I understand one is a better shooter and the other is more of a slasher, which one is Keegan?
From what limited info I've been able to glean via highlights and write-ups, they have similar games but Keegan is a little taller and more skilled.

Keegan is a bit taller, sturdier of build and more of a scorer. i think he is a stretch 4 in college, playing in the role Wieskamp does right now.

Kris looks quicker and seems to be a better ballhandler and passer. I think Kris has more potential to be a defender on par with his dad.

“I try to look out for my teammates and trust in them,” he said. “That’s always been my game. I think that helps. I think they boost their energy off of me. If I’m out there dishing, they are going to reflect off me. I love playing like that and helping my teammates out.”
This is consistent with most Fran players offensively. He seems to put alot of value into guys that understand how to play and are skilled. The few clips I've seen of the Murray twins are the same. They don't force garbage and are pretty good passers. I don't see any Brandon Huttons or Ahmad Wagners that aren't skilled in this bunch. None of them are as limited physically as Fleming or as retarded as Moss. I'm all in.

JO looks like the Rutgers big man prototype (they all seemed to be named Shaq). Size that you can’t teach. As long as the kid wants to be successful it seems likely that Fran can teach him skills and finesse.

Some if it will just be program expectations. Every big man has at least run to the rim well, so I don’t expect on court effort to be a thing. He looks like he has good hands and feet. I am pretty excited.

I like him more every time I see highlights. The good thing is that Fran can teach him the motor and consistency. What you can't teach is the fuck you aggression he has in those highlights. He is vocal, big, screams and plays tough.

Iowa has had enough quiet pussies to fill a stadium. They need guys like this one who look like they might enjoy beating the shit out of people.

Yep. He clearly needs to be in better basketball shape, but that will come. I wouldn’t expect much from him next year, though.

Luka has the best hands of any big ever at Iowa. Possibly any player. It's uncanny.
This.

I think it was Kreiner yesterday that had the ball on the wing and dribbled down to get a passing angle and actually took his man into Garza before turning it over on a bounce pass. Fuck that. Just throw it in, he will grab it. Pass doesn’t need to be perfect.

Also, probably the best motor ever. Probably best player ever. Wish we didn't have the injuries, could have been a special season. Next year hopefully.
