MARK ROBBINS, COLLECTIONS MANAGER for the ornithology department, displays an albatross in a spacious new lab Wednesday at Kansas University’s Museum of Natural History. Dyche Hall, where the museum is housed, now has eight new state-of-the-art laboratories after a two-year, $3.5 million renovation.

New KU natural history labs ready for research after $3.5 million renovations By Matt Erickson merickson@ljworld.com

A fog envelops a 5-footwide, 6-foot-tall metal tank on the first floor of Kansas University’s Dyche Hall. Frost covers the hatch on top. Inside, it fills with liquid nitrogen, enough to freeze the pieces of animal tissue inside at about minus 170 degrees Celsius (about 270

below zero Fahrenheit). Before this winter, those tissues sat in a freezer plugged into the wall. The sometimes decades-old samples, and the genetic clues they might contain, were at the mercy of the electricity on campus. The two new cryogenic tanks — about $100,000 apiece — are just one piece of an effort to bring the KU Biodiversity Institute facili-

Many in Lawrence not concerned about measure that’s expected to save $2B a year to begin Aug. 5, would save about $2 billion each year. “Our financial condition is urgent,” Donahoe said at a press conference. In Lawrence, Donahoe officials at City Hall, Kansas University, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, busi-

a Lawrence church, said that would be good enough for him. He was at the Vermont Street post office Wednesday, and will still be able to access his post office box six days a week. “It’s just another day,” Nicholson said. “If I were a business, maybe that would be different.” But even local copy and printing businesses that depend heavily on mailings and delivery services said they would be

Senator: Bill on union check deduction needs more study By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After two Senate committee meetings on a business-backed bill aimed at curbing political action by state workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unions, the committee chairwoman said Wednesday the legislation needs to be studied more before a vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to work through some issues,â&#x20AC;? said Commerce Chairwoman Julia Lynn, R-Olathe. The Kansas Chamber

of Commerce has been pushing House Bill 2023, w h i c h its representatives said Lynn is aimed at preventing the Kansas National Education Association from collecting voluntary paycheck deductions for political purposes. But opponents of the measure say other lan-

guage in the bill would essentially prevent public sector unions that represent state and local government employees from political participation. Senate President Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, supports the measure aimed at paycheck deductions, but said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want is something that weighs down this bill and goes to court and delays this bill.â&#x20AC;?

KU, lawmakers collaborate on abortion bill solution By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A wide-ranging bill that would regulate abortion more strictly in Kansas was introduced in the House on Wednesday, but it includes language that key legislators said would allow Kansas University medical students to receive privately funded abortion training.

Supporters of the bill said they believe that provision, worked out in a deal with KU Medical Center, would allay concerns that the tougher regulations could jeopardize accreditation of the medical schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obstetrics and gynecology program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we are going to be in a posture where there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be a KU issue with this bill,â&#x20AC;?

said Rep. Lance Kinzer, ROlathe, who is a vocal opponent of abortion. C.J. Janovy, a spokeswoman for the KU Medical Center, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet seen a final copy of the measure that was introduced this morning, we believe we have found an administrative remedy that would not put Please see ABORTION, page 4A

City candidate would focus tax dollars on core needs By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Michael Rost would like to add a little boredom to his life by becoming a Lawrence city commissioner. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really blame him. Rost, after all, is a competitive cyclist who recently had plenty of excitement flipping over the handlebars of his bike on a road course outside of Fayetteville, Ark. Rost has the cut on his forehead and the braces on his teeth to prove it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The oral surgeon knocked me out and wired my teeth up and pushed them back in place,â&#x20AC;? Rost said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give them a rest and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll heal.â&#x20AC;? Rost is one of 11 candidates who have filed for a

ance business and other parts of the financial sector. Rost said the courtroom work helps fuel a competitive spirit that he has had since his days growing up in Wichita as a track and field athlete. Rost was a member of the Kansas University track and field team, specializing in the 800 meter run. He said track and field actually left him in worse shape than a recent cycling accident when he once dived across a finish line in an attempt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a failed one â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to finish sixth in the race. Now, cycling helps fill that competitive void. Most weeks he rides his

on behalf of the Kansas Chamber, said the bill was constitutional. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is well settled law that this is constitutional, period,â&#x20AC;? Carter said. But state Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, disagreed. Holland said he was concerned that under the bill, public sector unions and their political action committees â&#x20AC;&#x153;are totally being excluded from participation in the political marketplace.â&#x20AC;? The dispute is over language in the bill that says public employee organizations are prohibited from spending any income from dues, fees or periodic payments to engage in political activity. The bill defines political activity as actions meant to influence elections and activities of a partisan or ideological nature. Holland said that portion of the bill was taken from model legislation

our residency programs at risk if the language described were to become law.â&#x20AC;? Last year, a major battle erupted over a bill banning the use of state funds for abortions. Among the many provisions of that bill was one that would have prevented state employees, including doctors in training at the medical center in Kansas City, Kan., from performing abortions on state property or state time. KU Medical Center officials voiced concerns that the accreditation of its obstetrics and gynecology program would be in danger under that provision. Legislators added a provision saying medical residents could do abortion training off-site, on their own time, for a year. But the Medical Center wanted a permanent exception. The bill was approved by the House but eventually died in the Senate af-

Rost said. Rost said he thinks some of the mental toughness he gained as an athlete would help him as a city commissioner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned that everybody has an excuse to not do something,â&#x20AC;?

Wagle said the allegation that the bill will inhibit free speech â&#x20AC;&#x153;cost us some votesâ&#x20AC;? when the measure was approved last week by the House. Lynn said HB 2033 needed more vetting, but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t indicate how long that would take. Meanwhile, state Sen. Greg Smith, R-Overland Park, who is a teacher in the Shawnee Mission school district, said teachers are pressured to join the KNEA. KNEA officials have denied that allegation. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

ter then-Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, sent it back to committee, citing concerns about the billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact on the medical center. In the new version of the bill, Kinzer and Rep. Steve Brunk, R-Wichita, said KU will use private dollars to pay the residents, rather than public funds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For purposes of this bill, if they have a process set up where those folks are truly, completely, hermetically sealed off from any state dollars, then this bill doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impact that and that is what they are working to do,â&#x20AC;? Kinzer said. Brunk said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the issue was completely resolved, but KU officials have been eager to seek a solution with the Legislature. Brunk introduced House Bill 2253 in the House Federal and State Affairs Committee. The bill states that the unborn child shall have all rights and privileges available to other people.

