Kansas basketball coach Bill Self discussed the Jayhawks' 90-88 victory over Kansas State on Tuesday, Landen Lucas becoming more consistent and his disappointment with his team's defense.
If it was not already evident from his 15-point, 17-rebound effort last Friday in a road win over TCU, Kansas senior Landen Lucas buttered his own bread and made it obvious during Tuesday’s 90-88 victory over Kansas State.

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk traveled all the way from Ukraine to Lawrence to pursue his dream of becoming an NBA player. He’s a world traveler, all right, but never had he experienced any travel as memorable as one from Tuesday night that he’ll never forget. By Tom Keegan
With his father, Iurri, visiting from Ukraine and sitting in the Allen Fieldhouse bleachers behind the visitor’s bench, cheering for everything from his son’s introduction to a couple of made free throws, Kansas junior Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk had the ball in his hands with the game on the line and gave his dad something to truly cheer about.
