Gary's comments on Kentucky

Gary Williams recently said on the radio that he believes that this year's Kentucky team could beat the Wizards, if the Wizards were coming off back-to-back games and the game was being played in Rupp.

My questions to spark up a debate, are

  1. Do you think it is possible for Kentucky to beat the Wizards, or any NBA team, under such circumstances?
  2. If you had to make a roster of eight players that played college basketball this season and would compete against an NBA team like the Wizards, Bobcats, Raptors, etc., which starting five and three bench players that played college basketball this year would give you the best chance to win?

My starting five:

PG: Tony Wroten- NBA size at the PG position, athletic, can score, etc.

SG: Bradley Beal- Possibly the best shooter in college basketball, not great size for an NBA SG though.

SF: Harrison Barnes- Didn't have a great tourney/ year, but at 6'8, would fare well against most NBA SFs, can attack the rim, solid jumper.

PF: Royce White- a little undersized at 6'8, but very athletic, can guard multiple positions, decent stroke.

C- Anthony Davis- no explanation necessary.

Bench:

Draymond Green- no real position, but can do everything, would pose matchup problems, could put him at the four with Davis at the 5 protecting the rim.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist- could play the two with Barnes at the three, all the intangibles you could want in a player.

John Henson- very skinny, but his shot blocking ability would be very needed when Davis is out and Royce White or Draymond is playing the four spot.
