Tracking the recruitment of the 12 members of Bill Self's U18 USA Basketball squad

I feel the same way..trust and believe that other programs who are targeting KU's recruits are gonna use the FBI investigation against KU to gain an edge or place doubt in their minds..the FBI is supposed to make some announcement in October but who knows what they will say and who knows what the NCAA may decide to do..I wanna stay optimistic but you just never know...its for this reason I hope Self decides to sit Silvio until they know something about his future status..no sense is risking having to vacate this upcoming season

KU coach Bill Self eager to see commitment level of trio of transfers

1) this might be the least experienced team Self has ever had..outside of Azibuike we really have no idea how anyone else will play..the Lawson are about to play a much higher level of ball than what they had at Memphis
2)it will be interesting to see how Self fits all these new pieces together..but id rather have this problem than the problem of no talent
3)the Silvio situation in the biggest question mark..you have this uber talented kid that you know has some possible eligibility issues that could affect the season...do you play him and take the risk of vacating a entire season, or do you sit him until you know for 100% certain and lose a guy that valuable ? Id rather they sit him and not risk the season
4)it certainly wont be the first time Uber talented freshmen have been pushed into prime time playing time but this season, he doesnt have a Mason or Graham to guide them..no steadying hand out on the court
5) this is the type of lineup ive been waiting for..Ive hated the small ball lineup..sure it was fun to watch all those 3's but it sucked watching them getting outrebounded and out toughed..
6) Im betting Dok comes out and plays with more focus and intensity..if he can remain out of foul trouble and at least hit FT near 60% there isnt a reason he shouldnt score 15+ per night..his rebounding and foot work on defense has to get bette
7)Self better at least have an idea of what lineup works the best by the 2nd game of the season when they play Michigan State so they can avoid getting stomped on national TV LOL
8)this team has the personnel to be an elite defensive team as long as the freshmen catch on

I think the only part of this team that might give Self fits is the back court..with a Junior Azibuike and a Junior Dedric Lawson, he'll have 2 high performance front court guys to rely on.i cant see Self starting Grimes AND Dotson..Moore has the experience and he has talent..

Tom Keegan: Devon Dotson knows freshman season won't be easy

not to be Debbie Downer, but we also have to hope this Silvio situation doesnt come back to bite us too hard..Im hoping they either sit him as a precaution until they know for certain about his status or the NCAA can just tell KU to go ahead and play him and not to worry about the what ifs

Tom Keegan: Devon Dotson knows freshman season won't be easy

this is the beauty of having Moore...Dotson doesnt have to come in and start, he doesnt have to worry about becoming the next great Self PG right away..Moore will start, he has the skill and experience..Dotson can simply fill in and learn at his own pace

Notebook: Udoka Azubuike still not a shooter, but working on his free throws

a kid with his size will never be a shooter..his best bet is to develop a 10ft jump shot that he can make with some consistency...but I still dont expect Self to have any set plays where Azibuike comes off a pick and spots up for a jump shot LOL

KU freshman David McCormack a 'classic big' who fits today's modern game

hopefully we get to watch him play at KU for 4 years just like Simien as well...if he plays anything like Wayne did, he'll be a huge contributor for this team

After receiving NBA feedback, Udoka Azubuike aims to get in 'way better shape'

seeing a show DeSousa might not even see the floor this season Azibuike better become a better rebounder..plus Lawson will eat up boards as well..this should be the best rebounding team Self has had in at least 3-4 years

not likely...Azibuke not avoiding silly fouls would be the only reason DM would get any sizable minutes at the 5..David could play beside Azibuike in certain lineups but he isnt about to steal Azibuiki playing time..
