Notes
November 7, 2004
Kansas’ Simien, Langford all-league
November 7, 2004
Wayne Simien, Kansas University’s 6-foot-9, 255-pound senior power forward from Leavenworth, was named Big 12 Conference Preseason Player of the Year in a vote of league coaches.
Langford often overlooked
Small forward quietly climbing KU career charts
November 7, 2004
CBS Sportline’s list of the country’s top small forwards does not include Kansas University senior Keith Langford.
Lee driven to finish with flourish
Guard worked hard in offseason to improve court skills
November 7, 2004
Mom’s home cooking caused Michael Lee to put on 10 unwanted pounds during the summer of 2003 — the summer he spent rehabilitating a knee injury in his hometown of Portland, Ore.
Miles primed for final campaign
Floor general improved dramatically in first three years at KU
November 7, 2004
Of Kansas University point guard Aaron Miles, Lindy’s College Basketball magazine remarked in its preseason issue: “Playmaker on the ‘It seems like he’s been in college forever’ team.” Miles hadn’t seen that commentary, but he heard about it.
Simien tired of talking about injuries
Big man hopes ailments thing of past
November 7, 2004
It depends on whom you ask, really. On one hand, Kansas University coach Bill Self thinks his big man, Wayne Simien, played much of his junior season as an injured forward, dealing with a groin tweak that just wouldn’t go away.
Hawkins happy at Kansas
November 7, 2004
Rumors circulated late last season that Jeff Hawkins would transfer to NCAA Div. II Emporia State in the hopes of garnering lots of playing time. Hawkins, Kansas University’s happy reserve point guard from Kansas City, Kan., couldn’t — and still can’t — understand where such gossip comes from.
Niang happy he stayed at Kansas
Fan reaction reinforces junior made right decision not to transfer
November 7, 2004
On campus, in Allen Fieldhouse, even in Canada where he played basketball over Labor Day weekend, Moulaye Niang feels the love from Kansas University’s men’s basketball fans.
Giddens grew as rookie
November 7, 2004

Galindo ‘can really shoot the ball’
Versatile freshman’s trademark: unusual high-arching shot

Shortly after Alex Galindo arrived in Lawrence he joked with Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self, telling him his favorite Puerto Rican was finally here.
Giles followed circuitous route
Freshman forward came to KU after tapping Miami
November 7, 2004
No doubt there aren’t many recruiting journeys, if any, longer than Seattle to Miami — a round-trip flight that stretches to a duration of about 12 hours. Yet C.J. Giles eagerly made that wearying junket during the fall of 2003, lured by the prospect of the balmy weather at the southern tip of the Florida peninsula.
Jackson true bruiser
Freshman gives KU big body inside
November 7, 2004
With the possible exception of Jeff Graves, Kansas University’s men’s basketball team hasn’t had an imposing body underneath recently, a big bruiser who will knock opponents to the floor by simply putting a gentle hip into him.

“Manhattan.” When playing word association, Kansas University freshman guard Russell Robinson may not immediately think of purple and silver Wildcats — at least not yet. It may take him awhile to think of the Little Apple.
Experience aids Bahe
Sophomore might be ‘too good’ to sit
November 7, 2004
Something about Nick Bahe really has impressed Kansas University coach Bill Self this preseason. It’s his attitude — and it’s not hard to tell why.

Matter of justice
November 7, 2004
Democrats must look outside Washington
November 7, 2004
Sam Rayburn, the great mid-20th century Democratic speaker of the House, was noted for a line he used on the more obtuse members of his party who failed to learn the lesson of a political setback. “There’s no education in the second kick of a mule,” he would say.

Appreciate parents before it’s too late
November 7, 2004
While window-shopping in New York City I saw an old gold watch that reminded me of one my father gave me when I graduated from college. It was engraved with the simple inscription “Love, Dad.” But it was stolen during a burglary years ago and I hadn’t thought much of it or the inscription since. I always knew my dad loved me. I took it for granted. He was supposed to. I was his son. I’m always a bit shocked when I run into people who had a very different experience. The truth is not all dads love their kids and even those who do don’t always express it. I had no idea how lucky I was.
