As a result of Michigan's resurgence in hoops, I find myself watching a whole lot more college basketball and paying attention to all the Big Ten games. Watching the OSU-Northwestern game last night got me thinking about which players I like to watch play (and which ones bug me for no apparent reason). Here is my list (not necessarily the best player on each team):
Favorite - Chester Frazier: the obligatory "wasn't he around 6 years ago?" veteran
Favorite - The managers that were pulled onto the roster...j/k
Kyle Taber: Stuck around as the only senior on the team (Those who stay?), and gets the CJ Lee/Nick Sheridan award for "he used to be walk-on!"
Favorite - Jake Kelly: guys from Indiana just look like they belong on a college basketball court (whoo Novak and Douglass!)
Favorite - Kalin Lucas: he is going to be phenomenal
Least Favorite - Goran Sutan: I don't like big lurches apparently
*Special mention for Paul Davis who always annoyed me (probably because he killed us on several occasions)
Favorite - Ralph Sampson III: he plays tough, and is a post presence (almost cost us!)
Favorite - Kevin Coble: He just finds ways of being all over the floor
Least Favorite - John Shurna: Looks like he should be delivering my pizza, not playing basketball
Favorite - Evan Turner: obviously great, has control when he takes it to the lane
Least Favorite - BJ Mullens: another Lurch that annoys me
Favorite - Talor Battle: that last second shot vs. Illinois won me
Favorite - E'Twaun Moore: I like his play just a bit more than Hummel
Favorite - Marcus Landry: Mr. Goggles
Who do you like? Who bugs you for no discernible reason?
EDIT: forgot about Minnesota, whoops! fixed.
