LAWRENCE, Kan. -- The setting, Madison Square Garden, seemed appropriate enough for Bill Self to propose his Kansas point guard attract more attention from NBA scouts.Senior Frank Mason just sank a winning pull-up jumper in the final seconds to defeat top-rated Duke in the Champions Classic, a victory that evened the No. 7 Jayhawks at 1-1 after opening with an overtime loss to Indiana in the Armed Forces Classic.Mason was brilliant in both games. Enough that Self knew to put the ball in Masons hands and let him take the shot that kept the Blue Devils matchup from also going into overtime.I think the NBAs missing the boat on him, Self said. He doesnt fit the eye test with length and standing (5-foot-11) and that kind of stuff, but hes got some things you cant teach and intangibles that are as good as anybody in America probably possesses.After netting a career-high 30 points in the Indiana defeat, Mason led Kansas with 21 points and five assists against Duke. The third-year starter has already gained the distinction as the Jayhawks go-to man entering their home opener Friday against Siena (1-1).By at least gaining a split of a season-opening salvo in which Kansas flew over the Pacific and also played near the Atlantic to confront two bluebloods of their ilk , the Jayhawks realized their potential as Big 12 favorites expected to vie for a Final Four berth.It will do something for us, because, for the first time, we won a game when we shot it like (garbage), Self said. He also noted that Duke did not get transition points and we controlled the glass. Its not that complicated.Certainly not if Mason continues a furious pace that finds him averaging 25.5 points, 7.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds over 37.5 minutes. This, despite sitting out some of the first half against Duke because of foul trouble.Freshmen also flashed more of their skills in the Duke win. Josh Jackson, a 6-8 guard rated by some services as the top recruit in this years class, added 15 points. Udoka Azubuike, a 7-foot, 280-pound man-child from Nigeria, grabbed 12 rebounds.Were not a great rebounding team by any stretch, Self said, and he gets 12 in 15 minutes and our other bigs get seven in 30. As he gets more comfortable, I certainly see his minutes going up. Hes going to be as important as anybody on our team in how good we can be.The Jayhawks have won 42 straight home openers. The game against Siena is officially part of the CBE Classic, which will find Kansas moving on to Kansas City, Mo., for a Nov. 21 game against UAB. Also that night, George Washington faces Georgia. The four-team bracket concludes Nov. 22.Siena was edged 77-75 by George Washington, the reigning NIT champion, on Nov. 15.The Saints had a chance to win at the buzzer, but sophomore guard Nico Clareth missed a 3-pointer. The loss began a stretch of four road games in eight days.Its a lot of travel and a lot of games, said Siena senior forward Brett Bisping, who averages a double-double (14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds). But its early in the season, so were not really worn down yet. I think well be ready to go.The Saints were picked second in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (behind Monmouth) after returning their five top scorers off last years 21-13 squad.Marquis Wright, a 6-1 senior guard, leads Siena with a 26-point average after matching his career-best with 31 points against Cornell in the season opener.I hope some of the younger guys see what Marquis does, Siena coach Jimmy Patsos said. Hes fiery. He keeps taking the big shot. But he plays defense, then he hustles, he comes over and he listens to me. Hes a complete player. Charone Peake Jersey .

LONDON -- Even if this was Venus Williams best Wimbledon in quite a while, it did not end the way she had hoped.A five-time champion at the All England Club, Williams made it to the semifinals for the first time since 2009, losing at that stage Thursday to No. 4 Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-4.I did a lot of what I wanted to do. Definitely wanted to do more today, try to arrive to Saturday, said Williams, referring to the day of the womens singles final. But a lot of positives. Of course, Id like to continue to play this way.Since revealing in 2011 that she had been diagnosed with Sjongrens syndrome, which can cause joint pain and fatigue, Williams had a half-dozen losses in the first round at major tournaments -- and zero appearances in the semifinals.At 36, she was the oldest woman in the field at Wimbledon.But for the past 1 1/2 weeks, Williams looked once again like a player who opponents need to be worried about.And she wound up as the oldest woman in the final four at a major since 1994.Entering the semifinal, Williams had a chance to set up a final against her younger sister Serena, who beat Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-0 earlier in the day. It would have been their ninth meeting in a Grand Slam title match, and fifth at Wimbledon, but first in seven years.I just think it was a missed opportunityy here, said Venus coach, David Witt.dddddddddddd She couldve easily been in the finals, and then in the finals, all it takes is one good match of unbelievable tennis and you just dont know what happens.Against Kerber, though, Venus showed signs of being wiped out.Her serve didnt have its usual sting, and she was broken five times.Im sure shes not happy with her performance, Witt said, adding: I really dont think Venus ever really settled down in the match and felt comfortable.After the singles semifinals, the Williams siblings headed back out on court for their doubles quarterfinal, beating Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-2.Venus and Serena have won 13 Grand Slam titles as a pair, including five at Wimbledon, most recently in 2012.So this stay at the All England Club -- her 19th appearance -- is not quite over for Venus.After the long day, with one loss and one victory, Venus was asked whether she will return for a 20th Wimbledon.I would love to. Its all in the plans, she responded.
