Florida State's meltdown

Well, Florida State just imploded in the final eight seconds of the half here. Basket. Steal. Basket. Tech on Leonard Hamilton, who blew his top before quickly deciding to retreat to the locker room to avoid more trouble. FSU had been hanging around, but it's tough to see them doing much in the second half after the disaster in the final seconds of the first half. FSU's half-court offense has left a lot to be desired.

FSU has more turnovers than made field goals. Dick Vitale summed the half up in two words: "Sloppy game."

Kilgore: "Who would have ever thought such a well coached team would fall apart like that?"

Svrluga made a good point: If there were no upsets yesterday, this game may have seemed like the worst game today in Tampa. Because of the upsets, it could be the best game of the day, which isn't saying much.

The Great Al Thornton has not had his best half, but it was fun to watch him match up with Carolina freshman Brandon Wright. If Wright enters the draft, both are likely lottery selections.

Rank your top 5 draft picks right now for 2007:

1) Oden
2) Durant
3) Wright
4) Thornton
5) Julian Wright

In other news, Kilgore is still bitter about his Georgia Tech pick. My wife picked Maryland to win this thing, so she's down. Patrick Stevens accepted our invitation for dinner, remains to be seen if the elusive Stevens shows.

Kilgore should be happy as heck his beloved Hokies don't have to play GT; but rather they get a tired, double-OT-late-game-winner Wake Forest. If the Hokies don't roll by 20+, it'll be laughable. But of course Kilgore will write a glowing review of the Hokies, win or lose, and then continue crying about his pick.

Tucker, the Big Ten Player of the Year doesn't make your list?!?

College performance does always equal a high NBA draft pick.

Tucker is an undersized pf in a system that is designed for him to score in.

Thornton #4? Has Prisbell watched any college basketball this year outside of the ACC?

Posted by: Chris | March 9, 2007 2:43 PM | Report abuse

Actually that is Prisbell's job, to cover MD/the ACC, so most likely.