She was given a clean bill of health from her physician last fall and was elected by her colleagues in December as Senate president.

Nobel winner to speak at Dole Institute A Nobel Prize-winning economist will speak at Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dole Institute of Politics next week. Robert Merton, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1997, will give a talk called â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Next-Generation Solution for Funding Retirement: A Case Study in Design and Implementation of Financial Innovation.â&#x20AC;? The lecture will be at 1 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Dole Institute, 2350 Petefish Drive. Merton, a financial economist, won a Nobel Prize for his work on the BlackScholes-Merton model for pricing options, a method to determine the value of derivative securities. KU alumnus and donor David Booth also will provide comments at the event. Campus TV station KUJH-TV will live-stream the talk, and it can be viewed on the KU School of Business website, business.ku.edu.

can extract delicate DNA samples from tissue. These scientists once operated from cramped corners of labs where other work was going on, putting those tissues at risk of contamination that would ruin them. Some such samples would cost thousands of dollars to replace if ruined. Others could not be replaced at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can never go back to 1948 and collect that salamander from that stream again,â&#x20AC;? said Lori Schlenker, a collections and facilities coordinator at the institute. Another new lab is dedicated to DNA sequencing. The genetic information extracted earlier is replicated until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large enough to be measured, and powerful computers produce genetic maps that scientists can examine for evolutionary clues. And a five-times-bigger server room makes that computing power possible, without the need for IT workers to come in at 2 a.m. over the summer to fan off overheating units. New preparation labs allow scientists and groups of students to use expansive counter space to study animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; anatomy and prepare their bodies for storage. Ornithologist Mark Robbins said that he and maybe one or two students once had to cram into a closet-sized area for such work. In the morphology lab, where scientists examine skeletons and other anatomy, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll no longer need to gather up desk lamps from around the building to produce the proper amount of heat to take a specimen out of its case. New stations equipped with heat lamps can do that now. Those new cryogenic

tanks not only store tissue samples at much colder temperatures than electric freezers did before, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll protect those valuable specimens for up to three weeks in case of a power outage. If that seems excessive, consider that one research institution in New York lost 40 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of samples when Superstorm Sandy knocked out power for days last fall, Krishtalka said. And a new Geographic Information Systems lab, once just a row of computers along a wall, can help researchers track and predict the potential spread of disease-carrying mosquitoes or birds or the possible movement of species affected by climate change. Altogether, Krishtalka said, the new facilities and equipment can help the institute move beyond just recording information about lizards or birds into forecasting developments affecting humansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health, food and economies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when science becomes powerful,â&#x20AC;? Krishtalka said. The museum will show off the new facilities next week, allowing visitors to take tours beyond the museum into the labs where Biodiversity Institute scientists work. A dedication reception and tours of the renovated areas will run from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 12 (Charles Darwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday) at Dyche Hall. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, Krishtalka and others will speak.

‘Community’ back on NBC It’s hard to build an audience when all of your gags are inside jokes. Last week, NBC bid adieu to the clever and cartoonlike “30 Rock,” a series that brilliantly lampooned the corporate woes of its own flagging network. It was fun to watch, and it won NBC respect for being able to laugh at itself. But inside jokes did not translate into ratings. ‘‘Community” (7 p.m., NBC) returns tonight, with an even tinier frame of reference. It navel-gazes at its own backstage squabbles. At the end of the third season, Dan Harmon, the show’s creator and overall manager (“show runner” in Hollywoodspeak), was let go. And before the production of the fourth season was complete, actor Chevy Chase left the series. Tonight’s “Community” makes the most of this minor buzz by creating a show-within-a-show gimmick. As the gang prepares for its last year at community college, Abed (Danny Pudi) begins to freak out. He doesn’t want to leave school, ever. Britta (Gillian Jacobs) suggests he retreat to a “happy place.” In his mind, this is a sitcom starring himself. It’s an old-school take on “Community,” complete with a laugh track and knee-slapping jokes. And Chase’s character, Pierce, is replaced (without notice) by Fred Willard. In addition to Abed’s sitcom fantasy, tonight’s season premiere offers a parody of “The Hunger Games,” run by the school’s absurd, cross-dressing Dean Pelton (Jim Rash). Like all but a handful of network comedies, “Community” can lampoon only subjects falling safely within the realm of popular culture. And this is part of its problem.

friends and relatives. I love seeing all of their pictures and videos and reading their statuses and comments. I always make comments and give compliments on their pictures, etc. But is it wrong for me to be hurt and resentful when some of them completely ignore me in return? It is mainly the relatives who do this. These are the same people to whom I have sent checks in hard times and for every occasion, and it bothers me when I see that they comment to other friends, but act like I don’t exist. I hate to say anything to them, because they would resent me for it, but it hurts my feelings, and I don’t understand their behavior.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You might feel as if someone has caused you an unwarranted problem. Give this person some space so that he or she can see the damage that’s been done. Tonight: A must appearance. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Revise an idea by starting over from scratch. Carefully consider your different options, especially if they take you down a new path. Tonight: Out and about. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Your wit and adaptability emerge when dealing with a loved one. Remember, you have been known to overindulge this person. Tonight: Togetherness. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Others clearly dominate. Realize that the situation won’t change, no matter what you do. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You can get only so much done by yourself; however, with additional help, that situation could change.

Taming the beast: Overgrown shrubs

he beast of a honeysuckle at the back corner of my office building has been crying for a good rejuvenation pruning, and the time has finally come. Honeysuckle is one type of plant that can tolerate and benefit from rejuvenation or renewal pruning, a method of pruning that is best performed in early spring before new growth begins. This particular honeysuckle anchored the corner of the building for years and minded its own business. When another building went in nearby, the space between the two buildings was fitting for a courtyard garden and outdoor classroom. The honeysuckle was the only thing blocking the path — literally.

