Column: Games experience to benefit Bragg

When the World University Games stretch of basketball started for Kansas University at Sprint Center with a pair of exhibitions vs. Canada, Carlton Bragg was getting tossed across the lane by a Canadian post player. No whistle. Hello basketball vs. men. Goodbye basketball vs. boys. By the end of the South Korean experience, Bragg was diving for loose balls, giving no thought to protecting his broken nose.

Column: U.S. 'next plays' its way to victory

If your goal is to minimize the gold medal that Kansas-dominated Team USA won in the World University Games, you can find fodder to do so. By Tom Keegan

Column: Bulk of KU’s top 20 football players history

Of the top 21 Kansas University football players in The Keegan Ratings last year, only two possibly will suit up this season. By Tom Keegan
