Rio Adams with an over-the-head, no-look pass to Withey for a slam. He's looked much more comfortable than he did in Europe.

I've always thought the same thing myself. It doesn't make any sense.

Jesse Newell

White puts in a layup for the first two.

Jesse Newell

Crimson has Ellis, too.

Jesse Newell

Crimson: Wesley, Adams, Roberts, Releford, Self, Withey, Johnson.

D_prowess

KU needs to post the videos themselves. Don't think they ever do but people would love it and it would give so much more exposure to the team and program! Don't know why they don't.

Jesse Newell

Blue team: Traylor, Garrett, Lucas, Young, McLemore, Ellis, White, Tharpe.

Jesse Newell

Should be three different videos below. If two are repeated, give it a refresh.

Jesse Newell in reply to Ku1992

Nope, not from me. I'm sure other folks will have that posted tomorrow. Will take some time to process that, as those videos were pretty long.

Ku1992

Jesse Newell

KU players just made it through introduction. It's foggy in here.

Dynamitehawk

Signing off. My wife needs attention <-- stoopid UNC grad.

Lajayhawk

Love me some Bill Self speeches.

Jesse Newell

Self: People can talk about their respective schools and how good they've got it. Nobody's got it as good as we do here in Lawrence, Kansas.

Jesse Newell

Self: "Even though rosters change at Kansas, expectations don't."

Jesse Newell

Self: Last year we came in here and told you to enjoy the process. And you know what? The process turned out OK last year.

Jesse Newell

Self: "You guys are lucky. I heard they turned down 2,000 people that wanted to come tonight." Fans laugh.

Jesse Newell

Bill Self walks out to mid-court with a mic.

Jesse Newell

Showing all the 'Hawks in the NBA on the video board. Loudest cheer for Thomas Robinson. Paul Pierce was second. Tyshawn Taylor was third.

Stupidmichael

I'm scared.

Jesse Newell

Carolyn Davis led all KU women's players with six points. Moved well considering her ACL injury last year.

Jesse Newell

I heard him say he'd welcome bad weather tomorrow to help slow down OSU's offense.

Jesse Newell in reply to Jesse Newell

OK, I'm back. Sounds like Charlie Weis just talked to the crowd a few minutes ago. Seemed to be received well.

Phil Leister

Can't get off schedule, I guess.

Marcus Balzer

First Baby Jay's head comes off, next the lights go off. The Mayans may be on to something.

Jesse Newell

Game is being resumed with lights still dimmed. Interesting.

Jesse Newell

Lights just were dimmed while the women were playing. "Timeout on the floor" is the quick call from the PA guy.

Jesse Newell

Charlie Weis next to David Booth next to Sheahon Zenger on the baseline.

Jesse Newell

Twelve minutes on the clock for the ladies. Monica Engelman starts with a running jumper.
