I met Manute Bol on the Queens College campus years ago and found him to be an engaging and delightful individual.

2018 Bol Bol and 2017 four-star Mitchell Ballock will watch Kansas host Oklahoma tonight according to Matt Scott of 247Sports.

The son of former NBA player Manute Bol, the younger Bol is a 6-11, 190-pound power forward out of Mission (Kan.) Bishop Miege High School. He is ranked No. 12 in the 247Sports Composite.




They couldn't have seen a better game between Kansas and OK - Triple overtime. And to show you how important foul shooting is - with the score tied in regulation time and a couple of seconds left Oklahoma's center, Lattin, missed a one and one.

Jack I mentioned that game on " The Players we missed out on" responding to a statement about Diallo. What a game.

Yes with 2.5 seconds left, Kadeem Lattin (grandson of David Lattin, the starting Center on the 1966 Texas Western team who beat Kentucky for the NCAA Basketball Championship) had a one and one that could have won it but missed the first free throw. He did have a couple of big buckets in OT but damn those free throws.

SJU85, thanks for the reference to David Lattin. When I heard/saw Lattin's name last night, I immediately thought of Texas Western's "Big Daddy" (along with Willie Worsley, Willie Cager, and Nevil "Tool" Shed) and wondered if he was related to him ... but I was thinking along the lines of Kadeem being his son, not his grandson. Have that many years gone by? (Don't answer!)

Any chance Chris' real name is Bol ?

"He is still quite skinny and had to develop his post game, but it’s easy to see why Kansas, St. John’s (head coach Chris Mullin was a close friend of Bol’s father), Oklahoma, Iowa, Kansas State and Creighton have been in and why the Red Storm, Sooners and Jays have already offered scholarships."
