Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Frank Kaminsky is getting a lot of positive press down in Illinois. I'm excited about his future.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Just need to put this somewhere, but also tip off anyone who might be in Wisconsin.

Kevon Looney, freshman at Milwaukee Hamilton, that would be the class of 2014, seems like the real deal. Tom Diener is at Hamilton these days, so he is in great hands for his development (hopefully his AAU team isn't run by crooks). They play Madison Memorial on Friday night who we all know are a traditional power, but don't seem to have the kind of talent they've been blessed with the past decade. Anyway, it's at 6:35pm on Friday. I won't be able to see it, so hopefully one of you guys clicks over and give a bit of a scouting report on the kid.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Thanks for the heads up... I hope to have something better to do Friday night, but will keep my eye out for Looney in general. I haven't been following prep hoops enough lately.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

My alma mater Whitefish Bay is playing for the D2 title tonight against some school called Merrill. Never heard of them, but they have Paul Jesperson who's committed to Tony Bennett and Virginia.

D1 is De Pere vs. Madison Memorial. No prospects to speak of. Couldn't care less.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

I love going back and reading this thread:

On Jordan Taylor after his freshman year

If I had to guess who the 5th starter will be next year, I guess I'll reluctantly say it will be Taylor and we'll just play with three 6'0'' guys plus Leuer and Nankivil. He's also the kind of guy, sort of like Kammron Taylor, that you just get the feeling he loves playing basketball and will always strive to get better. On off days he'll be playing pickup games in the gym and stuff like that. Might not have the natural talent of [Trevon] Hughes, but he might make more of an impact when he's an upperclassman than Hughes ever has.
So damn right.

I trashed Bruesewitz and the direction of our recruiting, but by December of his freshman year I was already on the Bruiser bandwagon.

And just because I've been harping on this for 4 ****ing years... Keaton Nankivil was given the choice by the staff to redshirt; we don't force redshirts on any player at Wisconsin, but he was behind Butch and Steimsma (the latter who wasn't even getting minutes) and chose not to take the redshirt. He played exactly 45 minutes his freshman year. We could realllllllllllllllly use him next year.

That's not really what we care about for 2012 though, the story is 100% JP Tokoto.
Wrong. So ****ing wrong.

As of right now here are Sam Dekker's national recruiting rankings:

ESPN: 27
Rivals: 35
Scout: #9 SF

Compare to Tokoto:

ESPN: 66
Rivals: 55
Scout: #17 SF

This significant gap between players was about reversed in May. I called Dekker a Jarmusz in 2011! The dude is borderline 5 Stars right now on ESPN. Dave Telep the other day: "Sam Dekker (Sheboygan, Wis./Lutheran) will play a major role for Wisconsin the next few seasons. Over time, he's exactly the type of recruit who can play himself into Big Ten Player of the Year honors and brings the requisite toughness to Madison."

Bo Ryan, I ****ing love you. Enjoy your boy Huckleberry, this is the first time ever I'm glad that we got the white guy.

EDIT: One more

When you have a combination of good traits it helps you become that much more effective in big moments during a contest. Having firsthand experience with the Wisconsin commit, as he was on my team at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in June, he showed some vital traits that Badgers coach Bo Ryan will be pleased to work with. Dekker displayed a strong work ethic at the camp, asking to work out after practice and showing up before the camp started for drills. He displayed incredible toughness during the camp when he had a floating rib but insisted on playing. He said "let's just wrap it up" and not only did he play he rebounded and even took a charge. That's toughness. Plus, his desire to learn the game from whoever is coaching is refreshing and his basketball IQ is quite evident because of it. Dekker is a hard worker who is tough and wants to be a student of the game, which is a nice combination.
Oh, and if I had to bet money on our second recruit for the 2012 class it would probably be Adam Woodbury out of Sioux City, Iowa. Big skilled white center of course.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

I was never high on Tokoto to begin with, but I think Roy can turn him into a valuable role player by the time he is an upperclassmen.

What do you expect out of Wisconsin next year? Big 10 title contenders or what?

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Honestly have no idea. Doesn't look like the Big Ten is great though, so Bo should keep them Top 4 as usual.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Bronson Koenig commits to the Badgers! I thought he was a heavy UNC lean, as in, I didn't think we had a shot in hell at Bronson. HUGE commitment for Bo. Bronson should have the chance to get a ton of minutes from the second he steps on campus, with the only other real point guard in 2013 being George Marshall, who is going to be Taylor's understudy this season.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Looks like we're only going to take Dekker in 2012 unless someone comes out of nowhere (Tokoto decommit? EDIT: Actually he's probably signed by now). Not the worst thing in the world. Koenig signed up for 2013, and it looks like the other guys Bo is looking at in that class are all 6'8'' black kids which is the type of player I've been desperately begging for the past 10 years that we never seem to get (except Marcus Landry).

Other point of note is that Kevon Looney who I mentioned in March, class of 2014, is currently the #14 player nationally in his class according to ESPN. Interest from UW, MU, Iowa, and Georgetown. Hopefully Tobacco Road stays away from this one. As I said 8 months ago, he's at Milwaukee Hamilton which is now coached by former Vincent legend Tom Diener (same family as Travis) who won five titles with them and coached the best Wisconsin High School Team I remember in 2002 Vincent who had a senior class of: Carl Landry, Boo Wade, and Greg Brown (the Mr. Basketball). And then they lost in the first round at State to Dornado's Tosa East. So sad. Anyway, the point is that Looney is in great hands with Diener, and he also has a relationship with Wisconsin, sending us Boo Wade and Marcus Landry. Other former Diener players include Rodney Buford and Diante Garrett (Iowa State).

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

Tomorrow night on ESPN3. I won't be able to watch it live, but I'll try to catch a replay online if ESPN keeps it up. Very curious how Wisconsin is going to overcome the loss of Leuer.

Re: Nimreitz's Wisconsin Basketball Thoughts

I don't have really detailed thoughts after watching Wisconsin's 68-41 win over Colgate tonight.

1) Ben Brust is an assassin from deep. Thrilled with how good he looks.

2) Frank Kaminsky looks like he could be ahead of the curve for UW big men, but then again I've seen a lot of freshmen look good before new year's only to rarely see the court in the second half.

3) George Marshall is redshirting. Normally I want guys to redshirt, but Marshall needs to learn. Even if he doesn't play much I kinda think I'd still rather have him on the active roster especially for garbage time early in the year. No idea who's going to be the starting PG next season, but if Marshall redshirts, I'd say the most likely backcourt next season is Gasser and Brust, which don't get me wrong I like both players, but... I don't know about that.
