    Kid is playing so well and under control. He has been sick getting to the rim off that dribble weave and he fills the lane very well in transition. His creating for himself with both hands and has hit little jump stop with regularity. His game won't work against teams with great rim protectors, but he can get his points against most.

    I think it will depend on which side of the basket he attacks. If they have two strong post presence players then it will be hard for anyone to go to the basket. With one they will need to work the ball around for him to find the right lane. Should be interesting to watch what happens with the big guys the Noles put on the floor. I would like to see him get them in foul trouble early on.

    Not sure how you came up with 17.6. He's averaging 19.2 ppg through six games.

    At times in the past, Prather has contributed a lot to the team, and so far this year, as a senior, this has been true. With Wilbekin out, he was also give the toughest defensive assignments. With both of them in the lineup, this team is going to be more difficult to score points against.

    He's already scored more this year than he did his first 2 years combined

    Additionally, he is passing the ball really well. His entire game looks nice. And the guy has SERIOUS hops. He is a dunking machine. I am looking forward to the first time he times an offensive rebound in the O'Dome and jams it on someone's head.

    I love that Casey, Scottie, DFS, Walker, Frazier II & Hill are all competently taking the ball to the basket this year. Billy has them coached to take advantage of the new foul interpretation. Oh yeah, and they're all very good at it! Love this team….add in Harris & Walker and it appears to be a very complete team.

    Lets put it this way. Randle is playing so well that if we had landed him I would be booking my trip to the Final Four games. Guy is an absolute beast on the boards.

    LOVE seeing these 4 year guys grow in to great basketball players, given the success of a guy like Parsons in the NBA I wonder if Casey, who nobody would have projected to the NBA two years ago, makes it past the first round. If he keeps scoring like this come SEC play he won't.

    Casey probably won't be able to get to the rim at will as easily against some of the better teams later down the road, but just his aggressiveness in attacking the basket this year will open up a lot of things for our offense.

    He may not be finishing at the rim against tall, athletic teams, but he'll get there and draw fouls - which is exactly what we'll need him to do. His improved FT% will also go a long ways for the team.

    Parsons was a 2nd round pick and a much more complete player and taller than Casey. I don't see any way Casey goes 1st round. He hasn't shown an ability to hit the college 3 consistently.

    I agree. I'm not sure he can even make a roster next year. This is no knock on CP, but a testament to how deep the NBA is w/ talent (and short on roster spots). Just take a look at the talent in the D League; it's impressive.

    I saw great improvements by Casey starting in the tourney last year and he has been lights out this year. I will say that lesser competition and also us missing players has contributed to it. I am still not sure I am 100% confident with the ball in his hands if the game were on the line, but I expect him to get more comfortable with the ball as the season goes on. He is as athletic a player as there is in the country.
