Kansas at TT coverage

Kansas defeats Texas Tech, 60-46

  • 3 p.m., Jan. 12, 2013
  • United Spirit Arena, Lubbock, TX

FINAL: KU finishes strong, knocks out Texas Tech, 60-46

Kevin Young posted a team-high 14 points on 7-for-9 shooting, leading the Kansas men's basketball team to a 60-46 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon at United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas.

With Tech slowing down the tempo, KU led just 27-25 at halftime before pulling away.

The Jayhawks were just 5-for-18 from the floor in the first half (28 percent), which was the fewest made baskets in a half for KU since it made six shots in the first half against Oklahoma State on Feb. 13, 2006.

KU followed that with a 60.9-percent shooting mark in the second half (14-for-23).

Jeff Withey and Travis Releford added 12 points apiece, while Ben McLemore chipped in 10.

The Jayhawks scored a season-low 60 points, marking their lowest output since scoring 59 in the NCAA championship game against Kentucky last season.

KU (14-1) will play host to Baylor at 8 p.m. Monday.

Duane Rice

does anybody think that kensucky was using the same strategy that self used against tech.

Jaybate in reply to Duane Rice

Cal was told he would not be allowed to win this year. Its Stumpy Miller's team's turn this season. They were who got valved all the excess talent. But Stumpy is kind of underachieving.

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Duane Rice

Sounds like a funeral at Rupp...and the team showed up.

Everrisinghawk

Wow kentucky looks like sh!t

Ben Kane

A&M up 14 now... oops now 12. 21 seconds left, A&M at line.

Duane Rice

wow kensucky looks like they gave up

Jaybate in reply to Brianna Zaleski

I thought Walker was good, too, but then Self was just dinking around this game.

Jayhawkinatl

Think that ends UK's home court streak at 2.

Lawkan in reply to Jmfitz85

Carolina is in trouble too.

Everrisinghawk

Did anyone else lose the game with a minute thirty left on tv?

Jaybate in reply to Ben Kane

Great line, chuck.

Duane Rice

We better figure out our offence before monday. 5min and 10min fg drought will not cut it against baylor.

Jmfitz85

here's to KY not making the tournament

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Boouk

A&M

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Boouk

A&M

Ben Kane in reply to Jaybate

if kansas has taught me anything, it's never over if you're within ten under a minute.

Rolland Remmert

Keep it together on. Mon. fellows. I'll be enjoying the hospitality of the other great KU Venue. KU Med...probably won't be awake yet for the game. Expect nothing but a real breakout

Boouk

Who did UK lose to?

Brian Powell

gonna go finish the ISU game replay..

Brianna Zaleski

All in all, I was impressed w TT. I look for that coach to make an impact there or elsewhere in the near future

Stupidmichael in reply to Jesse Newell

Hmm, glad I missed the last three minutes. Stupid tv.

Jayhawkinatl

Ooooops...14.

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Lawkan

Pundits have said he did well last year bc he had senior leadership. This year, none.

Jayhawkinatl

Horrible 16-point win. LOL

Lawkan in reply to Duane Rice

I have been getting nothing but commercials too.

Jaybate

Gillispie is roaring somewhere.

Aircapjay

KU has now played their way out of Ken Pomeroy's top 10.

Lajayhawk

Back to playoff football....

Jaybate

Walker knows he's been schooled.

Lajayhawk

Win is a win.

ROCK CHALK

Duane Rice in reply to Stupidmichael

you sure you didnt channel surf.

Darin Bradley

Rock Chalk !

FINAL
Kansas 60
TT 46

Jesse Newell

KU closes out the victory.

Jayhawkinatl

Will only be 16 behind UK now.

Jaybate in reply to Ben Kane

It depends on the refs. :-)

Stupidmichael

Seriously. My tv station is just showing commercials

Aircapjay

The SONS could close out this well.

Ben Kane

i don't see kentucky coming back. down 9 with a minute left.

Boouk

What's happening in the UK game?

Jaybate

Did anyone see AW3 actually stick his rump out on that screen?

I haven't seen that since YMCA league games.

Darin Bradley in reply to Jaybate

ok, ok, jaybate knows all :)

Aircapjay

Closing out bad.

Lawkan

I don't like Calipari but he did a great job with that team last year. Getting one and dones to play team ball and defense can't be easy.

Jesse Newell in reply to Jaybate

Dumb that he's a sixth man. Walker should play his best player more, not less.

Crimsonphoenix

Not a bad chant for an away game!

Jmfitz85

I can't watch the game is self pretty upset? I'd be if i were him ... he knows if they don't figure something out then come march we'll be making an early exit

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

Yep, he's quite a sixth man.

Lajayhawk

ROCK CHALK CHANT!

Brian Powell in reply to Jesse Newell

was curious.... thought KY was catching up a bit more than that!

