FINAL: KU defeats MU, 77-56

Wow, Tyshawn Taylor has looked great in the second half of this game. At the end of the shot clock, he spins in the lane before putting in a fallaway jumper. He’s a perfect 5-for-5 after starting the game 0-for-8.

Xavier Henry is knocked to the floor on a foul. The MU fans cheer. Guess if you can’t beat ‘em, beat ‘em up?

Elijah Johnson misses a three, but Robinson is there for the rebound and stickback to put in KU’s final points.

KU closes out an impressive 77-56 victory.

KU 61/MU 42 — 7:39 left in second half

KU breaks MU’s press, and Xavier Henry uses an aggressve move to take advantage on the other end. He draws contact, putting in a layup while drawing a blocking foul. He also adds the free throw.

Aldrich with a big block inside, and it leads to a runout for KU. Collins beats two Tigers down the court, throwing in a quick layup to extend KU’s lead back to 11.

Reed swishes a three for KU, then turns to Tiller and barks something at him. You can tell Reed gets a little bit more pumped to play MU as a Kansas kid.

Taylor comes away with a defensive rebound, and he leads the break. He makes a great decision in transition, kicking out to the hot hand Reed for another three that swishes through. Reed is pumped, thumping his chest twice with his fist before MU calls timeout. Suddenly, KU has rebuilt a 15-point lead and sucked a lot of life out of the arena.

After starting 0-for-8, Taylor finally gets his first shot to go in, putting in a shot off the glass. Reed comes away with a defensive rebound, and he throws ahead to Taylor for another layup. Reed is having perhaps his best game of the year with 11 points and four rebounds.

KU 46/MU 40 — 11:45 left in second half

Collins misses two free throws. KU needed those.

Markieff Morris misses a shot inside, and Keith Ramsey puts a short jumper in on the other end to cut KU’s lead to nine.

Morningstar loses the ball in the lane, and that’s another turnover for KU. Once again, MU gets points on the run, as English is fouled on his way to the rim. He makes two free throws, and MU’s fans crank up the noise level down only seven.

MU is starting to rack up the team fouls with its aggressive play. Two quick whistles, and the Tigers are up to five this half.

Morningstar with another turnover, dropping the ball out of bounds in the backcourt. Self is furious. It looked like Morningstar wasn’t sure if he could pick up the ball in the backcourt when, in fact, he could. The fans let Morningstar have it, chanting, “D-U-I. D-U-I.”

Tiller drives into the lane, putting it in for two with a foul. He completes the three-point play, and MU has a 10-0 run.

Collins is fouled, and he hits two free throws to break KU’s drought. Perhaps more importantly, KU will be in the bonus the rest of the way.

Hustling for a rebound, Marcus Morris bangs his head hard into the scorer’s table — so hard the scorer’s table gives way a few feet. Play is stopped for him (predictably, the MU fans boo), and Marcus lays motionless for a few minutes while trainers attend to him. Even when he starts to get up, some MU fans clap, but others continue to boo. He finally gets to his feet and walks off on his own power to a mix of cheers and boos, but I don’t think we’ll see him back in this one. The trainers take him straight to the locker room.

KU 44/MU 33 — 15:57 left in second half

Aldrich makes it look easy on the first possession of the second half, catching it in the post, turning and putting in the short shot.

English follows with an open three for MU. The Tigers immediately press, and Taylor turns it over out of bounds after getting double-teamed in the backcourt. Zaire Taylor follows with a mid-range floater, and MU’s fans have reason to get back into this game.

Two more turnovers by KU, one from Collins and one from Marcus. That’s three straight empty possessions for KU. Not a good start to the second half offensively.

Taylor misses a jumper, but Aldrich is there to slam home the rebound. He hangs on the rim a few seconds to avoid an MU defender below him. The MU fans clamor for a technical foul but don’t get one.

Marcus Morris with another turnover, and Tiller finishes with a fast-break layup. Timeout KU, which has started the second half with four turnovers in the first 3:59. The Jayhawks had just seven turnovers in the first half.

KU scoring — Marcus Morris 10 (5-for-6 shooting), Collins 8 (3-for-4 shooting), Markieff Morris 6 (3-for-3 shooting), Aldrich 5, Reed 5, Morningstar 2, X. Henry 2, Robinson 2.

KU was 17-for-34 from the floor (50 percent), 3-for-7 from three (42.9 percent) and 3-for-4 from the free-throw line (75 percent).

MU was 11-for-32 from the floor (34.4 percent), 1-for-11 from three (9.1 percent) and 1-for-3 from the free-throw line (33.3 percent).

KU out-rebounded MU, 25-15, in the first half. KU had seven first-half turnovers, while MU had six.

Halftime thoughts

Two stats scream at me in the first half. No. 1 is the three-point shooting, where MU is just 1-for-11. The Tigers have missed plenty of open looks, too. No. 2, is turnovers, as KU has just seven giveaways. Those were two of the biggest keys coming into this one, and MU hasn’t capitalized in either area.

