Detroit Rock City: KU headed North for Sweet 16 after 75-56 win over UNLV

Advertisement

Final, KU wins, 75-56

Off to Detroit it is for the Kansas University men's basketball team, which showed up and simply took care of business against an overmatched, undersized UNLV team Saturday in Omaha, claiming a 75-56 victory.

The win lands the Jayhawks in their second straight Sweet 16, and it's the third trip to the NCAA Tournament's second weekend for KU in Bill Self's five years as head coach.

Sherron Collins again jump-started a sometimes-stagnant KU offense, scoring 10 points off the bench for KU, highlighted with an ankle-breaking, driving layup late in the game as the Jayhawks pulled away from the Rebels. UNLV could hardly muster a bucket in the second half after trailing by just five at the break.

UNLV's Wink Adams led all scorers with 25, but the Rebels struggled mightily to score from the outside, especially after sniper Joe Darger fouled out midway through the second half.

Mario Chalmers led the way for KU on offense with 17 points, while Russell Robinson scored 13 and applied sticky defense on the UNLV backcourt. Brandon Rush scored 12 for the Jayhawks before fouling out.

KU will play next Friday in Detroit's Ford Field - a facility which doubles as the home of the NFL's Detroit Lions - against the winner of tomorrow's game between No. 12 Villanova and No. 13 Siena.

3:22, second half, KU leads 67-51

Wink Adams completed his three-point play after the timeout, giving him a game-high 21 points. Mario Chalmers canceled out that point by hitting one of two free throws after trying to dunk over Matt Shaw. Wink Adams then hit two more free throws after a Brandon Rush split pair, pulling UNLV to within 12 with 4:57 to play.

Mario Chalmers then hit two free throws with KU in the double bonus, and Sherron Collins then hit two inside off a Kendall Wallace miss, pushing KU ahead 65-49 with the game then in its final four minutes, all but shutting the door and sending KU to Detroit. Darrell Arthur added to the closing ceremonies, dropping in a spinning two after two Matt Shaw free throws.

7:33, second half, KU leads 60-46

Russell Robinson went to the line and hit both of his attempts, giving him seven points, to extend KU's lead to 48-41 with just under 12 minutes to play.

Sherron Collins then worked himself into space for a pull-up jumper, which he hit, to put KU ahead by nine again. But Wink Adams again drew contact, this time earning the fourth foul on Sasha Kaun. Adams made one of two, giving him 17 points on the evening.

Russell Robinson then cashed a three to make it an 11-point game after an offensive foul call was made against Darger, giving him four fouls on the day. Darger then fouled out at the 9:33 mark. Robinson made one of two bonus free throws to give KU a 12-point edge. Corey Bailey axed it back down to 11 by splitting a pair ot the line right after that. Sherron Collins made it 56-43 with yet another diving layup.

Matt Shaw hit one of two free thorws after drawing the third foul of the game on Mario Chalmers, and KU again one-upped a split pair, this time with Russell Robinson getting inside for two off the glass. Sherron Collins then broke some ankles and left his tongue wagging out of his mouth after faking out the UNLV defense on a drive to the lane for two more points. That forced UNLV into a timeout down by 16 points with 7:40 to go.

Wink Adams hit two on a drive andd drew contact at the 7:33 mark, sending the game to a full break with KU up 60-46.

11:58, second half, KU leads 46-41

Wink Adams hit two free throws out of the break, pulling UNLV to within seven points.

Sherron Collins, though, bolted to the hoop against a dwindling shot clock on KU's next possession, after KU had called a timeout with just seconds left before a violation. He dropped in two up near the iron to put KU back up by nine at 46-37.

Adams hit two more free throws after again drawing contact on the baseline. He then went right at it again following a Darrell Arthur miss inside, getting to the line for the third time in the half. He again spun both home, giving him a game-high 16 points and pulling UNLV to within five points.

Russell Robinson returned the favor, getting to the line after a hard drive leading into a full timeout.

