Following the game, Aldrich was honored as Academic All-American of the Year, and after a celebratory video, KU’s players were presented with the Big 12 championship trophy. Collins, holding it up with both hands, took it to the locker room.

KU scoring — Xavier Henry 23 (9-for-13 shooting), Collins 17 (5-for-12 shooting), Taylor 11, Marcus Morris 10, Aldrich 7, Markieff Morris 5, Robinson 4, Morningstar 2, Reed 2.

KU was 30-for-58 from the floor (51.7 percent), 5-for-10 from three (50 percent) and 16-for-23 from the free-throw line (69.6 percent).

OU was 26-for-63 from the floor (41.3 percent), 6-for-20 from three (30 percent) and 10-for-14 from the free-throw line (71.4 percent).

KU out-rebounded OU, 39-33. OU had nine turnovers, while KU had six.

KU defeats OU, 81-68

OU can’t miss late in this game. Mason-Griffin puts in a two with a foul. Crocker gets a jumper with a foul. Mason-Griffin follows with a three.

Luckily for KU, Xavier Henry breaks up OU’s points with a three-point play of his own. Otherwise, this one would have gotten closer than the Jayhawks might have wanted.

KU ends the game with three consecutive offensive rebounds, running out the clock for a 13-point victory.

KU 74/OU 62 — 3:37 left in game

Markieff Morris hits a 14-footer off the glass, but Davis answers with a tough fallaway jumper over Marcus Morris. OU has made some tough, tough shots in the second half to keep this one from getting too out of hand.

Steven Pledger hits a three over Collins, and OU has trimmed the lead to 14. Self calls timeout with OU on a 10-2 run, and this whole second half has lacked energy from KU’s players and fans.

KU 72/OU 50 — 7:20 left in game

Aldrich gets his offense going after the break, putting in a left-handed layup followed by a short shot inside. He’s also fouled the next time down the floor, making a free throw to give him five straight KU points.

KU 64/OU 44 — 10:30 left in game

It’s been too easy for KU with dribble penetration. Marcus sets a screen for Collins, and literally no Sooner steps up to defend one of the best driving guards in the country. Collins simply takes it straight to the rim and finishes with a layup.

Morningstar drives under the basket, but his layup attempt is blocked by the bottom of the rim. The guard is able to deflect the rebound back to Collins, though, and the senior knocks in a three from the right side. A bit of the swagger comes back too, as Collins thumps his chest twice. He’s made three of four shots this half and now is 5-for-11 from the floor today.

More poor defense by OU. Robinson sets a ball screen for Reed, who dribbles all the way to the rim for a layup. Someone has to step up defensively for the Sooners to stop the basketball.

Some KU fans pack up their coats to leave. I guess watching a Big 12 trophy presentation isn't a strong enough draw to stick around.

KU 56/OU 33 — 15:32 left in game

Xavier Henry with a pass over the top, and Marcus Morris snatches it away to make sure it isn’t stolen. The sophomore finishes with an uncontested layup. That hasn't always been an easy shot for him this year.

Xavier misses his first shot of the game, as his stickback try is blocked from behind. That’s kind of a lousy way to lose a perfect night, if you ask me.

KU 52/OU 31 — 17:15 left in game

Taylor with two good offensive plays to start the half. After getting an outlet pass, he zips a pass to Collins, who is fouled on a layup attempt. The next time down, Taylor takes his man to the basket, sprinting across the basket before putting in a quick layup from the left side of the rim.

It’s all going in for Xavier Henry tonight. He puts up a guarded 19-footer, and the ball bounces hard off the rim, then off the backboard and the rim again before falling through.

Collins curls around an Aldrich ball screen and swishes a 14-footer. Good sign for KU.

Capel calls timeout, as KU has opened the second half on an 8-2 run.

KU scoring — Xavier Henry 18 (7-for-7 from floor, 2-for-2 from three, 2-for-2 from the free-throw line), Collins 7 (2-for-7 shooting), Taylor 5, Marcus Morris 4, Robinson 4, Aldrich 2, Markieff Morris 2, Morningstar 2.

KU was 18-for-32 from the floor (56.3 percent), 4-for-5 from three (80 percent) and 4-for-4 from the free-throw line (100 percent).

OU was 10-for-33 from the floor (30.3 percent), 2-for-10 from three (20 percent) and 7-for-9 from the free-throw line (77.8 percent).

KU out-rebounded OU, 20-18, in the first half. Both teams had six first-half turnovers.

Halftime thoughts

Well, one Jayhawk has busted out of his Big 12 slump. Xavier Henry looks every bit of a one-and-done now, and not just offensively. He’s crashed the boards for four rebounds and also has been focused defensively.

I think it’s officially time to start worrying about Collins’ shooting. The rest of his game was OK offensively (four assists, two turnovers), but at some point, he’s going to have to shoot better than 30 percent from the floor. KU might be best losing the high-ball screen and instead just letting Collins take the overmatched Mason-Griffin all the way to the basket.

OU’s defense was about as bad as I tried to advertise. But still, it feels like KU should be up by more than 15.

Twenty-four of KU’s 44 points were from in the paint. That tells me if KU works the ball enough, it has been getting easy looks.

Encouraging minutes for Thomas Robinson with four points and two rebounds. If he’s just able to relax on the court and not try to make something happen on every single play, he might be able to provide a spark for KU off the bench in the postseason.

KU 44/OU 29 — Halftime

Collins puts in a guarded three, but unlike his uncontested shots earlier, this one goes in.

