Kansas Basketball.Tese two words all mean some-thing dierent to every person as-sociated with the University.Many see it as the apex o theyear, when or two hours twice aweek, we stop studying or worry-ing about classes and just enjoy basketball.Anywhere you go on campus,you can nd stories about their re-lationship with this program thatdenes this institution.For me, it’s always been a majorpart o what I look orward to eachyear.Growing up in Lenexa, a mere 30miles, rom Lawrence I was neverar away rom Allen Fieldhouse.Much o my childhood, likemany kids who grew up in Kansas,revolved around how the Jayhawksseason would are.For many games I would gatherwith my amily to watch on televi-sion or tune into the radio and lis-ten to Bob Davis and Max Falken-stien on the radio.It became the routine on week-day nights or Saturday aernoons.Listen to the Jayhawks and see an-other impressive victory.As I moved into becoming a journalist, my outlook changed onthe Jayhawks. I don’t get swept up inthe pregame rituals or the mystiqueo the Fieldhouse while I’m typingaway on my computer courtside.It’s still hard to ignore the his-tory. Tere are trophies burstingout o the Booth Hall o Athletics,banners covering raers and pic-tures plastered on the tunnels o the Fieldhouse.Although the basketball seasonhas started, the basketball preview is set up to give inormation orour readers to use throughout theseason.An important part o our sec-tion is to not only highlight themen’s basketball season, but alsothe women’s basketball prospectsor the season.Te section has schedules, Big 12previews and some posters o someo your avorite Jayhawks.So enjoy fipping through thissection and getting acquainted withthe Jayhawks that will be ollowedthroughout the next ew months.Tis is Kansas basketball seasonolks. Let the crazy ride begin.

Student camping rules or bas-ketball games could change aerthe rst regular season home gameat a meeting on Nov. 10.Te tradition o camping adds tothe one-o-a-kind basketball expe-rience o the Jayhawk community.However, the rules o camping canbe conusing and rustrating, es-pecially or reshmen. Students,including rey Johnson, a seniorrom Leesburg, Va., run camping.Johnson helps organize campingand supervise the lottery.Lotteries take place at 6 a.m. theday aer a home game. Groupsmust have at least ve students toqualiy or the main lottery, but thegroups cannot be larger than thirty members. Having larger groupsgives students an advantage be-cause students are granted one draw or the lottery or every ve groupmembers. According to Johnson,“Te lottery sets up camping, andthe order o the camping list.” Tecamping list determines the orderthat the groups will get to choosetheir seats on gameday.Te process is ull o rules andrequirements to make it to game-day.“We’re going to all le into thegym and sit down in the bleachersbehind the basket, and then you’llhave your groups signed up and I’llstart calling roll. And everyone willdraw a number,” Johnson said.Students draw numbers that rep-resent their place in line or seatingat the next home game. However,ollowing the lottery, students mustmaintain their position by camping.According to Johnson, the numbero days and time spent campingwill be determined by how many groups are camping and when thenext home game is. Te largergames, or which seats are more indemand, camping may last romone home game until the next. Forsmaller games, it may be cut short.Students can also choose to stopcamping i there is an unanimous vote to cancel the rest o the camp-ing process or that game.However, while camping is go-ing on, students must have a groupmember present at all times. Dur-ing the week, there must be a mem-ber o the group at the campingpost rom 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. On theweekends, someone must be pres-ent between the hours o 8 a.m. and10 p.m. Roll can be called or thecamping groups at any given timethroughout the process. I a groupmember is not present or i they donot announce their presence, thegroup will be eliminated rom theoverall camping list.On gameday, students can bring15 group members at one time andsave seats or the remaining mem-bers. “I the game is at 7, KU Ath-letics people will pass out laminatednumbers at 4,” Johnson said. Stu-dent camping groups must arrive atAllen Fieldhouse three hours priorto game time.According to Johnson, on Nov.10, “Aer the rst regular seasonhome game, which is Nov. 9, aregoing to have a rule meeting anda vote and an ofcial rule set puttogether.Students who wish tolearn more about camping or takepart in the vote should attend thismeeting.

