David Beaty has seen redshirt freshman Carter Stanley manage a game. Now the Kansas football coach wants his starting quarterback to take the next step this week, in his second career start.

Tuesday was terrific for college hoops -- and there's a lot more coming in months ahead.
With 1.7 seconds left on an out-of-bounds play from halfcourt, Xavier caught a huge break when Macura's quick pass to Edmond Sumner -- which would have made for a very tough, quick shot -- was bailed out by a foul on Phillips.
