KU Beats XTReme Height with FTs, Rebounding, Dunking and Lousy Trey Balling

  • Bill Self went all X-axis in the face of so much stifling length on the Y-axis.

    Call it Bad Ball Lite. Call it a home whistle. Call it thyroid height with slow feet. Call it whatever you want, but Self turned it into a FT (33 FTAs) and dunking contest (I lost count) and won it grinding away looking for seams in a zone of Lurches from The Adams Family of Irvine.

    Oh, and KU outrebounded the Anteaters 35 to 28!

    It was enough for the old trench fighter–Bill Self–to get all misty eyed about the beauty of ugliness again.

    But this was Ugly Lite.

    Frank and Devonte and Wayne and Brannen and Svi and Perry are just too purty now to ever get last season ugly again.

    Still, a coach like Self had to have gone home to Cin and said, “Baby, it was almost like the old days. 17 treys was a little high, but did you see the guys getting down and scoring with a pair. Even Perry bowed up a little. But Opie and Luke…aw baby that’sa what I like! Chantilly Lace and a pretty face…”



    “We aren’t kids anymore, Bill!!!”

    “I know, I know, but, man, it was sweet, honey.”

  • @jaybate-1.0 Ah, Man! Opie and Luke…Chantilly Lace and a pretty face. PHOF!
