Remember the name: Brandon Knight

This 2010 blue chip point guard has about every elite program looking for his services. He is the highest ranked point guard in his class and has won 2009 Gatorade National Basketball Player of the Year,Panhandle Sports Broadcasting 2009 Class 3A Tournament MVP, First Team All-State selection, and was a Nominee for Gatorade Male High School Athlete of the Year Award. He has developed a consistent mid-ranged shot, but is best in the open court and has the strength to finish through contact. He is also a great on the ball defender and has no problem locking down on the opponents top scorer. He has added a change of speed/direction to his game and has a tremendous first step. He needs to work on his left hand so that opponents won't ride his shooting hand. Brandon looks to be the real deal and one to stay at a school only a year or two.

Calhoun breaks five ribs

Meet Jamaal Trice

This 6-5, 180 pound, shooting guard flew under the radar because of his unselfish play. He is known as a pure shooter and a great defender. His coach, Gary McKnight, said, “We had about eight Division-I players last year. And he was our best defender.” Jamaal considers himself a driver and should fit in well, because he loves the running style that UConn uses. He has surprising athleticism and can play above the rim. He can create his own shot with a tremendous first step and is a solid glue-like defender. He has a jack-of-all-trades mentality and doesn’t shy away from contact in the paint.

Splitting the conference

With last years uneven scheduling, where Louisville only played the top teams once and won the conference title, it would be better suited to have the conference split into two distinct divisions. The teams would play a handful of teams in their division twice and play the other division teams once. Though working with a conference of this size and depth of talent there is no perfect solution, but having a random schedule also isn’t fair. The divisions would consist of teams that share similar rivalries, location, and even distribution of expected powerhouses.

The Big East tournament would have both leagues on opposite sides of the brackets with the winner of each league to play each other for the Big East tournament championship. It would add another dimension of rivalry to an already rich rivalry conference.
