... did you know that Saturday is another KANSAS...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL DAY!
(The "ringing off the hook" Hawk Phone for these day games is back ordered, so I'm going to stick with the night game Hawk Signal until the phone arrives! And thanks to my supplier jaythawk1 & Son for taking on the task of creating it!)


Saturday starting at 1:00 PM CT on the Jayhawk Network and ESPN+, for the first time in history our KANSAS JAYHAWKS will play the Mid-American Conference Eastern Michigan Eagles. The Jayhawks return to the friendly confines of venerable Allen Fieldhouse to face their final non-con foe before Big 12 play begins next week (KU hosts OU in AFH on Wednesday Jan 2). Saturday's game voices for the Jayhawk Network and ESPN+ will be Dave Armstrong (play-by-play) and former Jayhawk walk-on & later Creighton Blue Jay Nick Bahe (analysis), with Kennetra Pulliams doing the game courtside reporting.

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 11-1, while the Eagles (6-6) are hoping to climb back above .500 with their 2nd win in a row. The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor gives the Eagles just over a 2% chance to succeed. (Fun fact: the 1996 Eagles were seeded 9th in the NCAA tournament and beat this nondescript program from Durham NC in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Sweetness!:woohoo: )

Wednesday is KU's first conference...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL NIGHT!

8:00 PM CT on ESPN2 the Sooners invade The Phog for the conference season openers for both teams. Wednesday's game voices will be Bob Wischusen on play-by-play and analysis from Fran Fraschilla. No word on who will be doing the courtside reporting.

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 12-1 and 1-0, while the Sooners are looking for those numbers themselves. The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor favors the Jayhawks by better than 3-1 (Chance of success: KU 76%, OU 24%)

Fun facts courtesy of KU Athletics: Kansas has won a mindboggling 27-straight conference openers dating back to the 1991-92 season with 10 of those in Allen Fieldhouse and 17 on the road. The last time KU lost a conference opener was at Oklahoma, 88-82, on Jan. 8, 1991. Since 1991-92, KU and OU have played twice in the KU league opener – 1993-94 at KU and 2013-14 at OU.

A solid start to the conference season. Could have been better on O, D was pretty darn good.

Wondering how many folks betting KU to cover the spread are unhappy with that last KU possession?
The spread was 8.5 points, right?

One of the reasons I don't bet, I can just be happy KU won!

On to hopefully another KU victory in Ames this Saturday!

Rock Chalk!

... another KANSAS...

... BALL DAY!
(The "ringing off the hook" Hawk Phone is up and ringing thanks to jaythawk1's #1 Son!)


Saturday on ESPN2 -- starting mercifully at 4:00 PM CT (12:00 PM Aloha Time so asteroid gets to sleep in a little this time around) -- our beloved Boys in Blue will be up north to tackle a little Hilton Magic for game 2 of their 2019 Big XIII schedule. Game voices will be Mark Neely on play-by-play and analysis from Fran Fraschilla. No word on who will be doing the courtside reporting.

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 13-1 and 2-0, while the Cyclones are looking for 12-2 and 2-0. The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor favors the Cyclones at home 60%-40%, but the point spread is only 1 point, so it really is closer to a tossup.

Ugh. I really am not a superstitious fellow, but I did notice (and laugh) at KU's last win giving Self 666 career wins.

Here's to Self getting off that "evil" number next Wednesday hosting the Horned Frogs.

Ugh, what a game today...:pinch:

TCU's in town for another...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL NIGHT!

8:00 PM CT on ESPN2 the Horned Frogs invade The Phog as KU looks to rebound from it's first Big 12 loss of the season. Wednesday's game voices will be Bob Wischusen on play-by-play, analysis from Fran Fraschilla, and Kris Budden doing the courtside reporting.

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 13-2 and 2-1, while the 12-1 Horned Frogs look to improve to 13-1 overall and 2-0 in Big 12 play. The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor favors the Jayhawks by almost 4-1 (chance of success: KU 78.3%, OU 21.7%). KU is favored by 6.5 points.

In case you missed it, this game will mark the debut of KU frosh Ochai Agbaji. The 6-5/210 wing doffs his redshirt as Self & Co look to go with a 4 guard lineup for the rest of the season with the injury to Udoka Azubuike. All the best to the lad!

Fun facts courtesy of KU Athletics
• When the game following a loss is in Allen Fieldhouse, KU is 47-3 in the Self era.
• Kansas leads the overall series with TCU, 16-2, including a 7-0 record in Lawrence and 6-0 in Allen Fieldhouse.
• KU leads TCU 2-1 in the last three meetings with all three outcomes being decided by seven points or less.

TCU Senior PG Jaylen Fisher is still suffering from the ailing right knee that has not healed completely since tearing the meniscus last January. He missed the Horned Frogs' 85-81 victory over Baylor to open Big 12 play, no word yet if he is out or "go" for tonight.

TCU Junior F Yuat Alok (6-11/225) will miss his 4th straight game after breaking his wrist (the #1 JUCO transfer for 2018 was averaging 13.1 minutes per game until his injury).

Word on another board is that around lunchtime today the TCU play-by-play voice was saying that Fisher was out for tonight.

In his lead-in presser, Self noted KU was preparing as if Fisher would play.

Perhaps something of a break for KU, but it is noteworthy that Fisher's redshirt freshman sub has done well in Fischer's absence. In the win over Baylor, 6-4 R.J. Nembhard played 33 minutes, carding 10 points and 3 assists

Hoping for a big win tonight at home after the embarrassing road loss in Ames..

