No way of knowing for sure, but I hope I’m smarter than a fifth-grader … although maybe not as smart as Miss Cochrane’s bunch.
Kansas had Robinson Crusoe-itis on Wednesday evening.
Sometimes all you can do is look on the bright side. “Defensively, we made plays,” Megan Smith said. “That’s a positive.”
Is Cole Aldrich more like Nick Collison? Or is Aldrich another Greg Ostertag?
In the high-powered contemporary world of major-college athletics, Brett Lisher is an anomaly — a walk-on who starts.
Brandon Macias was an unlikely candidate to produce a game-winning hit.
Who would have believed it? Who would have believed Kansas University’s men’s basketball season would end before the KU women were done? Or that this would be the second straight year it happened?
Carolyn Davis scored 25 points and pulled down 12 boards off the bench, and the Kansas University women's basketball team defeated Creighton in the WNIT, 71-68, on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.
What a difference three months makes. Last time Creighton University’s women played in Lawrence, freshman point guard Angel Goodrich burned the Bluejays for a career-high 20 points in Kansas’ 77-56 romp.
Danielle McCray’s college basketball career may have ended on a sad note, but the future looks bright for the former Kansas University standout.

No doubt Kansas University’s women’s basketball season has been marred by the loss of Danielle McCray, the Big 12 Conference’s preseason player of the year. But would you believe virtually the same thing happened to Prairie View A&M?
Those of you with a head for Kansas University men’s basketball trivia probably know the answer to this question: Who are the only three brothers who have earned letters while wearing a KU uniform?
When Kansas University wins a softball game, chances are Alex Jones will have been involved.
Andrea Riley scored 37 points, Toni Young added 16 and No. 20 Oklahoma State put away Kansas 76-69 on Thursday in the first round of the Big 12 tournament.
Injuries have taken a toll on Kansas University’s women’s basketball team. And the impact hasn’t been just physical.
Twenty-two years. A long time. Bodies are thicker and hair is thinner. Memories tend to grow wispier, too.
Carolyn Davis joined the list of injured Kansas University women’s basketball players, and the Jayhawks were thumped again. With Davis shelved due to a concussion suffered during Friday’s practice session, Texas A&M had little difficulty disposing of the demoralized Jayhawks, 78-54, on Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse.
Four losses in a row is a tailspin, not a crash dive.
Where were you 48 years ago today?
Carolyn Davis summed it up in 14 words. “They played like a ranked team that didn’t want to lose,” Davis said, “and we didn’t.”
On the plus side is a positive RPI. A negative, however, is the brutal remaining schedule.

Fate has dealt Kansas University’s women’s basketball players a bad hand. First the Jayhawks lost starting point guard Angel Goodrich to an anterior cruciate ligament injury in January. And now leading scorer Danielle McCray has been hit with a similar affliction.
I thought Danny Manning was immortal. Sure, he was a tremendously talented basketball player, but I’m talking about his durability.
Danielle McCray seemed almost bulletproof. Every time Kansas University’s All-Big 12 basketball player went down with an apparently serious injury, she always bounced back. Not this time. The 5-foot-11 senior suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during Thursday’s practice, and the college career of one of KU’s most talented athletes is over.

Kansas University’s women’s basketball team lost point guard Angel Goodrich prior to last season, and now the Jayhawks will be sans Goodrich for the remainder of this season.
Mike McCarthy and Mike McCormack. Similar names. Similar distinctions. McCarthy is the only former Baker University football player who has been an NFL head coach. He’s currently the Green Bay Packers’ head man.
That’s not a typographical error. Kansas University’s women are indeed playing a basketball game on a weekday afternoon.
A surprisingly large crowd, stunning performances by Danielle McCray, a long-time coach’s departure and unprecedented territory for Haskell Indian Nations University.
Danielle McCray did something unusual the other night. Kansas University’s senior basketball player recorded her career scoring high without attempting a single free throw.
When Turner Gill was named Kansas University’s new football coach, I told our desk people I thought we had an old black-and-white print of him in our photo files. So I went to search one of the drawers in the large sports-department filing cabinet, found the G section, shuffled through some photos, and there it was — a picture of Gill playing shortstop for Nebraska in the early 1980s.
With her Kansas University teammates in an apparent post-finals funk, Danielle McCray scored 30 points, and the No. 22-ranked Jayhawks flicked aside UC Riverside, 75-60, on Sunday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Call this “A Tale of Two Settlements.”
Anybody around here remember a guy named Todd Reesing?

KU point Angel Goodrich, avoided by Creighton defenders Sunday like she had the bubonic plague, erupted for a career-high 20 points as KU thumped the Jays, 77-56, in Allen Fieldhouse.
Back-to-back wins by virtually the same score were polar opposites as far as Bonnie Henrickson is concerned.
If you didn’t know it already, you found out for certain on Saturday afternoon.
Last time out, Bonnie Henrickson was seeing red. This time, Kansas University’s women’s basketball coach had her players wearing red.

If you think Mark Mangino resigned willingly as Kansas University’s football coach, I have some oceanfront property near Oskaloosa I’ll sell you, and I’ll throw the Tonganoxie Split in free.
Bonnie Henrickson wasn’t awarding any gold stars Sunday afternoon. Kansas University had just walloped Northern Colorado, 81-54, in Allen Fieldhouse, and KU’s women’s basketball coach sounded like the Jayhawks had lost by 27.
