  1. UK is hard at work building their 2019 class. We already know about their top frontcourt targets in this class, including Matthew Hurt, Vernon Carey and James Wiseman. However https://www.kentuckywildcatscenter.com/isaiah-briscoe-jersey-c-8.html, there’s another rising big man that could be catching UK’s eye. Kofi Cockburn. In an interview with Flo Hoops, Cockburn said he hopes to hear from big name schools like UK going forward. Cockburn recently picked up offers from Kansas and Tennessee but said he wants to hear from the “blue blood schools” Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina. Back in January https://www.kentuckywildcatscenter.com/jonny-david-jersey-c-6.html, Adam Zagoria reported that UK was interested in Cockburn. The 6 11, 248 pound center from Christ The King NY is ranked 31st in 2019 by Rivals, while ESPN has him at 38th. He’s been https://www.kentuckywildcatscenter.com/mychal-mulder-jersey-c-7.html one of the biggest risers in 2019 since last fall, partly because he’s gotten his weight down after tipping the scales at 300 pounds. Cockburn has actually been the top rebounder in the Nike EYBL at 11.2 boards per game. Among the many schools to offer him thus far include Kansas, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Oregon Dillon Pulliam Jersey, UCLA and Virginia Tech. If Cockburn keeps up his big spring, it will be hard for UK not to offer him a scholarship. Oh, and can you imagine having Cockburn and Hurt in the same frontcourt? Make it happen, Cal. Here are some recent highlights of Cockburn at the Nike EYBL
  2. The Kansas Jayhawks currently have one scholarship left to offer. Joe Cremo, a graduate transfer from Albany is who Bill Self wants it to go. The Kansas Jayhawks are not hurting for talent. They aren’t hurting for depth either, unlike last season. In fact, it feels pretty good to be associated with the Kansas basketball program these days. What the Jayhawks do need https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/sam-cunliffe-jersey-c-3.html, if anything, is a good player who can shoot from the perimeter. Enter Joe Cremo, a graduate transfer from Albany. In a recent interview with ESPN Radio, he mentioned that he wanted to take a chance on himself. After three straight years of winning basketball at Albany they never were able to make the big dance. He simply wants to make that happen his senior year. The Kansas Jayhawks may be the team he finally makes it with. Cremo is the definition of a good player who can shoot the three. He made 46 of his shots from beyond the arc last season, and he’s a career 42 shooter from outside. He’s already made a visit to the defending national champion Villanova Wildcats https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/frank-mason-iii-jersey-c-1.html, and Kansas appears to be the other big program he’s looking at. Fit is huge for me https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/lagerald-vick-jersey-c-2.html, a chance where I’ll be able to have a big role and play. Playing time is big for me. While Kansas doesn’t need Cremo per say, they sure could use him. Bill Self would love to have that perimeter guy he can count on. That isn’t to say that the new guys coming in can’t shoot the ball from outside, they just aren’t known for it. It isn’t their specialty. There is no doubt this kid can shoot the money ball from all over the court. Dwight Coleby Jersey He may not quite be the defender or ball handler that the Jayhawks usually go after in a shooting guard, but Cremo has a little bit of Jeff Boschee in him.