Once again, KU is dominating the boards with a 10-rebound advantage. I’m sure Self would have taken that spread had you offered it to him before the game.

Remember, MU came back from a 14-point halftime deficit to win last year. I wouldn’t count them out of this game just yet.

It’s pretty amazing how well KU can play even when some of its best players don’t play or shoot well. Xavier Henry and Tyshawn Taylor combine to go 1-for-11 in the first half, and KU still leads by 16. So many teams in the tournament will have to have their best players play well. KU doesn’t necessarily need that to win.

KU 40/MU 24 — Halftime

Xavier Henry pulls down and offensive rebound and puts it back in for KU. Marcus Morris follows with a drive and tough layup off the glass.

Markieff Morris has checked back in for KU. Looks like he’s OK.

KU’s offense is really clicking now. Collins — who had shot just once all half — buries a three, and MU calls timeout.

The Jayhawks are one of the best teams I’ve ever seen at executing and getting two-for-ones at the end of the half. After getting possession with a minute left, Self motions for his team to hurry, and Collins buries a quick three. KU, once again, will have the last possession.

The execution pays off. Taylor gets a steal late in the shot clock for MU, and he’s able to bat the ball ahead to Collins, who puts in a layup with three seconds left.

Collins scores the last eight points of the half for KU, and the Jayhawks end the half on a 16-0 run.

KU leads, 40-24, at the break.

KU 26/MU 24 — 3:20 left in 1st half

The public address announcer keeps calling Markieff Morris, “Markrieff Morris”. Kind of a weird pronunciation.

After seeing his brother take over the scoring load for KU, Marcus Morris does the same. Marcus puts in two short shots inside, then buries a two with his foot on the three-point line. He holds his follow-through for a few extra seconds, and MU calls timeout down, 24-20.

Markieff Morris stays down on the court with an injury (maybe to his foot?). We'll see if he checks back in this game.

Morningstar with an offensive rebound, and he puts in a fadeaway on the baseline. KU starting to pull away on the boards, 18-13.

MU 19/KU 18 — 7:16 left in 1st half

KU finds some success inside the paint, as Markieff Morris puts in consecutive baskets. The Jayhawks have a huge edge in there if they can get the ball to their bigs.

Reed misses a three, but Markieff is there once again for the rebound and stickback. That's a 6-0 run for Markieff himself.

KU has pulled closer with lots of help from MU. The Tigers have missed three straight open threes.

KU is on the run, but Collins dribbles the ball off his foot, which results in a turnover. Bowers dunks it on the other end, and Collins' struggles to be productive have continued in this game.

Thomas Robinson has checked in, and he comes out offensively with an NBA-like spin move around a defender to get a clear layup. Robinson has always showed those kinds of flashes of greatness.

MU 17/KU 10 — 11:30 left in 1st half

Bowers gets a tip-in for two on the offensive glass. The next possession, he fights for another offensive rebound. MU is more than holding its own on the boards so far.

Sherron Colins falls down defensively, and Self motions for him to get up. Collins is late doing that, and J.T. Tiller puts in a jumper over him. Self calls timeout and checks in Tyrel Reed for Collins.

Marcus Morris ends the KU drought with a layup, but English follows with another three and Marcus Denmon hits a jumper. The crowd is going crazy here, already sensing that the Tigers are playing well enough to pull the upset.

KU 5/MU 4 — 15:30 left in 1st half

Laurence Bowers sinks a long two for the first points of the game. Once again, KU is late getting out to a shooter near the perimeter.

After turning it over on KU's first possession, Cole Aldrich responds with a dunk and foul. He completes the three-point play with the free throw.

Kim English misses a long three, Better defense there by KU.

Marcus Morris takes at least four steps on a move to the rim, and he's called for a travel. Two turnovers already for KU.

Aldrich misses a shot, but he tips in the follow. The big man is too eager on the defensive end, though, getting a reach-in whistle. KU coach Bill Self makes the quick substitution to get Markieff Morris into the game.

GameDay Cram Session: Missouri

KUSports.com online editor Jesse Newell and Journal-World sports editor Tom Keegan take a look at what to expect from the Kansas basketball team's matchup against Missouri.

12:37 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: Did you think the Antlers' prank on Tyshawn Taylor was funny or mean?

12 p.m.

Welcome back to the Newell Post Live, coming to you from spacious Mizzou Arena in Columbia, Mo., where the second-ranked Kansas Jayhawks are getting set to take on the Missouri Tigers.

After nearly getting run off the road by J.T. Tiller's red truck in the parking lot, we have arrived safely in the arena. KU's players are trickling onto the court for warmups, and they are all being greeted warmly with, as you'd expect, a round of boos from the Missouri students gathered here.

