Dear Royce, Please stay in school. Much love, Iowa State

Yes, you've seen a lot of Royce White in Upload. But that's because he was

pretty much the talk of the NCAA Tournament right up until the time his Iowa State team was knocked out by No. 1-seed Kentucky on Saturday night.

 

This one is just too rich to pass on, given White's history at the U -- and in high school at De La Salle. The editorial combines a bit of fawning with some tough love.

Here's part of the case made by the Iowa State Daily: "Another year at Iowa State would give White the chance to work with ISU coach Fred Hoiberg — one of the best shooters in ISU basketball history — on his jump shot, something he needs to improve on before moving to the next level. White could hone specific skills in college that he needs to master before being game-ready in the NBA. While he did lead the team in five (positive) statistical categories, he also led the team in turnovers. Turning the ball over in the NBA lands you either on the bench or in the D-League."

And here's the rest of the editorial, telling White to come back to Ames for at least one more season.
