Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 3.22.13


Kansas Basketball

In sharp focus: Veterans keep Jayhawks on task |
"It gets mentioned," KU senior center Jeff Withey said of some KU shockers in past NCAAs. "We don’t want to be known as one of those teams that loses to a lesser name, you’d say. We’ve already lost this year to TCU. Baylor was a bad loss. We’ve lost badly to teams.

Notebook: Kevin Young a cubist; Roy Williams gets warm welcome |
"I still remember that. I’ve come a long way from the middle of nowhere in California and desert everywhere to snowy Kansas,"

Opinion: Perry Ellis picks perfect time to turn up aggressiveness |
“I’m not a guy who is going to grab you by the neck or anything like that, but I was like, ‘Dunk the ball!’ I just got in his face and told him to be aggressive,” Withey said. “I think everybody on the team has done that with Perry at one time or another.”

KC’s Travis Releford is the Jayhawks’ ‘rock’ -
The heart and soul of the Kansas Jayhawks grew up near 33rd and Prospect, a Kansas City kid in so many ways. On long summer days, Travis Releford would ride his bike past Central High, or go play basketball at Vineyard Park on the East Side.

Roy Williams may be here, but this is Bill Self’s time at KU -
The truth is, Kansas basketball is better than Williams left it, and who saw that coming?
