"Embiid joined Hall of Famers Allen Iverson and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players in club history with multiple games of 50 points or more, while getting at least 50 points and 10 rebounds in the fewest minutes of any NBA player since 1955, according to Elias."

I am guessing when Wilt scored 100 points and 25 rebounds in 1962 it was faster then J.Embiid . Wilt had 41 at halftime in that game. Sorry Elias...

My concern is how do you find that the NCAA's investigative work is not accurate without doing your own investigation? ...

Vick needs to learn to fake a 3 point shot and drive to the basket. I can't remember when I have seen Vick use a shot fake and drive. The way teams are guarding him, a simple shot fake would leave him wide open for a drive and dish...Maybe he will get one for Xmas ....

Congrats to the team for a great win and for the 14th straight Big 12 title. It is amazing to me that we can win an away game against a top 10 team with only 4 starters contributing. Vic was almost a total no-show for this game... Played 39 minutes and went 1 for 5 from the field, 0 for 3 from the 3 point line, did not shoot a free-throw, no offensive and only 1 defensive rebound, had 0 assists, 1 turnover, 1 block shot and 2 steals. in 39 minutes !!!! i watched his entire game and I couldn't believe how little effort this Junior player showed in this important game. I am totally baffled as to what has happened to this promising player.

Svi if he can learn to have a better grip on the ball and stop shying away from the basket when driving the ball downhill. Svi should by this point in his basketball courier be able to grab and hold onto the basketball. I see far to many times he loses his grip on the ball when bumped or even not bumped. Rebounding should be easier for Svi after 4 years at KU. Svi has far to many balls go off his fingers to play at the next level. Svi is close, but still not showing the strength he will need in the Pros. Preston may have to body but only time will tell if he has the talent...

The NBA plays 3 games per week and at 48 minutes per game that a total of 144 minutes. College basketball plays on average 2 games per week at 40 minutes per game thats 80 minutes... You can't tell me young men 18 to 22 years of age are too tired to play. The average NBA player plays around 35 minutes per game. With 3 games per week that over 100 minutes per week. Yes they only play 35 minutes of the 48 minute games but that certainly play more minutes per week (25) then college players who play the full 80 minutes. I think with a long timeouts commercial breaks in college basketball there is plenty of rest for the young men playing today. Excuses are easy to find when you needs one. The bottom line with this team is not fatigue but falls to turnovers, lapses in defense, poor shooting and missed foul shots. In the OU game the Jayhawk's were 10 of 32.( 31,25% ) -12 of 32 ( 37.5 % ) wins the game. There will be no Hack-a- Dok if we take care of business and do our jobs before the last 5 minutes of the game. I feel like we gave this game away and not at the foul line but by not taking care of business and knocking down shots that we can make day in and day out. Game over ... don't let it happen again. We have 4 starting guards who can make 3 point shots its time to step up and knock them down in the first half so we don't end up with any chance of Hack-a-Dok at the end of the game...

Maybe we would have been better off the give the Preston investigation to the NCAA from day one. The fact that it took KU Compliance department 2 months should be a sign of a bigger problem. At this point I think the NCAA is speaking volumes that they have no interest in seeing KU get any playing time from Preston. Sad part is the young man is paying for a decision I would bet he had nothing to do with making at all. So you punish the school, the student, the fans and the family. Makes perfect NCAA sense. After the North Carolina no punishment decision the NCAA is worthless as far as credibility anyway. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/13/sp...

NCAA = North Carolina Amnesty Association Not likely they will act expectantly on anything or any one. K.U.'s internal investigation took far to long with a multi-million dollar program at stake. If the athletic and "compliance" department are this slow there need to be serious changes at the university level. How hard can it be to keep tabs on just over a dozen basketball players an their obvious areas a possible non-compliance issues? It's past time to step up and admit that changes need to happen and happen fast. RCJH.
