Gary Bedore's basketball notebook: KU's Tyshawn Taylor focused on winning

I think that the top 2 kids Ben McLemore and the other top rated kid are waiting to see what the twins do. Something tells me that the twins are going to play for KU next year and with each other on the same team for the last time.

UCLA’s Howland speaks with NCAA

If the clock is running, does it really matter what point of the game a foul is called? If there is less than 1 second left of the clock, is there an open season rule in the NCAA? The refs were calling touch fouls against Kansas all game. Holliday's four point play on a foul called versus Tyshawn Taylor was a questionable call. I did not really see the foul by Tyshawn and a four point play can be a game changer no matter how much time is on the clock. Howland should do a better job of coaching his kids to play the odds the the last shot not dropping and not to foul with less than 5 seconds.

Reaching new height(s): Taller, bulkier guard Elijah Johnson eager to prove himself in 2010-2011

It will be interesting to see how Johnson and Selby play in the backcourt. It will be a good problem I suppose to have a talent build up in then guard position. Reed, Johnson, Selby, Tyshawn.

Harder edge in order

Division 2 Loss. I don't think we want to emmulate Michigan. Perkins will be long gone after Gill can be properly evaluated because he needs more than one game. However, losing to lesser opponents is from either a lack of game planning or a lack of discipline. The KC Cheifs were not a focused team under Herm Edwards.

Raptors acquire Julian Wright

I think Julian's situation is one of the problems with kids going pro before graduation. Unless you are a true phenom like Wall or Rose, you'll be a back up. Mario was lucky that Miami did not have a point when he was drafted. Rush, Shady played the bench for two years and I bet the same for Henry. Julian is making the money, which is why he left the nest early, but is he happier than if he would have played another year at KU and graduated?

Defensive end Travis Stephens dismissed from KU football team

The Great Joe Paterno expects no less from his players. Sounds like the program under Gill is under a great start.

Recruit saga turns ugly

I hope that Kansas fans will always act with dignity. These kids are young and college choice for the top athletes is much more complicated than it was for us regular folks. Those who take cheap shots on the web are cowards. Maybe they should 'man up' and speak up face to face in a situation where their entire life is exposed through the media. "The one that has not sinned, cast the first stone".
I think it would have been fun if Jones chose Kansas. However, I like our current team we have and wish Jones the best.

KU basketball player Chase Buford enters diversion agreement in July DUI case

You'd think that given the level of talent and the limit of playing time that Brady and Chase would not flirt with this kind of trouble or even worse, getting booted from the team.
