Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: Anthony Davis Misses Olympic Cut Edition

Linkapalooza banner

Yes, it's true, Anthony Davis missed the cut for the Olympic team, but will be an alternate:


Anthony Davis -- age 19 -- New Orleans Hornets: The 2012 NBA Draft's No. 1 pick sprained his ankle just before Team USA minicamp opened, putting his availability into question for the next few weeks. On Friday, Team USA chairman Jerry Colangelo questioned whether he had the "physicality" to compete at the moment. As the most promising young big man since Dwight Howard, Davis figures to be a Team USA regular for the next decade.

So there we go. Davis' physicality is definitely a valid question as of now, although he did a great job of faking it for Kentucky. It's hard to fake it with NBA professionals, though.

Auburn’s Tony Barbee: delusional or prophetic? // CollegeBasketballTalk

Almost nobody, that is. Tony Barbee, the Rick Pitino disciple who took over at Auburn two years ago, has endured more than his fair share of hardship at the BCS level, but he’s still spittin’ fire about his team’s chances in the stacked SEC next season.

And all this time I thought Barbee, a former player at UMass, was a Coach Cal disciple. Who knew it was really Rick Pitino all along?
