KU scoring

Collins 11 (3-for-19 shooting), Marcus Morris 11, Taylor 11, Aldrich 8, Reed 7, Thomas 4, Releford 4, Markieff Morris 4, Morningstar 3, Little 2.

KU was 21-for-63 from the floor (33.3 percent), 19-for-28 from the free-throw line (67.9 percent) and 4-for-24 from three (16.7 percent).

TTU was 23-for-51 from the floor (45.1 percent), 15-for-27 from three (55.6 percent) and 23-for-26 from the free-throw line (88.5 percent).

TTU had 19 turnovers to KU’s 13. TTU out-rebounded KU, 39-38.

FINAL: TTU defeats KU, 84-65.

Matt Kleinmann gets in the game for all the wrong reasons.

Voskuil hits two more threes to end his senior night with 35 points, making 9 of his 14 threes.

Tech wins by 19, and the few students that are here rush the court.

TTU 78/KU 61 — 1:46 left in game

Voskuil hits a dagger, draining a stepback three at the end of the shot clock over Reed. Not much the KU guard could do there.

Little misses two free throws. Okorie followed with two free throws. This is turning into a blowout.

Collins misses a deep three he has to take. He’s now 3-for-19 overall and 1-for-10 from three.

The “Overrated” chant starts at the 1:58 mark. Turnabout is fair play, I guess.

TTU 69/KU 60 — 3:24 left in game

Four straight free throws by Tech, including the two technical freebies. The Red Raiders haven’t hurt themselves at the line (14-for-16, 87.5 percent).

It’s a free-throw contest now. The Jayhawks hit four, but Okorie hits two.

Singletary gets a layup, and KU can’t buy a basket. Collins misses two short ones. Aldrich misses a chippy. Marcus Morris gets fouled but misses the front end of the one-and-one. The fans are feeling the upset here.

Marcus Morris and TTU’s Robert Lewandowski foul out within a span of two seconds. That still probably hurts KU more.

Reed misses a wide-open three, and KU’s chances at a comeback are slipping away.

TTU 60/KU 54 — 7:43 left in game

KU is getting easy baskets in transition. It looks like one of Tech’s guards is forgetting to stay back. Taylor gets two easy layups, but KU isn’t making up much ground.

The Jayhawks are sticking with their 2-3 zone. It’s giving Voskuil open threes, but that’s a risk KU has to take.

Collins finds Reed in the corner on the secondary break, and the sophomore drains the three. TTU turns it over, and after a Collins miss, Marcus Morris follows with the offensive rebound and putback.

Collins jacks up another bad shot. He’s killing KU tonight. After a foul on Marcus Morris, the referee whistles him for a technical. Not sure what happened, but that’s a quick whistle regardless.

TTU 54/KU 43 — 11:53 left in game

On the ropes, the Red Raiders respond well. Singletary drives in for a layup, and Voskuil hits a three over KU’s 2-3 zone.

Why is Collins shooting so much? He’s 3-for-12 and hoisting up guarded 16-footers and fallaway threes. The Jayhawks have forgotten what it was that helped them make their run (going inside).

Self picks up an ill-advised technical foul after there was no whistle on a Markieff Morris shot inside. Suddenly, TTU’s lead is back up to 11, and the Red Raiders have all the momentum.

Could it get any worse for KU? Aldrich picks up an away-from-the-ball whistle, and that’s his fourth foul. He heads to the bench.

TTU 41/KU 39 — 15:38 left in game

KU gets the ball inside the paint twice in the first two minutes of the second half, and twice, Marcus Morris dunks it. Again, KU should be able to score points, but holding down TTU defensively will be the key.

The Jayhawks put on a full-court pressing defense, and Taylor gets a steal in the backcourt. He lays it in for two, and KU has trimmed the lead to five.

A three from Morningstar and layup from Aldrich, and suddenly, the Jayhawks are down two. Tech is self-destructing with bad shots and unforced turnovers. A Red Raiders fan in the upper deck yells, “Get your hands off your throats” to his own team.

KU scoring

Collins 7, Marcus Morris 5, Aldrich 4, Releford 4, Reed 4, Taylor 2, Little 2.

KU was 8-for-25 from the floor (32 percent), 2-for-9 from three (22.2 percent) and 10-for-14 from the free-throw line (71.4 percent).

TTU was 12-for-29 from the floor (41.4 percent), 8-for-15 from three (53.3 percent) and 7-for-8 from the free-throw line (87.5 percent).

KU had eight turnovers to TTU’s nine. TTU out-rebounded KU, 21-15.

Halftime thoughts

What happened to that maturing, developing team we saw against Missouri? Collins hasn’t shown leadership, and Aldrich was non-existent inside before picking up two fouls. Taylor had a poor half with just two points and two turnovers. We haven’t seen these Jayhawks since Michigan State two months ago.

Having said that, KU still has a great chance in this one. The Jayhawks missed a lot of first-half shots, and the Red Raiders are probably the worst defensive team in the Big 12. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Jayhawks still get to 80 points.

KU will have to win this one with defense. The Jayhawks were horrible getting out to shooters in the first half, and they’ll have to be much, much better. The 2-3 zone was effective toward the end of the half, though, so we’ll see if Self sticks with that.

Good minutes from Releford, even if he did throw a pass to a ref. He tied for the team-high with three rebounds and also made both of his field-goal attempts.

TTU 39/KU 28 — Halftime

KU’s change to a 2-3 zone has worked well so far. TTU hasn’t been nearly as comfortable in its offense and has missed badly with some forced-up shots.

The Jayhawks hold for the last shot, but an ice-cold Collins jacks up a three that misses badly. That play summarized the first half pretty well. Collins is now 2-for-8, and KU is still down 11.

TTU 39/KU 28 — 1:56 left in 1st half

KU keeps sending Texas Tech to the free-throw line. Okorie makes four straight. The Red Raiders’ lead is up to 17.

Collins isn’t acting much like a leader now. He’s trying to do too much himself and complaining too much to the officials. His lack of focus is showing at the line, where he’s just 2-for-4.

