Bevo's Roundup: Jayhawk Is Best Served Cold

Bdr_header_medium

Tough day in Lawrence.

 

Horns_bullet_medium"I think it was a key win for us," Brown said. "Last year they came in our house and destroyed us (80-68)."

 

Horns_bullet_mediumKansas wasn't the least bit concerned about their win streak.

"I could care less about the streak.  The only thing I was concerned about on the streak was I wanted our team to be the one that had the longest streak in school history. The media does a good job of talking about the streak, but it doesn't weigh that much on my mind."

 

Horns_bullet_mediumIt got very technical.

Four technical fouls were called in the second half. Texas guard Jordan Hamilton was whistled first after appearing to say something to KU’s Brady Morningstar after Hamilton converted a layup. Then KU’s Marcus Morris was whistled for an unknown reason. Later, UT’s J’Covan Brown and KU’s Josh Selby were given a double-technical after approaching each other to the point that their chests touched.

“In an emotional game like that,” KU coach Bill Self said, “for an official to watch that close on everything that’s being said or exchanged, he obviously wanted to get control of it.”

 

Horns_bullet_mediumJayhawk Marcus Morris thinks Kansas beat themselves.

“You can’t take anything from them, but I think we beat ourself,” KU forward Marcus Morris said. “I think that’s the only thing that really happened is that we beat ourself out there.”

Leading 35-23 at halftime, the Jayhawks were outscored 51-28 in the second half, making just eight of 30 shots (26.7 percent) after the break.

“I think we just had some mental lapses. I think it was more so us than them,” KU guard Tyshawn Taylor said. “It was just us missing assignments, not knowing what we were supposed to do, and they capitalized on it. Every time we made a mistake, they scored.”

 

Horns_bullet_mediumTexas players discuss the win in Lawrence.

 

Horns_bullet_mediumThe Jayhawks play defense. Offense? Maybe not so much.

And the numbers tell us that, in a high-possession game (72), it wasn't the Jayhawks' defense that let them down on Saturday.

Instead, it was the offense.

Playing against a great defensive team in Texas, KU posted just 0.88 points per possession — its worst total of the year.

 

 

Horns_bullet_medium  Kansas postgame press conferences:

 

Horns_bullet_medium And let meltdown begin at TexAgs...Enjoy the comments.

They are getting their butts handed to them in the first half...down double digits...terrible shooting percentage.

Yes, it is on the road against a top-ranked opponent, but should a top-10 team ever get rolled like this on on the road?

tu has a habit of getting raped in hostile arenas. (I mean REALLY hostile, like Duke, Kansas, Reed Arena, Missouri, etc.)

Texas only scored 23 points in the first half?!? How do Texas fans put up with watching that kind of crap basketball. Most Aggie fans would not tolerate that kind of bb if their team was ranked in the top-10

tu is only down by 5 now

Maybe Kansas is overrated.

No - might be the best tu 'TEAM' in a long time - do not appear to be a one (or two) trick pony this year.

We'll be very lucky to win on Wed.

yikes
