Just a question for you? What was the deal with the big kid from Memphis who was there a while? Austin Nichols I think?

When he was here I always liked his vision and unselfishness. Had he stayed I would have preferred him stay at PG and work on his quickness around the perimeter and his defense. He looked solid running the floor on fast breaks but seemed a step slow on defense, which is not uncommon for freshmen.

At UVA he's slipped down to the 3 spot and has bulked up quite a bit and added some muscle to his frame. I've never been a fan of moving a guy off ball because of his size. I remember when JP Prince transferred from Zona and we did the same thing with him. A good ball handler who can run the floor in transition is invaluable but in college it's all too common for a coach to spread taller guys out in the lineup.

Tyler Smith was a great ball handler and passer who excelled as a point forward and I think Darius's game and physical stature is similar in many ways (to a lesser extent) to Smith's.

JP Prince was not a good ball-handler though.

Weird. One game only at Virginia.

Based on what? Louisville had a halftime lead. You're just assuming. Louisville was missing their 2nd and 3rd leading scorers, plus Mathiang, all of which average a combined 30 ppg.

One of the radio guys in Memphis is good friends with Nichols and he said Nichols has lost all desire to play basketball. He just grew tired of basketball being his 24/7 job. He was just going through the motions and no longer had a passion to play.

He also said any team that considered trying to bring him in for next year had better be very careful because Nichols is going to need time to figure out if he really ever wanted to play again.

considering Mathiang didn't score, and Adel had 8 on 3-9 in the first game against Virginia,I don't think that 30 happens

Yeah, the whole Nichols/UVA thing was weird. He sat out last season due to transferring, got suspended two preseason games for a violation of team rules, then got booted after playing one game. Whatever happened was kept very quiet, but people here worship Tony Bennett so whatever Austin did, people feel like him getting dismissed was justified.
