    Default 2018-2019 One and Done Thread

    thread title could refer to the final post count in this thread or the only reason to watch college basketball these days.

    I think it would be fair to say Duke - namely Zion and Barrett didn't disappoint last night vs #2 Kentucky. 28 pts 7 rebs on 11-13 for Williamson and 33 pts, 6 assists for RJ as they dominated a very good UK team.

    Reddish had a very nice game as well for Duke. Grimes of Kansas and Langford of Indiana also met or exceeded expectations in their openers. And i think those may be the top 5 picks in the 2019 draft.

    Duke's frosh trio today:

    Zion- 11-14 FGs, 27 pts, 16 reb
    Barrett- 9-19 FGs, 23 pts, 6 reb
    Reddish- 9-21 FGs, 7-13 3pt, 25 pts, 7 reb

    These dudes are good.

    Zion thru two games, 22-27 FGs, 28 ppg, 12 rpg.

    if anybody has wondered what it would have looked like seeing LeBron play college ball, i think Zion might be showing us.

    I saw LeBron play as a senior in high school, and he was spectacular, but I'd give a small nod to Zion, knowing he's a year older.

    This guy is probably one and done, or at least done.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    maybe i'm wrong to feel this way, but i don't have a problem with it. the fact he did that and just continued jogging up the court as if it were a routine play - dude may be a psychopath.

    Maybe I'm the one who is wrong but it seems harsh and premature. It could be that permanent dismissal from the team is appropriate and I wouldn't question it if that happened. But barring a pattern of similar previous behavior I have a hard time with banning him from campus. Seems like there should be a deliberation period and then an appeals process during which he can continue going to school.

    In the college world of safe spaces and trigger warnings this would never fly. What if he elbows a kid during Comm 101? Would you really want that threat out there?

    Maui Invitational is next week. Monday thru Wednesday- Duke and Gonzaga, if they both win their 1st round matchups would meet on Tuesday. Duke opens vs SDSU. While Zion dominated Kentucky, that tournament, particularly if they go up against the Zags, will be a much better test for him and Duke overall early in the year. should be fun and interesting. just love college basketball season.

    yeah, he's not the first guy ever to have his eyes at the rim (though i'd consider it very rare), but unless my memory fails me, there has never been anybody at 280+ who could do that. calling him a freak might be an understatement. just hope he can avoid serious injury. and that his jump at least becomes respectable.

    College basketball gets it right with their tourney. They reward teams for playing these types of games in nonconf play. If the team wins, they get credit and if they lose they don’t get dinged very much. In fact, sometimes the mid majors can get credit for playing a powerhouse close. It’s what college football could be like if they expanded to a 16 team playoff.
