Well that was a brutal weekend...
Poll will be out this evening.
Kansas Men's Basketball
While the victory's significance figures to have a long and lasting impact on SDSU's big picture, their ability to enjoy of the moment came down to two things — offensive rebounds and post defense.
The latter showed up early and often, as the Aztecs sent waves of defenders at KU's big men every time they touched the ball inside. Fisher said that had been a staple of his at every coaching stop and something his current team has become great at despite getting away from it for a few years recently.
“I thought, of course, our offense was totally inept, in large part because they really guard,” Self said of the No. 21-ranked (12-1) Aztecs. “There was definitely a lid (on basket), the biggest lid was they really guard. We made five shots outside of six inches — four threes (in 16 tries) and Frank (Mason) made a long two. Those are the only shots we made that were not layups. It’s hard to win if can’t make the defense pay for sagging.”
An argument could be made that come March, Kansas will have improved at a faster pace than San Diego State, but the Aztecs left no question as to which team is playing better basketball in January.
Kansas Women's Basketball
The game was marred late when Kansas freshman guard Keyla Morgan had a seizure and was down face-first on the floor after shooting a ball with 1:18 left in the game. Morgan was tended to for several minutes, at one point wildly kicking both legs, before being put on a stretcher and taken off the court.
Morgan had multiple seizures while in high school in California, but Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said it is the first time Morgan has had any such issues with the Jayhawks.
“It’s scary for all of us,” Henrickson said. “At least I get to be out there and I can hear her talk, see that she’s squeezing her hands and she can move her toes a little bit. ... She’s in a great place for medical care and they’ll evaluate her at the hospital, and we’ll just wait to hear if we can take her home tonight.”
