So our goal was to try to take away scoring from two, three feet from the basket and hope that they get cold outside and start panicking a little bit.”

He was going to be a Jayhawk and KU's coaches had yet to ever see him play in person.
“I mean, for us, this is such a pivotal game for our state,” Beaty said, “trying to make sure that we’re competing for the top recruits in the state, and there’s nothing like winning that game. That says a bunch. So obviously that is a huge deal for both teams involved.”