I actually always enjoy when KU matches up with Mizzou because I know that there will be great pregame analysis over at the MU fan site Rock M Nation.

Friend of the blog Bill Connelly once again provided an extensive and interesting statistical breakdown of the Jayhawks. Yeah, there's a twinge of homerism you'll have to deal with, but it's worth it to read the statistical breakdown he's done.

Perhaps the most interesting I found is his breakdown of KU's adjusted game score per minute statistic, which attempts to illustrate the complete performance of a player over the course of the season. In that statistic, Collins is fifth among KU's regulars (behind Cole Aldrich, Marcus Morris, Xavier Henry and Markieff Morris). I think this once again says what most of us have suspected for a while: Collins has received a lot of deserved praise, but because of his recent slump and poor shot selection, he hasn't had nearly the positive value to the team as he did earlier in the year and perhaps last year as well.

Also, Ross Taylor compiled two pregame, 10-minute podcasts that you still have time to check out. One of those interviews features yours truly, so it's obviously the best breakdown of the game that is available on the Internet (I'm joking of course).

Be sure to check out those links and also interact with our features on the left side of this page. We have a poll up, and also be sure to use the hashtag #kubball to have your Tweets appear in our grid.

What a sad, pathetic life one must live to be a Missouri fan. A soulless existence.

KU: 85 MU: 79

duanep5ku 9 years, 10 months ago

Hi has anyone heard about Josh Selby news today. Their is mention that he will not visit UK and his mom said something about Kansas does anyone know anything about this?

okjhok 9 years, 10 months ago

Unfortunately, looks like we're gonna get screwed again by national tv coverage. The early CBS game is still at halftime. I'm betting we miss the first 5-7 minutes, easy. And, of course, unless you live within radio broadcast range, you can't listen to it either, which is just wonderful. Oh well, let's get it done, 'Hawks!

theajayhawk 9 years, 10 months ago

With WW Wes declaring to be an agent, may be his first three clients will be Calimari, Labron and Wall...all headed to the Nets. How cool would that be?

dynamitehawk 9 years, 10 months ago

Why must we play after Mr. "I'm Jay and I'm going to foul even if we're ahead" Wright and his Villanova squad EVERY single game?

Chris1955 9 years, 10 months ago

I'm not a proponent of animal abuse, however, this is MIZZOU we're talking about. KU by 13.

KU 85

MU 72

kennetha 9 years, 10 months ago

that poor boy that can't listen to the radio with bob davis and chris piper... that makes the game for me. listen to them and watch on tv. --- in fact, guess pipe was gone the osu game..--- we needed him there to win that game.... i missed you pipe...... so today-- we are ready to kick the tigers good and put up with all the mu fans... go hawks

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

Take away 8 points from us because we're on the road, give them 8 because they're at home. In Lawrence it was 84-65, so today it's 76-73 Rock Chalk KU.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 10 months ago

Hey! WVU scored 40!

Ain't the Big East fun?

ParisHawk 9 years, 10 months ago

Hope it works for all of us !

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 10 months ago

okjhok:

You can stream audio feed from a couple of radio stations. www.lazer.com. Although right now they are in blackout mode until after the game. Also, kfhradio.com out of Wichita. That is the one I have going right now.

Alec White 9 years, 10 months ago

We're going to miss at least 10 minutes of our game because Huggins and Wright obviously preach fouls over basketball. Honestly, do you think they spend any time on offense and defense or just how to foul without being conspicuous? It's like watching two Kansas-States going after each other, except with much less basketball skill.

JaHawk4Life 9 years, 10 months ago

Here it is 1:00 and there is still over 5 minutes of game time left in this Big East nightmare. This is riduclous! Effective immediately, in all Big East games the players shall foul out after 3 fouls. When they are out of players the game is over, which will be sometime in the first half.

Mike Kendall 9 years, 10 months ago

Man, I thought ESPN on Big Monday was bad. CBS's game (WVA @ Nova), there is still a lot of time left---unbelievable!

Chad Sandwell 9 years, 10 months ago

Anyone know why the jayhawk radio network is blacked out on the interenet....klzr 610 sports kc and klwn are all blaked out....this hasn't been the case all year. did this just start?

Alec White 9 years, 10 months ago

Greg Anthony said it best about the Villanova-WV game: "It may not be pleasing to the eye..." Usually something you can't say about a top 10 match-up...but hey, it's the Big East I guess

KU08 9 years, 10 months ago

Ha ha. I like your thinking, JaHawk4Life.

Foster Coburn 9 years, 10 months ago

We as a fanbase need to send hatemail en masse to ESPN, CBS and most importantly the Big 12 office and let them know it is completely unacceptable to only schedule two hours for Big East games.

This game will be even worse. We'll miss the beginning thanks to the Big East foulfest and then we'll miss the end because this game will be "out of hand". If you'll remember, fans outside of the KS/MO area missed the last 10-12 minutes of last year's game on CBS because MU played poorly.

