I guess there is some kind of a new rule or something for this now that allows a school to help with this and not get in trouble - -some program or something that will help pay for them to come - -something about they get allotted so much - -had never heard of this - pretty sweet.
Coach saying he see’s no difference between us and Villanova - -their strengths are our strengths -saying usually there are things where our weakness is there strength or visa versa - -but this is not the case with them. - Their strengths are our strengths.
Saying they have 5 guys who can stretch the floor - -we have four plus a big. - -Coach saying LaGerald is a much different player then he was in mid Feburary - - - Silvio is a much different player then he was in mid Feburary - saying Silvio is really like a huge difference maker on offense but his physical presence on the floor his rebounding - -saying that the KU team has the confidence in Silvio now that when Doke is out they are not worried
He was ask what it’s going to take for a team to be the last one standing come Monday night?- - -he response being able to eliminate a lot of the distractions and saying there are so many distractions that surround a final four - -plus you need a guy that can really step up in the game.
Coach says that Clay Kuster from Loyola was good enough to play for KU - it’s just the timing wasn’t right - -saying Kuster came to all the KU camps and such - but with KU having Devonte & Frank - -timing just wasn’t right - -saying recruiting is a lot about timing - just a few little tidbits - - pretty coo stuff
