Jerel McNeal working through the summer

OK, a bit of legit basketball to report on.

Rivals speaks with Jerel McNeal, the heart and soul of the current MU vintage, about his workouts this off-season. Gotta love this fellas' moxie:

"I've got a good frame for playing defense," McNeal said. "I'm not tall but I have long arms and quick feet. Everything else is mental things - anticipation, thinking about plays that the offense will make before they make them. It's a combination of physical ability and getting inside my opponent's head."
