KU brought the ball down slowly at the three minute mark, leading to a drive by Rush and foul by Thompson, which sent Rush to the line. His first free throw fell short, but he hit the second, putting KU up 74-61.

Pregame

SAN ANTONIO - All the Roy Williams hype, Tyler Hansbrough defense hype, fast-paced game hype, throw it all out the window, because tip time has finally arrived for Kansas University and North Carolina. The two schools tangle tonight in the Alamodome with a trip to Monday's national championship game on the line.

The winner will face Memphis, who ousted UCLA 78-63 in the night's first semi.

Besides the storyline of Roy Williams coaching against KU for the first time since his 2003 departure for his alma mater, how KU plans on stopping junior big man Tyler Hansbrough remains the most popular topic of discussion.

Arguably the nation's top college basketball player, Hansbrough is averaging 22.8 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. His most valuable contribution, though, isn't measured by numbers. His 40-minute intensity has drawn him the nickname 'Psycho-T', meaning the Jayhawk big men will have to match it to have a chance.

The Tar Heels play fast, averaging 89.2 points per game. KU has said all week it wants to run with them, and to do so, KU will need an answer for sophomore point guard Ty Lawson, averaging 12.8 points per game. He has 163 assists in 31 games played this season to just 68 turnovers.

Tip-off is set for 7:47 p.m. KU will be wearing its road blue uniforms, Carolina in its home whites.

I remember another sensational freshman back in '03. I don't believe that Rose is another Anthony. Regardless, I believe Self will have the guys ready on Monday.

johnsont1 11 years, 8 months ago

I was hoping we'd wear the reds as well. We probably should save them for the more important games. ;)

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

GAME ON! Let's do this.Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

What an awesome prayer. I just made my whole family repeat the prayer with me. I may print and frame that prayer to hang in my house. Great intro for our boys. Lets kill some baby blue beatches.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk- GAME ON! and DRINK ON!I've been saving up all week for this one!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

is it too early to say we look AMAZING!?!rock chalk!!!

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

Kaun missed an easy one...FT and easy layups, we have to make them all. God willing...we will win!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Awesome!!!!!!! We look loose and like we're just ballin.Carolina looks really really tight.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Let's keep up this intensity...UNC looks flustered!!!!!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

i have no words...we are all in, this is our game, and we own unc right now!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

We look amazing right now. I have not seen us play this loose and intense in a long time. Defense is great, offense is great, now lets keep it up!!!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

kupark- what game are you watching! Yes there will be turnovers, but as long as Carolina has more than we are in good shape.Update KU's guards just got named to the FBI's most wanted list for steals!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

truehawkfan - EXACTLY!!! loose and intense...that's it!

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

Game is too young and we have some foul issues...don't need to be this aggressive especially with the lead we have.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Total destruction of UNC goin' on. Roy is too stubborn to call TOs...it would mean admitting defeat!!!!

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

There it is, Billy Packer just called it game over!Things may have come home to roost for Roy.

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

we're making up for the horrible shooting against Davidson! Great job!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

This is what playin' loose is all about.

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

It ain't over until it's over! I can't breath easily until the game is over.

Dale Koch 11 years, 8 months ago

Remember, Roy never could win the big games when he coached KU either. His first championship wasn't his recruits or he wouldn't have won then either.

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

Don't get too excited everyone - there is a ton of game left and fouls are piling up a bit. There is a ton of time left for UNC to make a run - I like where we're at, but we got a ways to go.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

We don't need stoppage...we're en fuego!!!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Let's hope that poke to the eye isn't serious. We really need DA.

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

Awesome lance - our guys are going to fill that FBI list by the end of the night if they can keep this up.Breathe...breathe....

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Correct, Banner...we must be wise with the fouls.

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

I agree Banner - Let's wait until the final buzzer sounds. LOTS of game left.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

At least I don't feel like i'm going to puke anymore... looks like I passed that feeling onto Roy.

justanotherfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Text message I just received from a friend.Wow.That about sums it up

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

again, COLE you are THE MAIN right now!!!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Psycho T should have gone to Duke! He's got that duke flop down pat!

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

Yeah, those charges are going to add up. The guys have to play a bit smarter right now. It's a big lead, but if they get it down to 15 at half, there will still be an incredible amount of work to do. UNC is good - we shouldn't be blinded to that by the way this has gone so far.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

They just reeled off 7 straight!!! And they have the ball. We just started to relax....wrong thing to do with UNC.

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

jayhawkatl - I'm good with a crappy lineup right now if it will preserve fouls. They're really starting to add up - let Jeremy get some or someone else - now Mario and Brandon have two, Sasha has two, Djax has two. We gotta be careful or that "crappy lineup" may have to win this game for us.

