LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas lost one of the leading scorers and rebounders in school history, a slashing guard capable of scoring in bunches, a one-and-done prospect with freakish talent and a dazzling 3-point shooter.And theres a good chance theyll be even better this season.Hard to believe after the Jayhawks went 33-5, won their 12th straight Big 12 regular-season title and earned the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. But with the return of three starters and the addition of Josh Jackson, the nations top overall recruit, the Jayhawks believe they have the chops to win their first national title since 2008.Were going to miss two key starters and of course some depth behind that, but I do think the pieces have potential to fit, Kansas coach Bill Self said. If the pieces fit as well, then I think you may have a little bit more talented group that may give you a chance maybe to play better when it counts the most. But certainly it remains to be seen if the pieces can get there yet.Self acknowledged losing Perry Ellis to graduation creates a significant void, not only in scoring and rebounding but also leadership, and that Wayne Selden Jr. was often the best player on the floor. When you throw in Cheick Diallo, who left after one underwhelming season for the NBA, and Brannen Greenes decision to leave a year early, you have roster turnover that could cripple most programs.The Jayhawks merely had to plug the holes and press on.Jackson should move right into the starting lineup, a 6-foot-8 swingman who some believe could have more impact on the Jayhawks than Andrew Wiggins. Udoka Azubuike also arrived on campus with the kind of expectations that match the freshman centers 7-foot, 270-pound frame.The Jayhawks will also add Ole Miss transfer Dwight Coleby to the mix. He tore his ACL last year but was already sitting out under NCAA transfer rules, and could provide some depth in the front court.But the key to the Jayhawks success will be the returnees: Frank Mason III and Devonte Graham will combine with Jackson in arguably the nations best backcourt, Carlton Bragg is poised to become a scoring machine after an uneven freshman season and Landen Lucas provides experience in the post.Everyone just has to give themselves up and do exactly what coach wants, Mason said. Hes been there and he knows what it takes. Doing that, we have a chance to be the best we can be.Here are the story lines that could define the Jayhawks season:JACKSONS HYPESeveral analysts have already listed him No. 1 in next years draft, but so far he has said all the right things. And he wants to win, even floating the idea of going 40-0. We know its going to be really hard and kind of unlikely, he said, but thats what were shooting for.PLAYING SMALLSelf loves his big men, but the majority of his talent is in the backcourt, so expect the Jayhawks to play four guards quite often. Mason, Graham and Jackson could be joined by Svi Mykhailiuk and Lagerald Vick, who played sparingly a year ago but has taken big strides in the offseason.BIG 12 DROPOFFWest Virginia lost Devin Williams, Iowa State lost Georges Niang and Oklahoma lost Buddy Hield and, well, just about everybody. So the Jayhawks are the heavy favorites to win the league for the 13th straight time, which would match the record streak of UCLA for a major conference.SITTING OUTMississippi State transfer Malik Newman will have to sit out under NCAA transfer rules, but he should still prove valuable. Newman was one of the nations top recruits out of high school and should help to make practices a bit more spirited.TOUGH ROADThe Jayhawks open with Indiana in Hawaii and play Duke four days later in New York, an unusual and brutal combination of travel and talented opponents. Stanford, UNLV and Nebraska ae also on the non-conference schedule. Thats why you come to a school like this -- to start off with Indiana and Duke, Lucas said. Were going to learn a lot in those first couple of weeks. <a href="http://www.yeezypowerphase-nl.com/yeezy-desert-rat-500.html">Yeezy Desert Rat 500</a>.

Worcestershire 475 for 7 dec (Clarke 194, Leach 107*, Mitchell 67) and 40 for 1 beat Derbyshire 248 (Hosein 108, Leach 5-60) and 266 (Madsen 100, Hosein 59) by nine wicketsScorecard For the first time in 92 years Derbyshire finished a County Championship season without a single victory after losing to Worcestershire by nine wickets in their final Specsavers Division Two fixture at New Road.Having started the last day at 15 for 1, still 212 behind, they held off the home side for five hours until they were dug out for 266. Worcestershire had to make 40 and lost Brett DOliveira before securing third place behind Essex and Kent.At least the divisions bottom county went down on a note of defiance thanks to Wayne Madsens sixth championship century of the season and Harvey Hoseins achievement in becoming only the fourth Derbyshire wicketkeeper to make a hundred and a fifty in a match.The last Derbyshire player to score six hundreds was Chris Rogers in 2009, and there was another milestone for Madsen in closing the campaign with a personal-best total of 1,292 runs, the fourth year in a row that he has topped 1,000.There was also a distinction on the bowling side as Joe Leach took 7 for 108 in the match and ended his summer with 65 wickets, the most in Division Two.Leach had given Worcestershire encouragement in his second over of the day. Alex Hughes went forward and drove hard but edged to Tom Kohler-Cadmore.More trouble for Derbyshire followed when Billy Godleman hoisted a ball from Miguel Cummins straight to Ed Barnarrd at fine leg, a shot that was perhaps not in keeping with a side battling to avoid defeat.ddddddddddddAt 29 for 3, Derbyshire were still 198 behind but Madsen gave them some hope with Tom Woods help until his younger partner was caught behind the wicket off Barnard after making 10 out of 45 in 10 overs.It was the appearance of Hosein that injected new conviction. In making his fifth consecutive score of 50 or more, the 20-year-old judged his role to perfection, allowing Madsen to take the main role but scoring consistently himself as they put on 124 in 26 overs.Another New Road pitch conformed to the pattern of the season in becoming flatter the longer the game went on. Even Madsens dismissal, leg-before to Charlie Morris for exactly 100 after hitting 15 fours and a six, did not immediately open the door to Worcestershire.Hosein maintained his unflappable tempo and Tom Milnes brought a bolder approach until Daryl Mitchell intervened with two wickets in eight ballsThe seventh bowler in the attack, the home captain bowled Milnes for 36 and Greg Cork for 4. Suddenly Worcestershires challenge was reignited and in the next over, DOliveira accounted for Hosein, caught at short leg for 59, and Will Davis, lbw without scoring, in successive deliveries.Cummins then took the new ball and when Tony Palladino was given out leg-before, the last five wickets had fallen for the addition of 11 runs. <a href="http://www.chinawholesalejerseysnfl.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a> ' ' '
