Memorial Day Classic: Day Two Notebook

Nashville, Tenn. - It was another exciting day of basketball at the Nike Memorial Day Classic. Several KU prospects had unforgettable performances during the afternoon session. For the second time in as many days, Kyle Singler, the No. 6 ranked player in the class of 2007, stole the show with his performance against Boo Williams.

Singler has unforgettable performance:

After falling behind by double-digit, Singler found a way to get his squad back into the game. He took the ball coast-to-coast for a vicious dunk, scored from the outside, hit quite a few jump shots from the base side and had a handful of put backs.

When the final buzzer sounded, the Portland Legends lost by just three-points. They actually had a chance to take the game into overtime, but were unable to get a last second shot off.

Opposing teams have repeatedly tried to shutdown the five-star prospect, but none have been successful. Singler has been hit with junk defenses and faces constant double and triple teams, but that hasn't slowed him down one bit.

Singler is such a special player. He has a motor that never stops and plays the game with a great deal of passion, energy and love. He gives 100 percent effort at all times, which separates him from others.
