Kansas Basketball

Looking for more: Ben McLemore says he fixed his shot |
“Coach (Joe, assistant) Dooley pointed out that I usually shoot with my fingers spread apart. But he said lately that he’s been seeing me shoot with my fingers close together, which is probably why some of my shots were long. He got me shooting back to normal,” McLemore said, explaining some technical issues that may have caused his recent shooting woes.

This KU player should thrive against Michigan's defense, plus a Trey Burke quirk to watch out for | Five-minute Scout |
I've picked him a lot lately, but this is the game to pick Jeff Withey for his offense instead of his defense.

Elijah Johnson has more to give, and that’s what KU needs -
Johnson’s path is much more complicated. The point guard of a team whose coach once said, “We don’t have a point guard,” is now going against perhaps the nation’s best point guard.

Opinion: Jeff Withey, Trey Burke keys tonight |
Burke, a 6-footer, and Withey, a 7-footer, play polar-opposite positions, but that doesn’t mean their worlds won’t intersect during today’s South Regional semifinal inside Cowboys Stadium scheduled to tip off at 6:37 p.m.

Forever Young: KU senior is Jayhawks’ energy supply -

KU’s Naadir Tharpe familiar with UM’s Mitch McGary |
Before moving on to college, Tharpe and McGary played together for one season at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H.

2013 NCAA tournament - Marquette punishes Miami to advance to the Elite Eight - ESPN
Honestly I'm glad to see the Miami run end. Although they would have probably been an easier out than Marquette. No reason to worry about that just yet though.

Rapid Reaction: Syracuse 61, Indiana 50 - Men's College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
Big East pretty much dominated the East bracket last night.

Tubby Smith contacted by Texas Tech Red Raiders, sources - ESPN
It'd be a great hire for Tech, not sure if I'd take it if I'm Tubby and I'm also not sure Chris Walker shouldn't be given another chance.

Wichita State one win away from Final Four with win over La Salle -
Good deal for the Shockers. Seems to be some animosity or something pushed our direction by Wichita State but I'm not sure I really see the issue. Good for them, I think it's great. Maybe someone from Wichita can shed some light on the non-rivalry rivalry.

Arizona Wildcats vs. Ohio State Buckeyes - NCAA Tournament Game - Recap - March 28, 2013 - ESPN
I was pleased by this one. For somewhat selfish reasons.
