*First and foremost, we want to send our thoughts and prayers to Luke Hancock and his family. Luke’s dad, Bill, lost his battle with cancer and passed away on Monday. Bill was able to make the trip to the Big East Tournament as well as the Final Four in Atlanta. Here is a photo of the Hancock family in Atlanta.
This year’s NBA Draft is Thursday June 27! Here is a look at some of the mock drafts! Some of the sites did not have a 2nd round of picks, so that is hopefully why you don’t see Peyton Siva on all of them. I have said it before, I believe he has worked his way into the 2nd round of this year’s draft!
Here are some updated NBA Mock Drafts. The Draft will be on Thursday June 27. Gorgui Dieng has been projected as a 1st round pick for quite a while, and now Peyton Siva is starting to see his name on some of the draft boards as well!
Here are some updated NBA Mock Drafts. One of them has Gorgui going as high as 12th! Another also has him going to the Bucks, which reminds me of watching the draft a few years ago with my cousin Conley. He is a UK fan, and was watching for Jodie Meeks, and he said “Please don’t get drafted to Milwaukee or Toronto. No one ever hears of players again when they go there!” That is a pretty accurate statement! Meeks did get drafted to Milwaukee that night, but of course he has now made his way to Los Angeles, so anything can happen.
This year’s NBA Draft is Thursday June 27.
The 2013 NBA Draft will be on Thursday June 27. So yes that it almost 2 months away, and things can change in the draft order depending on how guys work out for teams, and what certain teams need. But here are some updated mock drafts since the deadline has now passed for early entries into the field.
Jason King, an ESPN.com writer, has released a preseason Top 25 poll for the 2013-14 college basketball season. He will release another one during the summer, and there will be plenty of other preseason polls to go around. But for now, he has the Cards ranked 2nd heading into next year. Here is what he had to say about the Cards…

Louisville vs Duke. Pitino vs Krzykewski. A Final Four berth on the line. It doesn’t get much better than this! On Sunday around 5:05 pm, the Cards and Blue Devils will tip-off in Indianapolis, with the winner moving on to Atlanta in the Final Four. Back on November 21 of this season, these teams met in the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas, with Duke winning 76-71. Duke pretty much has the same team and plays the same way. The Cards are certainly a different team.

WOW! Well that was an exciting game, to say the least. In the first half, it looked like Syracuse could not miss a shot. They even banked in a 3! Even when we got down 16, I wasn’t worried. However, I did think “Well, it is just destiny for Syracuse to win this last game.” But still, I know what kind of team we have. We go on 6-0 and 8-0 runs all the time. It would just take one of those to get some momentum back and make it a game again, and that’s what happened. This team never quit, they never do at all. So I never quit believing in them, ever.

Now that we are into February, it is about time this Louisville basketball team turns things up a notch. We had 1 bad week, a stretch of 3 games. Well, those games were back in January. I said it then and I will say it again. If we are in Atlanta playing in the Final 4, we will look back at that week and just laugh, because people thought it was the end of the world for some reason. It was just a tough stretch.
