    The third team would beat the second team

  • Hoosier Hall

    I still think they should hold a college all star game just for kicks. Nice to see that Yogi will get to display his shooting prowess at the State Farm 3pt shootout.

  • Ole Man

    I still think Ulis is overrated and nothing more than a backup in the NBA. Also known as a wasted draft pick as a number one.
    He played against really soft competition and was basically a ball hog on a really bad team.

  • inLinE6

    Don’t think UK was that bad. They would’ve made to the S16 were it not playing against us. Overrated? Maybe. Swap with Yogi and make him a 3rd team All-American, and I’m fine with it.

  • Ole Man

    They stunk.

  • INUnivHoosier

    I would take Yogi over Ulis any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

  • Kwang

    Haw! You got that right, Hoosierkamp!

  • Piker

    Just like Alex said another honor for Yogi. A lucky NBA team will pick him up. He will out work anyone to get better. If he develops that step back jumper all over the floor and can connect at a 40 pct or better clip he will find a home. Just clear out for Yogi and who could stop him, very few. Defense he will just deny his guy the ball. If the guys is lucky enough to get it Yogi has already proven to me he can stop bigger guys.

    He’d fit in pretty well with Golden State.

  • TomJameson

    I agree that Ulis is overrated. And if UK played in the B1G, they may have just been NIT bound. Okay, maybe the NCAA, but probably as a 9 seed or so.

  • HoosierDawg

    EVERY honor that comes Yogi’s way is so well deserved.

    Who is Greg Wiltjer?
