ITP: Transfers, Scholarships, Final Four, and Nonsense

Mid-April shows may not be stacked with basketball content, but the entertainment value isn’t minimized on Inside the Paint.

Inside the Paint logo.The Jayhawks have four open scholarships, and regardless of what happens the rest of the recruiting period, Kansas is likely to look at transfers to fill the holes in its 2016-17 roster. Ryan Landreth and Joshua Brisco break down some of the potential wings that could transfer to KU, and what areas of the roster Bill Self should focus on strengthening for next year. The Big 12 will be weaker, but Kansas’ non-conference schedule isn’t getting any softer after this week’s NBA decisions from around the country.

We then recap the Final Four and the national championship game, as the Villanova Wildcats were crowned NCAA champions after one of the wildest title games in recent memory. We also announce the final results of the Rock Chalk Blog Bracket Challenge.

One final season three episode of Inside the Paint will drop following the commitment of Josh Jackson. We’ll break down what that entails and re-visit our pre-season prop bets from November. Daniel will also pay up for his awful Jamari Traylor/Cheick Diallo minutes bet. When will this episode drop? That depends on Jackson. It’ll probably happen next week.
