Longtime Kansas beat writer Jesse Newell of the Kansas City Star joined us earlier this week for out last podcast before Selection Sunday. No, we didn’t preview a potential KU-KSU rubber match in Kansas City. In fact, Jesse and Eric made the case for treating the conference tourneys like an exhibition and resting players if your team is already in the tourney. Sadly, we also didn’t get a chance to talk with Jesse about Tuesday’s crazy David Beaty news, since this podcast was recorded Monday night.
But we did talk with Jesse about a bizarre season for Kansas basketball and whether the Jayhawks would have kept their streak alive if Udoka Azubuike hadn’t gotten hurt, as well as how much credit Texas Tech and K-State deserve for ending the streak.
