AUDIO: Jayhawks Roll Over Sooners 104-74

NORMAN OK – FEBRUARY 17 Kerwin Roach II

That was the big takeaway from the evening for some people.

The crowd at Allen should give Young a nice welcome to Lawrence, as Kansas nearly snagged him from Norman, Oklahoma.

Talk about fitting. These two players who have been best friends, similar shooters and roommates throughout their KU career could wind up in an awfully lofty position together on one of KU's most impressive all-time lists when it's all said and done.

After leading the Mountaineers in free-throw attempts as a sophomore, Ahmad hasn't put the same kind of pressure on defenses this season. "I'm 19 years old and this is something I love doing. I don't think I've ever been in a game where we shot two free throws", Huggins said during his postgame press conference.

Some outrage over 35-2 is a given because officiating crews typically "manage" the game to keep the foul numbers in the same stratosphere. Recall that WVU came in as the 19th-most foul-prone team out of 351 schools in Division I (21 per game). The Jayhawks are now 21-6 overall, 10-4 in the Big 12 and 13-12-1 against the spread. "I'm just going to go out there and concentrate". "When you win a game in Big 12, that's big".

Kansas Jayhawks head coach Bill Self brings plenty of College basketball wagering cache.

Earlier this month, following an 80-64 loss home loss to Kansas, Baylor senior forward Nuni Omot minced no words when talking about the difficulty of playing against the Jayhawks.

Duke climbed seven spots to fifth, Texas Tech and Gonzaga are tied for sixth, Kansas went from 13th to eighth, Purdue dropped three notches to ninth and North Carolina moved up four places to 10th.


Heck, after all that time so many in the national media spent prematurely lamenting the end of the Big 12 streak, Kansas could still play its way into an outright title and the overall No. 1 seed by winning out. His frustrations may have stemmed from a 2017 game in which the Jayhawks shot 27 free throws to just six for Baylor. James is averaging 18.7 points and 5.0 rebounds over the last three games.

A month before Omot made his comments, Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber also aired some grievances.

"I thought it'd be February 1 before he'd really be able to impact us".

When asked after the 2018 game to specify some of the calls he was angry about, Weber told reporters to "ask Fran Fraschilla about it".

Being three games below.500 in the Big 12 race with three games to play and on a six-game slide could/should knock them out of the NCAA Tournament bubble conversation for the moment.

"Yeah, it happened every time I went to Kansas", Barnes said.

For the first time in 11 games, KU's point guard and sensational leader actually got a rest. A reeling team heading to Allen Fieldhouse doesn't sound like a recipe for success, but it's what the Sooners have to deal with Monday evening. But all of that will mean little if the Sooners are not able to win at least two of the remaining five regular-season games.
