Kansas’ Andrew White III student of game

Kansas newcomer Andrew White.

Kansas newcomer Andrew White.

A student of the game of basketball, particularly the art of shooting, Kansas University freshman guard Andrew White III regularly pores over film of NBA greats Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki and Reggie Miller.

The CliffsNotes version of what the 6-foot-6, 210-pounder from Richmond, Va., has picked up on tape:

“Reggie was a cold killer. His mentality, cockiness. He knew he was a good shooter. That’s a lot of what made him a great player,” White said of the former Indiana Pacers phenom.

“I like the follow-through Dirk has,” White added of the Dallas Mavericks’ sensation.

“What I see in Kobe the most ... he knows how to create separation just with his body, his shoulder movement,” he noted of the Lakers’ star. “Ray Allen (Miami Heat) gets his feet set and parallel quick. He gets his shot off quick. There’s a lot I take from everybody. I’m always looking at shooters specifically to see what they are doing well.”

White, who has cashed two of five three-pointers while playing sparingly in four of KU’s first six games, believes he knows exactly what it will take to start to earn meaningful minutes and perhaps someday have a career that rivals his favorites.

“What we are going to do in the next hour ... that’s the best way to get through to coach (Bill Self). You’ve got to compete,” White said, speaking right before Wednesday’s practice. “With coach, if you are confident, working hard, defending, rebounding, keeping a competitive edge, that’s what will get you on the court. At this level, it’s not about shooting or defending, it’s about how much a coach trusts you on both ends of the court.”

White, who acknowledged he is a patient person, has found a way to energize himself. Instead of complaining about the four minutes of playing time he received in KU’s last game against San Jose State, he savors each and every second of that stint.

“I get out there and play as hard as I can for that minute, two minutes. I enjoy being out there just for the time I am. That’s my motivation to push for more minutes,” White said. “I know I shoot the ball well. I know defense is something you have to do to stay on the court. I think I’m a good rebounder. I think my defense is coming along. We have a talented group with a lot of guys older than me. There are a lot of things I can do better. Coach wants to see the best out of all of us.”

White, who averaged 23 points and 10 rebounds a game last season at Miller School in Charlottesville, Va., said it took him awhile to adjust to the speed of the college game.

“You’ve got to make decisions on the fly,” he said. “That’s a big part of the game, being able to react quickly.”

Self said he has high hopes for White, who against SJSU was 0-for-1 from the field, 1-for-2 from the free-throw line and had a steal.

“What he does best now is shoot it,” Self said. “I’m OK with that. Taking care of the ball, understanding a little bit more what we’re doing ... Andrew is going to be a good player. He reminds me a lot of Conner (Teahan). It’s going to take him a little bit of time to get comfortable. He only played four minutes the other day. I thought he actually did well in the four minutes he was out there.”

Elijah’s OK: Self said senior Elijah Johnson, who had some knee swelling after the Nov. 20 game against Saint Louis, should be ready for Friday’s game against Oregon State (7 p.m., Sprint Center).

“He should be fine moving forward,” Self said, noting Johnson has to get to the free-throw line more. He has made six of seven all season. “I learned a long time ago, if you are out there, you have to perform. There’s nothing structurally going on with him, so if he doesn’t have quite the same pop he had before, then he shouldn’t be out there because if you are out there, we expect it. That’s the way it is with any athlete. I learned that from Keith Langford’s mother back when Keith played. I kept saying, ‘But his knee is bothering him.’ She said, “Whoa, whoa, whoa ... if he’s out there he’s got to produce or he shouldn’t be out there.’” That is the reality of it. He’s got to produce.”

Shuffling: Self commented on realignment in the wake of Wednesday’s announcement that Louisville had joined the ACC.

“It’s amazing to me the movement that could potentially occur in the immediate future,” Self said. “Everybody thought it was pretty much status quo, and there’s one guy working it behind the scenes that’s really good that has now changed the whole landscape of what’s going on, and that’s (Big Ten commissioner) Jim Delany. With what he’s done with the Big Ten (adding Rutgers, Maryland), it’s now caused a trickle down.

“The SEC is going to poach somebody now,” Self said. “They’re going to go to 16. The ACC is going to have 16. But, the SEC may poach the ACC, so now that’s going to screw that number up. So where are we on this stuff? I sure Mr. Bowlsby (Bob, Big 12 commissioner) and the presidents are in discussion about at least procedurally what would be our next move? ... We are going to stay at 10, which is the perfect number, but going forward is that really reasonable to be at 10 when everybody else is gonna go (16)?”

