The Rock Chalkboard

Media buzzes about Kansas' first-half explosion vs. Milwaukee
And while that performance remains elusive, it would be hard for Kansas to play much better than it did in the first minutes of the Jayhawks' 95-68 victory over Milwaukee Tuesday night. Kansas came out firing from the outside — the Jayhawks made 8-fo-13 3-pointers to start off the game — but were hardly one-dimensional as well, with Devon Dotson continuing to attack the rim with reckless abandon and Udoka Azubuike casually tossing up a 15-point, 17-rebound effort without missing a single shot. And while the second half certainly gave Self something to complain about after the game, the damage was already done in a game where both Dotson and Ochai Agbaji topped the Jayhawks with 22 points.
