According to Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader, Kentucky might play a four-guard lineup next season. Some of the players are excited about the possibility. "That would be nice if we did," freshman guard Jodie Meeks said. "We could be sort of like the Golden State Warriors." Next season, the Wildcats are going to be loaded on the perimeter, with seniors Joe Crawford and Ramel Bradley, sophomores Meeks, Derrick Jasper and Michael Porter, as well as freshman Alex Legion. The only problem could be that there is no proven point guard in the mix. Meeks said he has experience at the point before, and would switch if needed. "In high school, I'd switch over to point guard if we needed a big play or someone to set up the offense," Meeks said. "I'm pretty familiar with it. If the team needs me, I'll play it." The bottom line is winning, though. "The more we win," he said, "the better everybody looks."
Gary Parrish of CBS Sportsline.com writes that UAB will be the most improved team in the country next season. The reason for the optimism is the addition of three big-time transfers in Robert Vaden from Indiana, Walter Sharpe from Mississippi State, and Channing Toney from Georgia. Additionally, the Blazers bring in another top 100 freshman and a JC All-America. He says: “UAB is the wise man's pick to jump from eighth to second in the C-USA standings.”