Tech is not playing the part of a smart team. KU is struggling from the floor, but the Red Raiders keep putting the Jayhawks at the free-throw line with silly over-the-back fouls.

Rogdrick Craig drains another open three. When is KU going to start defending the three-point line?

Travis Releford drives in for a layup, and Tyrel Reed swishes an open three. The Jayhawks follow with a steal, and after Collins is blocked, Releford uses an athletic move to get the ball off the glass and in for two. That’s a 7-0 run for KU, but the Jayhawks still trail by 11.

TTU 29/KU 17 — 7:57 left in 1st half

It might be worse for KU if it wasn’t getting to the free-throw line. Aldrich makes two free throws, and Collins makes one of two.

Mike Singletary drains an open three. A minute later, Roberson drives right down the middle of the lane for a layup. The March Jayhawks have been replaced by the October Jayhawks, at least for the first 12 minutes.

TTU 21/KU 12 — 11:56 left in 1st half

The Jayhawks must have decided in the locker room that they weren’t going to guard any three-point shots.

Roberson hits a three. Then Voskuil is left open for three consecutive three-pointers (Did I mention he’s third in the conference in three-point shooting?). Swish. Swish. Swish. TTU is 5-for-7 from three, but KU is offering little resistance.

Timeout Self. Saying KU did not come to play would be a gross understatement.

The good news is there’s still plenty of time for KU to turn things around. If we know anything about Texas Tech, it’s that the Red Raiders are going to give up points.

TTU 9/KU 5 — 15:49 left in 1st half

Interesting rule to open the game. There was a jump-ball off the opening tip, so the people that were involved in the tie-up had another tip-off. Brady Morningstar will probably never be involved in a tip again, but he can say he won the one he was in.

Not a good start for KU. Marcus Morris starts with an airballed jumper. The Jayhawks aren’t defending well, either, as Nick Okorie makes a pair of open shots.

Alan Voskuil hits a three, and Self takes his first timeout.

Tyshawn Taylor picks up KU’s first field goal on a drive 3:15 in, and Marcus Morris gets a tip-in on the next possession, but Voskuil hits another open shot. KU hasn’t played with enough energy defensively.

8:26 p.m.

I’m not good at guessing attendance numbers, but I would say that, right now, there are only about 3,000-4,000 fans here at United Spirit Arena.

In other words, I’ve seen bigger crowds for Emporia State-Washburn women’s basketball games at White Auditorium in Emporia.

8:17 p.m.

Some notes about Texas Tech:

• The Red Raiders have lost six straight games.

• Texas Tech, like Kansas, is averaging 77.8 points per game.

• The Red Raiders have given up a Big 12-worst 80.7 points per game in conference play.

• TTU’s John Roberson leads the Big 12 in assists (6.5 per game).

• Alan Voskuil is third in the Big 12 in three-point shooting (43.8 percent). KU’s Fred Brown is first (45.8 percent) and Kansas State’s Fred Brown is second (44.2 percent).

• Voskuil (35.6 minutes per game) and Roberson (35.4 mpg) are third and fourth, respectively, in Big 12 minutes.

7:42 p.m.

As I'm typing this, the Kansas women's basketball team is leading No. 6 Baylor, 36-17, at Allen Fieldhouse. KU's Danielle McCray has 23 points, and there's still three minutes left in the first half.

If you live around the Fieldhouse, there's probably still time to watch an upset in the making.

6:55 p.m.

Welcome back to The Newell Post Live, coming to you from United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas, where the No. 9 Kansas Jayhawks are getting set to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

We’re going to try something a little different to start off this blog. Instead of analysis, we’re going to start with a contest, with the winner picking up a “Kream Keegan” T-Shirt.

Below are 20 either-or questions. Copy the questions, then select your pick for each question in the comments section below. Only one entry per person, and any person with multiple entries will have all their entries disqualified.

In the event of a tie, the winner will be the one that is closest to the final score for tonight’s game.

All entries must be put in the comments section by 8:30 p.m. Entries after this time will be disqualified.

I’ll do my best to go through all the entries late tonight. The winner will be notified by e-mail.

I’ll go ahead and throw my predictions in the comments section as well. If I am the winner, well, I guess I’ll have to give myself the “Kream Keegan” T-Shirt.

Good luck.

nnelson 10 years, 10 months ago

Good work Fred Newell.

True or False: Kansas fans will root for Missouri if it means sole possession of the Big 12 crown for the Jayhawks.

Or would KU fans rather take their chances of beating Texas on Saturday?

cwag 10 years, 10 months ago

No HD and Div. III announcers - boom goes the dynamite!

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

sluggish start...this game makes me a little nervous

Joe Joseph 10 years, 10 months ago

Tech playing like a team with nothing to lose early on. They're going to keep chucking bombs. This game will be close if Kansas struggles to hit shots on the other end.

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

Looks like we are NOT ready to play. Someone tell the TEAM that the game has already started. It's time to play ... . and play defense too !!

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

Jesse, We posted virtually simultaneously...does mine count? I swear I posted before the tip. :-) Go easy on a new poster...

rtjayhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

4 out of 5 from 3 point land....are you serious?

TNJhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

No way Voskuil keeps hitting the threes. Once he misses, he's done.

BCRavenJHawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

Voskuil picks tonight to throw everything in. This keeps up Self may rupture a second roid.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

cool, thanks jesse...not that it's looking like it will matter much--the guys need to get it going...what's up with Voskuil coming out en fuego, looking like steve kerr?

cwag 10 years, 10 months ago

They'll cool off as they get tired - we need to make them work harder on defense, and get 'em in foul trouble.

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

F. I knew this was going to be a dangerous game. We HAVE to go inside more, either through Cole or by driving.

They won't keep shooting the lights out, so let's chip away at that lead!!

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

Moringstar ... Voskul is YOUR Man ... defend him !!

Throw it into Cole and he will be able to get fouls on their big men.

Defense, Defense, defense !!!

OKJAYHAWK5 10 years, 10 months ago

Holy lord they are on fire.... No way that will last!

NH_JHawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Cmon! I like that we're going inside now.. but we HAVE to play better D. Why is Cole going out to the halfcourt line to trap?? D the shots!

