You are right Boulder. For the most part, the Viper website is an out-of-date, inaccurate, and indecipherable mess.

I have a good idea that the president of that organization is looking into fixing that issue.

Here is an archive of the game Karl scored 17. I started watching at 2:10:00. Karl is the postgame interview at 2:38:30.

Lawdog- Your influence with the president of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers must have taken a hit! There is still not much on Karl. Leafing back through the games it appears that he plays almost every game, albeit very little. His minutes are mostly in single digits, and there is nothing in the stats that stands out. One would think that after that outburst and great game he would get his chance, but the D-League must be some strange animal. I spoke with someone local who had played in the D-League and he said there is lots of politics and luck involved. While the pay is controlled and low, some players are under contract to NBA teams who guide their progress. If someone goes down a player may get a look, but can often never be guaranteed. KC needs to catch a break if he is to get many looks. Otherwise his agent can always guide him to a league overseas and he will get plenty of playing time. The truth is that he is at the AAA level and with a little luck may get his chance. Karl is smart and has lots of talent. We wish him the best.

I saw that Karl got over 30 minutes of playing time the other night and scored 27 pts. It seems like he has done well when given a chance, but he doesn't seem to get many chances.

In October, 2016, Karl signed in Switzerland with BBC Lausanne. He is leading the team with 25 ppg, and also in minutes played.

That is great news. Karl will make a great living in Europe playing basketball. All he needs is a chance. Instant energy and great defense, combined with the ability to light it up in bunches.

Sounds like he will soon be moving to a better league if he is lighting up Switzerland. Love having Terriers playing around the world.
