Since I first saw Burke play, more and more does his game remind me of Allen Iverson's game. I'm no basketball expert, and perhaps its the similar sinze and position, but when I see him play, the first thing that comes to mind is Iverson.
I remember Iverson being great at Georgetown but what I don't remember is how good he was as a true freshman, and wonder if anyone can chime in on Burke's progress at this point vs Iverson as a true freshman.
Regardless, I think Burke will be at Iverson's level when he entered the NBA after his senior year. Burke is a bona-fide star.... and I digress...... by the way, so is Hardaway, but in a few ways Burke's success has masked Hardaway's skills....ie say if Burke wasn't on our team, we'd be relying alot more on Hardaway and you've seen bursts of absolute dominance by Hardaway...... Both Burke and Hardaway are NBA locks.....and I am happy.
Here's a seeding question: Right now, Michigan looks like a 3 seed in the NCAA. If the gods allow and Michigan beats OHIO today, faces and beats Sparty tomorrow, what are the odds of a 1 seed in the tourney? I laugh when I think of it, but hey, I think a 2 seed would be warranted.
BEAT OHIO!! Tomorrow at 4:05 its going down. That is all.
Derrick Walton scored 47 points tonight against Detroit Crockett. Looks like the PG future is bright.
Purdue down big early, has clawed back to tie at 24.