Marcus Morris once again takes his man inside, finishing with a turn-around in the lane. That’s a tough move for anyone to stop.

KU is getting beat defensively by poor rotations. Following ball screens, the Jayhawks are double-teaming the ball-handler but aren’t able to get back to their original men. A few quick passes from OU, and Crocker puts in a three.

Xavier isn’t cooling down, though, as he hits a long three from the right side. He’s now 6-for-6 for 16 points.

KU gets it to its hot hand, and Xavier deilvers, hitting an 18-footer around a screen. Make it 7-for-7 for the freshman.

Collins puts in two free throws in the final seconds, and KU takes a 44-29 lead into the break.

KU 32/OU 21 — 3:36 left in 1st half

Xavier Henry with a block on Crocker on one end, then a drive to the hoop for a layup on the other end. OU is doing nothing to stop KU’s dribble penetration in this game.

Cade Davis cuts to the basket, putting in a layup with a foul, and following a Taylor miss, Gallon puts in a short shot in transition. Self calls timeout.

The break doesn’t help. Collins turns it over when his pass is deflected, and Crocker follows with a dunk on the other end. Morningstar misses a contested three, and Davis pops in an unguarded three to push OU’s run to 10-0. Self calls his second timeout in 47 seconds.

Xavier Henry ends the drought, putting in a three from the right side. Give the assist to Marcus Morris.

KU runs in transition after another OU miss, and Xavier puts in a tough shot off the glass with a foul. Henry has 13 points on a perfect 5-for-5 shooting.

KU isn’t taking care of the ball well in this one. An Aldrich travel gives KU six turnovers already. OU is forcing just 10.8 turnovers per game this season.

Crowd has been dead today, as I'm sure you've been able to tell.

KU 24/OU 9 — 7:59 left in 1st half

Reed penetrates around a screen before pitching to Tyshawn Taylor for a three that swishes through.

Markieff Morris picks up his second foul, and Self checks in Thomas Robinson.

Collins misses a shot, but Robinson hustles to save it from going out of bounds. After taking a dribble, the freshman puts in a layup. The crowd gives him a nice ovation.

KU has been giving Collins high-ball screens when he’s been defended by Mason-Griffin, but honestly, I don’t think Collins needs them. Mason-Griffin isn’t a great defender, and the screen seems to just bring more traffic that Collins has to dribble around.

Speaking of Mason-Griffin, he tries a behind-the-back pass that dribbles out of bounds. Capel calls timeout.

Collins drops a pass inside for Robinson, who pivots a few times before putting in the short jumper off the glass.

Collins curls around a screen and is wide open, but he misses the 15-footer. He just can’t buy a shot. After a KU steal, Collins misses a contested layup before Taylor tips it in. Collins is just 1-for-5 from the floor.

KU 15/ OU 6 — 11:14 left in 1st half

Another miss by Tommy Mason-Griffin. OU’s Tiny Gallon makes things worse for the Sooners with a silly over-the-back foul trying for the rebound. That’s two fouls on Gallon, and he’s one of OU’s only threats for boards inside.

Fitzgerald finally puts in a 14-foot jumper at the 13:21 mark for OU’s first points of the game.

Aldrich answers immediately, fighting for position before putting in a short hook shot. He hasn’t missed many (or any) hook shots in the last two games.

Collins with a nice move in the lane, splitting two defenders before putting in a scoop shot off the glass.

Nice pass over the top by Tyrel Reed, and Markieff Morris slams it home for the easy two.

KU 7/ OU 0 — 14:54 left in 1st half

KU wins the tip, but Aldrich has a shot on an up-and-under move slapped away. The big man tries to grab it, but he fumbles it out of bounds.

Marcus Morris hits a baseline jumper over a defender for KU’s first points.

The Jayhawks are unselfish with it early. Marcus Morris, Sherron Collins and Xavier Henry all pass up shots before Xavier slashes to the lane and puts in a layup with a foul.

Oklahoma looks rushed on its first few offensive possessions. The Sooners are one of the slowest-tempo teams in the Big 12, but that hasn’t been the case so far.

Cole Aldrich picks up an over-the-back call, and KU coach Bill Self checks him out quickly to try to avoid the big man’s second whistle.

Following a miss by Andrew Fitzgerald, OU has started this game 0-for-8 from the floor with three turnovers.

8:09 p.m.

For a few seconds, the pregame video didn't appear on the videoboard. It reappeared a few ticks later. The KU fans rejoiced.

7:23 p.m.

Our pregame chat is open. I'll be talking there until gametime.

Just a reminder to use the "Submit a question" link to post a score prediction, to submit a comment or to ask a question.

Today's random question: What is your first-team All-Big 12 roster as of today?

7:05 p.m.

Welcome back to the Newell Post Live, coming to you from Allen Fieldhouse where the No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks are getting set to take on the Oklahoma Sooners.

Part of coaching is trying to exploit an opponent's weaknesses to try to give your team the best chance to win.

So, if you were an opposing coach, how would you attack the Jayhawks' offense?

It's an interesting question to think about. Would you use a zone? Would you double-team Aldrich? Would you double-team all KU's post players? Would you have your players pay special attention to Sherron Collins? Would you try to guard the perimeter well to try to force KU to beat you from the inside?

Perhaps one of the greatest strengths of this year's KU offense is that there really is no correct answer. A quick look at the statistics on KenPom.com back this up.

