How a year of adversity helped the Northeastern men‘s basketball team prepare for the Kansas Jayhawks and March Madness - News @ Northeastern
Northeastern fans know the narrative of how this team regathered itself after blowing a 17-point lead in the final of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament one year ago. The Huskies devoted themselves to recovering from that setback, so that now, in hindsight, their ascension to this NCAA Tournament seems to have been destined all along. But Coen insists there was no such certainty after last year—and that is why this season has been so special.

Jayhawks arrive in Salt Lake City more 'under the radar' than in recent years |
Usually, by now, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has done a dozen different radio and television interviews and talked until he was blue in the face about his team’s status entering the NCAA Tournament, both as a top contender and as a general representative of one of the greatest sporting events on the calendar each year.

Shane Jackson: Kansas should wait to go small against Northeastern |
Many are wondering how Kansas is going to defend Northeastern’s four-guard lineup when the two teams square off at approximately 3 p.m. Thursday in Salt Lake City. It is a reasonable conundrum for the Jayhawks, who just faced a similar style of play in a double-digit loss to Iowa State during the Big 12 championship.

Les Miles: KU football's third spring practice focused on 'physicality' |
After getting the previous week off for the university’s spring break, the Kansas football team got back to its spring practice schedule Tuesday afternoon and, unlike the first two sessions from earlier this month, the Jayhawks got to wear some shells and do some hitting.

Northeastern has 'more fire power' with 2 key rotation players back from injuries |
“We fought some adversity throughout the year,” Coen said during a phone interview with the Journal-World earlier this week. “We had some injuries to some of our prominent players, and I think the silver lining through that is we figured out that other guys can contribute, as well. And we can play different styles and different lineups. I think it’s increased our depth a little bit. And, you know, you’ll need that going into a tournament with so many good teams.”

Sentencing for basketball recruiting fixer moved to September |
A college basketball recruiting fixer who revealed that he had made illicit payments to University of Kansas basketball players will now have to wait until September for sentencing.

Joe Dineen confident heading into KU football Pro Day
With the NFL Draft approaching — this year's draft begins on April 25 — Dineen is in a situation where he has to prove himself once again. It's not unlike the challenge he faced entering college in the first place, especially as he's heard he could be a Day 3 selection or go undrafted entirely, the linebacker recently told a small group of reporters at a KU football practice.

Thoughts from Bill Self as the Jayhawks arrive in Salt Lake
KU basketball has arrived in Utah for the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament. While many expected the Jayhawks to begin closer to home and then branch out — at least before a couple of late-season losses — the opposite ended up being true.

Players to watch in the NCAA Tournament spotlight
While most college basketball fans tune in to watch their teams in the NCAA Tournament, there are two other things that get them keeping basketball on the tube even when the old alma mater isn't playing.

Potential upsets in the NCAA Tournament's first round
And it's why millions will tune into the NCAA Tournament's first round to watch games that, on the surface, might not appear to be the most enticing. In a single-elimination tournament, anything can happen. The favorite can miss shots, turn the ball over, suffer defensive lapses. And after a full week of hearing how it's a simple stepping stone for a higher seeded team, the underdog can play out of its mind.
