    Hoops Analysis looked at the incoming top frosh based on their performance per 40 minutes in the big 3 all star games:

    Here is the analysis of Hill and Walker:

    Best rebounder of incoming prospects I am sure makes all of us hope all the more C.Walker can get eligible. Hill's 3PP is encouraging too.

    Hill's defense despite the steals is shaky. I have watched enough games of his to see that.

    I agree but I look for physical tools and capabilities mainly when watching HS play. I don't see reason to think he can't be a good defensive player after receiving good instruction - as long as his mentality is right also, which has never appeared to be an issue.

    I'd like to see HA do a similar retrospective analysis on previous years' All-Star Games and how performance there correlated to college work, just to see how meaningful this is. The writer doesn't claim that it's particularly important, and I have no problem with a fun exercise, but I am curious.

    Thanks for posting.

    This reminds me of rserina's thread about Parker being somewhat overlooked for as impressive a talent as he appears to be.

    After being astounded by a highlight video of Wiggins', I was actually a little underwhelmed by him in the couple of all-star games I saw. Yes, Wiggins was still very impressive, but he wasn't quite as dominating as I thought he might be after watching the highlight reel.


    Interesting stats/comments on the Gators. Man, I hope Walker makes the grades!!!!
