Note to all collegiate athletes out there: if the guys you roll with have guns and weed, it's just a matter of time until something stupid like this happens. It baffles me that athletes throw away their possibly lucrative futures on stupid decisions on a random night. Especially athletes that are getting a second chance.

Wing players are typically underrated. Remember that Dwyane Wade was picked 4th in the NBA draft behind Darko Milicic (a notorious Ford favorite prospect Bill Simmons refuses to let Ford forget). We're all biased here, but I think Ben is the one guy in this draft who could be great. He is too nice and too passive but people said the same thing about Paul George too. If Anthony Davis wasn't such a freak people would have pegged him as "passive" at UK rather than "unselfish". As long as the team drafting McLemore mentors him and lights that fire they will be glad they drafted him. That's leaping ability and shooting stroke are too good to pass up in my opinion. Dude wins at the line too. He can score a lot of different ways and his leaping ability had him protecting the rim a lot too. Seems like scouts gloss over this.

Weird article. Reads like a LinkedIn profile or something. Does he think coaches looking for assistants peruse this site?

People need to calm down. Russell, Darnell, and Travis openly talked about nearly leaving KU. It's obvious all of the guys on the team liked Rio a lot. He has a lot of potential and this late in the recruiting process, I'm not sure they would fill his spot with any quality anyway. Give the guy another offseason and I'm sure he will contribute much like many of the other guys the rode the bench in year one.

Agreed. Kids never show their cards on these visits. Honestly, most of them probably don't like watching games in which they feel like they would already be better than most of the participants.

It's funny because Rio is just going through the same thing Russell, Tyshawn and Elijah all went through sitting on the bench. I wonder if he realizes that Sherron Collins, Cole Aldrich and Darrell Arthur were all bench players at points on the National Championship team. Or that Thomas Robinson only started one year in his KU career.
You earn playing time at KU. Last time Rio came in a game he promptly turned the ball over. Very much like Tharpe last year. Dude needs to calm down and just work hard. He'll get his turn.

The girls in AZ are attractive. I've seen "He Got Game". Only explanation why people keep picking that NIT program.

Great get for SIU. Coach Hinson was fun to have around for awhile.

Amazing. Hardly looks like the same team that got stomped by Baylor at home.

But when asked why the radio station chose to do its promotion during a time period that included a KU game, Wachs said it was important to run the promotion over a weekend and “because it was just one game.”
Wow. Out of touch with one of your markets?
