"They could have gone to NBL, which is where RJ Hampton, lamellar ball played. They could have gone to the traditional route and played it duke or Kentucky or wherever the heck they wanted their 5 star recruits. I think they could have literally just picked wherever they wanted to play college basketball. This was like right before NIL was legalized. And so yeah, I think they had basically could pick wherever they wanted. They were probably better for overtime elite than overtime elite was better for them. Still, they're at the point where they have overcome whatever circumstances they've had to overcome. They've got through this program. They're going to be top ten picks. And yeah, they're going to make history. And I think over time elite will, as you said, they're going to prop them up. They're going to say, hey, you can go take a different route and go through overtime elite. And be a lottery pick. And I think this is going to help recruiting. Hopefully it will help this program continue to grow. There's a lot of professional paths that players can take outside of college now. In BL, G league ignite over time elite. And this is another, I think, emerging very viable path that players can take. Last thing, most people think amen is the superior prospect. Is it clear cut to you? Yeah, I don't think it's clear cut to me. I actually, I asked them who's the better prospect. How do you rank you guys in this class? I asked them also with Victor women Yama and they both said also has and number one ahead of women. And ahead of him, amen has amen at number one. So they both agreed. Nobody knows the Thompson twins better than the Thompson twins, so if they both say amen is the better prospect now, I'll lean that way too. I think asar said it somewhat begrudgingly, and I think he was trying to reel that back like, okay, maybe I should have said it was me. They both think very highly of themselves and rightfully so. You ask good Henderson, who's the best prospect in this class, scoot Henderson, doesn't miss a beat. He thinks he's the best player in this class. Victor women yami asked him. And he's like, well, I'm the best player in this class. No offense to scoop, but if I wasn't born, scoot would be the best point in this class, but I was born, you know? And so they all have this confidence that exudes about them. And so yeah, I think Ahmed is technically probably in the eyes of the NBA. Maybe the more advanced prospect is that maybe a little bit better playmaker a little bit more polish. But also in the NBA draft next month, if I'm in goes number four and also goes number 5 or 6, that won't be surprising. I think it's shockingly close. And in fact, also actually had more assists per game last season than Ahmed did. Despite Ahmed being viewed as the better playmaker and passer. So I think their skill sets are very similar. They're both really good athletes and they've put up huge numbers obviously at overtime elite. And I think we'll be top ten picks in this class. I know I said last thing. One more thing. You and norlander talked about it last week. While I was traveling to New York, everybody, myself included, thinks that that number two pick is coming down to Brandon Miller or scoot Henderson. Could amen does amen. Should arm and be a part of that conversation more than he appears to be at least publicly. Yes, I think so. I think everyone has already chalked it up as it's Brandon Miller and at scoot Henderson. I think omin is in the mix. I talked to Ahmed about this and he said, he thinks he's in the mix. He already met with Charlotte's front office when he was in Chicago and had a meeting with Mitch kupchak. So I think Charlotte, that is more than just, I'm doing my due diligence to me. I think it's okay, we like several guys at this number two spot. And they have to know like, you know, I'm in is not going to be available at number 13 or wherever if they decide to trade up into the late lottery or something. They have their number two pick and if they're going to seriously consider all the options here, I think they're going to be serious about who they want to do some diligence on. And so Brandon Miller scoot Henderson. I think are probably the favorites to go number two. And in fact, go check his kind of said, we're at a point now where we feel like we could prioritize fit over talent, which is a hilarious thing to say after winning 27 games in a season, but so yeah, I think it'll actually end up being amen scoot or Brandon Miller. I think can some order it will be scoot or Brandon Miller, who end up going two, three, but I think all three all three of those guys will be in the mix there. Nada, as a Charlotte fan, open your mic up. Who do you want? The hornets taken at number two. I would put it this way. I have it now in the order of scoot, amen, Brandon Miller. Oh yeah. I like it. I think I would go Brandon Miller, scoot, and then amun. I'm not opposed to the scoot, LaMelo Ball, backcourt. If that's like what you're going to try to do, I do wonder about putting a non shooter with lamella. And I think scoop is going to be awesome. I think he's going to be incredible. Even if the shot never comes around because at that position, when you are when you can do the things he can do as a lead guard, you can actually be great without having without shooting the ball. You'd rather be a. Reliable shooter. But there are, there's a long list of guys who play that position who are great without ever being what any of us would call great shooters. So I think he's going to be great. I wonder if how perfect the fit is with lamella, whereas Brandon Miller has this one skill that is so obviously going to translate as just wing with size, who's going to be able to knock down shots consistently. I know, I think Brandon Miller has those two prospects, Brandon Miller's got the surest translatable NBA level skill. And that's an ability to shoot from the perimeter with size. So I would probably lean that direction, but I don't feel strongly about it. Sometimes I have these big, there's no way I would do anything other than this at number two. And at number two, I could reasonably understand why you would take any of those three guys. If you're that Charlotte franchise, but to our initial point, I would be looking at all three of them, not just scoot and Brandon. I'd be looking at scoot Brandon and amen to. Yeah, I think I still lean scoot over and Brandon Miller at this point. Like, for example, we've seen the Oklahoma City Thunder. Pair gill just Alexander was someone who's not really a shooter, but can be a playmaker and create, which is Josh giddy. I think that would be kind of like the perfect pairing and ideal fit where lamella is the guy who maybe dominates the ball more often than not. He's the better three point shooter, but scoot is a guy who can create as well. He does a lot of different things that would complement LaMelo Ball. And so, yeah, I think probably if it's relatively close in terms of how Charlotte views scoot Henderson brain of Miller and amen Thompson. To me, you just take the best talent because you're franchises in a pretty tough point right now. But yeah, like if they take Brandon Miller and they think he's a better fit or whatever and they see both of them kind of in the same plane. Makes a lot of sense. I wouldn't hate it. Yeah, I think you could go one to three directions there and ultimately we can say we don't think there's much difference in terms of caliber of prospect between these guys, but there will be a difference in terms of caliber player. It'll play out over time. It'll become pretty clear over time who should have been the number two pick. It's just not crystal clear to me right now. So I'll let Charlotte front office figure it out. That's not my job. It's not my job to figure that out. Shouts to Devon daddy, Chelsea, Chester, South Carolina, shelter hook.

