Wearing blue throwback uniforms, Kansas University got back to its pre-Texas ways in thumping Colorado Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse, 69-45, in front of several KU hoops alumni in town to celebrate the program’s 110th birthday. Mario Chalmers led the way for KU with 13 points, including a three-of-five showing from three-point range. KU, which had been 4-of-26 from deep in the past two outings, went 8-of-19 Saturday from beyond the arc. Chalmers also had five assists, two blocks and two steals to his name. Darnell Jackson was the only other Jayhawk to score in double figures for the Jayhawks (12 points), who were an efficient 24-of-50 from the floor. Sasha Kaun and Darrell Arthur each scored eight for KU, while Brandon Rush chipped in seven.

Travis Karr is headed back to work this morning, and you’ll have to forgive him for hoping for a relatively calm day once his shift begins at 7 a.m. sharp. “I want to go about a normal day again - or whatever is normal, for us,” said Karr, who grew up in Lawrence and now works as a firefighter-paramedic in DeKalb, Ill. “I want to get back to the normal stuff.” Thursday afternoon, Karr’s work was far from normal.