Self said he thought the Big 12 was solid.

“With the situation with the SEC and the Big 12 in football, the alliance, the new television deal, I mean, we are in great shape. I don’t feel like there’s any need to rush to do anything.”

“I do think there should be talks in case, a contingency plan. Who knows where that will go moving forward?”

Volleyball: Self applauded the efforts of KU’s NCAA-bound volleyball team at his weekly news conference. Of the fact his basketball team plays Oregon State at 7 p.m. Friday in Kansas City, Mo., and the volleyball team plays at 6:30 p.m. Friday against Cleveland State in Allen Fieldhouse, Self said: “I said last night (on his radio show), I don’t want our fans not to come to the Sprint Center to go support volleyball. If they have basketball tickets, come to basketball. Go to see Ray (Bechard, volleyball coach) the next day (Saturday in second round if KU wins Friday). But if you’re not planning on going to the basketball game, then go watch Ray and his team because they are fun to watch.”

Famous coach: Oregon State is coached by Craig Robinson, brother-in-law of President Barack Obama. Robinson played for the Princeton team that knocked Self’s Oklahoma State team out of the 1983 NCAA Tournament in the first round.

Mark my words: AWIII will hit some big time shots for the Jbirds if he can just get on the floor. IMO Self knows this & is wanting it to happen much sooner than later. I'd like to see him spell Travis & BMac both more often, & not necessarily when Tharpe is on the floor. If anyone at all gets attention on D, then White can flat out light it up.Nadir is so small defenses can put a lesser defender on him. Especially when on the floor the same time as EJ.

Wow, guys. All Bill Self said was that AW3 reminds him of Connor because "what he does best now is shoot it." Self used to talk about how great of a shooter he thought Connor was, so it makes sense for him to compare them based on how well they shoot the ball. And it took Connor a long time to feel comfortable on the court at KU. Again, Self compared that aspect of Teahen to AW3. I don't think Self was implying that AW3 will never be more skilled or has no higher ceiling than Teahen.

Clearly, expectations are much higher for AW3 than they were for Teahen. Even Bill Self would agree with that. But when it comes to shooting the ball and taking time to get comfortable in Self's system, the two are comparable. Not exact replicas. Not the same ceiling. Just similar in those two aspects.

Reading comprehension, anyone?

Let's first dispel this myth that Conner Teahan was a good three point shooter. He wasn't. He was not good. The only reason folks viewed him as a shooter, was because he offered no other real skill. And he could apparently hit some in practice.

Teahan's career three point field goal % was 34.3%.That is reality. Five years in the program. He shot 12 for 20 his freshmans season in pure mop up time. After that, he shot 31.4%.

Most generally thought Taylor was a poor three point shooter .. he ended at 37%.

jb asked above: "what has AW3 done on the floor to distinguish himself as a freshman so far, that Conner did not do as a freshman, also?"

I would suggest that AW3 went to Europe and scored 10, 16, 3, and 15 points on the trip. His first times on the floor as a Jayhawk. In games that weren't pushovers. When he actually got consistent minutes, he proved it. Can't prove it without consistent minutes.

From the "eye test", AW3 is a better shooter than Teahan. Bank on that. I mean, take it to bank, wager on it, bet you house on it .. his stroke is a thing of beauty. The kid just needs consistent minutes to display his offensive talents. He'll earn it.

White has the talent, ability, size, and skill .. the tools .. to develop into an NBA player. Teahan?

I will say this with complete certainty .. any objective comparison to Teahan is pure insanity.

*Please note my complete gratitude for Teahan's three vs. Purdue, and his contributions to our title game run in 2011-12.

Andrew White III

4 star Rivals recruit

51st ranked player in Class of 2011

12th ranked SF in Class of 2011

Offers from: Kansas, Texas, Georgetown, Louisville, Tennessee, Maryland, N.C. State, Florida State, West Virginia, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, Cincinnati, Alabama, George Mason, Richmond

Conner Teahan

2 star Rivals recruit (in FOOTBALL - no stars in basketball)

Not ranked in his class (so clearly outside the top 150)

Obviously not ranked at his position (SG)

Offers from: Wichita State

Can we please put to rest the idea that Teahan and White are similar in ANY WAY except for the fact that they both had a large disparity between their own ability to shoot (very good) and ability to defend (not very good).

Who knows why Self says what he does, but if you gave him some truth serum, I doubt he would say that he genuinely views the two players as similar, unless he was talking about 5th-year senior Teahan vs. freshman White, III.

