Nice timing on Carleton's part — confirmation has been sent out that the Kansas Jayhawks' next game, after the little matter of that NCAA title game vs. Memphis tonight — will be on Aug. 30 vs. the Ravens in pre-season action.
From the perspective of a hoops junkie, of course, tonight Kansas is playing a U.S. version of Carleton. Memphis' system of dribble-drive motion bears more than a passing resemblance to Carleton's drive-and-kick game.
(Thanks to David Kent at Carleton.)
