Some really good games tonight. Jack Mac taught Teague something about shooting. He is the best perimeter shooter in the country, without doubt.
Booker was doing a prety good Dominique impersonation on the Blue Devils, he put Zoubek and Singler on the same poster. Things have really tightened up in the ACC.
Oklahoma finished strong and had to come back against A&M.
Texas really needs this game against Missouri, and they might not get it. Looks like Pittman dropped the Jenny Craig diet too.
Nova held off a fierce comeback by Providence. Good win for them. Cunningham is definitely not at full strength.
UCLA is killin' USC.
No comment on the MN/MSU game.
Teague did ok from inside the arc and at the line. He was penetrating which is what allowed Wake to hold off a solid Clemson team earlier this year. But beyond that, he was bad. What's more telling to me is his assists line. Not just last night, but in general it's been dropping. He's never really been a pass-first guard, but his assist numbers have been on the decline. At least he's not been a turnover machine.
Have you cooled a bit on your incredible projection of where he'll be drafted?
Teague is not a NBA impact player. Take him in the first round and the rest of the league will laugh.
Some people catch a game or two, or see the highlights and hop on the rising star. His star is falling, as it should, especially in terms of future NBA success. Three weeks ago some talking heads were talking about him being the best player in the country. He's not even the best player on his team.
I've cooled a bit on him, but not that much. I still think he'll be a lottery pick. Sounds like you think he won't be drafted in the first round?