The Jayhawks score 26.9 percent of their points from the three-point line. The national average is 27.0 percent.

The Jayhawks score 52.2 percent of their points from two-pointers. The national average is 52.0 percent.

The Jayhawks score 20.9 percent of their points from the free-throw line. The national average is 21.0 percent.

What does this tell us? Well, the Jayhawks are extremely balanced in their scoring. There isn't one strong area (two-pointers, three-pointers or free throws) that you can try to eliminate to take Kansas out of its offensive game.

Just for reference, here are the splits for the other top 10 teams in the AP poll.

National average — 27.0 percent three-pointers, 52.0 percent two-pointers, 21.0 percent free-throws.

Kentucky — 23.4 percent three-pointers, 55.1 percent two-pointers, 21.6 percent free-throws.

 Purdue — 22.6 percent three pointers, 55.1 percent two-pointers, 22.3 percent free throws.

Syracuse — 24.4 percent three pointers, 57.4 percent two-pointers, 18.2 percent free throws.

Duke — 29.4 percent three pointers, 48.7 percent two-pointers, 21.9 percent free throws.

Kansas State — 25.4 percent three pointers, 49.4 percent two-pointers, 25.2 percent free throws.

Villanova — 27.5 percent three pointers, 48.8 percent two-pointers, 23.7 percent free throws.

West Virginia — 29.6 percent three pointers, 49.8 percent two-pointers, 20.6 percent free throws.

Ohio State — 29.5 percent three pointers, 52.3 percent two-pointers, 18.2 percent free throws.

New Mexico — 31.2 percent three pointers, 45.4 percent two-pointers, 23.4 percent free throws.

I'd go with a box-and-two or triangle-and-three and hope nobody notices.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

So, basically, you are asking for free coaching advice? What if the OU coach is reading this blog? Not so fast, big fella. What is in it for me???

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

OK, seriously, I'll answer that... But I have a prediction, a brag, and a question...

KU 96, OU 62

Check the score predictions from the CU game mr. smarty pants. I was pretty darn close.

Remember the thing that a lot of us old folks talk about: the Billy Tubbs time out with 5 seconds left and the team stood at half court and flipped off the crowd in overtime??? Then the net cutting down. Well, being in OKLA, sentanced to hard labor for 6 years from 1986 - 1992, their excuse was that we did it to them on their home court the year previous. So, talk to Mr. Bedore and let me know if there is any truth to that...

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

aralls — Great call. I like it.

kuwells — If Jeff Capel has to resort to the Newell Post for his coaching advice, then he's got much bigger problems than a 13-13 record.

Having said that, can't you just picture him furiously searching the Internet right now in the locker room, trying to come up with something?

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

Oh joy. The game ahead of this one has Bob "Time Out" Huggins. The up side, he's already burned two of the five.

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

94-68. Not a bad guess KUWells. You probably didn't factor in that Bzdelik would leave his starters in even with Jordan Juenemann on the court.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Jesse: In fact, that 13-13 record suggests Capel just want my advice and may be in a chat room as we speak...

However, Capel has one huge problem tonight if Warren does not play.... As he is the key to how I would defend...

First, as your statistics point out, this team is a pure pick your poison kind of team... Meaning, shut down Cole and Morris squared or the guards run wild. Sherron has an off night, Cole to the rescue. Your stats prove this.

So, how do you beat KU? Well, Capel and Calapari, here is how that works. First you need an athlete (or two or three) and you cut the head off the beast. Cole wont dunk if no one can get him the ball. Sure you expose yourself to backdoor cuts and the trickery of a motion offense, but you put a man in the face of the heart of the team. You trap the ball at midcourt. You play an agressive man to man and roll the bones. You make KU work for every shot and you keep the game away from transition. Unfortunately, with a team like KU has, I just dont see how the strategy works unless Sherron and Taylor are having pretty bad games. But, it will take a couple of stars falling into alignment to make this work. Or, a Cornell like showing by OU.

That will be my standard hourly charge.

Now where is the much less difficult to answer obscure question????

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

So, Jesse, what was that about? Was he punishing his team for playing No. 1, or was he just trying to get 20 points in the last 6 minutes of the game to make me wrong? I would have been more correct guessing that Coach B would have had his players running the stairs at AFH.

And as you may imagine, I did not factor in the J-Factor or not pulling starters. I was pretty ticked to see that. But, it would have just flipped the numbers. KU would have scored more and CU less. So, my CU number might have been correct, but the KU number would have been higher. Can I have some statistical analysis for that, sir???

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

kuwells — I've printed off your message and will hand-deliver it to Capel.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 11 months ago

KU 83 OU 79

No, wait, that was a few years back. How about -

KU 83 OU 65

Eurekahwk 9 years, 11 months ago

I think Michigan's trapping zone was probably the best bet. We haven't seen it before or since.

markster956 9 years, 11 months ago

Big 12 1st Team selections: Sherron Collins, Jacob Pullen, James Anderson, Damion James, Cole Aldrich. Can we give Marcus an honorary first team?

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Honestly, I think with Sherron down to two and counting, I think Zero U is screwerd, blued, and tatooed. Capel could have the gameplan in hand since December and OU is going to get rolled. He has no chemistry, just like UNC, or any of the other preseason Top 25 teams not receiving votes.

This blog might just turn into a music discussion or the ever popular discussion of the merits of global warming, global climate change, and recycling by half time.