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

Where are all these fouls coming from?? If we keep playing like this , we deserve to lose.

jayhawker_97 10 years, 10 months ago

Cole, where art thou? 0 rebounds? you've got to be joking! looks like either we didn't guard them well or they just are better shooters than i thought.

kc_wildfire 10 years, 10 months ago

Laughable, just laughable.

Where is our so called leader tonight?

Ben Kane 10 years, 10 months ago

why in the world is cole still on the bench?

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

How many of our points are from the free throw line? 1 assist, 7 turnovers, rebounds are non existent, what is up...bad kool aide? Stomach flu is rampant? We have got to pick it up. Another offensive rebound lost. UGH! Finally some points!

NH_JHawk 10 years, 10 months ago

a little bump! maybe we're coming back to life?

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

Maybe Cole has what Appleton had ... the "flu like symptons" ... ?

rtjayhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

l think travis had good intentions with that pass, but it was damn pathetic

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

Travis had a lay-up ... all he had to do is finish it !

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

Who was Releford passing it to?! The refs stripes are not blue! What is up with Cole being on the bench for so long? Perhaps Self is trying to send a message?

Joe Joseph 10 years, 10 months ago

Well, looks like I'll be watching the 2008 national championship DVD tonight...

rtjayhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Ok, seriously...how deep is Tech? I know of at least two folks with 3 fouls now.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

I still gotta believe hcbs is going to get these guys to make a strong run to make this a game in the second half. I know we're still young (our success and maturation of late not withstanding), we're at lubbock, etc, but this is not a good team we're playing. This is an opportunity to see just how mature we really are leading up to the postseason...

PAHAWK1 10 years, 10 months ago

Collins need to believe in his teammates.

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

49 - 34 Mizzou over OU at Half-time ... up 15 by the Tigers !!

Eric Hammond 10 years, 10 months ago

Superman is throwing up nothing but bricks all game. Sherron better show up in the second half. Hopefully he will find his side kick, Cole.

jaybate 10 years, 10 months ago

T Rel looking good until he passes to the invisible man!

drgnslyr, you have to be chanting "I told you so" about right now.

Still, it is a good sign they have ground down the lead to 11.

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

Where is the love for HCBS for COY. We may be behind, but what he has done this year is amazing.

BCRavenJHawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

It's bad karma in the Evil Spirit Center in the hell hole known as Lubbock.

jaybate 10 years, 10 months ago

T Rel looking good until he passes to the invisible man!

drgnslyr, you have to be chanting "I told you so" about right now.

Still, it is a good sign they have narrowed the lead to 11.

But all those misses in the last 2 minutes could haunt them in the second.

Note basket looks as small tonight to KU as it did to MU the last game.

fansincewilt 10 years, 10 months ago

If we had this game in us, it's good to get it out of the way. Heads might be a little swollen after the hype of last week.

TNJhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Still going to win. We've played worse halves than this.

Tony Bandle 10 years, 10 months ago

OK we got that out of our system. Two of their guards with 3 fouls and the best shooter in the Big 12 playing the point against the zone. When it comes to BBall, Pat Knight takes after his mom. Of course, the pathetic effort by KU lead by Sherron "watch how many ways I can miss a basket" Collins will turn into a second half wonder lead by Sherron " I am almost a lottery pick" Collins.......I hope.

GEEZ.....I can't believe I'm cheering for Missouri. Someone take away my Hawk Card!!!

Jared Grillot 10 years, 10 months ago

Deep breath and relax, folks. As you can see, TT doesn't do well against the zone. Coach has no problem using the zone, so I'm not worried. Cole will be back, coach obviously felt after 2 fouls, no baskets, no rebounds, that he needed a little taste of pine to get his mind back on the game and keep him from picking up any more dumb (and questionable) fouls before halftime.

Coach should be giving them an earful right now, getting them refocused. All will be well.

Eric Hammond 10 years, 10 months ago

I don't think we have shot any worse at all this year. I hope with switch of baskets comes a little nylon singing.

Jared Grillot 10 years, 10 months ago

Not to mention that I think it is against the laws of physics for Sherron to be cold ALL night. He's played a little suck in the 1st half before. Again, I'm not worried.

George Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

Why bother having the game on ESPN2 HD, if they do not broadcast in HD? Hell the Oak/MO game comes in better on PPV.

The pass by Releford was as just as much Collins problem too., He was the wing man, and he was not there, just lopin down the court.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

Morris with a hard flush! Good looking start to the second 20...

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

we CAN do this.... surely we will shoot better this half....... good start!!

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

down to 5 points!! ROCK CHALK all the way!!

mattralph 10 years, 10 months ago

That offensive foul on Morris was cheap. Should have been a no call.

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

Now that was hustle and a productive offensive stand!

BCRavenJHawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

Good start. Marcus Morris a dunking machine?

The guys could have had trouble getting their bearings, barametric pressure down hear is really weird, very dry and windy.

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

a 2 point game....... think OUR TEAM IS BACK!!!!!! let's blow them away for the title!!

rtjayhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Wasn't that Prince kid the one that Bobby Knight slapped on the chin cuz he wasn't looking at him or something a few years ago?

Eric Hammond 10 years, 10 months ago

Cole looks confused on his shots. He looks as if he doesn't believe he should be taking them. Get some confidence son!

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

tigers still up by 10 with 3 1/2 to play!!

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

cole needs to get his act together tonite..... NOT pretty!

PAHAWK1 10 years, 10 months ago

Cole is not playing smart. That was his third foul.

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

think we need another halftime peptalk!!

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

WHY ARE WE TAKING WEAK JUMPERS AND TURN-AROUND SHOTS??? CMon, take it INSIDE. It's not rocket science.

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

i WAS feeling real good about this, now i'm not......

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

Defense,Defense, Defense, Defense, Defense, Defense, Defense, Defense, Defense,

Stop them, Stop them, Stop them, Stop them, Stop them, Stop them, Stop them !!

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

and what happened to the zone? that was actually working. I know you cant' stay in it all game,but we need to get back to it.

but back to offense --- TAKE it INSIDE.

