In the high-stakes world of Big 12 basketball, turnovers and 3-pointers are extremely valuable currency in every gymnasium and arena on the five-state conference map.

It's been a while since KU freshman Marcus Garrett delivered the kind of stat line he put up Saturday, during fifth-ranked Kansas' 79-68 victory over Texas A&M in the Big 12/SEC Challenge at Allen Fieldhouse. By Matt Tait
Defending without fouling was among the many things Texas A & M did well in the second half of a game it lost to Kansas in Allen Fieldhouse, 79-68, Saturday. As a result, Kansas didn’t reach the bonus until 48 seconds remained, so the Aggies didn’t employ the Hack-A-Udoka strategy. By Tom Keegan
Speed beats size. Speed beats size. Speed beats size. That was the message drilled into the heads of the Kansas men's basketball players this week in anticipation of Saturday's showdown with a throwback-big Texas A & M team at Allen Fieldhouse.

Now that the free throw misses heard 'round the world are a thing of the past — you know, like 16 hours old now — it's worth exploring where the Kansas basketball team and big man Udoka Azubuike go from here. By Matt Tait
With 7-foot center Udoka Azubuike sitting for all but four minutes of the first half because of early foul trouble, sophomore sub Mitch Lightfoot did his best to hold down the fort down low. In 14 first-half minutes, Lightfoot recorded six points, four rebounds, two blocks — one on Oklahoma phenom Trae Young — and an assist on 3-of-5 shooting to help keep the Jayhawks close at halftime. By Matt Tait
A season-long concern that had not yet fully hurt the Kansas basketball team did the Jayhawks in on Tuesday night, when 12th-ranked Oklahoma used an intentional-foul strategy on KU big man Udoka Azubuike during the game's final four minutes to knock off No. 5 Kansas, 85-80, at Lloyd Noble Center. By Matt Tait
Sometimes, it takes the great ones longer than others to fully trust less talented teammates. It took Michael Jordan’s fourth NBA coach, Phil Jackson, to convince the superstar that the road to championships is one traveled by teams, not individuals. By Tom Keegan
The hack-a-Udoka-Azubuike strategy implemented by Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger and his Sooners in the final minutes of Tuesday night’s game against Kansas worked like a charm in an 85-80 victory for OU at Lloyd Noble Center. The crunch-time shift away from the norm took away from the Jayhawks’ flow and productivity on the offensive end of the floor, as OU turned a three-point hole into a five-point win. By Benton Smith

“Coach's motto, every time the game gets close, is players make plays, coaches don't win games,” Malik Newman said. On Saturday evening at Allen Fieldhouse, the 10th-ranked Jayhawks saw a heck of a player make all kinds of plays down the stretch to pull out yet another too-close-for-comfort Big 12 victory, 70-67, that Kansas nearly lost control of down the stretch.

The starters were announced on TNT’s NBA Tip-Off show.

By Matt Tait

Two different Kansas basketball teams took the floor at WVU Coliseum for a Big Monday thriller won by Kansas, 71-66, on a furious late comeback from a 16-point deficit.

Quick. Think back to Tuesday night’s 83-78 Kansas basketball victory and count up all of the times you saw Bill Self’s Jayhawks having fun on the floor. Now think back to how many times you saw those kinds of images in the handful of games that came before Tuesday. See the difference? By Matt Tait
The signature moment in Malik Newman’s Kansas coming out party on Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse — Italy be damned — featured one big time play on both ends of the floor from a player the KU basketball team desperately needed to get going. With 2:34 to play in a two-point game that felt even tighter than that, Newman stayed down in his stance, watched Iowa State’s Donovan Jackson try to dribble into a go-ahead 3-pointer and then elevated to block the shot. No 3-point winner for Jackson this year. By Matt Tait

Mitch Lightfoot doesn’t always look as if he belongs playing minutes that matter for perennial national college basketball powerhouse Kansas. Against bigger bodies he sometimes looks too small, too weak. Too often he has the look of a playing-out-of-position backup center. And then there was Saturday night in Schollmaier Arena. By Tom Keegan
Kansas coach Bill Self has been begging his team to be tougher and more competitive all season. Saturday night at TCU’s Schollmaier Arena, Self got his wish. And right away. By Matt Tait

It took third-year Kansas women’s basketball coach Brandon Schneider 27 tries to win his first regular-season Big 12 game. It took him three tries to win two of them this season. That’s what progress looks like.
Entering January’s first weekend, the Big 12 standings may appear a little out of the ordinary for members of the Kansas men’s basketball team. As one would expect, 15th-year KU coach Bill Self has some ideas about what his players must do to extend the program’s run of Big 12 dominance and set a new NCAA record. “I think we need to quit talking about winning the league," Self said.

The Kansas women's basketball team matched its Big 12 win total from last season after a 60-47 victory over Texas Tech on Wednesday at United Supermarkets Arena.
Bill Self's the same coach he was in leading KU to consecutive conference title Nos. 1 through 13, but he has a more difficult job this time because his general manager hasn’t supplied him with as balanced and deep a roster as usual. In college sports, of course, the general manager is the coach.
Less than an hour after KU's 21-point victory over Stanford in Sacramento just before Christmas, Kansas coach Bill Self offered a brutally honest but hopeful assessment of where his team stood entering conference play. Two games and 12 days later, many of the same things Self was concerned about then appear to be legitimate problems for this Kansas team, which fell to No. 18 Texas Tech, 85-73 on Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse and dropped to 1-1 in Big 12 play for the first time since the 2005-06 season. By Matt Tait
In 43 seconds midway through the second half Tuesday night, a 13-point Kansas deficit withered to six points. Pandemonium in the stands. Panic for the visitors was certain to follow. Surely, Kansas was in the midst of one of its wild second-half comebacks. Guess again. By Tom Keegan

No one on the Kansas basketball team thought winning in the Big 12 would be easy this season, and Texas Tech made sure to remind the Jayhawks of that Tuesday night, in KU’s conference home opener. The No. 18-ranked Red Raiders did more than give the No. 10 Jayhawks a battle, the men in black from Lubbock, Texas, out-worked KU at Allen Fieldhouse to earn a 85-73 victory and never even trailed.

About a decade ago, a prominent ESPN college football announcer ran into then-KU football coach Mark Mangino. “Coach, I think you did a heck of a job. You’ve got a great team,” Mangino related of the interaction. “You can’t beat Virginia Tech.” Such an anecdote rings comical now, with the 10-year anniversary of the Jayhawks’ Jan. 3, 2008 Orange Bowl victory coming up on Wednesday. At the time, though, Mangino and his Jayhawks simply welcomed the doubters. By Benton Smith
Nothing shy of assigning a No. 1 ranking to UCF and recognizing it as co-national champion does justice to this season’s best story in college football. The Knights ought not be ranked second to anyone.
Kansas wide receiver Evan Fairs came out of Fulshear High in Foster, Texas, with a two-star rating from Rivals. Halfway into his KU career, Fairs shapes up as the second-brightest potential star among the 14 high school players in KU’s recruiting Class of 2016, ranking behind only running back Khalil Herbert, a fellow two-star prospect.
