Zion is probably the most grounded major star player (on a big national stage program) that I can recall seeing.

 

Seth, can you think of anyone else that is similar to him in terms of his attitude, personality, etc...?

Auburn's decline this year is quietly one of the most surprising stories of the season.

 

They are 17th in Kenpom and are 11th in offense and have been top 10 for most of the year.  Defense has declined some but is still top 50.  But 8 losses?  Crazy.

Don’t worry, Duke will beat NC St, although I expect it to be a tough trap game.

Obviously Duncan and Paul were awesome...    favorite Wake players though were Rodney Rogers (poor guy is paralyzed now), and Randolph Childress (remember the ACCT?).

Everyone seems to love Langford as a Top 10 pick... he's got a lot of improving to do shooting wise... just 27% from 3 for the year.  (And that is with him making 11 of his last 27.)

He will go top 10. Lot of potential there. But he’s a project for sure

Probably be a blue blood top 2 this week. Kentucky embarrassing Tennessee right now.

Kentucky lost at home earlier in the week. They won’t go to #2.

Duke will be 1 and you will probably see UVA 2 and the Zags 3.(or the other way around but UVA should jump over the Zags since they won at UNC this week)

Kentucky probably goes to 4 and Tenn will be 5.

That’s my guess anyway. Had Kentucky beaten LSU, I do think thy vault to #2.

Obviously Duncan and Paul were awesome...    favorite Wake players though were Rodney Rogers (poor guy is paralyzed now), and Randolph Childress (remember the ACCT?).

They had a nice run with NBA guys. Teague, Aminu, and now John Collins all doing things in the league.Never forget the Bullets drafted Kenny Green from Wake in 1985 the pick BEFORE Utah took Karl Malone. Oy. 

 

That '95 ACC tourney run by Childress is the stuff of legends. Killed Carolina in the final, and that image of Jeff McGinnis falling, and Childress waving at him to get up before nailing the three is forever etched in my mind. 

 

As for this year's team, besides making me feel even older with Childress' son and Sharone Wright Jr on the team, they do have a pretty good freshman in Jaylen Hoard, but things don't look good for Danny Manning there, hopefully he lasts a bit longer.