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Even though we're still up by 20+ points I cringe everytime we waste an opportunity. TAKE CARE of the ball. This is UNC and I wont feel like it's done 'till it's actually done.

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

yes...just play loose and don't loose focus

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

take good shots so that we don't allow breaks and then play solid defense as we have been.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Now we look apprehensive. We need to get the ball down low again!!!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Remember, UNC came back from being down 18 to BC. Now granted we are no BC but just saying...TAKE CARE OF THE DAMN BALL and TAKE GOOD SHOTS!

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Wer're starting to choke.We've used too much energy early.This needs to be a grind it out second half.

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

why the heck are we SOOOO aggressive and nifty on the offensive end??!!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

They just trimmed 11 points off our lead. We need to be more deliberate with the ball. We started to shoot UNC back into the game. Hope Bill gets on them a little about being careless with the ball. Good ending by Sherron though.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

We're definitely get overly-aggressive...too many charges!!!!!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Good half. Terrible 5 minutes to close out the half though. We were frickin tired. Get your rest at the half boys, you will need it again for 20 more minutes.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

BRush, Sasha, and DJ should be well-rested for the 2nd half push to the finish.

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

I am going to ignore that comment about Self. Way to go coach!! you had us ready, and our boys look good. Get them settled down at half and lead us to the NC!!! GO SELF AND GO HAWKS>

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Cole is playing great...giving us a lot of quality minutes while Sasha sits on the pine.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Second that, truehawkfan. It's that sooballs clown again.

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

this shouldn't be a surprise, however...a team like UNC is going to make a run at some time during the game...but we are letting them use very little time...most of their points have been on transition during this run.the halftime couldn't have come early....we look tired. as billy said, we need to go inside again with those top-of-the-defense passes (high low offense).Please take care of the ball and avoid charges...stop being so nifty.

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

I agree jayhawkinatl, Cole is having the game of his life so far. Par for the course for us though, someone different stepping up each night.lance1jhawk - how's your drink? Fill 'er up!

ku98 11 years, 8 months ago

If somebody had told me 2hrs ago that we would be up by 17 at halftime, I would not have believed it, so I am going to try and ignore that 5-8 minute period where we stunk, and remain confident.We need to keep going inside. Hansbrough can take a charge, but that's all he does. We need to go in the low post.

jmason 11 years, 8 months ago

I think we know who Coach Brown is rooting for tonight, at the half with Bob and Pipe he continually said we when he was talking about the 'Hawks. We need to play smarter than we did the last five minutes. Rock Chalk!!!!!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

The amazing thing is we are outrebounding one of the top rebounding teams in the NCAA. Good job. Lets keep it up. Keep getting to loose balls, keep getting rebounds and UNC will have a very hard time getting all the way back in this game. They will make a run at some point. That is just the way they play. Lets take their run, survive it, then go one with the win.

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

Very good point ku98 - thank you. I'll get things back into perspective and hopefully enjoy an incredible second half.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Just play our style and we'll be alright. Just don't want our guys to play tight with such a big lead.

rcaltrider 11 years, 8 months ago

13 fouls on KU and 5 on UNC!! That is ridiculous!! Up 17 pts at the half playing 5 on 8 is pretty good! Call it even in the second half stripes and this won't be close.

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

lol - jmason - wonder who he would be rooting for if UNC was up by 17 at the half? J/K I'm sure he's saying "we" to both teams.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

They haven't seen defensive pressure like this all season.

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

I am already half way through my can of Cope!! But that was gone before the game started. I need another dip!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

How many of those were charges??? Five???

ku98 11 years, 8 months ago

The big difference in fouls worries me. I worry that the refs are going to do what it takes to try and keep UNC in the game.

justanotherfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Halftime analysis...Keys I identified early1) Attack the rim - We got about 10 layups early on. Later in the half we got away from that, but we attacked inside early. We need to get back to that.2) Keep Hansborough off the line - He's shot (and made) 4 FT's. He averages 10, so he's pretty close to his average on that. 3) Get the 50/50 balls - Just like attacking the rim, we got those in the first 13-14 minutes of the game, but didn't do that later in the half.We need a strong first 7 minutes in the second half.

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Get Calipari off the dadgum screen and lats start this second half already.

goldlighting 11 years, 8 months ago

I about had a heart attack when RR shot that 3 without a Kansas player past half court. Hopefully Self tells them to treat each possession like it is tied with 10 seconds on the clock.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

soobawls- (shaking head) never mind...Hawks come out loose and beware of the carolina run because its inevitable.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

We should get the ball to start the half too.