Eric Hammond 10 years, 10 months ago

Get Thomas in there, maybe he can hit a freaking layup. The twins can't hit crap.

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

WOW!! things are falling apart and the refs are helping!! where's the call????

ku98 10 years, 10 months ago

Can we go back to a zone defense, please? Hey we've got a couple of hometown referees there...

BCRavenJHawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

Geez, who got that prediction right on a technical foul?

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

Its time for the the Morris twins to step up and have the game we've been expecting! Aldrich is definitley having an off night and collins seems to have forgotten that he has teammates. Anyone know how many assists we have? It can't be many.

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

Refs nationwide seem to have something against the Morris twins.
That 'bump' on that one ref a few games back probably didn't help...

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

mu-ou is final...we need to pull it together and win the big xii outright tonight...

rtjayhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

BCRaven - MrPilot was the only one that I noticed that said yes to the technical foul question

BCRavenJHawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

The end of the world as we know it must be close, Mizzou defeats OU.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

...little came in and tried to bank in a trey

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

we have to find a run in us and obviously WITHOUT cole..........

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

God bless Reed. And an assist for collins!

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

anyone else get the impression that the announcers are pulling for an upset?

kesmithstl1 10 years, 10 months ago

Cole is having a great game!! At least the competition is just as good as he is

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

the morris boys are getting screwed......... what is the deal?????

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

Time to thank manning for keeping us from getting a T again. Morris needs to refocus and tear TTU apart.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

that was hilarious...danny herding the guys off the court after the deadball to avoid morris saying something stupid to the ref

kesmithstl1 10 years, 10 months ago

Hostile environment! Must keep cool! DOH

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

a glimmer of hope and then a slam in the face!!

ku98 10 years, 10 months ago

I think the announcers AND the refs are pulling for an upset.

Jared Grillot 10 years, 10 months ago

Good grief... obviously they've got nothing against the zone... now we need to quit screwing around and make some baskets so this thing can be over.

I think this is the most irritated I've ever felt as a conference champion.

Eric Hammond 10 years, 10 months ago

Sherron decided he wanted to celebrate in the visitor's locker room. He forgot one thing, to play basketball first.

KGphoto 10 years, 10 months ago

Pretty obvious the refs won't let it happen. Upsets = $$.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

dang, nm...he had already said something stupid and got the tech

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

another ridiculous "T"......... what is the deal with morris and refs???? he doesn't stand a chance....... JUST WHEN the run was starting.........

this is really irritating me a lot!!

lance1jhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

If we can find a way to win this game with Cole sitting on the bench it will speak volumes about how far this team has come.

Side note... It doesn't matter what anybody else did tonight by winning or losing. All that matters is that we earn it. Don't get me wrong its nice and all.... We just need to earn it.

KJRFC 10 years, 10 months ago

Why do we suck so bad when we go play in that craphole? TT is not a good team, obviously not, if you can't win more than 2 games in the top-heavy Big XII. All they have is the three. Self won't stick with the zone-D and we're doing nothing on the glass. What's it gonna take?

KUballer 10 years, 10 months ago

Is there any way the Morris twins could get 11 fouls?

cwag 10 years, 10 months ago

Cole rolled his ankle - hope he's o.k. for tourney time.

Eric Hammond 10 years, 10 months ago

Bill didn't have the kids ready to play tonight. Bill got out coached, and his players got out hustled.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

what the heck happened to cole??? he's hurt?

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

I know the refs hate the name Morris, but I was never on their bandwagon - and probably never will be.

Their ratio of bonehead plays to decent plays = 5:1

KGphoto 10 years, 10 months ago

Horse apples. The whole game smells like zebra. Typical NCAA underdog garbage.

Whatever. If it doesn't kill you...

ku98 10 years, 10 months ago

Man, we are as cold as flippin' ice tonight. Screw it, let's pack it up and leave that crap-hole. I am so flippin' mad... I hate the refs, I hate how we play, I hate everything about tonight.

Lance Hobson 10 years, 10 months ago

Reed is king of the in and out shot when we really need it. Not too impressed with the twins this season. They just have bad attitudes.

fansincewilt 10 years, 10 months ago

Fortunately, this is not the first game of the tournament. The first team we play will probably be better than TT.

OKJAYHAWK5 10 years, 10 months ago

That place is a dungeon!! Maybe 5 grand there and we act like its 20!!!! What is the problem????

erichamm1211: You're fired.

Self did not get outcoached by the panzy spawn of a whiney bastard.

Steve Gantz 10 years, 10 months ago

"Tonite is the type of game that can trip up a young team like ours. They've just come off their two biggest wins of the year, on the road against an inferior opponent who also has a lot of payback on their mind."

My comments earlier today about this game. Not bragging, just saw this coming.

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

i hate to say it but....i'm afraid it's over. we don't deserve to win tonight.

lance1jhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Cole has been wearing a protective boot on that leg all season when walking around campus. He will be fine. Everyone needs to settle down.

Wow, that Doogie Houser kid for Texas Tech can flat out shoot.

KUballer 10 years, 10 months ago

Why does Voswhatever only decide to show up when he's playing us?

kshaw04 10 years, 10 months ago

This is pathetic. I can't believe I'm witnessing this...It isn't cold as ice. We just melted.

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

I wouldn't say Bill was outcoached. I think the stars aligned: We just get off a week of playing hard against OU and MU, and TT is just off a stretch of losses...and it's senior night for Voskuil. Nothing to lose, they shoot at will and they're falling.

But those 4 points from those two technicals ..... that's hard to stomach. Getting the team fired up or not, that's 4 points.

I take back my previous comment -- we should've stayed in the zone the WHOLE game. Forget switching it up ... if the zone was working, cling to it.

TT, 13 of 25 from 3, and 20 of 23 from FT. Gimme a flippin' break. That's their best game of the year by far.

what a friggin' ugly game. stupid refs. damned Voiskul. completely out of composure. what a good decision not to watch the game this time. better luck next time, Hawks..

PAHAWK1 10 years, 10 months ago

BP2U, I do not know which game you are watching. Marcus has played a great game (11 and 8). Refs did not let him play. Collins is 3 of 18, Cole has 3 rebs. Find some one else to blame.

