Frankamp out

Kansas freshman guard Conner Frankamp missed Wednesday’s game after suffering a knee injury earlier this week in practice, a Kansas official said before the game. Frankamp, who is averaging 6.3 minutes, was in street clothes on the Kansas bench.

McDonald’s All-Americans

The rosters for the McDonald’s All-American Game are officially out, and Kansas recruits will be included for the third straight year. KU signees Cliff Alexander and Kelly Oubre were selected to the game on Wednesday night.

Alexander, a 6-foot-8 power forward at Curie High in Chicago, and Oubre, a 6-foot-7 small forward from Findlay Prep in Las Vegas, will take part in the annual high school showcase April 2 in Chicago.

Kansas is still recruiting Myles Turner, a 6-foot-11 center from Euless, Texas, who was also selected to the McDonald’s roster. Kentucky and Duke led the way with four McDonald’s All-Americans each, while North Carolina had three.

Worth noting

Royals first baseman Billy Butler and right-handed pitcher Jeremy Guthrie were both in attendance Wednesday, sitting behind the KU bench. Also sitting behind the KU bench: Grammy nominated rapper Trey Songz, who was announced as a Jayhawk fan during the second half.