"So Kyle was at the combine last week and got some sit down time with the tops and twins. As you noted in a piece you file from Chicago, they are expected to become next month, the first siblings in history to be selected in the top ten of the same NBA draft. What did you learn about the Thompson twins in the time you spent with them? Okay, so this is going to walk us right into a trivia time GP. Okay. There's been a couple twin pairings who have been drafted in the NBA. Can you name the pairings? You don't even have to name the year. Just name the pairings. Brooke and Robin Lopez? Yes. Marcus and Marquis Morris. Are there any other? There is one more, there's one more pairing. One more pairing twins, are they twins? Are twins? Twins. So Morris twins, low-pass twins. Morris twins, Lopez twins, I don't remember any other twins. I know I'll know it when you say it, but I don't know right now. You have to go, you have to go way back. Let's see. Oh, bad radio. Okay. So it's Harvey grant. Oh, and Horace Grant, Horace Grant. Yeah. Yeah. So back in the 80s. So three, three, three sets of twins have been selected in the same draft, but none have ever both gone in the top ten. Safe to say, both of these twins are going to go in the top ten. Everybody has unprotected that way. Horace was actually taking the, let's see. Harvey was drafted the year after Horace. They are taking a different year, but they were taken both in the lottery. Yes. Amen and asar Thompson are expected to be the first twin pairing to be drafted in the top ten in the same year. Both from overtime elite over time elite is a kind of fledgling professional league based out of Atlanta. They got some capital investments from the likes of Kevin Durant, Jeff Bezos, Drake, and the last few years they've spent their time there basically developing as professionals, like they're going through a professional regimen and playing professional schedule. And so now they're at the point where I think right now they could actually end up being two top 5 picks. Very athletic. Very tools. Good playmakers. I talked to him a little bit about the common criticism with over time elite is the level of competition. You watch the games and it's like, man, this is like, it looks like they're playing a little bit advanced version of a pickup at the why. And so I asked them just like, how do you handle doubters and people who watch the games and say, hey, this competition isn't good. And they say like, yeah, I get it. I understand if you want to push back on maybe the competition that we play with, but I'm more of a, I'm more than just a product of OTE. So you could question the competition, but you can't question like my competitive spirit, like how I handle myself, my work ethic, which I thought was like chef's kush just a perfectly great PR response. And I don't know if he had that kind of cued up and ready to go. But I thought it was good. And I think both of these guys, I'm in and asar are two guys who are definitely eager and willing to try and prove themselves because I think they hear kind of the whispers that they're really good athletes. They may be a little bit raw. How's it going to translate going from overtime elite, which no one has came from over time elite and been a first round pick, they have some hurdles to overcome. But I think the NBA is very excited about them, obviously. And they're on the mix. Now, I think to be a lottery picks it and maybe a little bit more than that. It seems like these are the types of prospects who, 'cause I've seen some people, like the overtime elite debate, is just back and forth, like it's either garbage or it's the next great thing. It's not going to be here in 5 years or it's going to be here in 50, like everybody's got wild opinions about it. If I were overtime elite, I would be trying to push that we're going to have two top ten picks. We're not some joke. We are to be taken seriously. And that's fine. I'm not even pushing back on that. But these two guys feel like they would be in this position, literally no matter what they did. If they would have stayed in a traditional high school, if they would have played a year of college, if they would have gone to G league ignite, like these Thompson twins have been on everybody's radar for years. And they were, they're the type, there's sometimes prospects like this. Derek rose could have gone to Memphis or middle Tennessee state. It would not have mattered. He was always going to be Derek rose. Same thing for Anthony Davis. He could have gone anywhere, and he was going to be Anthony Davis. It feels like the Thompson twins. Yes, they are overtime elite products. And if I were over time a lead, I'd be putting them on billboards and saying we got two top ten picks. We made history. But they're not in this position. I don't think and push back if you filled it appropriate. I don't think they're in this position because over time the lead, I think they're in this position because they are uniquely gifted naturally talented, yes, hardworking young men, but mostly just incredibly gifted, naturally talented young people. No, I definitely think that's right. I think that's right. And they committed to over time elite just after another twin pairing committed in 2021, which was the buley twins. But at the time, it was like, what is overtime elite? What are these guys going to do? Who are they going to play? How is this developmental program going to look? And there's definitely been some questions that have come up the last two years about this program. And they could have gone to G league ignite.

"And it's just like him just reaching up and dunking. Like he's not even like jumping. And so him and Ryan Cochran are both doing drills where they're grabbing ball off the rebound and dunking, he showed some range, like he made some three pointers. So I think he showed some things that were kind of impressive. So we'll see. I don't know exactly what he's going to do, but I think probably the decision has not even been decided yet. Yeah, we'll see. I imagine he's going to take it right to the deadline very close to it at the very least. And then ultimately, if I had to bet, I bet he's back at Purdue just because there's a lot of reasons to think he's going to be back at Purdue. A and I know it's complicated, but I'm just going to assume they're smart enough people at Purdue to figure out how to get this name image and likeness stuff where it needs to be. B, do you really want to go out like that with a first round loss to fairly Dickinson? Or do you want to try to rewrite that story and maybe actually take Purdue to a final four? Because with Zack Edie back, I think produce quite clearly a preseason top 5 team. I know what ended poorly in March. But that's the big ten outright champs. Picked in tournament champs and a team that was in undeniable one seat in the NCAA tournament. If they bring basically everybody back from that, I'll rank them based on what they show throughout the entire season, not based on what they showed in the last 40 minutes. That they play. Beyond that, like you said, there's a game scheduling Canada quite intentionally. That's for Zach Edie. Roy Williams used to do this for players all the time. Like he would take, I want to say North Carolina one time scheduled a game at St. Louis so that Tyler hansbrough could go back home and play. And so this is a thing that matters to players and it seems like Matt painter is done this very intentionally another thing to lure him back to campus. And then I think it was a coaches versus cancer, gala recently, certainly within the past month or two. And Tom izzo was quoted multiple times as saying, you know, bats bringing everybody back at Purdue. At Purdue, whoo boy, if Zack Edie's back, they could be really good. He was just matter of factly, you know, Matt's bringing everybody back from a team that won it all. So and I'm paraphrasing here, but he didn't quite say they should be the favorite, but multiple times he just sort of matter of factly, Matt's gonna have everybody back. And I think that's probably because he had a conversation. He's operating under the assumption that Zach Edie is going to be back in school. So for all of those reasons, I assume he'll be back at Purdue and I am currently ranking Purdue accordingly in the top 25 and one. But like I said, we'll see he'll probably take the decision right up to the deadline. Those measurements you spoke of, height, 7 foot four and a quarter wingspan 7 ten and a half, hand length, ten inches. His hands are ten inches, what? Standing reach 9 foot 7 and a half. So he is an unusually large human who is the reigning national player of the year and he's probably got the biggest decision of anybody to make going forward if he leaves, Purdue is still good because Purdue's always good, but if he comes back, Purdue is not only good, they got potential to be great and I would think should be the favorite to win the Big Ten in back to back seasons. While at the combine, Cal got to get some sit down time with the Thompson twins who are probably about a month away from making history.

