Hey face it fans,,a lot of hawk fans thought KU was over rated this year. Texas has a very good team that can reach the final 4.

Joel Thomas

Could be worse. Played terribly for one half to perhaps the best defensive team in the country and not a blowout. 2008 team lost three in a row. Duke didn't look like champs last year.

Yahweh

We're still 41-2 at home against the B12 South since the inception of the BXII. That is totally, utterly dominant. We'll bounce back and hopefully show more effort. We'll have to if we want to get very far this year.

What I want to know is how UT lost to USC by 17 points.

Pitthawk34

Looking forward for next year for one reason...I dont have to look at Moringstar on the court.

fansincewilt

Brady just has more experience. I notieced Releford didn't get in.

Wissoxfan83

I think Selby has replaced Morningstar on the Hate-O-Hawk meter!

Joel Thomas

It's one game. Nobody honestly thought we'd go undefeated. We played like crap for the second half against perhaps the best defensive team in the country, and it wasn't a blowout. 2008 team lost three in a row. Duke didn't look like the champs during the season last year.

Rockchalk_dpu in reply to Jesse Newell

that's also our second game against a top-25 team though. at home. i know it isn't the end of the world, but its certainly disappointing and makes us look a little worse in the eyes of pollsters

Ses

When will we play the second half of a game?

Brian Powell

mmmmmmm.... "bread ignorance": is that white or wheat?

Andrew Bary in reply to Kgphoto

bred. Not bread. :)

Tis4tim

I don't know how to feel. I'm not used to this result.

Brian Powell

he was right there where everyone else was. nowhere

Bcravenjhawkfan

Selby supporters, where the hell was he?

Kgphoto

Ignorant fans, right here on this site, beating their chests, guaranteeing a win.

I've said it so many times. Humility goes a long way. KU fans showed none today.

Thank god we got that stupid win streak over with. It only bread ignorance.

Brian Powell

true.. we actually had a chance if we made that stop or two :P

Yahweh

We'll be 5th.

fansincewilt

We all wondered how they would do against a top ten.

Fljhk

Tough loss, hope it makes them hungrier and I think it will. No matter what, it was a great streak.

Caddyshacks

how far do we fall in the rankings?

Kesmithstl1

don't panic folks! All good things come to an end. Texas made the plays!

Brian Powell

the streak, CBS, Texas... bitter. really bitter.

Yakihawk

Every game KU loses, someone from the other team makes a horse shit three.

Lonnie Ross Dillon

We needed a loss to teach these guys that you can't take any victory for granted.

Authink in reply to Saad Saifeddine

we need the less than 1 point a game average from Morningstar keep playing him so much and results will be same

Ku_fansince75

It is an unbelievable loss but we have to flush this one down the toilet. Pressure off now, right?

Lance1jhawk

We will get another shot at TexAss in the BigXII tourney and I bet the outcome will be alot different.

Caddyshacks

worst half we've played in years

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Kugreenmachine

Agreed.

FINAL
Texas 74
Kansas 63

Jesse Newell

The streak ends at 69. Texas wins by 11.

Brian Powell

I'd rather lose a non-conf. game to an unranked team. Or a conf. game vs. ANYONE else but Texas.

Yahweh

Hopefully it'll be a teachable moment for Self. You can't take halves off.

Cshjhawk

Beats crying! There will be another streak!

Cshjhawk

Beats crying! There will be another streak!

Cshjhawk

Beats crying! There will be another streak!

Kugreenmachine

we played this game like we were waiting for something, or someone to come in and do something.... I wonder what they were waiting for?

Lonnie Ross Dillon

Losing the streak kills more than one game. Crap.

Craig Colgin

It's an inexcusable loss at home when your up by 15 and play half heartedly for half of the game. It's just not good enough. GIve your best and lose, good enough! That's not what happened today.

Kenshinu

I've been saying it for years....KU ALWAYS sucks on CBS

Jayhawkinatl

$300M deal with ESPN and breaking "The Streak"...pretty good week to be a UT fan!!!

Wissoxfan83

They just showed a KU student smiling, find out who he is and take away his season tickets!

Superdave

true, Jesse, but what's our record against the rest of the top 10?

Caddyshacks

unless we get a lot better at pressure shooting from outside, this team is elite eight at best

Authink in reply to Kesmithstl1

maybe superstar and defensive whiz brady should be in

Yahweh

Agreed. Too little, too late.

Jesse Newell in reply to Saad Saifeddine

It's one loss against a top-10 team, folks.

Brian Powell

see how Morris is forcing the issue? we needed that wayyyyyyyy back in the beginning of this half

Saad Saifeddine

we are definitely not going far in the tourney with guards like taylor and selby! taylor is just not good, and selby is too incosistent! looks like another UNI season

Lance1jhawk

go for the steal if not we need to foul

Andrew Bary

Don't make shots = don't win games

69 in a row is great wish we could have gotten one more

Ku_fansince75 in reply to Joel Thomas

At the Sprint Center!

Ku08

Clap clap clap. Pretty amazing going nearly four years without a loss at home. Gotta feel pretty fortunate to root for the Jayhawks!

Lindhawk

WTF taylor he has stuck it up all day... why do you try to score against their bigs? the morris's haven't been able to score over them today!!!!?!????

Joel Thomas

Hopefully we get a rematch.

Jim Roth

69 is pretty good.

Kenshinu

I guess they forget about a concept called off-the-ball defense

Caddyshacks

Jesse Newell

Markieff gets a two with a foul. Officials calling lots of touch fouls.

Caddyshacks

gotta make a 3ball sometime

Superdave

i'm not a Selby hater, I just don't understand why he gets to play.

Brian Powell

if we can't get a stop, we don't have a chance.

My question to Morris is where the ___ were you earlier???

Kesmithstl1

Matt Hill is horrible!

Brian Powell

draw the charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cmon

Jesse Newell

Hamilton drives by Taylor for a two.

Caddyshacks

Selby had one spin in and out of the rim, might as well let him keep shooting

Authink in reply to fansincewilt

How do expect to get rebounds with three guards

Authink in reply to fansincewilt

How do expect to get rebounds with three guards

Cshjhawk in reply to Kj12389

???????

Brian Powell

a lot of SElby haters came out of the closet today lol he's a freshman! he'll be dominant in a year or two...

Superdave

can someone explain why Selby gets PT?

Saad Saifeddine in reply to Larry Evans

yeah, how could you miss that layup if you're a guard!!!!

Caddyshacks

no one can hit a 3 under pressure except Selby

Kesmithstl1 in reply to Cshjhawk

I think he'll be ok! Just tough to live up to those expectations.

Ku_fansince75

Would love to see Rick Barnes vapor lock in this situation!

Kj12389

selby needs to go pro and free up a scholarship.
