    Are Standhardinger and Harris going to sit out a year like the other German kids before ? Dogus Balbay played well recently at Texas.I like his speed and overview although he seems to be too hectic at times.

    Harris played in Speyer, where there are no pros, so he may play immediately for Gonzaga while Standhardinger and Ehingen is a different story as Ehingen plays with two US born professionals.

    I watched Jeffery Taylor and his Vanderbilt against Kentucky. I can say he did an amazing job on defending NCAA 3rd scorer Jodie Meeks for his time being on the court. He was also able to contribute some on offense, but his defense on Jodie Meeks, who is an amazing scorer btw, really stood out, at least to me.