"They're so tiny. They're just like twigs. It's shocking to look at, honestly. He's got like, he has a good frame, right? Oh wow, he flexing on the. I'm not a Monty base. Look at that. Look at that right there. Look at those biceps. What's that routine? Just vodka sodas, basically. Just like that. That's pretty much the time. That's pretty much the extent of it. It's good-looking. Good-looking. So yeah, I mean like the shot making is something that I think will translate if he can do it a little bit more efficiently. If you can fill out his frame, I think there's still some hope for imani Bates and I think a lot of teams would be excited to take a gamble on him, but no one is going to take a chance on him given his recent history and kind of the trajectory for him the last few years. Anywhere in the first round, I don't think. And so it's maybe a question of how far does he slip? Does he end up getting picked in the second round or is he like a priority free agent? That to me is going to be interesting. He's one of the more famous basketball prospects in a long time. And so yeah, I think it was overall a fairly positive week for him and now I'm curious to see kind of where he goes during this NBA draft process. I see somebody in the chat point out that imani Bates was not in his car. It was somebody else's car. I'm aware, but the point is this. He knew there was a gun in the car and he knew there was weed in the car. Like he wasn't like, oh, this is my uncle's car. Sure, officers, you can search it if you want to. Oh wow, I can't believe there's a gun in here. That's not what happened. He knew he was in a car with weed. He knew he's in a car with gun with a gun and he was in it anyway. That's a problem. And he might not get picked anyway, independent of that, given that he, you know, he's very thin. He's unaccomplished college basketball player. And he doesn't measure well at all. So, and he's not athletic at all. So those could be the things that prevent him from getting picked, but the gun, the gun thing didn't help. And it'll be something that I'm confident he's asked about over and over again by any franchise even considering maybe selecting him in the two 1023 NBA draft. Purdue Zack 80, writing national player of the year, he was there, he did not play 5 on 5, even though he is projected by basically nobody to be a first round pick. Let's stop there. Was that wise in your opinion? To not even try to play 5 on 5. I mean, I probably in his situation, I probably would have. There was a lot of players like in his projected range, which is second round undrafted, who were out there competing like adamus andoga was out there, drew Timmy was out there, Oscar she way. Was out there. I thought he could have done himself some favors by playing in 5 on 5, especially after the athletic testing really did not check out very well. I think he had the lowest max vert of anyone who participated at the combine this week. So that wasn't great. Obviously, the measurements checked out fantastic. He's like 8 foot 11 without shoes and just like a freakish long athlete. So that was good, but yeah, he did not he did not do 5 on 5 stuff and not surprising, I guess, but I feel like he could have maybe done some done himself some favors. My first instinct would be like, eh, you've got to prove people you can play against other NBA caliber guys, and this is a good place to do it. On the other hand, I think if I were advising him, I would have said, don't play. 'cause these things are not set up for him. Like for Zack Edie to shine in a 5 on 5 at the combine. You got to throw in the ball. You got to play through him. That's not really how these games are played. You know, everybody does out there trying to show what they can do. And in free passes to Zack Edie isn't really the way you impress. I mean, I don't think. You impress NBA scouts or show them what they're looking for. So odds are it was going to be an up and down game. Dominated by guards and he can get lost in that. And so I'm not saying that he couldn't have helped himself by playing. There's a scenario I guess where he could have, but more like more than likely, I think he probably does nothing to help himself by playing. Or maybe actually hurts himself. So I get it. I know it's frustrating for front offices. I gather it's frustrating for some fans. Let's get out there and play. Like what are you afraid of? But these are all quite literally multi-million dollar business decisions. And I can understand why an agent would suggest, if not advise Zack eaty, just advise him, here's why you could play, but here are all the reasons you probably shouldn't. So let's just, let's just set this thing out. He did meet with the media though. You were there. Did you get a sense one way or another? How he's feeling about whether to withdraw from the draft and return to Purdue or remain in the draft and call his college career a career. I didn't get a definite read on that. But he did, he was asked about produce scheduling a game versus Alabama in Canada. And he frankly admitted, that's really appealing to me. He's from Canada, the idea of playing again at Purdue next season, playing in Canada was something that I think kind of excited him. And then he kind of went about his diplomatic way talking about how I want to go through this process. I'm going to do what's best for me for my family. I'm going to try and get feedback from NBA teams, feel about what I can improve as a player as a person. And take that feedback and then just make the right decision for him. So I feel like I feel like he will come back to college. But that's not a sure thing. And I think he probably has not even decided. I will say on top of this executive discussion. He did have his own pro day from through his agency. So he did not participate in like 5 on 5 stuff. But he did have his pro day in front of NBA teams in media and he did a pretty good job. I think I might have went viral. I had one of our social girls posted a video that I had taken where Zach edi is dunking.