Hey, I havent had vodka yet. So, is this a jinx, or is my clear thinking have to suffer for the sake of a W. And no, memhawk, jayhawkinmullen, mikendal, lance, bigdaddy, and NH and Dynamite: I'M NOT AT THE GAME!!!

Jim Dickerson 9 years, 11 months ago

jesse--- Who is calling the game for ESPN?

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

KUwells — Don't know why Bzdelik didn't sub there. I like him as a person, but it seemed a bit silly to not throw in a few benchwarmers late.

jessejayhawk — Big Monday=Musberger/Knight.

Jim Dickerson 9 years, 11 months ago

Thanks jesse. Guess I can leave the sound on. Vitale = mute button.

kupopp 9 years, 11 months ago

KU 90, OU 67

Huggie losing, but a lot of time left.

Referencing your question on Saturday, Lake Placid and Park City have luge and skeleton schools and youth programs. Maybe more schools elsewhere.

Christopher Hauser 9 years, 11 months ago

I doubt we get to see half of the first half of the KU game on ESPN due to the Uconn vs WV game that is close to the double bonus with 9 minutes left. Big surprise.

NH_JHawk 9 years, 11 months ago

kuwells -

to borrow from an old cliche - "if it ain't broke then don't fix it" aka...get out the goose! lol....

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

kupopp — Interesting. I had no idea about luge/skeleton youth programs. Guess they do exist.

Kusportsshould Notrequirethis 9 years, 11 months ago

Jesse,

Has there been an announced game start delay as the little east game between WVU and UCONN still has 8min to go and is close?

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

Is stupidmichael sleeping again? My prediction of a 35-point win won't be any good if he doesn't utter his famous line before the game ...

sawman3333 9 years, 11 months ago

I wonder if Bob Knight will comment on the Kevin Keitzman petition to get rid of him and Musberger

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

fan — They usually never announce the later game time. At 7:50 p.m. here, we have 13:30 left on the scoreboard clock. When it runs out, we have the starting lineups, which usually take about five minutes. I'm guessing we'll start at around 8:08 again.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

NH, problem in the kuwells freezer. Only Stoli. Is this a problem??? Oh, it sure makes OJ good. Yummm...

sawman3333 9 years, 11 months ago

Jesse Have you ever had any interaction with Bobby Knight? Was he around earlier in the day?

loudog 9 years, 11 months ago

Anyone have the streaming video link?

Thanks.

Philip Garver 9 years, 11 months ago

Thanks again Wells. LOL. Just kidding, you actually came through in Austin. Though I believe my presence may have had something to do with that.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

No stupidmichael???? OK, we all have to work together:

I'm scared.

Marcia Parsons 9 years, 11 months ago

Bob Davis just announced that Cole has been selected as Academic All-American of the year.

mom_of_three 9 years, 11 months ago

UConn and WVU will take forever to finish at this rate 5:12 left in the game. Have the radio at the ready.

CaramelMacchMan 9 years, 11 months ago

Who is ready to watch 10 mins of first half and 20 mins of second half KU game on ESPN?

I know it.. I know it. This Big East game is never going to end on time.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Bigdaddy: You were face down in a gutter on 6th street. How is that help!?!

At least I was stalking Longhorn Girl...

Jesse Newell 9 years, 11 months ago

sawman — I've never had any interaction with Bob Knight. I did see him earlier in the press room, as he was led in to get some Chipotle.

Philip Garver 9 years, 11 months ago

Wells, I meant to ask you, did your Blackberry run faster in the thin air of Colorado?

Jack Wilson 9 years, 11 months ago

Big thing to watch tonight is if Markieff continues his uptick .. a rebounding machine and has seemed to improve quite a bit in the last 5 -7 games.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

If we join the game 10 minutes in, we might just miss it all...

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Bigdaddy: I forgot my berry in the hotel room in Austin. I got distracted by my game date, Holly Rowe.

NH_JHawk 9 years, 11 months ago

Watch. The last 3 minutes of this game will actually last another 20 in real time. We will join the KU game already in progress with 14:55 left. Did I mention I don't like the Big East?

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

ESPN sounded a little sensative to when the KU game would start.

phillyh3 9 years, 11 months ago

to beat the jayhawks you need to get ku's guards to force shots, play out of control, turn the ball over and not feed the post.

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

i wouldn't want uconn as the 8/9 seed in our bracket

sawman3333 9 years, 11 months ago

Hell has frozen over! ESPN switched to us!

Kusportsshould Notrequirethis 9 years, 11 months ago

technical fouls with 42.4 to play, down by 8. Thanks Huggins

kshaw04 9 years, 11 months ago

You can try espn360. There are some regions of the US listed as black out areas. The game just started.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

UCONN plays Metallica. They can't be half bad. Huggy 2 Ts and out. He just wants out of the game.

Also, did y'all see that Balbay has a torn ACL. Things just got worse for the Horns.

NH_JHawk 9 years, 11 months ago

Easy to read Huggins's lips right there. Hilarious!

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

ESPN doesn't switch in Texas. But, game on now...

kshaw04 9 years, 11 months ago

KU scores...Morris gets 2. OU turnover

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

The Jayhawks cant buy a field goal? Damn Mouseburger. Pay attention.

kshaw04 9 years, 11 months ago

Maybe Knight forgets, but we don't forget we are highly capable on defense.

CaramelMacchMan 9 years, 11 months ago

X is developing right in front of our eyes.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

The Morris boys have come out aggressive.

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

kuwells: But did you notice how ESPN put the early score up in the corner of the screen and the crawl at the bottom.