14:28, second half, KU leads 44-35

Brandon Rush threw a lob for Darrell Arthur right at the onset of the second half, but Wink Adams came back with two of his own off the glass inside. Rush came right back with a three from the right wing, putting KU ahead by eight at 39-31.

Joe Darger and Rene Rougeau were then called for each of their third fouls, the second of which resulted in Darrell Arthur hitting one of two free throws to put KU up by nine.

Wink Adams then hit one of two charity tries after drawing the second foul of the game on Darnell Jackson. Russell Robinson came back to boost KU's lead to 10 points with a swooping layup off a Jackson screen.

Joe Darger came back with a three in the corner, and after Russell Robinson tried to respond with a trey Darrell Arthur was called for an over-the-back foul off the miss.

UNLV turned it over, though, and Sasha Kaun hit a spinning two over Darger.

Brandon Rush then missed an open corner three off a Wink Adams three miss, and Adams came back to draw contact on Brandon Rush going to the bucket, sending the game to a full break.

Halftime, KU leads 34-29

Wink Adams dropped in two inside after a pair of Darnell Jackson free throws, leading to a late Bill Self timeout with :51.1 showing before the break.

Mario Chalmers, out of the timeout, slashed inside and dropped in a floater, sending KU ahead by six at 34-28. Curtis Terry tried to answer with a deep three, but after it missed and a pair of UNLV offensive boards, Matt Shaw was sent to the line with three seconds left. He made one of two, sending KU to the locker room with a five-point advantage at 34-29.

Mario Chalmers led KU with nine points. Darnell Jackson scored eight, with Brandon Rush chipping in six.

1:23, first half, KU leads 30-26

Darnell Jackson made one of two in a bonus trip to the line out of the timeout, but Joe Darger sliced the six-point KU lead in half with a trifecta from the right wing for his second bucket of the game. Mario Chalmers tried to match it, but aired an attempt from straight on.

Curtis Terry got to the line in the double bonus after Russell Robinson was called for his second foul, hitting both to pull the Rebels to within one at 27-26.

Mario Chalmers came back with a three from the corner, giving him seven points on the night and forcing UNLV into atimeout with 1:23 to go in the half.

3:48, first half, KU leads 26-21

Rene Rougeau hit both of his free throws out of the timeout, and Mario Chalmers saw a three rim out on the other end, giving UNLV a chance to push further ahead. Darrell Arthur came up big, though, swatting away a follow-up attempt off a Matt Shaw three miss, sending the ball back with Russell Robinson. He found Cole Aldrich, who hit a short two for his first points of the game.

Matt Shaw hit a pair of free throws on the other end to push UNLV back ahead, 21-19. Russell Robinson put KU back on top on the next possession, driving to the bucket and dropping in two while drawing contact from Joe Darger. He hit the free throw to put KU ahead 22-21. Mario Chalmers then extended the lead to three with a layup inside after the teams swapped empty possessions.

Brandon Rush connected on his third mid-range jumper of the game to put the Jayhawks ahead by five going into a TV timeout at the 3:48 mark.

7:48, first half, game tied 17-17

Joe Darger cashed a long two for UNLV out of the TV break, and the momentum built a bit more for UNLV after forcing a tie-up moments later in the paint.

With the fresh possession, Rene Rougeau hit a mid-range jumper to pull the Rebels to within two at 13-11.

Brandon Rush ended the mini-run by UNLV with a long two. Wink Adams came back with his first points of the game, tipping in his own miss inside.

Wink Adams then scored after another KU turnover in transition, slashing to the rack and tying things up at 15-15. Rush came back with another mid-range two.

Adams then got to the line after drawing a foul on Rush, and hit both to tie it up again 17-17. UNLV then secured some momentum heading into a TV timeout at the 7:48 mark, with Rougeau drawing a foul on Cole Aldrich while going up for two.