LPH_hawkfan 9 years, 10 months ago

Why do always have to play after the Big East games? Foul foul foul foul foul.....

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

Here in the south they play crappy SEC basketball on CBS. No Jayhawks today unless I can find it online. Unless of course I want to watch Auburn-Alabama.

PosseComitatus 9 years, 10 months ago

CBS does regional coverage, they should change over on tipoff.

Mike Kendall 9 years, 10 months ago

Hey, I think CBS is finally switching over to Columbia----can't believe my eyes!

KU08 9 years, 10 months ago

My God. After this timeout, there are still five timeouts remaining. I'm bored!!!!!

ku_jayhawk09 9 years, 10 months ago

Does anyone have a video link? The high school championships are on CBS and i dont get the game.

Thanks

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

The KFH radio link comes through. Thanks!

Alec White 9 years, 10 months ago

Now I'm thinking it's not the players or coaches, just bad officiating. Terrible, in fact. I thought the Big XII had it pretty bad, but I can't believe the fouls these refs are calling.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

I can't believe the WVU game is tied....pleas let someone score and win in regulation!!!!!

Mike Kendall 9 years, 10 months ago

Pretty sloppy play, so far! Hopefully, it will get cleaned up.

Brian Powell 9 years, 10 months ago

Veetle link sucks -- they must be running that site on PC in their mom's basement.

The Justin link requires a password - thanks for listing it. (it's PHOG)

The ADHT link I found has rainbow bars on it :(

Justin pixelated it is!

Should be a close game, as usual. Hope we pull it out (that's what she said?) Rock Chalk!

Brian Powell 9 years, 10 months ago

Prediction: Syr. loses, KU wins, we're back at #1.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

This is like torture...Radio link dies with last comment lob inside....did we score?!!!!

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

We are playing absolutely terrible... As always in the first half. Forced shots, no sign of an actual offensive flow whatsoever....

I have a feeling if we carry this into the tournament it's going to cost us an early exit.

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

I can't believe this. West Virginia with a chance to win heaves up a 40 footer. He could have driven the lane. Overtime. That's it, I'm moving back to Kansas.

Mike Kendall 9 years, 10 months ago

Everybody got their wish-------WVA @ NOVA------overtime, baby!

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

10-5 what happened? KU Sports, gotta find another way to post coments. It is taking forever for the page to refresh every time you press preview, post, view....any suggestions?

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Those of you stuck watching WVA/Nova in overtime are literally going to miss the entire first half of the KU game. We're already at the 12 minute mark.

NH_JHawk 9 years, 10 months ago

BCRaven - thanks for the radio link.

If we're lucky we'll catch the 2nd half on CBS.

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

Yep! Gotta show the BE games. If the games were switched and a BE game was waiting, they would have switched. I realize the market crap, but CBS knows they can do this when they have the rights to televise the game!

The barely show updates. This is rich!!!

Any links? Anyone?

kuproud96 9 years, 10 months ago

How come the Big 12 has no Balls???? Every game this year has started before the network airs the game, pathetic!!!!

LAJayhawk 9 years, 10 months ago

what's the password for justin tv link???

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Actually, you guys aren't missing much. KU playing as bad as they have all year. We're lucky missouri isn't up a dozen.

kuproud96 9 years, 10 months ago

phog but they are showing the Villanova game

kuproud96 9 years, 10 months ago

phog but they are showing the Villanova game

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 10 months ago

NH_JHawk:

If we're even in the game come 2nd half.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

thetus...thanks for that encouraging post! This sucks. Hey maybe they know most of the nation is denied the opportunity to see the whole game every time we play on CBS and they are just waiting till we can all see the game to show us the team and game we all know they can play. We can't settle for a loss at MU. Never mind #1 seed outright this is MU.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Agreed Shaw, we've got it down to 14-17 Missou right now though... We're going low, and it's paying off.. Still looks sloppy though.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

nothing like a close overtime and 3 timeouts remaining so 1:23 will take at least 15 minutes.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Just FYI for everyone not seeing it.... Robinson is in the game, and he just absolutely schooled his defender for a free layup. That's good news for us!

Joe Joseph 9 years, 10 months ago

Can Kansas play up to its potential one time this year? Maybe everybody's saving it for the tourney.......

PAHAWK1 9 years, 10 months ago

Update, please. They are showing Vill/WV game on east coast.

kuproud96 9 years, 10 months ago

Why are so many KU fans pathetically pessimistic. I understand trying to down play your expectations so you can cope if we should lose a game, but seriously as if your negativity has anything to do with the outcome. Their either going to win the National Championship or not and no matter how much you criticize it's going to be what it's going to be. Start supporting the team and being a true fan, it's okay to be optimistic, we have a realistic chance to win and that is far better than most of the other teams, just be proud to be a Jayhawk!!! Rock Chalk Jayhawk!!!

