Notebook: Krauser leaves pre-draft camp on positive note
He struggled with his shooting, but Pitt's Carl Krauser played perhaps his best game on the final day of the NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago, although his team dropped a 102-97 decision. Krauser, who was 0 for 5 -- all from 2-point range -- handed out seven assists on Friday, second only to the game-high nine produced by Notre Dame's Chris Thomas, who was a backcourt teammate of Krauser's on a team that lost all three of its games this week. Another of Krauser's teammates, West Virginia's Kevin Pittsnogle, also fared well, scoring a game-high 16 points on 7-of-13 shooting in the loss to a team led by Washington's Tre Simmons, who scored a game-high 24 points. Elsewhere, former West Virginia center D'or Fischer came away from the camp's final game of the week last night encouraged by his week's performance. The 6-foot-11 Fischer was approached in a hallway by former NBA big man Olden Polynice, who told him he did "very well."
