Brannen Greene rubbed the back of his head as he signed a few autographs after Kansas University’s 85-53 victory over Washburn on Monday night in Allen Fieldhouse.

The sophomore wing from Juliette, Georgia suffered a concussion after running into the Ichabods’ Stephone Drane with 17:23 remaining. Greene, who scored three points while playing 11 minutes the first half, didn’t return to action.

“He got his bell rung pretty good. I can’t see him practicing the next couple of days,” KU coach Bill Self said. “We’ll definitely take the very cautious approach of when he can come back and I don’t know when that will be yet.”

He looked like he was just starting to find his rhythm. Washburn played physical in the 2nd half.

Physical? More like dirty. Three or four KU players got hurt.

Cliff's gotta call that screen for him. Withey allowed (I think) Tyshawn to get hammered a couple times before it sunk in.

Spot on RJ that was on Cliff. At least shout duck or Look out.

The announcers of the game mentioned they thought the Washburn coach had told his players at half time to be more aggressive. The Washburn team was a little more than aggressive the 2nd half. Three of KU's players had to leave the court.
