The final image of Naadir Tharpe's up-and-down college career apparently will be him dejectedly walking off the floor following a nightmarish performance in Kansas' stunning NCAA tournament loss to Stanford this past March.
Tharpe told CBSSports.com on Wednesday he will forgo his final year of college eligibility and begin his professional career either in the D-League or...

Kansas transfer Andrew White III will visit Notre Dame today (Wednesday) and Thursday, he told SNY.tv.
The 6-foot-6 White also visited Nebraska last week.
“Great visit,” he said. “I met with a lot of people, saw a lot of places around campus, hooped with the guys and had a good time being around the coaching staff.”

Kansas coach Bill Self talks to Campus Insiders’ Shae Peppler about former Jayhawks Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid joining the NBA.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- He was the trophy wife, the bling. Andrew Wiggins did more for Kansas basketball in five minutes on Thursday night than he did in the previous five months combined.
National championship? Done that.
Final Fours? Twice over, son.
Big 12 titles? Ten in a row, baby.
But there was one thing missing in the Bill Self pamphlet, one notable unsaid in the media guide...
Is it possible that Andrew Wiggins may have already won before being selected in the NBA Draft Thursday? I think so. The former Kansas Jayhawks star will be wearing this gorgeous outfit at the draft and I just love it. Look at those colors. Look at that floral pattern. He’s got a full smoking jacket […]
Most basketball fans could safely assume that Andrew Wiggins would be a one-and-done player for Kansas after all of the hype that was heaped on him as a high school player. Joel Embiid wasn’t expected to have the same instant impact, but if not for an unfortunate string of injuries, he may very well be going ahead of Wiggins in tonight’s NBA Draft.
Embiid seems incredibly grateful...
A look at Andrew Wiggins, one of the two strongest candidates to be the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft...
Why he might be No. 1: Wiggins isn't just a great athlete - he has a chance to instantly be one of the top athletes in the NBA. He has a 7-foot wingspan, (at least) a 40-inch vertical and his highlight reel is full of breathtaking dunks and explosive...
It seems that the Kansas Jayhawks were having a practice at Arrowhead Stadium and a handful of fans showed up. Charlie Weis seemed pretty happy with it though calling the turnout “huge” Huge turnout at Arrowhead. Much greater than expected. Boys are ready to compete. This should be fun.

I really doubt any NBA team will listen to word I have to say in this…
But if I know they would, I’d tell them they’re missing out on not drafting Joel Embiid.
JoJo is special and outside of Andrew Wiggins and maybe Jabari Parker, no one in this draft has a chance to be half as special as Embiid in this year’s draft.
If JoJo slips out of the top four picks of the draft, I’ll...
It doesn’t come as any surprise that the national media thinks highly of the Kansas Jayhawks. Still, losing two first round picks and ending up with four top 10 players at their position.
Wayne Selden — No. 5 Shooting Guard
Perry Ellis — No. 3 Power Forward
Kelly Oubre — No. 9 Small Forward
Cliff Alexander — No. 3 Center
The only position where Kansas didn’t come...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Joel Embiid didn't even want to be here. Not really. That's the part about Thursday's little knife-twist that breaks your heart.
You can't shake the feeling that this whole "NBA Draft" thing was everybody's idea but his. You can't shake the feeling that if Big No. 21 had his druthers, he'd still be in Lawrence, dunking on...
Yesterday, we posted that Sporting News named Wayne Selden the No. 5 shooting guard in the nation.
Today, Sporting News picked Perry Ellis as the No. 3 power forward in the 2014-15 season.
Here’s what they said about Perry:
Size: 6-8, 225 pounds
Stats: 13.5 ppg, 6.7 rpg
Andrew Wiggins consumed more oxygen among the Jayhawks than a lot of us realized until the whole...