GARDENERS LOVE BEE BALM BOTH FOR ITS APPEARANCE and its ability to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

Author recommends adding these show stoppers to your flower bed By Mary Beth Breckenridge Akron Beacon Journal

All gardeners want their flower beds to put on a show. Like any Broadway production, that requires some star attractions. Stephanie Cohen calls those “plants with bling.” And the good news, she says, is that plenty of easy-care native plants have that kind of star power. Cohen is an author and educator who calls herself the Perennial Diva. “You gotta have a few stars in your garden every season” — plants with outstanding attributes like color or form that demand attention, Cohen said. They add to a garden what the right scarf or jewelry adds to a basic black dress. For the divas to stand out, a garden also needs filler plants, which she likened to the chorus. Otherwise your garden would be a little like Beyonce, JLo and Mariah Carey performing an ensemble version of the National Anthem. They’d all be clamoring for attention. Now that it’s garden-planning season, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites from Cohen’s list. Prepare to be wowed.

Velvet Queen wild ginger (Asarum shuttleworthii var. Harperi “Velvet Queen,” sometimes categorized by the genus name Hexastylis). This plant’s dark green leaves with silver markings make for a stunning ground cover. Unlike more common ground covers, however, wild ginger isn’t evergreen. “Get over it,” Cohen said. Who looks at ground cover

and 4.99 percent.

Approximately 24 percent of homes likely will experience declines of .01 percent to 1.99 percent.

 A little more than 8 percent of residential properties are expected to drop by 5 percent or more in value. On the other side of the ledger, about 7 percent of residential properties are expected to see an increase in value. The remaining 33 percent of properties are expected to have values steady from a year ago. The market in 2012, real estate professionals said, sent some mixed signals. Overall, real estate leaders were more than pleased because homes sales increased by nearly 28 percent from 2011 numbers. Real estate

in the winter, anyhow?

Little Lanterns or Pink Lanterns columbine (Aquilegia canadensis ‘Little Lanterns’ or ‘Pink Lanterns’). Both are shorter columbines — Little Lanterns with red and yellow flowers, Pink Lanterns with pink. These spring bloomers prefer light shade, but Cohen has seen them thrive in full sun. But beware: “They are promiscuous,” she said. They’ll crosspollinate and develop new colors, which she counsels her audience to just accept and enjoy.

Bluestar (Amsonia). “I’ve never met an amsonia I didn’t like,” Cohen said. These sun lovers play two roles in the garden: They produce sky blue flowers in spring, and then their foliage remains attractive all summer and turns yellow in fall. One new variety she especially likes is Blue Ice.

Fringed bleeding heart (Dicentra eximia). The more familiar form of bleeding heart is a spring favorite of many gardeners, but once it’s done blooming, that’s it. Fringed bleeding heart, on the other hand, will rebloom if it’s deadheaded, Cohen said. She often gets a good flowering in fall.

Jacob Cline, Raspberry Wine or Pink Lace bee balm (Monarda didyma “Jacob Cline,” “Raspberry Wine” or ‘Pink Lace). Gardeners love bee balm both for its appearance and its ability to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, but the plant is susceptible to powdery mildew. The varieties she recommends are resistant to the disease, which creates an unattractive powdery coating and can cause leaves to drop.

Jeana garden phlox (Phlox

agents sold 899 homes in Lawrence, according to numbers from the Lawrence Board of Realtors. “I would describe it as a pretty robust year compared to what we have had recently, and it kind of was about time,” said John Esau, president of the Lawrence Board of Realtors and an agent with Lawrence’s Keller Williams agency. But the Board of Realtors’ numbers also showed that the median selling prices for homes declined about 5 percent compared with 2011 numbers. The median selling price checked in at $159,900 in 2012. Esau said sellers were readjusting their expectations of what their homes were worth. But he said the higher number of sales — coupled with the fact that builders still aren’t going gangbusters with new housing starts —

paniculata ‘Jeana’). Like bee balm, garden phlox often suffers from mildew, but Cohen said she’s never had the disease on the variety Jeana. Its individual flowers are very small, but they grow in big, showy clusters.

Agastache. This plant is a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds. It can be an aggressive grower, but if deadheaded, it will flower from early summer right on till fall. “What more do you want from a perennial?” Cohen asked.

Prairie Glow brown-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba ‘Prairie Glow’). This newer variety has gorgeous flowers with burgundy, bronze and reddish-orange tones, which is probably why the plant is hard to find. Cohen has two words for her reaction to it: “plant lust.”

Cranberry Crush hardy hibiscus (Hibiscus moscheutos ‘Cranberry Crush’). This variety produces big, cranberry-colored blooms from summer to fall. If you grow it, though, be prepared to do battle with Japanese beetles. “Do not plant these next to your roses,” Cohen advised. “You’ll commit suicide.”

Fireworks or Solar Cascade goldenrod (Solidago rugosa “Fireworks” or S. shortii “Solar Cascade”). Goldenrod brings fall color to the garden, but it’s gotten a bad rap, and unfairly so. Many people think goldenrod triggers hay fever, but in fact its pollen is too heavy to be carried by the wind from the plant to your nose. It’s ragweed that makes you sneeze, not goldenrod. Cohen likes Fireworks for its arching habit and Solar Cascade for its smaller size.

means the inventory of homes for sale in the Lawrence area is shrinking. “When inventory is down, that usually means prices are going to come back up,” Esau said. “We’ve clearly been in a buyer’s market for several years, but I think we’ll start seeing a correction that favors the seller here shortly.” At the end of 2012, there were 369 active listings in Lawrence. That was down about 19 percent from the same time period a year ago. At the county courthouse, Miles is expecting the total market value of all real estate in the county — once you include commercial property and other types of real estate — to drop by 1 percent to 2 percent when he completes the appraisal process later this spring. Local cities and school districts and the County

Commission will watch those numbers closely because they will use the property value numbers this summer to determine tax rates to fund their 2014 budgets. When property owners receive their change-ofvalue notices in the mail, the notices will include information on how to file an appeal with county officials if owners believe the value is too high. But Miles said he hopes property owners will take a closer look at their properties before deciding to file an appeal. “One thing I would like for them to keep in mind is what do they think the true value of their home is?” Miles said. “What would they really be willing to sell it for? That’s what we’re trying to get at.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw.