Lance Hobson 9 years, 11 months ago

Marcus is going to have a rough night. Shouldn't matter.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

I did notice that. Quite impressive. I guess they read kusports.com!

Apparently they redirected a sportscenter commercial funding to some technology. We might have to do without a Danica Patrick commercial...

Did any of you all catch that Viagra commercial??? Right, like if I'm "in the zone" for four hours, I am calling a freaking doctor?

And another stragtegy to beat KU I should have put on the list, wear goofy assed suit as distraction.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

Is that the first time the words "Morningstar" and "teardrop" have ever been used in the same sentence?

Paul Meyer 9 years, 11 months ago

Apparently Bobby read the petition to oust him. All positive now.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Ouch, that is going to leave a mark... Someone needed to let Sherron know something bad was about to happen.

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

No kidding. When did Brent and Knight fall head over tarheals in love with Kansas?

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

how many years in a row have we not faced OU's best player? Warren this year. two straight years of no blake.

we are going to put a kstink like run on OU for years to come.

Steve Gantz 9 years, 11 months ago

This is not Billy Tubbs Oklahoma. Brent is head over tarheals in love with himself.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

I'm scared that scaredmichael is too scared to post that he is scared.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

Musberger says KU may not have the talent of uk? Are you kidding me? Musberger is the biggest idiot on tv!

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

TRob with 0 turnovers! He may be the tourney bloomer for the 6-0 run....

Oops. Not so fast. Goal tending...

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

OK, it is the elephant in the room, but does anyone see Jerrod Haase his Sr. year when they are watching Collins right now....

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

Did you see the focus in the eyes of Taylor in that defensive start after the fast break tip in.

Steve Gantz 9 years, 11 months ago

Truehawk93 just watch a tape of the 88 NC game against Oklahoma to find out what an idiot Musberger is.

KU08 9 years, 11 months ago

I really hope Sherron ends his slump by the K-State game. He's had too great a career to shoot 4-for-16 (or something like that) in his last game at Allen Fieldhouse.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

Collins going to have another 2nd half explosion?

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

UK has 4 lottery picks, including 2 top 5 that will likely be NBA all-stars (assuming they stay out of jail). We have two, and wishful thinking that either will be an all-star. These are just facts.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

Good for Cole.

Congratulations Condor!

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Hey, why was coach Self laying on the floor of old Hoch during that interview?

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

wissox- He is getting worse by the game!

Paul Meyer 9 years, 11 months ago

Me thinks Big 12 might be the most "competitive" conference for those teams following us, but Big East might have more talented teams without a clear number one like us.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Hey, trueblue9, although we are impressed you have internet in Kentucky, but I think your still is cooking a little too hot right now.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Well, that isn't going to help the Knight: bench Collins argument... Interesting to see where he heads with that line this game.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

what's up with the white headbands? The cheerleaders need to take them off!!

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

i'm going to waffle again. if X keeps this up for the remainder of the year he'll probably bounce. i'd love to see him stick around for another and do this night in and night out.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

You'd think Brent and Bob would know what they are talking about if we didn't watch every game to know otherwise.

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

Holly Rowe: In other words Bill Self was ready to pop a hemorhoid.

Martin Rosenblum 9 years, 11 months ago

Bobby Knight probably rejected most all of the other commentators that were suggested until Musberger was brought up to him. Musberger is probably one of the few that Knight didn't chastice when he was coaching. Knight's contempt for journalists surely made it tough for ESPN to pair him up.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 11 months ago

"The only thing we have to fear is stupid_michael's lack of fear itself." -

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

can't remember the last time i've seen Cole misfire on so many passes.

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

Thats some clever banter. I was just justifying Musberger's comments to the above post calling him an idiot. Compared to Bob, he's a genius.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

drgn - that was mean, but I chuckled.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

When did defensive players get to push and shove down low? Cole needs to start pushing his way to the rim! They're going to bump and push him all night long!!

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

So the game against K-State will be senior night?

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

these refs are idiots or due you want to argue trueblue

fansincewilt 9 years, 11 months ago

We would be in big trouble without the the guy from Oklahoma - 18 points in the first half.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 11 months ago

And the Big XII officials make an impact on the game - kinda like a cat makes an impact on a litter box.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

OU wants to push this pace this will be a 100+ game for KU

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

I have no idea, was that a complete sentence?

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

did you see OU calling that last play against Collins! lol

fansincewilt 9 years, 11 months ago

I figured OU would really be ready for Big Monday. They looked pretty bad for much of that half. In some cases we were getting such easy shots we weren't waiting on the good shots.

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

comparing sherron to tebow is actually one of the more intelligent comments i've heard this year.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

Hubert - are you freaking kidding me?

Jim Dickerson 9 years, 11 months ago

drgnslyr---- My Goose died but Josey Queervo came to the rescue so I think Holley is lookin really hot right now. Any reason for that?

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

Wrong answer Hubert. Just cackle some more, fake laughing usually covers up stupidity.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 11 months ago

Mavericks 64 Pacers 48 7:20 3rd Brandon Rush 2 points for Indiana

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

The ex Notre Dame coaches love KU.

Digger - god bless his goofy highlighter schtick - always talks us up and have you ever noticed that Lou Holtz always is a KU and Big XII homer, too? The year we went to the Orange Bowl he was our biggest advocate.

nobody1793 9 years, 11 months ago

Digger just compared Sherron to Tim Tebow? I think I'm going to puke!

