Great play by Juwan Staten at the end of the KU game but it's absolutely crazy the refs didn't call a walk. #KidDefinitelyTraveled
Patiently awaiting tweets of indignation from @franfraschilla and @sportsiren.
I'm sure KU will get an apology from the Big 12.
That hurt !! My team and I will grow stronger from it I know it ! All I can do is thank god for giving me the opportunity to play this game!

Kelly Oubre Jr. had a good view of Perry Ellis’ late layup try in a 62-61 Big Monday road loss to West Virginia.
“I mean I can say what I saw, but it’s not what everybody else saw. Apparently he didn’t get fouled from the ref’s eyes, so that’s that,” Oubre stated.
West Virginia coach Bob Huggins had another opportunity to pocket an extra $25,000 on Monday night. Huggins, in his eighth season at West Virginia, has an incentive in his contract for any regular-season victory over Kansas. The provision was put in place in late 2012, when Huggins signed a contract extension.
The contract states, according to the Charleston Daily Mail, that Huggins will earn a $25,000 bonus for “any victory over the University of Kansas during the regular season.”
Huggins cashed in again after West Virginia’s 62-61 victory.
Incentives for conference championships, NCAA Tournament appearances and Final Fours are not rare in the college basketball. But a bonus for a victory over a specific program is somewhat uncommon.
“I think the world of Bob Huggins and consider him a good friend,” Kansas coach Bill Self said last year, in an interview with the Daily Mail. “I’m going to do everything I can to keep money out of his pocket, and if I don’t, I know who’s buying dinner.”
