Does anyone know if that’s the full roster? Kind of short on guards, especially pg.

Kamu is playing on Gotlieb’s team.

Both the shocker alumni and hawk alumni are going to be pretty solid. And from what I hear a Marquette alumni is the #1 seed for the Wichita bracket.

There is a long list of special rules...You can add player depending on the number of registered fans? Fans can also earn money, by completing a laundry list of task. Interesting why to drum up support. The ticket prices seem a little high for the level of competition.

a. The $1,000 Player Registration Fee must be paid to Producer prior to the registration of Players ten (10) through eighteen (18). A Team may add a Player after the Tournament has begun only after advancing to Round 4. The Player Registration Fee for adding a Player before Round 4 shall be $2,000.
b. A Team that has accrued 1,000 registered supporters prior to 72 hours before its first game shall be permitted to add a tenth Player without paying the $1,000 Player Registration Fee.
c. A Team that has accrued 3,000 registered supporters prior to 72 hours before its first game shall be permitted to add an eleventh Player without paying an additional $1,000 Player Registration Fee.

Purple & Black play tonight, 8pm on espn3.

Last night the Ku team lost by nearly 20 , but worse, Perry Ellis got hurt just a minute in and may have torn his ACL.

The WSU team won in a really fun game against a group from Iowa. Atmosphere was great. Pretty mi h like a mid season game at Koch. Hopefully there’s a similar atmosphere tonight that will help the Cats advance.

One other note, the Wichita regional has sold more tickets than the other 7 regionals combined. Terrific showing and support by the area teams fans.

A very offensive challenged team and the Colorado team seams to have a lot of options. Hitting a bunch of 3’s in the first half.

Purple also with a lot of careless turnovers. And definitely not the tough KSU D.

Don’t see them coming back and if they somehow miraculously do, can’t seem them going far.

The Eagle had a fun Foster centric article. Our guys were behind, and the Colorado team was close to winning when our guys nearly staged the greatest comeback in TBT history before falling at the end. Foster had 36. https://www.kansas.com/sports/college/b ... rylink=rss

Foster was a beast. Should've had that charge called at the end.

They all came to see me after the game and had dinner and drinks. If you know me on Facebook, you would have seen the pictures I posted. They were all a classy group of men and women. I had a nice visit with Jevon and Marcus and it is always a pleasure to see my good friend DJ.
