Collins wills Kansas past Wildcats in OT /
' ESPN Game Day announcer Digger Phelps intercepted Sherron Collins as Kansas University’s sweat-soaked senior guard made his way to the locker room after the Jayhawks’ 81-79 overtime victory over Kansas State on Saturday night in Bramlage Coliseum. "He said I was on a mission. He said he could see in my eyes that I’m on a mission to win it all," '

Aldrich: 'Big fella's back' |
' As KU was leaving the floor after beating Kansas State 81-79 in overtime Saturday in Manhattan, coach Bill Self looked at Aldrich and declared the obvious. "Big fella's back," he said. ' Yipeeeeeee!!!

Rivalry creates a game to remember | UDK
' About 30 miles from Manhattan, on I-70 in between Lawrence and Manhattan, there’s a University of Kansas billboard. It used to read "Rock Chalk Jayhawk," but scrawled over it in white paint are four letters: "EMAW," short for "Every man a Wildcat," the new unofficial slogan of Kansas State athletics. The billboard is a reflection of Wildcat fans’ new attitude on their basketball team, that Kansas State is no longer a second-tier program in the state of Kansas. '

Turnovers keep piling up | UDK
' When practice rolls around Monday, screeches and sneaker scuffs will be common in Kansas’ practice facility as players run up and down the court. The running serves as payment for the 22 turnovers – one short of a season high – committed in Kansas’ 61-59 victory at Missouri Saturday. Coincidentally, the Jayhawks also played the Tigers when they recorded a season-high 23 turnovers Jan. 17. '
