Freshman KU basketball player Brannen Greene cited for leaving scene of accident

Big fan of a couple of decent sit down Mexican restys in Larrytown.

Will Andrew Wiggins average over/under 18 points next season?

Agreed....

Wiggins will most likely lead the team in scoring. I'm betting 16.7 ppg. Wayne 13.4 ppg Perry will average 12.8 ppg. Naadir will average 10.1. Greene 9.6.

Those are my top 5 scorers.

IMO Greene can flat fill it up. Due to his handle, I could see Bill with the above lineup minus Naa and add in either Jo Jo or Black for a few possessions.

Another combo:
Wayne, Wiggins and Greene can all handle the ball in the open court and so can Perry. Black can run and will give us some extra possessions with his rebounding.

Wayne the 1, Frankamp the 2, Wiggins the 3 with Greene playing the 4 and Perry the 5 would be awesome to watch on occasion as well. Greene can rebound. Wiggins can rebound. Wayne can rebound. Perry can rebound. What a luxury to have tall and athletic guards who can stroke it, handle the ball and crash the boards.

There are so many guys who can play multiple spots on this roster. Bill has to be salivating at the possibilities.

I'm not sleepin' on Frank Mason either. As a matter of fact I like all our guys and am anxious to see who steps it up this year.

Disagree....

Greene won't shirt. Kid actually can dribble in addition to shoot. He's an inch taller than AW3, has just as pretty a stroke and can actually handle the ball. Kids also super intelligent so coach is gonna love him. He'll work hard and get about 10 - 17 mpg this season. AW3 has a chance to average around the same. I don't see either shirting but I think it would be AW3 before Greene. Neither are tremendous defenders. Both have similar body types. Both have limited athleticism. Both can stroke it. I see Greene's ball handing as the difference.

How a fingertip, a late rotation and a great player contributed to Michigan's frantic comeback over KU

I don't understand why we thought a 3 pointer by Naa in regulation was better than running him or EJ off screens in the back court to give them 4.5 seconds of steam at the hoop. Tyus Edney had a second less time and got all the way to the rim. Correct me if i'm wrong but Michigan doesn't shoot free throws on a player control charge against us if it happens. Mentioning MIzzwho's failure always makes me feel better.

There are many games over Self's tenure here during his postseason performance that I think we could look at and say if they were managed better we could be looking at a different result. I love that we win our conference every year however I would easily trade half or more of those championships for a win vs Kentucky, VCU, Michigan, UNI, Bradley, Bucknell, Michigan State or others. His regular season success sets the bar so high for the post season. Unfortunately many times I don't think we have hit that bar.

EJ could have called a timeout in both circumstance. His turnovers were squarely on him and Self. Yes KY should have stepped out further and harder. Yes Trav should have helped the helper and yes they lost as a team. EJ as part of the team has his part of the blame. Complete team failure including the coach. Fun season and even game to watch however the end will be as painful as any over the years to forget.

Question for anyone who can or wants to answer it.

In Selfs 10 years here what has his NCAA tournament seeding been and what has the result been? Curious to see how often we reach the result we were seeded for or better.

Also curious what other top programs have done during this stretch. I have a feeling the result will be somewhat depressing but I would love to be surprised. Self is a great coach and I wouldn't trade him for anyone however he seems to overachieve during the regular season and underachieve in the post season fairly regularly.

Maybe I'm a fair weather fan. Maybe I just care too much. Maybe a little time away to recharge the batteries after yet another post season shortcoming is what I need. This article has reopened the wound a little.

KU football lands juco cornerback

Cogburn

Love the avatar. Sad they don't make movie stars like him anymore. Bigger than life he was.

I think you are wrong about Weis. I understand your position but I think you are wrong. At least I hope you are.
