Vahe Gregorian: Bittersweet or not, Frank Mason’s journey one to celebrate

On Thursday, Kansas senior guard Frank Mason was named The Associated Press national player of the year —- the first AP player of the year in KU’s storied history. It’s a bittersweet time for Mason, who Tweeted that he felt like his life was over after KU’s 74-60 loss to Oregon in the Elite eight last week at the Sprint Center. But Mason should bask in his success story.

Vahe Gregorian: Mason and Graham chemistry creates critical mass for KU

Kansas guard Frank Mason and Devonté Graham each scored 26 points in KU’s 98-66 victory over Purdue on Thursday at the Sprint Center. With the victory, the Jayhawks advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight on Saturday to take on Oregon.

Sam Mellinger: KU is playing better than ever, as evidenced by Sweet 16 stomping of Purdue

My editor is standing over my shoulder telling me we’re at the Sprint Center, but I know what I saw, and more than that know what I heard. So I’m telling him this was Allen Fieldhouse because I saw Kansas beat Purdue 98-66 in a Sweet 16 game on Thursday with That Moment: A breakout 360-degree dunk by Lagerald Vick, an in-and-out miss by Purdue, and then Josh Jackson looked Purdue’s best player in the eyes, smiled and buried a three-pointer.

Quick scout: The biggest fear for KU against Purdue

The biggest fear for the Kansas men’s baskeatball team shouldn’t be Caleb Swanigan, but Purdue’s three-pointers. Iowa State made 18 of 34 and won at Allen Fieldhouse. Indiana made 15 of 31 and won the season opener. Teams that shoot a lot of outside shots against the Jayhawks typically have had strong point-per-possession totals.
