The Shot Heard ‘Round the Big 12: Perry Ellis Surges at Crucial Time

Bill Self preaches constantly that the layup is the easiest shot to make in basketball. It’s a shot that any player who’s good enough to start for Kansas should be able to hit 99% of the time. It wasn’t until KU’s best player missed one that the real spark was lit. When Perry Ellis missed a layup in the last 2 seconds of the Kansas vs. West Virginia game on February 16...

Perry Ellis Lifts KU over Longhorns

The way the Jayhawks beat the Longhorns on Saturday night comes with the typical disclaimers — playing a bad team that might not make the tournament, struggling with length, continuing with the drive, and long-range shots not falling.

Kansas Basketball: Perry Ellis leading KU through Orlando Classic

Whenever Kansas basketball Head Coach Bill Self is asked a question about junior power forward Perry Ellis, he almost always answers the question with a very predictable answer, in which Self will gush over Ellis’ “natural” scoring ability, then discuss how Ellis needs to be more assertive and aggressive on both sides of the court.