How long did he go to school in Charlottesville? Off topic, but my oldest brother raised his family, retired, then passed away there 4 years ago. Beautiful, historic country. Gene is buried a couple of miles from vineyards that were owned by the Thomas Jefferson family for generations. He was retired Navy, CIA, & Defense Dept guy. Sent 2 kids to UVA, 1 William & Mary, & 1 ODU. The kids were born & lived literally all over the world, but 3 are still in Va, & the other in SC.That speaks volumes for that area if you've never been there before. Is absolutely georgeous; not far from the sea or the mountains. Been there several times & fell in love with the place when we visited.

AW3 6'6 210lbs with a 6' 11 wingspan might defend different from what we are used to, that might be why he lead us in steals in Europe and got a steal the other night in limited minutes, but I agree that he must concentrate as much on his defense as offense to play for Bill Self. But his length in passing lanes forces turnovers which isn't a bad thing.

Andrew White III was recruited by over 15 D-1 Colleges, Conner Teahan was a mid-major prospect at best. He had some nice moments at KU and they are greatly appreciated. Andrew White is a talented young man that was recruited to KU. The young man can play. He should not be compared to Conner Teahan. Alabama, Virginia Tech, Louisville, N.C. State, Maryland, Georgetown, and Wake Forest recruited Andrew White III and he was rated 4 stars. Again, further proof, this young man can play.

Andrew White III has a great shooting stroke, a ton of athletic ability and is a student of the game. Andrew White III may play a lot of minutes this year, or he may receive the Cole Aldrich treatment, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. He may come on toward the end of the year, when given the opportunity, like Cole did. I think he will prove to be the type of 3 point assassin this team needs. Just not exactly sure when this will happen?

Why are there people thinking White is going to transfer? The only chance of Andrew White transferring from KU would be if KU by some miracle landed Andrew Wiggins, and even then I doubt White leaves. Andrew White was the 51st ranked player in his class. At place like KU, it's a toss up as to whether or not someone in that neighborhood makes an impact as a freshman at KU. Darnell Jackson (54) and Markieff Morris (49) are the only two other players in the same neighborhood as White and one played a lot as a freshman and one did not. Bill Self will get Andrew White's defense up to par and when that happens, White will see his minutes go way up. Assuming BMac goes pro after this year, the 2/3 rotation for KU is likely Seldon, Greene, and White which means there are minutes available next year as a starter or the back up for that rotation spot. Andrew White will end up being a decent player for KU, think along the lines of Travis Releford, not a star but a good college player that can contribute. Basically someone who will play to his ranking like Releford has.

Sounds like AW3 is patient and mature enough to realize that he's got a lot of developing to do before he gets meaningful minutes. He will get there. And when he does KU will have a sharp-shooting stud at the 2 spot. Good to see his head is in the right place.

lawerencejayhawk 1 year, 4 months ago

If AW3 can shoot 40 to 50 percent from 3 and rebound. No double team on Withey BMac gets to the basket (highlight) Perry and Jamari can operate down low. Releford shoots without a hand in his face. EJ and Naadir can create 3 point mid range or get to the basket. Best coach plus spacing for great players equal great tournament run.

Go Jayhawks!

Tony Bandle 1 year, 4 months ago

This year's future class [assuming BenMac leaves] will be Perry, AWIII, RIO, Semi, LL, Nadiir, Justin.

Next year's future class will be Conner, Brannen, Wayno, Jo Jo, Frank, Julius???

The initials "PT" takes on a new meaning......"Pretty Tough"...as in highly competitive.

AWIII better become the Secretary of Defense in order to showcase his Offense!!

PS. Thanks to IU, Kansas, with a win Friday, could go up 6 victories on NC, 2076 to 2070.

Big difference between Connor and AWIII: Andrew is a blue blood D1 caliber recruit. Connor was not. He played as much as he did out of pure necessity. KU had a couple of lean yrs recruiting, combined with some recruiting misses and Selby jumping after a year. These are the reasons Connor saw the floor as much as he did. AWIII is a talent that will see court time due to his strengths, not due to the teams weaknesses or holes.

Part 3

If Elijah can't cut it, and if Naadir can't come out of his slump, both of which are significant possibilities right now (though not probabilities), AW3 could be on the court and getting the baptism under fire that Brady got his season after a redshirting. Brady measured up, and flourished, largely because the redshirt year had developed him to the point that he could do all the basics of glue, plus guard the best perimeter guy, plus shoot 40% from trey that that team needed. AW3 seems to lack the defensive footwork to guard the best perimeter opponent. But AW3, if forced into major service, surely could be a fine wing on a 3-2 zone, both getting up in the face of shooters at the trey stripe and, perhaps as importantly, rebounding on the backside. AW3 has noted that one of the strengths he brings is rebounding. And on this team, that is a highly valued strength that Self might be willing to scheme towards if worse comes to worse with Elijah and his Naadir.

