5 names to remember

Sometimes, as I am attending a game to see a particular player, I can’t help but be impressed with someone else. Often it happens that it is the teammate or opponent of the player I am there to see or one playing in the game prior. Sometimes they pop up again later.

Such was the case of Desmond Allison and Gerald Fitch, players I saw long before they were on Kentucky’s radar.

M yles Davis is one such player. Only currently ranked at two stars on Scout.com’s rankings, this 6-foot-1 shooting guard has been consistently lighting it up, dropping 20-28 points on his opponents each and every game, dishing assists and picking off passes. He is a 2011 player that should earn at least a 3-star ranking after this tournament. Kansas, Louisville and Memphis are well aware of him.

Kori Babineaux, 6-foot-1 shooting guard from Folsom, CA is a player I have never heard of but one I will remember. Like Davis can really light it up inside and out. Currently only a single star rating from Scout (which only means no data available) but I saw him drop in more than 20 on 2 occasions against good competition. Expect coaches to take notice of him shortly.

Walter Pitchford 6-foot-8 PF from Michigan. I mentioned him two days ago as an off-the-radar impressive guy. Since he played on Dominique Ferguson’s team I saw him a lot and was impressed each time. Pitchford is going to make some college team a very good power forward.

LaQuinton Ross, a Mississippi SF, does not appear to be on UK’s radar for the 2011 class. He plays for the MBA Elite out of Jackson and had a terrific Reebok Tournament. I saw him drop 26 on the NY Panthers, scoring from everywhere on the floor. He looks much taller than his 6-foot-7 listing on Scout. I am guessing he had a growth spurt.

Deuce Bello: 6-3 SG teammate of Quincy Miller. UK not listed as a suitor but if he keeps playing like he did in Vegas, Bello is going to have them lining up in bunches. One potential weakness is that he seems to be a SF in a SG body and doesn’t quite have the size to pull it off; but he can really play.
