    In the college game, there is a debate to be had. I'm on the Wall side still but I know plenty of people who know a lot about basketball that say Knight is the better college player. The 3 point shot is such a game changer in the college game. See: VCU

    Very true. As this debate has gone on I definitely see what both bring to the table. I can understand why people say Knight in college. The 3 point shot is definitely a game changer I just can't choose Knight over Wall simply because he has a better stroke.


    UK down 1 with 10 seconds left I want Wall with the ball.

    UK down 2 with 10 seconds left I want Wall with the ball.

    UK down 3 with 10 seconds left I want Knight with the ball but just barely.

    I also believe the athleticism and explosiveness of the team last year contributed to the turnovers that plagued the team and Wall last year. That team had the ability for exciting plays that sometimes failed and sometimes they were trying to do too much but they were so good they could afford that luxury. This year's team has to rely on great defense and getting something from every possession so I think ball possession is way more important this year than last year. They cannot afford to make the same mistakes as last year and expect to win. The play of Liggins, Miller and Harrellson has helped tremendously also. The Wall/Knight debate could go on and if UK wins it all the debate will rage further. At this point it will take a lot for me to sway from Wall but I am indeed impressed by Knight's play and growth from game 1 to now. And yeah, I'd love to see him on the Lakers.

    “This team, I think it has more desire,” said junior swingman DeAndre Liggins, one of the few Wildcats who opted to stick around last spring. “Not that many egos involved, just all know our roles this year and played well.”

    I guess D.Miller thought there were a lot of egos as well...

    What team doesn't have egos? I wouldn't think egos are the cause for last year's team's loss. Seems kind of ironic that Liggins, one of college basketball's best trash talkers, is commenting about egos.

    You made it seem like the egos got in the way of team play on the court. 35-3 would tell you a different story.

    I said earlier this season that Knights game probably translated to the college game better than Wall but that doesn't make him the better player. Really they are like apples and oranges. Would I trade knight for Wall for tomorrow night's game? Yes but it's not an easy decision.

    So....does the UConn game tell us anything about BK's ability to play in the NBA? Should an NBA scout be concerned that he's 99.9% right-handed?

    On the bright side he did nail another buzzer beater tonight.

    Or the fact that he's in no man's land when he gets run off the three point line?
