In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m taking the opportunity to thank in-season KU athletes I enjoy interviewing the most.
It's been a rough start to the 2016-17 season for KU's starting forwards, Landen Lucas and Carlton Bragg Jr., but junior guard Devonte' Graham is not worried about his frontcourt teammates. By Matt Tait
After playing just three minutes, missing his only shot and grabbing just one rebound during Monday night’s 20-point Kansas win over UAB, junior forward Dwight Coleby was not quite sure what to tell his father. By Matt Tait
Kansas senior Frank Mason III, listed at 5-feet-11, 190 pounds, entered the night averaging 22.3 points, and came out of it having led his team in scoring in four of five games. Georgia’s 5-10, 155-pound J.J. Frazier came in averaging 18.8 points. The showdown never materialized for a couple of reasons. By Tom Keegan
This Kansas team, at least through five games, appears as if it will go as Frank Mason III, Devonté Graham and Josh Jackson go on most nights. Luckily for the Jayhawks, that trio went very well on Tuesday during a late-tip, 65-54 victory over Georgia in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic championship game at Sprint Center. By Matt Tait
Junior forward Dwight Coleby played his first significant stretch of minutes for the Kansas men’s basketball team during Tuesday’s 65-54 victory over Georgia in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic championship game at Sprint Center. By Matt Tait
A look at some of the keys for fifth-ranked Kansas in tonight's CBE Classic championship game match-up with Georgia. By Matt Tait
Unable to play more than 27 minutes in the first three games of his college career, Kansas freshman Josh Jackson stayed away from silly fouls and stayed on the floor for 33 minutes en route to helping the fifth-ranked Jayhawks run past UAB, 83-63, Monday night at Sprint Center. By Matt Tait
The sooner Udoka Azubuike builds up his stamina and learns to play without piling up fouls so quickly, the sooner Kansas can become a team that does more than dominate teams from the perimeter. By Tom Keegan
Sure, the No. 5-ranked Kansas basketball team utilized its much discussed four-guard lineup options Monday night at Sprint Center against UAB. Really, though, the Jayhawks leaned on just three of their perimeter players on the first day of the CBE Classic.
It’s the SEC and the Big 12 in the championship game of the 2016 CBE Classic. Because of its 83-63 victory over UAB on Monday night, the Kansas men’s basketball team at 9 p.m. tonight will take on Georgia. By Matt Tait
A win over No. 1 Duke and 21-point victory over Siena in the home opener was good enough to bump the Kansas men's basketball team back into the Top 5 in the AP Poll. By Matt Tait
For the first of what could be many, many times this season, Kansas freshman Josh Jackson on Monday was named the Big 12 Conference's newcomer of the week for his play in victories over Duke and Siena. By Matt Tait
Exhausted in some ways and eager for time to work with his team in practice now that he has seen a taste of what it can do in live games, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has one eye on tonight’s CBE Classic clash with UAB and the other eye on the calendar. By Matt Tait
