Criswell Keeps Connecticut On List

Leo Criswell is still on the radar screen for Connecticut

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- It's hard to imagine a player with the talent of Leo Criswell not scoring a single point in a summer game, but that's just what happened on Sunday afternoon at the Reebok Big Time Tournament.

Criswell, a 6-8 power forward from Kansas City, Kan., failed to score a single point as Rocktown dropped an 83-73 decision to the D-I Greyhounds in round of 32 action.

"I never did get in the flow of the game," said Criswell, who earned all-star merit earlier this month at the Reebok ABCD Camp. "I guess it was a slow start and my legs weren't right."

Back at the ABCD Camp, the multi-dimensional Criswell tabbed six schools as being on top of his list. He said that he had been offered by Miami, Oklahoma State and Marquette, with Connecticut, North Carolina and UCLA rounding out his list of choices.

"I am not going to name five schools now, I am just going to say that I am open," Criswell said. "Colleges started to lose interest in me, because they didn't think I was interested in them."

Criswell said he will begin to focus on the recruiting once he gets back home to Kansas and prepares to transfer to Mt. Zion in North Carolina.
