KU prepares for late night

There's a hole in my heart, As deep as a well, For that poor little boy, Who's stuck halfway to hell,

Kansas news

Late Night brings range of emotions for KU basketball teams |
Having done it twice before and owning a fair amount of confidence in his own ability, Graham did not seem to be too concerned about his time on the court-turned-dance-floor. However, he did not hesitate to pinpoint which teammates were and probably should be most nervous about the experience, which officially gets under way at 6:30 tonight at Allen Fieldhouse, with doors opening at 5:00 for students and 5:30 for the general public.

Kansas soccer tops TCU, 2-1 |
Junior forward Lois Heuchan snapped an enormous scoring drought with a pair of goals to lift Kansas soccer over TCU, 2-1. With the road win, the Jayhawks moved to 7-3-2 on the season and 2-0 in the Big 12.

Ryan Willis regrets missed opportunities in loss at Texas Tech |
Ryan Willis left Lubbock, Texas, late Thursday night wondering how the Kansas football team’s trip to play Texas Tech might have changed if one key third-quarter series had played out differently. The backup quarterback went as far to take the blame for how the game turned in favor of the Red Raiders afterward.

Bill Self off the court: Springsteen, walks, reading … and sports on TV
“If I could pick anybody to see, it probably would have been Luther (Vandross) before he passed … but I would still say (Bruce) Springsteen,” said Self, who has seen him several times. “Withstood the test of time … (Springsteen) and Bob Dylan aren’t going to win any vocals contests, but somehow he’s got a way to get people to be energized by his music.”

Sixers No.1 pick Ben Simmons fractures foot; timetable for return uncertain -
The Sixers announced Friday night that No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons has a fracture in his right foot. This comes just days before the Sixers play their first preseason game and are expected to debut Joel Embiid for the first time in two years. He too has been sidelined with complications from a broken foot over the past couple seasons.

WATCH: David Ortiz delivers another Fenway Park memory with clutch home run -
This weekend, Red Sox icon David Ortiz is playing his final regular-season series at Fenway Park. Boston has already clinched the AL East title, so he will play at home in the postseason, but this is it for the regular season.

Friday Five: These schools are Les Miles' most likely destinations -
In this week's Monday After, I wrote that the most likely fate for the recently fired Les Miles is that, rather than getting back into coaching, the 62-year old steps on to a television set near you. Now, that's just a prediction. Based on recent comments from Miles since losing his job at LSU, he sounds like a man that wants to stay in coaching.

Klay Thompson jokes Warriors could score 150 in a game, but they seriously might -
What about the amount of points they can possibly put up in a game? Thompson was asked about this during media availability and the joking question was whether or not we're going to see some games in which the Warriors score 140 points or more. Thompson went along with the preposterous reality and even joked back that 150 points in a game could be within reach for them.

Pat Riley says Chris Bosh cut off communication with the Heat -
Chris Bosh failing his physical with the Miami Heat wasn't the end of this situation and the possible ugliness that could stem from it. In his latest video for the Uninterrupted series, Bosh threw out a potentially disturbing revelation that he found out about his failed physical from the media. Not a call from the Heat. Not a text from the Heat. He found out the same way we did that he wasn't cleared to play. If that's true, that's a horrendous way for the Heat organization to handle it and let him find out his career in Miami is over.
