KU’s Self says again that Joel Embiid is still deciding whether to enter NBA Draft

KU coach Bill Self said again Monday that Jayhawks freshman center Joel Embiid hasn’t decided to enter the NBA Draft, contrary to a Yahoo Sports report last week. “I think Joel is gathering information, but not information on where he’ll be picked because he’s going to go high,” Self said. “The decision he needs to make is, what’s best for him over time, whether to stay another year or to go.”

KU's Wiggins will announce Monday he’s turning pro

When Andrew Wiggins arrived at Kansas last summer, one of his goals was to become the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He is poised to take another step toward that goal Monday when he will officially declare for the NBA Draft at a 2 p.m. press conference at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence.

KU reports record $93 million in athletic revenue, $13 million surplus for 2013 fiscal year

Kansas reported $93 million in revenue in the 2013 fiscal year, according to documents filed with the NCAA. KU boasted the third-highest athletics revenue in the Big 12 behind football powers Texas ($165.7 million) and Oklahoma ($123.8 million). It also resulted in a surplus of more than $13 million when factoring in KU’s reported expenses of $79.7 million.

KU’s Andrew Wiggins receives second-team All-America honors from basketball coaches

Andrew Wiggins’ college career is most likely over, but the Kansas freshman is still racking up postseason honors. Wiggins was selected second-team All-America by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, the NABC announced on Wednesday.

What Wayne Selden's return means for KU

Wayne Selden's decision to return also provides some stability to a Kansas roster that had to replace all five starters this past season. Senior forward Tarik Black is gone, Andrew Wiggins is a lock to enter the NBA Draft, and Joel Embiid has a decision to make. Even still, Bill Self should return the bulk of the roster from his latest Big 12 title team. Here's a first look at next year's squad (leaving Embiid out of the equation):

Kansas’ loss a missed opportunity that had season-long roots

The second-seeded Kansas Jayhawks lost 60-57 on Sunday in the round of 32 to Stanford, a No. 10 seed that last played in this tournament six years ago. They should’ve been so much better than this. They could’ve been remembered as the fun-loving stars who grew together and lived up to one of the sport’s elite brand names.

Stanford turned Kansas’ shooters into doubters and got their attention

With a variety of defensive looks, Stanford planted a seed of doubt with seemingly every Kansas offensive set during the Jayhawks’ 60-57 NCAA Tournament loss Sunday. The outcome came attached with an additional measure of satisfaction for Chasson Randle, the Stanford player whom KU’s Andrew Wiggins and Wayne Selden said they didn’t know a day ago.
