Rock Chalk.

Nice win.

Melrank

Julius Randle - come to KU and beat teams like Chaminade!

Brian Haase

Rock Chalk... glad to see us play like we can, see you all tomorrow night. Jesse, thanks again.

Internettoughguy in reply to Holidaysmore

YEAH MAYBE YOU CAN SAY THAT TO MY FACE

Blakehalljay85

Way to open up the can, boys. And double-nice to see CHAMINADE take out Barnes and company in the tropics!

Holidaysmore

How Niko got on this team is beyond me.

Duane Rice in reply to Dynamitehawk

Your out of your mind. If you dont think they listen to you now wait until there in front of their peers.

Melrank

ROCK CHALK

Lajayhawk in reply to Duane Rice

Well, their tuition is being paid by coaches, so... kind of.... HA!

Blakehalljay85

Couple of beer-laden Sprint Center fans doing the chant... =)

FINAL
Washington State 41
Kansas 78

Jesse Newell

KU closes out the win.

Dynamitehawk

Yep. That's the name that sticks from tonight. When Las Nepotistas hit the floor it's Rock Chalk time.

Danr

C'mon pancakes

Melrank

We might not get any pancakes tonight.

Duane Rice

are any of the coaches sons on scholarships

Blakehalljay85 in reply to Dynamitehawk

Las Nepotistas!

Dynamitehawk

We got team Nepotism on the floor. :) Would be really cool to coach your kid, though.

Brian Haase

"all son's of their fathers" - gotta be the best comment by these commentator's thus far in the season

Melrank in reply to Jeremy Wilhelm

Thanks.

Jaybate

If Evan Manning is 6-3, I am 7-0!!!

Lajayhawk in reply to Blakehalljay85

Awesome.

Jeremy Wilhelm in reply to Melrank

Christian Garret

Blakehalljay85 in reply to Lajayhawk

Yep

Duane Rice

so will more ku fans know that chaminade beat texas (Then texas fans).

Melrank

Who's 21?

Lajayhawk

Wait... are all three coaches sons on the floor together?

Dynamitehawk

I want to see Self pull his son and chew him out. :)

Blakehalljay85 in reply to Jaybate

And precisely in the numerical range that Coach cited as optimal 4 production the other night.

Jaybate

KU's committee player JaPerVin has plateaued, but is ending up:

20 pts.

15 reebs.

That's an all-league kind of a game.

Melrank

Beef - it's what's for dinner - HA!

Dynamitehawk

This team could end up being scary good by March. If it can learn to play D, look out.

Allen Shepard

Jesse: KU played well versus WSU played badly in percentages i.e. 100 / 0, 50 / 50, etc. ?

Stuboro

Fresh legs for SLU tomorrow

Melrank in reply to Jesse Newell

As he should have.

Jeremy Wilhelm in reply to Lajayhawk

We are up by a bit :-)

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

He played seven this half.

Blakehalljay85

Tractor Traylor coming through!

Washington State 35
Kansas 77

Jesse Newell

Traylor with a quick move across the lane.

Lajayhawk

Has BMac played like 3 minutes this half? Feel like he's been on the bench for a while...

Melrank

Apparently the hook isn't very quick in 40 point blowouts.

Jaybate

Tharpe needs to take Rio Adams out for a steak dinner after the game. Adams played so unimpressively that Tharpes very modest game seems solid.

Jesse Newell

Self riding Rio for that shot on the other end.

Duane Rice

i think jesse needs to collect the entries from tonight's post and set up a poll on kusports.com.

Brian Haase in reply to Dynamitehawk

welcome to the world of ESPN

Dynamitehawk

Nice... all those great Hall of Famer names and they fade to Vitale...

Lajayhawk

Sweet Jebus. Danny got inducted the same year as Vitale? Talk about shaking a guy's hand while you kick him in the nuts...

Blakehalljay85

Good Lord, Vitale's name is right above Manning's in the HoF. Talk about a visual blemish!

Stuboro

Watching Danny's son play makes me feel old

Danr

Withey doesn't need a nick. It's all how you say it... Depending on the play.

