One more on the road: Mason carries Jayhawks to win at OSU |
Led by what Mason called one of the best games of his life, top-ranked Kansas closed the regular season with an intense and wildly entertaining, 90-85 victory over Oklahoma State Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

'Forgotten' no more: Coach and Naismith protégé John McLendon broke color barriers in basketball |
The approximately 5-foot-6-inch African-American gentleman known to some as “Little Coach” was softspoken, deeply humble and never cursed, his biographer Milton S. Katz said. But that demeanor belied a grit that drove McLendon to be one of the most groundbreaking coaches in basketball history.

Price claims record victory |
“Nobody knows how hard this job is more than I do,” Price said. “The best sport played in the Big 12 Conference is baseball. To be here long enough to accomplish that — Floyd coached for 28 years. It is a pretty special day. I just want to thank the players who have played for me and the assistant coaches that have been with me. It has been truly an honor to be the head coach at the University of Kansas.”

Spencer leads KU men’s golfers |
Kansas’ men’s golf team was tied for second place after 36 holes in the Desert Mountain Intercollegiate on Saturday in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Senior statement: Frank Mason leads Jayhawks to victory at OSU |
The 5-foot-11 senior from Petersburg, Va., not only led all scorers with 27 points, Mason battled for eight rebounds and set up his teammates with nine assists, allowing Kansas to enter the postseason in style.

Notebook: Jayhawks thrilled with rare win at Gallagher-Iba Arena |
“Frank hadn’t won here,” said Self of senior Frank Mason III, who led No. 1 Kansas with 27 points. “And, (seniors) Landen (Lucas) and Tyler (Self), (former KU point guard) Naadir (Tharpe) made a shot their freshman year to win, but we haven’t played very well down here at all and it was nice to come down here and play better.”

How a Josh Jackson audible helped Kansas to another close win
This was after a timeout, so you’d expect Kansas’ players to be focused. It was close, so you’d assume the Jayhawks — 13-2 in games decided by 10 points or fewer — to be at their best.

KU snaps losing streak at Oklahoma State with 90-85 win
“It’s got to be up there,” KU senior forward Landen Lucas said after watching 5-foot-11 senior guard Mason score 27 points, tie a career high with nine assists and grab eight rebounds while playing 36 minutes in the No. 1-ranked Jayhawks’ 90-85 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

March Madness 2017: North Carolina, Kentucky among Saturday's winners and losers -
With conference tournaments already in motion for some leagues across the country, teams are already playing to secure their spot in the NCAA Tournament. One league, the OVC, will determine its representative Saturday night. We’ll get three more on Sunday, and it snowballs as we roll to Selection Sunday.

NCAA Tournament Bubble Watch: Syracuse has work to do, Cal has gone in tank -
Syracuse got a win against Georgia Tech Saturday, but the Orange have some bad losses and work to do in the Big East tournament . And Cal ... man, this is going downhill quickly. Also, just when you think Michigan State is starting to get off the bubble, they fall again in Big Ten play, this time to Maryland, and now Sparty could really stand to win a few games in the Big Ten tournament to feel really safe.

Michael Jordan said the 'ceiling is the roof' for UNC football, and now look ... -
I’ve been thinking about those five words for 10 minutes. I still can’t make sense of them. And #MJtheGOAT would’ve been so much better off if he’d just quoted Macklemore and said “the ceiling can’t hold us.” Or simply said “there is no ceiling on what we can accomplish. Go Heels!”

WATCH: Cavs' J.R. Smith has to be restrained at end of loss to Heat -
At the end of the Miami Heat’s 120-92 victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, a bit of a brouhaha ensued. Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith, inactive because of a thumb injury, took exception to Heat guard Rodney McGruder dunking on and shoving Cleveland big man Channing Frye with the game in hand.
