Not this time: Kansas dominates in return to TCU | KUsports.com

KU had 14 points 4 1/2 minutes into the game Saturday in topping the fabled 13-point mark before the first TV time out. Joel Embiid scored seven points, Andrew Wiggins five and Jamari Traylor two as the Jayhawks led, 14-6. Up 14-10 at 14:11, the Jayhawks rolled, 12-2, to take a 26-12 lead. Wiggins and Perry Ellis had four apiece in the run.

“Boy, they’re good,” Johnson said after KU defeated his team, 91-69, in front of 7,494, the largest crowd to watch a basketball game in the building. “They’re really good. Watching tape, it’s hard to find a weakness.”

Wiggins said his coach’s words weren’t on his mind when he took the floor, but also said he’s motivated by such challenges.

“He tells me a lot that I can do more, do more for the team, do more for myself and that’s what I’m trying to do,” Wiggins said. “... It’s never a negative thing. People might take it as negative criticism, but it’s not. That just motivates me to do better and try to provide more.”

Notebook: Self says some players flop, others 'sell' fouls | KUsports.com

“I probably faked it or flopped quite a bit just to get a call back when I played many years ago,” said Self, a former Oklahoma State point guard. “Being able to sell a foul is part of the game. Some guys are unbelievable at it, especially at the NBA level. Some guys are professionals at it. The flop without contact obviously is not good for our game. I don’t go as far as say (affect) integrity (of the game). Certainly it takes away from what the game is supposed to be like.”

The timing couldn’t have been worse. No, this wasn’t the right night for TCU students to hold up a sign that said, “You’re not even the best Wiggins in Kansas.” Or the correct time to chant, “O-ver-ra-ted” during a first-half Andrew Wiggins free throw.After all the recent talk about lowering the expectations for Wiggins, the top-ranked freshman showed Saturday just how dangerous Kansas could be with him playing at his best.
