ReedStar: The Legacy

I believe Brady has indeed been on the roster since 1975, but it's Senior Night at last. Some great memories, particularly his halftime buzzer-beater vs. Mizzou last year. In conference this year, he's been unbelievable, and we need that to continue.

Reed has been a rock for us. Beginning late last season and continuing through this year, he and Marcus have been our most consistent players. It seems like every time we've needed a big three in a big moment, he's nailed one -- and recently he's shown a propensity for finishing strong at the rim, too. And if that weren't enough, he's an Academic All-American.

How cool is it to have two local boys leading a potential championship squad?

I'm not forgetting Mario Little either, though there are things I'd like to forget. He's getting minutes now, and I wouldn't be surprised if he makes a little noise for us in March.

Also, as an afterthought... If we win tonight vs. A&M, we clinch yet another conference title. Just in case you haven't been paying attention.


  1. From Brady's speech:

    "Coach Self ... people look at you like a father figure. You are more like a brother to me because we are about the same age."

  2. Best line of the night.

  3. While we're on the subject of Brady, he didn't have the best game vs. Mizzou, but UFR has determined that his conference assist-to-turnover ratio is the best in Big 12 history. No. 2 is Aaron Miles in 2002.

    (And I guess those records can never be broken, right? Big 12 RIP)

    Speaking of the Big 12, WE WON IT AGAIN! That's pretty good, yes? (Anyone out there?)

    Granted, it took another big collapse by UT for us to catch up. But generally speaking if you go 14-2, that's going to win it for you.
