AMW Team France outscored KU 48-26 in the second half to turn it into a blowout.

Perry Ellis led KU with 16 points on 6-for-9 shooting with 12 rebounds. Andrew White added 15 points, while Zach Peters contributed nine rebounds.

Team France's Kevin Seraphin, who plays for the Washington Wizards, had 16 points on 6-for-8 shooting with six rebounds.

Jesse Newell

KU completes the exhibition trip 2-2.

Jesse Newell

That ends it.

Jesse Newell

Self puts in a floater in the lane.

Jesse Newell

Alley-oop for France.

Jesse Newell

Ugly free throw by Garrett. Off the glass. Second one bounces in.

Jesse Newell

Garrett fouled on the drive.

Jesse Newell

Just 31 seconds left.

Jesse Newell in reply to Averagecitizen

Slick ball and slick floor. And some of KU's players are talented but raw.

Jesse Newell

France misses both but gets the board.

Averagecitizen

Jesse - Why do you think we are losing all these passes? Does it have to do with the slick ball or mental confidence?

Jesse Newell

Lucas fouls his man in the post. He's been called for a few cheapies. That fouls him out.

Jesse Newell

Garrett makes one.

Jayhawk1968

Thanks, Jesse, for putting up with me.

Jesse Newell

Garrett will shoot two after getting fouled.

Jesse Newell in reply to Queenofpack

Yeah, walk-ons in.

Jesse Newell in reply to Rockchalkunleashed

Hey, someone's gotta do it.

Queenofpack

Milton still on the bench

Jesse Newell

Self can't get a deep pass, slipping out of bounds.

Rockchalkunleashed

Jesse, thanks for taking on the tough job of following the team around Europe. We've learned a lot about the young guys and can't wait for Late Night. Safe travels back home.

Girlinthephog

First time I've seen Self's name in the lineup

Jesse Newell

France with a 22-6 run this quarter.

Teri Griffin-Guntert

Perhaps there is a message in the choice to play the Newcombers in this game. That they are not all that without experience and Mentorship. If so, it is a good call by Coach Self.

Jesse Newell

Roberts loses his dribble out of bounds.

Jayhawk1968

Safe to say, we are not ready for international play after about 3 quarters.

Jesse Newell

Roberts, Self, Garrett, Wesley and Lucas on the floor.

Girlinthephog

Wow, did they give up?

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Yikes. Well, thanks for answering my questions, Jesse. Get back safe and sound.

Jesse Newell

Townsend getting on an official.

Jesse Newell

Seraphin with a one-handed thunder jam. Timeout KU.

Jazzttt

At least they're learning some humility, but I hate to see it get out of hand like this.

Jesse Newell

Ellis puts in a two off the glass in transition.

Jesse Newell

Townsend tried to call timeout, but the official ignored him.

Queenofpack

Milt in?

Joe Satterwhite

Geez

Jesse Newell

White misses a pull-up from the baseline.

Jesse Newell

Dunk in transition for France, which is now up 21.

Jesse Newell

Ellis turns it over, then misses a two on the next possession.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Yikes.

Jayhawk1968

Yikes!

Jesse Newell in reply to Queenofpack

No.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Are they working inside out and all?

Jesse Newell

Another three for France. KU trails, 73-54.

Queenofpack

Are they still in a zone

Jesse Newell

White with a steal and dunk.

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

After 10 practices, KU only has a couple sets in.

Lulufulu85

I dont think a loss here is bad thing, these freshmen need experience. Its good for them

Jesse Newell

Another three for France.

Jesse Newell

Tharpe misses a shot.

Lulufulu85 in reply to Dynamitehawk

Go Tiger!

Jayhawk1968

Is there a mercy rule in International Rules?

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Are we running any offense at all? Or just chucking up shots?

Dynamitehawk

Going to watch some golf. Jesse, well done. Safe travels.

Jesse Newell

Seraphin travels. He's up to 14 points on 5-for-7 shooting.

Jesse Newell

Roberts with a bad shot, forcing up a three. It misses.

Dynamitehawk

Dang.

Lajayhawk

Dang, we're getting blown out in the fourth.....

Cshjhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Scoring at will.

Jesse Newell

Seraphin for two more.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jayhawk1968

Ah. That's a cool idea, actually. Makes perfect sense.

Jesse Newell

Tharpe misses a runner.

Jesse Newell

Roberts in for Adams.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Thanks Jess. Behind on my KU news that last week or two.

Jesse Newell

Another turnover for KU, this one to Adams.

Jayhawk1968

Dooley did 2nd Swiss game. Townsend gets this one.

Averagecitizen

Told you the French would step it up.

Jesse Newell

Seraphin starting to take over. He hits another two.

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

Yeah, it's in a notebook from a couple days ago. Self is on the bench.

Jesse Newell

Peters loses the ball on the dribble out of bounds.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Huh. Interesting. Is Self in the stands behind him or something? Sorry, I'm sure you already covered all this already.....

Jesse Newell

Ellis with a bad pass that leads to a transition two for France.

Jesse Newell

KU trails, 61-52.

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

Nope, letting Townsend get experience.

Jesse Newell

Seraphin skies in the lane for two.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Townsend got the T?? Is Self not coaching?

Jesse Newell

Seraphin makes one of the two technicals. France will shoot two on all fouls the rest of the way.

Cshjhawk

Why has KU taken so many three attempts? Can't get inside?

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

Lots of turnovers, as you'd expect. About 20 or so.

Jesse Newell

Townsend gets a technical foul. Man, he didn't say much to get that.

Lajayhawk

Hey Jesse, just jumping on. How've they looked? A ton of turnovers like yesterday, or are they taking care of the ball today?

Jesse Newell

White with a hand check.

Jesse Newell

Young misses, but Lucas gets the board and sticks it back for two.

Jesse Newell

Good passing by France nets a three.

Jesse Newell

Lucas fouls Seraphin. KU has three team fouls this quarter already.

Jesse Newell

White misses an open three. France with the board.

Jesse Newell

Two straight turnovers for France. KU still trails, 55-50.

Pepper_bar in reply to Jesse Newell

Thanks Jesse.

Jesse Newell

White misses a three, gets the rebound, but then charges in. That's his fifth turnover.

Jayhawk1968

And?

Jesse Newell

Manning called for a blocking foul. He's giving up 50 pounds and about four inches to the man he's guarding.

Dadeo

So Ellis has a lot of points for just 16 minutes!

Jesse Newell in reply to Pepper_bar

Yep.

Pepper_bar

Is this KU's last game of the eurotrip?

Jesse Newell in reply to Jesse Newell

I guess Ellis has 16 minutes, but the other two have 11 or fewer minutes.

Joe Satterwhite

Smh

Jesse Newell in reply to Jazzttt

KU has limited some newcomers that have played a lot in the other games as well (Young, Peters, Ellis).

Jesse Newell

KU up to 19 turnovers. France has seven. That's the difference so far.

Jazzttt

I knew we were only going to play relative newbies, at this stage, experience in game situations is invaluable.

Jesse Newell

Manning slips on the court and turns it over with a second left. End of three.

Jesse Newell

Three for France. KU holds for one.

Jesse Newell

Doyle misses on a drive. Not a bad move to get in the lane.
