a couple of bad ones today. For the most part, he takes open shots, makes a decent percentage. He’s a good rebounder. He doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes.â€? As far as senior center Black, who along with freshman center Embiid had eight rebounds, Self said, “He’s great with our young guys. He hits on ’em every day, and he applauds ’em every time they hit back. It’s been fun to watch.â€? Sophomore forward Ellis, who had 17 points and seven boards, has been impressive. “Perry could easily be our leading scorer. He’s played great,â€? Self said. “He’s more confident. He’s matured. He wants, ‘Give me more; give me more (coaching).’ He’ll have a big year for us, I feel.â€? Asked about freshman wing Greene, who had 10 points, including two threes, Self said: “He has labored as much as any of the newcomers in figuring out what we are doing. Brannen has done fine. What you guys see isn’t real because (you see) the guys playing in pickup games, and we see them in practice. He’s starting to get it. I thought today he did a couple of nice things.â€? Self stressed that players are involved in a competitive situation. Does he have a rotation in mind entering the Oct. 29 preseason opener against Pittsburg State? “No, not really,â€? Self said. “I think Conner (two threes, three assists) will be so much better in two weeks than he is now. Frank will be so much better in two weeks than he is now. Joel will be so much better ‌ Brannen Greene. I haven’t figured it out, but I do know there’s a core 5-67 I know who is going to play, and those other guys are fighting for minutes.â€? !

10,000 fans on hand: There were no problems with fans storming the gates as they did at Late Night in the Phog. “It’s a great crowd,� Self said. “Our fans are unbelievable.� Recruits Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones were in attendance.

Self said KU didn’t hold an open scrimmage just because the country’s No. 1- and 5-ranked players are in town on official visits. “The reason we did it primarily was because of the way Late Night ended with us not being able to get everybody in the building,� Self said. “It is pretty special knowing these people do turn out to watch their Jayhawks. I know for our guys that’s probably the primary reason why they love playing here so much, because of the love they receive from our fans.� !

Gap apparent: Self was asked if there’s a gap between the returnees and the six freshmen: “I think from a talent standpoint there is a gap. Our new guys are talented,â€? he said. “From a knowledge standpoint there is a gap. Our new guys don’t know what they are doing.

Smart on Wiggins: Oklahoma State standout Marcus Smart spoke about Wiggins-mania to USA Today. “They are saying he is the best college player there is and he has not even played a game yet. Of course that hypes me up. It is all talk. He still has to put his shorts on one leg at a time like I do. It is all potential. I am not saying he can’t do it. But he has not done it yet,� Smart said. After calling him a “great player,� Smart added: “I wouldn’t say he is overrated. I would just say there is a lot of pressure on him right now. He is under a microscope from the world that is bigger than anybody would think, bigger than he knows.� To read the USA Today article, go to http://usat. ly/1aXCpUe
