in terms of NBA players, he could end up being like a Carlos Boozer

(an undersized PF, playing for a major program, probably won't be rated too high on the draft board once he declares for the draft)

and no i'm not saying he will be as successful as Boozer, but with similar skills and stature

I love the Heels, but UNC is way overrated. They lost Wright and Noel and didn't get any big pickups this year and they're ranked #1?!?

First off, I have lived in Oregon for the last 4 1/2 years, so I'm fairly familiar with the Love/Singler rivalry and debate. They had an awesome game in the state playoffs last year (i'm pretty sure it was the championship) in which Singler's team won.

Anyways, Singler was an awesome highschool player, and will be a classic Dukie in the form of Dunleavy. He's got a great feel for the game, is a leader, and can really stroke the J. However, he's a bit on the skinny- and unathletic-side, and I wonder if his game will be able to transfer to the NBA level.

UNC didn't play a bad game here, and I think it should be accepted that Davidson just has a good team and are one of the best coached teams I've seen in awhile. Also on Hansbrough, I think a lot of people are underestimating his drive. He's not going to be a great NBA player, but he hustles and just puts more effort out there than someone like Mark Madsen. With that being said, Love is much better than him. He has a much more refined offensive game, he's a better rebounder, and possibly one of the best passing big men I've seen in a long time (plus he throws outlet passes the likes of which I haven't seen in a long time, unless you count when I watched Wes Unseld on NBA TV a few months ago).

The more I watch Curry the more I fall in love. No homo.

that Curry kid has some serious game...they said he was son of former baller Dell Curry which explained why he seemed so refined out there.

This was an amazing game, period. Really wanted Davidson to knock of the Heels just because they are ranked "higher" then my UCLA Bruins.

Curry is a very solid player no matter what many people might think because he plays in a conference not talked much about. Davidson should be able to pull some sort of upset, if you'd even want to call it that, in the NC2A Tournament. They are just coached greatly and they have themselves a very tough non-conference schedule coming up, mainly these three:

12/01 @ Duke
12/08 @ UCLA
12/21 @ NC State

I think they have a good chance to beat UCLA, NC State. I expect Curry to have a huge game at N.C State.

Btw...Davidson wont "upset" anyone in the tourney. I see them getting a top 7 seed.

MSU will beat UCLA on the 25th.

UCLA it depends on if Collison is back by then and what sort of shape he's in. No lies, the first Davidson game I've seen in a while[saw none last year], but it seems as if Curry is their lone go-to-guy, Collison should be able to slow him down and greatly lower his impact. Either way, Davidson can win all three of those games and will take 1 for sure in my opinion.

I just meant the upset part for the people who really don't know much about Davidson's program or college in general.

I hope Collison is 100% by then. He's actually my fav point guard in college basketball. I wanted him to come out this year so the SUns could draft him. That will be a great match-up.
