    Think about Scottie Wilbekin coming on from Queen of Peace, a private school in G'ville, as a 17 yr old freshman. I always envisioned him as MAYBE developing into a complementary player, ala Walter Hodges. Never thought he could develop his shot and ability to score off the dribble to the level he has; not to mention his lock down defense (which he's exhibited almost from day one).

    Definitely. Such a nice surprise.

    (He came from the rock though, no?)

    Watching Scottie tonite and versus Kansas, it is clear that he is an elite point guard: Defense is spectacular, ball handling is solid and his shot is very good. '

    Makes me think of a poster (or 2) who stated that Hill was better than Wilbekin….now. That comment looks pretty silly now. This is not a ding on Hill as he is a frosh and the comment is more driven by just how good Scottie is playing. Sure Hill will build his confidence as the season progresses.

    Kasey is really playing in his fourth or fifth game. Still has a lot to learn, but has incredible talent.

    New rules have taken away that defensive "ability."

    Just to be clear, I hope Kasey is a better point guard than Scottie someday. He seems to have the physical tools to do just that. The comment was directed at posters who stated that Kasey was better than Scottie at the beginning of this season.

    But, dang, Scottie sure needs to hit the front end of that 1 and 1…..

    Greenberg is a guy I like to listen to a lot. SW is a great defender, but not necessarily tonight.

    Wilbekin can't play defense like Aaron Craft. As evidenced by tonight, Scottie isn't allowed to handcheck like the refs still let Craft do in spite of the new rules.

    I agreed with the last foul on Scottie. The one before that was crap. They had done as bad or worse all night.

    One thing I do like about Kasey is him taking the ball downcourt and making a beeline to the rim. He's just so quick!

    Scottie's been great these past few games, and really, I don't think those shoulda been fouls.

    he played a really good game overall, but he had 2 fouls on an 86% FT shooter 20 feet from the basket, missed the front end of a one and one and then with 4 fouls had to let his guy go by on the last possession, all of that in the last 40 seconds.
    He should be buying DFS dinner when they get home!

    Hill still hasn't mastered some of the nuances of playing at this level, and that will come with time, but he's like a scat back who can break the game wide open with his speed and dribbling ability. He's a great change of pace from Wilbikin.

    To be fair, I thought those two hand check calls were bullshit. Really tough to stay in front of a guy with elite quickness like Jackson when you're handcuffed with four fouls and the refs are calling things extremely tightly.

    Wilbekin has come a long way. His floater has been pretty consistent thus far (outside of the FSU game) and he's a very good jump shooter. Solid decision-making ability as well. There were a few times where he had an open jumper early in the shot clock towards the end of the game but decided to run some clock.

    But, damn, he has to hit those free throws. He was a pretty good FT shooter last season so it's probably just a slump, but the missed front-end nearly cost us the game.
