In my lifetime we have been to 9 Final 4's. Winning 2 titles and playing in the title games 4 other times. Was this loss to Nova our most stinging loss of them all?

Not for me. The fact nova shot the ball so well from 3..in a record setting fashion... and they got up 22-4 early took a lot of the sting out. We got beat by a superior team. It hurts a lot more when you get beat by a team you feel like you should have beaten. I never felt that way tonight.

I suppose your right. I don't like to see this program get embarrased on this big of stage. I hope this motivates the remaining players to kick some tail next season even more.

I think this team exceeded expectations. Who thought this team was final four material half way through the season. Not me. One of Bill Self's better coaching jobs to make it this far with so little talent/depth compared to some of our past teams.

Compared to our football team and coaching staff the basketball program is practically NBA ready.

Oh thats the cop out??? Comparing them to our football tean. If Saben failed in big games like Self Bama would have fired him long ago....Just think about that...

I agree with each of these posters. What happened last night was an anomaly for both teams. It's like we were paddling around the pool below a dam when the dam broke. The only choice is to go with the flow. Fortunately for us, regardless who leaves to go pro, our roster next year will IMO be one of the deepest and most talented we have ever seen wearing KU uniforms.

"Need" can be defined in numerous ways, depending on perspective. My perspective tells me that none of the three prime suspects, Dok, Vick, and Malik are currently positioned to maximize their draft potential. Of those three Malik's situation is the most perplexing. I could see that one going both ways. If he stays he is in prime position to be our primary leader next year, with accompanying opportunity for national accolades to enhance his draft status to a much higher level than will be the case this year. If he declares I am confident he will get drafted, but relegated to a repeat of his collegiate resume in that he will essentially be redshirted and have to earn his way up the pro ladder over a period of time while earning nba minimum scale.
Dok is not close to ready for NBA competition. Not physically nor in skill set. IMO he needs 2 more years. When he is 20 he'll be as ready as he can be.
Not convinced Vick has the physicality to ever excel at nba level. He should concentrate on getting a good degree under scholarship before, not after, he jumps into the pool seeking nba riches.
Having said all that, the way mindsets tend to run these days I'm not convinced any one of those 3 will stay at KU another year.
Scholarships...if I understand it correctly KU is currently out. If any of the above 3 players stay we are over limit, while still hoping to woo Romeo Langford. Very interesting situation.

None of the 3 are currently sniffing the NBA mock drafts.

nova's point guard is just amazing, a pro playing college ball. and he's surrounded with a boatload of talent coached by a future hof.

graham will be missed. kid is a leader extraordinaire.

I agree with everyone about the exceeded expectations. In January I didn't think there was any way this team would even win the conference, let alone go to the Final 4.

This team gave us something we will always remember - the record #14. They were under-manned and fought hard and got it done.
