Is soft start paying hard dividends?

  • Self started the season with a shorter boot camp and less heavy workload. He said he did this to compensate for the longer season. Is KU’s use current uptick due to the fact that many other teams did not do what self did, and so are hitting the midseason wall sooner than KU? Will KU miss the wall, or just hit it a few weeks later?

  • @jaybate 1.0-Embid appeared as if he made solid contact vs ISU, but freshman always hit it earlier. Ellis & Na seemed fairly fresh last game, especially Nadir. He looked smooth as glass dropping those dimes, knocking down J’s, & swooping down the lane. He impressed the H out of his doubters, including me. JMO

  • @globaljaybird No question that Naa has survived the crucible and found a comfort zone. He is playing about as I expected in offensive floor game, but his scoring is way more efficient than I expected. His defense still seems suspect, but it appears to be Goodnuf with the wings and post man he has backing him up. He is one of the most pleasant surprises on this team.

  • You want me on the wall, you need me on that wall … but friends, there will be no wall. This team’s arrow is pointed skyward. Bumps? Sure. Some glitches? You bet. But forget the wall. We’re too freaking good.

  • @HighEliteMajor I’m w/you. The bumps might be some minor injuries. We’re so deep!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 That is where we have the advantage on UT. They play 10 but their bench not anywhere near as good as ours.

  • @RockChalkinTexas I don’t think any team has a bench like ours!
