Kansas-Fort Hays State Notes


Collins starts strong

KU sophomore guard Sherron Collins racked up a game-high 18 points and 5 assists in just 23 minutes in Thursday's exhibition game against Pitt State.

Stewart sees strength in defense

KU senior guard Rodrick Stewart will try to carry on the momentum from a great opening evening in the Hawks' final exhibition game tomorrow night.

¢ KU has won all four meetings against FHSU, including one exhibition game. KU won the last meeting, 96-62, on Nov. 9, 2005, in Allen Fieldhouse.

¢ Mark Johnson is 119-55 in seven seasons at Fort Hays State. He ranks fifth in school history in winning percentage and sixth on the all-time wins list. A 27-4 mark and NCAA Regional Semifinal appearance in 2005-06 has been the Tigers' best season under Johnson.

¢ Colin Olberding, a 6-0 junior from Seneca, and Ryan Hermann, 6-6 from Abilene, averaged 2.8 and 2.5 points a year ago. They are the Tigers' leading returning scorers.

¢ Six players on this year's roster are transfers. Jake Sims is the lone NCAA Division I transfer out of Gardner-Webb. Sims played two seasons at Dodge City Community College before transferring to GWU. Evans, Jeffries, LaTravis Turner, Charles Robinson and Shawn Emerick all played juco ball.

¢ KU has won 27 straight home exhibition games. The Jayhawks are 45-7 all-time in exhibitions (41-4 in Allen) and 13-0 under Bill Self.

Tigers?!? They're calling themselves Tigers?

It's all about the "benjamins" for Fort Hays St. They do just fine in that category.

The "Next Game" section on this site needs to be fixed.

  1. This web page is called . It should contain basketball information, not information related to other sports (even football).

  2. If the Journal World insists on putting information for other sports on this same page, it should clearly note which sport that is. Then, in fairness, should it not also include information for crew, soccer, tennis, cross-country, etc?

  3. Regardless of whether the Journal World desires to include information related to other sports, they should always include a "Next Basketball Game" spot. It's currently missing, even though there's a basketball game today. It hasn't been announced in the most obvious place at all. Some of us don't live in Kansas, so we rely on this site for information of that sort.
