KU not blinded by Glitter City
Like most blue-chip basketball recruits, Darrell Arthur has been in Glitter City many times before, the last time the summer of 2005 with his Team Texas AAU team. "It was hot," Arthur, Kansas University's freshman forward, recalled of the dogs days of July, when AAU basketball heats up in Vegas. "Hot and a lot of people: That's what I remember. It's a good environment. I like the place."
