Men’s hoop: Capel Q&A
SoonerSports.com has a good summer Q&A with basketball coach Jeff Capel here.
Among the highlights:
How does Blake Griffin’s decision to return affect this team and the program as a whole?
“It affects it a lot, in so many positive ways. If you look at the landscape of college basketball, how many guys came back that were definite top-10 picks? None, except Blake Griffin. That means we’ll have one of the top players — if not the top player — in the country returning. Also, hopefully it gives more attention to our program and will spark more interest in it. I think we’ve already seen that nationally with some of the publications and what people are thinking about us. For our team, it should give us confidence.
“Also, it should help us on the recruiting front — kids knowing that they can come here and develop into a pro, into a potential lottery pick, which is what Blake will be. So it helps us in so many different ways.
