It’s been more than three weeks since Kansas University sophomore Brannen Greene made more than one shot in a KU basketball game. And even in that game — a Feb. 23 loss at Kansas State — Greene knocked down a pair of two-pointers. You have to go back another two weeks to find the last time Greene made more than one three-pointer — his signature shot — in a single game.
The Kansas women's golf team finish 13th at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational at the Sewalio Golf Club Tuesday after shooting a 302 (+14) for the third round and ending up with an overall score of 913 (+49).

Players from both Iowa State and Kansas — the two teams that survived to get to the Big 12 tournament championship game in Kansas City, Missouri, this past weekend — agreed the league prepared each tourney-bound team well for the madness of March.
Stefan Moody scored 26 points and led Mississippi's comeback from a 17-point halftime deficit to a 94-90 victory over BYU on Tuesday night in the First Four.
Sunday in Omaha, if it comes to pass, would be awesome, too. The Jayhawks (26-8) and Shockers (28-4) haven't met on a basketball court since 1993, and insiders will tell you that KU coach Bill Self and Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall are not exactly what you'd call Facebook friends.
Most consecutive NCAA tourneys: Kansas (26), Duke (20), Michigan State (18), Gonzaga (16), Wisconsin (16). Additionally, Bill Self is coaching his 15th straight NCAA Tournament as a No. 4 seed or better. (Mr Ed says: Gee, I wonder if Mr. Norlander (the author) is a lurker here at RCT...!)
Gregg Marshall feels right at home at Wichita State, but could he really be there for the long haul?
You might hate Christian Laettner, especially if you're a Kentucky or North Carolina basketball fan, but you have to give the former Duke All-American this much: He couldn't have handled the debut of his "30 for 30" retrospective on ESPN much better.
(Mr. Ed says: Attn BBN - this is a joke. It is only a joke.) Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari sought to temper expectations for his team heading into the NCAA Tournament, reminding the media today that his talent-laden team is just a dozen injuries away from having to really fight and scrap to go 40–0 and cut down the nets in Indianapolis.

You might think that with all the mockery of St. Louis that goes on, we Gawker Media writers are being unfair to the city that is just so gosh-darn humble that it can't stop telling you how humble it is. You might think wrong.
Fahrenheit gives you almost double—1.8x—the precision* of Celsius without having to delve into decimals, allowing you to better relate to the air temperature. Again, we're sensitive to small shifts in temperature, so Fahrenheit allows us to discern between two readings more easily than "Saint Celsius" ever could.

Joyner said at Monday's media session if his team won over Manhattan, he'd need "Jesus on speed dial" for help with Kentucky. Joyner played into the joke on Tuesday night.
Because we don't have the whole context here we can't be positive, but it sure seems like Hurley is commiserating with Iona coach Tim Cluess about how Jeff Anderson, the bald referee who called the tech on Amayo, sucks.
Maybe even more improbable, Wade was denied an assist by a great defensive play from ... JR Smith? Basketball is great sometimes.
Mr. Ed says: No explanation necessary.
