About Scott Anderson

I love covering the Kentucky Wildcats and even though I can't cheer on the outside when I go to games now, I am definitely cheering on the inside. You can follow me at @SAndersonNOB on twitter.

    ESPN is right, lack of hustle and effort has caused it, He should register a 20 and 10 every time he steps on the floor!

      Your a idiot. Just like Davis, he was the 4&5 scorer on the team but without him we would not of won an NC. Randle pulls the defense to him to open up other people. It’s called team ball. Stop making dumb comments. Pisses me off

        Try proper English next time, “your” means belonging to you, should be ” you are” or “you’re”, you must be too young to know basketball!

          Proper grammar does not constitute someone being informed however if you would like to harrass someone over that is your perogative, but maybe next time you should work to limit comma splices in your response to make things easier to comprehend. In order for Randle to increase his draft stock he would have to lead this team to a championship thus carrying the load the entire way. It is probable that they do win a title, but with the supporting cast around him it makes it tough to raise his draft stock from here forward.

    Personally, I think he has improved…. Yes his numbers are down, but I think that is due to his passing the ball out when being triple teamed. Before, he would get triple teamed and take it in. Sometimes he would score and others he would a turn it over or take a poor shot. Now, he is taking less shots and passing out of triple teams. Smarter basketball… Better team player. And we ARE winning. So there isn’t much more criticism you can pile on.

    No way and the pro scouts don’t think so either. The reason why Randles numbers have dropped is because teams are double and even triple teaming him now which they weren’t at the beginning of the season (MSU and UNC), however because they are guarding him so much it’s opening the defense and giving great looks to the rest of the team. That is exactly what you want from a post player like Randle. Who cares if he doesn’t score 20pts a game he doesn’t need to, he creates shots for the rest of the team and gets his.

    Well hell Julius, it looks like you had better stay another season and increase your draft stock! Haha! We could only be so fortunate!
