Here’s something from CBSSports.com, some fodder for discussion:
In a preseason ranking of poing guards, the website’s college basketball staff has Isaiah Canaan of Murray State ranked first, and Phil Pressey of Missouri is No. 2. UConn’s Shabazz Napier is at No. 17. Peyton Siva of Louisville is the top Big East point guard at No. 9, with Michael Carter-Williams of Syracuse at No. 13.
Here’s the evaluation on Napier:
“He had great games — and brutal ones. Napier can really shoot the ball from deep, but
needs to learn how to consistently get his teammates easy shots — and also become a
quality leader. Also capable of being a terrific perimeter defender.”
Also, some programming notes: Our first live chat will be Thursday, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
UConn is having an open-to-media practice on Wednesday, so I’ll be tweeting, blogging from Gampel in the late afternoon.
