Is Mario Chalmers angling for a reunion with LeBron James in Orlando?

not enough words to describe how many ways I disagree.

Reflecting back on some memorable misses in Kansas basketball history

I was trying to think of a memorable miss in the VCU game in 2011. I remember a point in the 2nd half when Kansas cut the lead to 2 points and I kept expecting KU to take control of the game, but it didn't happen.

Without going back and watching, there is no singular miss that I recall... only the cumulative frustration of a team that seemingly couldn't score.

I definitely was thinking about the free throws, but I really felt that the two potentially game tying three pointers with time winding down really were more memorable because either one of them likely would have directly forced overtime.

Reflecting back on some memorable misses in Kansas basketball history

I understand that the boundary condition of the top 5 misses was that they occurred while you were covering KU basketball.

But since we're picking at old scabs here there are many that stand out from KU's national championship loss to Syracuse in 2003.

Hinrich had a wide open look to tie it with about 15 seconds left from straight on and about 25' deep, and his shot was just a hair long. Then Mike Lee of course had a last chance attempt to tie the game that looked to be a wide open look from the left side, and Hakim Warrick flew in to block it as time was expiring.

KU reaches $2.55 million settlement with former football coach David Beaty

The $2.55MM settlement looks like an obvious L for KU. One would have to think that this university is not so inept that it didn't get at least something out of this negotiation.

It does look like KU did enough math to determine that they were at a break even point and they weren't willing to take the risk of continuing the legal battle with Mr. Beatty.

Just more evidence that college athletics is an ugly business.

Breaking down how new KU commitment Zach Clemence fits at Kansas

I would like to see some film on Zach from Sunrise this past season. Not sure how old those highlights are from his Texas team, but based on those videos he definitely will be in for a shock to the system when he's playing against bigger and better athletes in college.

It's good to get his recruitment out of the way so that he can really focus on his body and his game this year.

16 ppp, now that's better than Steph Curry efficiency.

There's always room in the game for a player who shoots 70% from the field and can almost single-handedly force an opposing team to shoot jump shots

Kansas basketball lands commitment from 4-star forward Zach Clemence

this kid is ranked #31 in his class. There's probably only a handful at most of PFs higher ranked than him in the Sr. class. This kid appears to have the size, skill, and athleticism to be in the NBA after a strong 2 or 3 years at KU.

Sounds like a perfect pick up to me.

Let's hope that he sticks to his commitment after the NCAA decides to dole out discipline.

Portion of NCAA report indicates a third KU basketball player was connected to improper payments

The NCAA suspended Diallo for FIVE GAMES over $165 given to him by his LEGAL GUARDIAN?

yeah right. Nobody believes this garbage. The NCAA investigated Diallo and cleared him to play. Bill Self and KU clearly have a history of not playing a player until he has been cleared by the NCAA.
