Got to focus and stop the live ball turnovers, when we get our defense set, Kansas is having problems.

KU is by far the quickest team we've played, much moreso than Nova or Butler. The fact we are hanging with them on D is a good sign for the final outcome.

I hate to keep calling him out because I know he's a great kid, but Butler Especially has been worthless beyond the three-point line since the start of conference.
5 points in a row later... BUTLER IS A KING

OK got to give props to Butler on the last two possessions. Just got hacked twice - of course it doesn't get called - & still made a tough shot.

Do they realize that we are also ranked in the top-5? They seem absolutely shocked that we are playing so well.

Never seen them play like this at their place. Best team in Drew era? There's a good chance.

Wow. I don't know if we'll win but we are certainly the best team out of the two.

What a week for BU basketball if we get wins @UConn and @KU

Great half

Baylor up by 13!

We are denying passes to their big guy and stealing it some. Drew really scouted him well and had guys prepared for that.

KU guard is playing hurt. Get him out of there Self.
