The Rock Chalkboard

KU men’s basketball holds off spirited Bahamian national team, 92-87 - KU Sports
Seven-year NBA veteran Buddy Hield lit up the Jayhawks for 18 points in just 16 first-half minutes — a familiar sight for KU fans who once watched him score 46 points in Allen Fieldhouse back in 2016 — before sitting out the second frame. Then, with Hield color-commentating on the KU radio broadcast, the remainder of the Bahamian squad of current and former college players put up a furious second-half effort, drawing a seemingly endless string of fouls and narrowing KU’s lead, once 14, to a two-point margin twice in the fourth quarter. That was thanks to a 15-point quarter from Florida Gulf Coast’s Franco Miller Jr.

Big 12 news provides another boost to KU’s Arizona recruiting - KU Sports
The Jayhawks, who have just one native of the Copper State on their current roster (that would be cornerback Kwinton Lassiter, who actually attended high school in Lawrence at Free State) have earned commitments from four Arizona denizens in the class of 2024 to come join the squad. And according to Rivals, KU’s defensive pass game coordinator Jordan Peterson has been the primary recruiter on all four of Aundre Gibson, Jonathan Kamara, Carter Lavrusky and Deshawn Warner.

Bryant taking ownership as secondary looks to improve - KU Sports

Star Wars Has Misunderstood George Lucas' Sith Rule Of Two For 24 Years
Although Darth Vader was Palpatine's sole apprentice during the original trilogy, Palpatine has recruited the Force-wielding Inquisitors. Likewise, it would later be revealed that he had the Sith Eternal cult and Knights of Ren at the same time well before the events of the sequel trilogy when they both first appeared on screen.
