The 2013-14 Kansas University men's basketball team looked like a Sweet 16 squad to one set of eyes on Friday at Late Night in the Phog. But if two developments occur throughout the course of the season, KU could blossom into the school to beat heading into March Madness. Column by Tom Keegan
Andrew White III, Naadir (not Nuh-Deer) Tharpe and Bill Self give their reaction to the skits and scrimmage from this year's Late Night at Allen Fieldhouse.
Perry Ellis scored 14 points on 6-for-7 shooting, leading the Blue team to a 66-40 win over Crimson at Late Night in the Phog.
In his unofficial debut, Andrew Wiggins scored 12 points on 6-for-8 shooting, making all six of his two-point attempts.
Jamari Traylor added 10 points on 5-for-5 shooting, while Tarik Black had 10 points on 5-for-6 accuracy. Naadir Tharpe chipped in 10 points (4-for-4 shooting) with seven assists and no turnovers.
The game didn't involve much defense, and KU coach Bill Self said afterwards he was disappointed with his players' effort in the scrimmage.
Andrew White III led the Crimson team with 14 points on 6-for-9 shooting with three steals.
KU will open the exhibition season on Oct. 29 with a home game against Pitt State.
