Benton Smith: Ochai Agbaji has become key player for KU after just 10 games

Ochai Agbaji wasn’t supposed to play this season. The Kansas basketball team, it appeared, didn’t need the freshman guard from Kansas City, Mo. Sure, KU’s coaches loved his longterm potential. But Agbaji could take a redshirt year and the Jayhawks would be just fine without him, what with their McDonald’s All-Americans and returning players with Final Four experience. By Benton Smith

Benton Smith: Mistakes prove costly as KU drops rivalry showdown

Manhattan — For all that Kansas State had done well this season, particularly while putting together a six-game Big 12 winning streak heading into Tuesday night’s Sunflower Showdown with Kansas, the Wildcats’ offensive prowess couldn’t exactly be considered a point of concern.

Notebook: Big 12 race heating up after Kansas falls to Kansas State

Manhattan — Kansas coach Bill Self has never been one to tell his players how to handle the league race. Sure, he wants them to pay attention to scouting reports and game plans and the concept of focusing on what they can control. But when it comes to off nights in their dorm rooms or study sessions with their laptops, Self doesn’t really mind if the Jayhawks focus their attention on the league standings or do a bit of scoreboard-watching.
