    All 3 would be starting for most major Div 1 schools! We have the chance to be scary good...

    Adding fuel to the fire, I'd go so far as to say that a team of Hill, FS, C-Walk, D-Walk and Kurtz would flat out run some SEC teams. That might be the third SEC team to get in the tourney right there.

    Imagine if Carter was healthy and Harris was eligible.

    I think you are getting carried away there. A guy who hasn't played, a walk on who gets a few minutes here and there, a PG who can't shoot, and an offensively limited 2-guard along with DFS. The SEC isn't great, but that lineup would not be making any tournament this year.

    You forgot a very good hustle player and rebounder in Kurtz and a very good defender and smart kid in Walker. Don't leave out anyone, because they have all deserved praise. Even Billy D...you saw that charge right!!!

    Well no kidding wet blanket. It was hyperbole. Enjoy the fun.

    But that team would be competitive in this year's SEC.

    Just tossing out...Finney could go 20-10 each night if he shot as much as a lot of leading scorers did...the dude is pretty darn efficent.

    Kasey seemed to have an amazing connection with CW when they were dominating the AAU circuit. Hope to see some lobs and pick and rolls that bring down the house.

    No doubt. Just look at UK's 5 star studded lineup. A lot of what makes a champ team a winner is cohesion. You need the glue-guys and not just the me-first guys.

    Kasey Hill, Eli Carter, DFS, Damontre Harris, and Chris Walker would be, at worst, the 5th-6th best team in the SEC.

    If you add Carter and Harris absolutely. If you add those two to this group with Walker...I will claim best team in the nation and unbeaten if healthy and not suspended from day one. That group would be just...my goodness.

    And he probably wouldn't be very efficient shooting that much. More importantly, where would he get his shots? You can only take so many pick and pop jumpers. He doesn't have a post game, he doesn't finish terribly well in the paint, and he turns the ball over at a pretty high clip on the perimeter. He is ideal as that stretch four we want, but I highly doubt he could be a high volume scorer.

    You know, he's starting to finish a little better in the paint. He is a bit of a turnover guy. But you wonder with more opportunities and if his scoring was needed more if his game might not flourish. We've seen it happen before.

    I'm a big DFS potential guy.

    I think you guys are going a bit overboard. Yes, Hill and Finney-Smith would start for most, even many top Division I teams. But, in Hill's case, that is largely because he has half a season under his belt.

    Walker is Raw, Raw, Raw. Got to give him a few games just to get used to the speed of the College game. And games are significantly different that practices, even Billy D's practices, which are, usually physically more demanding than games (other than 9 overtime games). As Billy D himself said - don't expect too much from him, he is raw, but he will play.

    Kurtz doesn't play much against SEC competition, simply due to his physical limitations. Since the SEC season started, he has played in 5 games and put in a grand total of 33 minutes, with 20 of those coming in blowouts of Georgia and South Carolina. He is a good player, but physically not adequate against this level of competition.

    I think most of you underestimate D. Walker's contributions. For this team, defense is the name of the game, and he adds depth and height and physical ability (agility) to the wings, plus, he handles the ball well enough to play PG in a pinch. He 's a pretty good shooter, but, much like Hill, in his first season, he is having trouble finding the basket. Billy D has given him something of the Go ahead from 3, because he is a good shooter. In fact, in 100 less minutes this season than Hill, he has put up 6 more 3-pointers, and hit 25% of them compared with Hill's 19%. That's really not that far behind Boynton's percentage every year except when he was a junior. Last year Boynton hit a mere 32% while taking about 100 more 3-pointers than anyone else, as he did every year. He also had the go from Billy D to shoot the 3 any time he had an open shot. Unfortunately, other than as a junior, when he hit an astounding 48%. As a sophomore, he shot 33%, about the same as his sophomore and senior seasons.

    Frequently it takes new players time to find the range. Both Hill and Walker are essentially new players. Think of how Brandon Knight played by tournament time and as the season wore on. Initially, he wasn't hitting those key shots, but as the season wore on, and especially in tournament play, he was deadly. Taureen Green was in some ways similar, being an absolutely outstanding tournament player.
