KU looks to remain atop the Big 12 by moving above .500 on the road

Kansas lacked consistency its last time out, and that's been the case away from home all season. Texas has regained its shooting touch as Isaiah Taylor appears to have broken out of his funk. The No. 11 Jayhawks attempt to remain atop the Big 12 by moving above .500 on the road Saturday, when they visit Taylor and the 17th-ranked Longhorns. Kansas (15-3, 4-1) has won all 10 of its...

Jayhawks' trio of freshmen playing big minutes in Big 12 run

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Now that Big 12 play has rolled around, Kelly Oubre no longer consider himself a freshman. The same goes for Cliff Alexander and Devonte' Graham, two more pieces of the decorated recruiting class that arrived at Kansas last summer. The trio, along with Ukrainian youngster Svi Mykhailiuk, have put several months of practices and games under their belts. Good thing...

No. 1 Kentucky has its way against Missouri, 86-37

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Call it swagger, mojo or simple confidence, top-ranked Kentucky displayed it often against Missouri. The Wildcats' defense was especially impressive, holding the Tigers to a season-low 27 percent shooting. That created a lot of offensive chances and Aaron Harrison took full advantage with five 3-pointers and 16 points, helping Kentucky finally earn a conference...

Indy envy: When drafting QBs, Colts have Luck -- while Chiefs have none at all

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Man, we hate you, Indianapolis. OK, OK, OK, maybe "hate" is too strong a word, too emotional, too much in the moment. We'll just say "envy," all right? We envy you. One of the best quarterbacks of his generation lands in your lap. Then his neck gets all wrong, a season goes down the toilet, and you're looking at the No. 1 pick. Again. And then one of the best...

No. 15 Wichita State routs Bradley 63-43

WICHITA, Kan. -- Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall stood outside of his locker room at halftime Wednesday night and just listened. He didn't hear much. There was a little chatter, with team leader Fred VanVleet leading what little conversation there was. That was the result of his team playing a horrible first half and trailing at halftime for just the second time this season. ...

Wildcats can't keep pace with speedy Bruins, lose 40-35 at Alamodome

SAN ANTONIO -- Kansas State coach Bill Snyder bristled at the thought that TV broadcasters might say the same thing about his Wildcats that they did about Florida State in the Rose Bowl. "We had a TV announcer indicate in another ballgame that a football team had quit, and that's the last thing in the world anybody wants to hear on national TV, I assure you," Snyder said. "I reminded...

Chiefs' Smith suggests he lacked time to throw downfield on final series at Arizona

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's been several days, but I have to admit I'm still completely puzzled by the Chiefs' final sequence of plays as they were trailing Arizona 17-14 on Sunday. Setting the stage: Starting at their own 24-yard line, the Chiefs needed to gain about 38 yards to give kicker Cairo Santos a decent shot at tying the score. They had 69 seconds and no timeouts -- a difficult...

Life doesn't get any easier for Mizzou with visit to No. 22 Oklahoma

With a quick glance at Oklahoma's difficult opening schedule, one might have considered Missouri as a team that would at least pose an interesting threat in its first return to Norman as a nonconference opponent. The Tigers' early season play has done nothing to back that up, and their struggles could carry into the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Friday night against the 22nd-ranked Sooners...

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- When B.J. Finney stepped to the line of scrimmage on Sept. 3, 2011, against Eastern Kentucky, Kansas State's football program was still in disarray. The Wildcats had been to three bowl games the previous eight seasons. They won a Big 12 title in 2003 but hadn't won more eight games or more since then.

Chiefs defensive line still shutting teams down

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kevin Vickerson has been a part of some stellar defensive fronts, whether he was playing next to Albert Haynesworth and Jevon Kearse in Tennessee or Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil in Denver.