Self will stick with m2m so long as EJ can play. But if EJ, or another perimeter player were to go down for long, this could be the year Self goes zone in a big way.

And AW3 could be a major part of that.

Part 2

~Conner, having played football, appeared less daunted by the physical contact than AW3, as XTReme Muscle escalated sharply over the course of his 5 years in college basketball. AW3 seems to be coping okay, but has to start out in a much more violent D1 game than Conner did six seasons ago. (Note: 6 seasons ago D1 was pastoral compared to what it is now.)

~Conner had to play behind Brandon Rush, Brady, Xavier, and Josh Selby, three draft choices and one D-Leaguer with near 40% trey guns and good to great athleticism (three passing the eye test, one not), waiting and waiting for a shot to play in the rotation. AW3 is stuck behind Travis and/or Ben McLemore his first season. Travis is one of our great defenders, so to replace him as just a back-up you have to really be able to guard. Ben Mac is a probable draft choice. With Selden coming, AW3 is apt to face a similar uphill talent obstacle as Conner faced.

~AW3 seems to have a bit lankier body that could, when ever he gets through, make him into a more effective perimeter defender. Conner proved he could take XTReme abuse and keep playing his role, and dish it back, once he finally cracked the rotation to average 20mpg on a team that won 30+ games, played decisive roles in 2-3 victories down the stretch, and made it to the National Finals.

Summary: If AW3 gets lucky like Brady and Conner did, and is at KU during a season, when Self doesn't have a draft choice, or an OAD, ahead of him, then AW3 will either start, as Brady did one season, or start and be a 20 minute man as Brady became behind Xavier and Josh Selby, or as Conner did behind Travis, once AW3 gets a little more development behind him.

Could AW3 play quite a bit this season? Based on what we've seen so far, it is doubtful. But if Elijah Johnson's knee deteriorates, instead of getting better, or gets re-tweaked every 3, or 4, games, Self will almost have no choice but to play AW3 in order to get a second trey shooter in the game, when Elijah is out, either for blows, or for missing entire games.

"Comparing AW3 and Conner"

Part 1

Comparing AW3 to Conner seems apt so far, whether or not Self is making the comparison publicly to discourage other coaches from poaching him, as Self takes a couple years to develop him (Self seems a little tired of Quintrel and Royce and Milton taking powders for more PT, thus leaving him short handed), or to lower fan expectations and get them off Self's and AW3's backs.

Similarities:

~Both come from strong, intact and religious families.

~Both Conner and AW3 start out as trifectates. As a freshman logging clean up minutes, Conner shot 50%. AW3 is shooting 40% in the same minimal role.

~AW3 is 6-6. Conner was 6-5.

~Conner was a great quarterback and a Missouri state Mr. Basketball with quite a few non blue blood D1 offers. Conner was a walk on at KU, because his father could afford it and KU was short of rides his freshman season due to RoyGate sanctions. Otherwise, Conner would have probably have gotten a ride. AW3 was, according to an LJW story noting AW3's father, wanted by 24 other schools, but neither a Mr. Basketball nor a great high school quarterback, and so probably not quite as versatile and natural an athlete as Conner. On the other hand, AW3 was more highly ranked by recruiting gurus going in, because of his added length coupled with his great shooting, not apparently because of greater athleticism, at least based on what we've seen of it so far.

~Conner struggled mightily with footwork on defense his freshman year and with getting in the flow of the offense his freshman year. AW3 has too.

~Conner seemed smart. AW3 seems smart.

~Conner seemed more of a natural shooter. AW3 seems more of a by-the-numbers shooter. But either way, both reputedly stunning practice shooters and both evidence above average trifectation as freshman.

Differences:

~AW3 passes the eye test. Conner does not.

~Early on, i.e., after Europe, and early in practice, Self said AW3 would be the first guy off the bench on the perimeter. But then something happened. Maybe his defensive weakness surfaced as contact increased. Maybe he struggled with learning the offense as all 1000 pages began to hit. Maybe he did something to get in Self's dog house. Maybe of late he got some nagging injuries. Whatever, he got marginalized from the rotation. In contrast, Conner was never talked about as being first off the bench his freshman season, though Self did talk about wanting to get his shooting in the game somehow.

~AW3, as a freshman, looks injured, judging from the quilts increasingly covering his legs. Conner seemed not to be injured his freshman year.

