â†µAnd then, late in the game the steal and flush with the silly foul by Jerome Dyson: â†µ
â†µWhat does John Wall love more than getting out on the break and throwing it down? Hugs. (Skip to the 1:58 mark of that clip.) â†µ
â†µThe guy is clearly a one-and-done player, with everyone openly saying he'd have probably been the No. 1 pick in this past draft, let alone next year's, so take every opportunity you can to watch him toying with mere mortals at the college level. His next nationally televised games come against Indiana on Dec. 12 (CBS), Drexel on Dec. 21 (ESPNU), Hartford on Dec. 29 (ESPN2). Once Wall hits SEC season, you'll get a steady dose of his games through ESPN and CBS. â†µâ†µ
â†µA quick tip of the hat is deserved for Kemba Walker, the UConn point guard. He'll be a footnote in today's stories, but his speed is special. If you watched the clip above where Wall dunked on the break and was fouled by Dyson, know that there was a similar play earlier in the game where Wall went into a kind of windup to the dunk that allowed Walker to catch up and steal the ball. How many guys will catch Wall this year? Not many. (That being said, what made it so great was soon after, Walker was chasing Wall on the break again, only Wall adjusted and cut off Walker's pursuit. Love those great point guard matchups.) â†µ
