U.S. military leaders are learning to adapt to the complexities of modern wars of insurgency, an Army general said during an appearance Wednesday night in Lawrence. Insurgent organizations such as al-Qaida know they can’t defeat the United States in a conventional war, so they resort to terrorism, said Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, commanding general at Fort Leavenworth’s Combined Arms Center, which oversees the Army’s professional military education centers throughout the country.

If Brandon Rush has his say, he’ll not only dress, but also play in today’s 7 p.m. home game against Washburn. “I’m dying to play … but it’s not my decision. If it was up to me, I’d say go ahead, but it’s not up to me. No matter what … it’s going to be pretty soon,” said Rush, who has made a steady comeback from June 1 ACL surgery.

Brandon Rush was the story of the night, though, playing all 12 of his minutes before the half and resting in the second stanza. He was active and unafraid, finishing with seven points, three rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal. Rodrick Stewart also showed to be a valuable replacement in game one without Sherron Collins. He had nine points, four rebounds, four assists and an emphatic blocked shot at the end. KU is off now until the night before Thanksgiving (next Wednesday), when the Jayhawks host Northern Arizona for the second straight year. Tip time will be 7 p.m.
