by David Brox,

I want to send out a big time S/O to Tony G and John Blaze!!! for the time this morning on their morning show.  It was a real professional setup and all should know that I am the real Mr. One Take.  Moses Wyatt hooked up the interview to promote the game and I am never bashful about talking about SHUKC.  Check out the interview from this morning.

SHUKC Player Spotlight: Evan Brull (Bishop Ward)

by David Brox,

Evan "Rainbow" Brull from Bishop Ward wraps up his senior basketball career Monday night at KCKCC in our 2nd annual All Star game.  Time has gone by quickly as it seems not long ago I was watching film and spotted Brull knocking down tear drops from outside.  A lot of talent individually but not enough around him to create a winner at Bishop Ward.

Right now Brull is still on the market so I wanted to get a couple of things out there to promote this young man.  We had Evan on the radio show this year and you can skip to the 30:00 minute mark to hear that conversation with him.  Below that will be a look at his film for 2014.  Brull was the top priority for most teams Ward faced this year and he was still able to find success.  Check out the 2014 SHUKC All Star Evan Brull.

Owens and Harper make commitments

by David Brox,

News came out yesterday that seniors Tyler Owens and CJ Harper had made a commitment to play college basketball. 

Tyler Owens who came on strong the last portion of the season for the Pirates signs with Fort Scott CC.  He will join JT Bennett of Washington high school.

CJ Harper will stay home and play at KCKCC.  We spoke a few weeks ago about the signing of Joe Lendway so this is another big body coach Kelly Newton has pulled out of the area.  It is honestly quite refreshing to see local talent stay close and make a contribution at the next level. 

Congrats to these young men.  I look forward to following them at the next level.

BREAKING NEWS: Jeff Kreiling hired as Wyandotte Boys Basketball Coach

by David Brox,

Wyandotte has interviewed a number of candidates and has selected freshman coach Jeff Kreiling.  With everything I have heard about Coach Kreiling, I am supporting this hire.  He got glowing feedback during the season from his AD Rufus Black about the relationships he is building at Wyandotte, so it is a natural transition from a player perspective.

Weird story with Coach Kreiling is that I met him playing basketball at my gym.  So not only will he have the relationships but the ability on the floor to show the kids what to do.  Through out this season quality stories were being shared with me so I find the hire refreshing because there will be a younger individual that can relate a bit more with the kids at the school.

I was at the All Star game Friday night talking with head coach Dave Gonzales from Harmon.  Kreiling came up and he mentioned seeing him scouting his freshman team which shows his willingness to develop his coaching ability.

He met with the players today and said, "The announcement went very well and the players are excited about the road we are about to go down."

He continued, "We are looking to change things about this program for the better and begin having these young men involved in the community."

There were a lot of candidates and many of which I know personally.  I think very highly of all of them but I am not going to raise cane about this one.  We will have to wait and see the type of system he implements and to speak honestly how different it was from what we have seen the last 3 years.  The only cause of concern for me is if there is any intention to stay the course with the system in place now.  I will get to talk to Coach about this subject soon.

Congrats Coach Kreiling!  SHUKC wishes you good luck.
