LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Ben McLemore and Jamari Traylor have been waiting for this moment for more than a year.
The talented freshmen were deemed partial qualifiers by the NCAA last season, so they were forced to watch as Kansas made another remarkable run to the Final Four. They weren't allowed to practice with the Jayhawks until the second semester and couldn't play in games.
Now, they are finally getting their chance.
The seventh-ranked Jayhawks open the regular season Friday night against Southeast Missouri, the only tuneup they have before a high-profile game against Michigan State next week.
Already, coach Bill Self has said McLemore and Traylor will be vital to any success Kansas has this season.
