We had the Ukraine "In" - What Happened?

After reading the discussion headed by "El Goddard Terp" about a month ago concerning Statislov Mykhailiuk, I was intrigued by the possibility of our Alex Len connection paying off in Ukraine.

While UVa seemed to be in on the early action, UK and KU came sniffing around after Mykhailiuk played in the 1st session of the Nike EYBL in Sacramento last month. We wondered if we had any interest with him, especially since he might go right into the pros.

I also realized that the DC-Balt region, with its 28,000 Ukraine born implants, might have some sway in giving us a look. I also thought SJ's might try, considering its #1 165,000 Ukraine population.

Well, Self struck and convinced Mykhailiuk to head out to KU. It's kind of disappointing to not see us competing for him (although I have no idea whether or not we tried, were rebuffed, etc.). If we did try and didn't gain traction, maybe it was due to Mykhailiuk's speaking fluent English. Either way, I think the staff should have its eyes peeled for future Ukraine players.
