I always tamp down my expectations when taking a first look at a young big man playing basketball. And then there was Tuesday afternoon’s scrimmage at Horejsi, home of the Bill Self basketball camp.
It was a sneaky-quiet 20 points and it came in a camp scrimmage against his teammates, but the particulars were not important. What was noteworthy was the way Kansas forward Dedric Lawson scored those 20 points during the Blue team’s 81-74 loss to the Red squad at the first Bill Self Basketball Camp scrimmage of the summer on Tuesday afternoon at Horejsi Family Athletics Center.

The summer of 2017 was one of hope for Kansas football.

That’s just fine with David Beaty. By Benton Smith
