KU teammates seeing new, improved version of Lagerald Vick

I watched a re-airing of the opening conference game, KU Vs Texas, last December 29th. Vick was awesome in that game. He hit 5/8 threes, scored 21 and played 38 minutes. While he may not ever get that many minutes in a game this year, it would be great to see that Legerald show up again this year. It would be very hard to keep a player, putting up numbers like that, out of the game.

Is KU big man Udoka Azubuike nearing a decision?

So, both DeSousa and his guardian are automatically liars because some lying, cheating representative of a shoe company says they are??? His word against two others does not sound like much proof to me. Unless the FBI and/or the NCAA develops proof, actual substantial proof, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the guardian took this money, I say DeSousa and KU get the benefit of the "innocent until proven otherwise" rule.

The Race for Romeo — KU, Indiana and Vandy all vying for 5-star guard Romeo Langford

Who would be asked to seek other opportunities if we were to land Langford: Vick (presuming he does not improve dramatically and enter the draft.), Lightfoot, Cunliffe, De Sousa (not likely)? My guess is that Langford takes a hard look at where he can play immediately, with the least resistance, and chooses one of the other programs. I don't think he will want to compete that hard for a starting spot. I expect Newman will be back after testing the NBA waters (there are too many good guards already a given for the draft) unless he continues to improve and achieves MVP status for the Big 12 or NCAA tournaments.

5 stats that popped in KU’s loss at Oklahoma

I was really frustrated watching this game, not so much about Self not pulling Azibuke, but about him not ever resting Graham. I cannot believe the team would have suffered that much if Self had given him a couple minute rest before one of the timeouts. He was so tired he fouled out. When's the last time we saw that happen?

5 stats that popped in KU’s loss at Oklahoma

In watching this replay, several times, and hearing that Devonte was wrong by not going out with Manek, I don't see how that was possible. Both Svi and Manek were behind Graham, well behind. Unless Svi was calling out to Devonte to go with Manek, he had no way of seeing him move.

Udoka Azubuike says he's open to trying underhanded free-throw technique

I just watched a documentary on Shaq. HIs team tried to convince him to shoot underhanded because of his poor make percentage, he wouldn't do it because he was afraid people would make fun of him. I wonder how many players have the same fear?

Examining the potential impact of KU basketball playing 2 big men

Speaking of Preston, the kid obviously broke some rules. That is fine and good, but what is the wisdom in throwing his whole season out the window. Is it setting an example? This cannot be done in good faith. It appears clear the NCAA has no intention of clearing him, but I don't understand why they will not cut him loose and allow him to sign with an agent and get prepared for the NBA. The dragging out of this process serves neither the school, the student,nor college basketball, in general. C'mon NCAA Free Billy or cut him loose, NOW.

He Will, He Won't, He Might 2017: Udoka Azubuike

The way this young man always tries to tear the rim down seems dangerous to his wrists/ligaments again. I hope he learned from what happened last year.

KU juniors Devonte' Graham, Svi Mykhailiuk made decisions to return on their own

I do not understand where Scott is getting his information. Is it just that one incident in which one of the Lawson brothers said something disparaging to Coach Tubby, or does he have more insight that the rest of us have about these two young men. I sure hope they do not read this comment by Scott and somehow believes that there are other KU fans who feel this way. The incident was unfortunate but to condemn two brothers for one F bomb? That is really disappointing. Who among us has not done something which in hindsight was a very poor choice??

Jayhawks secure outright Big 12 title with win over Texas

i could tolerate Walton because i could turn the sound down or off. What i found most unacceptable was ESPN'S fascination with him, causing more split screens than i have ever witnessed in an NCAA game. Even with my 55 inch tv, I had trouble watching many of the plays on the half screen.
