Opinion: Guessing game — Nobody knows where prep phenom Andrew Wiggins will spend his one year in college

Jennings' European experience wasn't exactly all it was cracked up to be.

Opinion: This KU loss looks, sounds different than others

By KU standards this team is at the least playing at a mediocre level. This team has been overrated. McLemore is the only legit talent on the squad, and he's still on the steep portion of the learning curve. EJ was great as a complement to Tyshawn, but now that he's the man, he's being exposed- 37% from the field, a 4.7:3.2 Assist:turnover ratio. Tharpe is even worse. Withey and Releford are effort guys, but they aren't great talents, and can't lift the team on their own. Jeff is a decent defender, but he doesn't have the quickness to consistently deal with athletic bigs. Travis is best working off other players, and isn't suited to initiate his own offense. Kevin Young is well, Kevin Young. Perry Ellis appears to be at least a year away.

The starting five is essentially 4 role players around a top-3 NBA pick who is a redshirt frosh. It should not be surprising that this is not an elite team. I'd be happy if they could make the second weekend of the tourney which looks dubious at best right now.