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

some kentucky fan (coworker) broke my 2008 national championship coffee mug the other day by throwing it onto a cement floor. I was pretty pissed about it but now I take it as an omen that I will be able to buy a more recent replacement in a few months.

lovemyhawks 9 years, 11 months ago

how sad..... why did you have to say that about sherron??? maybe cole too?? wow..... we will miss them tremendously!!

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

dragon, i took it as more of a leadership comparison as opposed to an athletic comparison

Chuck, it sounds like your co-worker has some anger management issues. Stay away from that guy when Kentucky loses in the Sweet 16.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Chuckberry: What the hell did you do to the Kentucky fan? I hope you broke him on the cement floor...

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

Kentucky = only 1 seed to ever lose in first round :)

jaybate 9 years, 11 months ago

Best first half news: Xavier is doing the Talking Heads thing...Burnin' Down the House!!!!!

Next best: Ty has zero TOs.

Worst first half news: Sherron not really in the game.

Next worst first half news: Weak rebounding against a weak team:

KU 20 OU 18 (7 offensive)

How do you say get out the string trimmer. Coach Self is going to be trimming the asses off the KU bigs this half time.

Invisible men report:

TRob finally got a shot and did a few good things. My god is he going to be good next year, or what?

Jeff Withey: no shot.

Elijah: It may take a burning bush appearing at center court for The Prophet to get a look. Too bad.I wouldn't mind seeing him get some minutes tonight.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

I'm probably a little out of style with the kids fashion-wise, but as someone earlier said, "Capel dresses like crap".

Andy Tweedy 9 years, 11 months ago

As I watch this game, I can't help but think that every player who had a higher ceiling has improved this year! I was shocked back in January when people on this site were questioning HCBS. He really seems to have this team coming together!!! This might be a really fun ride come March...

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

well i may have played that up to a bit more than it was. he swears it was an accident and my back was turned when it happened. supposedly he accidentally knocked it off the counter.

so i did nothing. what am i going to do, I'm surrounded by kentucky fans. actually i really hope we get to beat them. I don't want any excuses from them, i want us to shut them up

sparky1958 9 years, 11 months ago

A lot of love for the wildcats during the halftime show. Que the jayhawk crybabies

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

dragon, ditto. that's why that comparison never would have occurred to me.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

The kensuckers just can't stay away!! I love it. Let's see if they can make intelligent comments.

Are you kidding me? A Purple Nurple Troll on the board during our game? Dude, get a life.

I will sllep well tonight knowing I made this board uncomfortable.

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

KU08 9 years, 11 months ago

It's been a while since Markieff has made a three. He should try shooting in the paint for a change.

Does anyone here really think Calipari will go to the Nets, or are you just trying to torture UK fans? He already was once coach of the Nets and failed. What's the incentive to go back?

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

sparky - thanks for interjecting some life into the board tonight in the midst of this KU blowout. Come back next Wednesday so we can chat some more.

Calipari - the guy can recruit but he can't coach. Why is he a hot commodity in the NBA where X's and O's probably matter?

sawman3333 9 years, 11 months ago

Dear Mr. Musberger: 10 States does not equal the whole country. Give me a break!

KU08 9 years, 11 months ago

Good points, Conando (do you mind if I call you Conando?). I didn't know about the part ownership deal - that's a pretty big incentive along with coaching Lebron. I still can't believe anyone would consider leaving UK (or any of the top four programs) for the NBA. However, Calipari has a history of jumping to the next level when the NCAA is about to throw down the gauntlet. If he's with the Nets next year, I wouldn't be surprised if UK has its season vacated. Just a hunch.

fansincewilt 9 years, 11 months ago

If we were leading by fifteen at half and now lead by nineteen, how is it possible we have been outscored by two?

sparky1958 9 years, 11 months ago

sorry guys hearing about sharon collins filled me with the urge to deficate

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

Subtraction by addition. Which is similar to addition by subtraction. Knight must fancy himself an accountant.

Dave Chance 9 years, 11 months ago

ChuckBerry - here's how you get back at your toothless coworker. My first job after graduation I worked with a Mich St Spartan. I forget what he did to piss me off, but one evening after work, I took his Sparty mug into the men's room and crapped in it. This was about 20 years before cell phones and digital cameras, or I would've taken a picture. I washed it out thoroughly with soap and put it back on his desk. The next day, as we drank our coffee together, I told him what I had done. He kept drinking and said, "Nice". I never saw that mug again, and he never messed with me again (actually, we were chums and it was all in good fun, and pretty sick now that I look back on it, but it would be a really good thing to do to a Kensucky fan).

Clarence Haynes 9 years, 11 months ago

Poll Question - If you could only have one or the other which would you choose?

  • Beat Missouri on their court for win 2000 or
  • Win the Big XII Tourney Championship

sparky1958 9 years, 11 months ago

14 point lead against a sub par, over-matched team hardly a juggernaut LMFAO

KU08 9 years, 11 months ago

Beat Mizzou for win #2000. Easy choice.

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

if bill is that pissed at the starters for half-assing it, PUT IN OTHER PLAYERS. ok, i feel better.

I'd take beating Missou...never bad to take a loss in the conf tourney to get the fire going

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 11 months ago

melrank: We probably need both to be the overall # 1 seed in the NCAA.

Ben Kane 9 years, 11 months ago

easily 2000 at MU. screw the big12 tourney. as long as we win one game i'm good. after that it only servers to tire us out.

