    NKY kids are playing great basketball in college this year.

    I want kids that are better than "good enough". I want players at NKU that are "good enough" to be playing at UC, X, OSU, WVU, and etc. but find themselves at Northern.
    I several NKY kids playing great D1 ball. Williams, Bolden, McDonald and Wilson.

    They haven't won the Horizon League yet. Don't celebrate before league play even begins.

    I very much stand by my statement. To be a good and competitive team in Division 1, NKU needs to be bigger and better than a team of NKY all-stars.
