Kansas men's basketball coach Bill Self was named the 2015-16 NCAA Division I Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the NABC announced Tuesday.
"I certainly understand Brannen making this decision. We wish him nothing but the very best. He has an NBA skill that I think will translate very well to the next level. We appreciate his efforts during his time at Kansas."
Whether Greene goes undrafted or not will depend on if he can prove to NBA teams that he can do more than just catch and shoot. That has been his role off the bench at Kansas all three seasons, and that was unlikely to change had he returned as a senior.
Next season, Lucas will be a senior. The veteran big man, senior-to-be Frank Mason III and junior-to-be Devonté Graham project as KU’s core of leaders. While Lucas doesn’t know which other rotation players will be back in the mix, he thinks the Jayhawks can build on their March run and the habits this season’s seniors help put in place.
Kansas University recruiting target Josh Jackson scored 19 points and earned co-MVP honors with future Duke player Frank Jackson.
While the Jayhawks and Spartans didn't make it to Houston after getting eliminated from the NCAA Tournament, student managers of those programs will be there playing in their own tournament along with Iowa State and Tennessee.
For Soph. Tyrone Miller, who started seven games, played in all 12 and finished 2015 with 56 tackles, the move marks a return to the position he played during his first three seasons of high school.
“Last year, we were all pretty new,” Stewart says, “including Coach Perry. So this year, we all got a year underneath our belt. So we know what to do, and then the guys behind us can follow us. Everything is smoother in and out of drills, the transition from individual to seven-on-seven — everything’s just smoother than it was last year.”
In a last-minute scheduled makeup game, the Kansas baseball team exploded for a season-high 19 runs off 16 hits, defeating Benedictine College (Kan.) Wednesday afternoon at Hoglund Ballpark.
The Jayhawks travel to No. 13 Oklahoma to start their league lineup April 1-3 at Hynes Field. First pitch of the three-game series is set for Friday, April 1 at 6:30 p.m.

Kiki said he's been watching the games without knowledge of what teams he picked, adding that he "does not want to think about" the bracket now knowing that he could have won prize money with the nation's best bracket.
At FSU's pro day, Tomlin took an interest in Aguayo, who's regarded as the best kicker in the draft and is a self-proclaimed second-round pick. So before Aguayo could kick a simulated game-winning 50-yard field goal, Tomlin reached into his metaphoric pocket to call a fake timeout so that he could ice Aguayo.
The question: "If you wanted to kill a guy, would you kill him with a gun or a knife?"