KU_DScooze 11 years, 8 months ago

Keep at it boys!!! Let's get em!!! Rock Chalk Jayhawks!!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Time for DA to step up and be THAT GUY who stars in the 2nd half. Isn't that what future NBA guys are supposed to do? C'mon DA...you have a wicked turn around jumper. Take it to Psycho T and let's go and get this win.ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

I thought the same thing goldlightning. I hope we got rested for this half. It is going to take the same type of play this half as we had the first half. Lets get this thing started. Hopefully the refs had a talk about the fouls they called that half. They had better even it up.

jmason 11 years, 8 months ago

A key stretch, which is obvious to all, is to the first TV timeout. We need to get back to pounding the ball inside and taking care of the ball.

landon_2003 11 years, 8 months ago

still up 17 if we stick to the things we did in the first 15 min of the game we should win. stop committing dumb fouls and keep rebounding and we should be alright. rock chalk baby!

George Powell 11 years, 8 months ago

I already have NC fans calling me from NC and wanting to know when I want that steak dinner.I keep telling them lots of game left.Jayhawks need to keep the intensity up, and quit the stupid shots and passes.Awesome Jayhawks from SC

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk- All filled up and ready to start this thing again!Its not over til the fat lady sings or Roy starts crying (which ever comes first)

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

We need to keep taking it to the big guy inside. Hansborough is not gonna foul. We need to keep it up foul or not we have to keep the pressure on.UNC will have another couple of runs coming we have to be ready. Aldrige is gonna be unstoppable next year. Look at him now!Keep Rockin Hawks!!!

larnedbear 11 years, 8 months ago

HAWKS ARE IN GREAT SHAPE!!! Kaun, Jackson, Chalmers should be well rested! Aldrich did a GREAT job! As long as the Hawks play solid defense and stay away from foul trouble, then the championship is 2 days away! GO JAYHAWKS, Victory is 20 minutes of court time away!!!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

trading baskets it is...i'll take it, b/c we'll still kill 'em by 20

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

ku98 -second that...but we still need our solid game...some of these calls i just don't understand...let's go HAWKS!!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

I feel another run coming...hope I'm wrong.

landon_2003 11 years, 8 months ago

i guess if TH falls down to the ground it's automatically a foul on ku.

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

jayhawkinatl - maybe you should take a walk for a bit - get out some nervous energy. You're vibe is very negative right now. They're doing ok right now.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

We've got to keep our composure. We can't allow the biggest comeback in Final Four history!!!!

Ed Fox 11 years, 8 months ago

soobawls - what has Self done? God you should be happy these things are anonymous.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

soobawls - get off our message boards, and go back to your sorry mizzou boards to complain about how great ku is...it's pathetic

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

OK it's official. My blood pressure is rising and the adrenaline is starting to flow.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

We're playing tight now...the roles have apparently switched.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

soobawls- BELOOOOOOOWWWWW ME!!!!go back to your mizzou board or whatever loser team you cheer for!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Come on, guys...snap out of this little funk.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

yes, we're a little tigher...but BY THE GRACE OF GOD (lord knows i prayed to him HARD tonight!) we WILL loosen up..it's OUR HAWKS!!! ROCK CHALK!!! LET'S GO BOYS!!!

Chicago_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

We can't seem to learn that UNC is great at drawing charges.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

YES!!! a call for us now...green has 3!

overseashawk 11 years, 8 months ago

I've never seen so many charges called in a game EVER!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

gotta hit a 3...it's mental now, we need a 3 to take this over...LET'S GO HAWKS!!!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

soobawls - in case you haven't noticed, everyone is IGNORING you now...get off our boards

Chicago_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

This is appalling to watch. I'd rather have gotten blown out from the tip than to have this happening.

ku98 11 years, 8 months ago

We still have the lead... let's calm down, and score some buckets. We'll be ok.

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Our run will come. Hang on everyone, this is gonna be a ride down the stretch.

landon_2003 11 years, 8 months ago

what are we doing on offense? stop dribbling around the 3 pt line...get it down inside and take care of the ball. i think i'm going to be sick.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Its a new game starting NOW!NH_JHawk pour 'em up all the way to the top.soobawls- once again suck it! go back to your loser school boards! or whatever hole you crawled out of.

18 fouls to 9. Yeah. That's calling it even. Typical f*cking UNC B.S.

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

looks like it might be a nail-biter after all...let's GO HAWKS!!! we deserve this one!!!

landon_2003 11 years, 8 months ago

free throws are going to be critical down the stretch....i am so nervous right now.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Let's hit these Cole and play some D and run clock.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Gotta put DJ back in...can't wait too long.

