NCAA Basketball: Tennessee State at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports


Kansas basketball did just enough to edge Kentucky in Chicago on Tuesday night.

KU missed 44 shots, so the narrative is that experience was able to provide some intangibles that allowed the Jayhawks to prevail.

Bill Self said of Devonte Graham, “He took some marginal shots.”

KU announced prior to tip-off that Billy Preston would be held out of the game due to a one-car, on-campus incident on Saturday. Apparently there are some questions about the ownership of the vehicle.


Asked whether or not KU football is ahead of or behind schedule of the rebuilding process, David Beaty answered with, “right in the middle.”

Tom Keegan says that the KU administration is proving what Leo Durocher said many years ago - nice guys finish last.

Keegan also goes through a partial list of names that KU could have had instead of Charlie Weis and David Beaty.

Kansas football will play its final two games of the season without Tyler Patrick, Jeremiah Booker, Quan Hampton, and Shakial Taylor due to injury.

OUDaily does a Q&A with the UDK about the game on Saturday.


Could one of these coordinators be the next Kansas football coach? I’m assuming David Beaty wins less than four games next year, of course.

A Tennessee State football player attacked his position coach on the sideline during a game and has been expelled from the university.

Tom Izzo just cannot beat Coach K.

The saga of NC State guard Braxton Beverly appears to have come to a close with the NCAA finally agreeing to allow the guy to play this year.

The United States of America, which likely invented the participation trophy, is considering hosting a tournament next year for teams that did not qualify for FIFA’s World Cup.
