A few notes:
I watched the Zags in the first half last night play the Peperdine Waves. That Morrison kid had scored 2 points up until the 3 minute mark in the first half. And I was thinking what is all his hype about. no sooner did I think that and he rattled off like 10 points. That kid is a shooter. He reminds me of Bird. He is tall like Bird, he is a great shot like Bird (I haven't watched him play enough to say as good as Bird), he has an uncanny basketball sense like Bird.
I looked at the Box Score and he finished with 26 points. He had an off game last night, he was below is avg in FT and FG percentages.
(By the way SIA, who is standing next to the Krzyzweskiville sign in your sig?)
A few thoughts...
It'll be interesting to see what they do with national player of the year. Redick and Morrison are definately both deserving of it, but Redick has played better competition than Morrison has and has had just as good or better numbers. I'd like to see Redick come away with the Wooden Award and Nat'l Player of the year, but I wouldn't cry if they split.
Look for Michigan State to come on strong. I don't expect them to make the Final Four, but they have the potential of pulling off some upsets in the first few rounds.
George Washington is 22-1 and ranked #6, but they've played some pretty poor competition this season. They're relatively young too, so I think they'll end up being bumped pretty early.
Pittsburgh is in the top 10 depending on which poll you look at, but in my opinion they are being overrated AGAIN. They always seem to fail to live up to expectations come tourney time.
