Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes 11.29.13

A turkey-induced comatose look around today's interwebs.

Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving. If this catches you during Black Friday shopping, enjoy the crowds. If instead you are at/heading into work today, hopefully you can get out early to spend more time with the family.  Of course, watching KU basketball is the perfect family activity.

“On the flip side, I also asked the guys after the game, ‘What can we hang our hat on today?’ The common answer was, ‘Well coach, we’ve got depth.’ I hope we don’t have to play like this all the time. It’s fine if we have to.”

Point guard, Demon Deacons not into moral victories |

Wake Forest (5-1) connected on 55.6 percent of its shots in the second half, as well as six of its 11 three-pointers. But Bzdelik said his team’s 18-for-29 free-throw shooting on the afternoon, and KU’s 15 offensive rebounds (the Jayhawks’ 15 second-chance points in the first half, in particular) kept the Demon Deacons from making national headlines from Imperial Arena.

Opinion: Jayhawks win ugly in paradise |

“I’ve always taken great pride in winning ugly,” Self said. “I think it’s good to win ugly. I’d rather win pretty, but there’s nothing wrong with winning ugly.”

“They are not real big, so they are interchangeable,” Self said. “They at times could play 6-6 at the 4 and 5. Our bigs will have to guard away from the basket. It’ll be a good game. Hopefully we’ll be better because of this today,” he added of an unsatisfactory effort versus 5-1 Wake. “Certainly we have a long night ahead to prepare.”
