I'll be curious to see if KU has much motivation in this game as they close out a disappointing season

Mason out. Sigh.

Saving Makai for the Tourney?

Appears so

Is Thamba ever going to learn how to catch a pass down low on the offensive end?
Johnny Bear

Continuing to pile up the fouls. It's KU on their home floor, after all.

And almost all of them have been really good looks.

Yeah 0-10 now... Ouch.

KUs bigs even when we have position just keep scoring like it's nothing in the paint.
Johnny Bear

Why do even try to throw a pass to Thamba down low?? He's never ready for it.
bear2be2
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Butler needs to stop throwing no look passes to Flo Thamba. That's a turnover every time.
Brendan
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Thank you, Bandoo!

The guards need to know their damn personnel. That's a bad decision every time.
Johnny Bear

Finally, Bandoo actually makes a couple of wide open 3's. I think we're 2 for 13 now. Tie game.
CaliByWayOfKS
How long do you want to ignore this user?
2 huge 3s by Bandoo

Dear Gawd, I hope this is the end of the neon unis.

Uhh... that was a bit of a long of a shot there...

Worst looking weave ever run.

Kegler being Kegler again.

Mario trying to play point again and commits a charge. Next camera shot is Self *****ing about something. Life in the Phog.

Kegler is a really dumb basketball player. Hopefully his basketball IQ improves next year because he would be a much better player if he'd just make better decisions.
CaliByWayOfKS
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Kegler had two guys running wide on the high side open and he just put on the blinders instead.
rudylaw

King only has 4 years of experience running the zone and he forgets his man. Immediately taken out. lol.
rudylaw

Hopefully bugeye is seeing Butler isn't ready to run the show just yet.

After a great start, he's really struggled this half.
