On the night the National Championship was played, Congrats too Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinal, it seems fair I put in some input on the past season and the future..

  1. Just to make sure everyone is aware; Coach K is the BEST coach in college basketball, period.
  2. Peyton Siva is entirely overrated as a college Point Guard, he had some heart yes, but as a Point Guard; in his Sophomore – Senior years he avg. 5.5 assists per game and 3 turnovers per game. Doesn’t even make it up with his scoring, less than 10 a game.
  3. Trey Burke reminds me of Allen Iverson; not as good of a scorer as AI was but a better passer than AI.
  4. Erick Green of Virgina Tech was the best scorer in the NCAA in ’12-’13
  5. Kelly Olynyk is the most NBA ready big man in the NCAA’s, his post game is serious.
  6. I think Shane Larkin is strictly a college star and it won’t translate to the pros.
  7. Out of all the freshman in the country this season, I think UNLV’s Anthony Bennett has the potential to be a star at the next level. One issue he has is he becomes a ghost in games every so often.
  8. Most overrated player in ’12-’13 – I think it was a tie between UNC’s James Michael McAdoo & Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams
  9. Most Underrated player in ’12-’13 – I think it was a tie between Temple’s Khalif Wyatt & Notre Dame’s Jack Cooley
  10. I think USC’s hire of Andy Enfield is way to premature, yeah he did a nice job and his FGCU won 2 tourney games but that’s the only thing he’s been a part of.
  11. DJ Stephens, the 6’5 forward out of Memphis is the most athletic college basketball player I’ve ever seen play.
  12. In my opinion I think Mitch McGeary could turn out to be the best NBA player our of the players we saw during the National Championship tonight; could turn out and have a very similar career to Golden State’s David Lee.
  13. Nerlens Noel, who will more than likely be pick number 1, has a horrible offensive game.
  14. NC State was most underachieving team during the regular season; New Mexico was the most underachieving during the NCAA Tourney.
  15. Georgetown & Gonzaga were tied for the most overachieving teams in the Nation; Marquette was the most overachieving in the Tourney.
  16. Grambling State was the worst team in NCAA history; 0-28.
  17. Scott Wood, Seth Curry & Nik Stauskas are the 3 best shooters in college basketball.
  18. Roy Williams is a much better recruiter than he is a coach as is John Calipari.
  19. Brad Stevens is the future face of college basketball head coaching.
  20. Matthew Dellavedova will succeed in the NBA, even if he’s not drafted he will make his way onto a team because of his great work ethic.

That’s it for the College basketball opinions for this evening. Leave comments and let me know what you think!
