How Keegan voted: Jan. 7 AP college basketball ballot

I think Tharpe & Young are the most improved players this year (not including seniors)

Naadir Tharpe’s nadir: Freshman not sulking over lack of court time

"What I love about KU is basketball is that you get to see these guys develop if they stay for 3 or 4 years." Exactly. Self and his staff (Andrea Hudey deserves a mention here) know how to turn these boys into men don't they? I mean Robinson, Jackson, Morris twins, Kahn, Taylor, Withey on and on. Kansas fan or not how could one not be impressed when they consider we have no All Americans on this squad. Tangent time! ...
This team really "gets after it" when they want to though and it's mostly a credit to coaching we are so tough to beat. And many times we just appear physically stronger than our opponents. Sometimes we even play a bit dirty. I've seen some cheap shots go uncalled and the Morris twins used to do that, Robinson seemed to catch that bug at one point, but I guess my point is Kansas doesn't back down. Oh well it goes both ways but I just say let the play do the talking. And it's not surprising that this team has made those late come backs. They are playing confident and hopefully are going to peak at the right time. 1 seeds are banged up - stage is set eh? Self could make history! Yet they've exceeded my expectations already. And after that Purdue game I've concluded we're going to punch NC State in the mouth this weekend and play lock down D like they've never seen before!! Then punk Roy Williams' team again. Those softies are gonna hate playing against our D. Either way this season has exceeded my expectations. Rock Chalk

Naadir Tharpe’s nadir: Freshman not sulking over lack of court time

I've read lots of comments on here doubting Tharpe's role on this team. This guy is very very good. Just like how last year people were doubting Withey when the potential was obvious the same is true of Tharpe. Next year he will be a big part of this team regardless if we land Shabazz or not to go along with McLemore and Johnson. Tharpe is a smart player who is an incredible passer and great shooter. The epitome of a team player. His time is coming.

Elijah Johnson’s big three reflects ‘great confidence’

I would envy any team that had to face the likes of McLemore, Johnson, Muhammad, Ellis, Withey and regular doses of Parker (who should go pro after Junior season), Releford, Tharpe, Traylor .. on and on. But for now, it's NC State. Let's take care of business! Rock Chalk.

I think both Shabazz and Parker will play together at KU. I think the epic conclusion to that Border War game may have been bigger than we realize. From a recruiting standpoint it could not have been scripted any better. KU is the place where 4s and 5s become stars. Shabazz and Parker want to play together and want to win a championship. There's no place like Kansas.

It takes two: Kansas draws Detroit in Omaha, Neb.

Whoops Traylor - not Young.

Wait time out time out. While we're predicting the future:

Ben McLemore, Shabazz Muhammad, Elijah Johnson, Perry Ellis, Jeff Withey

Key Bench: Tony Parker, Travis Releford, Andrew White, Naadir Tharpe, Kevin Young

Any takers?
