The Kansas men’s track and field team finished in 11th place overall at the NCAA Outdoor Championship in Eugene, OR. Kansas got its best performance by a triple-jumper since 1980 as junior Barden Adams claimed fifth-place. He earned All-American honors with his jump of 52-9 1/4. In addition, senior Mitch Cooper tallied sixth in the discuss with a throw of 193-11.
After being named to the All-Big 12 Freshman team, second baseman James Cosentino was named a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball. That’s a great news hit, but when there are 12 second basemen on the list, isn’t it a little watered down?
Five Kansas alums will be inducted into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in Wichita, KS, on Oct 1, 2017. I only recognize one of the five names, and that’s only because of the amount of work I put into the Greatest KU Football Player of All-Time bracket. I doubt you can do better. Anyway, the class totals 13 inductees, and the cool thing for 12 of them is that they’ll get to meet George Brett!
A restricted free agent this offseason, Ben McLemore says he needs to find the right situation in order to take his game to the next level, AKA, get me the hell outta Sacramento.
That Roundball Classic seems like it was a lot of fun. I wish it wasn’t on a Thursday night.
The offseason is in full swing over at the KC Star, as they rank everything from worst basketball losses to Jayhawk logos.
The Warriors have a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. Gee, that sounds familiar. FYI, LeBron passed Magic Johnson for the most triple-doubles AND the most points in Finals history.
Draymond Green is basically a European soccer player playing in the NBA. Why does he flail around like that?
In other Cleveland news, the Browns cut a player hours before he threw out the first pitch at an Indians game.
The video going around where a softball team conspires to intentionally hit an umpire with a pitch is awful. It’s also apparently from 2013. So, I’m not sure why it’s just now going around the internets.
I don’t think this happened in Florida. Actually, this probably happens in Florida every day, so it wouldn’t qualify as news there.