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

No need to be cautious now, Carolina is already back in it.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

landon_2003 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

sooTINYbawls- What are ya goona do when we win. I suggest drinking the magic kool-aid (jonestown style)

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

soTINYbawls -second that...'naugh said...let's all ignore him (again) now

ku98 11 years, 8 months ago

Finally a traveling call on Hansbrough.We have been waiting all game long!!!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Soobawls - Can you feel it slipping away from your Tarheels? Here comes the Kansas Jayhawks buddy!

Dale Koch 11 years, 8 months ago

Roy still can't win the big game. We are OK. Taking control again

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Where are the refs? Hansbrough is playing football while we play basketball.

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

Where are the refs? Hansbrough is playing football while we play basketball.lol...oh God! Please let us win the championship. I turned off the TV for a few mintues. I couldn't take it. What's the score?

Dale Koch 11 years, 8 months ago

who said bill was clueless, awesome coach, great game calling

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Soobawls is a Jayhawk. LOL.....you're not foolin anyone dude. The almight UNC is GOING DOWN!!!!ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK! Playing for a national championship while Roy and Soobawls are going home!ROOOOCCCCKKKK CCHCHHHHHAAAALLKKK JJJJAYYYYY HHHAAAWWWKKKKK

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

sootinybawls- I don't care that you hate Head Coach Bill Self. If you are a JAYHAWK then cheer us on!

DueFan 11 years, 8 months ago

With this win. I no longer care if we get blown out by Memphis. At All

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Note to soobawls- You are not ready for a keyboard!

Dale Koch 11 years, 8 months ago

we won't, we match up against them pretty well

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

second that, lance1jayhawk!!!CAN YOU HEAR THE ROCK CHALK KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

overseashawk 11 years, 8 months ago

It's four in the morning where I'm at and I don't think I'll sleep a wink tonight :-)

speedy 11 years, 8 months ago

ROY WHO????????? WHO CARES! great game KU!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOODBYE BFOREVER ROY!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

How about getting to watch Roy have to listen to the Rock Chalk chant?!?!?!Now we get to see him cry from the other side!!!!!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Score settled! Roy who?Rock chalk Jayhawk!!!

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Give Roy credit, he and his team showed class by not getting chippy at the end as well as congratulations at the end.Now did we shoot our wad tonight?

fansincewilt 11 years, 8 months ago

I thought I was going to have a heartattack when they came back. I am so proud of our Jayhawks! I believe Monday will be great. You can still hear the rock chalk.

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

Here's to all the sports commentators (all of which took UNC) the no#1 overall is going home. We are the jayhawks and we take a back seat to no one!!!! whether you want to recognize us or not!

speedy 11 years, 8 months ago

last week jay bilas and erin andrews both picked KU!

kupark 11 years, 8 months ago

We waited five years for this. Great win, great win! Wow, what a win. Still can't believe the deficit went from 28 to 4. WOW. What a Rush (yes, pun intended!).

fansincewilt 11 years, 8 months ago

I believe we have enough left to take care of Memphis. Our inside game is just too good to go down. Our guards are great. Rose will be a challenge. However, we showed we belong with any of them tonight.

justanotherfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Now that we have that behind us, on to Memphis. BTW, will all of the Bill Self haters (I'm looking at you soobawls) please shut up!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

RRRROOOOCCCCKKKKK CCCHHHAAALLLLKKKK JJJJAAAYYYHHHAAWWWKKKKWOOOOOO! YYEEEEAAAHHH!!KANSAS IS AWESOME!

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

Tonight I did not hear one commentator take KU! And then it was KU looks tired blaaa blaaa blaaa. Ever since this tournament started KU has had no zero none no recognition.

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

jayhawkinatl,I will say this team showed me something in locking down when it got close. That was a big time gut check.Flip over to ESPN, they are writing us off before this victory has went like warm.

ku98 11 years, 8 months ago

No one gave us a chance against UNC, and no one is giving us a chance against Memphis. That's ok.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Sweeeeet...all the ESPN pundits are picking Memphis to beat us.

overseashawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Jay Bilas and Hubert Davis picked us on Selection Sunday to win the whole thing. I'm already nervous about Monday! I think we match up well though. I just remember watching the game in 2003 at Louise's. After the game I'd never seen so many people so quiet. You could hear a pin drop on Mass.Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Root hard everybody!

okiedave 11 years, 8 months ago

Self out-coached Roy tonight. Great game Hawks. Now one more game!!!!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Awesome win tonight, but we have one more to go!Monday, lets come out loose and play like we did in the first half. Memphis really has never played with their backs against the ropes, like we had Carolina playing the entire game.Come out on monday and HIT 'em in the mouth!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

I agree, BC. We let up and then stomped on the pedal again near the end.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

We'll definitely have the size advantage down low against Memphis...we need to exploit it more than we did tonight.