Melrank in reply to Ljmhawk

Little Dipper has to be Wesley. I say ERASER!

Dynamitehawk

Evan Manning!!

Blakehalljay85 in reply to Blakehalljay85

With Naadir's D, that is.

Jaybate in reply to Blakehalljay85

Yup.

Blakehalljay85 in reply to Jaybate

And if you saw/heard the Shiver interview with Coach, you know he's getting really frustrated with it (the D effort and execution).

Ljmhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

I like high 5 or little dipper

Melrank in reply to Dynamitehawk

I can't take credit - someone else came up with that a couple games ago.

Duane Rice

Nice pass by KY.

D_bradley27

hell of a look by KY

Lajayhawk in reply to Ljmhawk

LOL. I couldn't read that without hearing a facetious voice. No idea why.

Melrank

Poor Adams can't buy a bucket.

D_bradley27

missed bunnies

Jeremy Wilhelm in reply to Jeremy Wilhelm

I know it's dumb - call it mlid OCD

Ljmhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

how about High 5. he's number 5 and well he's always giving the ball a high 5.

Dynamitehawk in reply to Melrank

I like that.

Jeremy Wilhelm

I wish Withey was on the floor still - #1-5 on the jerseys

Melrank

Little Dipper sighting.

Allen Shepard

Wesley got away with a shuffle step...

Farsidehawk in reply to Jaybate

I hope he sticks around though. He isn't that far from "getting it"

Melrank

Coach Self: "Hey, Zebra, you tried the BBQ across the street?"

Jaybate in reply to Danr

Agreed. Naadir is in this weird state. He's learning to fight over picks. But at the same time blow-by's one on one keep happening.

Ljmhawk in reply to Jaybate

just because it didn't go in doesn't mean it's not a nice stroke. Elijah has a nice stroke and he can't hit anything

Lajayhawk in reply to Ljmhawk

Then come up with a better one. No negative Nancys with no suggestions around here.... :)

Jaybate

White doesn't look horrible. But he does nothing beyond his own defensive space. Nice stroke one time. Not nice stroke the nest time.

Danr

Happier to see Tharpe fighting over screens on D than him jacking threes

Stuboro

Wazzu coach looks....constipated

Ljmhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

I vote NO for lego

07:59 left in Second Half
Washington State 31

Jesse Newell

WSU has made just 8 of 25 twos (32 percent). And this was a good two-point shooting team coming in.

Joe Satterwhite in reply to Jaybate

Debbie Downer

Melrank in reply to Duane Rice

Actually I think that's a winner.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Huh. Didn't seem like it was that long. Looks like he's not even writing sports anymore.

Danr

Got to get the ball to Withey after thar

Jaybate

The defense "looks" pretty uninspired, but its holding WSU to 30% on FGAs, and only 23% from trey.

On the other hand, without Withey's 7 blocks, the disruption stat would look only okay. 6 strips against 6 TOs.

Duane Rice

The Eraser

Stuboro

JEFé !!

Allen Shepard

Should have been a Withey dunk...

Lajayhawk

LEGO

Brian Haase

AWIII

Blakehalljay85

WHITE with the trey! Yes!!!

Jesse Newell

White with the smooth stroke for three.

Ljmhawk

tharpe has been solid this year so far...he can knock it down!

Jesse Newell in reply to Joe Satterwhite

2.

Blakehalljay85 in reply to Ljmhawk

Well, then we're in sync!

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

Two years, IIRC.

Blakehalljay85

Woo-hoo, Big Clyde in the letter jacket!

Ljmhawk in reply to Blakehalljay85

but billy was ONLY a shooter...bmac slashes, rebounds and shoots. I'm not just saying stand out there and throw up treys....I'm talking dunks, 11 ft jumpers and treys.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Did he only write for the LJWorld for a couple months? Seems like it wasn't very long. Sorry, don't mean to pry. Just curious.

Joe Satterwhite

Is Chaminade Division 3?

Jaycon11

Bevo. It's what's for dinner.

Lindhawk

Barnes should write a book on "how to do so little while having so much"

Lajayhawk

Thank God the crap-factory of a football game is over. God is indeed merciful....