"There are only a few of us that can say what really happened. About the man behind the crowd. He's one of the most emotional people I've ever met. And the boy, behind the man, Charles sent to young man bullied by his father at school, the other boys had decided they were going to get Prince Charles. He was the boy who walked alone. King Charles, the boy who walked alone, new documentary now streaming on paramount plus. On the subject of players who are more famous than they are good, imani Bates, when you are at the combine talking to NBA front office members, what's the opinion of amani Bates now after two years of college, one awful year at Memphis, and then a statistically significant year at eastern Michigan, but a lot of points for a really, really bad team that lost a lot. Yeah, I think there's maybe some cautious optimism is how I would maybe put it. You know, this is a guy who was 5 star recruit in his class for a long time was ranked as the number one player in his class viewed as the best basketball prospect, regardless of classification, which is basically how we view Victor Whitman Yama now. And so, you know, he reclassified he goes to Memphis, mostly struggles at Memphis as you've noted several times here on this podcast, Memphis was kind of better when he was on the shelf. It goes to eastern Michigan this past season puts up big numbers in a lower level of competition. And yeah, so in a nutshell, he's 6 foot 8. He's a great shop maker. The shotzi takes can be kind of wild. The decisions he makes can be sometimes kind of wild. I think playing within a framework of a system or a structure is maybe not best for him or it's not necessarily where he's thrived. But I thought he had some kind of good moments this week. It's kind of a mixed bag of what we've seen from amani Bates the last two seasons where he's taken some crazy shots and kind of a little bit of a ball sticker, like the ball comes to him. He is not looking to pass. He's looking to shoot it. That's kind of the wrap on imani Bates, but and this is probably reading too much into it, but I'm sitting there watching taking notes and watching his body language. I thought that was really good. He was like really into it and kind of hyping up his teammates giving him high 5s as they made shots was really talkative on the bench. And so, you know, he showed some good things and I'm sure he knew NBA teams were watching for all of those things and seeing kind of how he carried himself this week. And I wouldn't say he did himself any favors this week. I'm not entirely sure my view on imani Bates changed at all. But I do think, you know, from attitude perspective and kind of how he carried himself this week. I thought it was a solid week for him. Also, in his past, something that complicates his draft status is that, you know, he was pulled over in a car and he had weed in the car and he had a gun in the car. I personally don't care too much or at all about if an NBA draft prospect likes to smoke. Like I don't care, but I do think it shows poor decision making for you to have what is technically an illegal substance in your car when you are an NBA draft prospect like amani Bates is. For instance, I disagree with marijuana laws in some states. Like, I think marijuana should be legal everywhere. So I fundamentally disagree. I'm not bothered by anybody who smokes or whatever. But the laws are the laws. I can't snap my fingers and change them. And for him to be riding around in a car with a substance that can get you arrested under the bright lights that he's under, again, shows if nothing else a tendency to sometimes make bad decisions. The gun is problematic. Like I do have a real problem with the gun. And I saw a quote, I guess it was from Adam zagoria at the very least Adam is the one who tweeted it. But in the executive had told somebody, the same thing, the source front office executive blah blah blah. Said, you know, nobody's messing with that. You better, if you're gonna, if you're gonna be, if you're gonna be riding around with guns, you better be as talented as John morant. Bates is already a questionable prospect. So that'll be something that also it's just something fun offices have to consider. Why was he riding around with a gun and weed in that fashion? And this isn't even one where he can blame it on somebody else. I know he tried. But like, yeah, you're in the car by yourself. I watched the body cam video. He didn't say, oh, he knew he knew he was in a car with a gun and with weed, why did you put yourself in that position? All that said, I won't be surprised at all if I look up at three years in a body basis in the NBA, making shots. Like, if he could, it's pretty clear at this point he's never going to be what some thought he might be when he was 15, 16 years old. Maybe I shouldn't say there's no chance, but it seems unlikely he's ever going to live up to those types of expectations. Or even be an all star level basketball player. But if you're 6 8 6 9 and you can consistently make shots and understand your role, there's a place for you in the NBA. Like everybody's looking for wings with size who can stretch the floor and create space and I do think if he understands his role gained some strength and become an enthusiastic defender and a situational shot maker, like that guy can play in the NBA if he's willing to understand what he needs to be and actually embrace those things. The point you made about gained some strength, you just kind of dropped that in there. That was, I think, a very good point because I talked to several people who were kind of watching and scouting them this week. That was like the first thing that multiple people said to me was like, he is hilariously slender. Like his arms, they're smaller than you GP.

"And they said they texted someone from an NBA team who said basically Amari Bailey with like the cringe emoji face just because he started awful. Bad decisions couldn't finish at the rim. And then from there, like the rest of the week he was really impressive. And this is a guy who's a 5 star recruit. He was top ten in his class. Joined the UCLA team that was veteran. And so he wasn't really relied on until down the stretch for UCLA kind of stepped up as a score. But really to me, I thought the playmaking that he showed in the scrimmage settings was really impressive and that to me I thought was kind of his biggest selling point because we know this guy can score it. He can get to the rim whenever he wants. But if he's going to be like a true combo garden and is able to create off the dribble and as a playmaker, I thought that was really impressive. So coming into the week Bailey was a top 30 prospect on the CBS big board and yeah, he's going to stay that way. I think we have them like top 20 now when the big board gets updated later this week. You know, he's a 6 5 guard who averaged 11.2 points 3.8 rebounds, two point two assists, 1.1 steals per game. Playing 26.9 minutes per contest for a UCLA team that was obviously very good. Shot 30 8.9% from three. Now, not many attempts per game just 1.8, but like when he shot him, he made him at a pretty good rate, like you said, you've got him going 30th in your latest mock draft. He's one of those guys who was a super famous high school player because of where he played because of social media, like, frankly, because his mom is famous and has dated Drake, among others. So he got a lot of attention, but coming out of high school, I think most people thought he's more famous than he is talented. He's more famous than he's among the most famous freshmen in the country, but he's not probably going to be a one and done first round pick. That seemed to be the consensus heading into his freshman year at UCLA and now, you know, as always, we'll see. But he's at least got a chance to be selected in the first 30 picks, which means that on some level he's spent the past year proving some people wrong. Yeah. And like a very recognizable name. Right. Now, just because I think social media is what it is. Now you go on House of highlights and this dude is jumping out of the gym. He's very athletic. Combine that with the fact that his mom was dating Drake. It's a guy that people recognize and see and know, but coming into his freshman season, it felt a lot like this guy's like a great highlight real player, but not totally convinced. He's a definite one and done player and I think the polish that he showed this week, kind of the progression he showed throughout the season at UCLA, playing, of course, under Mick cronin, the greatest UCLA coach in school history. Was really impressive. And to me, I thought he had a really difficult stay or go decision. We'll see, but I think it's a pretty easy decision and I would expect that he probably stays in the NBA draft. Fantasy football today in 5, part of the CBS sports podcast network is here to help you get through the long NFL off season and get you ready for the start of fantasy football draft prep season.

