    It's nice having a true 1.

    We're dominating the front court. How often does that happen?

    He looks good driving to the bucket... gonna be a good one. I feel like he was an afterthought coming into the season for most fans until Mueller was ruled ineligible and Rankin ended up sitting.

    Wilson is solidifying himself as the starter over Rankin. Has played almost mistakeless on offense and gets to the basket at will, kid plays with a type of streetball swag, has a sick crossover. I love Thompson's athleticism, kid is showing explosiveness we haven't seen in a big man since Collins, the fact that he's 6'11 is amazing.

    Ugly start so far.. Hokies 33% shooting looks not so good, until you look at WC at 0% almost 8 minutes in.

    From what I had read about him, it didn't sound like he was going to be ready yet.

    I would be giving Emelogu/Wilson starter's minutes at this point. They have the bodies and have the most upside IMO.

    Same here... to be honest I had forgotten about him until my preseason refresher a couple weeks before the season started.

    He looks pretty darn good...especially for a true freshman!
