Tom Keegan: Devonte' Graham makes his case for best player in Big 12 against Oklahoma

This team not only played with energy they played with chemistry. And though Graham directed it all it truly was a team effort. Both halves were active. Though this may not be KU's most talented team one thing is for sure, they are playing with the heart of the some of KU's best! Rock Chalk

Game day Breakdown: No. 8 KU basketball vs. Oklahoma

Hoping that if Trae Young hit the wall he sits at it one more game. I wouldn't bet on it tonight though. Everyone seems to find their mojo when playing KU. We just need to play with the energy we had against WVU for both halves. Lattin can't handle Dok so we need to feed the big guy and hope he stays out of foul trouble. Vick showed a lot of emotion at the end of the WVU game so hopefully he's still on an upswing. If Newman can come out as aggressive as he ends games he'll be hard to stop. Svi, well he just needs to find his shot, or get open for em. Graham has to do what Graham's been doing, but hopefully with a couple more 3's falling for him. I think we can win this game. I don't think it will be easy.

Tom Keegan: Sherron Collins not yet ready to give up on basketball

You never know man. My brother was a great boxer as a kid. At 38 years old he dropped almost 60lbs and got back in the ring. Went undefeated for 4 fights, 2 draws and 1 loss. At the age of 37 (6 yrs ago) I got back into music, landed an independent record deal and my first album reached #62 on the iTunes charts in 2012. In 2016 my album 'The Lottery' hit #8 on those same charts. This year I was invited to the Grammys. My point is never give up. It all comes down to how bad you want it.

Kansas City guard Ochai Agbaji to reveal college pick Thursday afternoon

I wonder if coach is just seeing long term here for the program. Someone he can develop like Mason & Graham, which I'm sure was mentioned on more than one occasion in the recruitment of Agbaji. How could that not be impressive to an unranked local kid?

Regarding next years team, I think Dok is back. Though he's getting better I can't see him leaving next year. Same with Malik. Vick is hard to say. It would be really good to have all those guys back as we'll have some really good veterans next year to lead the new crop. Because even though The Lawsons and Moore are practicing this year they haven't played for KU in game time so we'll need experience in Self's system leading the way. I'm excited for next year but there will be growing pains. I'm SUPER excited for 2 years down when all these guys mature. Yes some will leave but a majority won't! RCJH

Bill Self used to look ahead at the Big 12 schedule; not any longer

to me it looks like tech has the "easiest" of the next 4 conference games. Lookin forward to UK vs WVU though!

Big win at WVU puts Jayhawks back in driver's seat, but doubters weren't crazy

I'm in the camp we will lose one more at home this year. The league is too good however we really seem to be getting better each game and some of the other front runners may have peaked already? TCU for instance is back to being a lower tier team, albeit a good one. They also just lost Jaylen Fisher for a while due to an injury. I'm not quite sure Texas Tech is gonna get that much better. Don't get me wrong they ARE good. We however have a new dynamic even just adding De Sousa. Now I don't mean he's gonna go in and get 15 points, 3 blocks and 7 rebounds. No, I mean we have a different look that we can throw at people now. In two weeks time we'll have already gotten almost 5-6 games with him so he'll provide much more meaningful minutes that we've seen thus far. We lost the rebound battle big time to Tech. But I think as a team we've been more aggressive since. Add another big and we've got a good shot. Oklahoma still remains a threat as long as they have Trae Young. We've seen via WVU and KSU that tight, active defense can do wonders. But we've also seen, if you let up for 1 second that kid will get you. I may get booed here but if K-State plays the way they did against OU and even us for the most part, they could "become" a threat. They are playing with a chip on their shoulder. All this said, what do I know? Nothing really. Just my opinion right or wrong. Rock Chalk

'It's just not normal': Jayhawks slip at Allen Fieldhouse again, lose to Texas Tech

Cunliffe is as quick and athletic as advertised. He has a quick second jump and I think would have had more rebounds if he'd played longer. He knew what his role is. He is energy.

'It's just not normal': Jayhawks slip at Allen Fieldhouse again, lose to Texas Tech

I agree that we did make some good adjustments. Just too little too late.
We were careless with the ball as well. Not to mention we got blitzed on rebounds. The problem is that that "perfect storm" has happened twice in AFH within a few weeks.
