Early to rise: Transfer WR Gonzalez steals spring show |
Four Matthew Wyman field goals — of 31, 28, 22 and 34 yards, all against no rush — and an eight-yard pass from Carter Stanley to Steven Sims Jr. in the second half accounted for nearly all of the actual football points on a day the KU coaching staff put together an unusual scoring system that delivered points for everything from first downs to three-and-outs and even took away points for penalties.

KU soccer takes friendly |
“I was really happy with how we played in the first half today,” Kansas coach Mark Francis said. “We were all over them in the first half and were doing some really nice things on both ends of the field. We came out a little flat in the second half, but, overall, I was happy with the game today. I think the first two matches of the spring (vs. the Kansas Men’s Club Team and FC Kansas City) really helped us and have us in a good place as we move forward over the next few weeks.”

Kansas softball sweeps pair |
“We could feel the energy and that helped us,” KU coach Megan Smith said. “Today, I felt like everyone was into the game and our team fed off of that, which was fun. It was a fun day to be out here because of so many young girls. A lot of those young girls want to be out on a college softball field one day, so it’s a lot of fun to see them in the stands cheering for us.”

Kawinpakorn claims golf title |
Kawinpakorn won the Red Raider Invitational with a three-round scored of 7-under 209. That lowered her week-old school record for a 54-hole score and was her school-record fifth individual title of the season.

Kansas baseball blanked by TCU |
Kansas University managed just six hits and surrendered 13 in an 8-0 Big 12 baseball loss to No. 6-ranked TCU on Saturday at Hoglund Ballpark.

Prep Jackson helps U.S. cruise at Hoop Summit |
Josh Jackson, the top-rated high school basketball player in the country, scored seven points off 3-of-7 shooting and grabbed four rebounds as Team USA clobbered the World Select team, 101-67, in Saturday’s Nike Hoop Summit in Portland.

Spring game notebook: Jayhawks honor Bourbon |
