News On The Horizon 11/9/2014's Top 100 players in college hoops for 2014-15--Eye On College Basketball

Listed at 5-11, 166 pounds, Sykes is hardly an imposing presence. But the Green Bay guard is one of the best players in the country, as fast as a locomotive and capable of leaping over tall forwards in a single bound. -- SV

Early signs are positive for Miami Heat--Miami Herald
It’s early — probably too early to tell — but might Erik Spoelstra’s beloved process be paying off?

It sure looked like it, after Sunday’s win over Toronto. Saturday’s win against Philadelphia might be evidence, too.

Then there’s some indisputable testimony: Three games into the season, Miami is averaging 109.3 points per game, second in the league only to Dallas. It is the only team in the East that has yet to record a loss.

Yes, it’s early. But even something that could be relegated further down the line as nothing more than a hot start is important. A 3-0 record to start the season shows progress, especially after a laborious preseason, and more importantly, it shows the Heat’s new lineup can gel successfully.

The key, Spoelstra said Sunday, is balance.

“Everybody was contributing, instead of spectating,” he said.

Every Heat player that stepped onto the court Sunday scored. The same thing happened in Miami’s season opener against Washington, which was also the fourth time in history that the Heat recorded three different 20-point scorers in the same game (Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Norris Cole).

Dwyane Wade finished with 25 points and seven assists, and he noted after the game while talking with point guard Norris Cole that the team only committed eight turnovers.

▪ 1. Perimeter defense: The Suns use three attacking guards in Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas. The Kings might have to adjust their lineup and use Ray McCallum more to deal with the multiple point-guard looks.

The newcomers, senior guard Ryan Bass and freshman guard Darrell Davis, will get a lot of action in this game and throughout the early-season schedule.

“They’re going to be thrown into the fire,” Miller said. “The more they can handle, the better off they are for us.”

5. Green Bay: The Phoenix lose inside-out big man Alec Brown but they do return one of the best point guards in the country in senior Keifer Sykes. Brian Wardle’s team returns four starters, and in junior forward Jordan Fouse they likely have the best defender in the Horizon League. And like three of their four teams ahead of them on this list, Green Bay will have a conference tournament title game loss to use as fuel.