Rejuvenation pruning will take the plant back to short stubs, from which new shoots will grow this spring. The honeysuckle can be shaped and kept in check with moderate summer pruning in the future. Although this might sound like a lot of work, the other option is removing it, grinding the stump, and purchasing a new plant that has a smaller mature size. Because this plant is established and should tolerate being kept a little smaller, leaving it seemed like a better option. To get the honeysuckle down to size, I will use loppers, pruners and a handsaw. Loppers and pruners with curved blades, also called bypass blades, are my weapons of choice because the curved blades cause less damage to remaining plant tissue than straight blades. I also prefer a curved blade handsaw that cuts on the backstroke. Kansas State University’s “Pruning Shrubs” guide says multiplestemmed shrubs like this honeysuckle can be pruned to six-inch stubs. A single-stemmed shrub like a burning bush should be left taller, with heading cuts made back to visible buds. Overgrown lilacs, forsythia, barberry, spirea, viburnums, weigela and yews are typically good candidates for rejuvenation pruning. Crape myrtles, butterfly bushes and hydrangeas may also benefit from rejuvenation

THIS HONEYSUCKLE was dying for a good renewal pruning.

pruning in years when the plants freeze back to the ground or suffer extreme winter injury. Junipers and pines are intolerant of heavy pruning like this and will have to be removed and replaced if they outgrow their space. For other species, check with an expert before taking a chance. For smaller, betterbehaving shrubs, prune as lightly as necessary to shape the plant and encourage new growth. This can be done from early spring to late summer, with care given to the plant’s bloom time. Early spring blooming plants such as lilac and forsythia are best pruned after they bloom; summer blooming plants are best pruned in early spring. Another thing to keep in mind about rejuvenation pruning is that the plant’s blooms may be lost for the year. To thin and shape shrubs for regular maintenance pruning, always prune back to another bud or branch. Make cuts at about a 45-degree angle on the stem and just far enough away from the bud to avoid damaging it. Stubs that are left too long will die back to the bud. A note about honeysuckle: There are about 180 species worldwide. The honeysuckle at my office, Lonicera fragrantissima, is adaptable to many soils and site conditions and is well-suited to northeast Kansas without being problematic. Some honeysuckles are known to choke out existing native vegetation and are considered invasive in some states, although they are yet to be designated as such in Kansas. Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) and Morrow honeysuckle (Lonicera morrowii) are the two biggest offenders and are referred to collectively as bush honeysuckle. If you have bush honeysuckle or know where it is growing, removal or control is the best option. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Amendment only way to cut budget

EDITORIALS

Clueless Some facts might help the state transportation secretary sell a proposed highway agency merger.

K

ansas Department of Transportation Secretary Mike King offered a stunning piece of testimony this week supposedly aimed at convincing state legislators to move forward on Gov. Sam Brownback’s plan to merge KDOT and the Kansas Turnpike Authority. His testimony should have exactly the opposite effect. The governor contends that the merger would save the state $15 million a year, and his budget reflects a $30 million saving over the next two years. However, when members of the Senate Ways and Means Committee asked King Tuesday how those savings would be achieved, he had no answer. “There has to be a significant amount of duplication,” he opined, but, “no we do not have that list.” King added that his department would start working with the KTA to find those savings if lawmakers approve the merger. Beg your pardon, Mr. King, but that is putting the cart before the horse. It would be irresponsible of legislators to approve such a merger — not to mention a $30 million budget cut — without having any idea how it would impact KDOT and Kansas Turnpike operations. As Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka, noted, “It seems like a number (the $30 million) just picked out of thin air because that made the books balance.” The KDOT secretary deserves credit for his honesty, but it may make Kansans wonder about other numbers plugged into the governor’s budget plan.

Foul law

WASHINGTON — The arguments against a constitutional amendment to require balanced budgets are various and, cumulatively, almost conclusive. Almost. The main arguments are: The Constitution should be amended rarely and reluctantly. Constitutionalizing fiscal policy is a dubious undertaking. Unless carefully crafted, such an amendment might instead be a constant driver of tax increases. A carefully crafted amendment that minimizes this risk could not pass until Republicans have two-thirds majorities in both houses of Congress, which they have not had since 1871. Furthermore, requiring a balanced budget would incite creative bookkeeping that would make a mockery of the amendment and the Constitution. For example, New York, which like 48 other states (all but Vermont) has some sort of requirement for a balanced budget, once balanced its by selling Attica Prison to itself: A state agency established to fund urban redevelopment borrowed $200 million in the bond market, gave the money to the state, and took title to the prison. The state recorded as income the $200 million its agency had borrowed, declared the budget balanced, then rented the prison from the agency for a sum adequate to service the $200 million debt. There is, however, one sufficient argument for a balanced-budget amendment. It is: George Mason University’s James Buchanan. This Nobel laureate economist, who died last month

The political class is incorrigible because it is composed of — let us say the worst — human beings. They respond to incentives of self-interest.” at 93, pioneered the “public choice” school of analysis, the premise of which is in the title of his 1979 essay “Politics Without Romance.” Public choice theory applies economic analysis — essentially, the study of how incentives influence behavior — to politics. Public choice analysis began in the 1960s, when Washington’s social engineers were busy as beavers building a Great Society, and confidence in government reached an apogee that prudent people hope will never be matched. Public choice theory demystified politics by puncturing the grand illusion that nourishes government growth. It is the fiction that elected politicians and government administrators are more nobly motivated, unselfish and disinterested than are persons acting in the private sector.

Buchanan extended the idea of the profit motive to the behavior of politicians and bureaucrats, two groups seeking to maximize power the way many people in the private sector maximize monetary profits. Publicsector actors often do this by transactions with rent-seekers — private factions trying to maximize their welfare by getting government to give them benefits, such as appropriations, tax preferences and other subsidies. Critics have dismissed as mere anti-government ideology the injection by public choice theory of realism into the analysis of collective action through politics. Such critics cling to a comforting — and, for advocates of ever-bigger government, a convenient — theory. It is that in politics and government, people, acting as voters or legislators or administrators, do not behave as people do in markets — they supposedly are not responsive to incentives for personal aggrandizement. Actually, Buchanan’s theory supplanted an ideology — the faith in government as omniscient and benevolent. It replaced it with realism about the sociology of government and the logic of collective action. The theory’s explanatory and predictive power, Buchanan wrote, derives from its “presumption that persons do not readily become economic eunuchs as they shift from market to political participation.” Concerning the cold logic of power maximization, Buchanan was as unsentimental

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 7, 1913: YEARS “Death last night AGO claimed Dr. LeonIN 1913 ard B. Powell at his home on Haskell avenue. Death was due to paralysis and a general breakdown, which was the direct result of hardships endured during the Civil War, Dr. Powell having served three years in the Union Army. He was 65 years old and was born in Kentucky September 3, 1847. When the Civil War broke out Leonard Powell was a young man, in fact only a boy but he responded to the call and enlisted at the age of 16.

