November 19th Pick and Rolls
by: Matt Schaefer
November 19, 2007
The competition hasnít been good or even mediocre but Michael Beasley has been putting up video game numbers, averaging 30 points and 20 rebounds on 75 percent shooting. It will be interesting to see how Beasley does against George Mason Thursday 9pm on espn2.

SI.comís Seth Davis has an interesting article on this yearís freshman class. However, stating that this stellar class isnít a by-product of the new age minimum NBA draft rule, I feel is incorrect. No matter how good the class is, and it is great, the majority of probable first round picks declare for the draft which would have deprived college basketball fans of at least the five of the best players of the 07 class.

Jim Calhoun feels that Chris Douglas-Roberts should be on everybodyís All American team after his career high 33 points Saturday night. He shot 14-24 and reminded me of Dwayne Wade in how he took over down the stretch with a variety of mid range shots and layups.

Tubby Smith was able to get top 2008 recruit Ralph Sampson III to leave the Atlanta area for Minnesota despite his fatherís stellar career at Virginia.

Duke looks to continue their perfection at the Maui Invitational. Another meeting with Marquette and its trio of guards would be great to watch.

CSTVís Van Coleman goes over the top unsigned talent of the 2008 class. Consensus top five player Tyreke Evans doesnít seem likely to pick a school until the spring.

The Lexington Herald-Leader goes over how and why Billy Gillispie's contract remains unsigned and goes over his contract incentives. The loss to Gardner-Webb probably wont accelerate the process.

Interesting article on how Donte Green calls fellow Baltimore native Carmelo Anthony his big brother. One Green trend to be concerned about, Green has taken 19 three pointers and only nine free throws through three games.

Billy Donovan got his 300th win and Florida didnít allow any second chance points to Rutgers. Marreese Speights is doing a good job of the impossible task of trying to replace Al Horford.

Pitt literally has a player from their backyard making an immediate impact in their quest to replace Aaron Gray and Levan Kendall.

Last yearís SEC freshman of the year, Patrick Beverly talks about the U-19 World Championship team and his outlook for the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Brandon Rush made his return from an acl tear that occurred only six months ago. For the time being he is only allowed to play ten minutes a game.

Pro scouts are at Baylor practices for the first time in five years and the Bears are expecting a NCAA tournament berth.

USC received its first triple double since the 1970s as OJ Mayo got some help in the backcourt from Daniel Hackett returned from injury.
