ESPN is smoking there crack pipes again.

Ku_fansince75

Hey, Keegan----you getting closer on your predictions on CramSession-----NOT!!!!

Selbyville

Count to 62 out loud, makes you respect the streak

Kckmedic

ESPN.com Gamecast has Selby in the box score with one offensive rebound. I'm at work and didn't get to watch or listen. What gives?

Rock Chalk Jayhawk KUUUUUUUUUUUUU

I think our bench is underrated!

Can't wait for some Bob Knight announcing myself.

Roudebush--- +2.

Soobawls in reply to Ku_fansince75

Even? I think you men especially.

Jesse Newell

Robinson with two offensive rebounds, and he puts the second in for two.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Soobawls

i agree with you on this.

Soobawls

This team isn't as good as Valparaiso in my opinion.

Jesse Newell

Robinson fades to his back shoulder, putting in a shot off the glass.

Ku_fansince75

Even when Dick Vitale announces games for KU, I will listen to Bob Davis & Chris Piper. Vitale will go off on a tangent-----ACC or Big East or whatever. Bob Knight does a good job---I know some folks don't like Bob.

Selbyville

I know, I know

Jesse Newell in reply to Selbyville

It's also a mismatch on the perimeter — the other way, though.

Selbyville in reply to Jesse Newell

haha I understand just a poor joke. Bout time to see some Woolridge

Roudebush1983

TX is shooting 39% that suxs for them.

Withey shoots two free throws. He makes one.

Roudebush1983

i think you are right the announcers have a hard on for taylor

Jesse Newell in reply to Selbyville

It's a mismatch in the lane.

Selbyville in reply to Jesse Newell

Define "mismatch"

Jesse Newell

Taylor drives to the lane, putting in a floater over a defender for two.

Jesse Newell

Withey blocks White on a drive. Five-foot-10 versus 7-foot-0 is a mismatch.

Jesse Newell

Two misses for KU. That'll hurt the field-goal numbers. Releford still puts in a three at the end of the possession.

Ku_fansince75

BTW, I listen to Pipe and Bob Davis---they are who I listen to VS Dave & Greg---sorry, that's the way I feel.

Nh_jhawk in reply to Pitthawk34

Pitthawk - Agreed. He lost me when he started babbling about Phil Mickelson.

Soobawls

I hope these refs are at least getting a hot bowl of soup and a cot out of this gig.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Jesse Newell

i think he heard audio on justin.tv watching the game line online.. wants station is that on.

Kesmithstl1

when I hear Bill Self say something about Selby, then I'll get excited. For now, just enjoying what we have!

Jesse Newell

Withey with a clean block, but he's whistled for the foul.

Jesse Newell in reply to Bbeckum

Oops, didn't answer the question. No, I haven't heard anything.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Bbeckum

Hmmm i want to know about this also.

Bennybob

wow, can the announcers try to lower expectations for tyshawn taylor this year any more?

Dkite726

14 fer 15 is insane..

Soobawls in reply to Selbyville

Then the Great Pumpkin will rise and give out treats! Let just hope the kid can contribute and let ESPN worry about who is "un-guardable"

Jesse Newell in reply to Bbeckum

I don't trust any Internet news on Selby.

Jesse Newell in reply to Ku_fansince75

Agree. I think he's settling down a bit. His 18-foot jumpers almost always go in. It might be a bad shot for others, but it's a good shot for him.

Pitthawk34

I am so sick of having to listen to Dave "WOW" Armstrong final thoughts. I know that he is a kansas Guybut he is the worst. Can we please get someone else to call the games. Im at the point I turn on the radio and watch the TV.

Dkite726

14 fer 15 is insane is what it is...

Jesse Newell

By the way, 14-for-15 is 93.3 percent. Yeah, that's good.

Bbeckum

Jesse: Just read on JustinTV that there's supposedly breaking news about Selby after the game. You know anything about that?

Ku_fansince75

Mario is looking more comfortable shooting---what do you think, Jesse?

Jesse Newell in reply to Soobawls

Yeah. Sometimes the two go hand in hand.

Mario Little swishes a three, and KU is 14-for-15 this half. Unbelievable.

Selbyville

Selby will make this team unguardable at almost every position, depending on the personnel

Soobawls in reply to Jesse Newell

I agree with what you said but I was actually talking about offensive aggressiveness.

Kesmithstl1 in reply to Jesse Newell

could also be we're not drinking our own kool aid!

Jesse Newell

Markieff is trapped on the baseline, and KU calls timeout to save the possession.

Jesse Newell in reply to Soobawls

I think a lot of that goes back to the fact KU can pressure the ball more defensively without Aldrich.

Taylor with two free throws.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Soobawls

i am liking it.... they are playing more at a team this year not 1 to 2 players.

Jesse Newell

Taylor fouled on a drive. KU getting to the free-throw line with ease.

Jesse Newell

Markieff adds two free throws.

Soobawls

I like the aggressiveness I'm seeing so far this year. We (so far) at least seem to have a fire last year's team lacked.

Jesse Newell

Mario Little blocks a shot out of bounds. Morningstar has taken a lot of his and Releford's minutes tonight.

Free throw good. KU 13-for-14 from the floor this half.

Markieff makes one of two free throws.

Jesse Newell

Markieff fouled inside. He's battling his brother now for player-of-the-game honors.

Farsidehawk

ESPN scorecard has Josh Selby listed and having a rebound. I got so happy for a few minutes and started looking for news about him being cleared (thinking it must have been a late decision.
Apparently it's a typo!

Selbyville

Half time t-shirt change really did it. I find the red Rush jersey is one of my luckier pieces of kansas gear

Jesse Newell

KU 12-for-13 from the floor in the second half.

Jesse Newell in reply to Roudebush1983

Ha, I know. That was funny.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Jesse Newell

i did not copy.. just good timing... Still funny

Marcus Morris with another tree from the top. Why not?

score isn't updating!

Jesse Newell

Johnson curls around a screen and swishes a three. Self applauds the play.

Jesse Newell

Morningstar with a floating layup. Johnson follows with a block.

Jesse Newell in reply to Soobawls

I'm like most officials, I guess: only saw the retaliation.

Soobawls

Some times you just have to elbow a guy after he slams you in the face.

Jesse Newell

No technicals given.

Jesse Newell

Officials using replay to sort the skirmish out.

Jesse Newell

There it is: "We want Selby!" the students chant.

Jesse Newell

Robinson scuffles on the sideline going for a loose ball, and he's lucky he didn't pick up a technical foul. Sure looked like he gave an extra shove there.

Jesse Newell

Robinson with a great feed in transition to Johnson, who slams it home. Self applauds the unselfishness, as do the KU fans.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Jesse Newell

Lets hope.. We need to let people know who`s house it is..

Jesse Newell

Marcus Morris for three. That's 13 points for him in the second half.

Jayhok

Guess we know now the difference with Taylor on the floor

Jesse Newell in reply to Roudebush1983

Pretty funny. I bet the students are louder now.

Jesse Newell

KU 7-for-8 to start the second half and 2-for-2 from three. North Texas, meanwhile, has doubled its turnover count from five to 10 in the first 5:16 of this half.

Roudebush1983 in reply to Jesse Newell

Woman needs to know her place in AFH.
