    Interesting nugget in the link below.  Kenya Hunter played against Kwame's dad in the Atlantic 10 conference when Hunter was at Duquesne.

    Very excited to welcome the following schools into St. Mary’s this week to watch me work out. Michigan State @MSU_Basketball Ohio State @OhioStateHoops Indiana @IndianaMBB West Virginia @WVUhoops Virginia @UVAMensHoops
     
    Paying a visit on the first day of the recruiting period suggests Parks is a priority target

    Well, if he’s somehow acquainted with Freddie, that has to be good. Not many better guys or representatives of the school than him.

    Other than an Eric Bossi mention almost in passing, saw nothing about it anywhere. Clowney didn’t even note it on his Twitter feed.

    Posting both of these because they’re pretty instructive for highlight clips if you watch them consecutively. The top 1 is  from Aug of ‘20, so pre-sophomore yr. it has some value in that it has some full sequences and shows warts rather than just highlight plays. The 2nd is from a couple of weeks ago. Bottom line: this kid absolutely exploded in a few months. Physically, athletically, skill-wise, Little looks like a completely different kid. It’s not unusual at that age, but this is an exceptional example. He’s a terrific athlete. He’s a specimen. Long and explosive. Really gets downhill aggressively. Certainly not enough to make a judgement, but the tool kit is apparent.

    Mark Few cited for blowing .12. I’m absolutely confident there are a few Uber’s in Coeur d’Alene and I’m pretty sure Few could swing one.

    Story on Rivals behind the paywall but Alex Lasley's teaser includes this quote:  "Indiana was my first college offer and so that makes it special. I was really happy."
    Alex also posted a picture and look who's in the background --  Freddie McSwain!!

    I believe the original plan was for something like 8 teams of 8-10 players with all  games played at the campus in Atlanta. But I  seem to remember reading something about them also playing some unofficial stuff against Prep schools. It was started by a couple of guys from William Morris, so I imagine player contracts require full representation. So they probably view most of these kids as just expensive lottery tickets. It makes some sense. If 1 of these lower level kids turns out to be Jarrett Culver, they recoup an awful lot from the kids who don’t pop.

    Depends how you define “cared.” Of course he understood that this job is a really big deal and strove, unsuccessfully, for success. But, I don’t think he viewed it with the sort of reverence that we do. I mean, Roy Williams left KANSAS for UNC. That’s freaking reverence. K couldn’t bring himself to leave Duke for the LAKERS. He reveres that place. Crean’s , “It’s Indiana” line?  That guy believed that. He viewed heritage programs differently. I think Archie just viewed it as a really nice promotion and he may have thought he understood the fishbowl he was diving into. Yeah, no. But IMO Archie’s biggest issue was his wiring. To coach at 1 of these gigs, you better either be 100% self-aware and able to adapt without questioning yourself, Woody is clearly there, or you better have an impenetrable vision of success, RMK. Archie obviously and publicly questioned himself and after 4 years we still couldn’t define an Archie player. No way to make that work.

    T.J. Clark, ‘22 SG from Georgia without, if 24/7 is to be believed, a single high major offer, signs with Overtime Elite. Really curious what a deal for a kid like that looks like.
