Perry Ellis scored 14 points on 6-for-7 shooting, leading the Blue team to a 66-40 win over Crimson at Late Night in the Phog.
In his unofficial debut, Andrew Wiggins scored 12 points on 6-for-8 shooting, making all six of his two-point attempts.
Jamari Traylor added 10 points on 5-for-5 shooting, while Tarik Black had 10 points on 5-for-6 accuracy. Naadir Tharpe chipped in 10 points (4-for-4 shooting) with seven assists and no turnovers.
The game didn't involve much defense, and KU coach Bill Self said afterwards he was disappointed with his players' effort in the scrimmage.
Andrew White III led the Crimson team with 14 points on 6-for-9 shooting with three steals.
KU will open the exhibition season on Oct. 29 with a home game against Pitt State.
not sure if anyone caught this, or if it even means anything but bill self said "it's about time to hang one more banner up there" ... think about that ... one more banner, it's almost as if he's saying one more championship and he's off to the NBA ... i personally would like to see 20 more banners up there ... putting a number on it just leads me to think there's an end near
Does anyone have a box score for the scrimmage. I know it doesn't matter and it is not a real game but I think it would be interesting to see.
Jaybate........How was your summer? Any trips to Italy?
Next year, have Late Night at the stadium after the homecoming game. One ticket gets you both games. Once you leave the stadium you cannot get back in. You get a sell out crowd staying for the entire game and the largest Late Night ever. A portable court should not take too long to install and every other programs would be playing catch up to top that.
Self said the freshmen were nervous, even though they told him before they wouldn't be.
Self says Tarik Black was probably the best player out there.
Self says patience is important when you're coaching a young team, but he doesn't want to make excuses for guys because they're young.
Self says that wasn't ball tonight. Anyone can score if nobody plays defense.
Self said he feels awful for the people who couldn't get in tonight. He said he understands fire codes, but he feels bad for those who couldn't get in.
Self said he's disappointed with how his team played tonight.
Thanks again Jermio. The link was a little pixelated at times but watchable; probably better than ESPN3 :)
Be very afraid.
Come on people. It was a fun scrimmage designed to showcase dunks; didn't you see when CF got out of the way and let Wigging dunk?
I would not read much on how well they are playing based on this game. Having said that, I think this might be one of those rare years when the offense is better than the defense. Scoring will not be an issue this year; way too many guns. Ellis was all business and solid.
Did Ellis put up 20 points tonight. He is the leader of the team at this point.
Pretty ugly, but it will be an interesting season
Will put up videos as soon as I can upload them.
Calipari is laughing his aZZ off right now.
Cal is probably texting Bill and saying, "See? See what I've been telling you. You're going to have pulmonary embolism coaching these kinds of players. I've aged 7 years in two coaching these OADs. I'm telling, you, Bill, whatever they are paying you, it isn't enough for what you are about to go through, and what I've been going through now for four years!!!!!!"
In that Billy Thomas?
It wasn't that bad?
It was worse!!!!
What was Black saying to the fans?
Eddie Sutton is watching this from his rocking chair down on Grand Lake of the Cherokees, and he is saying, "Oooooh, weeeee, Billy Boy,have you got your work cut out for you, or what? You ain't got but four players that have a clue about college basketball. No wonder you are telling your fans to take it easy."
Have doubts about black over the long haul, but I like what I see tonight
Bill in mid-season form on the butt chewin
Self jawing and raising hell at a scrimmage? Love it!
Tarik is playing the best of anyone on the floor.
Has anyone crashed into Greene tonight then fled the scene?
Tarik is looking good tonight.
That was fun, hearing Bill comment on his players for so much of the scrimmage.
AW3, Perry and Wiggins ain't playing around.
Aw better get back on aw3
Hi jayhawk Nation. is there any streeming online?
AW3 for the 3333
Yep. No defense
Bill Self is just ripping on the team's ability to play defense on ESPN3 right now
Scrimmages will be harder than some games for this team
KU is definitely not betraying any defensive schemes here.
Hunter is doing a good job of shoving off of Joel, and he drains one too.
White for the red shirt!
selden is the kind of guy you just get the hell out of the way from
Tarik has a big, beautiful smile.
The freshman are all grins and the returning players are already looking serious.
plz for the love of god espn not during the scrimmage
Perry just looks ALL business.
Conner can flush it easy. I'm feeling better all the time about CF.
Justin knows how its done.
I hope some of these guys can dunk in games better than they can dunk in practice.
Conner can get up and flush.
Jerrance's kid already has awesome presence.
Let the dunks begin
The older you get the more you cherish those kinds of moments, but...as I remind myself each day...he not busy being born is busy dying. I guaranty the kids out there today are finding their own ways to do this their own ways that they will one day be able to look back on fondly, too. It is the way of things. I go back to pre Late Night and I often wonder if the kids today get to have the kind of fun we used to have camping out over night before the games to make sure we got in to sit behind the opposing team's bench and toss ice all over the likes of Bob Knight. But life goes on and each generation of kids finds the new path.
Finally. Intros starting!
try to refresh again. 3 has issues.
Are they going to show the scrimmage on ESPN 3?
Any other live feeds? ESPN3 blacked out.
Kurtis is sooooooo ready for an HC job. Don't want to lose him, but he has the presence to head a program at a major.
Whatever the problem is with ESPN3, hopefully will be fixed by the time we take on Pitt State. This will assist us fans that can't be home to watch to be able to see the game.
Here's Weis from earlier:
espn3 is having tech difficulties
Back in the early late night days, you could go out, have some fun, stagger into AFH at about 11 and watch Ostertag clank a couple dunks.
Notice the bitchin about the production by MS Jesse? This is NEWS and needs to be addressed by the poobahs at kuathletics.
Espn3 just shows 5 min of the women's scrimmage...any ideas?
It was before the video. The production SUCKS. MS is great, but production of live events has NEVER been their strong suit.
Can this guy count? Sept. 27 wasn't 15 days ago..
why couldn't they show the dream on video?
It's the start of the Dream On video. Not sure how much they can show of that anyway.
Nobody cares about the swimming and diving team or about how well the floors are being cleaned... take the damn break then
TV production SUCKS. Interviewing swimming coach while they do the alma mater and rock chalk chant. The lights go down, then off to a commercial.
