KU’s never had a performance like this in the Self era. Why it shouldn’t be dismissed

Kansas Jayhawks coach Bill Self has had previous teams that were among the nation’s elite in offensive efficiency. None of them, though, had an offensive night like the Jayhawks did Tuesday against the Texas Southern Tigers.

KU overwhelms Texas Southern in record-setting 114-71 victory

Concerns about Kansas’ three-point shooting may have been a bit premature after three games of the 2017-18 season. The Jayhawks, who hit 8 of 28 threes in a four-point victory over Kentucky on Nov. 14 and entered Tuesday’s game against Texas Southern at 39.8 percent from behind the arc, came out firing early and often — and with accuracy — in a record-setting 114-71 victory over the Tigers at Allen Fieldhouse. KU is 4-0. The 114 points were second-most scored in a game by the Jayhawks in the 15-year Bill Self era. Svi Mykhailiuk led the three-point parade with five threes in seven attempts.

Former Miege basketball player, KU recruit Bol Bol commits to Oregon

Former Bishop Miege player Bol Bol, son of NBA player Manute Bol, has committed to play college basketball at Oregon. The Ducks made it to the Final Four last year, beating the Kansas Jayhawks in the Elite Eight at the Sprint Center in March. Bol also was recruited by KU and Creighton. “It came down to Oregon and Kentucky,” Bol wrote in The Players’ Tribune. “As someone who likes to do his own thing — and yeah, troll a little bit — I always rooted for Kentucky. In Kansas, cheering for the Wildcats is like against the law.”

Billy Preston car accident only involved tires, KU Athletics says

The Kansas athletic department released further details Wednesday about a car accident over the weekend that led to freshman forward Billy Preston sitting out Tuesday’s game against the Kentucky Wildcats. KU Athletics said Wednesday that Preston “hit a curb Saturday midday on 19th Street on campus, resulting in minor damage to his tires. Preston is being held out by KU’s administration until the compliance department can get a “clearer financial picture” regarding Preston’s vehicle.
