SMU signee Emmanuel Mudiay threw down a ridiculous alley-oop at the Jordan Brand Classic last night as the 6-foot-5 future Mustang caught a lob from Ohio State commit D’Angelo Russell and spun to finish in a powerful fashion.

Mudiay finished with 19 points in the game for the West, who fell to the East, 158-147, in the highest scoring Jordan Brand Classic in the game’s history.

Bill Self signs $10,000 check for KU student


Late Night in the Phog is typically a night to remember for Kansas fans. For Kansas student Jerrod Martin Castro, Friday night’s event is one he won’t forget.

Castro, a sophomore, was selected as a contestant for a $10,000 giveaway. The only thing standing in the way of a big payday was a half-court shot. Brennan Bechard, the Kansas director of basketball operations, attempted the long-distance shot and hit nothing but net.

Kansas head coach Bill Self signed a $10,000 check on the spot.