OLD HOME TOWN

Kansas legislators should leave state university basketball schedules to their athletic departments. nder the heading of “surely Kansas legislators have something better to do,” state lawmakers should spend no more time on legislation that would require Kansas University and Kansas State University to play basketball with Wichita State University every year. The bill proposed by Sen. Michael O’Donnell, R-Wichita, would force the scheduling of both men’s and women’s games. His initial proposal applied only to KU-WSU, but he later added KSU to the mix. He also decided to drop the provision that would have stripped state funding for the universities if they refused to play each other because “I don’t want it to come across as punitive.” Good move. Perhaps Wichita legislators can be excused for becoming so excited about their WSU Shockers, who carried a 19-2 record and joined KU and KSU among the top 25 teams in both the Associated Press and the USA Today coaches polls. However, WSU was dropped from the AP poll this week after two losses and likely will fall off the coaches poll next week after a third straight loss on Tuesday. O’Donnell said the games required in his legislation would be certain sellouts. That may be true, but only as long as they are competitive. Is it ungracious to remind O’Donnell that the last time KU played WSU was in 1993, when KU defeated the Shockers 103-54? Intrastate rivalries are great, but state legislators should leave the scheduling to athletic officials, not try to write it into the statute books.

as Machiavelli, whose “The Prince,” the primer on realism that announced political modernity, appeared exactly half a millennium ago, in 1513. Concerning the naturalness of self-interested behavior — its foundation in unchanging human nature — Buchanan stood in a line of thinkers that includes James Madison, the foremost realist among the cohort of realists we call the Founders. Six days after Buchanan died, House Republicans provided dismal (and redundant) validation of public choice theory. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., supported by Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, proposed offsetting just $17 billion of the $60 billion aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy, and doing so by cutting just 1.63 percent from discretionary government spending. Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., chairman of the Appropriations Committee, said this would “slash and burn” important programs, and the measure failed because 71 Republicans opposed it. The political class is incorrigible because it is composed of — let us say the worst — human beings. They respond to incentives of self-interest. Their acquisitiveness is not for money but for the currency of power, which they act to retain and enlarge. This class can be constrained, if at all, not by exhorting them to become disinterested but by binding them with a constitutional amendment.

Real tragedies should guide gun laws You remember that serious conversation we were going to have about guns? Here’s how serious it has turned out to be. Recently, President Obama described himself in an interview with The New Republic as an avid skeet shooter. Conservatives scoffed at the claim, whereupon the White House promptly whipped out photographic proof. It was a meaningless exchange, except insofar as it suggests the White House implicitly accepts the dubious formulation, held by some gun advocates, that if one has no personal experience with guns, one cannot speak about guns. By extension of that logic, Rick Santorum can never say another word about abortion. But of course, he will. Because the logic is illogical. Not that that was the most unserious moment in this supposedly serious conversation. No, that came last week when Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that we must avoid new gun restrictions because guns are a citizen’s protection in the event the federal government decides to enslave us. It gets better. Meaning that

it gets worse. Gayle Trotter, senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, a right-wing think tank, testified that a woman ought to have access to a “scary-looking gun” to protect herself and her children in the event her home is invaded by “five violent attackers.” Trotter and LaPierre’s scenarios have one thing in common: their absolute farfetchedness. Tyranny is not imminent. And Trotter has apparently had too many viewings of Jodie Foster in “Panic Room.” Unfortunately, the lunacy of such fears is lost on the most rabid gun advocates, for whom

the Second Amendment is absolute. Mind you, the First Amendment is bounded by restrictions, the Fourth has been eviscerated by the courts, but somehow, the Second is supposed to be this inviolate thing that must not be restricted in the least, even though “the right to keep and bear arms” was guaranteed in an era of muskets. If we cannot restrict civilian ownership of militarygrade weapons — the most controversial of the gun control policies advocated by the White House — can we restrict civilian ownership of Stinger missiles? Or tanks? Surely a “scary Predator drone” would rout Trotter’s imaginary bad guys even faster than a “scary gun.” Not to give her any ideas. No, the point is, there is something wrong with a debate that requires us to treat the fantastical as if it were likely. But the only thing that is “likely” here is continued tragedy. This “serious conversation,” remember, got started on Dec. 14, with a massacre in a quiet little New England town. Since that day, the shooting has not stopped, nor even slowed. In Miami Gardens on Jan. 17, a 15-year-old boy was shot and killed.

In Albuquerque on Jan. 19, a 15-year-old boy allegedly shot his parents and three of his siblings to death. In Houston on Jan. 22, three people were shot on a community college campus. In Chicago on Jan. 29, a 15-year-old girl who’d performed at President Obama’s inauguration was shot to death. And in that same city, six days later, Shirley Chambers buried her last child. Ronnie Chambers, like all three of his siblings before him, was killed by gunfire. How must it feel to have lost all your children to guns? That is not hypothetical. It is one woman’s tragic reality. Too many deranged or criminal people have access to too much firepower and we are paying the price in carnage and blood. This is the ordinary everyday of American life — and death. That’s what we should be talking about. Not LaPierre’s doomsday scenarios or Trotter’s old movie plots. They ask us to consider what could happen. Better we consider what does. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CST each Wednesday on www.MiamiHerald.com.

