Myles Turner to announce college choice on April 30

Comments about the OAD's - that's why last year's loss to UM was really bad. That was a younger team that had a shooter willing to take (and hit) critical shots he had missed earlier in the game. We committed critical guard mistakes, missed a reverse that should have been a dunk, and let a guard drive straight to the basket. You just aren't going to get Withey's year back in the form of another big man all that easily. Of course I'm sure that AZ and FL fans are saying the same thing - that sort of chemistry is hard to repeat.

Myles Turner to announce college choice on April 30

I'd like some comments about my theory that Turner is waiting to see what Parker at Duke is doing. If Parker unexpectedly stays, there is no roster spot for Turner.

Myles Turner to announce college choice on April 30

This is weird. He was supposed to announce this week before the Jordan Brand Classic. I worry that someone is buying into this kid and that it has Josh Selby written all over it. Having said that, I don't see this as a sign that he's picking Duke. Somehow, I see UCONN in this at the last minute. Is he waiting for NBA early entry deadline to see who stays? Parker hasn't announced yet.

N.H. prep guard Graham plans Kansas visit

Does this mean someone for sure is transferring or that Turner is definitely off the board?

KU freshman Joel Embiid headed to NBA Draft

Tournament showed something else - guards who will never play in the NBA can control a game if given 4 years of experience. And wasn't DeAndre Daniels supposed to be at KU or Texas until UCONN appeared out of nowhere?

KU freshman Joel Embiid headed to NBA Draft

All the more reason that the Stanford game needed to be played with some urgency. I'm still stuck on the Michigan game last year. Chances don't come all that often.

Joel Embiid to announce future plans at news conference today

Isn't the fact that the press conference is closed to the public a dead give-away? Hate to say.

I still say that the NCAA needs to do a better job at protecting it's product.

Column: Embiid waits; public wonders

As a friend of mine who is on the HS official's committee in another state and who also refs college games - you don't turn down generational wealth. Granted some guys blow it, but you don't turn it down. Some day there will be an exception. Duke fans are convinced it is Parker - but he's different - doesn't need to go pro and has his Mormon mission coming up anyway. I'm surprised that there isn't more NBA opinion on how they would handle Embiid's back. Odom was a bust because someone didn't do their homework, or he just had an unforeseen breakdown. I'm surprised the NBA leaks haven't already leaked out.

The guy at WSU was pretty good too. What I noted from the tournament is that if you have small guards they absolutely must get under the skin of the other teams guards, get at their feet, cause turnovers. WSU was pretty good at that vs. the Harrisons. If you let the bigger guard drive you, you're in trouble. Also, if you have smaller guards they have to have a step back jump shot, for obvious reasons. Frank Mason needs to take that role. Also thought that UCONN had a great strategy going over the top of Florida and UK's zones. I wish we would have done more of that. Maybe Florida and UK's zones didn't look as packed in as we usually saw, because UCONN did have outside threats.