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

Like I said...they are just warming up and waiting for the rest of us to see them take over and crush MU. Sounds like the bench and our KS guards are coming through. Good to know they can as we will need this next weekend and in the Big Dance.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 10 months ago

Great - another lecture on how to be a 'true fan'. FNG.....

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

I just saw an update during the Ok State/NU game and we were down 1.

CBS gets the televised rights so they can control what games people watch. They are showing highlights of the game now at the OSU/NU game!!

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

Maybe we have played up to our potential and this is as good as it's going to get.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

Love that TR goes for the hard foul...make them pay!

okiedave 9 years, 10 months ago

Perhaps this is old news but just hit the paper down here this morning. Apparently, some typically pathetic sick-o- Missouri students spread cotton balls on the lawn of Missouri University's Black Cultural Center during Black History Month. Why anybody would want to attend Missouri Un., or be proud to be a Tiger, is beyond me. Another notch in the embarrassing history of the State of Missouri.

mom_of_three 9 years, 10 months ago

Taylor is playing awful, while reed is hustling his but off. Cole needs to keep rebounding. Keep pounding down low to the twins and to cole.

BCRavenJHawkfan 9 years, 10 months ago

If that WV - Nova game goes into a 2nd overtime I may put a 9 iron through my TV.

mom_of_three 9 years, 10 months ago

Taylor is playing awful, while reed is hustling his but off. Cole needs to keep rebounding. Keep pounding down low to the twins and to cole.

jayhawkboogeyman 9 years, 10 months ago

soobawls (anonymous) says… Im sorry but the fact that we are #2 is indicative of just how BAD college basketball is this year. Any other year this would be a #15-20 team.

Are you insane? When in the hell have there ever been 14-19 teams better than 28-2/14-1?

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

Yes...the last timeout called by Villanova and a 2 point lead by WVU..nothing like more commercials.

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

Thank you...WVU just banked in 68-66 WVU...maybe no 2nd OT!

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

kuproud.... Some of us would rather discuss what is ACTUALLY going on in the game. You know, a discussion among fans about what is really happening...

Believe me, fans that cry about criticism and turn a blind eye to the obvious are just as annoying to me as I am to you.

On that note, another 3 by Morris. I can't believe i'm saying this, but I actually like to see him get a couple looks from there each game. He's usually spot on.

KU08 9 years, 10 months ago

I haven't seen the game yet, but it looks like the Morris twins are going off on Mizzou! What's the deal with Sherron. I see from espn.com that he hasn't even attempted a shot yet.

ricleal71 9 years, 10 months ago

I HATE CBS! THEY SUCK! WATCHING FREAKING NASTY BIG EAST! SWITCH OVER TO KU!!!

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

BCRaven, make sure you follow through on your swing or it won't go all the way through.

Matt Bowers 9 years, 10 months ago

I effin hate the big east basketball and how long the games take, cbs won't even cut over to the ku v. screw mizzou game, instead i'm watching a commercial. eff this playing after the big east all the time, were getting screwed

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 10 months ago

BCRaven - Do the world a favor and put it through Huggin's head instead....

PAHAWK1 9 years, 10 months ago

BCRaven, believe me, you will not be alone.

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

LOL- More commercials!!

NH_JHawk 9 years, 10 months ago

We're finally live on CBS with 3:20 to go in the 1st half. Thanks CBS you suck!

brooksmd 9 years, 10 months ago

Come on CBS quit the commercials before we miss the whole first half. Geez. This is crazy. And more commercials.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

finally!!!! and then 3 more minutes of commercials. F***ing H&& I hate paying for tv and seeing commercials

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

TR is the man!!! He knows what it means to defend that KS pride.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

Nice call by the ref. beauty of a play by Aldrich too bad it didn't go in.

Matt Bowers 9 years, 10 months ago

missed most of the first half, who is playing better Markieff or Marcus

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

They were just waiting so we could all see them play!

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

Hey, this was worth waiting for! (I think).

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Well, as soon as you guys got the game, we started hitting all our shots. lol.

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

Fizzou who? And you all were getting crazy with the play!

They look pretty good so far.

Rock Chalk

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

I believe collins shot is back. and that last defensive stand by Tyshan he is playing great on the D

NH_JHawk 9 years, 10 months ago

Was that a 16-0 run to end the half? Lookin' good now!

jayhawkboogeyman 9 years, 10 months ago

So did that 16-0 run shut all the negative nancies up or what?

shawk13 9 years, 10 months ago

They just needed to be on TV, playing pretty well now. Perfect end of the half.. Go Hawks.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 10 months ago

Both twins played well - 'Kieff toughing out an injured shoulder.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

We looked good the last 5 minutes. First 15 was some of the worst basketball of the season. Against a better team, that won't cut it.