Anyone wish to speculate on Bill Self's comments regarding conference realignment as shown below......

Self commented on realignment in the wake of Wednesday’s announcement that Louisville had joined the ACC.

“It’s amazing to me the movement that could potentially occur in the immediate future,” Self said. “Everybody thought it was pretty much status quo, and there’s one guy working it behind the scenes that’s really good that has now changed the whole landscape of what’s going on, and that’s (Big Ten commissioner) Jim Delany. With what he’s done with the Big Ten (adding Rutgers, Maryland), it’s now caused a trickle down.

We are going to stay at 10, which is the perfect number, but going forward is that really reasonable to be at 10 when everybody else is gonna go (16)?”

Self said he thought the Big 12 was solid.

“With the situation with the SEC and the Big 12 in football, the alliance, the new television deal, I mean, we are in great shape. I don’t feel like there’s any need to rush to do anything.”

“I do think there should be talks in case, a contingency plan. Who knows where that will go moving forward?”

Bring on the speculation.

Andrew, while you are focusing studiously on great shooters in the NBA game, take some moments to reflect upon the recent history and development of players who have made great strides over time in the Bill Self System. Currently, Jeff and Travis, a pair of 5th year stars, stand forth as terrific examples. Teahan, Reed, the Morris twins, T-Rob, D. Jackson, Kaun, Morningstar. These players made huge advances after their initial struggles in the system. For a variety of reasons, Tyshawn Taylor did not really get his game completely focused and together until the final semester of his senior year. If you stay the course and make use of Ms Hudy's training facilities, your intense practices this season with a nationally ranked lineup will soon pay huge dividends. Bill Self has recruited some terrific players for next season. However, we all know that Coach relies as much as possible on experienced Jayhawks. Most fans on this site sense that your potential bears a huge upside...and that some night soon your college game will progress to the point that you can stay on the court long enough to light up a scoresheet.

Jayhawk fans observe every nuance. AW was the one who came in for 4 minutes, got the steal and then got the intentional which caused EJ to step in. Self wants Traylor and Withey to step in. They have got to quit being nice guys on the court. Robinson's quirking mean attitude made all players afraid of him. We know Reli and EJ won't back down. I remember once when Raef got punched and we found out that he also had the attitude.

AW getting the 4 minutes and not Rio is telling. We will need AW's gun when Conference starts. In an interview, Morningstar said he knew he would never get on the court until he could cover his man. I think we'll see AW in two weeks, not 5 years.

Jonathan Allison 1 year, 4 months ago

This thread has gotten off to a rough start. Some suggesting that Self thinks he's Conner 2.0, some saying he may transfer, comparing him to players who could shoot but were not athletic.

I know I said this yesterday but I am pretty sure that the Conner comparison was Self's way of suggesting that he has similar (by type, not magnitude) strengths and weaknesses that Conner had. He's got great form and a sweet shot. Conner from the first day of his freshman year was known as an excellent shooter. He was also unplayable because of a lack of athleticism. By strength and conditioning training, offseason workouts, and practice he was able to build up his base well enough that he could slide his feet and change direction quickly enough to allow him to use his length to guard smaller players. He was always a shooter, but he had to build himself into a player.

White will improve this year on defense because his legs will get stronger and he'll get more practice keeping his man in front of him, but he's going to make a big step change in the offseason because of Andrea Hudy. She'll give him a training regimen that make the freshman AWIII look like Mr. Chicken Legs. He'll have much more quickness, stopping ability, change of direction after a full year of traning. By next season he should have a whole new explosivity to his game. After all that then it comes down to, as Self puts it "learning what we're doing".

Not every Sophomore yet understands the offensive and defensive movements to limit their on court mistakes. But if AWIII truly is a student of the game and prepares and works like his reputation suggests that he does, then he will be a totally different player this time next year.

"...Oregon State is coached by Craig Robinson, brother-in-law of President Barack Obama. Robinson played for the Princeton team that knocked Self’s Oklahoma State team out of the 1983 NCAA Tournament in the first round."

Wow, that's real motivation for HCBS to want to beat this team!

I didn't think the "Princeton style" play would have been effective against a B12/Big8 team, especially one playing "Okieball" as Jaybate has coined it. Maybe Michele and BHO were part of Princeton's fanbase.

Here's hoping that AW3 is able to work his way onto the court soon. I really like his shot (from the limited amount I've seen). I think if his d can catch up he'll see significant minutes. Whether its this season or two from now is what I'm curious about.

Good luck Andrew!