TCU 62, KANSAS 55

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Setback as bad as it gets If James Naismith had known Kansas University one day would butcher the game of basketball as badly as it did in the first half of a stunning loss Wednesday night in Forth Worth, Texas, he not only might have thought twice about starting the program, he might have passed on the entire idea of inventing the sport. It looked that awful from my couch, where I watched because I thought the better story, Charlie Weis’ strong signing day, was in Lawrence. Certainly, that’s where the happier story was for KU. Weis landed enough strong prospects that his team should be able to pull off plenty of victories that now would be considered upsets. But it would be awfully tough to score one the magnitude of TCU’s 62-55 shocker. Has there ever been a bigger upset in Big 12 history? Has a first-place team ever played such a poor first half of basketball? Anybody? Didn’t think so. In a first half that set the sport back decades, Kansas scored 13 points and trailed by nine points to a school that came into the game with an 0-8 record in Big 12 play and came within single digits of an opponent just once, and that was in a nine-point loss to a dreadful Texas Tech squad. As usual, KU’s offensive struggles started with addled point guard play. But it certainly didn’t end there. Elijah Johnson and Naadir Tharpe combined to make five of 27 shots, three of 14 three-pointers. As a team, Kansas made three of 22 threes, two of the makes by Johnson too late to make a difference. Travis Releford scored one point. Ben McLemore misfired on all six three-point attempts. What a first half. It took 3:23 for either team to score, and it was TCU. It took 7:18 for Kansas to score, and it wasn’t until 6:06 remained in the first half that the Jayhawks scored their third and fourth points on Jeff Withey’s free throws. With 4:29 left, Withey’s jumper cut TCU’s lead to 17-6. Even in this year of peach-basket scoring rates casting a pall over college basketball from coast to coast, the scoreboard that wouldn’t budge seemed so bizarre. “This is not a bad loss,” Bill Self told Greg Gurley during a postgame radio interview. “It’s an unbelievably bad loss. ... We’re probably in the worst funk I’ve ever seen a Kansas team be in.” Self spoke to what the upset will do for the confidence of future KU opponents. “It’s not so much that we lost, but it’s that we were kind of the bullies of the league, and we let people think that they could whip us, and when they did, everybody now thinks that they can whip us,” Self continued. “I mean, hey, we just opened the floodgates. If we’re going to get everybody’s best shot two weeks ago, think now what it’s going to be like when everybody thinks they’re going to win?” It can’t possibly get worse than it was Wednesday night. Or could it?

Lowly TCU stuns Jayhawks By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Kansas University did much more than lose a basketball game on Wednesday to TCU, the last-place team in the Big 12 Conference. The Jayhawks, according to coach Bill Self, had one of the most putrid performances in school history, evidenced by a 13-point — yes, 13-point — first half that contributed mightily to a 6255 setback in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. “It’s the worst team Kansas has ever put on the floor since Dr. Naismith was here,” Self said after the Jayhawks suffered back-toback losses for the first time since the 2005-06 season,

when KU fell to Kansas State and Missouri in consecutive games. “I think he had some bad teams when he lost to Topeka YMCA in his first couple years. The first half (in which KU hit 3 of 22 shots) ... there hasn’t been a team play worse than that offensively. That hasn’t happened ... anywhere. “Maybe Northern Illinois. Earlier this year, they made one basket in a half. The great thing,” Self cracked, “is we had three assists on our three baskets. We were really sharing the ball.” KU, which trailed, 22-13, at halftime, had its lowestscoring half at least since the 1988-89 season when halftime records started to be kept. Previous low was 18 points against Iowa State

back in 1999. The previous low in a half in the Self era was 20 points versus Arizona on Nov. 21, 2005. This happened against a TCU team (10-12) that in opening league play 0-8 had lost seven games by double figures. Its closest loss was a nine-pointer to Texas Tech, the other margins of defeat 18, 11, 13, 13, 21, 26 and 17 points. “What is the right word to assess the first half? Futility ... would that be a word?” said Self, whose Jayhawks (19-3 7-2) trailed 10-4 with 6:15 left in the first half. The Jayhawks also trailed, 20-6, with four minutes left in an effort described as “embarTRAVIS RELEFORD, FRONT, TRIES TO rassing.” GAIN CONTROL of a possession beneath Please see KANSAS, page 4B TCU’s Adrick McKinney.

Weis: Class permits ‘dramatic’ overhaul MORE ONLINE Q For more

By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

The official signing-day release from Kansas University’s football program says the 2013 Jayhawks return 35 letter-winners and 12 starters from last season’s 1-11 team. Those who earned letters will get to keep them, but not everyone will be keeping his job. That much was made

abundantly clear by Charlie Weis on Wednesday afternoon when KU’s secondyear head coach talked for the first time about the incoming recruiting class that has been one of the most anticipated groups in recent memory. “We’ve been putting a lot of tread on our tires and went a lot of places and have reaped the benefits of having several fine young men

to bring into our program,” Weis said. “I’m very pleased with how things turned out.” The bulk of this year’s class (18 of 25) is made up of junior-college prospects Weis believes are ready to play right away. Although Weis is still relatively new to juco recruiting, he seems to have figured out that there’s a difference between slowly integrating high school athletes into a program and

throwing more mature and experienced players onto the field immediately. If things go the way Weis believes they can, several members of the Class of 2013 will hold down key roles this fall. “Personnel-wise, the overhaul on defense is going to be dramatic,” Weis said. “I don’t think it’s going to be slight. I think it’s going to be Please see SIGNING DAY, page 3B

Griner, Bears rout KU women J-W Staff and Wire Reports

WACO, TEXAS — Kansas University needed to play a near-perfect game to have a chance at beating Baylor. With the Jayhawks only getting two points out of Angel Goodrich, they had no shot. Goodrich was held to just two points in the Jayhawks’ 86-45 loss to top-ranked Baylor on Wednesday night. She came into the game averaging 14 points. She hit

KU’s first basket but then missed her eight other fieldgoal attempts and was 0-for6 from behind the threepoint line. Kansas’ other offensive threat, Carolyn Davis, had been second in the conference in field-goal percentage but made just three of her 12 field-goal attempts and finished with six points, four in the second half. She had been scoring nearly 16 points a game.

“I think Odyssey (Sims) is one of the best perimeter onball defenders in the country,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “She gets into Angel, and Angel got sped up a little bit. We’re a team that’s kind of built to play in the paint, and that’s difficult to do against these guys with that kind of size.

Jones won’t play for Iowa State AMES, IOWA — Point guard Maurice Jones won’t play for Iowa State next season after the Cyclones lost an appeal with the NCAA over his eligibility. Iowa State spokesman Mike Green says Jones wasn’t academically eligible to play when he left USC in early September.

