    That dunk Kyle Kuric threw down on Martin (ND) was just plain sick!!! (and the 'T' was just a terrible call)

    Btw what are guys thinking of Kuric, can he make it to the NBA?
    He has been improving since2.5 years now (in his Junior season), Pitino seems to rely on him and push him to be more consistent...
    One of the most athletic SG in the country, hitting more than 50% of his shots, reliable when shooting the 3. He has no PG skills though, i.e.he will have to play SG at the next level (he is 6'4, like Redick for instance)

    What are your thoughts on this guy forumers?

    On Wisconsin! The Badgers have the Buckeyes number this year in sports. The Badger football team knocked off the number one Buckeyes back in the fall and now the Badger basketball team does the same! Taylor was shooting lights out from 3. Leuer had 12 points and 6 rebound, Josh Gasser had 11 points and 7 rebounds, and Mike Brusewitz had 12 points off the bench.

    it was aterrific second halfby Wisconsin over #1 OSU.

    here's a quick rundown of a few other notable performances from yesterday ...

    Notre Dame played a beautifully balanced team game. all five starters scored in double figures, though none scored more than 13 points. additionally, none took more than 11 shots nor less than 6. what perfect symmetry! off the bench, Cooley was near-perfect, as well. in 16 minutes, he scored 18 points on 9-10 shooting, snagged 8 boards, blocked a shot, had a steal, and committed ZERO turnovers. a beautiful performance by the Fighting Irish.

    Jimmer Fredette scored 17 (of his 23) points in the final 9 minutes to help BYU take care of business against rival Utah. it was a quietly efficient night for the White Death. however, backcourt mate Jackson Emery may have had a better night, scoring 17 points, snaring 4 rebounds, dishing out 5 assists, and collecting 6 steals with ZERO turnovers in 39 minutes.

    Chandler Parsons was largely ineffective offensively against Tennessee, despite playing a game-high 37 minutes. he was noticeably hobbled by a leg injury, but he gutted it out and played tough defense.

    Tanner Smith had another solid game for the poor Clemson team against UNC. the athletic two guard had 11 points on 4-8 shooting, gathered 7 rebounds, had 4 assists, and 2 steals with just 1 turnover. he's an unheralded, but very gifted, player who is in a bad situation (in my opinion).

    in the same game, Tyler Zeller had a quietly effective 10 points and 7 rebounds for UNC.

    the Arkansas Razorbacks did a good job of gettingRotnei Clarke the ball, and the sweet-shooting junior delivered, going 5-6 from 3-point range en route to scoring a game-high 25. Clarke went 7-10 from the floor and a perfect 6-6 from the free throw line as he led the Hogs to a win over struggling LSU. Arkansas, themselves a poor team, is now undefeated on the year when Clarke scores 15 points or more ... yet the negroes don't like to give him the ball. "weird," huh?

    for LSU in the above-mentioned game, talented freshman wing Matt Derenbecker scored a team-high 13 points on 5-11 shooting.

    Mickey McConnell had a near-flawless night for St. Mary's in a win over San Francisco. the senior point guard scored 19 points (5-10 from the floor, 7-8 from the line), 1 rebound, 1 steal, 8 assists and just 2 turnovers in 40 minutes. co-point guard Matthew Dellavedova had 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists. but he also had 5 turnovers to spoil his effort.

    finally, Vinnie asked about Kyle Kuric ... Kuric once against was incredibly efficient for Louisville, scoring a game-high 23 points on 9-15 from the floor. the athletic two guard added 5 boards, 4 assists, and a steal with ZERO turnovers in the game. will he get a look by the NBA? maybe ... he's got a tough row to hoe, however, as White Americans are not looked kindly upon by the Association. especially short White American guards.Edited by: Jimmy Chitwood

    Florida State's Chris Singleton - who has had some recent outbursts - broke his foot yesterday.

    I know they have another young, skinny forward that's black.. but I wonder if Jon Kreft will get a few more minutes? He's versatile.

    Watching majority white Duke dismantle coal black Miami on ESPN.......$49.99 a month

    A glass of pinot grigio........$2.50

    Watching the face of Miami's black coach and DWFs.......priceless

    Seriously...I don't think Miami even has a white player on the bench.....pathetic.

    Kansas goes down! While they play a few Whites, it's the Morris' that get ALL the credit.

    And, the very-long, true center, Jeff Withey, should really be getting more minutes...

    Poorly conditioned is an understatement. Now we've got sumos invading the basketball world. How can Whites compete with these "superior athletes". The recruiting process is a joke. The SEC is an even bigger joke. If I can steal a page out of Deadlift's script, here's a look at the ebony titan.

    The talking-heads were saying that he only wants to play offense/shoot, but not defense.. and several moments in the game bared that out.

    He's a head-case, and there was that "incident".. in the stands in Hawaii...

    Sidney is a fatty but so is Jared Sullinger. It's just that Sidney has a VERY fat face. lol

    If Glenn Davis is Big Baby then Sidney should be Baby Face or something.

    Actually, Seth Davis called Renardo Sidney "fat" in his discussion of many NBA prospects.
    He compares Jimmer to Mark Price, he likes Kyle Singler though he thinks he will be known as a sixth man,
    he likes Ben Hansbrough but at 6'3 is worried about his height. Seth Davis likes Chandler Parsons ok. He thinks the Plumlee kid should stay in school.

