Jayhawks dial up record 19 3-pointers in rout of Texas Southern | KUsports.com
“When we played (Indiana) the year (Davis led them) to the finals (2002), they got on us pretty early and their guards were 16 of 21 (from 3-point range) against us,” Self recalled of a rough game during his second season at Illinois. “So I reminded him of that. I just called him saying, 'Hey, man, you going to bust us with 16 threes again like you did in 2002?' I just wanted to see if he knew who it was and he knew exactly who it was.”

“It was funny,” Davis said of Self’s phone call that preceded a game in which KU knocked down a KU school-record 19 threes in 36 attempts — the most attempts from beyond the arc by the Jayhawks in a single game.

Inside Joel Embiid’s decision to leave KU, another excerpt from Big 12 title streak book
Norm Roberts: “Joel didn’t want to enter the draft. He sat in my office in tears. He kept saying, ‘I don’t want to go. I don’t want to go. Call my mom and dad and tell them I want to stay.’ Then it was like, ‘Joel, you’re going to be a top three pick. You could be the No. 1 pick.’
