Kansas guard Brannen Greene (14) tries to quiet the Texas crowd after a three during the first half, Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015 at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
Brannen Greene's surgery to repair a torn labrum has been deemed a success.
Toughness, the No. 1 word uttered by 21st-century college basketball coaches, typically evokes images of a guy taking a charge, rebounding in traffic, successfully finishing a drive while getting hammered and then knocking down the free throw.
Kansas University sophomore Brannen Greene, who scored 14 points in 20 minutes during the Jayhawks’ 75-62 road win at Texas Saturday, had not practiced the previous two days.
