Just received a text message from my buddy Jeff Goodman at foxsports.com. He took part in the NCAA’s mock selection of the field of 65, and he told me that, based on the current information, Kansas State was not included in the field.
The Wildcats were on the bubble, but the last ones in were Davidson, which is a bit surprising but not really when you consider how few victories of consequence Stephen Curry and Co. actually have, UNLV and Siena.
He said the entire bracket and his story, I believe, will be posted in the next few hours. That should be good stuff – Goodman does great work.
Also, hope you all read the fascinating update at gopowercat.com about DeMarcus Cousins. Good to see the connection between Cousins and Wally Judge mentioned. Because I’ve been teased here in the past for putting information out there and then when a kid doesn’t commit – Witherspoon, Kadji, etc. – it’s suddenly my fault. It’s fun for everyone, really. Anyway, when I was in Miami, I spoke a bit with Bruce Shingler, who is living with Michael Beasley and helping the Heat rookie on a daily basis in his ongoing transition the NBA.
