As dog days of college hoops season set in, KU players take on the ‘freshman wall’

They say the wall is real. They say that it’s a freshman thing, that the injuries, practices and games can pile up like miles on an odometer. They say the freshman wall looks a lot like KU center Joel Embiid, leaving the KU locker room on Friday afternoon and slowly walking into practice with an icepack around his sore left knee. But if you ask some of Kansas’ freshmen, they are not even sure the whole wall phenomenon is real.
