Senior forward Perry Ellis led the way with 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 15 second-half points, in 24 minutes of action. Senior forward Hunter Mickelson tallied 10 points on 5-of-6 from the field with six rebounds in just 13 minutes. Freshman forward Carlton Bragg Jr., made his debut as a Jayhawk with 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting in 21 minutes.
“I couldn’t sleep. I went to sleep about 1 and got up earlier than usual. I had a lot of nerves for my first college game. It was good, though,” Bragg, KU’s 6-foot-9 freshman power forward from Cleveland said after erupting for 14 points off 7-of-12 shooting and grabbing six rebounds while playing 21 minutes in KU’s 89-66 rout of Pittsburg State in Allen Fieldhouse.
KU coach Bill Self said during the preseason that Ellis was leaner and noticeably more explosive heading into his final season with the Jayhawks. Muff agreed with Self and said Ellis' new look was on full display during the exhibition victory over his team Wednesday night.
And asked when it would be determined if Diallo is eligible or not, Self said: “I thought everything would be done by today. The thing about it is it may be a long time, it could be a long time just because if there’s a ruling ... if it does not go the way you want, there are numerous opportunities you have to fight in (appeal).”
Watch Frank Mason III swat a layup, Hunter Mickelson convert a follow jam, Perry Ellis run the floor for a dunk and Carlton Bragg attack the rim.
“Right now, it’s going to be up to how much he is continuing to get well,” Beaty said. “There’s no way he can take a hit right now on that shoulder. I think we’re going to see over the next couple weeks how he does (and) if he can help us in that regard when he’s back, absolutely.”
In this week's episode, Shaffer picks on KU special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Gary Hyman.

Does KU pull off a "Do you believe in miracles?!" moment against Texas this week?
College basketball exhibitions are completely forgetful ... except for when a high-major program loses to a non-Division I school.
Greg Bryant, once a part of Notre Dame's rotation in the offensive backfield, has planned his return to FBS football as a member of the UAB program when Bill Clark leads the Blazers back onto the field in 2017.
This was April 2014. The job at Tennessee was open. Same story at Missouri. And the California native with three Final Fours on his resume would've taken either job if offered. He tried to get involved at both places. But for reasons I'll never understand even if I live to be a million years old, Tennessee and Missouri each passed. And, at this point, that looks like the best thing to ever happen to Mississippi State.

Marcus and Markieff are no longer together, but what remains is the lingering question of how they will perform without one another. Given that we are only one week into the season, it's impossible to make any definitive statements about how their respective games are coping. Instead, let's take a look at how the Morris twins have performed with (and without) each other in the past and see if we can predict how their seasons may play out based on the larger sample size.
The stat correction means that Brees threw two interceptions in the game and finished with 505 yards, instead of 511. The second interception also means that Brees lost two more points in most Fantasy leagues, and as most people who play Fantasy know, two points can be life or death.
Gordon, 31, turned down a $12.5 million salary next season, though he should top that easily in free agency. A four- or five-year deal worth $15 million annually should be within reach, possibly more since the game is flush with money.
