He's not gun shy, but hell that's a good thing with this team. Many players seem to be lacking confidence, but not this guy, I love it.

He may help ease the issues some people have with CCMs recruiting. Yemi showed again last night that he's a very good post defender, and I stick to my thought that his senior year he'll be a double double guy.

If Reese ends this year averaging 9-10ppg some people might not be as concerned about his evaluations and recruiting.

It's not just his offense but his defense that impresses me. Dude had a sweet block last night then ran the floor and scored at the other end. You can't teach that type of heart.

He also got tossed around a good bit last night. He's performing very well, but don't expect him to start going 35 mpg.

He's pretty skinny still too. I do like his hustle. It's more then I can say for Stokes right now.

I know if and buts...but if Maymon was playing and we had a true PG this team would be day and night different.

25 looks likely, and who saw that?

The block was nice, but overall he got schooled by Wiltjer. Wiltjer scored most of his points with Reese on him. Kenny Hall kept him in check much better.

I saw Huntington prep play tonight. Landry had a good game. He may not score much (I think he had 6) but he plays hard and plays good defense. Huntington prep lost tonight to a good la lumiere team. Rumor is Andrew wiggins was sick. Wiggins didn't do much

It wasn't so much he got worked over in the post, but that he couldn't get out and cover Wiltjer on the 3s. Should get better at that with experience. I hope.

Dude Wiltjer posted up on Reese at least twice and swung him around like a rag doll. Wiltjer hit at least two of those 3s with Stokes or Hall guarding him.

If you can't guard Wiltjer one on one, you aren't going to be able to guard many other SEC players.