Big 12 Men No. 22 Oklahoma St. 69, Baylor 67, OT STILLWATER, OKLA. — Michael Cobbins blocked a shot then converted a fast-break layup with two-tenths of a second left in overtime, lifting Oklahoma State over Baylor on Wednesday night. Marcus Smart scored 14 points and Markel Brown added 13 for Oklahoma State (16-5, 6-3 Big 12 Conference), which blew a 14-point lead in the final 7:40 of regulation and twice trailed by three points in overtime before extending its winning streak to four games. Baylor (14-8, 5-4) had a chance to win in the final seconds of overtime, but Cobbins blocked a shot attempt by A.J. Walton under the basket, then raced to the other end and made the winning layup. Markel Brown intercepted a desperation inbound pass by Baylor’s Jacob Neubert to end the game.

Playing in front of color-coordinated home crowd, Arizona (20-2, 9-2 Pac-12) came out flat and needed most of the first half to catch the Cardinal. The Wildcats stayed close in a backand-forth second half until Lyons took over, leading them to their seventh straight win over Stanford. No. 11 Louisville 68, Rutgers 48 PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Wayne Blackshear scored a career-high 19 points and hit a three-pointer to ignite a 23-2 run early in the second half. Russ Smith added 14 points and six rebounds and fellow guard Peyton Siva had nine points and seven assists as the Cardinals (19-4, 7-3 Big East) won its third straight game.

Area prep athletes sign with college teams basmith@ljworld.com

Wednesday, better known in the recruiting world as national signing day, marked not only the culmination of high school careers, but also the beginning of the future for numerous area high school athletes who will move on to compete in the collegiate ranks. And even more will follow suit in the days to come. It started bright and early at Free State High, where three football seniors made their decisions official before the start of the school day. Demarko Bobo signed with Butler Community College, TJ Cobbs with Ottawa Uni-

versity and Tye Hughes with Baker University. Later, in the afternoon, Lawrence High football had its own ceremony, with eight players signing their national letters of intent. Three pairs of Lions inked with the same program, extending their time as teammates. Jordan Brown and Kharon Brown will play at Baker. Erick Mayo and Brad Strauss will move on to Northwest Missouri State. Tyrone Jenkins and Will Thompson signed with Fort Scott Community College. Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other signees were Asaph Jewsome (Highland Community College) and Drake Hofer (William Jewell College). When Baker football coach Mike Grossner un-

dramatic. And the best part is, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be solid for years.â&#x20AC;? With all four starting spots open in the secondary and the Jayhawks coming off three straight seasons of sub-par play on the defensive line, KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest class was formed, at least in part, to address those glaring weaknesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at the volume of front-line juniorcollege guys on the defensive side of the ball, we could have a whole bunch of starters coming out of that group,â&#x20AC;? Weis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to downplay anyone because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all in the mix.â&#x20AC;? Weis is convinced a juco playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience, advanced age and burning desire to prove he can play Div. I football are traits that will lead to winning. How soon? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to think that things could happen in a hurry,â&#x20AC;? Weis said. Now that this class is signed, sealed and almost fully delivered, Weis said he and his staff could begin thinking that way a little more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, as you can start plugging different players into that vision, things became a lot easier,â&#x20AC;? he said. Upgrading the talent and adding depth was not the only reason the Jayhawks went after so many junior-college prospects this offseason. There also was the idea of motivating the returning players. So far, that seems to be working, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They run on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons,â&#x20AC;? Weis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And watching that (on Tues-

Emily Brigham (University of South Dakota) and Madison Estell (Hillsdale College) are signing for track and field. Molly Kelley (McPherson College) is the lone volleyball signee.

freshman Colin Spencer from defensive back to running back in time for spring ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us to get thin at running back,â&#x20AC;? Weis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I thought (Spencer was) too good of a prospect to get buried walking in the door. One of my plans that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna do on offense â&#x20AC;Ś he might be useful for what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna do, whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this year or next year.â&#x20AC;?

compete for a starting role. Although Mesh was the only walk-on Weis could identify, several others have emerged during the past week, some from KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk-on tryouts and others via commitments. Two such players became public Wednesday, as Marian High running back Michael Whitfield, of Mishawaka, Ind., and John Wirtel, a 6-foot-3, 207-pound long snapper from Chicago, both announced they would be coming to KU as preferred walk-ons. Wirtel is one of the toprated long snappers in the country, and Whitfield, a 5-11, 190-pound back who recorded more than 1,800 yards and 31 touchdowns as a senior, comes from the same high school as current KU long snapper Reilly Jeffers.

Midyear transfer update Ten of KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25-member recruiting class signed letters of intent in December, but only eight of those players have made it to campus. Wednesday, Weis addressed the academic hold-up that has kept defensive lineman Marquel Combs and offensive lineman Zach Fondal off campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Combs isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on campus yet. No, Fondalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on campus yet, and do I know exactly when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna be here? No, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that either,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But welcome to the world of junior-college recruiting. They will be here. You will see them on the field when we play in September, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you exactly when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna be here.â&#x20AC;? Walk-on news While evaluating this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class, Weis included Hutchinson Community College place kicker Michael Mesh, a preferred walk-on who will join the team this summer and

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next? With three spots still available in the current class, Weis said he still had â&#x20AC;&#x153;some action going on,â&#x20AC;? but added that no future additions were imminent. Last year, KU picked up a couple of players after signing day, and the same could happen this year. According to Weis, one thing that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen is KU adding a player just to fill a roster spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With those three that are left, if we were going to take a college graduate, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing in a guy we think can start,â&#x20AC;? Weis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, a guy who can be a difference-maker. Other than that, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really listening.â&#x20AC;?

TCU 62, KANSAS 55

TCU FANS FLOOD THE FLOOR OF THE DANIEL-MEYER COLISEUM after the Horned Frogs defeated the Kansas Jayhawks, 62-55, Wednesday in Fort Worth, Texas.

