    The best quote:

    I think most of us were rightly skeptical of the practice reports we heard on King back in October. He certainly lived up to them.

    Congrats George!

    King's performance on the boards the last month plus has been my favorite development this season. Much deserved GK!

    I think GK is starting to get "it" when it comes to the level of effort it takes to be successful at this level. He is going to be very good for us over the next two years.

    He played some good defense during the 2nd half of the Arizona game to. Put a body on Trier and flat out stopped him from getting in the lane towards the end. Needs to be a lot more consistent, but there were small signs the light bulb was starting to come on.

    Well deserved honor for King.

    Comparing this season to the one he had as a true frosh, his game is night & day different/ better.

    Obviously put in a ton of work.

    Well deserved. He really made the most of the Redshirt year. That has to be hard to keep bringing it every day knowing that you are not going to see the court. This is a great form of recognition for his royal highness.

    Could he be the Carlon Brown of our conference tourney this year? Stay tuned.

    I've been saying that Fortune could be that guy. King hasn't slumped like Brown did prior to the tourney. Also, Fortune has a history of stepping up big in conference tourneys (Big East at Providence).

    He has played better lately, just needs to find his shot and we're good to go.

    Well deserved GK. With your attitude and work ethic, the sky's the limit.

    Off season hint: handle, penetration and develop your passing eye. And how come nobody on this team uses the glass except for Jelly? And the bounce pass alone would cut our turnovers in half.

    Live from Vegas: King looked insulted by players that tried to guard him yesterday.
