Robinson Scholarship Fund

Funeral Arrangements for Lisa Robinson - KANSAS OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE
Information on Robinson's mother's funeral and the scholarship fun previously mentioned in KG's fanshot. The players and coaches are happy with the way the NCAA has handled this and this we probably the biggest smile Bill Self had last night in the postgame when he mentioned the fund.

Jayhawks doing their best to cope with grief off the court - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball -
Kansas beats a good Colorado team in Boulder on Tuesday. Its next road trip is even tougher: Supporting Thomas Robinson at his mother's funeral. Gary Parrish says no playbook can prepare for this grief. - H/T/ Warden

KU's Josh Selby bolder vs. Colorado |
Selby definitely came out of his "slump" last night and looked like a guy playing with a lot of confidence. Still seems a little off when penetrating, but the pull up from beyond the arc sure looked nice and was much needed.

Buffs: Threes, offensive boards key for KU |
Without a doubt it was a big night for both teams from beyond the arc. CU shot 70% and for our part Brady and Josh stepped up.

Fitting tribute: KU pays ‘respect’ in win |
Definitely sensed it was an emotional win for Kansas last night. Nothing to do with the opponent, the game or anything else, just Thomas Robinson.

Morningstar heats up in KU victory |
If you asked me the confidence seemed to jump quite a bit for Brady last night. After he hit one it just seemed like a different player. Looking for his shot and taking it.

Paige: Buffs can't beat KU, but they're for real - The Denver Post
Woody Paige talks about the game last night and I don't completely agree. Most of this game I felt pretty good about our Jayhawks. The only tricky part was Kansas didn't do a good job of stopping Burks on the drive. Colorado is a good team, better than they have been in some time. But they still lack a complete team in my opinion.

Kansas shoots sharp, edges Colorado 82-78 in Boulder - The Denver Post
Denverpost recap. 21-2 edge in second chance points for the Jayhawks. CU has issues on the interior. That clearly showed last night and that was without Thomas Robinson.
