And what a win it was; close only for the first few minutes, this was a refreshingly lop-sided road win.
The real story seems to be the Noodle's dominant performance: 33 points, 12 rebounds (8 offensive), 2 assists; he combined with an also-on B Rush (8 of 10 from the floor) for 54 points and 21 rebounds, it should be noted.
What worked in the game? Defense, I think: we turned them over sixteen times, many of those in the key 1st half run (when the score went from 8-16 to 32-18). That, and beating that press; not sure, actually, why they brought the press, since they nearly beat us at Allen without it. . . .
Anyway, not a great day for the bigs (Kaun had 0 points and 2 rebounds in 8 minutes), but that ended up being no big deal: we still out-rebounded MU 39-31.
Deron, fill us in on some media talk.
Chris, tell me more about how we look compared to Duke (4 in a row!)
Oh, Colorado coming up . . . I see another on-the-road blowout coming. Let's keep coach Patton to one win all-time against KU. (Speaking of coaches, nice to see coach Self get that 300th win; and nice piece on kusports.com.)
