prospect.

    Miller's recruitment appears to be wide open at the moment. Baylor, Duke, Illinois, Kentucky and others are pursuing Miller. Playing in the same travel team program that John Wall played in, Miller hasn't hidden his attraction to the Kentucky program. He even took an unofficial visit to Lexington for Kentucky's matchup against North Carolina.

    I'll be thrilled with Knight and Selby, would be nice if we could get Jones or Leslie next year as well. Lamb would be great as a shooter. Still some solid options remaining. It would be unprecedented to get the top three in a class, but UK really has a great shot in 2011. I think #1 and #3 are near locks to be at UK (Gilchrist, Miller) with Teague a good possibility.

    Can you imagine if we got Knight and Selby, putting them on the wings with Bledsoe running the show. Holy Moly. I like all the names you mention. Need one of the bigs.

    2011 will be a sick class.

    Watch out for Jon Hood to be a contributor in 2010 (next season I mean).

    I'm totally with you, though, JP, I would definitely try to sell Knight and Selby on playing together. The minutes would be there. I wonder if that is Cal's strategy?

    Agreed, the prevailing thought has been that Selby doesn't wanna go where Knight does, but they said the same thing about Bledsoe last year with Wall... guys will wanna have fun winning and both would certainly have the minutes like you said. And we do need to replenish the bigs if we lose Boogie and Pat, so Leslie or Jones, at least one is a must. Everything I've heard is that Leslie is nearly a lock, but he is getting some last-minute pressure to stay at home at NC State. I do think it's very likely we wind up with Knight and Leslie, a good chance on Lamb, Selby in the air. We could get a JUCO big man as well. And, agreed on Hood, he is the kind of guy people will forget about and will be an extremely strong player as a junior and senior and people will wonder where he came from... haha.

    It's been nice to get to experience some 'old school' Kentucky beatdowns this season.

    Reminds me of Ricky P's heyday.

    The only way I see us getting both Knight and Selby would be if Bledsoe goes pro. Even then, if we did have all three, it wouldn't shock me if we had a 3 PG lineup. Cal ran it in Memphis with Derrick Rose, CDR (who could couble over), and Antonio Anderson, who compares skillwise with Liggins.

    I think it has more to do with the coach in charge.

    Cal isn't the type that delights in blowing teams out. Remember when we played Memphis during Tubby's last year and we only lost by 14? We could have lost by a LOT more from watching that game.

    I still remember watching that game and thinking "Wow, I love that style of offense".

    Couple of things:

    1. KSR has pictures of the supposed new uniforms. Not much difference, just the designs within the blue and white.





    2. Enes Kanter, a 5 star center prospect who had committed to Washington about a month ago, reopened and UK is supposedly hot on his trail. Could be a situation like Kliczi from WVU where he may have to sit out for half the season though.

    I think after 9:05, that may have been the highest rated game in the Colonial Conference history between VCU-George Mason.

    Guess the stat line... 8 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block, 1 steal, and a season high 26 minutes.

    Cal said he is starting to get asked questions about this kid from NBA people and that he may need to begin starting him.

    Liggins is the man, WMR, I've been a fan of this kid since he arrived, and I know he had a rough go of it last year but it was obvious the talent was there... glad that he's really adjusted to his role as the "live wire" off the bench, the energy certainly picks up when he hits the floor.

    Cal is obviously a big fan of Liggins' makeup. Even while he was in the academic doghouse, he was still receiving praises from the coach.

    Personally, I could not be happier for the kid. Not only does he always volunteer for the toughest defensive assignments, but Liggins is usually in the game at key times when the outcome may still be in doubt.

    It is not who starts the game, it is who finishes the game that is most important to me.
