The holiday season may be short, but it’s certainly sweet for Kansas University’s basketball players.
Josh Jackson, a 6-7 senior guard from Prolific Prep in Napa, California, who is ranked 1 in the Class of 2016 by Rivals.com, visited Arizona last weekend.

Jeremy Hemsley had a chance to blow the roof off Viejas Arena. But he missed a high-percentage layup.
