If we play like we did against Iowa State we win this game. Limit the turnovers. Play sound 3 pt shot defense then we have a good shot

I hate KU and every year wish we would thrash them at home - this year we get it done!

Still waiting for another "Terry Black" moment.

The starting lineup will be different today. More news coming closer to tipoff maybe.

Most meniscus repairs I've heard of, though not many, were usually not released until nearly 3 months after surgery.

This wasn't likely a tournament team anyway. There's no way Drew & staff would rush him back at the expense of possible additional injury. Say what you want about Drew but he loves those kids and would never do anything to jeopardize a potential pro career for Clark.

Chip and Jo are in the house, just sat right behind Baylor bench. Maybe they'll be the good luck charms because we surely need it.

Why is Mark trying to be our leading scorer?

Playing sluggish but with the huge bad news of losing Tristan, they have a lot to overcome. Get better Tristan, Sic 'Em!!!!

i don't know what offense baylor runs. this weird pick and pass thing at the top of the key just puts us in a weird position to rush the last 10 seconds and put up errant shots. anyone with some real basketball knowledge (not just TV watching kind like me ) know what that is?

Mayer got whacked on the head going up for a shot, no call. Bleh.

6 fouls on Baylor, 2 on Kansas and they have gotten 6 "blocks" instead
