Jayhawks match up against progressing Towson Tigers

For a team that won just one game two seasons ago, the Towson Tigers are rising quickly. Towson (3-1) travels to Allen Fieldhouse to face the No. 2 Jayhawks at 7 p.m. on Friday night.

Bates: Airing of grievances, Allen Fieldhouse edition

Today we take a brief hiatus from literature and focus on another topic I’m passionate about: KU basketball games. Allen Fieldhouse is the greatest sports venue without a doubt; what sets it apart is the combination of tradition and passion from students and alumni who together create an electric environment. This season has been more […]

Tharpe must lead Jayhawks to success

Tharpe must lead Jayhawks to success

Former Kansas point guard Elijah Johnson once compared the Jayhawks’ offense to a Bugatti. An exciting, high-powered, goose bump inducing ride that causes pedestrians to pull a double-take if they’re lucky enough to see one speed by. Johnson believed his role was to drive this car and direct it through a potential 40-game season. Last […]

Carpenter: Kansas basketball poised to win Big 12

The last time the Jayhawks began the season as something other than the reigning Big 12 champs, “tweeting” was something only a bird did and Andrew Wiggins was in the fourth grade. We’ve held three presidential elections in that span and watched George Mason, VCU, Butler and Wichita State go to five more Final Fours […]

For 28 years Kansas fans have gathered at Allen Fieldhouse for Late Night In The Phog in early October to catch a first glimpse at the latest addition to the Jayhawk history books. Year 29 will most certainly rival all of those that came before it. “From what I can tell this is probably the […]

Before Andrew Wiggins’ feet even touched Naismith Drive when he made his decision to commit to Kansas and Bill Self on May 14, he was pegged as “Maple Jordan,” and the “best recruit since” discussion began. After weeks of conversing among message boards, recruiting analysts and other experts on where the highly coveted Canadian recruit […]
