TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Expect at least a few chants of "Rock Chalk, Jayhawk" to bounce off the Statehouse rotunda this week. On Friday, legislators and Gov. Kathleen Sebelius will honor the University of Kansas football and basketball teams for their accomplishments. Men's basketball coach Bill Self will bring members of his national championship team to Topeka. The Jayhawks won their first title since 1988, beating Memphis in overtime, 75-68. Kansas finished the season 37-3.

Power forward Zach Peters has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at the University of Kansas, head coach Bill Self announced Tuesday. Peters signed his papers at a ceremony with family and friends at his home in Plano, Texas, Monday night, Nov. 14. The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Peters verbally committed to KU in April 2010, following his sophomore year at Prestonwood Christian Academy. “Zach's big. He's a legit 6-9, 240-pound high school senior that can really shoot the basketball,” Self said.

Kansas got the best of 'ol Roy and his Tar Heels once again.     Behind the impassioned play of Travis Releford and Jeff Withey, the top-seeded Jayhawks shook themselves out of a first-half slumber and blitzed No. 8 seed North Carolina down the stretch for a 70-58 victory Sunday in the third round of the NCAA tournament.     Withey had 16 points and 16 rebounds, and Releford finished with 22 points for the Jayhawks (31-5), who also knocked former coach Roy Williams' team out of the NCAA tournament during their 2008 title run and again last season, when Kansas marched all the way to the Final Four.

It started well enough for the Jayhawks, but after a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, the wheels came off quickly. Texas Tech scored 20 points in the second quarter to take a 20-10 halftime lead, and then scored 34 more before the Jayhawks finally found the end zone with just under 8 minutes to play in the game, but it was too little, too late, as the No. 20 Red Raiders won 54-16. Jake Heaps led the 'Hawks with 189 yards passing on 16 of 32 attempts, with 1 touchdown and 1 interception.

Kansas football wrapped up its 12th preseason practice with a nearly one and one-half hour scrimmage at Memorial Stadium Saturday night. "I thought there was a little bit of sloppiness on our offense," Gill said afterwards. "We had some unforced errors - jumping offside and not lining up and things of those nature. There were some big hits on defense. There was a mix of good things, which is good for a head coach. There wasn't one side totally dominating the other so I feel like we made some improvement, but we need to continue to work hard.

by Richard Smith 10:55pm Jayhawks win the Orange Bowl in Miami, Final Score: 24-21. No defensive stand necessary. KU successfully runs out the clock, and the Hokies never get the opportunity to make it interesting by driving for the win. Assuming Mark Mangino was starting to sweat it out a little at the end, it's probably not an issue now. He got a nice gatorade bath courtesy of his players. 10:45pm Not so fast! Virginia Tech drives 78 yards for a touchdown with three minutes left.

The top recruit in the nation, and the brother of a Wichita State basketball player has made his choice for college next season, and it's in the state of Kansas, but not where Shocker fans had hoped. Andrew Wiggins announced this morning he will be a Jayhawk next season. Andrew's brother Nick is a senior-to-be for Wichita State, but the Shockers were considered a long-shot at best to get the top-rated younger brother. For the University of Kansas, this is a big win, as the Jayhawks are looking to replace their top five scorers from last season.

Kansas guard Naadir Tharpe has been suspended for the Jayhawks' season opener Nov. 8 against Louisiana-Monroe after playing in an unauthorized summer league game in Chicago. Tharpe, who is expected to start at point guard, did not seek permission from Kansas to play in the game. Under NCAA rules, players are only allowed to play in summer league games from their home area or close to where they attend school. Kansas coach Bill Self said after a 97-57 exhibition victory over Pittsburg State on Tuesday night that the school self-reported the violation.

Top prospect Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points in his Allen Fieldhouse debut, leading Kansas to a 97-57 rout of Pittsburg State in its exhibition opener Tuesday night. Wiggins, who many believe will be the No. 1 pick in next year's NBA draft, got off to an inauspicious start for the Jayhawks when he traveled the first time he touched the ball. Wiggins appeared jittery playing in front of a raucous crowd and struggled to get into rhythm. Then again, new rules against hand-checking led to a plethora of fouls, and nobody got into much of a rhythm.

Baylor has been dominant at home this season. That wasn't the case on its first road trip. The Bears' offense was held to half of its season average by Kansas State, and they were trailing in the second half. But behind the splendid play of quarterback Bryce Petty, they still managed to squeak out a 35-25 victory. Now, Baylor heads back on the road for the second time this season on Saturday night, when it faces struggling Kansas - a program that has lost 24 straight Big 12 games.

Marcus Smart has a simple message for Andrew Wiggins: Prove it.     It's the same message that his veteran Oklahoma State teammates want to deliver to Wiggins' young, hungry group of Jayhawks this season.     Smart bristled at the Big 12's annual media day Tuesday when the star guard was asked about the hype surrounding Wiggins, the consensus No. 1 recruit in the nation. Smart went on to say that he knows Wiggins is a tremendous player, but he hasn't accomplished anything yet.     Smart would have been a lottery pick in the NBA draft had he come out last year, but instead he returned for his sophomore season.

It wasn't the start that Oklahoma wanted, but they certainly got the finish they needed. The Sooners fell in a 13-0 hole to the Kansas Jayhawks, but then rallied to score 25 straight to put the game out of reach, and won 34-19.  Wichitian Blake Bell had a solid game for the Sooners, while James Sims starred for the Jayhawks, especially in the first half. Sims had 17 carries for 107 yards in the first half, and finished with 23 carries for 129 yards and two touchdowns. For OU, Bell finished 15/25 for 131 yards and two touchdowns.

Andrew Wiggins slouched down in a chair with cameras stuck in his face. Conner Frankamp tried to heave in a half-court shot. Wayne Selden sat back and smiled inside Allen Fieldhouse.     The calendar hasn't even flipped to October and basketball is already on the mind at Kansas.     The Jayhawks will get their first chance to step on the floor this week after the NCAA's legislative council amended and approved a measure allowing men's basketball teams to conduct 30 days of practice in the six weeks prior to their first regular-season game.

Kansas quarterback Jake Heaps could be forgiven if he experienced a "here we go again" kind of moment when he arrived home last Saturday night. After beating a lower-division team in their season opener, the Jayhawks were leading Rice in the second half when things went haywire. Just like last year, the result was a stinging defeat that left Kansas sitting at 1-1 as it heads into Week 3 of the season. The Jayhawks play Louisiana Tech on Saturday. The Bulldogs also will be trying to get on track at Memorial Stadium.
