NAADIR THARPE RUMORS

Opinion: Matt Carlino is KU’s solution

Earlier today, BYU announced that junior point guard Matt Carlino would be transferring from the program. Carlino is set to graduate in June so he’ll be able to play right away. KU’s main issue in the 2013-14 season point guard play and after last weekend’s escapades of Naadir Tharpe,  can Bill Self really trust his most experienced player on his roster next year? Matt Carlino...

Joel Embiid may sit due to tweaked back injury; Tharpe dislocated thumb

Our conversation had turned to Kansas, and the Big 12 broadcaster -- a smart man, a no-nonsense type, and a hell of a Big 12 player himself, back in the day -- said this when asked about Jayhawks center Joel Embiid and the mighty KU front line: "He can have his 14 (points) and 11 (rebounds)," the analyst noted. Then he paused. "What I don't want is for him to finish...

KU's Tharpe gets on the wrong side of his coach -- and then takes it out on Toledo

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Hey, Bill Self loves his point guard. Honest, he does. Why, he even called a timeout 35 seconds into Monday night's Kansas-Toledo game just to bring Naadir Tharpe over to the bench and remind him just how much he loves him. Although, the coach did open this particular conversation by shouting: "WHAT THE (EXPLETIVE DELETED BECAUSE THIS IS A FAMILY SITE)...

Veteran guard Tharpe is the axis around which KU's young stars will spin

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- You can shoot and dunk and magic and Wiggins your way out of anything. Until March. March doesn't care about recruiting rankings. March doesn't care about YouTube highlights. March is a results game, a guard's game. If the point man fails, the head of the snake dies, and the party's over. It's the one hole in the wall you can't patch or...
