    The Twins are good guards, and big guards. But not exceptionally quick guards. I'm encouraged that a guy like Kasey Hill might be their Achilles heel, in that he can get past either of them and dish. And Chiozza is reportedly as quick or quicker than Kasey.

    I'm also encouraged in that I believe the Gators will be an even better rebounding team next season than we were this season, so that decided advantage UK had over most every team will be greatly mitigated.

    The scholarships work out fine..there is no need to get "rid" of anyone as you put it. In fact we could add a player if we wanted to.

    True and I wonder if foot speed is something you can improve much? I'm hoping that Ulis and Hawkins can help us in games with quick guards.

    Exactly. I'm as excited as anyone about the Harrison's returning, but people need to consider what is improvable and what isn't in their games. Foot speed isn't, for the most part, and their quickness will be a problem for them next year and eventually in the NBA.

    Lunatic Kentucky fans better not start this undefeated crap...we are going to lose quite a few. I am glad we have a summer basketball trip as that should help a bit.

    If the sun comes up tomorrow as expected, so will the undesired UK lunatic fans. It's a package thing... :)

    Once Calipari and his band of kool aid drinkers move to other pastures, I will begin to look at UK in a better light. Till then I hope all these McD players who drink heartily from the pitcher lose every friggin' game from now till the end of time. Nothing personal :)

    Mo' respect to the guys who don't require all their teamates to be 5 star guys and yet they still can reach the mountaintop. But hey, that's just me...

    Congrats to Cal and Kentucky. His most experienced team yet. Lots of Juniors and Sophmores (finally)!

    They're definitely loaded next year.

    Hopefully they learned their 40-0 lesson though lol.

    I didn't see the Burger Boy game, but I understand that Ulis is greased lightning. He will help guard our quickness, but UK will give up the size advantage at guard when he's in. Lots of things to plan for on both sides.

    Derek Willis or the Hawkins kid? I am still not a believer in the Harrison's but They did play better in the tourney. Aaron hit some big shots.

    Neither one there is room for both. We will need Marquis, and Willis is going to be a nice player in time. If the Harrison's struggle or don't give it their all we have backups..great position to be in. I expect them to have a great sophomore season. I just hope they enjoy the bumps as much as the ride itself.

    But do you think they will stay to ride the pine? Calapari didnt recruit Ulis to sit the bench and Hawkins is very limited. Who is Willis going to play in front of?

    Hawkins could have limited minutes next year, but Willis won't see the floor.

    Either could transfer (not that this is any kind of prediction). Any player can transfer. It happens.

    Why wouldn't they? Either one are big names. They each could contribute if they wait their turn...which way back in the day was NORMAL...I think both could play a bit next year, but then again it's up to them and how bad they want it.

    This is terrible news. They're going to LOADED next year. What's that, 9 five star players? Lol Now I see how UK feels in football. We have some studs as well though. I think we'll split the series and take it to the sec championship game for a rematch. After that, who knows.

    GO GATORS!