11:42, first half, KU leads 13-7

Jackson hit one of two free throws, giving the Jayhawks a four-point lead at 7-3. Darrell Arthur pushed the lead to 9-3 with a steal in the backcourt turning into atwo-handed dunk in transition.

Curtis Terry ended UNLV's long offensive drought then with a three from well beyond the arc on the left wing. Darrell Arthur answered the call on the other end with two easy ones off a feed from Brandon Rush. Terry came back by hitting one of two free throws off a foul on the interior.

The Jayhawks continued to settle in offensively, this time with Sasha Kaun flushing home a lob feed from Sherron Collins. A foul on Kaun on the offensive end after that, though, sent the game into another full break.

15:13, first half, KU leads 6-3

Darnell Jackson skied to control the opening tip for KU, and the ball was stripped shortly after from Darrell Arthur on an entry pass to the post. Curtis Terry drilled a three for UNLV on the other end off a screen, giving the Rebels an early 3-0 lead.

Jackson was then off on a short turnaround jumper on the other end after KU kept the ball off a Mario Chalmers three miss. UNLV quickly turned it back over just past midcourt. Mario Chalmers missed a three on the other end, giving UNLV a chance to extend its early lead.

Joe Darger tried a three on the other end for the Rebels but was long, with Jackson taking down the board.

UNLV stole a KU inbounds pass on the other end, but Curtis Terry was called for a foul. On the other end, after two fouls were called away from the ball on the Rebels, Jackson hit a long two for KU to open the Jayhawks' scoring. He then hit another one after a Wink Adams miss, giving KU a 4-3 lead.

Mario Chlamers made it 6-3 off a steal in the backcourt led to a soaring, one-handed dunk.

Terry then missed a three, and Darnell Jackson drew a foul on the other end after boarding a Darrell Arthur miss, sending the game to a full break at the 15:13 mark.

Pregame

One thing is for certain in the final NCAA Tournament game that will be played in Omaha Saturday - someone's making their second straight trip to the Sweet Sixteen.

That's what's on the line for Kansas University and Nevada-Las Vegas in the Qwest Center. The Jayhawks (32-3) tonight take on the Rebels (27-7) with a trip to Detroit, Mich., for next weekend's regional action on the line.

KU got here with a relatively easy win over No. 16 Portland State Thursday, 85-61. The Jayhawks got out early and never looked back in that one, picking up where they had left off the previous weekend in ousting Texas for a Big 12 Tournament title in Kansas City. As for UNLV, it knocked off No. 9 Kent State, 71-58, in Thursday's second game, using stifling perimeter defense to hold the Flashes to 10 points in the first half.

The Kansas connections are plentiful between these two teams. UNLV is coached by former Kansas State head coach and point guard Lon Kruger. Most of his staff hails from the state of Kansas, too, including Steve Henson, whose final collegiate game was almost 20 years ago to the day against Kansas in the Elite Eight - a Jayhawk win on the road to the 1988 national title.

KU will be wearing its home whites, with UNLV in its road reds.

Yeh, that was what I read in the green room report. Stewart was back at the motel suffering from step throat.

KGphoto 14 years, 3 months ago

Wow! Only 9,000 responses by three guys, circle yanking. Get a job boys.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

3+ minute scoring drought to open the game isn't exactly what I expected.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Now that's more like it! 6 quick pts!

lance1jhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

No kidding NH_J Darnell looks strong. I think the guys will settle down and start to take over.

beakemhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

It's an early morning here in Budapest, Hungary... but never to early to listen to the Hawks crush the Rebels... BEAK 'EM

14 years, 3 months ago

This is looking a little like our Big 12 Tournament game against Nebraska.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

either the mmod feed had a quick hiccup or that shot by DA looked like a total brick off the backboard from close range. seems like we should be able to own the low post considering height advantedge.

justanotherfan 14 years, 3 months ago

Tough call on Mario there...

