Few things are more certain in life that the Kansas basketball program. Players come and go, but the Jayhawks are always one of the best teams in the country. Last season, Bill Self’s team managed well through a “down year” and ended up making the NCAA title game. This season, even after losing their two top scorers from a year ago, the Jayhawks only have a single loss and are an easy favorite to win the Big 12 and take a high tournament seed in March.

I have a confession to make – since my favorite NCAA men’s basketball team, UCF, is currently serving a one-year postseason ban for all sorts of cheating goodness, I’ve been a little less than enthusiastic about the 2012-13 season. However, I did start catching up the other day for the sake of giving some more coverage around these parts, and what I’ve learned is:Kentucky...
As the clock ticked under three minutes and the final media timeout approached, all seemed well for the Kansas Jayhawks. High flying guard Ben McLemore had just flushed a dunk off of an Elijah Johnson lob. Soon, he’d be leaving to an ovation and his night’s work would be done. But, with one cut and roll of the ankle, all had changed.
The accoloades are pouring in for Kansas redshirt freshman guard Ben McLemore.
You had to expect Kansas guard Ben McLemore was going to be recognized after a superb week.
