Day 2 Thoughts

Ray McCallum -- I got reprimanded by one scout for saying that McCallum was a solid shooter early in the day. I was reminded that he shot just 24% from 3 last year. But I responded that his form looked good here. He made me look good knocking down 5 three pointers in the night session. He was credited for 3/4 for 3 and 22 pts, 7 ast, 2 to, but had 3 in the first half and 2 in the second half (either he was on the line on two of them or the scorekeepers made an error). He's supposedly been putting in a lot of work putting up 1000 shots per day and the results are apparent. He won the point guard battle with Nate Wolters in day one and absolutely destroyed Peyton Siva and Ryan Boatright (2-13 fg) in the night session on Saturday. McCallum's father Ray Sr. is on hand to watch his son and Junior is making him proud. He's also making a case as one of the premiere PGs not only in camp but potentially available for this year's draft. He'll need to show that this shooting performance was no fluke and that he can bring his shooting numbers up considerably next year, however.
