Kansas coach Bill Self calls Udoka Azubuike 'questionable' for Senior Night

Agree. Give him the rest and let De Sousa get some reps in at TTU and the B12 tourney so that he's ready to contribute in the NCAA tourney, if needed.

Kansas coach Bill Self makes the case for 6 Big 12 teams in this year's NCAA Tournament

Top 68 is not "tournament worthy". You have to look at approximately how many at-large bids will be available, which is usually about 50 because you have the bottom 15-17 seeds taken by auto-bids from crappy conferences. Their best teams are sub-68, meaning that you have to be top 50 to be considered for an at-large bid. That's why Oklahoma is squarely on the bubble at 49.

The case for Kansas center Udoka Azubuike as national player of the year is building with teammates and opponents alike

We got swept by OSU last year, but then we beat them in the B12 tourney:;

Edit: Wait a minute, that was two years ago (stupid google)...

Edit2: Yeah, we swept OSU last year. Not sure what Boynton is talking about:;

KU forward Silvio De Sousa suspended indefinitely

I am relaxed. That's the point. I'm not stressed about winning the B12. It's kind of a blessing really for the streak to be over. I would rather our team focus on winning national championships rather than conference titles. Obviously preparing to win a national championship means playing hard every game, but it also means focusing on player development rather than just giving all the minutes to already developed players for best chance at winning that one game.

KU forward Silvio De Sousa suspended indefinitely

Baylor has already won at KU and TTU. I'm not really keeping my hopes up that we can catch them in the B12 race. They're the only team to soundly beat us this year. Right now I hope the team is just focused on improving as much as possible before the NCAA tourney, rather than doing everything to catch up to Baylor, which could come at the cost of player development (as has happened in many times in the past).

Player, positional versatility bring serious flexibility to 2019-20 KU basketball lineup

You have Garrett in both your starting five and second five.

Improvment of KU sophomore David McCormack includes expanded range

Our front court is going to be an absolute beast for all of our opponents to handle this year. I don't think we've had this nasty of a front court since possibly the Morris twins and T-Rob were all playing together.

Silvio De Sousa and David McCormack ready to battle for playing time

But now instead he is going to help us bring home a natty!! Much better than S16. Honestly, we really whiffed hard on recruiting high school kids this year, but I can't think of a better year for herd thinning and bringing back the best players. We lost worthless Moore and KJ, as well as Grimes who was also worthless most the time. We brought back Dotson, Dok and De Sousa. I still have mixed feelings about Dedric. I mean, on paper, he looks like a magnificent player, but from the eyeball test, he just didn't seem like an elite player (though I admit the emergence of his three point shooting was definitely huge down the stretch for us).

Moving 3-point line back 1 of 4 rule changes adopted by NCAA for 2019-20 season

Yeah but what about scenarios where your 6'1" PG got tied up with their 7' center on the rebound? That's never going to be fair if it's a jump ball, no matter the toss from the referee.

KU target Jalen Wilson ready for Kansas visit

Just re-read that and now I feel like a moron.
