Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 3.11.13

Kansas Basketball

Opinion: Perry Ellis lone highlight for KU at Baylor | KUsports.com
He played 22 minutes and produced 12 points, three rebounds and his first assist in 12 games. He looked more like a player who belonged in a big game than a freshman overwhelmed by the size of the bodies in the paint.

Jeff Withey, Ben McLemore selected to All-Big 12 first team | KUsports.com
Kansas University senior center Jeff Withey on Sunday was named Big 12 defensive player of the year for the second straight season in a vote of league coaches.

KU’s ninth straight Big 12 title is shared after 81-58 loss at Baylor - KansasCity.com
In the moments after Kansas’ 81-58 loss to Baylor on Saturday, Bears coach Scott Drew played court jester. He grabbed the microphone near midcourt and invited the Baylor students down to the floor of the Ferrell Center for a delayed court-storming.

Kansas Football

RB James Sims - Kansas - Big 12 Players To Watch In 2013 - Photos - SI.com -
For a team that didn't beat an FBS opponent last season, Kansas can at least take pride in its running game. There may not be very many reasons to be excited for football season in Lawrence, but Sims' return should be at the top of the list.

College Basketball

Indiana Hoosiers vs. Michigan Wolverines - Recap - March 10, 2013 - ESPN
Seems as though this probably locks up a no. 1 seed for Indiana.

Duke Blue Devils at the top of their game against North Carolina Tar Heels -- college basketball - ESPN
I'll go ahead and mark Duke down as a lock in the one column as well. They have a lot of momentum and buzz and unless they fall completely flat in the ACC tourney they'll be a one out East. That leaves Gonzaga in the West barring a major upset and just one top seed remaining with a host of possibilities. Kansas still has a shot, nothing short of a championship game appearance will do. Probably need to win it. Might as well close this thing out with nine straight and call it a day.
