Trae Young of Oklahoma University making his mark towards the NBA 2018 Draft

Trae Young just lift his team to win over arguably the best coached team and the most defensive oriented team in college basketball, the better part about it is its in the opponents home court.

Saturday Dec 16, 2017 before the game Oklahoma Sooners (7-1) vs #3 Wichita State Shockers (7-1) , Young was in a very hostile environment but right on the get go he ended the first half with 21 points and 5 assist. 

This is the highlight of this game;

and a little bonus a good team as well against Oregon Young scored 43 points on them

Young is also leading the nation is scoring at 28.8ppg and 3rd in assists 8.8, he also played good d on Landry Shamet the Senior PG for Wichita state who is a tough nut to crack but Young made it look as if he is the Senior held Shamet to 2 points.

You heard it here first am calling it top 5 pick in 2018 NBA Draft

La Salle Destroyed Ateneo, 97 – 81; Sweeps 1st Round of Elimination

Even without Coach Aldin Ayo and College Superstar Jeron Teng, La Salle are simply too much for Ateneo.

Ateneo was able to lead by as much as 6 points in the second quarter but since then it was all La Salle as they unleashed a 21 – 3 run and never looked back.

Ben Mbala dominates the game by finishing 28 points, 13 rebounds and 5 steals. La Salle also got a lift from Andrei Caracut, Abu Tratter, Thomas Torres, Kib Montalbo ang Ricci Rivero who combined for 48 points.

Defense basically makes it happen for La Salle as they forced Ateneo to 30 turnovers. They also dominates the inside game and posted a 52 inside points and 49 total rebounds

Ateneo was led by John Wong and Matt Nieto with 15 and 14 markers respectively.

La Salle sweeps the first round but the team says that they are still a working in and they are just around 75% to 80%.

The scores:
DLSU (97) — Mbala 28, Caracut 14, Tratter 10, Torres 8, Montalbo 8, R. Rivero 8, Melecio 5, Perkins 5, Dyke 4, Baltazar 2, Go 2, Paraiso 2, P. Rivero 1, Sargent 0.
Ateneo (81) — Wong 15, Ma. Nieto 13, Asistio 11, Ravena 11, Mendoza 9, Ikeh 7, Porter 6, Go 5, Babilonia 2, Mi. Nieto 2, Tolentino 0, Verano 0.
Quarterscores: 20-20, 53-36, 80-58, 97-81.

UNC VS VILLANOVA for the Championship game Tomorrow! Who you got?

It’s 1 VS 2, Who ever wins will take it all out of 351 teams its down to 2 Tomorrow Night April 5, 2016 at exactly 9:19 am. manila time. I think BTV will air this for those who have sky cable but if you want to stream it feel free to go here be careful of the links though and disregard the pop ups. 

These two teams are very much alike except they have contrasting advantage over opponents UNC often rely on their front court of Jackson, Johnson and Meeks.Nova though use their back court of Hart, Arch and Jenkins, both of the other starting 5 members aren’t a joke either. 

Nova’s Starting 5


The determining factor for this game is Bench and i favor UNC’s over Nova. UNC is about 10 deep but Nova is at most 8 deep. Coaching is a toss up but you have to give the edge to the guy who has won it twice already so i would go over his experience on the other hand Jay Wright isn’t a joke either but again Williams has won it twice against equally good or maybe even better than Wright. 

This would be fun game because as I stated both are complete teams just like last year but i think it would come down to the bigs because with the way how college game works the bigs are a big factor that is also the same reason why Nova beat Oklahoma Sooners that way because they were able to contain Hield and the bigs were a non factor pretty much.

Here’s the prediction of analysts from NCAA March Madness:

Here are the highlights of the games

Oh Do i need to remind you who Jaylen Brown is? 23 Pts against Washington!

This dunk may look easy based on the picture but watch the replay here. He was like a bigger version of Jimmy Butler. 