RonBurgandy 10 years, 10 months ago

One of the few times I agree with the overrated chant. This is a great season, but we are not the 9th best team in the country. I think our guys got cocky when they really shouldn't have. They still need to prove their place, they can be good, but maybe this will show them they are not unbeatable.

Not the way I wanted to get the Big 12 title. Disappointing.

KUballer 10 years, 10 months ago

KJRFC 10 years, 10 months ago

The wins vs. OK and the Tiggers went to our heads. We came in lazy, unfocused, and expecting to sleep-walk our way to a W tonight. Self still deserves COtY, but this is flat out embarrasing. I hate everything about Texas.

ku98 10 years, 10 months ago

Hahahahahah, they don't even have enough people in the arena to take up half the court.

OKJAYHAWK5 10 years, 10 months ago

Sad performance. I don't care what is on the line. That was not the KU team we love. WEAK

ytf23 10 years, 10 months ago

Somebody tell Keegan that nobody deserves any of his frakkin' points on the year after this game. The whole team sucked it up tonight. Self would be justified in taking names off their backs after the team crapped the bed like that tonight. That being said, I think we will be sufficiently pumped for UT later this week. OSU can have the bye game at the Big 12 tourney if they beat OU.

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

Self didn't have them ready ... it is Bill Selfs fault. He ought to be embarrassed !!

... And he was starting to Love these boys ... thats funny !

exiledhawkfan 10 years, 10 months ago

everyone's "20 questions" kinda got blown all to hades, huh jesse?

truefan 10 years, 10 months ago

The thing that really sucks is that we always have to play Tech on their senior night. We got a little revenge last year, but once again we had them at their place on senior night once again and once again they shot the lights out. Nothing you can do when the stars align like that. I love Self, but he really chose a poor time to pick up that technical foul in the second half, we were back in it, and he took us right back out of it. His idea was right, but his timing was terrible. We'll have to see what our team can do this Saturday. I'll be there.

ku98 10 years, 10 months ago

Voskuil averaged 13.8ppg before tonight, and he canned 9 3s.... Singletary only hit 3 3s all year, and he goes 3 for 3 tonight.... We played like crap, but TT played out of their minds. I'd give Marcus some props, he played better than anyone else on our team.

jayhawker_97 10 years, 10 months ago

calm down, loyal KU fans! a trusted insider told me that KU deliberately let TT to win. we already won Big12 regular, anyway. so, what the hell giving 1 more win for Knight. oh, and sharing is always a good thing, too.

there!! i feel better now...

go Jayhawks!!!

Jared Grillot 10 years, 10 months ago

PAHAWK -

I have to agree. I'm not gonna blame the game on the refs, but they seriously hounded the Morris twins. They called anything, everything, nothing on them, not when the fouls were on them, not when they were getting fouled.

I'll blame the game on not sticking with the zone, ice cold shooting, no assisting, no rebounding, and completely unconscious shooting from that NIGHTMARE. What did he miss from three point range, one? Two? Maybe?

Champs. Yay. Freakin' sucks. I hope Coach eats them alive in practice tomorrow.

SCHNBALL 10 years, 10 months ago

Lokking ahead to the big dance, this team reminds me of Langford and Co. 1. No leadership when we truly need to get in a half court offense, not driving to the goal like a bull in a china cabinet. 2. Where will we get points in the tourney beside Aldrich and Collins. I see Taylor as a non factor and am hoping that either Reed and Mornginstar can truly step up in a tough came such as tonight. 3. I still go back to leadership, Coach Self can't play, who will take control of the team on the court, no one did tonight. 4. How easily were we sped up tonight. 5. Last I check Aldrich had 5 shot attempts?

indyhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

what BS!!! I hate it when teams win by throwing up 3 balls and making the most ridiculous shots! Plus what was up with the fouls -- ALL NIGHT!! We better win so we don't have to share the title with that crappy team in misery.

Why did Self stop playing a zone??? This teams wasn't ready and overlooked Tech BIG TIME! We better be on the ball Saturday because Texas can be tough.

What a frustrating night!

Tony Bandle 10 years, 10 months ago

Bill is 0 for at Texas Tech.

No real surprise considering the youth, after two major wins going up against a down team with nothing to lose on their own court on senior night with two hot three point shooters plus our two stars are totally ineffective [as Sherronatron and Condor go so go the JHawks}= a formula for defeat.

I would say this was a team effort from the coaching staff on down. Clinching the tie means absolutely nothing, but SILVER LINING TIME - this rotten effort will be total motivation for the Hawks to win it outright in Allen on our Senior Day against Texas...provided Cole and Tyshawn can walk.

Hold this mental picture, however, because if we lose an NCAA game it's going to look something like this one tonight. Tell you what...let's win the next ten in a row like last year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cffighter86 10 years, 10 months ago

Red Red...how the hell is this Bill Self's fault? Is he the one that shot 33% from the field and 17% from beyond the arc? If he was the one that shot that horrible, sure it would be his fault...the blame is solely on the players tonight

FunEfellow 10 years, 10 months ago

KU Baller, the reason a 2-14 team is chanting "overrated" is because that 2-14 team just beat us, who are supposedly the 9th best in the nation.

JayhawkLova7 10 years, 10 months ago

We sucked. Oh and as for Self, he did not in any way get 'outcoached' by Pat Knight. I mean seriously there is only so much a coach can do and then your kids have to deliver in the end. I don't think we should have went to man though. I don't blame games on refs and I am not in any blaming this game on the refs but what were they watching? I mean seriously? The refs sucked as bad as we did. Horrible! We looked terrible. We played the worst we could possibly play, which combined with that one kids draining of the three we went down. I have to say I didn't expect this.