ku98 11 years, 8 months ago

Sasha and Cole only combined for 12 points, but really had a positive impact on the game. They both fought hard, and in the 2nd half, Sasha really outmuscled Hansbrough .Bring on Memphis!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

We won it in '88 wearing the blues... Lets stick with the blues.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

I think Memphis' tallest guy is the rail-thin Dozier at 6-9.

tim deegan 11 years, 8 months ago

and cbs even stayed around to show a little post win ku love, unlike our last game where they cut straight back to regular shows. this game was never in doubt. monday...well we're used to taming Tigers!and i'm totally digging the two coast teams are out and the two mid US teams are in.i've bashed self before, and lamented williams leaving us here on these boards, but this goes a long way to feelin good again about those things.rockin an chalkin, looking for some net cuttin very soon.

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

We have the weapons, we have the coach and we have Danny Manning!!! We will prevail. Go Jayhawks!!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Maybe we should break out the retro unis???

Mike Johns 11 years, 8 months ago

ROCK CHALK BABY - way to stick it to roy

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

retro unis, let's do it...i'ts our turn again!!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

Man, the ESPN guys are spooging all over themselves about Memphis.

Mike Johns 11 years, 8 months ago

the only thing that could be better is to get the opportunity to beat ucla instead of memphis.

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

I think Dickie just unloaded all over Knight.

Steve Day 11 years, 8 months ago

Take that Benedict Williams. So glad we handed him is ass. Hope there is plenty of tissue for him to cry it all out. Rock Chalk fella's. One more, One more!!! This team is special.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

all do respect to Roy, really...he was great to us, understand why he went to UNC...good job...but we deserve this one...out coached, out played...good job Roy, but HCBS is doing better...GREAT JOB HCBS!!! YOU'RE THE MAN!!!

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 8 months ago

BRush and the seniors need to have a great swan song on Monday night.

stujayhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

cstevendayI agree! This team IS special...you could tell at the beginning of the season

babyjay84 11 years, 8 months ago

TYLER HANS-BROKEN!!!!!!!!! WIN IT ALL HAWKS!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Go to LJWORLD.com and check out the tower cam of downtown lawrence!

greg robinson 11 years, 8 months ago

OK Roy, I'm officially over it. Now you can root for your "second favorite team." That felt so good.

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

Here's the greatest part... Rush had 12 points and so did North Carolina.

Steve Gantz 11 years, 8 months ago

Yahoo headline right now, "Final four shocker", like we were double digit dawgs or something.

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

I LOVE THIS!!!!! WWWWWOOOOOOOHHHHHHOOOOOO!!! Go Hawks. Self did a great job tonight. The boys started to tighten up and he got us through it. I love these guys, I love this team. Lets go get some tiger a$$. I won't even be able to sleep tonight. soobawls, take your UNC Blewballs back to Missouri, and SUCK IT!!!! I was going to ignore your ignorant a$$, but it is just too easy now. Love you Roy, but Self is the man now. Basketball started here, and it will stay here, FOREVER!!

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

How I wish I was in Lawrence right now!!!! Jayhawks Rule!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Memphis Tigers... Tigers... KILL!!!!! God I HATE Tigers!Go get 'em guys!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Rockonku - I also wish I was in Lawrence. My brother and sister-in-law both own businesses on Mass St. and they said the scene is unbelieveable.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

point proven...it's a TEAM that wins a game, not a PLAYER...we are a TEAM, we play as a TEAM, and we win as a TEAM...Hansbrough is a great player, but our TEAM wins it, WILL win it...can't wait for monday Hawks...hope to be in Larryville celebrating!!!

johnsont1 11 years, 8 months ago

Just got back from a party in Grinnell, Iowa. I just wanted to say that it feels so good to have grown up in the city that hosts the greatest college basketball team in the country (as we'll prove on monday). Memphis and Kansas have very similar styles of play. However, in the end, Memphis will realize why Kansas truly is the home of the game of basketball. Rock Chalk Jayhawk, Go KU!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk - STILL got my drink on! WE'RE PLAYIN MONDAY NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!

Dale Kroening 11 years, 8 months ago

Its good we are the underdog again in Mondays game.Did we shoot our wad,I dont think so.KU will come out ready to prove something like they did today,and beat a good,but overconfident Memphis team on Monday night.They said we wouldnt stop TH,but look what happened.We will stop Rose and co. Monday and bring home the title.This team knows whats at stake.ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!

Joe Ross 11 years, 8 months ago

NOW CAN WE GET SOME RESPECT? NO? OKAY. LETS GO GET IT THEN.

