The letter obtained by the newspaper said the families “most strongly object to the manner in which the ‘internal investigation’ of mistreatment and abuses by the coaching staff was handled and is currently being handled by your office. We find this protocol unacceptable as well as completely disrespectful to the student athletes and their families affected by the coaches and coaching staff involved in these patterns of abuse.

  • Kansas adds SMU guard Nic Moore to the roster for World University Games

    Updated: Thu, May 21, 2015

    A week ago, Kansas coach Bill Self said he would likely add a guard to the roster to bolster numbers for the Jayhawks’ upcoming trip to the World University Games, where KU will represent the United States in South Korea. That guard will be SMU senior Nic Moore, who has accepted an invitation to join KU’s Team USA roster for the international event from July 3-14 in Gwanju. Moore, the reigning American Athletic Conference player of the year, is coached at SMU by former KU coach Larry Brown and former Self assistant Tim Jankovich, SMU’s associate head coach. The Jayhawks were in need of an extra perimeter player when Brannen Greene was ruled out of the tournament after having offseason hip surgery.

  • BRIEF: Kansas State women promote Jacie Hoyt-Capra to assistant basketball coach

    Updated: Thu, May 21, 2015

    MANHATTAN – Jacie Hoyt-Capra is the newest assistant coach for the Kansas State women’s basketball team. Hoty-Capra, a Hoxie native who played at Wichita State, was promoted to the position Thursday. She was serving as the team’s coordinator of recruiting operations under Jeff Mittie. Mittie hired Hoyt-Capra last year following a three-year stint as a Nevada assistant under former Wichita State coach Jane Albright. Hoyt-Capra had a distinguished high school career before playing at Wichita State. She was a three-time all-class performer in volleyball and basketball at Hoxie High. As a senior, she averaged 28.4 points. The Wildcats are coming off a 19-14 season in which they qualified for the WNIT. Reac

  • SMU guard Moore to join Kansas for World University Games

    Updated: Thu, May 21, 2015

    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — SMU guard Nic Moore will join the Kansas basketball program to represent the U.S. as the World University Games in South Korea later this summer. The Jayhawks are unable to include Svi Mykhailiuk on their roster because he is from Ukraine, and fellow guard Brannen Greene recently had hip surgery. So with a depleted backcourt, coach Bill Self reached out to his former mentor Larry Brown for help. Brown, now the coach at SMU, said Moore would love to play. The reigning American Athletic Conference player of the year averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists last year. Part of the reason Moore makes sense is SMU runs a system similar to Kansas, making it easier to incorporate him into the roster.

  • Sam Mellinger: Around Kansas, a strong distaste about resuming Border War with Missouri

    Updated: Thu, May 21, 2015

    This time, the questions are natural. They are needed. They are coming in the wake of Missouri hiring a new athletic director. His name is Mack Rhoades, and he is friendly with Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger, which is a big change from the last Missouri athletic director. That was Mike Alden, and even he knows his name is something like a curse word around Lawrence, Kan. When Alden retired recently, he mentioned more than a few times that he hoped the Border War rivalry could be renewed, a nod to the understanding from all sides that the way he led Mizzou’s departure from the Big 12 left many at KU feeling misled, or worse.
