Although I prefer CBS's coverage compared to espn, they've been sleepin on our huskies so far, that top 100 list they did was hilariousI can't stand cbs anymore
Where is Aaron craft these days anyways?Exactly, TJ McConnell is what the national media loves. A slow unathletic white guy with a broken jump shot who will be playing in Mongolia after college is the media's wet dream.

I'm interested in seeing how Stanley Johnson operates as a college 2 guard. Very physically imposing and someone who should be able to post up smaller guys...but we all know how most college coaches(Hoiberg is really the only that I've seen put his bigger guards in the post) don't take advange of that matchup when it presents itself. He's also very mechanical, I can see smaller guards giving him fits if he tries to get by them off the bounce or trying to keep up with the defensively.
I hadn't read it until you pointed out he wasn't included but yea the starting lineup that was discussed during the summer was McConnell, Johnson, RHJ, Ashley, and Tarczewksi(sp).Are they really planning on using him as a two? I guess they have to if they want to get him, RHJ, Ashley, and Tarz all on the court at once, but you're right, he seems better suited as a three.
Regardless, he isn't mentioned in the article, so I think CBS is operating under the assumption that he's a three which makes their article even more perplexing. Their starting backcourt, to my knowledge, is T.J. McConnell and Gabe York. And while those two aren't bad players, there is very little offense there. Hell, the inability of their guards to consistently create offense was their undoing last season, and that was with Nick Johnson. I do think Arizona will be one of the best teams in the country due to their loaded front court, but this ranking is baffling to me.