TCU coach takes upset in stride ————

Horned Frogs’ Johnson: ‘Let’s not kid ourselves’ By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Texas Christian University basketball coach Trent Johnson didn’t appear to be overly excited following his team’s stunning 62-55 victory over No. 5 Kansas University on Wednesday. There was a reason for that, he said. “I’ve got a lot of respect for the team we just beat. I’ve got a lot of respect,” Johnson said. “That guy that coaches that team (KU coach Bill Self) is not one of the top five best

coaches in this country; he’s one of the top five coaches in basketball, period. “Trust me when I tell you, they might as well crown them now. Teams go through lulls.” Johnson only took partial credit for his team’s first conference win as part of the Big 12. “The only way you beat a great team, a wellcoached team, a team with the kind of tradition they have (is for them) to not be at their best,” Johnson said. “Let’s not kid ourselves.” Johnson finally let out a

big exhale with seven seconds left and his team up eight points while at the free-throw line. The 14th-year coach had seen too many crazy comebacks in his life to take it easy before that. “It means a lot for everybody who’s a fan,” Johnson said. “It means a lot for these kids, because they were struggling.” TCU (10-12, 1-8 Big 12) entered the contest winless in conference play. The Horned Frogs’ closest game was a nine-point home loss to Texas Tech on Jan. 5.

“Obviously, we’ve had tough years, and we’re having a tough year right now,” TCU senior Garlon Green said. “But this is a big win, and we need to carry this momentum.” TCU benefited from a great start defensively. Johnson’s defensive plan was for his players not to let KU center Jeff Withey get position deep while also jamming KU guard Ben McLemore to take away his initial move. The Jayhawks scored just two points in the game’s first 12:05, making

one of 13 field goals with seven turnovers. “We knew going in that we were going to have to play extremely well offensively and defensively — extremely hard — and they were going to have to help us,” Johnson said. “When I say help us, obviously, they missed a lot of shots they probably would (normally) make.” It was TCU’s first victory over a top-five opponent in 21 tries. “We come out here every day, put our heart and soul into it every night, every morning,” Green

said. “I’ve grown up, since being 3 years old, having a dream to beat Kansas or beat anybody. I’ve always believed in myself.” At the end of his news conference, Johnson asked to be excused so he could try to get four hours of sleep instead of his customary three. He was heading on a recruiting flight at 9 this morning, he said. And after that, TCU had seven conference games to go — including a Feb. 23 rematch against KU. “We have to go to Lawrence,” Johnson said, “and that’s not going to be fun.”

“Yes, I am,” senior Kevin Young (six points, nine rebounds) said, asked if he was embarrassed. “There are a lot of great names to wear the jersey before us. We embarrassed not only us but them. We played horrible. “We deserved what we got,” added Young, who There came off are a lot the bench in favor of of great Perry Ellis names to (no points, 10 minutes) wear the for the first jersey time in 19 before us. games in a We emmove Self said was barrassed designed to not only “get Perry us but going.” Of the them.

Self didn’t see this one coming. “We actually were very competitive Monday and Tuesday,” he said of the team’s response to a home loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday. “And we had a great shootaround today. Our coaches said it’s the best we looked all year.” Of the lineup switch, Self said: “Well, Kevin will give us the same

thing whether he starts or doesn’t. That didn’t have anything to do with anything. I was really trying to hope that Perry could get going. Obviously, it didn’t happen. If we could start three guys, we’d do that. They make us run five out there. I don’t know who deserves to start.” Young said: “I did it (come off bench) last year. I have no problem with it. I lacked energy today. I don’t know why. I will try my hardest to not let that happen again.” KU, which hit 29.5 percent of its shots and just three of 22 threes, was led by Ben McLemore, who had 15 points off 6-of-16 shooting. Jeff Withey had 12 points, and Naadir Tharpe had 11 off 2-of-15 shooting. The Jayhawks will meet Oklahoma at 3 p.m. Saturday in Norman, Okla.

KANSAS CENTER JEFF WITHEY (5) BLOCKS A SHOT by TCU’s Connell Crossland in the Jayhawks’ 62-55 loss Wednesday in Fort Worth, Texas. Withey finished with three blocks.

Gary Bedore’s KU basketball notebook FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Kansas University senior center Jeff Withey admits team morale is “pretty low” following Wednesday’s 62-55 loss to TCU, the last-place team in the Big 12 Conference. “Losing two in a row is tough,” Withey said after scoring 12 points off 4-of-6 shooting and grabbing eight rebounds in 33 minutes. “We have a lot more to play. We have a quick turnaround. We play at OU (Oklahoma) Saturday. We can’t ever let one (loss) become two, which we’ve already done. Now we have to nip it in the bud. We still have a chance to be great.” KANSAS’ NAADIR THARPE (1) DRIVES TO THE BASKET late in the Jayhawks’ loss.

We’re not going to post Carolyn under the rim and have Brittney (Griner) add to her blocked-shot list. We have no intention of doing that.” Griner has 678 blocks in her Baylor career, an NCAA record for men or women. “They would drive in and kick it when they saw me come to help. So, not too much going in when I was in there,” Griner said. “When I came out, they started going in a little bit more. But I didn’t really see them coming into the paint too much.” Griner, who is also the Big 12 Conference’s alltime leading scorer, had 19 points in the first half. She finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds. The 6-foot-8 senior moved into 10th all-time on the Div. I scoring list, passing Penn State great Kelly Mazzante. Griner has 2,929 points in her career. Brooklyn Pope and Sims each added 13 for Baylor (21-1, 11-0 Big 12) while Kimetria Hayden had 11 points. Cece Harper had 11 points, and Asia Boyd scored 10 for Kansas (14-7, 5-5). Baylor led 45-24 at the break and just blew Kansas away to open the second period. Baylor opened the second half on a 22-5 run, with Pope scoring seven and Hayden hitting back-to-back layups. After a Kansas turnover, Sims heaved a three-quarter court pass to Griner under the basket for an easy layup that gave Baylor a 6829 lead with 13:11 to play, prompting Henrickson to call her fourth timeout of the game. Kansas then scored the

Baylor then went on another run, with Sims hitting a pair of baskets and Niya Johnson making consecutive layups, leaving Baylor with a 78-33 lead with 6:55 remaining in the game. Kansas went nearly five minutes without a point. “Yeah, they got us in transition,” Henrickson said. “We didn’t get to the offensive glass. Odyssey pushed hard in transition. We didn’t get on the ball. We tried to play some zone, but she’s loose, and a great passer and a great point guard in transition.” Baylor took control early, using a 22-4 run to go up 29-9 with 8:07 left in the first half.
