Catching up! Highlights from the weekend and Monday, 11/20/17

Busy past few days, I’ve been keeping an eye on all the games but just haven’t had time to throw up clips and/or comments.  Better late than never!

First of all… let’s get this one out of hte way.  Robert Williams destroyed this man tonight.  Can you say #DunkOfTheYear candidate?

 

I loved these two blocks from Xavier Tillman the other night as well.  Michigan State is much more than just the Miles Bridges show.

 

Although…

 

This step-back the other night brought back memories of Kemba Walker.  Just filthy.

 

And something about this dunk from New Mexico State’s Sidy N’dir got me feeling some kind of way.  The pull back on it is just perfect.  #DunkOfTheYear

 

 

Breaking up the dunk monotony… This kid Chris Clemons is a joy to watch, if you get the chance.

And my adopted favorite squad out in the desert can really fill it up from deep.  I mean DEEP.

 

This is by far one of the best weeks of the college basketball season.  We’ve got about 50 tournaments taking place with games on at all hours of the day featuring a wide range of strange and intriguing matchups.  I want to get more into just writing about the season and not solely sharing my favorite highlights, and this might serve as a good week to jump into that as the landscape becomes a little clearer with all these games on the schedule.  Not sure though.

Can only promise I’m going to enjoy watching and taking it all in.

Tuesday Highlights – 11/14/17

Champions Classic is living up to the hype through a game and a half.  He’s not going to win many popularity contests, but Grayson Allen may wind up being the key to Duke’s national title hopes after all.  Even without Bagley for most of the night they still looked damn impressive against a very good Spartan squad.  I don’t know how you’re supposed to guard them if the outside shots are falling.  Seems like maybe you just can’t.

 

Anyways, on to the few highlights we found tonight.  Starting with our first Villanova sighting of the year.

 

And we’ll keep it in the tri-state area with a Rutgers.. yes, RUTGERS highlight.  Corey Sanders is one of the most underrated players in the country, you should absolutely check him out if you get the chance this season.  Beautiful pass and finish here.

 

Meanwhile, at the late game in Chicago, Hamidou Diallo with the steal and the aggressive slam.  He’s going to dunk about 200 times this year I think, and I might post every single one of them here.

 

Some good ones tomorrow…

Mini Big East vs B10 challenge with Creighton @ Northwestern & Butler @ Maryland.  Also have Bucknell @ UNC, and I’m curious to see how Indiana fares at Seton Hall after the start both those teams have had.