This is gonna be an ugly, grind it out kind of game. Rush will be able to get any shot he wants, though. He needs to attack the front of the rim.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

justanotherfan - I agree about the slow grind-it-out tempo so far. I hope we can get into some more transition buckets from owning the defensive boards. There's no way they should have many second shots based on their height.

flipborder02 14 years, 3 months ago

I think we need to send them to the free throw line about 20 more times.

mtjayhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

This is pathetic...CBS sucks!!!

1 seed in the country in a tight game and I can't watch because they'd rather show Stanford.

A MMOD is so overloaded can't get it there either.

RIDICULOUS!!!

14 years, 3 months ago

Bummer, mtjayhawk. Do you at least have an audio feed? Try this one if not:

http://www.lazer.com/

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

mtjayhawk....try ncaa website, cbs sports on demand, or espn.

lance1jhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

I think we all just may have to start drinking... it worked for the BIGXII games afterall.

mtjayhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Got the audio from CBS...but video is so froze up...and I've got a high speed cable modem!!!

I think there are so many people wanting to watch the KU game around the country and CBS isn't putting on what people want.

14 years, 3 months ago

lance, do you have the wherewithall to drink for two this evening?

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

Yea, stuck with ND and WST down here in "da bayou".

lance1jhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

tx- absolfrigginlutely!!!! Its for the TEAM!

14 years, 3 months ago

lance - you are a scholar and a gentleman! I am going to dinner right after the game and I am my DD.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

I'll cracking a beer for "y'all" txrockchalk!

lance...glad to see you survived the Power and Light district marathon. Did you buy Ryan Greene a Miller light?

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

That was a pathetic half!!!! Hope Bill is chewing the guys' ears off in the locker room. We should be blowing these chumps out!!!!

landon_2003 14 years, 3 months ago

i think we need to throw it into the post every trip down the floor. arthur should be able to get 20 pts. easy. why screen and roll all the time. pound it inside damn it

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

It don't make no sense. We get ND/WST down here with WST blowing out ND where Marq/Stan is a 1 pt game. CBS definitely bites the big one.

Chicago_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

We're shooting 54% to 29%, neither team can hit a 3, but they've attempted and made 5 more FTs. Strange half. We need a spurt at the opening of the 2nd...I am in Chicago watching WSU blow out ND. CBS won't even cut over during a TO or stoppage.

14 years, 3 months ago

I agree with pounding it down inside. We could score easy points and get them in foul trouble.

lance1jhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

NH_JHawk- Lokked high and low for Ryan (figured I would find him low) but to no avail. I only saw him at the games typing and such. Did anyone else see Curtis Shaw kickout Stanfords coach. Classic

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

I am worried about this second half. We need to quit dribbling into the lane and kicking it out to the 3 point line. Their guards are just waiting for us out there. I wish Bill Self would try and speed this game up a little. I don't like the pace and Lon Kruger is dictating this game right now. Russell Robinson looks scared out there!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

anyone else furious with the refs????? why can't they just LET THEM PLAY!!!! i hate it when they call ticky tacky fouls and we have NOT committed all of those.......... we could be way ahead if we weren't putting unlv at the line!! this is driving me crazy!!!!!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Why don't you people pay for the NCAA package. It's $62 dollars through Direc TV. That sounds worth it to me!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Lovemyhawks: I'm not worried about the fouls at all. It's been called right the whole game. KU opened the game with a 6-1 foul advantage. The refs have done a good job. Bill Self needs to make some adjustments because Kruger is just sitting on the kick out to the 3 point line.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

BIG HALF!!!!!! I hope we come out and play with some passion!!! Arthur not diving for loose balls is ticking me off. We're getting beat to the loose balls!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i just really think they are calling WAY too close and calling some VERY unnecessarily......... ok, i'll chill but i'm NOT enjoying this at all right now and sure hope it improves quickly after halftime!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

I'm not enjoying this at all either. Every time we get up 6 we relax. We are not playing like this could potentially be our last game.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Good start, but their guards are just camping out on us beyornd the arc.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Joe Darger! We're going to let Joe Darger beat us! Unreal we just leave him open.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i want MORE intensity..... this is simply wearing me out completely!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

2 fastbreaks: A turnover by Sherron and a corner 3 that barely hit the rim. GOOD EXECUTION! WE ARE PLAYING RETARDED! WE ARE PLAYING NOT TO LOSE RATHER THAN PLAYING TO WIN!!!!!!!!