“I’m excited, I like our guys,” Sel said.“We have great experience with our seniorclass, they’ve been through a lot o battlesand then we have a lot o puppies, sevenreshmen. I think it will be a good team intime.”Te biggest challenge acing the mostrecent installment o the Jayhawk ranchisewill be replacing the leadership and scoringlost with the departures o national playero the year candidate Tomas Robinsonand our-year starter yshawn aylor.Last season the aylor-Robinson duo ledthe Jayhawk star eet, accounting or 46.3percent o the Jayhawks scoring.“(Tomas) gave us an air o toughnessthat made other players think that they were tough and erce because he led by ex-ample,” Sel said. “Tat’s something we’vegot to get our guys to buy into.”Te backcourt returns two o its startersrom last season’s run to the title game inh year senior and jack-o-all-trades ra- vis Releord and a ormer ve-star recruitElijah Johnson, who patiently waited be-hind others or his chance to lead.“Yeah, I think (the tournament success)helps, and me being an upper classman isone o the reasons they look up and listento me,” Releord said. “And I’ve been hereve years, so I kind o know a bunch abouthow coach wants things to go about aroundhere.”Te ront court will also rely on a pairo seniors or leadership. Kevin Young is ahigh-energy player, who spent most o lastyear as a spark of the bench.Te other, center Jef Withey made greatstrides last season, emerging as one o thetop deenders in the nation down low, buthis ofense was inconsistent despite benet-ing greatly rom the presence o Robinson.“I’m denitely going into this seasonwith a diferent mindset than I did last yearwhere I was just ocused on not being theweak link in the team,” Withey said. “Tisyear I just want to be more aggressive bothofensively and deensively.”Despite the heavy toll the losses o Rob-inson and aylor will have on the team, theother Big 12 coaches unanimously pickedthe Jayhawks to repeat and win the leagueor a ninth consecutive season.And nationally, the sentiment is thesame, with Kansas starting the seasonranked seventh in the nation in both theAP and the Coaches poll.“I eel like even when we didn’t getpicked, we still had a target on our back,”Releord said. “A lot o teams want to comeout and beat us. But this year, same goalswe have every year since I’ve been here towin the Big 12 and try to get a good seed tomake a good run in the tournament.”Whether this team ullls the premoni-tions o the Big 12 coaches and the pollsrests in how the group o seniors handlestheir time as the leaders o the Jayhawks,and how they help the younger players de- velop as they make the transition to collegebasketball.“I don’t think there’s a jubilation thatgoes with winning the league that youwould anticipate with our guys, becauseI think they take the approach that this istheir job,” Sel said.

Camping rules to change in early November 
bAsketbAllRetuRn OF the jAYhAwks
en years ago,
in a Fieldhouse not so ar away, a shockwave
 
ripped through the mortar that holds the
oundation o Kansas basketball together
as longtime leader Roy Williams le the program
or his alma mater ater guiding the Jayhawks
 
to consecutive Final Four appearances in his nal
two seasons coaching in the eclipse o Mount Oread.
Te Jayhawk leadership handed the controls o the intergalacticempire to Bill Sel,
and under his tutelage they experienced a winningstreak never beore seen in the Jayhawk 
base that orbits Naismith drive.Kansas won eight consecutive Big 12 titles and Sel vanquished
his predecessoron the only two occasions they’ve met, and both became the deepest tournament runsSel 
has ever made.
Now, less than sixth months aer leading Kansas to the national championshipgame in what
was billed as a ‘rebuilding year,’
Sel aces a new challenge o taking a teamwith a core group o our seniors and a tal
ented reshmen class as the Jayhawksattempt to win their ninth straight Big 12 title.
