When No. 4 Kansas basketball (6-1) plays its Saturday matinee against Stanford (6-2), many KU fans at Allen Fieldhouse will welcome back the familiar face of Cardinal head coach Jerod Haase, a standout guard for the Jayhawks in the late 1990s.
As Matt Tait discussed earlier, Landen Lucas is indeed warming up and expected to play today.
What does everyone expect Jerod Haase's pregame introduction to sound like?
What's the top thing that everybody wants to see in today's game? I think the player that I'll be watching the most is Carlton Bragg. At some point, KU is going to need more frontcourt production from somebody not named Udoka Azubuike. Bragg had a solid second half against Long Beach State, but I want to see if he can turn that momentum into a trend for multiple games.
Huge standing ovation for Jerod Haase, who does a quick wave to the crowd.
KU players and Bill Self also clapping.
Allen Fieldhouse feels like it's rocking more than usual today. Perhaps, another Power Five school does that.
Allen Fieldhouse is absolutely rocking today.
Reid Travis with a game-opening layup. Nearly averaging a double-double this year.
Then Udoka finishes an alley-oop from Josh Jackson.
Christian Sanders with a foul on a Frank Mason layup-and-the-foul bucket. His dad played at KU in the 70's.
Two fouls on Christian Sanders. He's out of here after 1:35.
Azubuike picks up a foul trying to defend Reid Travis, who is a below-average free throw shooter.
Josh Jackson tried another trademark bounce pass in transition. Didn't work this time.
On the floor: Mason, Graham, Svi, Bragg and Lucas.
