In his latest "Inside Dish" column, Mike DeCourcy writes:

If you believe all the reasons to watch Arizona State departed the day All-American PF Ike Diogu entered the NBA draft, the Sun Devils have a surprise for you: PG Antwi Atuahene. There aren't many true recruiting steals anymore, but Atuahene came from Trinity Valley Community College with three years of eligibility, a powerful body and a sophisticated game that might remind some of former Syracuse star Pearl Washington's. "This guy brings everybody's level up," ASU assistant Tony Benford says. . . .

He hasn't been putting up particularly impressive numbers, but has he been playing as well as the above would suggest? Can he be a Pac-10 impact player? In other words, is there actual hope for ASU this year?

OK, that last question was just rhetorical ...

As with the positive ink about most ASU basketball players, I'm going to be skeptical that this guy could even play in the Pac-10.

But if Atuahene can even replace half of Diogu's per-game averages last season, you really have to wonder if Arizona shouldn't look into the top JUCO big man for next season.
