Any information out there about results and play?
Per a tweet by Jeff Goodman, Wilbekin was the "standout."
He also mentioned that several of the scrimmages played by teams (like UF/GT) took almost an hour longer than normal because of all the fouls (due to the rule change).
What rule change, REM?
Basically any contact of any kind is a foul...including one hand now.
I guess guys are going to have to actually start playing basketball again.
You nailed it - hence the reason for the rule change.
These changes, if enforced, will serve as a disadvantage for teams like last years champs, UL, who bullied and mugged opposing players (i'm not blaming them as it was permitted).
I've seen several college bball writers say that they're hearing from coaches there will be a lot more zone defense seen this year.
I do wonder how this will affect Scottie. Being a great perimeter defender almost by definition means you're aggressively exploiting an official's reluctance to blow the whistle and using your hands in ways that are right on the line for being illegal.
Disagree about Scottie. He's a great defender without instigating much contact. Watch him...head up, hands out, hands active, feet active. This rule should hinder other players much more than him.
Sounds like there'll be a lot more interest, recruiting-wise, in those fundamentally sound high school guys like Wilbekin and Humphrey. The ones who defend without fouling.
Finally, no more Butlers making it to the championship game by doing this nonsense. Too many teams were evening the playing field by fouling more than any ref would dare to call.
Goodman also tweeted: "Scottie Wilbekin and Kasey Hill were both very good for Florida against Ga Tech."
Wilbekin and Hill will coexist nicely.
Having a true point guard to run things enables Billy to give Scottie a break from time-to-time, either on the bench or just by playing off the ball for a couple series. We don't need Wilbekin instigating the offense immediately after spending an entire defensive possession chasing Marshall Henderson off screens.
Proper D is all about your feet.
Agree on both counts. The great thing about Wilkbekin is that he has the size, smarts, and skill set to play either the one or the two. At the one, he can get some penetration, he is an unselfish passer, and he knows how to get his points in the paint, plus he has great size and strength for that position collegiately. At the two, he has developed into a very solid catch and shoot threat whose dribble drive skills and passing give us another guy who can run our ball screens.
I expect to see Hill and Wilbekin on the court together for roughly half the game. In addition to his sick athleticism and playmaking ability, the big thing Hill can contribute is his ability to stick that three off the high ball screen. That has never been Wilbekin's game, but it is almost always there in our ball action. With Hill's ability to get into the lane in a hurry, I suspect opposing coaches will always play under that screen to keep him in front of them.
Hill is a true PG and has the Wow factor. Giving SW a break from time to time, I think by the tough games Hill will be asserting himself as the starter at the point. SW if his 3 ball shooting is a little better, playing both at the same time makes sense. Now if we can just get better production out of the bigs, we will be a tough team to handle. Hopefully, we don't get major injuries and Chris makes it in. It is going to be exciting when the SEC schedule starts. Something that is to our benefit this year is the Kentucky scheduling late in the year will hopefully work to our advantage. With the one and dones finally getting it that this is team ball and the Gators meshing all the talent, should be the premier games on the SEC prime time schedule.
How could he possibly know this, media weren't allowed at the game :laugh:
He claims he had a source who was there. He tweeted something about every scrimmage that took place.
My guess is an assistant.
If Hill can defend and press, then I see them playing together a lot. We'll need good passing and penetration by the guards to create open looks. I am excited to see this team play. Hoping to see at least a replay of Friday's game (I live in Toronto).
Right. That is how reporters work.
Not too worried about Wilbekin with the rule change. He has very quick feet. The person who may benefit most is Hill, at least on the offensive end. This should make it easier for him to penetrate and operate in the lane.
