NWSB Insider and northwest basketball blogger Blair Thomas tells us about two young men leading Kentucky to the 2012 Final four this week in New Orleans. Kyle Wiltjer entered the season as part of one of Kentucky’s most heralded basketball classes with guard Marquis Teague and forwards Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Anthony Davis. Terrence Jones has averaged 15.7 points and 8.8 rebounds per game and started 35 of 38 games.
The Washington Huskies mens basketball team might be on the outside looking in from the NIT as will Tony Wroten and Terrence Ross, but Steve Lee tells us there’s still a bevy of northwest basketball talent to watch during March Madness. These five will have a huge impact as to their team’s success. Nik Cochran, Rob Sacre, Terrence Jones, Kyle Wiltjer, and Peyton Siva.
