Hoyas Draft Primer after La Jumpa:
In case you missed it from earlier (and lord knows you have because you were focused on irrelevant health care nonsense), here is a draft primer which offers some clues as to when we can expect to hear Henry Sims and Hollis Thompson called tonight:
Henry Sims. Henry seems like the more likely pick than Hollis: teams often are willing to invest second-round picks on developing big men, even instead of proven shooters. That Sims is skilled only adds to his marketability. Of course, some scouts cast a skeptical eye on Sims' unproductive first three years. While he will have to demonstrate his commitment to the game while continuing to develop strength to rebound and defend at an NBA level, his size, intelligent play, and versatile skills should land him a spot in the draft.
