Have to quietly mention that Mobley's profile isn't really looking that impressive at this stage. Only thing he's doing at an above-average level is shot blocking.

Huge game for Mobley today, making me eat my words. Ayayi on course for a perfect triple double (no missed field goals, no turnovers) which has to be a pretty rare feat.

Oregon's Chris Duarte may be a guy to keep an eye on as an instant-impact roleplayer type. Good positional size for a SG at 6'6", leading the P12 in 3's and steals, and doesn't turn the ball over.

I know he ended up missing a couple of shots toward the end, but speaking of rare, that was the first triple-double in the history of Gonzaga basketball

Cade with a pretty big 1st half against Kansas. Second half underway

Michigan is obliterating Wisconsin. Wow.

Just saw some of Diabate’s film hit. Sheesh. If Dickinson stays, I’m not even sure teams will score 50 points a game against that front line.

Been really impressive to see what Howard has done there. And they are about to get a ridiculous injection of talent next year.

Wagner was really good again tonight. Curious to see if he gets a little momentum here in NBA circles.

I have a feeling people will buy into Wagner fairly quickly since his brother ended up being a quality pro

Shades of the WVU game for Cade and Oklahoma State. Let's see if they can finish the job this time.

EDIT: They get the win, but still a pretty weak showing by Cade down the stretch with no points or assists in the last 10 minutes. He again relied heavily on his jumper and his floater, and when he's hitting those shots he's very good, but when he's not there's no plan B and he just fades into the background.

One semi weird thing happening at the top of this draft is there aren't really any outlier or plus scorers. Bouknight is really the only one but he's more considered a back end of the lottery guy.

I like Suggs / Mobley / Cade......but it is starting to feel like a year where there will be a lot of weird draft results. Where I think the best players will be sprinkled all over. This is still a very good draft.......but even Suggs is kind of landing in this really weird area for a PG......where he's not really an elite AST generator and he's also a somewhat average scorer on a possession basis. I still like him a lot but he doesn't quite look like the runaway top player anymore. Will be interested to see how that evolves.

@Nathan S my stuff sees JJJ as kind of the Thybulle like guy of this class. Where he does kind of everything but score.....but does those non scoring things so well, he seems valuable. I really know nothing about him though, other than having just pulled his possession data down. :chuckle:

From a pure scoring standpoint, my draft rater likes Cameron Thomas and Moses Moody quite a lot. It also sees Greg Brown as a high-ceiling scorer, though his remarkably bad 1:28 assist:TO ratio massacres his offensive projection overall.
