KU finishes off a 92-62 victory.

Jesse Newell

Woolridge makes both.

Kent Wells

Looks like the Hawks didn't look past Washburn and focus on Emporia State too much.

Woolridge will have free throws after our final break.

Jesse Newell

Nice move by Woolridge, who split defenders in the lane before putting in a left-handed scoop shot.

Jesse Newell

Niko Roberts also checks in for the first time as a Jayhawk.

Jesse Newell

Robinson with a nice move, spinning to the baseline off a defender for two.

Jesse Newell

Jordan Juenemann getting ready to check in, much to the delight of the KU fans.

Jesse Newell

Releford misses another three. Better shot that time.

Jesse Newell

Morningstar with a 15-footer from the baseline. Marcus with the assist, passing up a chance at a 30-point game.

Jesse Newell

Marcus Morris with a three from the right wing. That's 28 points for him.

Jesse Newell

Marcus with a two in the lane, catching a tough pass from his brother. Not sure why they're both still in the game.

Jesse Newell

Self working the official for a foul call. Who says it's the exhibition season?

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

Say it ain't so, Travis, say you haven't worked for a year and still suffer calcium cranium!!!

Little fights for a ball in the paint, then muscles it up for two with a foul.

Media timeout.

Jesse Newell

Releford with his first shot attempt — a forced-up three that's short. Self slaps both hands on his knees in disgust.

Jaybate

22.3 percent from trey.

The Hindu god Athletishnu will mask it against the cupcakes.

But it appears KU am become Texas, misser of treys.

Let's hope it was an off half of shooting, or an off night (I haven't seen the second half stats yet).

But without Tyrel and Brady taking a lot more 3pt FGAs, this team looks like in and out no good from offensive exurbia.

The analogy with Texas haunts. Texas started last season with "tons of athleticism," but slowly came apart, because they could not put the schnapps in the shot glass from trey.

36% trey shooting is seductive insurance contract on the derivative hedge of college basketball offense that won't pay when crisis time comes.

Little makes one of two free throws.

Jesse Newell

Another well-executed pick-and-roll by KU, as Taylor dumps over the top to Little, who is hacked.

Jesse Newell

Releford with a quick move to the rim, and he's fouled. He hasn't taken an official shot yet, but the sophomore has played a solid game.

Jesse Newell

Releford with good defensive position in the lane, and he stands his ground to take a charge.

Jesse Newell

Marcus Morris with another two, putting in a shot over a defender from six feet away.

Kent Wells

It is just very cool that you all are uploading photos up as the game is played. That is so cool!

Jesse Newell

Johnson with another quick trigger on a three, this one with 34 left on the shot clock. The sophomore misses, and he could stand to be a bit more patient.

Jesse Newell

Now, Robinson is slow to get up after getting fouled, and the KU fans are getting tired off Washburn's rugged play. Robinson walks the injury off and remains in the game.

Nick Nelson in reply to Kent Wells

Yeah, super fast dude.

Jesse Newell

Markieff Morris goes down hard after a Washburn basket. He calls the trainers out. He's grabbing his right calf, which already had a black wrap on it. He's helped off the floor by trainers, walking a bit gingerly on his right leg.

Kent Wells in reply to Nick Nelson

Krug is amazing! How does he have time to shoot a roll of film, run out get it developed, scan the picture, and post it on the internet. He's good. Real good.

Johnson misses a three from the top of the key. The shot perhaps was a but too early in the shot clock.

I'm impressed LJWorld folks, holding it down!

Kansas forward Marcus Morris chases down a loose ball after stripping it from Washburn forward De'Andre Washington in the first half of the exhibition game, Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010 at Allen Fieldhouse. Washburn's Virgil Philistin was called for an intentional foul on the ensuing drive to the bucket for wrapping up Morris.

Jesse Newell

Marcus and Markieff Morris with three steals apiece. Not bad for your starting forwards. KU with 13 steals total.

Johnson with a nice bounce pass in the lane to Robinson on a pick-and-roll, and the big man finishes with a two-handed slam.

Nick Nelson in reply to Saguaro_jayhawk

Thank awesome staff photographer Nick Krug for the photos! I'm merely the messenger.

Jesse Newell

Washburn starting to get a little loose with its play. The 'Bods are trying to run with the Jayhawks, which rarely works.

Jesse Newell

Markieff Morris with a steal, and after getting a pass from Johnson, Markieff swishes a three from the right side. That's a shot Markieff probably doesn't have the confidence to take last year.

