Iman Shumpert on All-Evan Turner BFF team

By Paul M. Banks

As I’ve pointed out before, National Player of the Year Evan Turner is like the Hillary Clinton of college basketball: quite a polarizing figure. Fans of teams eliminated by Turner’s Ohio State Buckeyes HATE him. And as the tournament rolls on, this bandwagon will indeed pick up more steam.

But on the other side, he’s also Mr. Popularity. He told me after the Big Ten Tournament Michigan buzzer beater, he had 150 text messages waiting for him when he got back to the locker room. And of his many close friends, a few are college hoops stars.

In the past I profiled (click where highlighted to read more about Turner’s friendship with each player) Illinois Demetri McCamey, and Penn State’s Talor Battle. This week we add Georgia Tech’s native of Oak Park, IL Iman Shumpert. And if you had Turner himself to this team, we’ll just need a fifth to round out the All-Turner BFF team.

2010 NBA Draft Stock Report

Wisconsin Michigan St Basketball

Every week The Sports Bank’s resident NBA Draft and college basketball nerd, David Kay takes a look at whose draft stock is on the rise and whose is falling.  You can check out full player prospects here and David’s 2010 NBA Mock Draft here.

BUY:
Trevon Hughes, PG, Wisconsin, Sr.

Living in Wisconsin and following Hughes since he first arrived at Wisconsin, I have seen flashes where I think he can be a legit back-up NBA point guard and plenty of times where he has added to the gray hairs on Bo Ryan’s head.  So far this season, Hughes has been phenomenal for the Badgers.  He received praise from Coach K in Wisconsin’s win against Duke when Hughes scored 26 points and hit some big shots late in the shot clock.  He then dropped 27 in a loss at UWGB and has shown the ability to hit outside shots, attack the basket, and gets after it on D’.  If he keeps performing at his current level of play, he has a real chance of being a second round pick.
