Not a good tournament for even numbered seeds. 13 of the 16 are odd numbers.
That said, it has been an odd tournament.
I think KU has four future pro players in the starting rotation. The one who is not a future pro player is the one everyone talks about and is possibly player of the year.
I think this bodes well for flying below the radar and keeping the pressure off. Keep piling on the expectations to Duke and Mich St and others. We will have to beat a solid team next week, but that will put us in an epic dual in the Elite 8 for which we will likely be an underdog (yes, even as a #1) and will be able to play looser than usual.
@truehawk93 Vick can still turn it up a notch. He has been good, but he can be better. Compare Devonte last year (very good) to this year (great). Vick could improve by at least the same amount. He has the physical ability to be great, if he locks in every single possession and takes ownership of the game.
Totally agree. And this is the time to make the step toward that next level. A great tournament this year could propel him into a great position next year.
He is spurty and inconsistent, but like you said, needs to lock in every possession on both sides.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
