Without Josh and Daniel available once again, Scott Chasen steps in to fill the shoes left behind. He and Ryan recap Kansas’ victory over the super-tall UC Irvine, the big-man rotation that seems to be molding into form, and the recipe for KU’s success in the future with its excellent point-guard duo.

Inside the Paint logo.The big focus for this show is on the non-conference assessment as a whole. We recap the 12 game slate and talk about who has overachieved and underachieved thus far. We re-examine some of our prop bets from season’s beginnings and re-preview the Big 12 at this stage in the year.

Conference play begins tomorrow when the Jayhawks take on Baylor in defense of their 11-straight Big 12 crowns. The Bears present their usual challenge on the defensive glass, but this year, Scott Drew’s team is much more balanced offensively and figure to give Kansas a game. We preview the matchup and talk about the other games in Big 12 play.
