With a name like John Wall, you have to be good

Welcome to Division 1 Men\’s College Basketball John Wall. In his first collegiate start, G John Wall of Kentucky\’s stat line was as follows: 38 min, 19 pts,  2 rbds, 5 asts, 3 stls. Oh yeah, and in a tie game with 6 seconds left, brought the ball up the court and hit a game-winning 15 foot jump shot. All the attention he got as the #1 PG coming out of high school was apparently warranted. He is an immediate impact player who will get tons of minutes and have the opportunity to learn and grow at the highest level in a prestigious program. I don\’t want to get ahead of myself, because Kentucky barely beat Miami of Ohio, clearly not an elite team, but if he continues to be a clutch scorer and secure ball handler, this Kentucky team could make a deep run come March. John Calipari has to be pretty happy he decided to take the job in Lexington.
