KU men’s basketball nonconference schedule packs a punch

Kansas men's basketball annually plays one of the toughest nonconference schedules in the nation and the 2017-18 slate is no exception. Six of KU's 12 non-league opponents advanced to postseason play in 2016-17.

Rose, a Detroit native like Jackson, brought up the most promising Kansas basketball talent in the draft during a broadcast of the show he co-hosts, “Jalen & Jacoby.” And Rose did so while discussing whether Boston, owner of the No. 1 overall pick, will draft Fultz, the versatile guard who spent his one-and-done season at Washington, or trade the pick in a move to land an established all-star.

"It's my commitment that once we have signed the youngster, that we're committed to him as long as he behaves himself. I accept a youngster that comes into our program as making a similar commitment with a handshake and obviously a signed piece of paper. I've always said a youngster is free to leave, but I'm not going to release the youngster," Snyder said, via Kansas State's Rivals' site.

Mr. Ed says: This is turning into a PR disaster for K-State.

Keeping the age minimum benefits both the league and the NCAA. Extending the age minimum to 20 can't be the answer, though. If anything, you'll have more players opting for the international route in an effort to make money.
