— Playing with a watery right eye and 12 stitches in his head, Perry Ellis responded with 15 points, three assists, two blocks and two rebounds in 36 minutes on Tuesday at Ferrell Center.

Ellis’ steady play helped the Jayhawks notch a 66-60 victory over Baylor just three days after his head took a pounding in a win at Kansas State.

“It felt good. It’s getting better and better, vision-wise. They said it heals fast. It should be good,” Ellis said of his eye. “Overall it was great. I had no problems with it tonight.”

As to how such a big cut opened on the top of his head Saturday?

“I took a charge (and went down),” Ellis recalled. “I ran into Carlton’s knee and it split open,” he added of frosh Carlton Bragg Jr.

Great stuff, Nick. Gives me chills. Tried to catch the toon with Shazam, but it didn't seem to know it. Any help? I like the sound.

Just a generic bumper track. SoundHound (better than Shazam IMHO) had nothing either.
