@drgnslayr You didn’t direct it to me but I want to just ask–how do you have regular contact with, or chances to watch, kids who are playing for shoe-sponsored AAU coaches and teams and leagues, and how do you get info about the kids from those coaches, without having contact with the shoe companies’ representatives?
I thought KU played quite well even in the first half. They beat the press much better than previous years. Their D was really solid. They took away WV strength, offensive rebounding, and made them into a jump shooting team.
I thought Self had an excellent game plan and execution by players was good. The few TOs in the early stages can be expected, more mental lapses.
Hate crimes do generally carry an additional sentencing penalty, so there is some negotiating leverage on the side of the prosecutor. For most hate crimes, the possibility of probation is off the table because the hate crime statutes make it an aggravating factor. At times, justice may be served by not charging or pursuing the hate crime conviction, which in a way misses the whole point because it doesn’t act as a deterrent from committing the crime, just as a bargaining chip in charging/sentencing.
The Kaw River is the same as the Kansas River. The Kansas River is in NE Kansas. The Ar-Kansas river is further south and completely dry 99% of the time here in western Kansas (Colorado dams up all the water), but flows full time in central KS to east then south.
