Kansas head coach Bill Self discussed the "contact above the shoulders" rule and said that he would not call the reputation the Morris twins may be getting "unfair" at his weekly press conference Thursday, Feb. 17, 2011 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas University seniors Tyrel Reed and Brady Morningstar were named to the Academic All-Big 12 basketball team announced Thursday by the conference office.

Reed was a first-team selection for the third straight year. Freshmen are not eligible. Morningstar was tapped second-team.

Reed graduated in December with a degree in exercise science/pre-physical therapy. He has been accepted into KU Medicine's physical therapy school. Morningstar graduated in May 2010.

To qualify, players must maintain a 3.00 GPA or higher either cumulative or the two previous semesters and must have participated in 60 percent of their team’s scheduled contests.

Congrats to both of these young men (though Brady isn't really that young ;-0 )

Don't forget that Tyrel is up for the Lowe's Senior CLAS award - you can vote for him once a day, every day. http://www.seniorclassaward.com/

You can vote once a day from each computer you have access to as well as a Facebook page. It's really simple, no need to register or provide an e-mail address. Just type in the code, select Tyrel and click.
