    Posted this under the other article; Egypt is not a good venue for the U-19 tournament right now.
    See U.S. State Department security assessment and travel warnings for Egypt, updated last month.

      There is almost nothing that would make me want to travel to that part of the world right now.

    Can someone please provide the backstory on that picture of Woo with the members (real or otherwise) of KISS? That has to be a great one! He makes them look like middle school kids. πŸ™‚

    So is Woo going to ride a horse into his naturalization ceremony? πŸ˜€

    The frustrating thing for me about Cal’s players and the NBA draft is that it does not feel like we get many kids who come back when it is a tossup on whether or not to come back. The exception was probably 2014. 2011 was an outlier with Lamb and Jones because of the NBA lockout. It seems like a lot of other top level programs end up keeping some of these high ranked talents for three and even four years – Duke, Kansas, UNC – all seem to have players who are highly ranked who bring continuity and are leaders for multiple years. Maybe it’s just me seeing it this way…

      On the other hand, look at how well our players do in the NBA compared to Kansas or Duke, etc. Also, Cal doesn’t try to convince his guys to come back just to benefit him, unlike most other coaches.

      Also, we haven’t had the ability to “test the waters” like we do now. Briscoe would have been gone if it weren’t for this new rule. Then we’d likely be SOL this year.

      Wish Dakari had returned for his soph year.

      This year will be different, you will have Briscoe, Gabrielle, and Jones back for sure i would think.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:48 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      Dakari is a prime example of someone who probably would have come back if he had the chance to test the waters.

      Although he is doing really well for himself. it just sucks that he is the type of player that they don’t need in this generation of NBA where if you are a center that can’t shoot threes, we don’t need you taking up space on our court.

      Briscoe gone
      Wenyen is a maybe.
      Joens will be back definitely

      Cal will tell Briscoe to leave because he’s not going to get any better – although i disagree with this philosphy. but it won’t change anything

      Wenyen has been hit or miss. When he is on his game, he is awesome. I bet he will atract a lot of attention when he tests the waters and will get amazing feedback because of his potential. because of that i think he is gone.

      Jones is a giant question mark. is he really doing THAT bad in practice? can he get better in an offseason? I sure hope so.

      It also doesn’t help that guys that could stay here and develop leave. (Wiltjer, Lee, Matthews)



    • RealCatsFan
      10:59 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      I really hope Wenyen comes back. I think he could make huge strides next year and really give himself as a solid first round pick. This year I think he is mid second round at best. Yes, he has length and athleticism that might be intriguing to a scout, but he would be brought on as a project, and probably wouldn’t see the court very much. Chances of landing in the D league are high for picks like that.

      Hope Gabriel and Briscoe come back….think their draft outlook would only improve.

    Foreign players at UK….does Mike Flynn and Kyle Macy count?
    They were from Indiana.

      I better watch it – my wife was born in Indiana (but she is a big time UK fan). πŸ˜‰

      Indiana went down again last night, 15-12 record; I’m afraid they will can Crean.
      I like a little hilarity with my basketball.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:58 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      I thought Crean had like a $4mil buyout and 3 years left on his contract?

      He couldn’t take Briscoe’s triple double.



    • Realme
      11:25 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      That is probably what did it, rg. Stroked out.



    • J-Dub421
      11:25 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      RG may be on to something here. Do you think it was a heart attack or a stroke that did him in after Briscoe’s triple double?



    • Booby Petrino
      11:55 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      I was thinking Big Board offed him. What says you, Big Board?



    • UK Big Board Update
      12:57 pm February 16, 2017 Permalink

      I think the football game did it for him. After years of constant ragging on UK and Stoops, we went to their place and beat their best team ever with a Heisman winner.

    If Trae Young stays home and goes to Oklahoma, then I will firmly call him a Momma’s Boy ala Marques Bolden.

      Did you read the article about Young’s decision making process the other day. His mom is clearly calling the shots.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:38 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      Watched Bolden last night; played 2 minutes, 1 block, 1 personal foul, zeros across the board.
      How’s he doin’, Momma.

      RG, that’s a harder argument to make when we have our own MCD AA riding the bench, behind the coach’s son walk on.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:44 am February 16, 2017 Permalink

      True, but Bolden was ranked much higher than SKJ.

    Duke looks dam good now. That’s a team i don’t want to play in the trnt, besides having to look at #3 makes me sick, can’t even say his name.

      That game last night was boring…25-21 at the half.

      yeah total snooze fest. Tatum is a great player. The rest are just a bunch of d bags.

    I thought the defense was great by both teams, yeah kind of boring.
