University of Kansas Guard Brandon Rush

Brandon Rush may just be the best Rush brother yet. Brandon shares Kansas City's richest basketball bloodline with JaRon and Kareem Rush, high-profile college players who have had rocky pro careers. Brandon nearly joined Kareem in the NBA -- straight out of high school -- when he considered entering the NBA draft last year. Instead, he chose to hit the books and join the Jayhawks. What a coup it was for coach Bill Self. Brandon is a 6-foot-6-inch game-changing guard-forward, with the ability to fill stat sheets with his offensive and defensive skills. Brandon became the first freshman in the history of the Big 12 conference to earn first team All Big 12 honors, and he helped lead the Jayhawks to a Big 12 Tournament Championship and an NCAA Tournament berth. After the season, there was barely a whisper about Brandon heading to the pros. Instead, Brandon heads into his sophomore season on a retooled Jayhawks squad trying to erase the nightmares of Marches past.
