Bedore gives his observations on the KU team's performance during their Canadian trip player by player. He loved Aldrich:
The 6-foot-11 sophomore appears primed for a breakout season. A rebounding machine, he grabbed 18 rebounds versus McGill, eight against Carleton and seven in just 13 minutes against Ottawa. He had two of the most exciting plays of the trip, catching a lob from Brady Morningstar and jamming to open the Carleton game and plucking a midcourt steal and racing in for an vicious dunk again versus Carleton. Pretty agile stuff for a 250-pounder.
All his write-ups are pretty optimistic making the evaluation a bit too rosey.
