No. 9 Kansas will make its fourth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Volleyball Championship, starting with a first-round match against Furman at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday at Horejsi Family Athletics Center. The winner of Kansas-Furman faces the winner of Thursday's first match of the day between No. 25 Missouri and Missouri State at 4 p.m.
“It didn’t feel that much like a homecourt advantage,” senior outside hitter Tiana Dockery said of the Expocentre experience. “It was a little bit different. We tried to make it work for us. I think that we’ve fought long and hard to play in Horejsi. We’re really excited we actually have the opportunity to do so. Dreams came true,” she added.
Perhaps lost in the Diallo debut was the fact that the Jayhawks once again topped the 90-point mark and really appear to be clicking on offense. KU needed a 54-point second half to get there, but it did not look all that difficult as the Jayhawks scored in transition, hit from the outside and got balance throughout the lineup. Self said in Maui that he thought — and hoped — his team could be a heck of a lot better offensively in a month than it is today. But if this team can continue to take strides on the defensive end, the ease and versatility with which it can score on offense, will make the Jayhawks a very tough team to beat.
Although Selden loved the way Diallo played and how he impacted the game on both ends, the junior wing, who seems to have hit his South Korea stride, believes Tuesday’s showing was just the beginning for the long, athletic forward from Mali who was forced by the NCAA to sit out five games following a fight for eligibility that lasted months.
University of Kansas men's basketball players Perry Ellis, Frank Mason III, Wayne Selden Jr. and Cheick Diallo have been named to various national watch lists, released Wednesday.

Nebraska finished a disappointing 5-7 in its first regular season under Mike Riley, but players aren’t going to let upset fans walk all over them. Junior wide receiver Brandon Reilly went out to eat today, and encountered a server who wanted to rant about the Huskers, apparently not realizing who was sitting at the table. Rather than tip “Trey,” Reilly left him a note.