... the Jayhawks come to town for another...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL DAY!!

3:00 PM CT on ESPN our beloved Jayhawks invade the Ferrell Center (cap.10,284) as KU looks to capture it's first Big 12 road win of the season. Saturday's game voices will be Rich Hollenberg on play-by-play, with analysis from Fran Fraschilla. No word on who will be doing the courtside reporting.

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 14-2 and 3-1, while the 9-5 Bears are looking for their 10th win and to improve to 2-1 in Big 12 play. The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor gives the Jayhawks a 58% chance to win. No spread available at post time.

Fun facts courtesy of KU Athletics
• Although Baylor won last year's Ferrell Center game, KU is 12-3 there all-time (30-5 v BU all-time, 22-4 v Scott Drew's Bears).
• BU is seeking its first ever consecutive win against KU.
• Vick is 6 points short of being the 61st Jayhawk to score 1000 in his KU career (16th 1000 pointer for Self).
• With its Wednesday win against TCU, Kansas is 87-11 following a loss in the Bill Self era. Since 2013-14, the Jayhawks are 37-3 following a loss. When the game following a loss is in Allen Fieldhouse, KU is 48-3 in the Self era.
• Not-so-fun fact: with its two losses at Arizona State and ISU, KU is still searching for its first true road game win of the season. Get 'er done, Jayhawks!

... in Lawrence on another...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL NIGHT!
(NB: Mostly clear skies predicted for Lawrence tonight!)

8:00 PM CT on ESPN the Longhorns invade The Phog as KU looks to keep pace with the 4-0 Red Raiders, who branded the Longhorns (OWNED!) last Saturday in Austin (the Longhorns 22-game home win streak against Texas Tech, dating to the final season of the Southwest Conference, was halted with the Red Raiders Saturday win in Austin). Monday's game voices will be Bob Wischusen (play-by-play), Fran Fraschilla (analyst) and Holly Rowe reporting from courtside (you go girl, great to have you in house again!).

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 15-2 and 4-1, while the 10-1 (2-2) Longhorns look to break a two game losing streak by earning Shaka Smart his first ever Big 12 win against KU (2015 to today: 0-6). The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor favors the Jayhawks 83% to 17%. KU is favored by 8 points.

Fun facts courtesy of KU Athletics and ESPN
• Kansas leads Texas all time 31-8; 16-1 in Lawrence, 14-1 in Allen Fieldhouse (15-7 "deep in the heart of Texas").
• KU has won the last nine meetings. Caveat: the last three games have been decided by 10 points or less.
• KU has won 30-straight Big Monday games in Allen Fieldhouse.
• KU has won its last 10 ESPN Big Monday contests.
• Smart's overall Big 12 record (2015-16 to date) is 25-33.

tu freshman forward Jaxson Hayes (6-11, 220) leads the Big 12 in FG% at 74.7%. He's recorded tu leading 2.5 blocks per game, and is second on team with 10.1 PPG and 5.1 RBG

tu sophomore guards are playing well in conference. Matt Coleman has 19 assists against three turnovers, while Jase Febres is averaging 11 points on 55.2% shooting.

... in Morgantown on another...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL DAY!!
(Here's recognition to but no apologies for riffing off of the TV show theme for "The Real McCoys" in addition to our usual "Batman" homage for this edition!)
(Yeah, I'm *that* old that I remember that stuff from first showings!:P )

asteroid has to be in retrograde again with yet another early afternoon Jayhawks game!

1:00 PM CT (9:00 AM HT) on ESPN our beloved Jayhawks invade the mountains of West Virginia and WVU Coliseum (capacity 14,000) in their quest for yet another Big XII road win short term and NCAA record 15th straight conference regular season title long term. KU looks to stay atop the conference while WVU desperately looks to earn its first Big XII win of the season. Saturday's game voices will be Dave Flemming on play-by-play, with analysis from Fran Fraschilla. No word on who will be doing the courtside reporting.

Our Jayhawks look to extend their AY2018-19 record to 16-2 and 5-1 while the Mountaineers hope to get back to .500 overall (9-9) and 1-5 in conference play -- and help Huggie Bear get another $25K "Beat Bill Self Bonus". (Full and fair disclosure - Huggins donates those bonuses in his mother's name to cancer research.) The ESPN pregame Match-up Predictor gives the Jayhawks a 66% chance to win. No spread available at post time.

And, of course, there is the BIG QUESTION that all Kansas fans want an answer to -- will Silvio De Sousa be cleared to play by the NCAA, and will it be in time for Saturday's game? (Here's to knowing the answer to this question by the end of Friday, if you please NCAA!)

Fun facts courtesy of KU Athletics
• Kansas leads the overall series with West Virginia, 10-4, and has won the last four meetings.
• But the Moutaineers hold a 4-2 advantage against Kansas in games played in WVU Coliseum.
• Four of the last five KU-WVU clashes have been decided by eight points or less.
• Kansas is 90-39 in Big 12 road games under HCBS, including 1-1 this season. KU’s winning percentage (69.8%) in league road games since 2003-04 is the best among teams in the six major conferences (ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12, SEC).
• A Sporting News Midseason All-America First Team selection, Dedric Lawson leads the Big 12 in rebounding at 10.6 rpg and double-doubles (11) and is the only player in the league averaging a double-double. He is vying to become the first Jayhawk to lead the league in rebound average since All-American Thomas Robinson in 2011-12.
• After its 80-78 win against Texas on Jan. 14, Kansas is 37-3 in conference games decided by 10 points or less since 2016.
