Hoops Draft Notes

Blurb on Will Bynum:

Three days into the camp, Thomas had done little to separate himself from the likes of fellow guards Will Bynum (Georgia Tech), John Gilchrist (Maryland), Travis Diener (Marquette), Luther Head (Illinois) and Anthony Roberson (Florida).

More mention on Willie B:

4. Will Bynum, Georgia Tech: He appears too small in the eyes of some scouts, but his athleticism and fearlessness are helping his stock rise.

Here's a blurb on Luke Schenscher:

Whaley scored nine points and grabbed seven rebounds in a camp game Wednesday against the likes of Luke Schenscher (Georgia Tech), Pops Mensah-Bonsu (George Washington) and Ronny Turiaf (Gonzaga). He was limited to 17 minutes due to foul trouble.

Here's a Jarrett Jack profile with a nice video clip worth watching..... This link might work also (might)....

Wow, read Randolph Morris's quotes on going pro - he's talking about KY in the past tense and you can detect no emotional connection with the school, the team or the coaching staff. He's just plain ready to leave.

"They obviously know the NBA was in my dreams in the first place," Morris said. "We've been on the road and they've been recruiting, so we really haven't had time to sit down and converse at all."

Yoni over at his 'blog put it great:

Morris' decision to remain in the Draft makes sense. Why be unhappy and poor in college rather than unhappy and rich in the pros?

Well said, and I no longer have ANY negative feelings about losing Morris to UK. You want people at Georgia Tech who want to be there - who have a passion for the old gold. That's why I really hope Zam Fredrick finds his passion for Georgia Tech, and that is consists more than his quantity of playing time. Jarrett Jack gets it, or should I say got it. He has that passion and he has the skills to leave early. But his legacy is cemented and that legacy is important to him - to be in the lineage of great GT Point Guards - to forever be linked with Mark Price, Kenny Anderson, Travis Best, Stephon Marbury, Craig Neal, Tony Akins, and the list goes on..........
