Phoenix, Sykes Ready for More NBA Attention

The UW-Green Bay Phoenix saw a drought of 18 years without a player drafted by an NBA team come to an end last month, when the Phoenix Suns picked Alec Brown in the 2nd round, 50th overall.



The wait could be much shorter for the next Phoenix player to be drafted.



Reigning Horizon League Player of the Year Keifer Sykes caught the attention of NBA scouts last season while they were on-hand to watch Brown.

Cole cherishes time with James

After enduring about 15 minutes of my questions about LeBron James – all of which he answered fully and politely and thoughtfully – Norris Cole finally had enough and showed that even guys who play the point can swat a shot.



“That’s a whole lot of LeBron questions, how about something on me?” the Miami Heat guard out of Dunbar High said with the thinnest of smiles as he looked out into a gym that not only was filled with grade school basketball players, but included his dad, Norris Sr. and, in the distance, four women, all of whom had taught or worked with him from his kindergarten days right through high school.

Alec Brown hits the NBA

Unlike most college graduates, University of Wisconsin–Green Bay alumnus Brown was recently drafted to the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA), as the 50th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft.

Phoenix Suns' Alec Brown: In the Fast Lane

At the 2014 NBA Draft, the Phoenix Suns selected Alec Brown in the second round, pick number 50, out of UW-Green Bay.



The 7'1" 231-pound center came into the draft with a lot of things to improve on, as do most young, baby-faced prospects. Weight, strength, weight, and especially weight were out in front in terms of elements that are most critical in order for him to have a plausible chance at cracking an NBA rotation. Something that might allow him an opportunity in the league down the road? The kid can stroke it.

Working his way up

Kendrick Perry has dazzled Youngstown State University's basketball fans more than a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Walt Disney World.



The 6-foot shooting guard from Ocoee, Fla., grew up in the shadow of nearby Orlando and the Disney mecca. Now, Perry wants to mystify the mid-major doubters as he starts play today in Orlando Pro Summer League with his hometown Orlando Magic.

VU's Drew has a day to remember at the Cell

Valparaiso University men's basketball coach Bryce Drew can take solace in knowing few, if any, major leaguers can hit a 23-foot shot at the buzzer to win an NCAA Tournament game.



"There you go. There you go," Drew said, nodding in agreement.



That should make his one-bounce ceremonial first pitch before Saturday's White Sox-Mariners game a bit easier on the ego.
