KEIFER SYKES RUMORS & GOSSIP
The world is a much smaller place than it was to our parents. Everything is a known commodity now or, at least, thought to be. Very few things, events and people get through the cracks. It doesn’t really matter if it’s a good or bad thing either. All things, with the ease of accessibility the Internet provides, makes it a pretty good time to be alive — for the most part.
While most of the attention in college basketball goes to the players in the power conferences, there are some special players at mid-major programs. One of them is electrifying Wisconsin-Green Bay guard Keifer Sykes. The 5-foot-11 guard made headlines earlier this season when he came very close to dunking hard on Wisconsin star Frank Kaminksy. He is averaging 18.5 points, 4.2 assists...
CHICAGO — February 26, 2015 may go down nationally as the day when llamas on the loose and a questionably colored dress took the Internet by storm.

Take, for an example, Green Bay's game last year against Wisconsin, which nearly became one of the upsets of the early season. In that game, a 69-66...

Green Bay’s Keifer Sykes may actually be able to fly — we’re not sure. Today against UIC, the 5-foot-11 guard (and that may be a generous listing by the school) threw down two monster dunks to help the Phoenix come away with a 69-64 win. Green Bay released video of the dunks, and included some great slow-motion replays as well:
