- While widely viewed as headed to Indiana, he continues to say in interviews that he is going through the process and will take multiple visits. It appears that it will at least be a couple months before he announces anything beyond possible list cuts.
- He is showing a knack for making clutch shots. For the second EYBL session in a row he hit a game winner.
- He indicated over the weekend that Georgia was contacting him. This should come as no surprise as Tom Crean likely had relationships here prior to being fired.
- There was a lot of commentary over the weekend of an evolving game.
KEION BROOKS, JR.
