@HighEliteMajor 13 for 26 from 3…nba teams can’t keep this up…rebound the misses and we’ll assert ourselves. We we down by 13 to wvu at halftime…down by 14 with 3 minutes to wvu…down by 9 with 2:12 to memphis…
We are going to win this!!!
Langford is waiting to see a couple of things.
- What happens with grad transfers
- What happens with guys and the NBA
I don’t know what Vick is going to do at this point. I’m really not sure what he should do.
If KU wins the title, Newman probably has to leave. With the tournament he’s had, he almost has to go. Even if they don’t win it, Newman has shown something this month that may mean he needs to go. He was an elite talent coming out of HS. He has gotten back to that elite level. His efficiency has exploded, and he’s done all of this while averaging fewer than 1.5 turnovers per game, and his rebounding numbers are up.
Every important stat is up from his year at MSU - FG%, PPG, FT%, 3PT%, REB, STL, TO - Malik has become a better all around player, and now his scoring is back to the level a lot of people envisioned when he was coming out of HS (averaged 30 a game in HS). Let’s not forget that he was better than Devin Booker coming out of HS. He has shown the handle and shooting stroke, along with a renewed commitment on the defensive end, that could get him paid this year.
Don’t forget the most important stat went down from the previous years…number of run ins with the Po-Po. He’s stayed pretty clean in the last year and a half or so.
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.
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.
bmensch1 picked Kansas on 10/15/17 and strongly maintains his position. As much as I enjoy the Kenpom rankings, Sagarin, CBS, ESPN, SI, or whomever experts…I find their selections often flawed.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
