SAN ANTONIO – The Latest on the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament (All Times Local):
As Loyola Chicago Guardian Clayton Custer in high school and was against some players recruited by Kansas, coach Bill Self approached him after a camp game.
Custer himself said that the Jayhawks would not recruit him. But it was not because the kid from Kansas was not good enough.
"He told me, 'You're good enough to play at the KU, but we're too watchful now, and it would not make sense for you to come here," Custer said Friday. "I respect him 100 percent."
Self and Custer are both in the Final Four. The 11-placed Ramblers play Michigan in a semi-final before Big 12 Champion Kansas takes on Villanova.
Custer, the player of the Missouri Valley Conference of the Year, has an average of 13.2 points and 4.2 assists per game.
The Jayhawks led by AP All-America Guard Devonte Graham, the Big 12 Player of the Year. He was the second consecutive Kansas guard who was AP Big 12 Player of the Year, followed by Frank Mason of last season.
With the words, "Sister Jean is in the building," The day before the games in the Final Four is officially over.
Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt from Loyola-Chicago launched a full day of interviews on Friday and held for 15 minutes in front of a reporters filled room
The 98-year-old nun has become the sensation of March Madness and blends her wisdom the love of a super fan to the Ramblers – the 11-member Loyola-Chicago team that plays Michigan on Saturday in the next step on an unlikely run to the top of the national title.
Under the Wisdom of Sister Jean: Yes, God cares about basketball, and really about the college version more than the NBA. Why? "These young players are playing for their hearts and not for financial support," she says.
Sure, the Final Four teams are training the NCAA tournament the day before the San Antonio semi-final
