The Jayhawks celebrated Thanksgiving week by winning the 2016 CBE Hall of Fame Classic tournament at Sprint Center, but many people are uneasy about the performance of the frontcourt.

Kansas, which has won four in a row, defeated Georgia on Tuesday night to take the CBE Classic. Frank Mason, Josh Jackson, and Devonte’ Graham were terrific, but the frontcourt managed just five points as a unit. We talk about the inconsistencies of Landen Lucas, Carlton Bragg, and Udoka Azubuike, and what plan KU should seek to improve their performances.

It’s the most fun week of the nonconference slate in college basketball, as early-season tournaments are everywhere and upsets are occurring by the day. We go through the highlights from all of the notable early-season events, and then we answer your #AskRCB questions and do Jayhawks in the NBA.

Tonight, Kansas will begin a string of five straight home games when the Jayhawks take on the UNC Asheville Bulldogs at Allen Fieldhouse. We preview the game and go over what we want to see out of Kansas this weekend.
