Who knows when we will see another cat like Frank Mason in a KU uniform. Rock on Frank. You are a legend.

Agree. Graham is good but I don't think he will elevate to Mason's status.

Wont have to ...by mid season Newman and Garrett will be our guards on the floor. Newman was #7 on Rivals...and Garrett was 35 and 6ft 6. Graham was 80 something. And Preston will be about 6ft 10 and an 8 on Rivals. Got some wide shoulders and excellent post moves. Will be far superior to light lunch Lucas. That plus Dok. Next year's team will be better and deeper.

I don't know about that. If you really stop and think about it, what this team accomplished, could be awhile before we have a team this good again. This was the best team we have had since probably maybe that team in the late 90's that lost to arizona. This team was that good.

They just fell short. But that does not erase what they accomplished.

Damn michhawk are you that dense. We will have a real front court with Dok as a real rim protector. Video of Billy Preston depicts him as Lucas size with superior post moves. Newman is 6ft 3 and rumor has it he might be as good as Frank. Cunliffe and Garrett are top Rival 30 guards taller than 6 ft 5. This year's team was thin and had a awful front court. Over achieved in the regular season.

Actually an E8 was a great accomplishment for our under manned squad. Believe me next season will be as good or better considering the depth and bigger guards. Plus Bill ain't done recruiting yet. Always a late surprise of a recruit by old Bill. Duval has yet to sign as well as Bamba.

I agree with MICHHAWK. Frank was the man, and all this talk about size, he is 5' 10", so like I have been telling women for years, size don't matter.

Phog, I have to disagree. Graham will be in the starting lineup. Who cares he was rated #80. Played way bigger than that.

Nice career. Europe bound for a while for $$$. Any time in the NBAD will be a waste of time and loss of $$$.

A LOT has changed in college ball the last twenty years. That '97 would have crushed this year's team. Great team this year in the context of today's game. This was not an all-time great KU team.

If JJ Barea can play in the NBA, Frank Mason can. Frank's got everything he needs to be an NBA point guard.

Because of his size Mason may have to prove himself to the NBA, but I believe he can make it.

If Sherron Collins cannot play in the NBA, neither can Frank Mason. 5'8 guards are a dime a dozen. Mason was always lazy on defense, not good if your an NBA coach watching the other team score.

There's no reason why Mason couldn't make his way in the association if given the chance. One of the better players leading the CeltIcs for Brad Stevens is 5'9" (5'8") Isaiah Thomas. Strong and quick like Mason. Both like and can play thru contact. Both are good shooters with an obvious uncomparable difference being nba vs collegiate 3pt range. Mason would of course need to work on his defensive skills. But I really think someone will end up wanting to see how he would fare in a D league scenario.

Naismith POY Award will be announced on Sunday at the Atlanta Tipoff Club. He won the AP POY today which is on par with the Naismith award.

Collins had a weight problem and poor work ethic. Mason doesn't have these.
