• So what’s the math on Chuba getting to 2,000 yards?

Can Chuba hit 2K? The #math would say it’s inevitable, but at some point the carries get reduced or he has 53 yards against a middling Big 12 team or his energy just wanes … right? He needs to average 129.4 yards the rest of the way, which seems like cake for somebody who’s currently blasting teams for 182.3 until you remember that only two other dudes nationally are even averaging 129.4.

Jonathan Laurent brings a massive asset to the Cowboy offense this winter – his shooting in tandem with the other sharpshooters already on the roster.

A graduate transfer from UMass, Laurent is on his third university (he played at Rutgers from 2015-17). Last year at UMass Laurent averaged 9.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. Plus, he led the Atlantic-10 Conference in 3-point shooting at 46.7 percent. Combine Laurent with the 3-point shooting of Lindy Waters III and Thomas Dziagwa and you have a trio of players that can connect from the arc at 40 percent or better. And that has the potential to confound Big 12 defenders. [HCS]

The top three-point shooter in the A10! With Dziagwa and Waters, the lane will have to be wide open for takeoff for whatever point guard is running the show.

Wedding weekend: Rickie Fowler and Allison Stokke got hitched in a low-key (as in “literally nobody talked about when it was happening” low-key) wedding recently, and photos started pouring in over the weekend. There are bridesmaid jokes to be made. I will not make them. [CBS Sports]
