The Day After: Revenge against West Virginia

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/03/kansas-basketball-v-west-virginia/109925/ West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said it best when trying to explain how his Mountaineers lost Tuesday night's game at Allen Fieldhouse, 76-69 in overtime to a Kansas team that did not lead one time in the entire second half. Forearms on the table, shoulders slumped, head staring down, ...

The Day After: Out-toughing Texas

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/feb/28/kansas-basketball-v-texas/109897/ Now that's the kind of basketball game you expect to see in March, and the Jayhawks and Longhorns brought it to us a day early. Tough, physical basketball. A lot at stake for both teams. Pressure mounting with every tick. Multiple guys making a variety of plays on both ...

Time frame for Cliff Alexander's return remains a mystery

Matt Tait

Very little public information has been released about the situation surrounding Kansas University freshman forward Cliff Alexander, who sat out of Saturday's 69-64 victory over Texas at Allen Fieldhouse after the NCAA made KU officials aware of an eligibility concern surrounding Alexander. Following Saturday's game, KU coach Bill Self admitted ...

A tip of the cap to KU's Jamari Traylor for role in Monday night's court-storming fiasco at K-State

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2015/feb/24/287406/ Lost, at least to some, in the aftermath of K-State's latest court-storming frenzy and all of the opinions and hot takes that followed it, was the admirable restraint shown by Kansas University forward Jamari Traylor. I like Traylor. He's a friendly guy who has his limitations as a basketball ...

The Day After: Punked by the Purple People

Matt Tait

Leading up to Monday's game at Kansas State, I told anyone who would listen that the outcome of that game would tell me a lot about this Kansas basketball team. Go into Manhattan and win and life is good and the Jayhawks would be well on their way toward wrapping ...

K-State court-storming drawing reviews from several organizations

Matt Tait

The Big 12 Conference, both Kansas University and Kansas State University, as well as the K-State Police Department all have spent the early part of Tuesday reviewing the court-storming scene that turned wild following the K-State men's basketball team's 70-63 upset victory over No. 8 Kansas Monday night at Bramlage ...

Former KU LB Ben Heeney shines at NFL Combine

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2014/oct/11/287352/ During the several weeks he spent in Florida training for the NFL scouting combine, former Kansas University linebacker Ben Heeney's main goal was to prepare himself to run a 40-yard dash time in the 4.6-second range. Sunday, on the Lucas Oil Stadium turf in Indianapolis, Heeney did one better ...

The Day After: Taking down TCU

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/feb/21/kansas-basketball-v-tcu/109742/ There was nothing about Saturday's match-up with TCU that made the excite-o-meter go off. It wasn't a big game against one of the top challengers in the Big 12, it wasn't hyped up national showdown against a Top 25 team and it wasn't even a game that included a ...

The Day After: Another battle with the Bears

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/feb/14/kansas-basketball-v-baylor/109582/ The Kansas University men's basketball team took an important step toward wrapping up Big 12 title No. 11 in a row on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse, with a 74-64 victory over 16th-ranked Baylor. The reason the victory was important — other than the fact that they're all important — ...