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

We're definitely not playing as loose as we normally would.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Wink Adams is 6 feet tall. Why are we fouling him in the paint?

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

We're running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off!!!! My God!!!!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i can't relax, i can't enjoy...... can't they make a big run or something and help us out?? how bout a quick 10-0 run after the timeout??

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

If our bigs in the paint would just stand straight up and not swat at Wink, he'll likely just miss the shot.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

I don't understand it either. I can't believe the guys would actually accept this potentially as their last game. They will regret this the rest of their lives.

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

Sheesh....like 5 guys that don't have a clue what they're out there for. Nobody has their head in the game. Maybe time for 5 new heads.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Wink? where'd he go? oh, he got lost again in the paint.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

good for sherron...... let's see more!!!!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i kinda think the refs hate ku but guess i was outnumbered.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

hey refs,........ how about a CHARGE???????

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

I hate the fact we have to depend on Arthur! Arthur will not lead this team!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

KU keeps this game close and the refs will dictate the end of the game!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

What adjustments has Bill Self made?????? Anyone see a similarity in this game to other games. Sure does look familar to me!!!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Inferior team sticking around???? I'm scared as hell!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i personally think the refs have dictated the entire game so far and i DO NOT LIKE what i'm seeing!!!!

flipborder02 14 years, 3 months ago

get off your knees refs your blowing the game.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

The only thing I'm enjoying is seeing the redhead on KU's cheer squad. WOW!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Let's GO! We need to get this lead up to 12!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

Need to start making some shots. Defense will only get us so far...

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

Less than a minute in other 2 games so maybe CBS will switch to KU game soon.

Jim Dickerson 14 years, 3 months ago

If a UNC game was called this close, Hansbro would foul out in about 60 seconds

Chicago_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Foul trouble is becoming a serious factor. Yikes.

14 years, 3 months ago

kushaw - that's my favorite one too :o)

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

We are making Wink Adams look like an NBA all-star. ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGG!

bp_josh 14 years, 3 months ago

someone take that ref's whistle, now he's just showboating

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

sorry brooksmd....OT in the Stanford/Marquette game. CBS is probably stuck there.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Damn Arthur!!! God he's playing like a panzy!

jayhawker_97 14 years, 3 months ago

what an ugly game.. stupid refs..!!! luckily we had some good baskets, not like UNLV - 50% or more from FT!!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

darger is gone...... take advantage!!! let's go hawks!!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Where's the redhead on the KU cheer squad? I need to smile right now!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

Starting to feel better. Need to keep making some shots and get this thing going.

14 years, 3 months ago

I'm stuck with the Stanford / Marquette game here in Dallas now. Dang!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Yes Sherron! I'm glad we have him on our team!

rockchalkAZ 14 years, 3 months ago

i am super pissed right now. i do not care about stanford marquette. thanks cbs

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Game Reset:

1st half: foul foul foul foul

2nd half: foul foul foul foul

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Yes Yes Yes Yes! Sherron! You are the man! Our energizer bunny! Aruthur needs to take some notes from Sherron!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

how bout russ AND sherron!!!!!! take over...... let's go!!!!!!!! i'm feeling better!!!! jam it to them!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Wink Adams is going to be a Top 5 NBA Draft Pick!!!!!!!!

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

kushaw - lol.....maybe if the entire game was shot at the line.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i AM disappointed in arthur today for sure........ we've got RR and Collins this time.......... they are in control now!!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

I'm not the internet, it keeps freezing so this is painful. What's up with our rebounding today?

Sherron is MVP.

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

txrockchalk....you'd think in Big 12 country you'd see a Big 12 team play. No sense at all.

