Jesse Newell

KU closes out the easy win.

Vernon Riggs

I am thankful that Twitter was not around my freshman year.

Ku2004daniel

on to Ames! RCJGKU

Vernon Riggs in reply to Brian Powell

All freshmen get stupid once in their first year. Twitter has just put a spotlight on the stupid things.

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Lawkan

Rio doesn't help the cause...he's a TO waiting to happen.

Brian Powell in reply to Vernon Riggs

doesn't even look like they even walk in to the weight room by themselves?

Lajayhawk

Rock Chalk

Ku2004daniel

pretty close prediction Jesse

Jay Krueger

You were close, Jesse

Brad Swisher in reply to Vernon Riggs

+1000

Brian Powell in reply to Aircapjay

if he kept his mouth shut and slowly built up trust, he'd start next year for sure or come off the bench for Tharpe.. Hopefully he wises up, because we could use him next year.

Lawkan

If you were a top recruit and couldn't get in the way EJ and Tharpe are playing you would be frustrated too.

Vernon Riggs in reply to Brian Powell

Who do you want Coach Hudy to spend time with Evan or Perry?

Ku2004daniel

brick city

Kirkwood in reply to Brian Powell

He feels he's intitled to play as a freshman phenom!

Allen Shepard

nope.

Brian Powell

none of the coaches sons have to use the weight training?

Bwag in reply to Ku2004daniel

Because it would go down

Aircapjay in reply to Brian Powell

I think he feels he should be a starter.

Allen Shepard

missed free throw and a Tyler Self three make you the winner of a chicken dinner Jesse

Ku2004daniel

loudest cheer of the game

Jayhawkinatl

Sleepy Roberts!

Brian Powell

so what's Rio's beef on Twitter?

Brad Swisher

TSelf needs to hit a 3

Kirkwood

It's to bad that when the bench players get in this late in the game with such a big lead they tend to just go through the motions instead of playing sharp bball. Not a good way to make a good impression.

Ku2004daniel

we want Tyler! Las Nepotistas Completas!

Bwag in reply to Jesse Newell

Okay now

Jesse Newell in reply to Bwag

Not all of them yet.

Ku2004daniel

interesting rule

Bwag

Las Nepotistas

Ku2004daniel

Las Nepotistas!

Rolland Remmert

Rio's on the floor.......Self is shaking his head

Jesse Newell

Official says, "I was out of bounds" on that call. Pretty funny.

Bwag

Ku2004daniel

Stupidmichael

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Jayhawkinatl

Told ya.

Allen Shepard

Ku2004daniel

Loved downtown TerryBrown's stroke!

Allen Shepard

Come on, have faith, White's a shooter

Vernon Riggs

I don't think Rio will have negative tweets tonight

Bwag

Niko ugliest shot form since Terry Brown who would hit though

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Jesse Newell

Yep!

Jesse Newell

Will White ruin the perfect day at the line for KU?

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

When we're up 30. Ridiculous.

Ku2004daniel

I'm excited to see Conner Frankamp next year

Jayhawkinatl

Niko in before Rio!

Brad Swisher

Check for Rio tweets after the game...

Jesse Newell

KU now 17-for-17 from the line.

Ku2004daniel

But it seems he and AWIII have switched spots in the depth chart

Bwag

He got the steal

Brian Powell

Rio and Tharpe are going to be fun to watch next year :)

Brianna Zaleski

Rio not playing to this point a message?

Ku2004daniel

Rio is in

Lajayhawk

Seriously... is Rio not going to play at all?

Boouk

If Rio isn't in by the 1:30 mark that really says something.

Lawkan

Withey is the player of the year.

Bwag in reply to Brad Swisher

Except ISU is going to be bombing

Brad Swisher in reply to Ku2004daniel

No doubt, gonna be like the Ok St game

Bwag

Our movement in half court has been better today but ugly there

Ku2004daniel

Brad Swisher in reply to Jesse Newell

Ku2004daniel

Brian Powell in reply to Stupidmichael

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Stupidmichael

Stupidmichael

Ku2004daniel

I love Bmac's outside stroke but I wanna see more Bmac drives too!

Jesse Newell

I'm going to need some defense from Las Nepotistas to get 77-45 right.

Jesse Newell

Lots of sun shining through the windows here.

Ku2004daniel

Brian Powell

Z00land3r

Lawkan in reply to Brian Powell

Jesse Newell in reply to Ku2004daniel

Fourth-worst nationally I think is what I had in the Five-minute Scout.

Surrealku

sweet move, Perry.

Boouk

Any "we want Jones" chants Jesse?

Jesse Newell

KU now 13-for-13 from the line. Made its free throws in the wrong TCU game.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

With the sun in his face, he drops one.

Ku2004daniel

TCU is the worst free throw shooting team I think I've seen us play this year. ugly

Brian Powell

wow, I like the sun coming in .. but right on the FT shooter?

Lajayhawk

GHOST has kind of sleep walked thru much of this game.

Boouk

Any "we want Jones" or "we want Wislow" chants Jesse?

Ku2004daniel

good to see Releford make both free throws. I was mystified when he missed two in a row in that OSU game

Jesse Newell

Crossland is a terrible free throw shooter. 33 of 73 coming in.

Lajayhawk

576 posts? Weak......

Duane Rice in reply to Dynamitehawk