"Kyle had a name one winner from the combine. Who walked out of there, helping himself the most. Yeah, look at me, I'm going to start this podcast off by not following directions. I couldn't narrow it down to one, so I went with two. And I feel like two is about right. Two people who stood out from scrimmages on day one, both shut it down going into day two. And typically, that is like the oh, okay. They really did a nice job on the first day and improved their stock. The first was omacs prosper, who's from marquette, tested well with the 40 and a half inch max vert. He had 21 points, 7 rebounds in the scrimmage, 7 foot one wingspan, energy guy who kind of impacted the game with hustle with cutting, creating second chance points. And the other number 99, and I was in the stands watching this scrimmage behind an NBA team who was watching this game and kind of one of the, one of the decision makers will say kind of pop back to his scouting staff and said, who is number 99? And I'm like sitting there like, that's a great question. Who is number 90? I have no idea. So I'm pulling out my sheet. Tristan vujovic. 7 footer who plays in the Adriatic league was really, really impressive. He played so well in the first day that he did not show up on day two, had 21 points in just 16 minutes, made a fadeaway jumper, hit a three, scored 12 points in just a matter of a few minutes. And did I mention he's 7 foot? Oh, he's 7 foot. So really impressive, I thought the movement, the skill that he showed. And obviously when you're, you know, when you play one day and then don't show up the next day. As has been the case, like historically, that typically means either you got a promise to be a potential first round pick or you did so well that you have nothing to gain from continuing to compete at the combine and both of those guys to me stood out. So if you were big boarding them right now, where would you have them? Okay. Spoiler alert here. I've got big board coming up later this week. Woohoo. Yay. Oh, max prosper. He is going to be number 30, where is he? He is 27 on the big board. So he moved up from in the 40s all the way up to 27, which would be potential first route pick would be a late first round pick if you were kind of projecting it out. Much of it moved up. He was not on the big board. Of course, we only did top 50 before the NBA draft combine. He's now 48 on the big board. So he is in the mix that would put him as like a mid to late second round pick. Don't have the great feel on exactly where he will go, but based off of how we performed this week. I think it went from like a potential two way guide to definitely in the mix to be drafted and maybe even 48 would be a little bit low. We'll see kind of in the next couple of weeks how he continues to improve his stock. On omics prosper, he has maintained his college eligibility, hasn't he? He has. Yes. So would you think based on what you saw at the combine? And it's always an interesting situation, coaches must find themselves in. Like if your shock is smart, you recruit these young men, you want what's best for them on a surface level, performing well at the combine is what's best for them. It's awesome. But it also might be the thing that now keeps him in the draft and you lose a key piece to a team that won a big east title and biggie's tournament title. So it's like, it reminds me of coaches on the grassroots circuit. Like they've got a player committed at the mid major level. And you want your guy to, you know, play well, but not too well because if he plays too well on this stage, well then the power conference level schools are going to get involved and you might not be able to keep him committed. Same thing here. Omacs prosper goes to the combine, maybe he's legitimately on the fence about what he's going to do. Performs well, test well. And now he might be leaning more towards staying in the draft, so this good week for him is possibly a bad week for marquette if that makes sense. Yeah, I think the price of the bricks going up. Now whether or not omax prosper comes back to college or stays in the NBA draft, I don't know. I would say probably he is leaning towards staying in the NBA draft just because he played so well this week he tested so well this week. He's come off a really good season at marquette. If he decides to come back to college in IL opportunities, I think are going to be opened up in a way that maybe they weren't before this season, but either way, I think the decision for him going into the week was, you know, do I take a gamble? Do I maybe get a guaranteed contract does a top 40 ish draft pick? And now I think it's like, okay, this guy could go top 30, which would be first round. Or who knows? Maybe this guy continues to rise because he was really impressive, showed some stuff creating on the ball, attacking off of the dribble. Like this could be a guy just with his size, his athleticism could end up being like a top 20 pick, in which case I think it's a no brainer he should stay in the NBA draft. I think that's probably the direction he's leaning. But he has kept his options open at least for now and has it committed one way or another. So give me some other players who maybe help themselves or hurt themselves from your perspective at the comment. I know. And an email you sent me Amari Bailey, you think helped himself? Yeah, Amari Bailey was one that I thought looked really good. It's funny because the first game from scrimmage I saw him in was like maybe four minutes into the game and I ran into another media member and I was like, man, what's your takeaways from what we've seen so far?

