Emmanuel Mudiay updated his fans on his USA TODAY Sports blog, and you can check out the full piece in the tweet below. My favorite part is where Mudiay writes about how he might play Othello in his school play, which would be quite a sight to see.

Shakespeare and basketball may not seem to go together, but would argue that they might have more in common than you might think. Watch the 30 for 30 film about head coach Paul Westhead and then come back to me.
Mudiay is committed to the SMU Mustangs, and he is often seem at their home games since his high school is so nearby. Head coach Larry Brown probably wishes he could play Mudiay this year, but the point guard has other goals first and the main one is getting back to the national title tournament which was recently renamed.
“I feel like we’re getting better,” Mudiay wrote. “But we’ve definitely gotta pick it up even more. Our goal is to play for the national championship in New York so we’ve gotta take care of business now. I just hate to lose and I know that there are a lot of good teams out there with the same goal as us. I’ve seen that a lot of good teams are losing games too so that helps us. But I just keep telling my team that we’ve gotta take it one game at a time because when you’re looking ahead is when you slip-up and lose.”
Only eight teams get invited, so we will have to see if Prime Prep (TX) can get one. Got another Prep piece coming at you tonight, and then three previews for all of the pro basketball action going on tomorrow.
