Column: Freshmen duo’s KU stay short, sweet

I hate the one-and-done rule, but with no change on the immediate horizon, maybe it’s time to relish the gifts the rule has bestowed upon Lawrence. After all, one year of watching Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins certainly trumps not getting to watch them at all, doesn’t it? Column by Tom Keegan