If you're watching on YouTube, smash the like button like your Brandon Davies, you have consent and if you haven't yet subscribed to the CVS sports college basketball YouTube channel, please do that while you're here. Okay, let's get into it. Thursday sweet 16 games are officially in the books. We're going to get to all four of them before we're out of here, but there's no better place to start than with the one that finished last. Gonzaga 79 UCLA 76 in an absolute thriller. UCLA was up 13 at the half, then Gonzaga went up ten points late, then UCLA erased that lead with an Amari Bailey three with 13 seconds left to go back up and then Gonzaga retook the lead on a Julian straw three with 7.2 seconds left. Strong jaw before we show everybody the play, which is going to look very familiar. If you're a college basketball fan, make sense of what we just saw out in Las Vegas. I can't. I can't right off the bat. I have no idea what just happened. Gonzaga could not stop UCLA on offense for 25 minutes of this game. And I had it on my second screen thinking this is not even going to be close. UCLA is running away with it. Amari Bailey was big in the first half and storms back. They take the lead and you think, okay, Gonzaga's got this. And then they don't have it. And UCLA takes the lead late. Amari Bailey makes a big shot. And suddenly, the Gonzaga's on the ropes. And then lo and behold, as we'll allude to here in a moment, Julian strother, from the logo, pulls up for three. He's the hero of the day, huge game for him, huge game for drew Timmy. The zax moving to the elite 8, one of the best games, I don't want to be too hyperbole, too in the moment, but this feels like definitely maybe the best game of the Instagram tournament so far. We had two really good ones tonight. In the spirit of full transparency, up until about 20 minutes ago, we were starting this podcast with marquise Noel. And his incredible performance inside Madison Square garden in his hometown to get Kansas state into the elite 8. And we're going to get to that. The only reason I tell you that now is because my notes are all over the place. I've had to totally re scramble and reshuffle an entire show. So if it seems a little scattered, it's because it is a little scattered. But let me try to walk you through exactly how this UCLA Gonzaga game unfolded again. So like I mentioned, UCLA's up 13 at the half, 46, 33, the zags were turning the ball over. They couldn't really get stops. It looked like they were possibly on their way to getting blown out. And if not blown out, at least eliminated from the NCAA tournament. Jaime hockey, for UCLA scored with 1230 left in the game. To put UCLA up 59 52. And then the bruins missed their next 11 shots. UCLA went on. I mean, Gonzaga rather went on a 20 to four run and it was 72 63 Gonzaga before UCLA scored another field goal with one 14 left. The bruins like literally went 11 minutes and 16 seconds without a fill goal. Like their Tennessee or something. So Gonzaga is then up 70 two, I believe 60 two with two 24 left. Ten point lead with two 24 left. Now I'd written a Yukon column earlier and in that column somewhere, it said the huskies will either play Gonzaga or UCLA in the elite 8 on Saturday. So naturally, with a ten point lead late, I went in and changed it to they will play Gonzaga and then Amari Bailey hit a shot and I was like, oh no, I must change that fact that UCLA or at least league be ready to change it again very quickly. And that is when suddenly down with Adam Morrison of all people sitting courtside. I just felt sick for that guy. 'cause it's, in back in 2006, literally on this day, 17 years ago, where Gonzaga blew a 9 point lead with a little more than three minutes to go. So this would have actually been worse than that. This would have been a bigger collapse than that. And all of this stuff, Adam Morrison sitting there, the zags just squandered a lead against all, I saw this on Twitter that at one point late in the game, Gonzaga was maybe minus a thousand on the money line to win the game. I mean, it was like, and then all of a sudden they were down. In the final seconds. And at that point, again, you'll recognize this play if you're watching on YouTube, it looks very similar to a play that was used to win a national championship for Villanova once upon a time. Take a look at it here. Well, because you've also dominated the offensive glass. Chances are you'll get more than one opportunity.

"Summed it up really well. Let's go with the last one we just listened to work our way backwards here. We just heard Gonzaga and UCLA, the two three matchup in the west region, the zags in an 8th straight, sweet 16, trying to get to their 5th elite 8 since 2015, UCLA trying to get back for the second time in three years and in the first half, the bruins were the much better team. Campbell driving right drops it off for hot guys on the left block and he weighs it in. Second bucket for Jaime hockey is and a timeout taken by Gonzaga with ten O four remaining in the half, but bruins have increased the lead to 8th or largest lead so far in the first. Yeah, they would cause a lot of Gonzaga first half turnovers 9 of them compared to just two for UCLA and they'd increase that lead. Bayley has it over on the right side. Hawkins sets a screen Bayley dribbling left. Bayley inside the foul line spinning in the paint 6 footer over top of Bolton rattles and drops in. That's 11 Bayley. 42 31 UCLA's largest lead is right now. It'd be 13 at the half 46 33 UCLA shot 51% in the first 20 minutes, three players in double figures, Tiger Campbell, and I'm a hawk as were the other two. Meanwhile, for Gonzaga, drew Timmy had 19 of their 33 in the first half, 13 point games. UCLA the first couple of minutes of the first half would keep it in double figures, but I said that Timmy was having a game. Scroller has the Gonzaga rebound. One of the play by Newbie. Here's Timmy with an overall on the left. Timmy spins right around singleton into the lane. Timmy is terrific. He's got 29, 8 nothing Gonzaga run. Time out. UCLA. Zags were within four 54 40 and they kept coming. Sal is looking for space get to destroy the right of center. Strawberry bounce past it Timmy. High right side to Smith. Smith dribbling left gets inside the free throw line down the left side of the wing puts it up and in and Gonzaga has taken the lead 61 59 Gonzaga a 9 nothing run has given the bulldogs their first lead since early in the first half. And UCLA was in the midst of a 9 and a half minute run without a made field goal and that's a problem. Pass goes over to strawberry the left hash mark Lucas. He was front and now they'll bounce to the Timmy 15 feet away left of the lane. Teaming up top malaga Smith three is gone. Smith knocked it in. It's a ten point Gonzaga lead. Two and a half remaining 72 62 Gonzaga. 12 of the 14 for malachi Smith coming in the second half, ten point lead inside of four minutes to go. The offense was on the raw and everything falling. Some like UCLA had nothing left, except UCLA's got experienced players who had something left. Singleton will inbound on the far sideline trying to get it into Campbell and does. Campbell dribbling right into the paint gets into the hot gas, puts it up to the right hand. Podcast hit it again. Foul is gonna go against Timmy it's his second and a hot gas can make it a three point game with 45 seconds left. Which he did 74, 71 with 45 seconds to go. In the ball game. Now, foul, and Don Watson, he'd hit one of two. UCLA would cut it to two on a layup from Jamaica is at 75 73. They fouled drew Timmy. He missed them both last 20 seconds. It's no good back of the rim. Bayley's got the rebound. Outlets at Campbell. UCLA is down to 19 seconds remain. Campbell with the dribble out front. Tiger Campbell driving left into the paint gets it to Bayley left wing free for the lead. Timeout UCLA. A Maury Bayley, the freshman steps up and knocks down a big time three. UCLA leads by one 76 75 12.2 to go. The bruins have risen from the dead. 19 points for Amari Bailey, they completely erased what was a late ten point deficit. The problem was for some reason, against UCLA,

