Brew: Past Jayhawks excel in NBA

Brew: Past Jayhawks excel in NBA

Kansas Basketball is overrated.  Great, now that I have your attention, I would like to talk about an actual season tip-off that occurred this past Tuesday, the NBA season tip-off.  No, exhibition games do not count towards your regular season record; therefore, basketball season here in Lawrence has not officially started.  Now that I got […]

Fieldhouse Forum Podcast — Episode Three

Fieldhouse Forum Podcast — Episode Three

        Associate Sports Editor Trevor Graff hosts the third installment of the Fieldhouse Forum podcast. On the show today, Kansan basketball beat writers Ryan McCarthy and Geoffrey Calvert. The three discuss the victory over Kansas State in the Sunflower Showdown, College Gameday coming to town for Texas and the Mario Chalmers jersey retirement.

Remembering Kevin Durant’s visit to Allen Fieldhouse: An Oral History

I sat on a wooden bench outside the gift shop of the Library of Congress after a hot, muggy Washington day in July 2008. My mother and brother still searched through the gift shop trying to find a souvenir to take home to Kansas. As I pondered the historical significance of the building I toured, […]

Mario Chalmers was one of the many former KU basketball players that made an appearance at Friday's Late Night in the Phog. Chalmers now plays in the NBA for the Miami Heat.

Chalmers jersey to hang in Allen Fieldhouse rafters

Kansas’ policy is to wait five years after a player has left the program before deciding whether or not to retire their jersey. For Mario Chalmers there didn’t have to be a discussion, there was never a doubt his day would come. That’s just one of the benefits of being a National Championship hero —knocking down a […]

Texas' Kevin Durant shoots over Kansas forward Julian Wright in the first half of the game in Allen Fieldhouse Saturday. Durant, a freshman, scored 25 points in the first half. He finished with 32 points after leaving the game for a few minutes in the second half with an ankle injury.

Durant’s appearance in Lawrence still remembered

Mario Chalmers loved playing against Texas. He scored a career-high 30 points against the Longhorns in the 2008 Big 12 championship game. He hit arguably the biggest shot in Kansas basketball history with his three-pointer against Memphis in the 2008 National Championship game. But a game that might get overlooked is one where he and Kansas […]

Vernon: What does Chalmers’ shot really mean?

What can 10.8 seconds mean? That was my assignment — to find out what Mario Chalmers’ miracle heave means to Bill Self five years later. And I tried to do just that. I really did. But what kept pounding through my head was the fact that Chalmers’ shot, his career, means so much to so […]

Brew: College athletes deserve compensation

Mario Chalmers was robbed. After making the most memorable shot in Kansas basketball history, many reaped profits off his success. Not a dime went Chalmers’ way. I’m sure the $4 million that Chalmers pocketed last year made him more than well-off financially, but the man that played a fairly large role in the Jayhawks’ fifth […]

Kansas' Mario Chalmers celebrates the Jayhawks 80-68 win over Texas in the Big 12 Men's Championship basketball game, Sunday, March 12, 2006, in Dallas. Chalmers was named MVP of the game.

Kansas to retire Chalmers’ jersey against Texas

The Allen Fieldhouse faithful lets out one of its loudest roars each home game when Mario Chalmers’ shot to tie Memphis in the 2008 NCAA title game is replayed during the pregame video. Against Texas on Feb. 16, Chalmers gets to hear those cheers in person. Kansas Athletics announced Thursday that Chalmers’ No. 15 jersey […]

Bickel: Sports allow strangers to connect

Bickel: Sports allow strangers to connect

For a moment, it’s as if time is frozen. The slow tick of the clock couldn’t move any slower. Everyone is silent. For one side, this could be glorious; something unheard of. And for the other, it could mean their hard work throughout the entire 40 minutes of regulation could be over and not mean […]

Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey (3) and Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich (6) battle for the ball during the first half of an NBA basketball game on April 18 in Atlanta. Hinrich finished the regular season with 6.6 points per game.
