In the last three games alone — including Saturday’s 89-74 victory over Stanford — the Ukrainian Jayhawk has knocked in more than half of three-point attempts and is now shooting .450 from long distance through the first eight games of the 2016-17 season.
University of Kansas center Landen Lucas wasn’t in the mood to be told he’d played well — even if an eight-point, five-rebound effort appeared to be progress in the Jayhawks’ 89-74 victory over Stanford on Saturday.
Patience and self-awareness are skills that have served Lucas well at the poker table and even better on the basketball floor. He's stuck it out at Kansas, biding his time as a fringe rotation player and eventually working his way into the starting lineup for one of the top programs in America.
Self, who is 599-189 overall in 24 seasons, could become the ninth fastest to reach 600 victories.
Although Ealy and Bush visiting campus obviously doesn’t guarantee anything for Kansas, it’s another indicator that Beaty seems to be steering the program in the right direction.
Like most of the game, the final five minutes of overtime were neck and neck with both teams battling to take control and the lead. In the final minute of the game, the Jayhawks were forced to foul in order to stop the clock, as Alabama pulled away with the victory after nearly suffering its first loss of the year.

Bob Bowlsby felt his conference has been unfairly punished compared to the Big Ten and Pac-12.
The Maine Black Bears used their road game at Duke as means for a gesture of support toward LGBTQ communities. Why the Duke game? Well, it's Duke of course. Optimal chance for attention to the cause. But also because of Duke's state of residence.
After the Terrapins' Melo Trimble missed a junmper in the game's first few minutes, Solomon went up for the uncontested rebound and couldn't corral it in. Instead, the ball tipped off his fingertips and went right back up into the basket to give Maryland free points.
Oklahoma Sooners star Khadeem Lattin attempted a brief, dramatic audition during the game on Saturday in front of Hayes. And he was clearly not sold on the acting job done here by Lattin, who woefully flails his arms in the air reacting to ... absolutely nothing.
