Jamari Traylor, Brannen Greene & Landen Lucas talk about KU's 109-56 win over Emporia State
Bill Self says KU was better vs. Emporia State but still has work to do to be ready for Friday night's season opener.
Kansas basketball junior walk-on Evan Manning hit a three-pointer in the closing moments of the Jayhawks' exhibition victory over Emporia State, with his mom and dad in the stands. Dad Danny Manning is a first-year coach at Wake Forest.
“We went 1-4 flat. I told everybody to get out of his way,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He made the shot. Danny was in the locker room after. It was good to see Danny. Evan is a great kid. It was good to see him do that in front of mom and dad.”
What did Danny say to his son after the game?
“Nice shot,” Evan said, smiling.
