No surprise. - BB
Improved defending, too? He's quickly rounding out his game. Don't like the Kansas talk, though. - BB
Jabari Brown (Oakland, Calif./Oakland) shot well from both behind the arc and from mid-range. He's not long, but is strong and uses his strength to create space against defenders. Brown is also a frustrating defender for opponents who can't match up with his size and strength. He also showed the ability to rebound from his guard position, which helped create multiple fast break opportunities for his Drew Gooden Soldiers team. Brown is currently being recruited by a host of Pac-10 teams, including Cal, Stanford and UCLA. Kansas is also on Brown's list and he will also be attending KU's Elite Camp.
I would make three. Although, the two do differ on which conference will take home the crown. - BB
Some nice quotes in here from Chuck. Will definitely be rooting for the guy come next season.
"My dad was the harder you work the luckier you get," Driesell said. "From Coach Williams, to really run good offense, to really make sure the guys execute offensively. Don't let them get away with anything. Make sure that they run each play exactly as it should be done. From Coach Escherick was organization, to have a way to do things and stick with that plan. He never really rushed a decision. A lot of times I would be like, 'Let's make a decision now.' And he would say, 'No, let's make sure we have all the facts. You dont always have to make a decision right away. Let's make the right decision, rather than a rushed decision."
Nice overview from the Official UMD Lax blog. ND will be out for revenge after Maryland upset them in last year's opening round.
Basically, Baltimore ballers Nick Faust and Greg Lewis are blowing up.
Always nice to LOL at NC State.
