Before the Jayhawks (15-1 overall, 4-0 Big 12) get too excited about ranking fourth in the nation in 3-point accuracy (42.2%), though, their coach will remind them not all of their looks from downtown have been ideal.
“We don’t deserve that,” said KU coach Bill Self, who also picked up his 400th victory as the leader of the Jayhawks on Tuesday night. “I’ve coached for a while and I’ve felt like there are some teams that have put in time and effort, and I don’t feel like this team quite has.”
“I don’t see it changing if we are going to have a really good year,” Self added of Mason’s minutes. “Granted in a perfect world you want to play guys 30 minutes a game. I understand that. It’s not a perfect world for us from a what-our-team-needs standpoint."
Each of the last four national champions started a pair of stellar point guards. With Mason and Graham, Kansas has a chance to make it five.
“Coach Beaty’s been great to me,” Willis said. “Sometimes the ball doesn’t fall your way. As a quarterback, it’s kind of the nature of the beast. We bounce around more than any other position. I took emotions out of the equation and I’m doing what’s best for me and my family.” “It was kind of recruiting Round 2 for me,” Willis said. “It was kind of refreshing to see schools interested in me. It gave me some confidence back.”
Kansas football has finalized the nonconference portion of its schedule through 2021 with the addition of FBS opponents Boston College and Duke and soon-to-be FBS member Coastal Carolina.
With a month to go until the 2017 softball season begins, Kansas was selected to finish the Big 12 Conference slate in fifth place, as voted on by the league coaches.
(Mr. Ed says: Reminder, the Big 12 only has 7 teams that compete in softball.)

The Spartans as the best in the Big Ten? Can't go there just yet, but it's back on the table.
When Clemson beat Ohio State in the semifinals, the gap in revenue between them was comparable to Clemson playing New Mexico for a spot in the national championship. Yet since 2012, the Tigers have a 19-8 record against opponents that typically rank in the top 25 for athletic revenue.
With three top-15 matchups (and of course, another Grayson Allen mini-controversy), it was easy to get lost in all of the hype. That’s where this blog comes in with the latest look at the blue bloods across the country. Here’s a look at the top 10 teams.

Philadelphia beat New York at the buzzer, and The Process danced the night away.
The Chargers are expected to leave San Diego and relocate to join the Rams in Los Angeles, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Schefter says the team is planning to make a formal announcement as soon as Thursday.
The StubHub center is a soccer-specific facility and home to the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer. It’s still a reasonably new facility, as it opened in 2003, and is a fine MLS setting. But, it’s not your typical environment for a NFL game. The stadium seats 27,000 for soccer games, which will make it almost half the size of the next smallest NFL stadium.
