Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 6.21.12

NEW ORLEANS, LA - APRIL 02: Thomas Robinson #0 of the Kansas Jayhawks shoots over Terrence Jones #3 of the Kentucky Wildcats in the first half in the National Championship Game of the 2012 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on April 2, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Bradley Beal rises, Jared Sullinger falls in NBA Mock Draft 3.0 - Sam Amick - SI.com
Latest mock draft has Robinson slipping. I do think that Beal and MKG have tremendous upside. Barnes is a little more concerning. Definitely a high potential type player but he never seemed to have the drive during college. Thomas Robinson has a competitive nature second to none in my opinion.

Misc.

June 19 marks 26th anniversary of the death of Maryland star Len Bias | CollegeBasketballTalk
I've always heard how good Bias was but I wasn't around or aware enough to remember it. Anybody here remember seeing him play and was he indeed MJ before MJ or Lebron before Lebron?
