Afternoon Linkage: Is Xavier Henry still gone?
By Eamonn Brennan
ESPN's college hoops Rumor Central has been following Xavier Henry closely for the last few weeks, and today RC is asking whether Henry is still a one-and-done (Insider). Henry started hot for the Jayhawks but has cooled off in conference play as Sherron Collins has taken on more and more of the scoring load. For what it's worth, Henry is looking like a fringe lottery pick right now -- he's No. 17 in Chad Ford's mock draft (Insider), No. 14 at Draft Express, and No. 15 at NBADraft.net. Henry is super-talented, but maybe he's better off returning to Kansas for a year, running the show, and improving his draft stock, rather than jumping in to an uncertain situation right away. (By the way, that sound you hear is Kansas fans hyperventilating with joy.)