I am throughly disappointed in the Jayhawks. Hopefully they get their act together by Saturday. I wouldn't want to be in practice this week. As for the T on Marcus, are they crazy? I've seen kids jaw at the refs all the time and he didn't even talk to any of the refs. Insane. The refs tried to impact the game. I swear there were tons of calls away from the ball that were insane. Like I said we lost the game because we didn't play to our ability. Hopefully we wake up and play like we want to win.

jhawker_87 10 years, 10 months ago

Anybody questioning Bill Self's coaching in this game needs to reevaluate what team they root for. We cannot hit anything, cant get a call, and the stars align for Tech (Voskuil twenty over his average) and the bandwagon fans show their ugly faces. Don't be so quick to forget the original expectations for this group; let this loss go and don't embarrass yourself by making comments out of frustration.

Jared Grillot 10 years, 10 months ago

SCHNBALL 10 years, 10 months ago

oakville, can't agree more, if we lose an NCAA game, it will look just like this game.

jayhawkinATL 10 years, 10 months ago

Hopefully, the real Collins shows up against UT...3 for freakin' 19!!!

Man, we only make 4 (out of 24) three-pointers and they make 15 (of 27)!!!

Brian Powell 10 years, 10 months ago

Well, I must be getting the twins mixed up again.. but it's always one of them making bonehead passes/turnovers or fouls. Yeah one of them might post two decent stats, but it seems like the fouls and turnovers (and technicals - that was a 4 point play) are always the most untimely for us ....and the fact that they're usually obvious mistakes -- maybe a few months ago, but they should know better by now.

I still think they have a lot of potential, but they need to cut out the aforementioned stuff first.

Yeah, we beat OU sans POY and MU at home. So #9 was nice while it lasted, but we should probably be somewhere around 13-15. If we win the Big12 tourney, I could see top-10 again.

I almost feel sorry for U.Texas, come Saturday. Almost. (I hate that state)

Steve Hilker 10 years, 10 months ago

Can't remember the last time I saw such a sorry display of KU basketball. Against a bad team. Pathetic, It will be a short short dance like that.

Hays_Hawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Big picture here guys...don't get me wrong. I LOVE our Hawks and HATE to see a game like this happen...the refs...the out of the a#% 3's...the technicals. It wasn't KU ball but the bottom line is THIS GAME MEANT NOTHING! And at the risk of sounding a little cliche...if there is such a thing as a "good loss", this was definitely it. OU also went down tonight so it meant nothing as far as the Big 12 goes. T-Tech will be watching the NCAA Tourny from their dorm rooms...and a thump on the head will only wake our guys up just in time to wrap up the regular season and get primed for the Big 12 Tourny then NCAA Tourny. Let's move on and...

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!!!

ku98 10 years, 10 months ago

Good call, Hays... Maybe it was a remake of last year's game at OSU, and now we can go on a nice winning streak.

Robert Murphy 10 years, 10 months ago

Well another bubble has burst. First it was housing then the stock market and now the Jayhawks. I guess you can't be up every night and once in a while the other team can get it to go in the basket. The big 12 is a mediocre conference this year and the baby hawks fit right into it. Actually, Oklahoma didn't look so hot tonight either. Don't be surprised if Texas comes in this week and ends the streak at 39. Anyway, the team played pretty well considering that Morningstar and Reed are barely division I capable, Sharron can be a squirrel, Aldrich is only a sophomore, and the Morris twins look absolutely retarded most of the time. Will we get a #1 seed or maybe a #2. Talk about delusional. Oh well, Omar Kiam said it best "Life is but a dream".

RedRed 10 years, 10 months ago

cffighter86 says...

Red Red...how the hell is this Bill Self's fault?

CF ... It is simply that Self did NOT have the Players ready to play. He's the coach and he should have them focused at what is at hand !! That's how I saw it !! At the start of the game TT ran away from us as we weren't ready to play.

lovemyhawks 10 years, 10 months ago

that was really really pathetic....... we stunk big time..... cold as ice and only looked good that short time to start the 2nd half. pretty sad......... we definitely were NOT prepared and hopefully it will be a good wake-up call. hope cole and tyshawn are okay.... that's just what we need. a young cocky team showed up in texas tonite and reminded us all what we truly have........ this past week was so much fun and this was SUCH a major letdown.... wow.......... i'm disappointed in ALL of them........ just was not a HAWK nite at all....... let's just hope it's out of their system now.......... refs did not help us either and the T's were horrible........ i don't think anything went our way......

Jared Grillot 10 years, 10 months ago

jhawker_87 - Ok... ok... you're right. Deep breath.

Sucks outright, but now its done. We looked a lot like some games we had earlier this year, but ...

We are Big XII Champs again. All that talk about getting Matt Kleinmann that 5th ring, its done. HOWEVER, at this point in time, we have the (gulp) tiggers to thank for that. We can't leave things like that. We have to wake up and put it to the Horns on OUR senior night, so we can have that trophy, that ring, and that #1 seed in the Big XII Tournament because we won, not the tiggers.

areyouserious 10 years, 10 months ago

terrible letdown game as predicted..............gimme the T-shirt Jesse!!!!!!!

15 out of 20

thesquad 10 years, 10 months ago

Ok, we sucked tonight but there is NO WAY IN HELL its Bill Self's fault.

He's the best damn coach in college basketball and by the way this team has played this year we all know that.

As cliche as it sounds, it wasn't our night. We couldn't buy a basket--all our threes were going in and out.. and they drained 15/27 threes and hit 90% on their free throws.

Sherron and Cole and no one else did anything.. it happens i guess.

But Bill Self can't control it when a guy goes 9/14 threes (doesn't matter man or zone, the dude was shooting from Waco) and our shots don't fall.

Throw this one out.

Oh, and Rock Chalk

Hawkish4bigM 10 years, 10 months ago

Our guys looked tired. When you mishandle the ball like we did, couldn't seem to find the handle on loose balls, couldn't buy a basket, it is time for a break. I think the emotional down after Mizzery and need for rest showed. As bad as we played we should have lost by 50. This loss came at a good time. Hope we can learn a lot from it. Get your rest, guys.

Hays_Hawk 10 years, 10 months ago

bobbysfissure, you need to take that crap somewhere else. There's no way you can call yourself a KU fan. Band wagon central in here tonight...

kumax77 10 years, 10 months ago

Tough game for the 'hawks tonite. Collins was in rare form (of the ugly variety). And to be fair- not much else coming from his teammates. We were definitely not the #9 team in the country tonite. I still believe these 'hawks will regroup and show us what they're made of this Saturday. It all starts at the point- and I think Collins will play within himself against UT.