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Dicky V just praised our perimeter Defense!! We have stepped up and peaked at the right time. Self is going to be one of the best coaches to coach at KU!!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk- What do your in-laws own? my wife and I both used to work downtown and are thinking about going back for the monday game. Oh by the way I have this awesome new version of the rock chalk song. If you want it let me know, and I will try to send ya a message.

Bob Houk 11 years, 8 months ago

Sooballs, I don't know how you can keep dissin the best coach in basketball today. I told you guys that Coach Self & the Jayhawks would win this one. Roy couldn't win with us and sure as hell didn't win against us tonight.It just goes to show those know-it-all announcers are the ones that don't have a clue about this wonderful game of basketball. We are already picked again to be the underdogs Mon. night. Give em hell Hawks you guys were awesome. We don't mind being called underdogs if we can win like we did tonite. Rock Chalk Jayhawks KU Remember what I said about being our time. 1988/2008

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

They just showed our record for the last 5 years. Self's worst record was 24-9. WOW!!! I love this guy. How can you even question a record like that. We have a great coach, great players, GREAT FANS!! We win by 7 on Monday night. That is my call

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

They will all respect us after Monday night!!! Let them say what they will. They don't know what we know!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk - my sister-in-law owns Kieu's (738 Mass St) . And my brother is a freelance photographer. www.photojs.com

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

North who? Memphis who? Now we can all let Roy go and realize it was time for him to go. Everything happens for a reason and now we see why. Tyler met a man tonight and his name is Cole Aldrige!!!!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk, can you say that prayer just one more time. I just read it again, and I frickin love it.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

kickass...i love kieu's! (i'm lance1's wife...yes, we live together, cheer together, blog amongst one another!) good to know our fellow jhawk 'love' connections, that much better! RCJHGKU!!!

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

We will !!! And then ESPN will switch to golf.

rockchalk80 11 years, 8 months ago

  1. what energy to start the game2. what a comeback - kudos to UNC for not folding3. what a finish by KU when UNC closed to within 4.it was fun to hear the ROCKCHALK chant with about 1:30 left in the game....finish...Beat Memphis!

phins13td 11 years, 8 months ago

KU given no respect and then they run UNC off thecourt.This was a beauty from start to finish. Unrealexcitement, best game I have seen since the 03 semiswhen KU freight trained Marquette.We are rockin and chalkin right into the BIG DANCE.I am so happy, I may not even sleep tonight.Bring it home boys.

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1, I want the prayer again Monday night. Love you guys, I am out.

Bob Houk 11 years, 8 months ago

Sooballs I don't know how you can say your a Jayhawk and keep giving Coach Self so much crap. I too think you must be from Missouri, and you sure are not a true Jayhawk. Go home 1988/2008

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

susyajhawk - That's awesome! Say hi to Thuy (pronounced "Twee") next time you go into Kieu's. She owns the store.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk - I just sent ya a private message with my e-mail. Hit me and I will send you the 2008 Rock Chalk chant.

ku_bringback_danny 11 years, 8 months ago

Ok,Lets win it all and show Bill how much SELF respect we have for him and lets for get about the dude whats his name Gary Williams sorry I mean Bob Williams no sorry again not the UCSB coach... O ya Roy see I forgot. Bill Self we love ya. Beak 'm Hawks Tame those Tigers!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk - I also sent you private msg. I just dont know how to get it on this site?

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

I can see the headline now. Jayhawks have forgotten about Roy. Memphis to win the championship, Kansas turns the ball over too much.Tuesday headlines. Jayhawks have forgotten about Roy as they cut down the net after the upset against Memphis.Rock Chalk!!!

Joe Ross 11 years, 8 months ago

RESPECT!Im tired of props always being given to UNC. I love Roy Williams, dont get me wrong. But I love Kansas 1000 times more. Im sick of hearing about North Carolina history and tradition. NO PROGRAM'S HISTORY is LONGER or RICHER than Kansas'. NONE!NONE, PEOPLE.Oh! Is this soapbox for me? Let me stand up on it then. (ahem...)We gave UNC Dean Smith. We donated Adolph Rupp to Kentucky. The three greatest programs in college basketball are inseparable from Kansas. NOT North Carolina. Not Kentucky. Kansas is the cradle of basketball. Can I get a Rock Chalk?Step back cause Im gonna preach it...North Carolina owes its success in large part to Dean Smith. Dean Smith owes his knowledge of the game to Phog Allen. WHOS YOUR DADDY, UNC??? Larry Brown's and Roy Williams' Grandpappy was Allen himself whether they realize it or not. Phog touches their style more than they know. Same with Rupp (and Pat Riley). James Naismith is here damnit! Can I get a Rock Chalk? Wilt was here. Danny is here. Kansas is larger than someone who decides to leave. That means ANYONE. THIS IS KANSAS BITCHES!!! Recognize!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

1:30 left in the game and ROCK CHALK CHANT...that is BY FAR the best feeling ever...can't even explain it...many of you know it...so, on that note...RROOOCCKKK CCHHHAAALLKK KKKKKKUUUU!!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

I love it JRoss. You deserve it. I deserve it. WE deserve it. PREACH on my brother because you are speaking the truth!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

Beautiful jross. Just pain beautiful. Preach on Preacher. ROCK CHALK!! Don't ever come off that soapbox. Stay up there until Monday night after we win, then get off for an hour, get some sleep, then get your beautiful a$$ back up there.

