The Sporting News released their All Freshman team and Kentucky’s Alex Poythress and Nerlens Noel are two of the five.
Alex Poythress, Kentucky , SF, 6-7/215
Poythress is one of those matchup nightmares, a 6-7 wing too strong for a small forward to defend and too quick for a power forward.
Nerlens Noel, Kentucky, C, 6-10/215
Ditch the Anthony Davis comparisons, please, and appreciate Noel strictly as a shot-blocking defensive force this season.
I am pretty sure Archie Goodwin will be on this team at the end of the year as well.
Mark it down.
