Those who don't appreciate him will find out in a hurry next year when he is not around. I hope he doesn't go to the NBA, but I believe he will - 90% chance. What I worry about the most about OSU, is their 3 pt. shooting. It was the difference in the game yesterday, and is the difference in every game they lose. The 3 pt. shot is the biggest game changer in basketball. Craft is a beast. You can criticize his outside shooting, but every coach in the country would love to have him.
Sullinger seems to have a spark as of late. I can see why sometimes he gets down. Payne from MSU is shoving him all over the court and not getting calls.
I really think the refs target the bigger player. Look at Craft barreling into Green and not getting a call. If that would have been Sullinger he probably would have been tossed.lol
Sullinger probably will go to the NBA. I would. Make your millions before getting hurt. He won't have the frustration of reffing in the NBA.
If Craft would develope into a threat shooting 3's he would be drafted in the NBA. He has to have mabey the quickest feet in college basketball.
Agree about the 3pt shooting. Its terrible this year. Bufford's stock has to have plummeted this year. Some games he's non existent and that just can't happen.
