Archie on Race Thompson: "He's about the right things. He's a winning player. He helps you win."

Race is the exact type of player Coach Knight recruited....

BTN has the Iowa/IU game on "B1G Basketball in 60" right now. I said this over in the recruiting thread, but Devonte played a good game on the defensive end too. He shut Toussaint and Evelyn down...

Green is a really good defensive player, for him it’s all about his mental approach on both ends of the floor

I actually agree 100% when he’s engaged and has his mind set to give full effort he’s a great on ball defender

You could also see him "rein it in" at times. He passed up some contested shots he's taken in other games. He did a good job going with the flow on the offensive end.

His alley-oop passes need work though...

Well from my past experience if you base all of your big decision based solely on money it usually doesn't work out.  Why can't he be a 1st rounder next year because he could work on more things and make him a better draft candidate, 

Depends on depth of the draft also

Question...I wonder if Garza runs in a sand box in the summer. Kids in great shape.

More than that.

Luka Garza pushed himself so hard last summer that no one can push him around this winter.

A trip to Bosnia wasn’t about admiring the Alps and visiting family. It involved renting out a gym, working out three times each day, getting into a defensive stance with a brick in each hand and sliding back and forth through the lane until he sometimes vomited.

In August, it was 10 days in Vallejo, California, which offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Garza was in the gym three times a day there, working out with his grandfather and his father, expanding his offensive repertoire.

“If you weren’t throwing up, you weren’t working hard enough,” Frank Garza said. “You have to go to depths of conditioning. You have to teach your body to go beyond.”

Like I said I am different because I am not going to make that decision based on money because it does not run my life.  If your family is destitute and really need the money I can see it.  IT was like that and he left but he was top 3 pick and has said many times if it weren't for the money he would have stayed because he loved college.  Again I know I am different and I would not want to give up any of my years getting to play college basketball and the chance to play in the tournament.  You only get so much time to do that so it is not worth it to me to give it up.  I know you can't understand my thinking and that is fine with me.

You’ve never had the opportunity to opt in for millions of dollars so your “I’m different I don’t care about money” schtick rings extremely hollow.
