  • Out of the gym


    Straight up, straight down.
    That’s Jared Kelty under the basket, by the way. Straight up, straight down. Up off two feet. Elbows above the rim.

    The senior is tall by ordinary standards, but is no giant by basketball standards. So to see Kelty go up, up, up above the rim is to see mouths in the crowd go agape.
    The style in which Kelty jumps is also drawing some attention.
