Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 1.6.10

That was easy and uneventful.  Nice win for the Hawks last night.  Michigan this weekend and I know I've said this before but word is today is the day that DeAndre Daniels announces and everyone is still saying Kansas.  I guess I think this is a big deal with the potential NBA defections, but I'm not sure everyone feels the same.

Minus Selby, this was not a night for the usual suspects and that's a good thing. It's always nice to give those role players a chance to gain some confidence before conference play when they might be called upon to step up in a game or two. Tyshawn Taylor, Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford all with very nice games. And minus the fouling, Jeff Withey with a solid 14 minutes on the interior. Could he be coming around?

Well adjusted: Taylor comfortable with Selby now | KUsports.com

This is definitely good news to hear. Taylor had a very nice game last night. I believe I saw 7 assists and ZERO turnovers along with his point production. Throw in Selby's 7 assists and our two primary ball handlers contributed 14 assists with just 3 turnovers. UMKC is a bad team but chemistry still looks improved.

Break makes KU better, but … | KUsports.com

What I take from this is the first half of the article. Releford, Selby and Johnson are all faces that are going to see minutes on this team and every one can make a big impact in my opinion. Each in a slightly different way perhaps, but each can do it.

Remember how everyone assumed this guy would transfer for the last two years? I can remember Mizzou fans saying he hated KU and wanted to go to Mizzou where he would actually play and Kansas fans pretty much accepted that and other rumors as fact. Clearly we were all WAY off. Releford is turning into one of my favorite contributors on this team for what he does and what I think he's going to do in a time where Kansas will be transitioning between "eras" here in the near future.
