Postby NetsBall4Real » Tue Dec 08, 2009 11:21 pm

Its on national on ESPN @ 9:30 pm EST..We will get a good look at the freshman on the national stage. Lets see how he perfroms. He hasnt been looking for his offensive game and has been giving his big men the ball. I expect more of that. Coach Cal has him being more of a playmaker even though he can score the ball. Nice teacher I must say...Lets post here on your thoughts.

Edited for respect :D

Kemba Walker's really good. He's a hidden talent in the Big East, not talked about much....but he can really get it done. He's fast as heck. I wouldn't be surprised if he matched Wall's speed. He can also hit shots. Heck of a player.


I'd say he's more of a test than UNC's PG.

Wall scores season-high 25 to help Wildcats down Huskies

NEW YORK -- Freshman John Wall scored a season-high 25 points, including 12 of Kentucky's last 15 in the game, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats beat No. 14 Connecticut 64-61 on Wednesday night in the SEC/Big East Invitational.


Wall lived up to his billing in his first appearance at Madison Square Garden, overcoming first-half foul trouble and dominating the game over the final 7½ minutes.

The Wildcats (9-0) moved John Calipari closer to one of the icons at the school that has more wins, 1,996, than any other program. The only coach to have a better start to his career at Kentucky was Adolph Rupp, who started 10-0 in 1931.

There were two totally different halves played in front of the crowd of 15,874, which seemed split down the middle.

Jerome Dyson had 17 points for the Huskies (6-2), who finished 14-of-24 from the free-throw line, including 2-of-4 in the final three minutes.

First time I got to watch a Kentucky game and Wall blew me away within the first three minutes of the game. Right out of the gate, he had a gorgeous alley-oop flush on the break, a jumper and a coast-to-coast lefty layup in traffic, six points that fueled an opening 12-0 Wildcat lead. I'd heard about it but I couldn't believe how fast he was with the ball and it looked effortless. Of course, following that quick spurt, he got into foul trouble and sat a chunk of the first half but I was already convinced. From what I've read, he sounds like a character guy, too. i want this guy.
