Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2018/jan/20/kansas-basketball-v-baylor/123166/ Down the stretch of Kansas’ claw-it-out home win over Baylor, it seemed like the then-No. 10 Jayhawks couldn’t get a stop. Well, they couldn’t. For a four minute stretch, starting at the seven-minute mark in the second half, the Bears scored on nine — yes, nine — straight possessions, ...

Why KU must do more than try to limit Trae Young's points

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2017/dec/15/321600/ If you think stopping Trae Young from scoring is the best way for No. 10 Kansas to defeat No. 4 Oklahoma this Tuesday, let me present a counterargument in the form of a number: 33.125.

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2018/jan/09/kansas-basketball-v-iowa-state/123006/ It isn’t often a player can score 27 points — a career-high at that — yet the most impressive part of his performance comes elsewhere. Malik Newman’s outburst against Iowa State, an 83-78 Kansas win, was a welcome sign for KU fans. It was the same way for the ...

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2017/dec/21/kansas-basketball-v-stanford/122782/ KU’s biggest issue with Stanford wasn’t going to be *"the"* matchup so much as it was *"a"* matchup. Most KU fans were at least familiar with big man Reid Travis before Thursday’s game, a 75-54 KU win. It wasn’t long ago — just over a calendar year, in fact ...

Dan Dakich fires back at 'uptight and insecure and nuts' KU fans on KC radio station

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2017/dec/20/321733/ Normally, the conversation between a fan and announcer is one-sided. Fans can bark at their TVs, but the announcers will never hear them. Announcers can talk on the broadcast waves, but the fans can’t really respond. Thanks to Twitter, we now know what at least one announcer would say ...

One common thread in KU's losses that has nothing to do with defense

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2017/dec/10/kansas-basketball-v-arizona-state/122674/ The KU defense — and its reputation — took a beating over the last week.

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2017/nov/14/kansas-basketball-v-kentucky-champions-classic/122362/ CHICAGO — The closest Trevon Duval came to sharing a locker room with the Jayhawks, at least by proximity, came on Tuesday night. Deep inside the corridors winding throughout the basement level of United Center, the Duke and KU locker rooms were separated by a matter of feet. After ...

How Svi Mykhailiuk drew the ire of Bill Self against Fort Hays State

Scott Chasen

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2017/nov/07/kansas-basketball-v-fort-hays-state-exhibition/122291/ When Devonte’ Graham lobbed the ball toward Udoka Azubuike, what the crowd at Allen Fieldhouse saw made them cheer.
