    Shooting wise, his stats were fine from last year. He does need more strength. Quickkness is not a problem. If he could hot three pointers, that would be a huge plus.

    This encapsulates Bubu's place on the roster and at the root of his motivation:
    It means something to him to be a Cyclone.

    Decent off-season profile ... although the plural of syllabus is "syllabi." :skeptical:

    In the Cap City League this year, he seems to be bigger now than he was during the season, but not slower. Has he been trying to beef up?

    Why is every paragraph in that article one line long?

    There's an article about Bubu somewhere. I'll try to link it.

    It amazes me when people try to tell me he wont be on scholarship for his senior year. Yes i understand that scholarships are renewed every year and that he was once a walk on; but honestly why would he be on scholarship for a year and a half and then have the scholarship taken away when he is a RS Senior with the most experience at the PG of anyone on our team. It's like saying that Ejim won't be on scholarship his senior year. It's just dumb.

    It's not like that but I tend to agree with the fact that he may still have one.

    Ha. It's the best example i could come up with since he is the only other senior that year as of now, and also he has about the same amount of experience as Bubu.

    True, but Melvin was recruited as a scholarship player. The only real equivalent for a scholarship guy losing their scholarship and paying their own way is called Louisville.

    Keep in mind that he will graduate in Spring 2013. if he is not on scholarship in Fall 2013 do people think that he will pay for his education just because he wants to play basketball for ISU? He could also transfer like Jake Anderson and be eligible to play right away.

    Bubu will be on scholarship senior year and I would put money on that. Fred is expecting a big jump in production from him and I think he can male that jump.

    Agree with the line in the article - he needs to knock down more shots - he does this, his drive game will be more effective.

    Its actually a great example. Bubu came in with McD, but earned an ISU BB scholarship in Fred's eyes. That scholarship is now 'permanent', just like Ejim's.

    It's not "permanent." It's awarded for this year specifically. Next year will probably happen, but that's not guaranteed yet.

    Yes it is 'permanent', he will have it next year.

    He has it for this coming season. Right now, he doesn't have it for his senior year. He likely will, and I think he deserves it, but it's not guaranteed. Bubu is a year-by-year deal right now.