Time to start working on consistency. Glad to see we atleast got it together to finish the half though.

kuproud96 9 years, 10 months ago

I have no problem being critical of the team or players for poor play, i just can't stand when it get's blown into worthless prognostication about what's going to happen come tournament time and how were going to lose because of some play that has no effect on what will transpire come tournament time. I get just as irritated with poor play as everyone else, hate when we lose just like y'all but just don't like when people start talking like we're doomed for the tournament. We've all been through the disappointing early round losses and nothing makes it easier to take. That's all i meant. Rock Chalk!!

For those of us who had the pleasure of watching the BE game, oh no I mean commericials, I can't tell you how excited I am to know I will have seen more commercials the KU in the first half.

Mike Kendall 9 years, 10 months ago

Wow! Nice blowout, so far! Jesse, your prediction is going up in flames, man! Still a lot of basketball left. Look at last year's game.

KU08 9 years, 10 months ago

Like kushaw said, the Jayhawks were waiting to start the show until all there fans were able to watch.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Positives: Robinson comes in, gives some great minutes, shows his quickness on the offensive end. Morris's are dominating as expected.

Negatives: Only 5 minutes of solid basketball. We came out looking terrible for the first 15. Taylor has been missing bunnies/layups. Aldrich missing a couple finishes as well.

Overall, I'm happy we're kicking Missou's ace, but we still have to deal with the issue of playing hard for 40 minutes. All year long we've relied on streaky play. Just once, i wanna see us put together 30-40 minutes of solid play.

gchawk 9 years, 10 months ago

KU08 9 years, 10 months ago

Somehow, I'm glad to hear Taylor missed "bunnies/layup" rather than ill-advised shots. Otherwise, he's had a pretty good half, with 4 assists, 3 steals, and 0 turnovers. That's exactly the type of box score he should have with his role on the team.

Chuck Wagstaff 9 years, 10 months ago

"Breaking News! Governor Nixon has declared a state of emergency in Missouri. There is no meth left"

Conando, we were up by only 14 points at halftime last year and lost by 2. So, obviously, we must be heading for overtime this year.

Like I said last game at halftime, a strong 2nd half for Sherron on Senior Night means he has found his groove again. We just can't have those silly off-the-foot turnovers that leads to easy lay-ups and dunks.

bozeman 9 years, 10 months ago

I hope Missouri goes to the Big Ten. They are mediocre and I'd rather have a rivalry with KState or Texas. Missouri fans are always booing as if getting hosed by the refs is the reason they are always losing. They are outclassed. Do you know what they say about defeat Missouri? For every winner there are dozens of losers. Odds are you are one of them.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

fizzou is getting cheap and the refs will let them beat the twins up all day long. They will hack a twin all day. This is all fizzou knows to do is hack and foul. Hope to get a turnover. The twins need to stop getting so deep on the baseline.

someone share with sherron when he shoots FT a little more in his fingers than the ball down in his palm his % goes up.

We play 5 solid minutes of basketball each half and try to skate by. We gotta stop doing this crap.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Ignorant negativity, you bandwagon "fluffers" need to open your eyes. We aren't playing well, despite some bad officiating.

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

Yeah pretty stupid to have hardware without protection right at the sideline!!

How did that foul go against Aldrich? I hope the announcer was wrong. The guy hadn't even gotten to Aldrich when the foul was called.....

Great balance by TT and feed to Tyrel. Another 3.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

I love Reed. That kid doesn't get nearly the respect he deserves. Always coming in giving 110%, and he's lights out from the 3.

Joe Baker 9 years, 10 months ago

Reed jumps out of his shoes, comes down and gets some ball for a steal. These refs are letting the teams play for the most part.

Does anyone else see the tiggers hand checking KU on top of the key??

KU needs to get physical and start blowing this game out NOW!

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

I think the difference with Reed and Morningstar is they haven't just been playing MU for four years with Noland Anderson as the coach. They get why most of us have a deep hate for MU...Norm Stewart.

Mike Kendall 9 years, 10 months ago

Show Tyrel's sister, one more time for CBS---one last look!!!!!

Reed does play 110% and he will do well in the Dance.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

by the way ...they may have learned in their KS history about the civil war and the jayhawkers fso they know what side they want to be on!

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

We are playing a lot better defense the last 5-10 minutes... Taylor is also looking very confident from 3.

Hopefully we can put all these things together in the B12 tournament right before heading into the NCAA tourny.

kshaw04 9 years, 10 months ago

One bit virtual cheer for marcus. Too bad the MU fans can't appreciate the importance of MM returning to the game.

What's up with a shot clock violation. Looks like with our lead we are getting a little too loose and not paying attention. I hope Marcus' not being able to get ahold of the ball isn't because of an injury leading to him not being able to get the ball.

Steve Gantz 9 years, 10 months ago

I didn't read the article but the Wall St. Journal called Syracuse a new dynasty or something to that effect.

Theutus 9 years, 10 months ago

Biggest positive of this game in my opinion is the play of Taylor. He's really turned things around since getting a starting spot (even though I don't think that should matter).

He looks confident, and he's getting good looks and creating. Wish we could have seen some more minutes from Robinson today though.

Especially once we got up. He's got a ton of ability, just needs some floor time to get comfortable.

Brian Powell 9 years, 10 months ago

Kye Clark 9 years, 10 months ago

kshaw - I'm sorry, but Reed can't guard a ham sandwich. I love the kid and he hustles, but twice when Missouri was making runs he couldnt stay with his man, rode his shoulder the whole way into the lane, and made things worse by giving up the "and-one" foul. He gave us a great spark offensively off the bench, just saying I don't think "great defense" applies. I think I split the game ball between Marcus and Tyshawn. Marcus did have 5 turnovers, but otherwise was great. Taylor played great, but started off I think 0-7. That's a lot of shots to be constantly putting up. Regardless, nice 21 point thrashing.

Jim Dickerson 9 years, 10 months ago

dihrdhwk86--- They do have a pretty good med school. Unfortunately they do not have a course for neutering cats. They have to have the Jayhawks do it for them.

dust off your sandals and leave town. bring nothing of that place back with you.

glad we go there every year so 16,051 can see a fine college basketball team at least once a season.

Twin Towers you rock. Reed spot on. Taylor - coach Hurley would be so proud of your progress....THANK YOU.

KU08 9 years, 10 months ago

I'm rooting for UNC tonight over Duke. Now that the 2000 wins race is over (for #2), I don't have any reason to root against UNC. Plus, if Duke loses, it likely loses the #1 seed, which would probably go to KSU. I think that would be pretty cool.

jhokfan 9 years, 10 months ago

Sweet!

I would have preferred to see the first 16:40 but that last 3:20 to close out the half was quite impressive.

Good-We won the game-77-56--2nd half team play,Rebounds as a team,1st time in 6 years MO lost their last game at home, Bad-we need to work on beating the press--had to find something--lol ugly--18 to's is to many for the new #1 team in the country

+/- Player rankings= + for every pt made,steal,reboound, assist,block - for every fg missed,every 3 missed, every ft missed and TO

  1. Taylor--------------18 pts.
  2. Marcus Morris--16 pts.
  3. Aldrich-------------15 pts
  4. Reed----------------12 pts
  5. Collins-------------9 pts

  7. Robinson----------9 pts
  8. Moringstar--------3 pts

Overall, a great win!! 23 bench points, wow!!!! We killed them on the boards and scoring in the paint--The to depmartment was bad 18--need to be under 10-With Syracuse loosing today, we will be # 1--Win the Big 12 Championship and the # 1 overall seed is ours.--Collins had 4 to's and Marcus had 5--way to many for 2 of our starters.

X not such a factor today but marcus more so than he has been for a few games. sherron not wanting to start big but at least he is finishing big. LOVED all but the turnovers...... some real ugliness and out of control-ness at times but great runs to put them away overall!!! OH...saw a great shirt today...... KANSAS.... TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN...... eating both ksu and mizzou!! priceless and so true!!! hope we are ready for a big run now..... thru the big 12 tourney and all the way to the NC!!!!! we CAN .......... hope we are ready to DO it!!! RCJH!!!!!!! huge win today!! thank goodness for tyshawn's second half.... think he was 0-8 then finished 5-5!! loved the start for cole and reed had some great moments........ didn't like the defense at times but the 3s were huge!!

Norm Stewart often stated how he would never spend a dime in Kansas or allow his team to eat or stay the night in Kansas. Fact is, Kansas businesses would not allow Stewart or his players into their establishments.

KURocksChalk 9 years, 10 months ago

Great win in a nasty place. KU will steamroll the competition through the Big 12 tourney and all the way to the NC game in the NCAA. Self is a better coach than Roy in my opinion, which is saying a lot because Roy was a genius in some schemes. What Roy lacked seemed to be a situational awareness, when he needed to call a time out, check someone out, bring someone in. I think that Self is much better at that. He will have the guys out there that have it for the tourney. This will be fun. We have an excellent chance to win it all. To me, that is a conservative statement as I actually think we will win it all.

HvacHawk 9 years, 10 months ago

I always knew that MU fans were generally classless and moronic, but the abhorrent display that they put on in response to Morris' injury was a new low in Misery's crappy history. Granted some fans clapped for him when he got up, but there was a substantial amount who ACTUALLY BOOD him for getting injured. Heard the same boos when X went down, and I am pretty certain that I also heard this same pitiful chorus when Markieff went down hard and took a second to regain his composure. More reason to hate MU, the state, and the ignorant people who live there. ROCK CHALK losers!!!

KUTPO 9 years, 10 months ago

Sorry to say HvacHawk, I live in Missouri and I will bet I'm a bigger KU fan than you. Don't judge us all by our address. I hate MU, meth heads and Antlers too. Where do you live?

