Full Court Pressed


Don’t let him pull that move, don’t let him pull that move! That’s the move! Oh that’s the move!

Welcome back to another edition of Full Court Pressed. Your one-stop shop for all things hoops related. All levels of the game are at full swing, so let’s talk a look around and see what’s going on.


The Association




  • A coaching change hasn’t slowed down the Lakers circus one bit. Steve Nash is still hurt (crazy for someone his age, right?), Pau Gasol looks lost, and the team is battling extreme inconsistency. After losing to the Magic (!) at home, Kobe took the time to threaten all of his teammates while reminding everyone how much harder he works than them.


College Basketball




  • The latest Coaches and AP Polls are out, and Indiana and Duke appear to be a notch above everyone else. I still think this is one of the weakest years we’ve seen in college basketball, and come March almost anyone has a shot to win it all.
  • The University of Kentucky experienced two things this past week that have never happened under John Calipari: They lost at home and fell out of the AP poll. There’s still plenty of time for this talented group to put it together, but they have a lot to fix. Calipari has to adjust as well, as he doesn’t appear to have a player capable of playing point guard the way his system demands.
  • Last week, the ACC voted to add the University of Louisville. The move, along with the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse, likely puts the ACC back on top of the college world. At least until someone else defects and more realignment hell breaks loose.


High School Recruiting




  • Karl Towns will announce his college choice tomorrow (December 4th). The 6’10” 2015 (possible 2014) prospect from the Dominican Republic is choosing between Kentucky, Duke and Florida. John Calipari (who coached Towns on the Dominican national team this past summer) and Kentucky are thought to be the leader. (Update: Towns announced this morning that he will be going to Kentucky and will reclassify to the 2014 class)