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

OK...I hope we are getting our one sloppy game out of the way.

Chicago_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

I'm getting a 30 second at least delay on the MMOD feed. loosely following Stan/Marq as well - the score on the screen updates before my feed! Aaargh!

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

txrockchalk...must be UT execs at the TV stations paying back all the Jayhawks in TX.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

UNLV has 11 field goals! Are you kidding me? What a joke?

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Damn that would have been sweet! That a boy Mario! Take it with Authority!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

did you hear that? UNLV only has 11 FG in the whole game!!!! FT ARE definitely the story for them!!!!

stanford is going to win. wow.... what a game.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Texas will take care of Stanford in the next round after they pummel Miami.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

How come you guys don't pay for the package? It's 62 dollars! It's definitely worth it!

Chicago_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Fouls so far: KU 23, UNLV 18. Ridiculous.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Hey guys, guess what? UNLV is at the Free Throw line!

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Stoke up the ROCK CHALK chant. UNLV is goin' home!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

unlv has LIVED at the line...... otherwise a BLOWOUT!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Anyone else relieved? What a stressful game!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

Kevin Harlan is about the best announcer around.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Free throw shooting:

UNLV: 25-32 (78%) KU: 12-18 (66%)

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i'm sure glad THIS one is over...... not sure i can make it through 4 more of these...... but you can be sure i will try...... hope my hawks are there with me!! who do you pick for next round??

Chicago_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

I'm unimpressed with the execution. Obviously, the refs called a ridiculous game, but we need better overall hunger (we've all said that several times this year). I was hoping tourney games would cause the necessary urgency for 40 minutes each game, but apparently not.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

I got NOVA! I actually want NOVA. I want to beat 2 Big East schools back to back to get to the Final Four!

lance1jhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

That was ALL BALL!!! Good game Brandon enjoy the rest and get ready for the next round of games.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

RE: lack of offensive effort and execution

Credit UNLV's defense. Remember, they held Kent State to the LOWEST point total (10) for a half in the history of this tournament.

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Why can't we treat these games like it's TEXAS?

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

OUCH! that hurt just watching it. I hope Mario is alright.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

nova is my guess too....... was EXPECTING clemson but was glad to see the upset!!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

I figured there would be more posters on here today while watching the game?

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Was definitely impressed with UNLV. They came out ready to play, but ran out fo gas!

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i'm with you kushaw........i wanted 6 games in the tourney when we looked like we were playing texas!!!! hope we can find that team again soon....

3 for chalmers.... guess he's ok!!! :)

brooksmd 14 years, 3 months ago

Are you kidding me? They just went to MSU/Pitt.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

75-56 does not SOUND like a stressful game but it definitely was one............ let's find that intensity before the next one!!!

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

brooksmd...NO love from CBS. you should definitely find a sports bar for the sweet 16.

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

Man, that was not a very fun game to watch. Hope the REAL 'hawks show up for the next 4.

jayhawkinATL 14 years, 3 months ago

I think six days off is going to help us out a lot. I do think that we're still recovering fatigue-wise from the UT battle.

lovemyhawks 14 years, 3 months ago

i'm with you jayhawkinati..... they've got to make these a bit easier on their fans!!!! that was absolutely EXHAUSTING!!

yates33333 14 years, 3 months ago

CBS is a perfect match for the NCAA. Neither does a very good job and mess up fan enjoyment of the game. He's right, find a sports' bar.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Love the headline: Detroit Rock City!

"get up. everybody's gonna move their feet. get down. everybody's gonna leave their seat. You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City!"

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!!!

Kyle Crenshaw 14 years, 3 months ago

well like weve seen in years past, we will always have games that are disgusting to watch like this one... remember so. illinois last year? ugh... that game drove me nuts!

Chris Shaw 14 years, 3 months ago

Have you guys heard of paying 62 dollars and getting 48 games in 4 days? That comes out to $1.25 per game. Send me your address and I'll write you a check for 62 dollars so you guys can stop complaining about CBS!

