Kansas University junior forward Perry Ellis, who was given the OK to practice on Tuesday by KU’s team doctors, remains questionable for Thursday’s Big 12 tournament quarterfinal game against Kansas State or TCU.
Kansas, who as anyone who has attended a tournament in Kansas City can attest, is the de facto home team and will once again be the favorite. However, with Perry Ellis' status (knee) in flux and Cliff Alexander's eligibility in question, it's easy to see KU making an early exit. Three or four real contenders are waiting right behind the Jayhawks alongside three or four more teams capable of making a special run to Saturday night.
Off to a slow start, the Kansas baseball team dropped its third-straight contest Tuesday afternoon at Hoglund Ballpark, falling to Central Michigan, 8-2. (Mr. Ed says: A slow start is an understatement. Can't afford to be dropping games to MAC teams.)

This is how seriously Major League Baseball takes the results of spring training games: Actor and comedian Will Ferrell plans to play all nine positions in the Cactus League on Wednesday.
With the Seattle Super Sonics long gone from Seattle, fans in the city have found other teams to root for. Some root for the nearby Portland Trail Blazers but for 16-year-old Connor, he wanted to have a team show the same type of allegience to him that he would for them. So he handwrote letters to all 30 NBA teams and mailed them out asking the teams to win his fandom.
(Mr. Ed says: Ok, this was cute the first time a 7-year old kid or whatever did it. Now it's just lame.)

Collinsworth’s ninth assist of the night involved throwing the ball through a teammate’s legs to find a wide open shooter behind the three-point line. Clever.
So, which spin move was the best?
That's got to be the worst feeling for a keeper, seeing a free kick swerve towards goal, knowing full well you have no chance of getting to it, and praying that the bangs off the crossbar or something right as you hear the ball twisting against the nylon of the net.
