Kansas lands No. 27 prospect Azubuike |
Future Kansas University basketball player Udoka Azubuike, who orally committed to KU over North Carolina and Florida State on Thursday on ESPNU, happens to be a 16-year-old true center from Nigeria — who, despite not yet starting a weight-lifting program — stands a stout 6-foot-11, 270 pounds.

Free State High standout Bryce Torneden switches to Kansas |
One week after learning that local prospect Amani Bledsoe, the top-ranked player in Kansas, was headed to Oklahoma instead of joining the Jayhawks, the Kansas University football program got a dose of good hometown news on Thursday night.

KU among fundraising leaders |
Slick new additions to the Kansas University basketball environment accounted for most of it, and, according a report by the Council for Aid to Education, KU ranked 10th nationally in private donations during the 2014-15 fiscal year among universities that responded to the survey.

Bragging rights: Freshman forward satisfied with decision |
On Jan. 8, 2015, in a ceremony in his Villa Angela St. Joseph High gym, Bragg placed a KU hat on his head and declared, "Next year I’ll be playing at the University of Kentucky." He immediately covered his face with his hands and quickly corrected, "Kansas. I’m sorry."

Texas thumps KU women |

NCAA basketball's most recognized referee is well-traveled John Higgins
John Higgins returns the voicemail message from an airport, naturally. He is standing in a terminal at Dallas/Fort Worth International, hoping to get to Hartford, Conn., despite an impending blizzard. The night before, he had been in El Paso. The night before that, in Waco. The night before that, in Stillwater. That followed a western swing of five straight days that took him to, in order, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Spokane, Tucson and Salt Lake City. It was just another week in the vertiginous, sleep-deprived, sensory-overloaded, itinerant life of one of college basketball's most in-demand referees. "I'm a professional traveler," Higgins, 54, says with a laugh. "The games are the easy part."
