Congrats guys! Hope their leadership takes this team to good places! This past year the captains were Miles, Kelly, and Curry (Curry was named about a month later than the other two).
I would have bet money (and lost) on Tyler Thornton being named Team Captain.

I feel like Mason was a near-lock for captain (guy who passes up the draft to play his senior year? Captain). Kelly being a captain could be some sign of a step forward for him, would love to see him really play on fire this coming year. Has a lot of great tools.
Congrats to Mason and Ryan. It's their time to lead.
ďI strongly feel that thatís not a basketball issue. Iím in charge of the basketball program as much the chancellor and the athletic director allow me to be. And itís not a basketball issue.Ē
Williams said, he is aware of the classes that his players take. ďI think it varies on a coach,Ē he said. ďI mean, Iím pretty aware of what our guys are doing. And itís not a basketball issue, guys. It is not a basketball issue. Itís a university issue.

Interesting with Seth -- not sure I recall a junior captain that was not a senior captain.
May be motivation, who knows. Seth is one of my favorites on this team and a big part of how far we go.

Wow, I can't recall the last time we didn't have a guard as one of our captains. Also we usually have a junior as co-captain, which I assume is done to prepare for the following year.
Front page error. I almost thought for a minute that Miles was really back. "This is no surprise, but seniors Miles Plumlee and Ryan Kelly have been named co-captains for next season."
(2.1 secs to go) Here's the pass to Laettner, puts it up .... YES!!
