I never was a big Epps fan, and definitely not a fan of his post-UK actions. He had one moment to really shine at UK -- the 1997 Final Four -- and he failed miserably. He overachieved considering he started as a walk-on, but when we needed him most, he didn't deliver. I've only seen highlights of Hawkins, but he seems quicker and more athletic than Epps was. The one thing I liked about Epps was his toughness.
