LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The first thing you notice about the Kansas basketball team this year is that it's big.
Not in height, though 7-footer Jeff Withey stands out, but in numbers.
There are a lot of players on the roster this season, 17 to be exact, and for the most part they land on the extremes of experience. The main contributors will be either seniors who were part of a national title run last season or wide-eyed freshmen who watched the Final Four from afar.
The Jayhawks get on the court for the annual ``Late Night in the Phog'' on Friday night. Their first exhibition game is Oct. 30 against Emporia State before opening the regular season Nov. 9 against Southeast Missouri State.
