SOUND OFF
January 22, 1996
Was the photograph on Page 1 of the Sports section of Sunday’s newspaper (Jan. 7) computer-enhanced or in some other way unusual? It was a striking photograph. “We received several nice comments about staffer Earl Richardson’s action shot from the KU-SMU basketball game,” said Bill Snead, Journal-World deputy editor. “All of the images in the Journal-World are scanned electronically, but by policy, we don’t enhance or change the basic characteristics or content of a photo.

January 22, 1996
A look at the final numbers will reveal that neither Kansas junior guard Jerod Haase nor freshman forward Paul Pierce scored in double figures Monday night.

BASKETBALL
January 22, 1996
After falling behind No. 19 Oklahoma State early in Sunday’s game, the Kansas women’s basketball team must have had flashbacks to Friday’s disappointing loss to Oklahoma. The Jayhawks didn’t come out sharp, trailed 18-12 halfway through the first half and could have easily conceded another loss at home.

KU DECLINE WITH THREES CONTINUESCHUCK WOODLING COL.
January 22, 1996
Notes and quotes while wondering if Oklahoma’s Ryan Minor will come out of his puzzling shooting slump tonight … If it seems like Kansas isn’t shooting three-point goals as accurately as it once did, you’re right. Three years ago, KU shot 40.8 percent from three-point range. Two years ago, that percentage dipped to 37.9. Last year it fell to 35.0. This year the Jayhawks are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc …
