Self: Ankle injury not devastating for KU guard Svi Mykhailiuk

Reading reviews and stories about the combine Svi should he decide to stay in and go pro definitely won't make the first round and border line for the 2nd. That leaves the option of overseas play which would be a possibility.
Should he return to play college ball would require adjustment as I believe 13 have scholarships
and that is the limit allowed.
Watching ESPN showing the combine lots of players that are capable of pro play. And most of the
first round pick guys didn't play.
Be interesting to see what Svi does. Will he be a passenger on the plane to Italy?

Tom Keegan: Lawson family could make Lawrence a high school basketball hotbed too

Excellent idea Tom. One would think with the transferring of college players the parents and youngins might want to leave as well, Lawrence would be a strong place to consider. Others have done so and employment by the parents would be available. Seems like the parents are educators. I feel this is a possibility.

New KU forward Jack Whitman eager to test skills at Kansas

I noticed that he was offered a scholarship so that will be a problem to be solved should Svi decide to return.

No mention Matt whether a walkon or a scholarship player. Unless Svi leaves no openings.

KU junior Svi Mykhailiuk invited to NBA combine

Curious how the Svi opening up his draft potential has to be helped by gaining NBA combine.
One would think Svi wants to be drafted. But with 30 first rounders and a few foreign entries
that looks like a difficult task. Should he make the 2nd round even that might be a challenge.
But lets face it Self already has 4 player transfers and that would certainly require another
recruit if he goes pro. Will a top rated recruit wait to see what Svi does? Looks like a problem present squad would tend to a inside player. Coleby is the only one with limited experience.
I just feel that Svi will not be wearing a Jayhawk uniform next November.

Josh Jackson formally charged in criminal damage case, plans to file for diversion

Jackson more than likely wants his court cases to be completed before deciding to enter the draft.
Diversion should help him solve the case not sure if the other case will affect the diversion application.
We can assume he will enter the draft unless he feels another college season would be a desire.

Tom Keegan: Graham return turns attention to next season, away from Elite Eight loss

I hope our leader Graham will call Duval and tell him we need him at KU to play our small ball offense. Who would have a better effect than Graham. Maybe I'm a little gassed but top leaders often get results. Worth a try Graham.

KU's Frank Mason remains team-first despite barrage of individual honors

Great review of the Mason story at KU. Should be a reminder to others that the 4th year can be a great way to end your college career.

Tony Hull makes 'Louisianimals' part of Kansas football vernacular

Recruiting is a must for success. It sounds like Beaty has turned the corner and we can expect
some victories this fall. Pipelines help and hey keep it up.
