Analysis

  • Terrence Jones Proves That The NBA Lockout Definitely Affected Early Entry Decisions: “There has been much debate among college basketball watchers about the effect of the looming NBA lockout on decisions to leave school early and enter the draft. Many claim that it has had little effect, but John Calipari noted earlier this year that it would have a major impact, and Terrence Jones’ decision to come back yesterday offers further insight into this.” (A Sea of Blue)
  • What do the Vols look like without Scotty Hopson and Tobias Harris?: “From day one, Cuonzo Martin’s immediate success depended on how many of Scotty Hopson, Tobias Harris, Chris Jones, and Kevin Ware he could get to wear orange next season. Go 4-4, and the Vols could go right back to their 2010, pre-Pearl-drama form. Go 0-4, and you’re officially rebuilding. And any one would’ve made a difference.” (Rocky Top Talk)
