DavidBenAkiva has been doing some great stuff lately. Here’s another example: his solid preview of the Duke-Miami game this weekend. Here’s an excerpt about Miami’s front court:

“Up front, Miami boasts a big but not overly impressive group of post players. The lead F/C is 6’10” JR Sam Waardenburg, who hails from New Zealand. Waardenburg will take a couple of 3-point attempts and hits them at a decent rate. He is 7-20 from 2 on the season (35.0%). He’s more likely to attempt a layup or putback, though. Miami also trots out 7’0” SR Rodney Miller, Jr. and rugged 6’8” SR Keith Stone, a transfer from Florida. Freshman SF Anthony Walker (6’9” 210 lbs.) will also see some time on the floor in the 9-man rotation. The freshmen, Beverly, Walker, and Wong, have all been a net negative when they have been on the court so far this year but give some breathing time to the upperclassmen.”
