  • Adebayo may go higher than draft experts predict

    By LARRY VAUGHT

    Brandon Clifford thinks his former high school star, Bam Adebayo, will go higher in the NBA draft than some expect based on what information he’s received.

    “I have spoken to quite a few (NBA) teams as they gather information. A lot of teams out there really like him,” Clifford said. “I will take their word over draft gurus any day. I know he is looking forward to playing at that next level and believes he can play well.”

    Before Adebayo got to Kentucky, Clifford talked about his strength and explosiveness around the basket. He called him a “rebounding machine” and thinks Adebayo will show more of his total game in the NBA much like former Cats Anthony Davis and Karl Anthony-Towns have.

    “With the type of team Kentucky had, he did his role. He listened to Cal (John Calipari) and did what he was asked to do. He can do a lot more away from the basket and off the bounce. Coach (Calipari) alluded to that several times during the season that Bam could do more but with the team he had, Bam was doing what the team needed. Bam helped put them in position to win games and did his job with no complaints.

    “Now he’ll have a chance to show the other side of things in the NBA. Bam is a different kind of guy. Last year his job was to help Kentucky win basketball games. Now his job will be to be a professional basketball player."

    There's a couple of head-scratchers right off the bat. S. Carolina is +6 at NC St. for example, which looks like a toss up to me. Some others:

    Well, after last year's contest that is better than it could have been for sure.

    Point spreads are out! UK is currently -10.5 at S. Miss. I thought it would be right around 14.
