BOULDER — McKinley Wright IV began his virtual press conference, which followed his decision to return to Colorado for his senior season, with a 25-second opening statement.
He began by saying he was excited and that the Buffs had unfinished business. He said the team has a lot of key guys coming back. And then he dropped a name, the only name he brought up unprompted during his opening statement.
It wasn’t the name of skilled veteran big man Evan Battey. It wasn’t the name of his other returning classmate, D’Shawn Schwartz. In fact, it wasn’t even the name of a player who saw the court last season.