  3. Malachi Flynn offered up some surprising news the final week of March when Washington State’s starting point guard announced he’d be leaving the Cougars with two years of eligibility remaining. Flynn’s actual destination shouldn’t be as much of a surprise. On Monday, Flynn, who just completed his sophomore season with the Cougars, announced he’d complete his career at Mountain West power San Diego State, which has only missed out on the NCAA Tournament twice since 2010. Flynn will have to sit out one season per NCAA rules, but will have two years of eligibility remaining. The sunny, sandy shores of San Diego have been a popular landing spot for Cougar basketball players that have elected to leave the Palouse for one reason or another. Flynn becomes the third WSU player in eight years to leave for the Aztecs, joining former guard Xavier Thames https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/nigel-williamsgoss-jersey-c-5.html, who left in 2010, and center Valentine Izundu, who got his release from the Cougars in the spring of 2016 after a lengthy dispute with the school that surrounded Izundu’s recruitment and potential tampering allegations by SDSU. A native of Tacoma, Flynn averaged 15.8 points per game and 4.3 assists per game as a sophomore and started 30 of the 31 game he appeared in after logging 30 appearances and 30 starts as a true freshman. It’s possible Flynn piqued SDSU’s interest long before he decided to leave the Cougars. One of his productive games came in the early stages of the season against the Aztecs in the championship game of the Wooden Legacy at Cal State Fullerton. Flynn scored 24 points on 7 of 16 shooting and 6 of 11 from 3 point range to lead the Cougars to a 93 86 win. He also had five rebounds and six assists, compared to just one turnover, in the game. According to the San Diego Union Tribune, Flynn, upon announcing his decision to transfer, was contacted by a number of high profile schools including Baylor, Texas A M and Creighton. The Spokesman Review previously reported that Gonzaga showed interest in the former Bellarmine Prep star Przemek Karnowski Jersey, but GU’s interest cooled off late in the process and Flynn never visited the school. At Gonzaga, he would’ve been set up to become the Bulldogs’ starting point guard in two years. He’ll have a similar opportunity at SDSU, where Devin Watson is entering his senior season as the Aztecs’ floor general, leaving the position open when Flynn becomes eligible in 2019 20. The former Cougars have had mixed success on the Pacific Coast. Thames was only a part time starter when he arrived at SDSU, but left as a two time All Mountain West selection who earned the conference player of the year award 2014. Thames also took the Aztecs to three NCAA Tournaments 2012 14 . Izundu grad transferred to SDSU in 2016, but even getting his release from WSU was a rocky process. WSU coach Ernie Kent initially denied Izundu’s transfer because he claimed the Aztecs had contacted his player before the season was over – essentially, an act of “tampering.” After a WSU committee heard, and subsequently rejected, Izundu’s appeal https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/jordan-mathews-jersey-c-4.html, Kent lifted the restriction and allowed the center to contact SDSU. Izundu played 16.9 minutes per game in his lone season with the Aztecs and scored 2.5 ppg to go with 3.3 rpg. SDSU failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament that season. Flynn is one of five non seniors to have left the Cougars since the end of the 2017 18 season. Two more scholarship guards, Jamar Ergas and Milan Acquaah https://www.gonzagabulldogsjersey.com/johnathan-williams-jersey-c-3.html, have also announced plans to transfer, and it’s expected that previously suspended junior KJ Langston won’t be back next year. Walk on guard TJ Mickelson has also left the program. Standout junior forward Robert Franks declared for the NBA Draft without an agent, but reportedly wasn’t invited to the NBA Combine, which may increase the likelihood of returning to the Cougars next season.
  4. After a very quick turnaround from the NCAA Women’s Basketball season to the WNBA Draft https://www.dukebluedevilsjersey.com/amile-jefferson-jersey-c-10.html, two Duke Women’s Basketball players were selected on Thursday night. They were the best two players in Blue Devil uniforms all season. They left lasting legacies in Durham. They are not professionals. Lexie Brown and Rebecca Greenwell are off to the WNBA after being drafted on Thursday night. The Connecticut Sun drafted Lexie Brown with the No. 9 pick in the 2018 WNBA Draft. After averaging 19.4 points per game, Brown is headed to one of the top teams in the WNBA. In her two seasons at Duke, Brown put up 18.9 points per game and Duke and was a transcendent player for the program. The Sun went 21 13 last season and lost in the playoffs to the Phoenix Mercury. In the Third Round of the WNBA Draft, the Washington Mystics selected Rebecca Greenwell. Greenwell averaged 13.9 points per game at Duke and for her career, she averaged 14.9 points per game. In the 2016 17 season https://www.dukebluedevilsjersey.com/marques-bolden-jersey-c-9.html, Greenwell was a First Team All ACC Players Lance Thomas Jersey, but this season she was a Second Team All ACC Player. The Washington Mystics were also a WNBA Playoff team last season, finishing 18 16. The Mystics got swept in their playoff series by the Minnesota Lynx https://www.dukebluedevilsjersey.com/frank-jackson-jersey-c-8.html, the eventual WNBA Champions, three games to zero. The WNBA teams report to training camp in late April, with the preseason starting in early May. Want your voice heard? Join the Ball Durham team! Rebecca Greenwell and the Washinton Mystics get their season underway on May 20, while Lexie Brown and the Connecticut Sun also start their season on May 20. The first time Brown and Greenwell square off is on June 3 when the Sun visit the Mystics