The Cal Bears are clicking just in the nick of time before March Madness start Jaylen Brown is starting to grow in our eyes, he is becoming the leader that they want him to be. The fact that Brown has his fellow freshman phenom in Ivan Rabb, he doesn’t take a step behind him and often times he would lead them to win. Jaylen Brown Scored 23 points to steal a win on the road and keep their March Madness hopes alive. 

Cal bears is undefeated at home with a win over #12 seed Arizona and an absolute dominance over USC, its all thanks to Brown who has average 15 ppg and has scored 20 or more on crucial games that gave them a chance to finish as the #4 seed come championship week. 

Here is the highlight of this monstrous game by Jaylen Brown

Introducing: Deyonta Davis Biggest Surprise this season and a possible lottery pick! from MSU!

Deyonta Davis

Davis was a 4 star recruit coming out of high-school this dude was in the shadow of Skal Labissiere. Michigan State Spartan Head coach had other plans and he was able to turn this soft spoken young player into a premiere Stud! that is looking to surprise the NBA Community next season if he decides to declare for the draft. Here is an interview of Coach Tom Izzo from MSU;

Top 5 Pick Maybe? 

Right now Davis is still a project but he has the makings of a Marcus Camby kind of guy, which isnt a bad thing. 

Davis Stats:

MPG . 18.7
PPG: 7.6
RBG: 5.7
BPG: 2.0

Stats not that glaring because of how he is being utilize by Coach Izzo but this guy has good fundamentals already and if he doesn’t go this year’s draft he would be a guaranteed top 10 pick next year.

Here is a couple of highlights offense and defense:

Introducing: Kris Dunn Lottery pick for 2016 NBA DRAFT!

Kris Dunn

Dunn tore his labrum in June 2012 and underwent shoulder surgery immediately after. He made his freshman debut in late December.[3]On December 11, 2013, it was announced Dunn would undergo shoulder surgery and miss the rest of his sophomore season.[4]In the following 2014-2015 season, Dunn returned from injury to earn the Big East Player of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year awards. Choosing to return for the 2015-2016 season with the intention of graduating, Dunn garnered many preseason accolades, including preseason POY.
Dunn was named Big East Player of the Week on January 4, 2016 after scoring 26 points in a win against St. John’s and a 20 point outing in a victory over ninth-ranked Butler.[5]On February 1, 2016, he was named one of 10 finalists for the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award.[6]

He has gotten better and proved to be a better player after the surgery. Here are the stats for Dunn this senior year from Providence Friars. 

Height: 6’4 
Wingspan: 6’9
Standing Reach 8’6


17 PPG
5.9 RBG for a point guard
6.7 APG
3.2 SPG – 2nd in the nation in steals

To me he is a smaller version of Dwade, his tenacity of defense and the ability to absorb contact and make the shot reminds me of Dwade. Which is not bad there are rumors that my wolves assuming the wolves keep the 5th pick would take Dunn, I don’t have a problem with that if they would trade rubio or lavine. I don’t want the wolves to have 3 PG’s again like what they did with rubio, flynn and some mash potatoes. 

Dunn will be a great fit for Milwaukee because MCW looks a bit lost out there. Dunn would thrive playing under Jason Kidd. 

Here is a good highlight of Kris Dunn’s style of play:

Introducing: Buddy Hield Lottery pick from Oklahoma!

Buddy Hield 

Buddy Hield is in the same mold as a Brandoy Roy kinda guy because he happens to be a senior as well and he is the main reason why Oklahoma Sooners are #1 or #2. Hield is a dynamic scorer who strokes it beyond the arc like no one is guarding him and can also razzle dazzle inside to get the 2 points. He is also good in absorbing contact and still getting the shot. Just check out this review courtesy of The Rewind from youtube

The Weakness of Hield is his defense something that may worry other teams but J.J Redick and Kyle Korver learned over how to play decent defense over the years so I wont be surprised if he pans out the same. 

