    Glad he's doing this.

    Hopefully, he'll make the same type of his strides in his game after doing Athletes in Action that Levi did before his senior year. Competition will raise his game and the European style really suits Austin's game. If we can count on him being one of those Euro big man types who can deliver consistent outside shooting and a high free throw percentage, it would be a major upside to the 2011-12 season. We really need Austin to consistently be the player we have seen flashes of.

    "[FONT=Cambria, serif] The group will be coached by Baylor's director of basketball operations Tim Maloney."

    ?, not exactly Coach K. be nice if the makeup of the roster is such that AD gets some PT in a position where he's needed to score the ball and hit the glass. maybe that's the answer for AD, if Harris-T can give us a low post, maybe AD facing the basket a la a Euro big in a more high post position (insofar as that old timey terminology means much)....that's what he needs for a big, consistent sr. year. he's got a nice stroke. squares up, elevates, nice release.

    Heard from a co-worker of mine that Austin will be doing a basketball camp for kids in Killdeer, ND in a few weeks and a few of his teammates might be going with him. He didn't know who would be joining him (nor was he even 100% confident that teammates would be with him), but if you have kids in the area you might want to check in to that.

    Exactly what I had hoped from Dufault. If we see more confidence in his shooting and ball handling, he is going to be a very effective player for us this year.
