Podcast: Orlando Classic Recap & Michigan State Preview

The Inside the Paint podcast is now on Rock Chalk Blog, and Ryan Landreth and Daniel Cunningham are here to break down the past week in Kansas basketball.


The Jayhawks have caught fire in Orlando, defeating Rhode Island and Tennessee to advance to the finals of the Old Spice Classic tournament. Ryan and Daniel discus what’s gone right for KU in the last two games and get you ready for Sunday’s championship matchup with #20 Michigan State.

Perry Ellis, Frank Mason and Cliff Alexander have all had major success for Kansas thus far in the tournament – is this a sign of things to come? How much should we worry about Jamari Traylor’s struggles? Who’s somebody to watch in tomorrow’s Michigan State game, and is Oklahoma the Jayhawks’ biggest challenger for the Big 12 crown after their strong showing in Atlantis? You have questions, and we have answers.
