    I think he said he's strongly considering returning. But, yeah...GREAT news.

    Ashley's injury made that choice for him.

    If Ashley & Zeus both return next year, Korcheck is probably gone.

    Yeah what a loss that would be.. He can't even get minutes now... I'm sure there's atleast 3-4 division III schools dieing to take him in.. Why be apart of a championship caliber team when you can play for Grand Canyon state...

    Or Zach Peters could be gone if he hasn't performed and has attitude issues.

    This^^^^^^^ Korchek is more likely to stay, IMO.

    Gordon's gone. Get that out of your head now. And he should be. If everyone is saying lottery, then he'd be a fool not to. His biggest issue is his shooting. That can be fixed. Like Statman said, you can teach someone how to shoot/score, but you can't teach someone who can shoot/score to be an athlete (see McDermott, Doug). Gordon has all the intangibles. He's an NBA athlete, he has a relentless motor and he's a good kid who does things the right way. I'd absolutely want this kid on my team if I was an NBA coach/GM/owner.

    Yep.
    Just our #1 recruit and 7th overall recruit in the country in Stanley Johnson.
    No worries though.

    But this could be a blessing in disguise if you want to look at it that way.
    We would still have TJ/Zeus and possibly Rondae/Nick and then throw in Ashley coming back and hopefully the progression of Pitts with the additions of Stanley/PJC/Victor/Allen and we are going to continue to be very good next season.

    If everyone but Gordon is back, I don't see how we wouldn't be preseason #1!

    If AG gets back to where he was playing in December and early January, I'd agree he'd be lottery. But if he has a month like the last few games, he won't be...

    With Brash out, and RHJ starting in his place, don't be surprised to see Rondae in the draft with Gordon.

    Oh, I'm sure the media will find a way to over-hype Kentucky again. They haven't failed yet.

    I would be very surprised.

    This team is going to be dirtier than ever next year.

    If Jabari Parker stays it will be hard not to over hype them with Parker, Okafur, Jones, and Winslow.

    Honestly if you guys knew what type of injury he had, and you can pretty much figure it out based on the things they have said, you would have already known he was 99% coming back because no NBA GM would take a chance on an injury like that with out seeing if he could still go. IF there was then that was the 1% chance.