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

I need to correct Roy "we are the leading rebounding team in the country." "You were" the leading rebounding team in the country!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

I know I said I was out, but lets face it. I ain't sleepin tonight.

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

jross,Not only do we give you a Rock Chalk, but also an Amen!

jhawker137 11 years, 8 months ago

It's finally over after five years of Christmas wishes and Birthday Wishes, like a child!!!!But, it is not over, I don't want this to end with a North Carolina vicotory into the championship game.We need to win against Memphis.I hope we wear Red. It would be a big shocker to the nation to see us in Red!!!!Orange Bowl win in REDNational Championship Game in REDROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!!!

ku_bringback_danny 11 years, 8 months ago

Lets see on ESPN only 18% said we could win. Well that 18% rocks!!!!!! Only Jay called it!!! ESPN is still east coast bias. Dicky V Are U still on Roy's Jock or now are you now back with Coach K. How about some SELF Respect so some LOVE more not just when you come around once a year for game day. EAST COAST Bias!!! Rock Chalk Bill Self is Coach of the year!!!!!!

Joe Ross 11 years, 8 months ago

Somebody cut and paste this to UNC's message boards:For all of you saying Kansas should get over Roys leaving. CHECK. We're over it!Hold up, Im not done yet.If there was no Dean, thered be no Roy. If there was no Phog thered be no Dean. If there was no Kansas, thered be no Phog.Listen good Tar Heels. Its time to pay respect! We havent gotten anything from you that wasnt already OURS TO BEGIN WITH. That means Larry, Roy, or whoever. Before Self became head coach here, he assisted at Kansas. Before John Calipari went on to Memphis, he assisted where? Ill give you a hint: the answer is KANSAS.ALL ROADS LEAD TO LAWRENCE BITCHES!Of course I want to win the championship on Monday, but let me tell you something. THIS GAME...THIS ONE...this was nothing short of monumental. Kansas > UNC

BCRavenJHawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

jross,You are so right about this game, I mean let's face it the majority of the country probably felt this side of the bracket was the championship game.

Rockonku 11 years, 8 months ago

Tonight Jayhawks proved all they need to prove and you are right this game was monumental.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Yep- I bartended my way through school at Hockenburys Tavern in downtown (now Fatso's) then Louises downtown and Harbour Lights also downtown. I miss Lawrence a bunch and hopefully I can talk my boss into letting me off on monday and tuesday. I will post that prayer again though on monday no matter where i'm at.Rock Chalk JayhawkWin IT all!

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

have to disagree, bcraven...most of the country bet on unc and ucla...number 1 and 2...to battle it out in the national championship...we're the major 'upset' in this one, albeit at a number 1 seed...crazy, huh?!? i know...but we're still the underdog, yes...and we'll thrive b/c of it...yes...we are KANSAS!!!

Steve Gantz 11 years, 8 months ago

Enough of Kansas being the place where all b-ball starts.Who cares, that's ancient history! In my book UCLA has 10 or 11 championships has set the standard. (of course that' ancient history too) Let's get em! GO JHawks!

truehawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

lance and susya, you two are awesome and lance, lance, you are very lucky. My wife just said Rock Chalk, and went to bed with that look in her eye. Now I am really out. SWEET. This is the best night ever!! Love you guys and see you MONDAY!!

Joe Ross 11 years, 8 months ago

truehawk...go consummate the win! props to ya bro!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Soobawls? You there? Funny how he's dissappeared all of a sudden. He's probably on I-70 somewhere in Missouri.

kutravis 11 years, 8 months ago

life is good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ROCK CHALK!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk/susya - YOU ROCK!!! One more baby...gimme just one more!

johnsont1 11 years, 8 months ago

yes lance1jhawk, that was an epic prayer - i even recited it in front of the crowd i was watching the game with at college in iowa. haha have a good night truehawkfan. i wish i was in kansas right now!!!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1jhawk - Louises downtown. What's that guys name who's always drunk in there. A local regular who's been drunk in that place for like 20 years.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk - That song has been sent. Let me know if you get it.

