No. 11 Jayhawks earn road win at No. 17 Texas

Published January 24, 2015

Facing a Texas team with the type of length and defense that has given Kansas trouble this season, the Jayhawks won 75-62 in Austin, Texas, by riding a couple of backups and a veteran starter. Freshman big man Cliff Alexander saw his shots denied inside often, but stuck with his assertive approach to finish with a team-best 15 points off the bench. Sophomore guard Brannen Greene, meanwhile, added 14 as a substitute on 4-for-5 shooting from three-point range. Junior forward Perry Ellis showed he had learned from previous trips to the paint against UT and scored 14 points while showing solid shot selection. • Box score

City commissioners concerned about email from Wicked Broadband

Published January 22, 2015

Two city commissioners are expressing concern about an e-mail they received Wednesday from the leader of Lawrence-based Wicked Broadband. Commissioners Bob Schumm and Terry Riordan, who both are running for re-election, said the e-mail from Wicked co-owner Joshua Montgomery crossed a line by insinuating that Montgomery could deliver nearly 1,200 votes to their campaigns, if the commissioners approve a $300,000 loan guarantee and other city incentives the company is seeking as part of a project to bring gigabit Internet service to part of Lawrence.
