Willie Reed headed back to St. Louis

Willie Reed is no longer seeking a transfer to Kansas State.

The 6-foot-9, 220-pound junior forward, who was actively trying to enroll at the school in October after being suspended from the St. Louis basketball team due to allegations of sexual assault made by a fellow student against him and a teammate, is now attempting to rejoin the Billikens.

“He decided that he wanted to go back to SLU and has reapplied,” said Reed’s father, Will, “and is now waiting to hear back from them.”

The possibility of Willie Reed joining the Wildcats appeared real in late October, when he attended Madness in Manhattan and had a sit-down meeting with K-State coach Frank Martin.

In late October Will Reed told the Eagle: “We anticipate him being a student at K-State within the next 60 days.”

Now Willie Reed is hoping to once again become a student-athlete at St. Louis by Friday. A product of Kansas City’s Bishop Miege High School, he averaged 12.4 points and 7.9 rebounds as a sophomore.

Juevol Myles moves into playing rotation

One of the recent surprises on Kansas State’s basketball team has been the quality play of Juevol Myles.

The sophomore point guard has come off the bench in back-to-back games and scored a combined 17 points and helped his teammates with five assists.

Not bad considering he seemed destined for mop-up duty in his first season with the Wildcats before Christmas. Myles, a junior-college transfer, has proven himself capable of knocking down outside shots and bringing the ball up court.

Fans saw those skills for the first time against North Florida, when Myles made three three-pointers and scored 12 points in just 17 minutes of action. His teammates saw them much sooner.
