Is it too late to add Demetric Williams. He played well in the scrimmage on the 17th
"I not sure that I've ever been around a more competitive player or young man than Fred VanVleet. I like to win more than 99.9% of the people in this world, but he may top me." -- Gregg Marshall 12/23/13 :peaceful:

A physician called into a radio show and said: "That's the definition of a stool sample."
Morris is also motivated to play his best in front of Wichita State fans, who created a GoFundMe last week to help raise money to offset the expenses for Morris and his family because Taylor was not covered by insurance. The GoFundMe has raised more than $7,000 in a little more than a week.
“I’m so appreciative of that,” Morris said. “It was incredible to see so many people in this community that wanted to support me and my family. That’s a testament to the kind of people Wichita State fans are. It’s just one big family everywhere you go. I love every single one of them.”
He hopes to repay them with three wins at Koch Arena this week to send the Aftershocks through to the quarterfinals in Chicago.
A lot of grown up MEN making comments there. It is one of the best things about being the passionate fans most of us are here....these student athletes grow on us, and we take ownership of them in a philosophical type way and we want them to go out in the world and succeed, and it sounds like they are getting to do that and enjoy experiences that will last them a lifetime.
Get ready for some "What the hell is going on"... as the "Elam Ending" will be in play during the TBT Tournament.
So, what exactly is the Elam Ending?
"...At the first dead ball after the 4:00 mark of the fourth quarter (or second half), the game clock is shut off and a Target Score is set equal to the leading team's score plus seven points. Then play resumes, without a game clock but still with a shot clock, until one team matches or exceeds the Target Score. So for example, let’s say the Team A was leading Team B 88-78 at the first dead ball under 4:00, the Target Score would be 95. The Team B would still have a chance to come back without fouling, while Team A couldn’t just stall and try to run the clock out; it would still have to score to win.
Elam said the primary aims of the format are to:
-Eliminate/reduce deliberate fouling by the trailing defense
-Eliminate/reduce stalling by the leading offense
-Eliminate/reduce rushed/sloppy possessions by the trailing offense
-Provide greater hope for late comebacks
-Provide more memorable game-ending moments .."

Kung Wu say: "If Chuck Norris had a coach, his name would be Gregg Marshall."
Word on the street is that there was some issue with the paperwork, and the NCAA has somehow managed to suspend him for the first three games of the tournament.
I also heard that the NCAA was quite confused when it got an "anonymous" tip from Lawrence Kansas that the aftershocks are receiving impermissible benefits and a request to have them banned from "postseason" play
