Kansas coach Bill Self talks to reporters following the Jayhawks' 73-63 victory over Texas on March 3, 2012.
No manufactured drama will follow Thomas Robinson into the postseason. Everybody, from coach Bill Self to Robinson himself, realized long ago that the issue of whether he would return to Kansas for his senior season was not an issue at all. So why fake it?
With 25 points, 14 rebounds and yet another victory, Kansas University junior forward Thomas Robinson put the final stamp on his player-of-the-year campaign during a 73-63 victory against Texas on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.
Kansas University seniors Jordan Juenemann, Conner Teahan and Tyshawn Taylor spoke to the fans following Saturday’s 73-63 victory against Texas in Allen Fieldhouse.
All week, those around Kansas University senior Conner Teahan had told him that once he picked up the microphone for his senior speech, he was going to start rambling.
Thomas Robinson contributed 25 points — with 18 coming in the second half — to go with 14 rebounds, leading the Kansas men's basketball team to a 73-63 victory over Texas during Senior Night on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.
Tyshawn Taylor added 22 points, four assists and three steals to go with four turnovers in his final home game.
KU was never seriously challenged in the second half despite a huge offensive performance from UT's J'Covan Brown. The junior posted a game-high 33 points, with 29 of those coming after halftime.
KU held Texas to 38-percent shooting (21 of 56) and 18-percent shooting from three (3 of 17).
KU (26-5, 16-2 Big 12) will play either Texas A&M or Oklahoma at 2 p.m. Thursday in the Big 12 Tournament at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.
