We have hope. Rebellions are built on hope!


Gameday Breakdown: No. 3 KU basketball vs. Kansas State |

Always one to pick the perfect times to issue his challenges, Self clearly is calling on Frank Mason III and Devonte’ Graham to be better defensively against the Wildcats than they have been maybe at any point this season.

The Wildcats, off to their best start since 2009-10, feature a balanced offense with six players averaging at least 9.5 points and a defense that’s tough to score against.

After years of trying to beat the Jayhawks and their gigantic frontcourts with small, quick lineups, the Wildcats will look to reverse course and create mismatches with their own big men at 8 p.m. on Tuesday at Allen Fieldhouse. Kansas predominantly uses a four-guard lineup with center Landen Lucas in the paint. Weber wants K-State forwards D.J. Johnson and Dean Wade to take advantage.

Coaches, players have different perspective on Jayhawks' rotation |

“I think seven’s not enough,” Self said. “I think eight’s our number with this team. Getting behind early and playing one man down, with Josh in foul trouble (against TCU), I just thought it was best in that situation to try to keep the guys that had been there before to get the majority of the minutes.”

“If you don't get all your needs addressed, then sometimes you have to look at May if you really think you need a junior college guy,” the coach added, hinting at the possibility of more juco players joining ahead of preseason camp. “But, yeah, for us, the No. 1 priority is always to get them here in January if you can.”
