The Rock Chalkboard

Everything Bill Self said after KU basketball's win over Kansas State
Kansas basketball scored the second-most points ever in a Sunflower Showdown in its 102-83 win over Kansas State on Tuesday. The highest point total came in 2002 when KU scored 103 points. Both teams traded blows early in the game but KU quickly took control. KU posted 53 points in the first half, tying its season-high. The Jayhawks finished the game shooting 64.1 percent from the field, which was also a season-high. On the other end, K-State shot 47.1 percent from the field and the Wildcats made 11 3s.

Kansas was 'cooking' with its fast-paced offense vs. K-State
Jalen Wilson and Dajuan Harris didn’t waste any time once the ball fell through their own basket. Harris sprinted up the court after receiving the inbound pass from Wilson and dribbled the ball once. On the other side of the floor, Ochai Agbaji cut to the basket. Harris, who had only bounced the ball only once but was already one step over half-court, floated an alley-oop pass to Agbaji. The senior finished at the rim with a flashy layup, sealing two points for Kansas before Kansas State's defense even got set.

Kansas Jayhawks' Offense Goes Off in 102-83 Win Over K-State - Blue Wings Rising
No comeback was needed tonight. That’s because the Kansas Jayhawks’ offense went into juggernaut mode on its way to a 102-83 victory over Kansas State on Tuesday. Part of it was that K-State’s defense was a bit like Bruce Weber’s mask on his chin; there, but not really doing its job. But that’s not fully respecting how well Kansas played.

The two words Bill Self has eliminated from his vocabulary
Year after year, KU shot about 30 percent of its shots from three, never wavering more than a few percentage points.

That was … until the last two seasons.

Off Campus: Lawrence, Kansas | Bandcamp Daily
Lawrence has that effect on young people. Just west of Kansas City, Missouri on Interstate 70, the home to the University of Kansas is a beacon of freedom of expression and progressive politics in this stiflingly conservative state. “I’ve lived in Kansas all my life,” says Danny Pound, frontman for recently-reunited power-pop eccentrics Vitreous Humor. “Two-thirds of this state is a wasteland. But Lawrence is where the weirdos land.”

A Locomotive for Kalispell - Flathead Beacon
Railroaders and railroad enthusiasts are a picky bunch — I should know since I’m among the latter. In the years leading up to the construction of the Kalispell Parkline, now on track to open this spring, civic leaders decided that they wanted to display a locomotive along the trail as a nod to the city’s railroad past. After all, if it weren’t for the arrival of the Great Northern Railway on January 1, 1892, Kalispell might not even exist today — or at least it wouldn’t exist in its current form.

Webb Space Telescope Might Be Able To Detect Other Civilizations by Their Air Pollution
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), launched last December, has been slowly powering up its instruments and unfurling its sunshield, and is now in the process of aligning its mirrors in preparation for operation. Within a few months, the most powerful space telescope ever built is going to set its sights on the stars. Astronomers are hoping that what JWST sees will change the way we understand our universe, just as the Hubble Space Telescope did decades before.