Jesse Newell

There are Crockett's first points.

Crimsonphoenix in reply to Darin Bradley

I would hope he doesn't want to touch his players, might have a Mangino situation on our hands...

Jaybate in reply to Darin Bradley

Amazing what you're eyes will see when you open them.

IT was the most half arsed huddle break ever.

Jayhawkinatl

Will will have picked up 4 games on UK to date.

Stupidmichael

Uh..... Anyone else just lose the feed?

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Crimsonphoenix

Right there with you, but Coach K has some messed up stuff going on in the background. Not illegal but Saban-like with the team and Urban Meyer-like with family.

Lajayhawk

The one thing I will say about Kentucky, is this year's team shows Calipari's coaching ability. When his one and done talent can't beat people simply on their athletic ability alone.......... Well, you get the picture.

Jayhawkinatl

Rupp sounds empty! Too funny.

Darin Bradley in reply to Jaybate

ESPN3 told you Self didn't want to touch his players and they didn't want to touch him..... um, ok.

Bwag

Need UK to lose, lose, lose.

Brianna Zaleski in reply to Lajayhawk

SWISH!!!!

Jayhawk470 in reply to Jayhawkinatl

That would make them 0-for-2 against Texas teams (they lost to Baylor).

Jesse Newell

Box score has KU with seven dunks today.

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Lajayhawk

LMAO

Kufaninflorida

much better second half

Theend

I told you KU would win by 10-15. I was wrong.

Brianna Zaleski

Man I hate to be critical of looks, but that big dude from TT has a beak. This coming from an Italian with a nig schnoz himself

Lajayhawk

Mizzou v. Kentucky... I cheer for a tornado.

Kufaninflorida

Much better second half

Jaybate in reply to Darin Bradley

ESPN3

To router.

To box.

To flat screen.

To rods and cones.

To optic nerve.

To cortex.

Jayhawkinatl

Game over! UK down by 10 with 1:20 to go.

Bwag

Can't root for UK. We're going to catch them in all time wins.

01:39 left in Second Half
Kansas 60
TT 42

Jesse Newell

Texas Tech with just 17 second-half points.

Crimsonphoenix in reply to MDL/kuae99

You kidding me? Would never root for Mizzery over even the Dookies, I would be happy if the tiggers lost every game they ever played.

Jayhawk470

Whatever Bill Self said in the locker room at intermission, it worked.

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Jayhawkinatl

Oh, yes. The only one that's a hard call is Dook v Misery.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Oh, wait, sorry, I misread it. Makes sense now.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Not sure I understand that comment.....

Crimsonphoenix in reply to Jayhawkinatl

I will never root for Mizzou, EVER.

Jaybate

Sure, this is how a team not being jerked by a coach plays when they are about to be 14-1 against a bottom tier team. :-)

Darin Bradley in reply to Jaybate

?? Where are you getting that from?

Jesse Newell in reply to Brian Powell

Coming into the game, Withey had 23 dunks, McLemore had 22 and Young had 10.

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Lajayhawk

Hate to admit, but will pull for UK against Mizzou.

MDL/kuae99

Why is the band playing the Stanford fight song?

Jaybate

Self didn't even want to touch them. They didn't even want to touch him in the huddle break.

02:37 left in Second Half
Kansas 60
TT 42

Jesse Newell

Young leads KU with 16 points.

Lajayhawk in reply to Ben Kane

Kentucky just not very good. Which helps out mizzou a lot....

Stupidmichael

Self AND Dooley both look awfully red.

Brian Powell

is KY leading the team in dunks now??

Jaybate

Every time the guys score they look over at the bench and pracitcally sneer at Self.

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Ben Kane

Turner with 40+!

Darin Bradley

Booya!!

Lajayhawk in reply to Jessejayhawk

Seriously?? WTF were they thinkin?

Jesse Newell

Didn't realize Crockett had no points on 0-for-6 shooting. Great defense on him. He's averaging 15 per game.

Ben Kane

ooooooo KY might be going down... A&M up 8 and at the foul line, under 2 to go.

Mariomiracle15 in reply to Jesse Newell

Im not arguing about his draft status... In terms of talent and potential for this team the next few years, I see no reason why he couldn't become so much better. Its obvious he has that nba potential and ability, but one more year would make him a complete allstar and our team favs for the ship next year

Jessejayhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

Just remember, the coyboys and indians fought over that, WHY???

MDL/kuae99

Arthur Miller, is that you?

Lajayhawk in reply to Crimsonphoenix

I'm not getting involved in this argument, but.... that was really freakin' funny.

Jaybate

This is like playing a game without a coach.

Just a guy standing on the lines needling people.

Crimsonphoenix

Guys, this is just because Bill Self told them to start playing basketball, before he said, "Guys, don't play basketball."