Don't lose heart jhawk fans. This is a YOUNG team and is still learning what it means to be consistent and STAY consistent over the course of a season. I am also sure that HCBS will have them ready this Saturday and beyond. It will be hard to forget this lesson.

KUHawks03 10 years, 10 months ago

I agree with you Hays_Hawk, there is no need for that. We are a young team and we are bound to have a bad game now and then. Yes we played bad D and let Tech get open way too much, but how do you stop someone from pulling up and shooting a 25fter? We just ran into a buzzsaw and it made us look bad as a team, but we are Kansas. We have a share of the Big 12 title at least, and we will recover for sat and be ready for the Horns.

I still feel sick. Voskuil was absolutely unreal, 35 points, I can't believe it. KU could not keep it together. A lot of ticky tack fouls called in the second half.

FunEfellow 10 years, 10 months ago

I don't blame this game on Bill at all. It is disappointing though, because I doubt he'll get COY after it... I am curious though why he didn't play zone more when it worked well each time we used it. It was the only time we seemed to be able to stop the 3 from Voskuil.

I hope both Cole and Tyshawn are okay.

I kinda felt that we had at least one more loss in our team. Let's hope it's out of our system.

thesquad 10 years, 10 months ago

f-ck yeah, jhawker_87.

this game is forgotten.

rawkhawk 10 years, 10 months ago

Darnmit. Pretty bad game for KU all round. T Tech played loose; Voskuil played great. At times the game looked more in control for KU. I could second guess Self going back to man-to-man, but I think it was a worthwhile attempt to control the pace of the game. KU was very cold and seemed unprepared. I hope it's the wake-up call before the final stretch of the season. I felt this game could be tough coming into it, but it seems like KU could have played them at least a little closer. I hope Texas pays the price Sat...

Tan Hong Woon 10 years, 10 months ago

The only more stable 3 shooter is Collin. He has his off day and that has allowed TTU to crowd the low post. Poor Free throw also makes the game difficult. We could have took the lead mid way through the second half if we shoot better at the line.

Tony Bandle 10 years, 10 months ago

What really sucks is this is a horrible loss.It is the absolute worst time in the "what have you done for me lately" of the NCAA Selection Process. First, kiss a #1 seed goodbye [although that was a long shot], Second, if we stumble in the Big 12 tournament that would be 7 losses and a #2 seed will even be more doubtful than it is already. Third and the real killer, that sticks us with a #3 and good bye Kansas City for KU.

Still, look where we thought we'd be back in August and look where we are today. Still a great surprise and a damn fine season!!!!

I will always be proud to be a Jayhawk.

Quick story..my brother-in-law has two daughters. He is a Mizzou graduate but guess what his youngest daughter's first word was....JAYHAWK!!! He hates me. TEEHEEHEE

jaybate 10 years, 10 months ago

From Mt. Everest to the Mariannas Trench in three days.

It was the worst of times against the worst of teams.

KU did everything it needed to win short of making baskets and defending Alan Voskuil and Mike Singletary from the trey stripe. Oops. Details, details.

Think about it: five fewer TOs; outrebounded them; got a lot of strips; 68% from the FT line; that's not too bad for coming on the floor with the look of trying not to lose, wishing they did not have to play a team that set a lots of annoying picks, and seeing the rim as being about as small as a vacuole of a paramecium.

Fatigue may make cowards of us all, but 16.7% free throw shooting on 24 attempts turns 9th ranked teams into full blown drawer soilers.

Sherron: 3 of 19 and 1 of 10 from three with three TOs; as awful as he was stellar vs. MU. I guess he got the tick out of his ear. I guess he filled his ear with bondo so as not to be bothered. Sherron, we like you better with the tick in your ear!

Cole: The Condor turned into the canary. Forgot about not fouling. Its a heck of a way to rest up for Texas.

Tyshawn: surprisingly a decent line score and not a bad game. He was not stellar, but for a down game this was not as far down as usual. Unfortunately, he appeared to wreck his ankle and is almost certain to be at less than full speed vs. Texas in three days.

Brady: Mr. Reliable was so absent mentally that Coach Self gave up on him physically, too. Brady was in Siberia the second half, not on the floor. He was thinking about how cold he had been the first half, while freezing to death over on the bench. Too bad, too, because though Brady was not doing a good job, Reed and Taylor took turns showing just how much better of a job Brady was doing on defense than they could. The second half Reed and Taylor made Voskuil look like Stephen Curry on a hot night.

jaybate 10 years, 10 months ago

Marcus Morris: he did a lot of good things under the radar screen, but he earned a momentum stunting technical for holding onto the ball too long and fouled out. It was that kind of a night.

Going to the bench...

Tyrell Reed: he was our hot hand tonight with 2-7 shooting.

Kieff Morris: presented with 17 minutes, he chose to play uninspired, take some untimely treys, turn the ball of three times. The high point of his game was that he only got four fouls.

Mario Little: Little seemed to do a little better, though it was hard to tell given the stench he was having to wade through.

Travis Releford did some good things until he started making labored passes to persons who weren't there.

It was in short the kind of game where Conner Teahan could be inserted in desperation, order to pop the triceratop, and fail to get open for one look.

This game has to go into the Hall of Shame.

I should have seen it coming.

Massive let down after a great sense of achievement against MU.

Self gushed too much after the MU win.

Bad shooting night after a string of good shooting nights and one fiery hot one.

Youth always has to learn the hard way that its never over till the last game.

Ritallin, or sedatives, tempt me tonight.

