The Day After: Advancement in the NCAA Tournament

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/20/kansas-basketball-vs-new-mexico-state/110291/ It's been a while since I remember seeing the Kansas University basketball team play such a care-free first-round NCAA Tournament game. Typically, in recent years, the Jayhawks have been a little tight and struggled to get going during the early rounds. But that was not the case during Friday's ...

The Day After: Edged out by Iowa State

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/14/kansas-basketball-v-isu-big-12-tournament/110171/ We'll never know how Bill Self reacted behind closed doors but here's guessing he took Saturday's 70-66 Big 12 title game loss to Iowa State pretty hard. Not just because KU lost and not even because it lost a game it probably should've won. But because for a half ...

The Day After: Battering the Bears

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/13/kansas-v-baylor-big-12-touranment/110129/ Three games in three days... That's what the Jayhawks will have played following Saturday's Big 12 championship game against Iowa State, a destination they reached with a 62-52 victory over fourth-seeded Baylor in Friday's semifinals. There was some talk among fans about whether KU, which is banged up at ...

The Day After: Scorned Frogs

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/12/kansas-basketball-v-tcu-big-12-tournament/110110/ There was very little pretty basketball involved in Thursday's 64-59 victory by top-seeded Kansas over No. 9 seed TCU in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. But even as hard as it was to watch the game through all of the whistles and mistakes, ...

The Day After: Almost at Oklahoma

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/07/kansas-basketball-v-oklahoma/110054/ Whether you want to talk about the defensive breakdown in the final seconds or the fact that a short-handed KU team nearly walked out of Lloyd Noble Center on Saturday with a surprising victory, the so-called meaningless final game of the regular season gave us plenty of material. The ...

Spring dates and other KU football notes

Matt Tait

With temperatures warming and March Madness nearly upon us, those in the Kansas University football program have turned their eyes toward upcoming spring practices. First-year KU coach David Beaty announced earlier this week that the Jayhawks would kick off their 15-practice spring schedule on March 24. Beaty's first spring in ...

Former KU pole vaulter Jordan Scott going for gold… and green

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/apr/19/253504/ For most people, the next summer Olympics, set for 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, remain in the distant future. But not for former Kansas University pole vaulter Jordan Scott, a Watkinsville, Georgia, native and 2011 KU grad who hopes to make the U.S. Olympic team for the first ...

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 ...
