Fairly dominant day for former Jayhawks... Nice! And look at ol' Cole Aldrich, he followed his then career best game yesterday with 13 and 13 with an even better 13 and 16, plus 5 blocks. Morris twins combine for 37 and McLemore drops 31, not to mention Withey adding 5 blocks in 20 mins... I'm filled with lots of Jayhawk pride today!

I thought the same thing when I saw that Rich. Awesoemd ay all around for Jayhawks. Only two that lost that actually played were Ben and Captain Kirk. And Ben gets a pass because he lost to the twins

Aldrich had the go-ahead bucket with a minute left on a put-back dunk. And it looks like Withey and Aldrich both started... Withey had the best +/- on the day for the Pelicans.
