START OF GAME: Right before the tip Sherron Collins and Xavier Henry shared a man-hug.
19:06 1st half: Lehigh scores first and Kansas is blanked first two times down. I can tell you this much though, Lehigh has no answer for the Jayhawks' size and Cole Aldrich will wear down Gabe Knutson.
16:51 1st half: Jayhawks have turned the ball over 5 times now, making sloppy passes and not looking very cohesive. Brady is coming in now and Markieff. Cole and Tyshawn are taking a breather.
15:59 1st half: It's 4-2 Lehigh and again Kansas just looks sloppy. Just saw football coach Turner Gill's daughter again. She's working with the sports information side of things here. Also Coach Ben Jacobson just walked in front of me and the remaining UNI fans went nuts! Rightfully so.
15:14 1st half: There's just something so amazingly artistic about the way Sherron Collins drives to the hoop. He gets the second KU bucket of the game. Right now they're down 8-4.
14:11 1st half: Kansas is now 0-5 from the three point line. Nothing seems to be working. Mountain Hawks are now up 12-4.
13:00 1st half: Marcus Morris is the first Jayhawk to get a three to fall, barely. Kansas looks way more aggressive now and Sherron is really putting the pressure on defensively.
12:26 1st half: Big time steal by Tyshawn and he gets the bucket on the other end. 12-9 Lehigh.
11:53 1st half: THIS is the Jayhawk team fans know and love. Cole just came up with a big time and one. Kansas fans are finally getting into it as the Hawks are currently on an 8-0 run.
RANDOM SIDENOTE: Lucas O'rear and Kwadzo Ahelegbe just walked up into the stands with their fans. I think that's pretty darn cool. Coach Jacobson is walking up there too to grab his son. I love small schools for that reason.
11:34 1st half: Cole gets his second block of the game. He simply controls every bit of the paint. Marcus follows up with an up and under lay in for a 10-0 run. Kansas takes its first lead at 11:00 14-12.
9:53 1st half: Xavier Henry hits a 3 to extend the run to 15-0. That's where it finished. 19-14 Kansas leading.
**As soon as I say this it will change I bet but Kansas only has 2 team fouls right now. Not even kidding, right as I finished typing that Marcus Morris got whistled for a foul. Third team foul Kansas at 8:42.
RANDOM QUESTION: I think there should be a rule that when you come to an event like this, if you are above the age of 22 and not in college you are not allowed to paint your face. I have seen not one but two or three 50+ aged men with their faces entirely painted. Come on, don't be that guy.
7:40 1st half: Marcus Morris now has 11 points. Kansas is up 23-14.
***The Patriot League's freshman of the year C.J. McCollum only has 2 points and they're both off free throws. He's 0-7 from the floor.
6:22 1st half: How about a little flare for the dramatic, Tyshawn Taylor gets the steal easily and the slam on the other end. Part of a 21-5 run for KU. It's 25-17 now.
4:11 1st half: Gabe Knutsen, Lehigh's big man, just picked up his 3rd foul. On the contrary, Kansas just missed its third three throw in a row.
3:40 1st half: Zahir Carrington is carrying the Mountain Hawks. He just got into double digits scoring and completed a 6-0 Lehigh run. It's 25-23 Kansas.
Kansas just can't seem to put Lehigh away right now. They're not able to hit a stride. CJ McCollum just got his second bucket of the game by the way. It's a 1 point game now, 26-25 Kansas with 2:47 left.
