Big Lead Sports put out their 50 Best Players for the 2012-13 season list today, and Louisville is well represented.
33. Peyton Siva, PG, Louisville – Probably my favorite player in college basketball. Needs to play more under control, though. Cardinals are headed back to the Final 4.
22. Chane Behanan, F, Louisville – Reminds me of a young Barkley, minus the perimeter game – tireless rebounder, great hands, undersized, yet undaunted.
18. Gorgui Dieng, C, Louisville – Improved significantly as a sophomore, averaging 9.1 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.2 blocks. Potential 1st team All-American center.
Somewhere Russ Smith is jacking up even more shots in the gym after missing the cut for this list….
