Sunflower Squeaker: Jayhawks hold off K-State in 73-72 win |
During his first live and in-person experience in the Sunflower Showdown, Malik Newman's two free throws with 15.2 seconds to play gave 12th-ranked Kansas a 73-72, hang-on-for-dear-life victory over visiting Kansas State.

Postgame Report Card: Kansas 73, Kansas State 72 | Tale of the Tait |
The Jayhawks shot 49 percent from the floor, 43.5 percent from 3-point range and made 15 of 17 trips to the free throw line, a fact that brought to mind a strong percentage (88.5) and a solid number of trips. That includes 9-of-10 in the second half and 54.2 percent field goal shooting in the final 20 minutes. There were a few too many bad possessions and, outside of Azubuike's 8-of-9 shooting, no one really shot it that well. But it is a team game and, as a team, the Jayhawks' offense was good enough to get it done on Saturday.

But just before recording one foul and one turnover in four first-half minutes of KU's 73-72 victory over Kansas State on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse, the freshman forward received one heck of an ovation from the home crowd when he checked into the game for the first time with 9:42 to play in the first half.

“When I saw that he set the screen he went to the other side and I knew (Brown) was going to pass the ball to him, so I tried to deny the pass to him as fast as I can,” Azubuike said of a pass that never came.

“It was great. The whole locker room was excited. All of us gave him (De Sousa) a big hug and told him, ‘Congratulations,’’’ KU sophomore guard Malik Newman said. “Adding him will give the big fella (Udoka Azubuike) a little more rest. There will not be as much pressure on Mitch (Lightfoot) to be great every night. He (Lightfoot) can be himself. It’s great.”

Hawaii False Alarm Hints at Thin Line Between Mishap and Nuclear War - The New York Times
Nuclear experts are warning, using some of their most urgent language since President Trump took office, that Hawaii’s false alarm, in which state agencies alerted locals to a nonexistent missile attack, underscores a growing risk of unintended nuclear war with North Korea.

Jocelyn Azbell had just woken up in her Maui hotel Saturday when she was hurried into the hotel's basement to take shelter from an incoming ballistic missile.

"You're thinking, 'Oh my gosh, are we going to die? Is it really a missile (headed) our way, or is it just a test?'" the 24-year-old told CNN. "We really didn't know."

I was home with my daughter, my service dog Pono, and Rosie the chinchilla, who belongs to my daughter, Abby. When I read the alarm, I jump out of bed and grab my glasses. I run to Abigail’s room. “Get up honey. You have to get up right now. Right now. Grab your pillow. Go to the bathroom. Turn on the tub and run it. Turn it off when it’s full. Sit in the corner. Wait for me. Be brave. I’ll be right there.” I give her a hug and a kiss and run off.
