  Sherron Collins (non) Update
Luke Winn of Sports Illustrated wrote The Crane Jewel, a report on the recruiting battle for Sherron Collins of Chicago Crane. The article, of course, plays up the contest between Illinois coach Bruce Weber and the man he replaced, Kansas coach Bill Self.

It doesn't really break any new ground in the recruiting saga, but does bring some interesting insight into the recruiting methods of coach Self. For instance: The Crane coach added that Self thinks "Sherron is the missing piece to Kansas making the Final Four." And Collins said Self told him the Jayhawks "want a point guard like me to run the show."

How many point guards have heard that line and others like it? Illinitalk (thanks for the tip) has a nice recap that debunks some myths of past "battles."
