Last night sure was fun.
If you missed it, four of the top five teams in college basketball met on the court in Chicago with a veritable Draft Green Room worth of talent.
The main event was watching Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins and Duke freshman Jabari Parker going head to head and they delivered in a big way. Parker was outstanding scoring 27 points and hitting four of his seven 3-pointers. Wiggins overcame a slow start and ended up with 22 points and eight rebounds. Both guys showed off their games and their athleticism.
Get excited for June's Draft.
If that does not get you excited, I joined Eric Lopez on Sports Talk Florida this morning to talk about the NCAA's super freshmen sure to change the NBA next year, where they fit in potentially with the Magic (if they are lucky enough to draft one of them) and how the Magic can snap out of this three-game losing streak.
Kansas and Duke faced off last night in what was a match-up between the two best NBA prospects in college basketball. Jabari Parker (Duke) and Andrew Wiggins (Kansas) would both look great in Magic Blue. Is the Magic’s recent losing streak a sign they will contend for one of the two prospects? Also, what is Reich hearing about Glen Davis’ recent temper tantrum.
The Magic play the Bucks tonight at Amway Center trying to snap that three-game losing skid and find their defense again.