Marcia Parsons 9 years, 10 months ago

I had my TV muted and listened to Chris and Bob, and you could hear the boos very clearly over the radio. But I have to say it seemed like that was a minority of the fans there. When they started to do it a second time, everyone else clapped to drown them out.

TarzanKUfan 9 years, 10 months ago

dihrdhwk86: On that video, if that guy would have come down screaming at me, I think I would popped his a**. I would never expect something like that to happen the other way at KU game ... never have seen it.

You are right on .. the way most Mizzou fans behave is just plain different than other fans. Never seen anything like it. It all stems from a deep insecurity. They have nothing, and have never had anything. Never will.

Glad every time we pound them.

Tony Bandle 9 years, 10 months ago

Due to the reciprocity program between Kansas and Missouri, a large percentage of architects in St.Louis [including myself] are Jayhawks. I have two brothers, also native Missourians who are Jayhawks and four nieces who are or will be Jayhawks.

To indicate that if you're a Missourian you can't be a Jayhawk sounds so ignorant, it almost equates you with the level of an ignorant Misery fan.

TarzanKUFan...I have a room named in my honor in a Kansas Scholarship Hall and my wife has an original painting of a Jayhawk of all things hanging in the same hall...what have you done except look like a fool!!

About the game, a subtle but significant stat is that Missouri got held to a miserable three point shooting percentage by the Kansas defense. This partially explains the imbalance in rebounding due to the "long rebound" nature of missed threes.

This will also be significant down the line as everyone knows that the middle is no place to try to beat KU!! { I think the short, chunky guy from OSU hitting all his threes really pissed Bill off.]

OakvilleJHawk, "I have a room named in my honor in a Kansas Scholarship Hall and my wife has an original painting of a Jayhawk of all things hanging in the same hall...what have you done except look like a fool!!"

I really hope that you are a CEO, because that was so prideful and arrogant that it made you sound like the fool. By the way I was being sarcastic I also live in MIssouri. Thank you for making youself look dumb though.

What happened to "40 minutes of hell"? Mizoooooooo looked like reeeeeal crap! They don't even look like NIT material to me. Anderson gave absolutely no credit to KU. WAH, WAH, WAH. We lost Stafford, we lost our composure, we lost our ass!

                                    KState may suck, but MU swallows!

                                                         RCJH!!!

Everybody relax. We are all fellow citizens of the Jayhawk Nation no matter where we reside. Don't waste your energy arguing about silly things. Save it for the real battles - next week in Kansas City and afterward as we head into the Big Dance.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Oakville, Don't worry about Tarzan... he's a nobody. Congrats on the great history/pride/room back in Lawrence. I'm an MD and unfortunately had to train for 3 years in St. Louis before moving to Colorado. Although I met some great people and have some good memories from there, I attribute my true hate of Mizzery due to the crowd at the SportZone in Shrewsbury. Spitting and cussing in front of kids... nice. Booing at Marcus today... soooo typical. This classlessness of their fans is why I truly want them out of our league.

Soobawls says, "Im sorry but the fact that we are #2 is indicative of just how BAD college basketball is this year. Any other year this would be a #15-20 team." Great to see you back to your old self. Here's a big hug to you.

KULA: I don't remember, I thought said TT was your boyfriend, not son .. kidding, of course. Point well taken. I would agree. Tyshawn has been a much different player over the past few weeks. There are only a few times where he seems as though he's trying to make his own shot, instead of letting it come to him. And that can be said about most players. What I like best about TT in the last few weeks is that he seems to be under control. looking to pass, and shooting/taking it to the hoop when the opportunity presents itself (now, perhaps we can get Sherron fully invested in that approach .. though yesterday, Sherron was better with that). I'm very encouraged because we'll need TTs athleticism against the big boys.

Yesterday (coupled with the KSU game) was huge .. and shows a lot about our character. Perhaps we have turned the corner.

globaljaybird: What did you mean by "but MU swallows?" Oh .. I get it. Antler fun.

Wow, HEM, no need to get personal just because you were WRONG WRONG WRONG, hahaha!!! A simple, "I'm sorry KULA, you were right and I was wrong about Tyshawn" will do. Don't you owe me an apology anyway for calling me "ignorant" or "insane," or something to that effect a couple weeks ago over my assessment of TT? That's OK--you don't have to apologize. Just sit back and enjoy my kid's play for the rest of the year. And look forward to how good he's gonna be next year. You realize of course that TT is better right now than than Mario was as a soph. Anyone still wondering if you'd rather have EJ or TT for the next two years? Not me, lol. All in good fun.

Chill out.. I didn't say ALL people who live in Mo are Misery fans...nor did I say that ALL Misery fans are incapable of showing class. Just the vast majority as illustrated time and time again. Don't get your panties in a bunch. If you live there and are a KU fan, more power to ya.
