Late Night 2009 with the Jayhawks!October 16th, 2009 by Lee Eldridge
Late Night tonight officially begins the 2009-10 season for the Kansas Jayhawks. As a local hoops fan, it’s pretty hard not to be excited about this team. They have talent. They have junior and senior leadership. They have depth. And they have experience.
Much has been written about recent troubles for the team, from the feud with the football team, to the DUI arrest of guard Brady Morningstar. Distractions? I doubt it.
And as a Jayhawk, there’s always one eye looking at the present, and one eye looking to the future. KU will have almost as much talent in the stands as they will on the floor. Expected to attend the Late Night festivities are:
#2 rated player Harrison Barnes, 6-7 small forward from Iowa
#4 rated player Josh Selby, 6-2 combo guard from Baltimore
#21 rated player Doron Lamb, 6-4 shooting guard from Virginia
Also slated to attend are Royce Woolridge, a 6-3 combo guard from Phoenix who has already orally committed to Kansas, Josiah Turner, a 6-3 junior guard from California, and J.P. Tokoto, a 6-5 soph from Wisonsin.