Jesse Newell

Morningstar dives to the floor for a steal, and the Jayhawks run the break. Little tosses up an alley-oop for Johnson, who goes high to slam it down. Johnson hung on the rim a little too long, though, and he's T'ed up for it.

Saguaro_jayhawk

NICE photos, Nick; thanks!

Taylor penetrates to free up Little for a three, but the shot is too strong.

Morningstar misses a three, but Little is under the basket for the offensive putback.

Markieff with a block off the backboard, and KU sprints in transition, with Reed putting in a layup off the glass. Timeout Washburn.

Who's putting these pics up?

Jesse Newell

Taylor swishes an open jumper with his foot on the line. He's played his best minutes to start the second half.

Jesse Newell

Of note: Releford started the second half in place of Morningstar and Markieff instead of Little.

Jesse Newell

Taylor with a steal, and he throws back to Marcus, who puts in a layup with a foul.

Jesse Newell

Taylor drives and puts in a double-clutch leaner over a defender. His ankle appears to be fine.

Jesse Newell

Reed with a wide-open three, but he hits front rim.

Jesse Newell

Releford hustles to get an offensive rebound, but he can't save it. Washburn follows with a three.

Jesse Newell in reply to Phogphanatic

No prob. It probably wasn't up yet when you typed.

Phogphanatic

Chalmers highlight on ESPN! It's about time they let him get on the court!

Heghawk

Stuck in Misery for business...can't watch it , can't stream it ($9.95 thanks KU athletics for gouging more money from me), can't watch the game cast on ESPN.com...This is my only life line.

Kesmithstl1

btw Newman is more white than Duke!!!

K-State up by 15 at half on Newman!

Phogphanatic in reply to Jesse Newell

Thx! Sorry, just getting used to this new format....really nice - keep up the good work!

Jesse Newell in reply to Phogphanatic

Look above.

Jayhawkparadise

Halfway to the century mark. Can we talk about how much fun the Mizzou games will be..?

Phogphanatic

How many pts. for Marcus???

Long three for Reed hits off the side rim, and a desperation heave from Washburn before the buzzer is wide.

We've reached halftime at Allen Fieldhouse.

Jesse Newell in reply to Beakem77

Yeah, I knew you were. Bad typo on my part.

Buffalonyjayhawkfan in reply to Jesse Newell

thx for the updates!!! keep them coming

Jesse Newell

Taylor with another floater from the left side that crawls in, but he lands awkwardly on his ankle. He comes out of the game.

Beakem77 in reply to Jesse Newell

Just messing around, bud. You're a champion. Thanks for the updates.

Vermontjayhawk

heard Newman was good this year...

Jesse Newell

Taylor with a floater off the glass, and he puts it in with a continuation foul. He completes the three-point play with the free throw.

Kip_mcsmithers

Sorry up 9.

Kip_mcsmithers

KState is up 7 I think.

Jesse Newell

Marcus with another steal at midcourt, and just before putting down a jam, he's bear-hugged by Virgil Philistin. The fans aren't happy, and they shouldn't be. That was a dangerous play by the WU guard.

Easy intentional foul call, and Marcus makes both free throws.

Hailtoku

K-State is apparently struggling big time right now??? Any word on that?

Saguaro_jayhawk

Joe Dooley steppin' out in with that suit.

Taylor with a quiet game so far. He puts in one of two free throws for his third point.

Vermontjayhawk

How much PT has Releford gotten? Has he been aggressive?

Jesse Newell

KU 19-for-20 from the free-throw line. That's impressive at any point of the season.

Jesse Newell in reply to Beakem77

Yeah sorry. Won't be the last time I screw up, I promise.

Kesmithstl1

so glad KU's twins are studs and not like Mizery's Slim and Slam Haley!

Marcus with a steal near midcourt, and he was ready to put in a highlight-reel dunk. Unfortunately for KU fans, a Washburn player fouled Marcus before he could get by the defender.

Hailtoku

That could've been show time.

Jesse Newell

Chipman is holding his own in the paint, contributing 10 points on 4-for-5 shooting.

Vermontjayhawk

Kesmithstl1

Jesse, could you please have your next writing on why Brady is not wearing an undershirt this year.

Bewareofthephunk

Royce looks good in there

Jesse Newell

Miscommunication between Marcus and Robinson, as Robinson runs away from Marcus' lob pass. Turnover KU.

Two free throws from Marcus.

Chipman falls down, and he's forced to foul Marcus Morris when he gets it close to the rim. "(Dangit)," Chipman says afterwards.