    Perry Jones leaves him wanting more and will not be a franchise guy.
    Sullinger is good but not a whole lot of upside. Kemba Walker is good but he is short. Jacob Pullen is not really a pro
    type player.

    Meanwhile, nbadraft.net has Jimmer going number 10 in the draft.

    UNC continues to defeat very beatable teams' in a weakened ACC, and I fully expect the John Henson "hype-train" to grow and grow, but, in the NBA.. I figure he'll be more inconsistent than, GASP, "Marvin Williams"... another UNC "can't miss."

    At halftime, Ryan Kelly has 3 blocks. He's becoming one of my favorite athletes.

    As a longtime UK fan who first started following them in the glory days of Dan Issell and crew I find it odd to see only one white face on the floor when the Wildcats play but several whites who get playing time for Louisville. Denny Crum certainly didn't recruit or play many whites in his day.

    Pitino still seems to be colorblind IMHO. He still appears to be able to evaluate players based on whether or not they can play basketball, not by what race they are. Calipari, on the other hand...........

    Pitino's "color-blindness" isonly a partially correct assessment, in my opinion. until this season, since Pitino has been at Louisville he has stubbornly attempted to play (completely or nearly so) black lineups. aside from the oft-injured, but very talented David Padgett who played for Louisville under Pitino, off the top of my head i can't recall another White player who got significant minutes until this year ... and the very tail end of last year (when Kuric finally got a chance due to injuries to the "real" talents on the team). not coincidentally, i suspect, Pitino hasn't had nearly the success he had whilst at Kentucky and his often very-White roster there. mayhap Pitino has finally realized why he won all those games back at Kentucky (and Providence, for that matter), and it wasn't due to the absence of White talent. [​IMG]

    meanwhile, Calipari is a disgrace to Kentucky's storied history. Rupp would roll over in his grave if he knew this negrophile was at the helm. the complete dearth of White players AT KENTUCKY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD is a visible testament to not only Calipari's racial biases but also the Caste System as a whole. the plight of current Kentucky guard Jon Hood is an even more personified example of how the Caste System works.

    Coach Cal has always been that way.
    But he doesn't have a Marcus Camby, Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans, John Wall, or a DeMarcus Cousins.
    That's the difference. He needs TOP talent to win. Even then, he still hasn't won a championship.

    About Louisville, guys like Justice, Marra, and maybe Van Treese wouldn't be playing as much as they are if Jared Swopshire wasn't out for the year.

    Truthteller,

    RE: Austin Daye. He wasn't one-and-done. He left after his Sophomore season.

    To me, the MSM has a special fetish for black/half-Caste "small forward-types." All they need to do is chuck some 3-balls, grab some boards and block a few shots, maybe get a few fast-break dunks (that displays their "athleticism").. and they are "basketball Gods"... they don't even need to be "consistent!"

    These types are usually very much deer-boned and thin, and we are told that they have "magical ball-handling abilities." In other words, they are somehow "redefiners" of the game and the "reason" few Whites are allowed to play small forward. Don't forget, they have "every skill in abundance"...

    In my view, the gangly - Matt Barnes - has been another "hype-job" that really lacks consistency. Well, give me Danillo Gallinari and his 3s, rebounds and some blocks.. give me AK-47 and Birdman.. or how 'bout "Red Rocket" Matt Bonner?!

    There was former Iowa State athlete Jamie Vanderbeeken, very tall and long, who could shoot the 3, rebound and block shots. There's Duke's Ryan Kelly. He's more athletic than given credit for. We will be told, though, that they can't "slash" to the basket with the basketball in tow.. Nope, Whites' can't be "Donte Greene's" (what exactly has he done for the horrid Sacramento Kings?).

    Forwards' can certainly make cuts without the ball.. That's why you have a point guard, right..?! Because, do you really want your 6-10 guy "exposing" the ball in traffic? Yes, occasionally, it may work, but many of these "magical ball-handlers" are really turnover-machines. Rarely are they "as skilled" as the MSM would suggest.


    ---Naturally, one can slash-and-pass (create for others) or slash some and put up a shot, but it's quite tedious to get into everything in a single post.. and, of course, there are many Whites' that can slash-and-pop. It's about keeping the defense honest, and it can be a way to get to the foul-line.---

    Jon Leuer had a sweet dunk on Penn State. Broke down his man behind the three-point line, then one dribble and flush. "The athletic Jon Leuer ... Nice," the Big Ten Network announcer said.

    Wiscy has a good freshman guard, Gosser?, who is a poor man's Aaron Craft.

    I think Jon will be a "value" pick relative to where he goes in the draft, has skills that are in demand.

    you guys know that Leuer has long been a favorite of mine. it's nice to finally see him getting some recognition. below is the dunk mentioned by GLS. it is sweet. also, the freshman GLS mentioned is Josh Gasser, whofor a short periodthis year actually led the Badgers in rebounding. as was mentioned earlier in the thread, Gasser recorded the first-ever triple-double in Wisconsin history. he's a terrific player.

    Kansas is destroying Oklahoma State right now on ESPN. Guard Tyshawn Taylor has been suspened, giving more minutes to Morningstar and Tyrel Reed, who both start. If you let Kansas get into the paint, the Morris twins will kill you, if you don't let them into the paint, they have excellent shooters in Morningstar and Reed, with Josh Shelby coming off the bench. If Kansas can avoid the TNB and chemistry issues, I think they can make a deep tourney run this year.

    Gasser just banked in a three-pointer at the buzzer to beat Michigan by one.
