    Mar 5, 2014, 5:36 PM EDT

    jayhawks

    Throughout the season college basketball programs have no shortage of visitors, from former players coming back to visit to famous personalities who may not have as deep of a connection to the program. And while these moments can be fun, they also can serve as a time to learn. Visitors who have experienced success in…

  12. Kansas’ facilities just got a bit more deluxe

    Feb 25, 2014, 4:23 PM EDT

    Bill Self

    It is not like Kansas is lacking in recruiting advantages. The team just won their tenth consecutive Big 12 regular season title, and Allen Fieldhouse is regularly cited as one of the best fan experiences in Division I — countless recruits visiting The Phog have been swayed to become a Jayhawk based on the overall…

  13. No. 5 Kansas locks up 10th straight Big 12 title, an incredible feat

    Feb 24, 2014, 11:52 PM EDT

    Oklahoma v Kansas

    Naadir Tharpe scored 12 of his 19 points in the final six minutes, adding five assists and just a single turnover while shooting 6-for-7 from the floor as No. 5 Kansas knocked off Oklahoma, 83-75, earning the Jayhawks at least a share of their 10th straight Big Ten title. I’ll get back to that in…

  14. Kansas center Joel Embiid won’t play Saturday against TCU

    Feb 14, 2014, 5:53 PM EDT

    Joel Embiid

    In the aftermath of No. 7 Kansas’ loss at Kansas State on Monday night, head coach Bill Self noted that freshman center Joel Embiid is a bit “beat up.” Dealing with nagging knee and back issues, Embiid didn’t play as well as the Jayhawks would have hoped against Kansas State. And with the freshman taking…

  15. No. 6 Kansas receives reminder about defense in loss at No. 25 Texas

    Feb 1, 2014, 7:29 PM EDT

    self

    Even with their play through the first seven games of Big 12 play, it’s difficult to think that No. 6 Kansas was going to run through its 18-game conference slate without a blemish. So in that regard, their 81-69 loss at No. 25 Texas doesn’t mean that the sky’s falling or that the Jayhawks are…

  16. Andrew Wiggins goes for 27 in No. 8 Kansas’ win over TCU

    Jan 25, 2014, 11:46 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    Kansas freshman wing Andrew Wiggins has been under the proverbial microscope all season long, with every one of his performances arguably analyzed more than any other freshman in the current “one and done” era. One of the biggest complaints about Wiggins was a lack of assertiveness, with him at times giving the appearance of a…

  17. Kansas in planning stages of a $17.5 million apartment complex for men’s and women’s basketball players

    Jan 10, 2014, 7:45 PM EDT

    Bill Self

    In college basketball recruiting, programs are always looking for an edge. In Kansas’ case, sometimes it isn’t enough having one of the top coaches in the game, state of the art facilities, and one of the most rabid and loyal fan bases in the country — not to mention, being a perennial top team that…

    No. 20 Kansas opened Big 12 play with a 90-83 win at Oklahoma on Wednesday night, with Wayne Selden scoring 24 points and Perry Ellis adding 22 and 11 rebounds to lead the way. The game represented a “new beginning” of sorts for Bill Self’s young team, with their non-conference schedule now complete and the…

  19. Two losses in a row? Three in 11 days? Oh well. Don’t give up on Kansas just yet

    Dec 10, 2013, 9:53 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    I wrote this on Saturday after No. 13 Kansas lost to Colorado at the buzzer. The gist of it? Kansas fans should not be too disappointed about the loss, that the more important news was that Andrew Wiggins finally started to play like the Andrew Wiggins we all told you about. I could pretty much…

  20. Champions Classic Preview: Hyped freshmen, four top five teams, best event ever?

    Nov 12, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Tuesday is an indisputably great day for college hoop heads around the country, as we not only get 30 straight hours of hoops, but the marathon session of basketball is capped off with the Champions Classic, the single best in-season event ever. That’s right. I said it. I’ll even take it a step further: I…

  23. Naadir Tharpe suspended for Kansas’ season-opener after playing in a summer league game

    Oct 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Howard v Kansas

    The Kansas Jayhawks have plenty of talent and potential, but also a good amount of questions this season. One of the concerns for KU — as it was last year — is the point guard position. After splitting time with Elijah Johnson as a sophomore, Naadir Tharpe was expected to take on the role as…

  24. Kansas will look for Andrew Wiggins to score in the post

    Oct 29, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins, Niko Roberts

    Andrew Wiggins and Wayne Selden will form an athletic duo for Kansas that will show no pity on rims and backboards this season, as both are more than capable of powerful dunks. Bill Self even altered his game plan against Texas Tech during Wiggins’ official visit to show the nation’s top prospect how many alley-oops…
