NBA Draft

Jodie Meeks gave one of the best performances I have ever seen last night, helping Kentucky get the upset at Tennessee. 54 points, 1o-15 from three point land, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. He was 14-14 from the foul line. All of this resulted in an offensive rating of 209. 209 points per hundred possessions... that's mind-numbing. In other words, Meeks could have stood under the basket making layups all night and been less efficient. Crazy stuff.

Also, take a peek at DraftExpress every once in a while. They do a pretty good job with player profiles and mock drafts on that site, which is important information when it comes to whether Luke Harangody will stay for his senior year.

All indications are good for another season of 'Gody. Luke is the 20th ranked junior on the site and an early second round pick in 2010. He is projected to be a 2nd round pick or undrafted this season on ESPN. The lack of respect this year and his family's support of his education makes it seem all but certain that Harangody will be a four year guy.
