The article focuses on college basketball player Randolph Morris. Morris figured he'd be a first-round pick when he put his name in the NBA draft last spring. Now, he needs to start playing like one for the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky, which has looked little like a top team most of this season. Morris was to make his season debut Tuesday after serving a suspension because of his association with a sports agency. Kentucky needs him to be an impact player inside--their leading rebounder is point guard Rajon Rondo, who's also the only player on the team averaging more than 10 points.
