ITP: Cheick Debut, Loyola, and Kentucky Loses

Cheick Diallo made his debut and had a huge impact on the Jayhawks. Kansas rolled through Loyola, but does a more difficult challenge await Kansas this weekend in Allen Fieldhouse?

The Jayhawks beat Loyola behind a strong second half and a great effort from Cheick Diallo, who made his presence known in Lawrence on Tuesday. Wayne Selden continues to be terrific, but is he the most detrimental piece to Kansas going foward? Ryan Landreth and Daniel Cunningham also react to Bill Self’s interesting claim that Jamari Traylor was the “MVP” of the game.

Inside the Paint logo.Kentucky, for the first time since Daniel took over as co-host on Inside the Paint, lost a regular season basketball game this week. Does this change our opinions on whether or not we’d trade Bill Self for John Calipari? We recap all of the madness from around the country and the Big 12 before recapping recent Jayhawks in the NBA performances.

Concluding the show is the preview of tomorrow’s matchup with the Harvard Crimson in Allen Fieldhouse. While Harvard isn’t as good as it has been the last few years, could this game be more difficult than it appears to be at this point?
