    Cal needs to get thrown out of games more often.

    I thought is seemed very weird also, but I saw that article earlier and it claimed UK was in contact with him as soon as he hit the portal. I recall a couple weeks ago when Cal suspended the Freshman player, some fans inquired on WVU boards if he left, would WVU have a chance....and the common response was nobody thought Huggins would consider someone that left Cal not on the best of terms. Who knows, that was just fan opinions....maybe we think they are tighter than they actually are, or maybe they just consider this business.

    Not sure if you saw the tweet from Fran today...

    @franfraschilla

    I liked Oscar Tshiebwe as a kid at @WVUhoops. I am reasonably sure there was tampering going on but that would just make it a Tuesday in college basketball. Simply put, with Derek Culverís dramatic improvement there was little space inside. Skill level must improve at next stop.

    I hope he doesnít end up at UK, but if he does Cal will likely know exactly what happened from Huggins.

    The difference is we donít know what happened with Oscar as to why he left WVU. We can guess but for Huggins to slam the door on a return itís pretty telling. Fletcher OTOH it was on tv for everyone to see what the problem was.

    Where was this team all season?

    Tyrese Maxey broke a single game rookie scoring record set by Allen Iverson today too.

    Jeff Goodman is reporting Kentucky as the favorite for Oscar Tshiebwe.

    Adding him and Damion Collins next year would give UK a loaded frontcourt. Curious to see why he left Morgantown though.

    I do not think it is really about why he left, it is the process and who was involved. I think it is very likely his reason for leaving was he did not feel Huggins and WVU was optimizing his NBA stock, and if he feels that way I consider that fair. The thing that I think is important is the process and who was involved, and honestly I doubt we are ever 100% sure. After Fran Fraschilla went public with there was tampering, it was expected that he would have to be careful and slow walk to his destination as the process was being watched closely. Maybe it became too hot, and plans had to change significantly.

    If Cal was not at UK, there is part of me that would prefer him to end up at UK because I know he would get the development he needs if he recommits, and I think Miami would be a huge mistake on his part....but I do not like the fact that Cal is seeking to add him.

    You are kind of contradicting yourself. Cal being at UK is why Oscar is likely looking at going there (again) in order to get development.

    I donít like it either simply because I donít like how he left WVU. If the tampering part gets investigated Iím curious to see how long it takes before he gets ruled eligible. Could be Olivier Sarr all over again or worse.

    I do not expect him to be ineligible, and the tampering part had nothing to do with UK....so I expect if that is where he lands, the interest in anything that went on behind the scenes will pretty much go away. I think Oscar is a really good young man....he just needs to commit himself and get back in shape to play at the effort level he displayed as a Freshman....where he had the best motor I have ever seen from a big man in college, and that is not hyperbole. He went 100% the whole game. This year, it appeared his motor was leaking oil and operating with a blown head gasket. Huggs suggested it was related to him not working in the offseason and getting caught up too much in being a local celebrity....but maybe it was because he was considering leaving. I heard Norlander suggest on the CBS Eye on Basketball podcast this week that he had been hearing things for a while that Oscar may end up at another school....not sure what "a while" is defined as....

    I just saw the 2nd half. Brooks looked good. He is going to help them a lot. Still a long road to climb but if they can place really high in the SEC(at least 2nd or 3rd) they could still make the NCAA's.

    Oscar to UK became official last night.

    Anyone want to bet UK is going to Morgantown next year for the SEC-Texas Ten Challenge?
