The odds were that Kendall Marshall, Harrison Barnes and John Henson would leave school for the NBA, and each of the three underclassmen did. They'll be lottery picks. I don't know why so many think that Marshall will not. A true point guard is tough to come by.
Three NBA seasons from now Marshall will be the best of them, Henson will be second and Barnes will be third.
I don't say this based on Barnes' poor performance last weekend in St. Louis. But he was never the player most of us expected. He might have peaked as a high school senior, or perhaps as a college freshman. He'll be good enough. But he won't be more than that.
They were fun to watch and part of one of the most entertaining teams in college basketball. I wish them well.