Ryan Mullen 9 years, 11 months ago

People are leaving for the exits early wow.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Sparky: I think your urge to deficate came from having your roomate up your tailpipe.

newyorkjayhawk 9 years, 11 months ago

i might one of a very few who posts on this site, but i'm a huge fan of bob knight... i just really appreciated how his players very infrequently if ever screwed up off the court, i think he recruited cleaner than most other coaches, and i appreciate any coach who values defense more than offense... his temper was obnoxious and his dress code is even worse, but i can't help but respect his coaching tenure and i honestly believe that college basketball is worse off without him on the sideline.

BUT CAN HE NOT COUNT???? SHEESH, IT WAS 15 AT HALFTIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

memhawk: Excellent definition of irony.

sparky1958 9 years, 11 months ago

I guess I would have hoped fror an original thought fan408785 wait wait not on this board LMFAO

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

KU08: I bet that is my first one to get whacked....

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 11 months ago

Sparky's urge to deficate required a trip to a little building in the backyard.

tis4tim 9 years, 11 months ago

They better f-ing pull their heads out. This is becoming too close.

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

Is it a sign that we have accepted the fact that we are a really good team that the board hasn't imploded with our lackluster 2nd half (not to mention the fans are already exiting)?

Or is it a sign that the goofball from Manhatten has entertained us while the team has sleepwalked after halftime?

Brent is trying his best to convince us that this is still a game.

Martin Rosenblum 9 years, 11 months ago

Is Mason-Griffin a half-brother of the Griffins who played for OU?

Kusportsshould Notrequirethis 9 years, 11 months ago

Well Sparky,

I have to give you that. It's a shame that our rivalry has been so diluted by KU's win after win. Hold out hope though. Maybe someday you can cheer for the "second strait" win over KU in the "Hawktagon of Gloom."

sparky1958 9 years, 11 months ago

good night uk hawkers your wife will be home soon

brent has money on the sooners. love the blatant talk of the spread. lets get a check on the over/under.

Ryan Mullen 9 years, 11 months ago

I am going to have to say that our road crowds have been better than our home crowds this year.......very pathetic

trueblue9 9 years, 11 months ago

come'on espn, you can't give brady credit for games he had a red-shirt on for. next year he'll become the most winningest jayhawk ever. yay.

On a night where they are going to hoist a trophy half the fans leave.

kshaw04 9 years, 11 months ago

Nice that capel went back and spoke to both collins and aldrich in the line. Not bad...6th conference title in a row, 124 wins for collins, and an academic all american POY...

melrank 9 years, 11 months ago

drgn - right on.

It is no surprise we mailed in that 2nd half. This was a total mismatch and we were never remotely threatened.

Coach Self now has plenty of ammo for additional coaching and teaching.

Let's get ready for a tough road game in Stillwater.

kshaw04 9 years, 11 months ago

would be even better if we played the whole game.

KU08 9 years, 11 months ago

KU: 1997 wins UNC: 1998 wins

That's why, melrank, we need to win #2000 vs. Mizzou. It would be so awesome to beat UNC to 2000.

jayhawkinnc 9 years, 11 months ago

bobby knight is an idiot. he kept saying oklahoma had outscored kansas by 4 points in the 2nd half at one point when KU was up 17. KU was up 15 at halftime. KU had outscored OU by 2 when he made that comment. what's he thinking?! fortunately Musburger (and perhaps a ESPN producer) corrected his mistake.

Joe Baker 9 years, 11 months ago

I like Capel and he's a huge improvement for the OU b-ball program. He's waiting for Coach K to retire!!

Yes before Bramledge or Bramladge Colliseum they played in Ahern and I saw a few games in that barn...tough place for us back when Teddy Roosevelt was commander n chief. seems that long ago. (it was Nixon for those with no history time line)

jaybate 9 years, 11 months ago

Tonight's amazing statistic:

Sherron and Cole committed 5 of our 6 TOs.

Maybe experience is over rated. :-)

WilburNether 9 years, 11 months ago

I really resent paying $100 for a ticket and then see the team mail it in for the second half.

Self should not have let them celebrate clinching a tie for the Big 12 regular season championship after such a stinking lack of effort in the second half.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Dang, mullen... Going for the post deletion??? I'd rather be the former than the later. At least you get some action....

Oh, give them credit lighthawk. Bush was president when they last beat us in that gym....

jaybate 9 years, 11 months ago

Kieff continues to impress me with his emerging game. The guy has turned into a seriously productive rebounder and an efficient scorer, who will throw it down, when the time is right. Kieff, finish this season strong and you are going to be a stud next season.

Ryan Mullen 9 years, 11 months ago

Jaybate,

What are you crippled or DISABLED. Never underestimate experiance.

Steve Brown 9 years, 11 months ago

someone ask would we rather do something in columbia or sprint center.

here are the rankings by me: 1. NCAA Championship 2. Big 12 Regular Season Conf. Championship 3. Final Four 4. Undefeated home season AFH: don't mess up our house. 5. Beat KState & Mizzou all four games. + any post season games. 6. Defeat KY, UNC, UCLA, and any other program that has W/L over us lifetime. 7. Keep all players healthy. 8.. Good food, cold beer and hot chicks at the games. 9. play well in the meaningless post season tourney enough to not lose a seeding. winning it means tired legs for the real tournament, first round bump by CU or ISU fine with me, albeit a minority view:

jaybate 9 years, 11 months ago

WiburEither,

Lighten thee, friend. No game is worth $100 bones, therefore it does not mattereth a quaker's tithe, be the game mailed in or hand delivered. Besides, how can thee complaineth with a team being up 20 with 16 to go. It would have been a wasted of a juice to get KU up for OU. OU sucketh. Thee needs to pray to a basketball god for inner peace.

