Not Joey Crawford the ref (although that could be hella advantageous), but a guard out of the University of Kentucky, who sported 17.9/3.6/2.1 numbers during his senior season.  I'm not much on lying to our loyal readers, meaning I won't pretend to know a ton about Crawford.  If anyone can put me in touch with Ashley Judd, that would be a huge help.  But in the meantime, as I try to learn more of the lad's game, I can provide y'all with a few scouting/pundit takes.
