    Wes Eikmeier= Stephen Curry lite?

    Wes and Stephen's games are mirror images of each other, IMO. They are both great shooters, who use the fear of their shot to get dribble penetration. They're the same height, and close to the same weight, and they both get their teammates involved.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier= Stephen Curry lite?

    That may be taking it a little far based on 1.5 games, but I hope you're right!

    He's certainly looked good so far though.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier= Stephen Curry lite?

    IMO, he's the biggest surprise of the season so far. Much like the other Wesley was two years ago. This team still has a long ways to go. I hope they can settle on a rotation of about 8 or 9 guys. Does anyone know if it's too late to redshirt DB and/or Clinton Mann?

    I'm curious to see what happens later between UC-Davis and Wisc-Milw.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier= Stephen Curry lite?

    What I love about Wes, besides his obvious shooting stroke, is that he's a gym rat. He has a very high basketball IQ. You can tell already he has those intangebles - confidence, court awareness, anticipation, knowing when and where to spot up and wait for the pass, etc.

    I know it's very very early, and I know the opponents haven't been very good, but I can tell already that he's going to be a big part of the future.

    Brackens, Thompson, JVB, and Hamilton better be extra nice to Wes because when he's on the court, it will open up all kinds of space down low.

    Re: Wes Eikmeier= Stephen Curry lite?

    So he's somewhere between John Neal and Stephen Curry.

    Let's narrow that done a little. I'll say somewhere between a young Jake Sullivan and Stephen Curry.

    More athletic than John Neal, that's for sure!

    He's got a chance to be something special. I hope HB likes players from Nebraska:)

    Re: Wes Eikmeier= Stephen Curry lite?

    Wes Eikmeier reminds me of Kirk Hinrich. A slightly smaller version.

    Should we have redshirted Wes?

    I posted several messages indicating that I am hopeful about Wes. Each time, several people would mention that they didn't think he would do anything until his junior or senior years, that we should redshirt him, etc. From the early signs, it looks like I was right.
