  1. Turnovers, Joel Embiid’s back major concerns for No. 5 Kansas

    Mar 2, 2014, 12:38 AM EDT

    Kansas v Texas Tech

    On Saturday night, No. 5 Kansas went into Stillwater and lost to Oklahoma State 72-65, and while it saved the Cowboys’ season, it more or less meant nothing to Kansas. Nothing at all. The Jayhawks clinched the outright Big 12 title on Saturday evening with Kansas State knocked off No. 15 Iowa State. If they…

    In today’s Roundtable, we will each make a pick as to who is the most important player in the National Title race. Rob Dauster: This pick is easy: Keith Appling. I’ve been saying it all season long. If Michigan State can get healthy, they’re going to enter the NCAA tournament as one of, if not…

  3. Andrew Wiggins, Perry Ellis stand out in No. 6 Kansas’ win over Iowa State

    Andrew Wiggins’ performance on Saturday night against TCU was seen as a step forward and rightfully so, despite the fact that the Horned Frogs have yet to win a game in Big 12 play. In scoring his then-career high 27 points Wiggins played with the assertiveness that many have been clamoring for, refusing to simply…

  4. No. 15 Kansas beats No. 9 Oklahoma despite a lack of Andrew Wiggins

    Jan 18, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT

    Joel Embiid, Markel Brown

    In a game that has been billed for months — literally — as a battle between Andrew Wiggins and Marcus Smart, the two favorites for National Player of the Year back in November were fairly forgettable. Smart was 3-for-14 from the floor, but as he tends to do, he put together an impressive all-around performance,…

  5. How concerned should Kansas fans be after Jayhawk loss to San Diego State?

    Jan 5, 2014, 8:50 PM EDT

    San Diego St v Kansas

    So that was ugly. There really isn’t much else to say about the performance that No. 16 Kansas had in their 61-57 loss to No. 21 San Diego State on Sunday night. The Jayhawks shot 29.8% from the floor, a number that didn’t work its way about 25% until late in the second half. They…

  6. 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…

  7. Kansas moves freshman point guard Frank Mason into starting lineup

    In two of Kansas’ three games at the Battle 4 Atlantis last weekend, freshman point guard Frank Mason played well. Overall he averaged 9.7 points and 2.0 assists per contest, reaching double figures in games against Wake Forest (13 points) and Villanova (12). With the recent run of play and his work in practice, head…

  8. Andrew Wiggins impresses, yet was too passive in win over Louisiana-Monroe

    If we are paying attention to individual play in the opening night of the college basketball season, the nation’s eyes were in three different gyms to watch the top three freshman perform: Kentucky’s Julius Randle, Duke’s Jabari Parker, and Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins. Randle and Parker both impressed in their college debuts, and Wiggins did just…

  11. 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…

  13. Naadir Tharpe is the hero as No. 9 Kansas downs No. 14 Oklahoma State in double OT

    Feb 21, 2013, 12:23 AM EDT

    tharpe

    Kansas’ biggest weapon down the stretch Wednesday night against No. 14 Oklahoma State should have been freshman Ben McLemore, a blossoming star who showed earlier in the season against Iowa State that he can take a big shot in the clutch. But it wasn’t McLemore this time. In fact, McLemore took just three shots in…

  14. Kansas’ Naadir Tharpe finds motivation in newborn daughter

    I’m not a parent, but I’ve heard a lot of parents I know say that a child gives you more motivation to do better in life. Mainly because you’re no long living for just yourself or other adults. According to an article by Gary Bedore of KUSports.com, sophomore Naadir Tharpe is taking that approach when…
