# LAJ’s Krista Pirtle writes about how the current team is ready to raise their expectations after appearing in the NCAA Tournament last year.

“I have a lot of respect for Tubby Smith and his staff and the job they did,” Beard said. “We inherited a great foundation. In this year’s team, we have 12 players that are going to be on the active roster. … So I think our job is to try to take the program to the next level.”

# RRS’s Will McKay has a Q&A with DePaul transfer Tommy Hamilton, who will sit out this year as a transfer, lots there, but here’s what Hamilton wants to work on in his year off:

“I want to get myself in the best shape of my life. I want to come back noticeably different, you know what I’m saying? I think that’s the first thing. The biggest thing is first getting in shape and then just getting used to a new system and all that kind of stuff, just trying to be consistent each and every day.”


# LAJ’s Don Williams writes about how Patrick Mahomes continues to throw the ‘ol football around and Kingsbury talked about how he played in the Oklahoma game:

“I think because of the situation with his shoulder being banged up and how much he’s had to push through, and just participating in 100 plays, it’s incredible that he just kept getting up and kept going and kept converting third downs,” Kingsbury said. “We were 20 of 25, and he probably converted 18 of them on his own.
