    Mike, you are one hard working SOB. Thanks for the report. Couple of good nuggets in there, and cool to hear CTC's take.

    CTC said he thought it would take 10 three pointers to win the game. With 30 seconds left in regulation, UVA was sitting on 9, and TT had 7. Hunter's late three to tie the game was UVA's 10th. And they went on to win in OT.

    Hunter is tough to figure. He might be the clumsiest college basketball player in America when he attempts to drive to the basket. How many players have dribbled the ball off their own knee twice in the same game ? let alone a national title game. Then he makes excellent defensive plays and clutch baskets, go figure.

    I think he would be a great pickup if the Hawks do get the Mavs 1st round pick. He would be good to pair with Trae. Hunter exceeds off the ball on offense and is an above average defender. Looks like a future solid pro player. Not a super star but could be a good number 2.

    efreeman. I posted my thinking maybe 2 months back that Hunter would be good at 6. I'm not so sure now. I love his length and most of his defense, he can also shoot when he's on. He REALLY has clumsy feet though. I'm not sure if he can make his offense work in The NBA.