"Already let it down. I'm taking part Atlantic plus the 5 and a half. Congrats to Tennessee. Because I'm also taking Florida Atlantic plus the 5 and a half, and I'm taking Florida Atlantic straight up. Straight up. FAA is going to win. I got far atletic straight up too. They're going to lose by 22 points. It's over for them. It's over. Dusty. I'm happy for you. Who do? I'm happy for you. I'm happy for you. You had a wonderful season. But I'm afraid you have no chance of winning this next game because we both picked you to win it. It is. This is the first conference USA team has mentioned before to make the second weekend since the Memphis tigers in 2009, credit to Chris falca, that there he put this out on Twitter though. Four seats are 6 and ten facing team seated 8th or 9th in the sweet 16. Since 2000, there are two and 7 against the spread when facing them. So 6 and ten overall four seats are versus 8 or 9. Keep that in mind. Janelle Davis, by the way, has been a dude for the owls, man. 29 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals in FAU's win over after you. The first player to ever do that in a tournament. Sustain itself down the stretch, FAU pulled away. And it was basically as a David. Davis single handedly outscored the knights over the final 8 plus minutes of that game. Listen, the reason why in all seriousness, the reason why I'm taking Florida Atlantic in this one is 33 wins, it's got experience up and down the roster. There is no team that is in this tournament that is more experienced playing with each other and has a deeper bench. And I actually think that does matter with the way that dusty May and this team plays. They get out and guard you beyond the three point line and on the interior they are reliable in that regard. Now to get here, FAU needed a break from the officials because Memphis probably should have had that time out. They called a jump all the era winter at the owls, so they got that near the end of the game. And then they were able to rally late, but they didn't shoot well for the majority of that game against after you, 16 C, maybe got a little bit tight. Now they're here. They have been FAU has been abnormally subpar shooting the ball basically since it got to postseason play a play well against UAB, but first couple of CU USA tournament games and then against Memphis and FDA, it just hasn't been shooting well. Tennessee is not the team to break that trend against normally speaking, but maybe the hoop gets a little bit bigger there. The are coming off such an extremely impressive defensive performance. They jumped UCLA. They're now the number one per session defense again in college basketball according to Ken Tom. So it's going to be difficult. Teams are only shooting 26.4% from three point range against Tennessee that has been something that has been existed since the start of the season. On average, FAU shoots 36.7. If you're the owls, you're hoping you play well and you're above 30% and you take the hockey shifts and hopefully hopefully show out. It'll be interesting, but I'll take FAU to win straight up, which means I've got owls versus wildcats and the elite 8. To the west regional, that's where we got 8 seat Arkansas four seed Yukon and then three sea Gonzaga against the two seed UCLA. That's Thursday's double header it's at a T mobile arena in Las Vegas, losers are done winter to play Saturday. UConn UCLA are actually the co favorites to come out of the west. At plus two ten, Gonzaga's plus two 25, Arkansas plus 5 50. What interests you about the west regional? Pretty much everything. This is the best Tupac on the board. As far as I'm concerned, I think many people, if you're not to invest in any of the specifically the other teams playing, you might agree, you might even agree regardless of that. It is incredible that Gonzaga has made an 8 straight, sweet 16. That's now the third longest streak in the history of the sport since the bracket expanded anyway. Only Carolina and duke did better Carolina went 13 years in a row, 81 to 93 duke went 98 to O 6 and now Gonzaga's done at 8 straight years. Timmy, by the way, drew, love to see it. You know, we talked to me, obviously, recently on the podcast I did the big feature on him and Gonzaga had the stand-alone stuff with the WCC title run he's now had, and this graphic was flashed on the screen. So if you were watching you and seen it on Sunday. But he's now in this company, he's had 20 or more points in 9 tournament games. One more, and he's going to have the record. He's going to have the most 20.2. If he gets 28, even if he loses, he gets 20 against UCLA. He has a record right now. Rip Hamilton, corus Williamson, Glenn rice, Danny Manning, elvin Hayes and Bill Bradley. Come on, man. That's incredible company. So, and I love the F bomb to Andy Katz OD over the air. I thought that was, I thought that was all too appropriate for drew Timmy. Contagious, it is looking like the team that people thought it should look like when they picked it to reach the regional final here or make the final four. And it's going to go up against the UCLA squad. That I think has comported itself pretty damn well. This is the team that's third overall Ken palm second in defense. And it got a good game from northwestern. It did, but Jaime Hawkins was awesome again. And I thought Amari Bailey played pretty well. Singleton went down. He's, I guess he's expected to play. I mean, I don't know if we have that a 100% confirmed at this point, but after the game, cronin and singleton basically shrugged it off, which is great to see. I hope he's on the floor. I want to get the best game possible. And this game will land on the 17 year anniversary to the day to the day, I think. I've heard a few people say that, so I'm taking it for the word. I don't actually know what GPL check this in real time right now here. Who do you like in Gonzaga versus UCLA? Because this is the best. This is the best of the regional semis all 8 games. That's my favorite game. Of the sweet 16. I will take Gonzaga to win the game. Obviously, there's history between these two programs, just two years ago, is when you had Jalen suggs at the buzzer in OT in the final four bubble final four banked it in. Bill raftery with the call. He said, quote, there are onions gym, and then there are major onions with a kiss. Yeah. And of course, the game you're referencing is the 2006 game. Where the zags were up 71 62 with three 14 left. And then UCLA scored the final 11 points to win the game 73 71. I went back and watched the end of this last night. Oh gosh. Oh, it's just, it's hard to watch. By the way, to the day 17 years when they play this game it will be, yeah. So there are up 71 62 with three 14 left in UCLA's closes on an 11 O run wins the game 70 three 71. Everybody remembers the picture, the visual of Adam Morrison sitting on the court crying. He started crying before the game was over. The game is still up for grabs, and he's already in tears. After his team had collapsed the way they had collapsed, I got a trivia time.

