Friday night at Allen Fieldhouse was perhaps one of the more important recruiting nights of the year for KU coach Bill Self, who played host to three top-20 recruits in the 2014 class. Chicago forward Cliff Alexander, the No. 4 overall recruit in Rivals’ top 150, was in the building, along with guard Kelly Oubre of Findlay Prep in Las Vegas. Oubre, originally from the Houston area, is the No. 12 overall recruit in Rivals’ top 150. Malik Pope, a small forward from Elk Grove, Calif., was also on his official visit.

• Junior guard Asia Boyd led the “Blue” team with four points in a 12-7 victory in the women’s scrimmage.

• During the first hour of the night, KU unfurled an NCAA women’s track and field championship banner and handed out rings to members of the 2013 team, which claimed the first women’s national title in school history.
