The University of Kansas men's and women's basketball teams will tip off their 2016-17 seasons at the 32nd annual Late Night in the Phog Saturday, Oct. 1, in Allen Fieldhouse.
Josh Jackson and the rest of Kansas University’s perimeter players ran through shooting drills on one end of the court, while fellow freshman Udoka Azubuike and the other Jayhawk big men roamed the other side, thrilling several hundred Bill Self basketball campers during a 30-minute exercise on Tuesday at Horejsi Center.
Although the loss of both linemen certainly qualifies as a disappointment for the Jayhawks, it also comes as no surprise. Any time players of their caliber — or, really, any caliber — commit as early as they did to a place like KU, it's always a challenge for the Jayhawks to hang on to them.
The Kansas men's and women's track & field teams will be traveling Eugene, Oregon this week for the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Championships. The Jayhawks will have a total of five athletes and a relay team in action at this week's meet, who will compete against the nation's best at historic Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon, June 8-11.
Jen Betz is many things to Kansas swimming and diving, the sum of which has landed her among the finalists for CollegeSwimming's Assistant Coach of the Year Award. Betz, a former Kansas swimmer and 13-year assistant coach with the Jayhawks, is one of four finalists in the Established Assistant category, which the general public can help select via Twitter.
The additional revenue was coming primarily from an increase in the NCAA conference budget, plus moderate increases in KU’s Williams Education Fund annual drive, ticket revenues and other sources.

The Big 12 realignment story is slowing down at the moment, but here's how the Knights of Orlando sold themselves to the Power 5.
Following in the footsteps of the Big 12, which late last week announced it will welcome back its title game beginning in 2017, the Sun Belt will become the second league to take advantage of a recent NCAA decision that allows all leagues -- even those with fewer than 12 members and without two six-team divisions -- to hold championship games.

Diallo now appears to be a mid-first-round pick at best, and a late-first-round pick at worst.
Clint Dempsey had a goal and two assists as the Americans rebounded with a convincing victory in Chicago.
For an act this tired, the performance must validate it, and the chasm between Ventura’s performance and potential is grand.
The brawl started when Yordano Ventura plunked Manny Machado with a pitch in the fifth inning. Machado charged the mound and started throwing punches.
That is one of those plays the video does not do justice. The degree of difficulty was insanely high. Cain was running full speed at the wall and had to time his jump perfectly to rob Pedro Alvarez and what would have been a two-run dinger. He couldn't slow down at all.