I think the game was ugly due to the officiating. Not saying it favored either team, it was just poorly done. Has Rush ever fouled out of a game at the college level? And one would think that with today's technology and nearly everyone owning a ginormous HD/SD/digital/wipemy@$$ TV they could go to split screen or picture in picture rather than total cut aways.

This is the cause of the crappy game: UNLV made 8 more FTs (27 of 34) than we even shot. Hell, Wink was 15-17 from the line!!!!

kushaw...include the cost of sat subscription also.

6 Sweet sixteens in the last eight years awesome! I would trade them all for a National Championship this year! For all these guys have been through with tragedy, it would just be a nice finish for a wonderful group of guys.

Luckily, here in the ATL...the local CBS station added two more channels to the Comcast lineup just for the first weekend of the tournament. They've done it for the past 4 years now.

way too many fouls, way too many free throws...... i thought it was ridiculous!!

Directv is not the answer, In houston the local cbs affiliate took the Kansas feed, so the feed from Omaha is blacked out. So when they go to another game for the rest of the country you are blocked from seeing the game you paid for on Directv. They only unblocked todays game when there were about 5 minutes left. On Thursday it was never unblocked. I am canceling my Subscription for next year. I will watch it online next year and save the money. Though the quality is low at least I can watch the game I want to watch. Rock Chalk Jayhawk

Why do you keep assuming everyone here has DirecTV? Also, I don't see why all the complaining about MMOD. It has worked nearly flawlessly for me the whole weekend. I think some people need to get a new internet connection.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Let's go aTm and Turg! Take UCLA down.

It would be such a shame if we didn't get another look at those fine aTm cheerleaders in the velour pants.

DCSven 14 years, 3 months ago

Wow ... a 19 point win in which we trailed only a once, maybe twice, and all the comments above sound like Duke fans, who lost. Great win, hard fought, and proving once again that we have the coach and players that can figure out any 40 minutes, no matter what gets thrown at them. See you all in San Antonio! ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

KUSHAW-NOT EVERYBODY HAS DIRECTTV. I HAVE VERIZON FIOS and they don't have a package. I'm stuck with CBS and they SUCK IT!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

What a game!! What a team!! We didn't choke but won with good defense even though our 3's were off, that's a great sign. We need to be hot when it counts in one of the next two games. We get another week of March Madness!

Rooting for Turgeon and the Aggies now. Go Big 12!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

ATTENTION ALL JAYHAWKS: Are there any Hawk fans in Honolulu? There's no alumni group here but there's got to be some KU fans.

smitty33 14 years, 3 months ago

Great intensity and focus Hawks!! We can win even in a poor shooting outing, exactly what we need.

Fantastic Defense, UNLV didn't have a chance at a shot in the second half. I love how we're deep enough so it's rare that foul troubles cause us problems.

I'm off to Detroit from Colorado on Friday!!!!!! Too bad KSU sucked it up so bad, would have been fun to play them. I think Wisconsin will advance to the Elite 8. KSU could have easily of beat them if they played ANYWHERE close to their potential. Too bad Wildcat fans, back to the cellar.

CBS should branch into cable channels, much like NBC and FOX (MSNBC, FoxNews, etc.). All that would be necessary is for customers to switch with their remotes. Forget paying extra money at tourney time, you could get it with a cable or satellite subscription. Besides, its much easier than going through the hassel of buying additional programming or waiting in line for computer access only to have the stream perpetually delayed and frequently broken.

One channel for so many games??? Are you serious?

Incidentally, Im rooting for Georgetown to win. Otherwise, playing Wisconsin in the Elite 8 is basically a home-court game for the Badgers.

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

good thing I make a mean margarita or I might have had a stroke watching that ugly game. Let's all get some rest and get ready for the Hawks to win all! RCJH champioship in 08!!!!!!!!!

