KU basketball kicks off the season

As University of Kansas sophomore Carlton Bragg, Jr., goes up for the dunk, the crowd gets silent. It seems like he is in the air for hours and hours. When he finishes the dunk the crowd goes in an uproar!!! It was a sight to be seen.

On Oct. 1 the Jayhawks put on a full performance for the KU fans. This event was filled with fans’ favorites, such as dunks, half-court shots and a full court scrimmage, as well as a performance by Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne.

Late Night in the Phog ended with a scrimmage. Both KU teams played against each other. Four of the Jayhawks ended up in double figures by the end of the game.

Bragg said, “We’re going to keep going at it, everyday, every practice.”

Most fans had their eyes on the top prospects such as freshman Josh Jackson, Bragg and the other players. But what shocked the whole arena was the fact that walk-on junior Tucker Vang would score a basket before Jackson.

The crowd was into the event, the players were into the event, and the coaches were into the event. Some of the players on the team were just happy to be there with the supportive team and the loving fans.

Other players said it was great to start out the season on the court in front of their fans.

KU will take a couple of days off by just playing pickup games before starting the actual first practice, allowing injured players such as Udoka Azubuike to rest and return to the action with the team.
