You can’t really learn much about an athlete by listening to him answer questions fired at him from all directions, especially in a group session in which the next query generally has little to do with the previous response. It’s no way to learn anything about Lagerald Vick, a long, lean, quiet, 6-foot-5 sophomore from Memphis, so I requested and was granted a one-on-one interview with him. What follows is a sampling of what he revealed about himself during our half-hour conversation.

Monday night was one of those games that Kansas coach Bill Self likes to refer to as “big-boy games.” And thanks to some of the biggest boys on the Kansas roster, the Jayhawks came away victorious, 76-72 over Iowa State at Hilton Coliseum. By Matt Tait
Monday night, in a match-up pitting the Big 12 preseason player of the year against arguably the best player in all of college basketball so far this season, Kansas senior Frank Mason III helped his team out-duel Iowa State’s Monte Morris at Hilton Coliseum in a 76-72. By Matt Tait
No one on the Kansas basketball team expected it to be easy to stay unbeaten in Big 12 play — not with the Jayhawks playing a solid Iowa State team in front of a malicious Hilton Coliseum crowd Monday night.
For the second week in a row and the fourth time this season, Kansas freshman Josh Jackson played his way to Big 12 Newcomer of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday morning.
Josh Jackson might want to try to trick his mind into believing that every time he goes to the line it’s a late-game situation because, as seems to be the case in all areas of his game, the later a close game progresses, the better he performs.

Forget the lofty ranking, the 5-0 start in Big 12 play or the 16-game winning streak the team currently is riding. For Kansas guards Frank Mason III and Devonte’ Graham, the focus was on something that, at least for the moment, is much more important than any of those things — winning in Ames, Iowa. By Matt Tait
With his team in a dogfight and crunch time quickly approaching, Kansas freshman Josh Jackson was whistled for a charging foul on a bucket that, had it stood, would have given the Jayhawks their first lead of the game. By Matt Tait
In preparation for his first trip to Allen Fieldhouse as a head coach, Oklahoma State’s Brad Underwood got right to the essence of what makes Kansas such a tough team when he wrote one word next to Josh Jackson’s name on the scouting report: “Dog.” By Tom Keegan
Fans, critics and analysts alike, have been saying all season that the time would come when the Kansas men’s basketball team would not shoot the ball well from the outside and would not be able to rely on the 3-point shot to bury an opponent. By Matt Tait
With a balanced effort from its starting five, No. 2-ranked Kansas basketball scraped together just enough offense to defeat underdog Oklahoma State, 87-80, Saturday afternoon at Allen Fieldhouse.
When it comes to recruiting, there are few things as valuable as making it official. And on Friday evening, that's exactly what the Kansas men's basketball team did with Arizona State transfer Sam Cunliffe. By Matt Tait
An inexperienced player still paralyzed by thinking about what he’s supposed to be doing, instead of instinctively doing it, Kansas sophomore Lagerald Vick too often is neither here nor there, rather over there, outside the play.
