The Cheick has cleared! KU not only picked up a trophy in Maui over Thanksgiving weekend, but the Jayhawks also now have their top recruit available starting immediately.
Cheick Diallo is cleared and eligible to play in the Jayhawks’ next game, which takes place tomorrow in Allen Fieldhouse. What should we expect from the freshman in his first few games? How should we expect the minutes to change over the course of Diallo’s season?
Over Thanksgiving break, the Jayhawks added a new piece of hardware when they won the Maui Invitational. An impressive win over a top-20 Vanderbilt team nailed down Kansas’ title, but there were a number of players to be impressed with in KU’s time in paradise. Wayne Selden and Frank Mason won tournament co-MVP honors, but it was another player that caught Bill Self’s eye.
We go through the rest of our segments, answering #AskRCB questions, recapping recent Jayhawk performances in the NBA, and previewing Tuesday’s game against Loyola in Lawrence.
