07:53 AM ET 04.03 | Even if he hasn't reviewed the Michigan game tape (and may not), Bill Self is plenty busy -- including confirming freshman guard Rio Adams' transfer. [Self] says he and his assistants are not finished in their pursuit of players. "Immediate impact," Self said Tuesday, asked what he's looking for on the recruiting trail. "We could probably sign a couple more." ... [The Jayhawks] have two scholarships left to give, three if freshman guard Ben McLemore heads to the NBA. Most expect the 6-foot-5 McLemore to declare for the draft sometime next week after the players conduct their end-of-the-season meetings with Self. Self on Tuesday confirmed the fact McLemore is on campus and in class following KU's season-ending loss.

Not a huge KU fan, and no real passion either way.....but man, you got to feel bad for these guys. Not sure I've ever seen a team control a game so well for so long & still find a way to lose and get bounced from the tournament.

Still not sure what happened........

McLemore figured things out about half way through the season. So that makes him NBA material. What a joke the NBA has become.

Btw,,, wassup w/ that Frazier kid going to SMU?? $$$$$???????????? And for the Gieco lizard talking about BBall:Jarell Martin (6-9, PF, LSU) ??? While there were several intriguing one on one match-ups, the play of Martin had everyone talking.

Dickerson left his vintage Trans Am for him...

I heard it was family reasons, but I think a better answer is LB was talking/$$$ with the AAU coach

Ok changed the battries in my sarcasm meter......9-3 is a c_h-i-tty in BR, right? No disrespect, but you think this team can contend?

Been a while since LUS wasn't in the NC discussion. Could be an interesting year in BR, esp if sheep molesters beat Gump early and open the door up in the SEC w
