Way Too Early Top 25 - 2018/19 Season



    1. Kansas Jayhawks

    Key Losses: Devonte Graham, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, Malik Newman, Sam Cunliffe, Clay Young

    Key Additions: Devon Dotson, Quentin Grimes, David McCormack, Dedric Lawson, K.J. Lawson, Charlie Moore, Ochai Agbaji

    The Jayhawks lose a Final Four MOP and Big 12 POY, Midwest Regional MOP, and a tenacious 6’5" dude with a 3" vertical who completely shut down a 7’1" Syracuse big for 21 minutes and was instrumental in proving Self’s system, when followed, will work during a stressful time in December. They also lose Sam Cunliffe who came in with high aspirations but requested his release to seek a new adventure elsewhere in search of more playing time. Jayhawks will potentially lose “Mr. November…take off 3 months…and show back up in March” and bmensch1’s favorite player, Lagerald Vick to the NBA…but…

    The Jayhawks add 3 standout, best in the class, Mcdonald’s all american freshman, a legitimate NBA class stud in 6’9" Dedric Lawson who averaged 19.2ppg and 9.9rpg at Memphis, his brother KJ Lawson who averaged 12.3ppg and 8.1rpg at Memphis, and Charlie Moore who averaged 12.2ppg and 3.5apg at California. The 3 transfers, Sam Cunliffe, and Clay Young proved to be a standout team that beat the 2017-18 Final Four KU starters on a regular basis in practice games per reports.

    The only plans the Jayhawk faithful should make on April 8, 2019 is either a trip to Minneapolis, MN or party planning for an 11:37 EST party to celebrate back to back National championships.

    2-337. Who Cares…4,368 kids just wasted their time playing for second place. Well there are the 26 kids who will live their championship moments with an NIT and CBI victory parade.



  • Sorry to be that guy - but if he left, no way Sam Cunliffe could be considered a key loss.



  • Wait is there actual info that Cunliffe is being forced out?



  • @bmensch1 Doke’s comin back, so is De Sousa. We gonna be Stacked next season!!!

    Negative sir. I just presume he will be.



  • Lol Clay helped us beat SU but come on. I’m mixed on Sam because Self has stated since the beginning he was a project so I’d assume he knew he wasn’t gonna get a boat load of PT his first couple of years.



  • @kjayhawks I feel it’s much more likely Vick goes pro. Remember folks it’s not about NBA draft position. Look at Selden.



  • @BShark I’ve been saying for some time- -I have to agree with ya - -I think Vick is gone. - he is ready for some money. - -If he goes un drafted he will go the route so many others go - he will go over sea’s pick up a little green and work on his game and maybe test the NBA in another year or two. - I’ve just felt for quite awhile that he is gone and with us making such a deep run in the tourney and then ESPECIALLY if we should happen to win it all - -that for sure would be all he needed - -would have no reason to come back as he has accomplished all he could in College. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • I like Self’s gaurd oriented lineups, a lot of times I think it’s easier to watch. I’m worried about our team PG, we’ve been so lucky with Frank/Devonte. Remember the times of Elijah/Tyshawn? Good players, but man did they make some careless plays. Back to Big Man U!



  • @BucknellJayhawk3 The PG position is in good hands. No one at MCDAA can stop talking about Dotson.



  • @bmensch1

    Are you talking about Svi shutting down Bagley of Duke? If that is the case, Svi is really 6’-8" and Bagley 6’-11"…and Svi can jump a lot higher than 3 inches; 10 rebounds against Duke would vouch for that.

    Negative…Clay Young versus Syracuse.



  • Devon Dotson and Marcus Garret are a top tier duel pg option and Charlie and KJ are two vets that are great back ups. I think the only question is whether Legerald leaves. If he does I suspect Romeo Langford will commit and if not then we have our senior leader talking mad shit on the court. Wouldn’t mind having LG back for another year.
