Jayhawks rolled by Trojans in 85-51 defeat during Round 2 of NCAA Tournament

This team was similar to the 2009 team. The 2008 team won it all and then all but two of the players that played turned pro. If last year's team would've won it all, this year's team would've been given a lot more slack. One thing is for sure with Self's teams, need a PG that can score and more importantly get to the hole to open up the floor. Need a rim protector that allows the other players to not need to leave their man to help. Had both of those last year and we had a great chance.

Notebook: Jayhawks never led during 91-79 road loss to Mountaineers

When's the last time KU played on the first day/evening of a conference tourney?

Brent Dearmon leaving KU football to become O.C. at MTSU

What's that do to the recruiting class that Dearmon brought in? Do we feel like we're in a better place than 3 yrs ago?

'We didn't deserve to win': No. 6 Jayhawks disappointed following loss at Oklahoma State

This is a 12-6 conference team. Missing two things. A rim protector and a combo PG. Self has always had those on his best teams. Some people were outraged when there was talk of being a 4th place team back in the spring. Looks about right to me.

Senior night festivities driving KU center Udoka Azubuike to push to play vs. TCU

Is this the "walk in the park" game everyone thought Kstate was going to be? I remember the "what's more likely" poll of 35 point win or 5 point win. Don't forget how Dok completely dominated TCU in a fairly close game earlier this year. Need a win tonite and then we can manage minutes against Tech.

Benton Smith: Mondays more minor than 'big' for Jayhawks this season

Every other P5 conference has a choice. BIG/PAC 12/SEC/ACC channel/network. Big 12 sold out to the Whorns' LHN.

Ochai Agbaji follows rare scoreless outing with 'aggressive' offensive approach

He's young, really young as far as number of years he has played basketball. Another year and Abaji will be a stud. As far as lobs designed for him, the play is being run but we're not throwing the lob. Watch the out of bounds play against Okie Lite. #30 streaks down the middle unguarded but we throw the typical inbounds to Dok. I'm sure that is frustrating to Coach.

No. 3 Kansas wins battle of big men with 69-58 victory over Texas

Udoka barked at Self when coach pulled him from the game a second time because he could match up with #22 from Tech. That's why he didn't start.

KU junior Marcus Garrett keeps tracking toward first career triple-double

Everyone talks about "if he was a better shooter" scenarios but my guess is he wouldn't be as good a defender, ball handler, rebounder, and passer if he could shoot well. I luv the way Marcus plays.

Quick recap: No. 3 Kansas rolls to easy win over Kansas State, but Sunflower Showdown ends in brawl

So let Mitch finish career playing half the conference games? If it was your senior season, would you go out like this? Everyone's yelling for a 4 guard offense. Perfect opportunity for it. Silvio probably won't suit up for 3 games minimum, and I could see McCormick sitting a game. Whatever happens, I don't see Silvio playing any minutes the rest of the year. I'm sure two years of frustration came out last night for Silvio and I feel bad this happened.
