October 29th was the day I’ve been looking forward to all summer. While I despise the weather change, the beginning of basketball season makes my impending hibernation much easier to handle. Goodbye summer, hello Montrezl Harrell.
Did you know Louisville has an NBA player on their roster? Harrell has been picked by many as the breakout star this season and has even been projected by some to go in the top 10 of the next draft. Those predictions were given some validity last night.
To be fair, Harrell was a man among boys. Kentucky Wesleyan did not have a body to match up with him. Neither does most of the NCAA. Harrell is 6’8, 235 pounds with the speed and motor of a point guard. Granted, he doesn’t have the touch of a point guard (he went 2 for 11 from the free throw line) it doesn’t matter because 8 of his 9 field goals were nasty dunks. Check the Sportscenter Top 10 today. Just nasty.
