Defense is great, but the team that scores the most points wins. We have a stretch of very important games coming up, with teams that also know how to play defense. We need more consistency from the bench and the three other starters (Dok and Dotson excluded). I really like this team and think they could make a lot of noise in the tourney. But, we need to handle the rest of the Big 12 schedule starting with WVU. There are two upcoming games that are not a give me by any means. In fact, the games with WVU, and Baylor we are not favored to win. We can hope that someone will knock off Baylor and keep us in the running for the Big 12 championship. RCJH!

So Silvio gets 12 games and McCormick gets 2. Yet an injured player sitting on the bench who threw the first punch is suspended for a few games that he wouldn't be playing anyway. He seemed to be anything but injured as he attacked KU player. Seems like another Grayson Allen debacle who only had one game off for attempting to injure other players purposely.
Was any of this right, no. But to put the lion's share of blame on KU when K-State started the punching, ridiculous. It was their unsportsmanlike conduct that started this entire folly. Weber makes excuses, Self takes ownership.

I seem to remember a similar thing happening during a K-State game in Allen Fieldhouse a few years ago involving Brennan Greene. When he took the ball down the floor and dunked it, even though the game was already in the books. Then K-State did the same thing to us on their home floor. Poor form no matter how you look at it.

Matt Tait,What is the story on Jalen Wilson? Is he going to be able to play this year at all, or will they redshirt him?

Brett,When the Women's sports teams start contributing to the pot as does Men's Basketball, then maybe they will get their own dorms and meal plans. Sad, but it is a fact of life, that money rules the roost.

Looks to me like NCAA is trying to legitimize their existence. They need to prove that their power is greater than anyone else. I'm sure there are many programs out there with much worst infractions than they have accused us of. Duke just makes me sick. You know that there are shady dealings going on in that program. Mike Krzyzewski can't be as squeaky clean as people think. Will be interesting to see what transpires.

Watched his mix tape, this kid is a baller. Reminds me a lot of Dotson, quick, can get to the rim, takes contact and can finish and the kid can jump! Heck, when I played BB in high school, we were not allowed to dunk the ball, it was a technical foul. This kid makes it look easy. Glad to have you on board! RCJH!

Silvio is going to have a break out season this year, and will be in the first round of the NBA draft next June. He has great attitude and dedication to the Kansas basketball program, and it will show in his play. Kansas fans love you! RCJH!

Huge disappointment. Dedric should have stayed at Kansas another year, and would have jumped his draft stock considerably, especially if he had a year like last year. Oh well, he took the gamble and lost.

This is going to be an exciting team next year. They have all the pieces in place to mop up the floor in the Big 12, and make a deep run in the NCAA tournament. Can hardly wait for next year!
