Hachimura is #4 I think. A great video. You might want to watch it. This video gets me fired up for November. He's definitely someone to watch.

Go Zags!!!

I love this start to Rui's segment :)


Hachimura has the speed and explosiveness of everyone on this list, but combines those with bulk. At 6-8, 225 pounds, Hachimura is a wrecking ball.

And ya know he's gonna inspire his teammates to kick butt as well. With the experience of the bunch, Few should have a well oiled machine early on in the season. All this talent is going to take some awesome coaching to organize ...... glad we have an awesome coaching staff :)

One of the best message board lines I've ever heard was late in the game ... from an Ohio State message board ..... it went something like this ..... "Does anyone know if LeBron made a trip to Japan 20 years ago?"

What a big time game and what a big time player.....I think that is also the game that Norvell hit the dagger 3 ???...….and in the presser Few said something like....." Well....when he got the ball, I knew he was going to shoot it and..... that it would probably go in...." .

This year's team is going to be thrilling to watch ….another journey into March and maybe..... with some luck.... beyond.

Very interesting indeed: Tillie #34; Norvell #13; Rui #8.

If same site recaps 50 best players at end of season might Clarke play his way on? Maybe I’m drinking too much Kool Aid but all reports suggest he is worthy of top 50 consideration too.

Rui can pretty much destroy everyone at the college level if he puts his mind to it. Nobody I have seen to this point has a good answer for his size and mobility. He is NBA material as he is now... his stock only has one direction to go and that is up.

I know that clip is a Rui highlight reel, but Perkins looks pretty good in it. Quite a few of Rui's buckets are off of nice passes from Perks.

I wish the highlight had included at least one of his drives for the bucket that start from mid-court. I realize he still isn't sure what to do when he runs into traffic (some of the time) , or how to finish against elite tall defenders, but still more and more he resembles a speeding train gliding by defenders. Even proportionately speaking, he has the strength, speed and coordination of great athletes a foot shorter than him. If other players did not reveal his size on the TV screen, it could be believed if the narrator said he was 6 feet tall. Very few big men have this type of compactness and coordination that could be called 'cat-like.'

Still not bothered at all about that throw down with 4.1 left. It was great!

Can't wait to see Rui play as an upperclassman. In Japan, "deference to elders" is important and now he's one of the most experienced Zags, so it's his time to shine.

Duke with #1, #2, and #4; all freshman.

For this upcoming year, would you rather have Duke's 3 on the list or ours?

Another interesting piece. GU is #9 program in the last decade, according to this:

Ditto.

I hope Perkins develops a floater, could become a dominant scorer.

A great shot to work on while recovering slowly

Those 3 have bone fide NBA talent. BUT experience with lesser talent usually wins. Duke's 3 are spectacular but not as a team that works together in a big step up in level of play.
Maybe we'll know more in Maui if we collide with Duke. Apart from the history with Duke (like 0-5 or something) this year we can win. Early in the season with an experienced group of hardcore veterans gets my money every time.