Mike Johns 14 years, 3 months ago

jhawkfan42 - are you kidding us? the game was never in jeopardy... easy win

Rockonku 14 years, 3 months ago

Way to go hawks and no thanks to the officals... you could see Bill was mad and not at his team. It did get a little better after he said something to them but it still wasn't good.
Sure would like to see Texas A & M take UCLA down!!!

fansincewilt 14 years, 3 months ago

Does anyone know how many time Rush has fouled out. I think this might be his first time this year.

lance1jhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Loving aTm right now!! Stick it to the pac 10!

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

Turgeon and company look awesome against UCLA, they are holding their own and representing the Big 12 well. It's asking a lot for them to win but they've certainly made a respectable showing.

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Man I want USUCKIT to go down! come on aggies stick it to them or GIG EM!!!!

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Did he call bank of the top of the backboard! AWSOME!

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

I meant off the backboard,margaritas must be getting to me.

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Come on Aggies keep your composure and you can win this one which would be some great props for the big12

lisabeth2002 14 years, 3 months ago

anybody know any word on Rodrick Stewart?

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Aggies starting to Choke, man I hate ucla

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

It must be nice to always get to play all your games right in your backyard like ucla and N Carolina. The fans are going to lift ucla to the next round.

Lance Hobson 14 years, 3 months ago

A&M is not choking, they are over-achieving just keeping it this close. It's frustrating to see, because UCLA does this to everyone. They have more luck than any team in the tourney. This is also a road game for A&M, since UCLA always gets home court during the tourney. How do we get our AD on the selection committee??

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Over 6 minutes without a field goal are you friggen kidding me! come on A&M pull your heads out!

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Aggie cheerleaders in those pants. MMMMMMMMMMMm drool

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Where's the foul on KLove? Oh...I forgot they dont call fouls on him (or Psycho T).

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

ucla is so ficken LUCKY their uniforms should have a 4 leaf clover on them

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

make that 5 points in last 9:30. ugh...

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

first basket in over 8 minutes! It's time for usuckit's luck to finally run out

rcaltrider 14 years, 3 months ago

UCLA = most boring team in the country.

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

rcaltrider - I agree. Can you imagine a UCLA vs. any Big 10 team? Final Score 40-38.

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Any chance A&M hits a 3 to win it at the buzzer?

NH_JHawk 14 years, 3 months ago

Turgeon has certainly proved himself to be an excellent coach taking Wichita St. to the Sweet 16 back in 06.

Tough loss for aTm tonight but they represented the Big XII very well. Way to go Aggies!

Dan Harris 14 years, 3 months ago

Tivo'd the last shot and Sloan was hacked on the wrist,of course refs will never call that on UCLA! Luckiest damn team in america! I want usuckit now!!!!

iowajayhawk 14 years, 3 months ago

lissabeth2002, I second the question. What's up with Rodrick Stewart? Why hasn't he played at all? Tonight KU played an 8 man rotation, plus 4 seldom-used players saw minutes, but no Stewart. Anyone know the answer?

DerekR25 14 years, 3 months ago

I just LOVED how the zebras stood there with their whistles hanging out of their open mouthes just watching Love & Co. grope every aTm big man. I don't know how many fouls were just overlooked for UCLA. Love got to a couple of the blocks clean, but there were so many offensive rebounds that Davis or Jordan came up with while getting hacked that allowed Love to get to them. Terrible, that's at least 3 games that UCLA has been given.

smitty33 14 years, 3 months ago

JhawkDan, I watched that last shot in slow motion on my DVR. Sloan was hacked on BOTH wrists that knocked him sideways in the air. NO ONE touched the ball. Too bad the SUCKY CBC crew didn't have a better angle than from behind. Too bad UCLA has gotten every freakin call this year. I'm so sick of Digger talking up the Pac10... PUKE. That said, Collison is awesome. I just wish they would hurry up and lose. Too bad they get Xavier as their toughest team in the bracket in Arizona.

Someone posted somewhere that Roderick Stewart has Strep Throat.
