That McKay kid from ISU is a player. Man, runs the floor with energy - like a J Noah jr. He's killing Kansas.

I was thinking that myself - Cliff would be our main guy in the post and he's riding the bench at KU.
KU fans are bewildered as to why he doesn't see more time on the floor as well. Bill Self doesn't trust him for some reason.

No Cliff Alexander entire second half.
He was in for about 30 seconds before being pulled for Hunter Mickelson, who averages 6 minutes and 2 points per game. Kid is deep in Self's dog house for some reason.

He's not a 1 and done.. He's projected to go 60-70th as of right now.
Key words are "as of right now." The way he's playing, he'll be a first-round pick before the season ends. Kid's a stellar young player with a great mix of skills and size at a key position.

He's playing well, but it's not good enough to leave after one year. He's not good enough to play as a pg in the NBA yet (his assist to turnover ratio is bad), and his shooting percentage and size isn't good enough to go in the first or early second round as a sg.

Watched most of the isu KU second half and never saw cliff get hardly any playing time, let alone any paint touches. Coupled with a KU loss and there wasn't much to complain about.

Have to think he'd be our starting PF right now. Oh well.

So nice to see ISU take down Kansas. Played well all game (and had to) to win.
Hoiberg does a great job

Search "Cliff Alexander" on Twitter and observe KU's fan base irate about Cliff's lack of tic.

A lot of Illinois flavor on that ISU team. We offered McKay and he would have come if Chew would have stayed, instead as been discussed he followed Chew to Marquette and then transferred to ISU. Nader drew interest late in recruiting period from Weber and ultimately went to NIU and transferred to Cyclones. And of course Morris said he wanted to play badly in the B!G and even named us in his final 3 even though we bypassed him and didn't offer.

Talk about a nice piece to have now. Morris is good.

Orange Krush Class of 2013
Stanford, CA
Stanford had a great team win over UConn, mostly due to a 48-24 (!!) rebounding margin, which was huge since UConn hit 10 of 20 threes. Stanford had 18 ORebs vs. 20 DRebs for UConn, so they were essentially rebounding every other missed shot.

Boatright was being guarded by Anthony Brown, who's about 6 inches taller, and only managed to score 7 but also had 7 assists and only 2 turnovers. Boatright also did a pretty good job denying Randle the ball in the second half when UConn switched up defensive assignments. Randle was his usual self, with 23 on 50% shooting, plus 5 assists and 4 steals.

Overall, good game to watch. Boatright and Randle traded pull-up threes early in the second half but otherwise didn't face off directly a ton. Stanford's rebounding edge was ultimately the deciding factor in the game.

There has been a Hunter Mickleoson sighting. He was so good at Arkansas that it has baffled me why he doesn't play more. Look for him to be a coveted fifth year transfer if Self keeps this up.