Rock Chalk after an exploding cigar.

rockchalkjayhawk4ku11 10 years, 10 months ago

truefan- "we got a little revenge last year" Last time we played them we destroyed them. We won by 59, right? Can someone tell me why self took them out of zone?

railer1122 10 years, 10 months ago

Perfect example of a trap game. After a big win, and a big game coming up, you overlook the opponent ahead of you and you struggle. Self needs to tell Collins to shut his mouth about celebrating in another team's locker room

mahkmood 10 years, 10 months ago

1) Officials give us 2 technical fouls, and cater to TT -> 4 points - at least 2) KU Season avg 3% .390, tonight .167 -> 15 points 3) TT Season avg 3% .371, tonight .556 -> 15 points 4) TT Season avg FF% .721, tonight .885 -> 5 points

That's a 39 point swing, but KU lost by just 19... if KU makes only 25% 3's and TT 45% 3's, that would be about a 15 point swing, KU losing by only 4. Then, say we have an officiating crew that doesn't suck. KU wins.

Bottom line, TT was lucky as hell, so KU fans shouldn't get too down about this one. And please don't bitch about Coach Self!

dudelaw 10 years, 10 months ago

ouled the crap out of us and then sent in the bombers. then bill self solved it with the zone, sent in rutherford and we were back in the game. why did he bench rutherford and quit the zone. stupid. he was out of his mind. he'll learn from that.

the refs. they destroyepeople. this was a good loss. look, you can't beat a team where one kid scores nine treys and the other scores five. i mean, that's enough to screw with any team's head. i mean this team had nothing to loose - so bombs away. and they had this huge chip on their shoulder, their whole town hated them. their coach had to defend them in the press. i mean they were pissed.

this was a good loss. we had it coming after two huge wins. this is college basketball people. this stuff happens to everybody sooner or later. look at what mizzou did to ou after we friggin destroyed them.

the coaches. bill self was out-coached tonight. guranteed pat knight told his team to go out there and stick to us with elbows and the whole deal. they d them tempo of the game. they had a serious hard-on for anything that moved. it frustrated everybody - the players, the coach, us. they stripped all the grace possible for us.

and collins and cole. hey, these guys are hero's for what they have accomplished this year. they were due for a down game. and they had it.

the bottom line is that was a "stars alligned" things. tech had something to prove and played for raw adrenline driven pride; and we were due for a loss. with ou loosing themselves. this came at a great time.

throw in the improbable threes, the peckerwood reffing, no rythym and some poor team shooting (also statistically due for us), and you get this meaningless loss guranteed.

this team has heart and they aren't going to loose it because of a statistically due event.

speaking of "texas", man, i almost feel sorry for them on saturday. they are definitely going to get beat by and a very talented, embarrased ku team that will be way "up" for them.

this loss was meaningless.

good to see marcus have a good game!

this WAS a good loss.

should of stuck to that zone

When the announcers were talking about "you play 5 games better than what you're supposed to, 5 games worse and the other 20 is who your team is," the one guy credited the other with coining that phrase but he brushed it off as a common coaches' theory.

It may be but the first time I heard it was Coach Self. Anyone know it's origin?

I believe I will put tonight's game into the "5 games worse" folder in the circular file.

Oh and what about the consecutive jump balls to start a game? Has that ever happened before?

Ever?

OK, it has been a few hours and I have had time to calm down. Things I saw tonight:

1) When Sherron is off, we are a mediocure team. Sherron went 3 of 19 and his shot never looked more off. Maybe he should have been more worried about practice than talking about celebrating in the visitor's locker room. 2) Cole didn't show up to play at all. He looked as though he really didn't want to be there. His shots looked tight and very awkward.
3) Morris twins can't hit a layout if there life depended on it. Bill needs to pull a pat night and bring a 4 year old girl out of the stands to show the twins that this 2 foot little girl can make a layout, why can't you? 4) Brady had a bad night. I have been a Brady basher all year, but have been eating my own words. Brady is a glue guy and this just was not his night. 5) Not quite sure why Bill decided to go back to man to man instead of staying in the zone all the second half. I believe I would have taken my chances with playing zone just to allow Cole to play more while in foul trouble.

I am not to worried about this game, it is a game that was ugly from the start and got worse throughout the evening. Let it go, move on to Saturday vs. Texas and lets earn that out right Championship.

This game was an important loss. This is exactly how those "tough minded" mid majors play. Spread the court, pass, drain the defense's energy. Which translates to poor rhythm offensively after the other team scores. You're always playing catchup. Not a runaway catchup -- just always 7 points behind at not able to get the sustained run you need.

We need to force the point guard one way or the other, make him dive into the lane with the ball and then seal the passing lanes. Let him take an off balance shot. Some he'll make, some he won't. But at least we're not "chasing" the spread.

What a waste of energy

Otherwise stick with the zone.

No more playing into a lessor opponents hands.

The kids needed this lesson. The coaches needed this lesson. We needed this lesson.

Looked to me like Appleton gave Cole the flu - he just wasn't pursuing boards like usual and was slow down the court.

The Twins sometimes look great, but how many years of organized hoops does one need to play before they learn you can't shove someone in the face with your hands right in front of a ref? TOTAL backwards progress from them re: body language/attitude - they had 8 sequences in a row in 2nd half where they either fouled or turned it over. That technical was unbelievably stupid! Maybe equip them w/ shock collars and zap them when they are boneheads.

that was putrid - flush and forget

I have not posted since last year, but I figured tonight was a good night to come back. Jaybate, I generally love your posts and you were right tonight, but what did we all expect? These FRESHMAN, a couple of sophomores and a junior have been playing at a level that is unsustainable. Does anyone remember the Oklahoma State game last year? Are we this spoiled? We won it all last year and have two guys back, have a better conference record and we still think we should go undefeated in conference. I for one at the beginning of the year was hoping that we would only lose 10 games and anyone that says that they thought our record would be this good is flat out lying. Everyone take a deep breath, TTech shot out their a** and we couldn't hit anything. If we don't win another game I am happy with the development of this team and I think we all should be ( but that's just me). (Again Jaybate, keep up the good work, just think our bad night tonight was bound to happen).

Well, I Think If Appleton would have Made The Trip, He Could Have Guarded Voskuil Better than anybody on the Jayhawks...Ive been Watching This Kid Appleton Since He was in Prep and Juco, The Kid Is Amazing and Should be seeing More Playing Time here at KU..The Kid already has Three rings if im not mistaken. so he must know The Game...When Sherron is out on the court Huffing And Puffing Like he's about to fall on his face...Self????????