Hield’s Measurements:

Height: 6’4.5  
Wing Span: 6’8 1/2

#2 Scorer in all of college with 25.6 PPG
5.5 Rebounds per game
1.4 Steals per game 

and he is shooting 51% From 3 point distance. WHAT 51% from 3’s he shot 182 and made 93. This guy has improved his shooting stroke from 3 from 35.9 last year. The question is how would he fare against premium NBA defenders? We will only find that out but if guys like Redick and Korver able to play and be good I wont be surprised if he can be better. I see Hield as an aggressive version of Bradley Beal from Wizards but less on defense. I won’t be surprised if Bucks or New Orleans Pelicans would jump at getting him regardless of the # pick.

Here is the best scoring game by Hield he did this against Kansas Jay hawks. Although they lost the game he was amazing 46 points with 8 3’s and also 3 OT’s.

March Madness is just around the corner if Hield continues to drive his team to at least elite 8, he would certainly climb up the ranks as I have no doubt in mind he would come in handy for any of the teams that would pick him.

UNC TARHEELS back at #1 after a few years of setbacks

Left to right first row – #5 Marcus Paige (SR) Coach- Roy Williams #13 Kanler Coker (JR)
At the back #42 Joel James (SR), Brice Johnson (SR)

Yes these four veterans of college basketball worked they way to where they are now, after a few years of setbacks the Tar Heels are back to #1. They are a surprise this season despite having only 1 5 star commit in the last 2 years who happens to be #44 Justin Jackson the nation’s #8th player from class of 2014. That starting 5 is like a thing of beauty whenever they need to step it up on both ends. 

UNC seems like they are headed to the final four again this year, all we have to do is wait and see despite losing to Louisville on Feb 1, 2016. I still like their chances because of the veteran squad that they have. 

Here is a replay of their best win of the season vs Rival Maryland 12 1, 2015

That time UNC was only ranked #9.

Introducing: Brandon Ingram Top 3 pick in 2016 NBA Draft. KD Jr?

Brandon Ingram 

This kid is a freak of Nature like KD, just 18 years old but this kid is already 6 foot 9 inches tall with a massive i say MASSIVE wing span of 7’3 and a standing reach of 9’1.5″. That is insane and what’s more insane is his recent game before Christmas where he dunked over a defender for the and 1, displaying his length and athleticism as well. 

Here is that NASTY dunk and the reaction of his team mate Chase Jeter says it all. 


Ingram is averaging 14 pts almost 6 rebounds per game and at least 1.5 blocks. 

Here is the wide array of skills displayed by Ingram that included the Nasty Jam over the defender from Georgia Southern.

     Obi Enechionyia led Temple with 25 points.  Its next game is on December 29th at Cincinnati.

Introducing: Ben Simmons – the #1 pick for 2016 the target of 76ers NOT A CENTER!

Ben Simmons

Benjamin “Ben” Simmons (born 20 July 1996) is an Australian basketball player, currently a freshman on the 2015–16 LSU Tigers basketball team. The 208 cm (6 ft 10 in) forward from Melbourne previously attended Box Hill Senior Secondary College and Montverde Academy in Montverde, Florida, and has represented the Australian national team. He is touted as the possible first overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft.[1]

I guarantee you he is not going to be a disappointment like Exum, I am not sold on exum as a top first round pick why? See Jordan Clarkson 44th pick outshining Exum.

Going back to Ben Simmons he’s a monster at 6’10 he plays like a PG with the tenacity and the knack to deliver when it matters.He is not the second coming of Lebron to be honest but he is going to be good in the pro’s.  To me Ben is more of a combo of Shareef Abdur-Raheef and Lamar Odom.  Ben is targeted by LA Lakers, Boston Celtics, Philly 76ers, New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kings.

If you are to ask me I would rather see him play along side Davis they would make the Pelicans have a stronger future. The 76ers on the other hand has the biggest chance of them all and certainly have the pieces to go after Simmons if they dont get the first pick in 2016. I know the NBA season has just started but for teams like Sixers etc. They are looking forward to 2016 Draft already. I cant blame them at all why? Here is what they could potentially get. 

Monster GAME!
