KC Star – K-State beats KU 5-4 in Big 12 tournament opener; hoping for first-time bid for NCAA tournament

Friday, May 22nd, 2009


The Wildcats have never reached the NCAA Tournament – they’re all but assured of an invitation next week – and coach Brad Hill set up his pitching rotation with regional play in mind.

K-State’s best chance to make noise in the national tournament is to keep life normal for the staff. It’s why A.J. Morris, the Big 12′s pitcher of the year who started nearly every series for the Wildcats this season, didn’t get the ball Wednesday.

KU’s Morningstar looks for redemption against Texas

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

The Star:

LAWRENCE | Fresh off watching Texas Tech’s Alan Voskuil torch his team for 35 points, Kansas coach Bill Self now faces the unwelcome task of figuring out which of his players will guard Texas’ A.J. Abrams.

Self has at least one volunteer.

“I hope I get to guard him,” KU guard Brady Morningstar said. “You know, to try to redeem myself a little bit.”

Morningstar has taken the Jayhawks’ shocking loss to Texas Tech on Wednesday night harder than anyone. He began the night on Voskuil, who proceeded to swish four three-pointers in the first 7 minutes.

The Jayhawks, who would win a tie breaker over Missouri because of a better record against North foes and over Oklahoma because of their head-to-head win, will play the winner of the 8-9 game between Nebraska and Baylor.

Colorado is locked into the 12th seed. The Texas Tech at Iowa State winner will be the 10th seed, the loser the 11th.

LAWRENCE, Kan. | Baylor, playing without leading scorer and rebounder Danielle Wilson, made just 26 percent of its shots from the field and was upset by Kansas 69-45 Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Wilson, who may have suffered a torn ACL against Texas on Saturday, did not make the trip to Kansas.

Meanwhile, the other Danielle — that would be McCray of Kansas — fired off 35 points in the Jayhawks’ biggest victory of the season. McCray made seven three-point shots in her career-high game.
