Wow, this one still hurts.

KU nation should be proud of our team, Kansas had a real good run in the NCAA Tournament. We came from behind each round. I thought we might have one last comeback in us, but it wasn’t enough in the end.

I have to give it up to Kentucky and Coach Cal though – they had the most wins ever in a season by a national champion. They took the record away from my Jayhawks, and they deserved it. If you want to see how you stacked up against me when it was all said and done, take a look at my bracket @TheLockerRoom.

With March Madness over, it’s time for everyone to get revved up again about the NBA season. I feel like our team is coming together at the perfect time, even though we have had a couple tough losses. I feel good about how we have been playing, but we’re always working to improve.
With the postseason looming, I am giving you all another great opportunity to win a chance to see us take on the Magic on April 18 at the Garden. I’m raffling off my personal suite for the last time this season, so it’s go big or go home.

We are giving away 18 tickets to be split between three winners. Each winner will receive four regular seats and two standing room only tickets to my luxury suite. Not only will you get a great view of the game, but we will also be providing food and beverage in the suite, and an autographed ball signed by me for each of the three winners. All proceeds will go toward empowering and encouraging young people to lead healthier lifestyles through my Truth on Health Campaign, so do your part and buy those tickets today!

Raffle tickets are just $2 with a minimum purchase of five tickets and can be purchased now at or The winners will be selected on April 16 at 11AM EDT. You can visit for more information. Good luck!