Steve Brown 9 years, 11 months ago

Wells I was referring to Ahern, and it wasn't used since before Carter.

Ahhh, understand lighthawk... That place was almost fun.

And jayhawkinmullen: Maybe both. Them are the shortest jaybate posts ever.... Although, I presume you are having fun with conversations from the other day???

KULA 9 years, 11 months ago

Hey HEM, how'd you like my son, Tyshawn's game tonight? Did you hear what Coach Knight had to say about him? That's what I've been talking about. I guess Coach Knight & I kinda think alike, lol. On second thought, though, he did miss a couple free throws. Maybe we would be better off if he transfered, like all the geniuses on this board want, lol. I'll stand by what I've posted before--TT's gonna be a star on this team next year with multiple 20 pt games.

Btw, did you see Self yank Brady after those two BONEHEAD plays? 1. Causing Sherron to get credited with a TO by breaking away from the pass (just like he did to TT in the KState game) and 2. Taking an ill advised shot off the dribble (that's not in his game) to try to make up for it. Self appropriately yanked him immediately.

Steve Brown 9 years, 11 months ago

Jaybate I paid more to get into some final four games in dallas (LSU Dook Louisville) and kansas city (MSU, Dook, Oklahoma) that were worth it to me...

Kyle Helmer 9 years, 11 months ago

sparky-

You are a reTARD. I know your team has only been on Big Monday one time and you celebrated the win like it was 1999, but go do something else with your time. You are a jealous purple putz who has never won anything...seriously, anything. If you had half a brain you would realize that his game was a blowout from beginning to end unlike the game the Mildcats played against NU last week. We are good, you are not, we are right, you are wrong, we are strong you are weak. If you are so inferior that you must visit this site during KU games and actually take the time to get a sign in name, then you obviously have no life. Stop being a poser and either become a fan of TGBPOAT (the greatest basketball program of all time), or go home and comb your fake Pullen beard.

By the way, KSU is 2-39 the last 41 times they have played TGBPOAT.

Unfortunately, I had a conflict tonight and could not watch the game. Very pissed I missed it. Sounds like we had a good first half and an awful second half. But a win, none the less.

Tony Bandle 9 years, 11 months ago

Having the trophy at this game is like erecting a 100'-0" lightening rod in a thunderstorm and telling fate not to hit it. I can't believe this was HCBS's idea!!

Something tells me Lew lurked behind the scenes!! Win the games now;save the trophies for later.

I guess we just saw our "deep" rotation for the tournament..I'll bet it gets down to seven at crunch time with Reed sitting next to his sister!!

The good news is CBS will have so many commercial breaks that everybody's starting five will play most of the game!!

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

mullen:

First: I missed it, I saw the after chatter. I wish you would have copied as well. Second: gamemichael has it? So, how much? Third: I love you too. But, just to be clear. Like a brother. A brother I killed when I was three because he looked at me kinda funny. A brother from different mothers. Are you flirting with me? I remember the man boob comment. That hurt.

mikendal: Interesting evening - read the comments above. A ferral kitty joined in. StupidM blew us off. I consumed vodka. Cant believe I didn't get a comment deleted. Sorry about your commitment-get your priorities straight buddy.

jmullen,

Make him post it again. Now that I know he's got this new pump, I want to see him get to work and post it again. It isn't gonna kill him to do it. Pretty please, with brown sugar all over the place, make him post it again. You know his hot buttons, jmullen, it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo funny for a guy with a new heart. I want jhann to post it again!

Jaybate, He basicly said in a 2 paragraph pulitzer prize winning way how and why he wanted to kill you.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

For real???? Gee, I cant imagine why it was redacted...

So, what was the preferred method? Taking away his internet access? Changing his kusports.com access code?

Ryan Mullen 9 years, 11 months ago

bhann, Do you live in Wichita. If so are you related to the btk killer, if so creepy.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

I remember that bhann posted one time that he lived in Mullen, Nebraska.

Man, what does it take to get deleted on here? I think some of my stuff is over the top. Congratulations boys, it must have been pretty bad. Shining example of Jayhawk sportsmanship.

Well kids, I'd like to get to bed before Parishawk starts posting....

Good night john boy.

Jaybate, I will make him post it again but, you have to do something for me first. The next football article that comes out on the kusports.com you have to make a comment on there about how much you love Kansas football.

Wells - if you type the word midget with any combination of Oliver North that usually does the trick.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Dynamite: I wish I understood that. Apparently a conspiracy theory in the making... Dude, we won last night!

And can anyone decode hairman69's statement. What the hell does that relate to?

dynamitehawk 9 years, 11 months ago

Wells: Yes, a great season so far. I've had posts deleted that referenced Oliver North and midgets and in hindsight I realize how much of a freak I really am. :)

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

Damn dynamite. Winner winner chicken dinner for the freak award! But seriously, I used deficate, urge, and tailpipe in the same sentance and nothing. Someone may have extra filters turned on for you!

I guess I was going for the record in deletions.

Ryan Mullen 9 years, 11 months ago

4 deletions in one post that must be a record.

Kent Wells 9 years, 11 months ago

It might be a record indeed. How many deletions until you are suspended or whatever??? Hate to lose you around here you big dil, err, dude.
