    No objections to that team. Good for Watford, he deserved it. Hope he stays for another year, wouldn’t be surprised to see him declare without an agent, just so he can get some feedback/info from NBA teams on what he needs to work on and what the NBA sees him as. Every NCAA junior with NBA aspirations should do that, since you get one freebie declaration. But I don’t think he’d lose anything coming back and being a top option on a team that’s sure to get a lot of exposure next season.

    I think it would be smart for him to declare, and not get an agent, for that very reason.

    Always great to get feedback like that.

    I think he’s going to have a MONSTER year next year so he’ll get drafted high.

    Laffy, I agree. Declare, but don’t get an agent. See what your market value is. Would he be a first rounder? No way, even though he had a great tournament.

    UK-Louisville will be awesome.

    I guess we will finally be able to put Chet’s theory that “all Louisville fans are UK fans” to test.

    Kentucky vs. Louisville game should be played with chain nets on blacktop.

    Anthony Davis? Come on? Cody Zeller far outplayed him for the 2nd time this season.

    And to think Purdue let what appeared to be certain victory slip away in the final two minutes against Kansas…Was Purdue a Final Four team? Kansas doesn’t belong. North Caroline lost their point guard..Syracuse lost Fab Melo. Kentucky will not face the teams in the Final Four that had the most talent. Might as well hand the trophy to them now. IU will be the only team that gave Kentucky a true test.

    Agreed Harvard. Although I think OSU could give them a run. Unfortunately, OSU doesn’t bode well against KU-style teams – they were 1-3 this year against KU and MSU.

    However, we’ve seen them destroy a talented Duke team that likes to get out and play and is more focused on O than D.

    If they can get by KU I think they could battle UK for the title.

    I don’t think KU would stand a chance against the ‘Cats.

    Geoff, was the Kansas game the game that Sullinger missed due to injury? If so, that would make a big difference this time around.

  • Jay Gregg #12

    Yes, Sullinger did miss the game against Kansas. I believe that OSU lost by 4 points, at Lawrence.

    Yes, Sullinger was out, it was at KU, but they lost by 11…

    For what it’s worth, I predict OSU will win this game. I think they are a better team. Obviously Sullinger makes a huge difference. I just see a lot of similarities to how KU and MSU are constructed this year and their style of play. Both of those teams also have experienced tacticians at the helm.

    Should be a decent game, but I see OSU matching up better against Kentucky.

    How about the 75 Hoosiers? Scott May breaks him arm and that was the only reason IU did not win back-to-back undefeated NCAA Championships. You have to have a little luck to win the championship.
