NBA Scout Hammers Louisville Players, Says Harrison Twins Should Stay in College

Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog.com spoke to a veteran NBA scout after today's game. The scout made some interesting comments, including his thoughts that the Harrison twins should stay in college.

Here are some excerpts:

On Andrew and Aaron Harrison, who combined for 28 points, 8 rebounds and 7 turnovers and came on strong down the stretch while Randle sat on the bench: “Both of them should stay. To me, I think both have regressed from where they were coming in with all the hype they had. Aaron’s a better shooter. They both struggle to guard perimeter quickness. They both are not consistent shot-makers. Andrew’s just OK. He’s never going to be able to break any NBA  point guard down and at 6-5 you’re not going to be able to post him. I just think they should both stay in school. There’s nothing that either one of them brings that makes you say, ‘Wow, this guy is my point guard or my two guard of the future.’”

The scout said the body language thing — which many say is improving — wasn’t an issue for him.
“I never really worried about that. They’ve been the better players on their teams for a number of years. There’s a lot of hype surrounding them. I’ve never heard or seen them to be bad kids at all,” the scout said. “I don’t even factor that into the equation.”

On James Young, who went for 18 and 10 on 5-for-17 shooting: ”James Young helped himself. The guy’s going to have to get stronger, but he’s a got a knack for scoring. He’s got a beautiful stroke. He can shoot the 3-ball. He’s got a bright future I think.”

On Montrezl Harrell, who managed just 6 points and 4 rebounds as Louisville’s frontcourt players came up empty: “What did he do? What did he do? He’s a zero. He didn’t even get off the bus.”

On Chane Behanan, who went scoreless with 7 rebounds: “Did he come to the gym, did he show up?”

Louisville (11-2) started the second half on fire to tie the game and eventually take the lead 52-51. The Wildcats finally took the lead 55-53 on a James Young jumper with 8:27 to play. From there, Kentucky extended the lead to as many as 10 points and never looked back on the way to victory.

75 Media Members (Including Me) Make Predictions on Kentucky vs. Louisville

John Clay of the Herald-Leader surveyed 75 or so media members, including myself, today to get their prediction on Saturday's Louisville vs. Kentucky game.

Here are my thoughts:

Anthony Wireman (All KY Hoops) says Kentucky 73, Louisville 72. This could go either way but I’m picking UK based on home court advantage, post play and early-season scheduling.

Some other notables:

Dick Vitale (ESPN) says Kentucky 74, Louisville 70. Cats will dig in says VBDI & bring joy to BBN.

Eric Prisbell (USA Today) says Louisville 83, Kentucky 82. I still believe UK will be the better team come march, but U of L, flying under the radar all season, is the more complete team today.

Dana O’Neil (ESPN) says Louisville 78, Kentucky 71. The Cards’ overall experience outweighs Kentucky’s inside advantage in a game where jitters will matter.

Gary Parrish (CBS Sports) says Kentucky 81, Louisville 80. I’d likely take Louisville right now on a neutral court. But I think UK is good enough to win this game inside Rupp Arena.

Andy Katz (ESPN) says Kentucky 72, Louisville 70. The difference will be Julius Randle, the one area of the floor where the Wildcats have a decided advantage.

Jeff Goodman (ESPN) says Kentucky 71, Louisville 69. It’s a complete toss-up, but I’m going with the home team here. Cards still not in sync yet.

Pat Forde (Yahoo) says Louisville 74, Kentucky 72. Russ Smith, overshadowed by freshmen this season, will remind everyone why he’s an All-American in a gym where he always shines.

Mike Decourcy (Sporting News) says Louisville 72, Kentucky 69. Last year’s Wildcats at least showed a level of comfort at home. This team hasn’t yet embraced any court as a place to comfortably do business.

John Clay (Lexington Herald-Leader) says Kentucky 94, Louisville 92. The hope is that this will be the most exciting UK-U of L game ever. Cats get the win because Cats need the win.

Check Out the Complete List

All the Early Money is Being Bet on Louisville to Win

The Vegas line for Kentucky and Louisville opened as a pick 'em but has already shifted to the Cards being favored by 3 points.

That means all the early money is being bet on Louisville to win.

Kelly also added a career-high 12 rebounds to net his first double-double of the season. It was the most points by a Morehead State player since Feb. 15, 2003 and his eight made 3-pointers was just one off the MSU single-game record. Overall it was one of just five 40-plus point efforts by an OVC player over the last 10 years (dating back through the 2004-05 season). Kelly had entered the game averaging just 5.5 points/game and had scored just 36 points over his previous seven contests.

Against SIU he entered the game and scored nine points in just over two minutes of play to spark the Racers to a victory.