Matt Lacey 11 years, 8 months ago

Cole Aldrich for player of the year! The "voted" one just got checked by him.Any tiger is a bad tiger.4 words: I forgive you Roy.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

NH_JHawk- that narrows the list down to about twenty, but I think you're thinking of Dave a.k.a. Super Dave. I had my 10 year high school reunion in the sorta new upstairs Louises and grew tired of it and put my nametag on him and sent him on up in my place. Good times. Still get a good laugh out of that. Super Dave still has a beard and still talks to himself when drunk.

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

AH! That's it. SUPERDAVE! LOL.....I'm going back to lawrence in September so I'll see if he's in there. Last time I was in larrytown he pissed himself. Poor guy.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

ah...superdave...i think...can't quite remeber...that's be beauty of lawrence ;)

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Let me know when in september. My wife and I will come up and hang with ya. I will buy the scotch!

NH_JHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

lance1/susya - going to larrytown for a week. Wed after labor day thru following monday. We're drinking on Mass St. for sure Wed and Thurs night.

MOJHawk 11 years, 8 months ago

IMAGE OF THE NIGHT - Coach Larry Brown in the stands yelling and signaling the defense to get back on defense. I think if Bill had turned and told him to come down to the bench, he would have been there in a flash.Truly a Jayhawk forever.

KU 11 years, 8 months ago

Toughness (recall Illiniois against Roy's KU squad); rebounding.Rock Chalk Jayhawk. KU.End of the Roy Williams Controversy. Period. It's now Bill Self's program without any qualifications. Thank God.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

nh_jhawk...we should be there...spend most of our 'free time' in lawrence...absolutely there for every tailgate/football game

KU 11 years, 8 months ago

Win or lose Monday night.......Cole Adlrich is going to be a special, SPECIAL player for KU in the years to come. Bank it. Was he huge tonight or what? I've said all year......I've never seen a kid go after a rebound out of his area as aggressively as Cole. He will be special.

KU 11 years, 8 months ago

Regarding Memphis: They're very, very talented. BUT....Rose and the boys have been listening to Cal too long and they've been patting themselves on the back enough to dislocate their own arms. "We're really hard to beat. We're just a special team." Blah, blah, blah.......CUSA vs Big 12. Enough said? Let's go boys. I'm sick of hearing how talented Memphis is. Let's show them what a talented, disciplined, great defensive team can do.

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

sooTinybawls- this is a quote from espn.com-Williams got outcoached in this one, especially at the beginning, finding no solution for Kansas' strategy of dumping the ball inside to Darrell Arthur, Darnell Jackson and Cole Aldrich.As you stated before you hated Roy and you NOW hate Head Coach Bill Self.... I guess your 1980's pager was full when the A.D. called for you to interview.Please respond, The Jayhawk Nation wants to know why you hate Coach.

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

< crickets > sooTinyBawls... ...hmm...balls came out early, but you're hiding them now...unfortunate, fair-weather-fan (fwf, i'd say it blatently, but you don't deserve it...fwf) we ARE #1...i BELIEVE it...i KNOW it..we are THE HAWKS!!!

Kyle Neuer 11 years, 8 months ago

I so loved dropping the ROCK CHALK chant on Williams. That just made everything OK for me. According to written press elsewhere, some fans at the game hit him with a "Sit down, Roy." at one or two points. Now that's love.

kshaw04 11 years, 8 months ago

I'm sleepless in Seattle. What a game! Watching ESPN and wondering when we will get some love. I couldn't be happier@!!!! Jay just said we will be a great match up with Memphis. I think he is the only person who has pulled for us!lance...love that poem. Looking forward to seeing it on Monday

susyajhawk 11 years, 8 months ago

Memphis is 'it'...no other team i'd rather play in the NC...UCLA didn't deserve it (they tried to get all their free shots), and UNC gave it their best...we DEMAND memphis' best, we'll get Memphis' best, and (if God has a free will,) we'll play Memhpis' best...and beat them...and then WE'LL be IT!!!

babyjayhawkfan 11 years, 8 months ago

wow!!!!! I just got home from the bars in Tulsa, OK and I wore my jersey proud..not to mention I flew the huge KU flag to anyone that looked my way. As I was leaving the bar, some guy said, " you guys got lucky." Um...not sure if he watched the same game I did, but UNC NEVER LEAD!!!!! Also, I see this guy who is literally about 7 feet...he kinda gave me this look of disgust because we had won...I can't remember his name because I might have drank a little tonight, but he played on Marquette when we beat them!!!!! Bring it Memphis!!! This is our year!!!!

lance1jhawk 11 years, 8 months ago