"Got hurt. He's their best defender. He may be the country's best perimeter defender. Their best transition player only he and Arizona zuzu is developed scored. They think we're the two leading scorers and transition in the PAC 12 on the season. And he's a downhill driver that goes right into your chin every time he takes it up. But without him, they're not as good. Other guys have stepped forward. The quote unquote role players, but are in a role that doesn't mean that's all they can do, like Amari Bailey stepped forward and they've done a good job and Tiger Campbell scored more. But Gonzaga can really score. The probably the best offensive team in that region. It'll be interesting to see if they can rebound and defend with UCLA. But that'll be a hopefully a high score game because you remember the final four a few years, a couple of years ago, they played that game where Jalen suggs hit that shot at the end. That half court shot went at it in the bubble. It would be nice to feel a little bit more scoring in some of these games that have turned into slugfest. But I still think Yukon is the best team in that region. And they're playing the best right now, but playing the best doesn't mean anything if you don't carry it forward into next week. And in the Midwest, it's the only region in the bracket where the top three seeds survived and Miami of Florida is the 5th seed that knocked off fourth seeded Indiana. So how do you see that one playing out? Well, I think Houston and Texas are the two best teams. I would expect them both to advance, even though Miami's they've got Miami has got so many shot makers. Isaiah Wong and Jordan Miller, Nigel PAC. Those guys can really score. And they don't they can create their own, which is unique. They're kind of like an MBA team in that regard. But

We'll give it to you coming up here in a moment, Doug, again, like 5, 6 years ago for northwestern 2017 when they were there. They won the first game. They took Gonzaga to the wire tonight. They take UCLA to the wire, but it's the bruins going back to the sweet 16 for a third straight year. And it exposed some of the issues with UCLA where Jaime Hawkins is awesome as he's been throughout his career. He struggled to guard there in the second half, their offense kind of stalled out. They were looking for that, looking for one more perimeter player without Jalen Clark as Amari Bailey's a talented kid, but he's just a kid as you're playing against grown men for 5th, 6 year guys. But for UCLA, this is who they are with Nick krona. They're just tough. And they just find a way For northwestern, I'm in the story is Chris Collins is going to be there for probably the long term. You know, there's a lot of questions coming into the year as he lost Pete and answer transfers to North Carolina. He loses right young who transfers to duke and the thought is, all right, just a matter of time. That they're going to have to let him go and turns out they finish an incredible big tense schedule. And then they get to the term for the second time in school history. He's been the head coach for both. And then they win a game and push UCLA to limit a blind man can see Chris belongs in Evanston as head coach of the cats. Well, they had the two seat in the Big Ten tournament, right? So not only did they not only did they have a heck of a year, they were the two seed in a league that was very after perdue was very mixed in the middle, but they were right there. All right, in that floor on Sacramento, the two seed survived, so there is no upset in the nightcap. Earlier today, though, different story. Princeton taking on Missouri after beating Arizona on Thursday, 59 55. They jumped Missouri from the get go in the second half was even bigger. Lang

Kennedy has made it his mission to kind of work on his jumper on the off season and so far so good. So I don't want to knock the kid for playing and doing everything he wants. I have a 25 and that's just kind of like, again, philosophically with smaller guards and the NDA, it's hard to make it work. But I don't hate that pick either. Yeah, and look, like, I'm trying to pull up where I had him in the preseason I actually don't really remember. Like I think I had him probably around like 21 22. Let's see. I had him at him at 18, I guess. So I like Kenny Chandler. I think he's a good basketball player. He knows how to play basketball. Like that's kind of the critical thing. He's really going to struggle defensively, but he might be really, really good offensively. And look, we're doing this after two games. And it's hard. Right. Some of these guys have looked bad, some of them have looked good. We'll see. Yeah. Well, all right, well, the rocket firearms. 60 16. I'm gonna take a guy who has like four points. This season, I'm gonna go with paint Watson from UCLA. Yeah, he was next. I don't know what to do with him. He like a lot of the prospects. He's past the I text. He's long and lean. He gets off the ground. He's averaging two points per game, and I don't know how much this role expands on such a loaded UCLA team. Since he was awesome and they have all the pieces, they returned everybody taking him here for me. This is like a futures like cryptocurrency stock that it's maybe this is like pre drafting or the domestic traffic stash. Let's get him in the franchise. Let's set him to G league. Let's give him a ton of reps and hope it pans out. Because he sticks around UCLA, he's gonna be great in the year with Jaime gone with Johnny gone and you're bringing in Amari Bailey.

I'm gonna have I'm gonna cop out a little bit here because I haven't seen enough guys in person to really do it. I'm probably this is anti just like my belief system because I hate bags. I'd say right now could be Derek lively. I really like Amari Bailey, but I have to see shady sharp in person before I actually give it like a true stamp. So I've really only seen the top ten to 15 guys. Like I'd seen a little bit of Adam bona, I've seen a little bit of MJ rice because I think that you and I were texting about him and after he committed to Kansas and I was trying to figure out okay, is he interesting? Is he good? Obviously, seeing pretty good amount of Dior Johnson. I think George. Yeah, I was going to say, I think that my top two right now would be, I think my top three would be Amari Bailey, Derek lively chianti George. I would say that I think Derek lively is the player in the class most likely to be an NBA starter. I would be pretty surprised at this point if he's not like a high level NBA starter at some point. I also like if he puts it all together Brandon Miller 6 8 Wayne good length shoots it defends a little bit. But it's open, man. It's open season. When you lose guys that I don't know if you'd say people expected to still be there, but it wasn't necessarily like a done deal until late in the game. Like the jail and Durant thing was in motion, but didn't really I watched play the pangos and whatever it was this summer. And then he had eligible late. So he was just expected he was still kind of be there and now we're scrambling and the rankings don't have to be right. And guys develop, and it's different and we're shading sharp it. It's been such this explosion of out of ranks and then 24 7 had like 65th like prior to the season and then he exposed and I was one. So he's also got to deal with it too, because the loss stuff comes with those type of expectations once you fly off draft boards like a guy like Marco folks did. It's an awesome burden to continue to have to back that up. Yeah, and the thing with shade and sharp that is worth remembering too is he is on an incredible upward trajectory that makes you think he's going to keep getting better and he's going to keep getting better. So definitely it works and works that everything it says is like he gets to the gym and works. He is frustrated, but he wasn't turned off by not being as productive at sunrise Christian before he left just spent the summer of the gym getting better and developed his shot to the point where he shot 40 plus percent from three ten the summer. Yep. Yeah, very interesting 2022 recruiting class. And the last thing I'll finish on is this year is going to be a wild one for Kentucky. You know, they have gotten shade and sharp already. They had sky Clark, who is recovering from a knee injury still, right? ACL, yeah, coming back..
