Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, Kansas
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Ben McLemore had just hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key, and then rose to the rafters of Allen Fieldhouse to throw down an alley-oop dunk and bring a raucous crowd to its feet.When he hit the floor moments later, the old barn was filled with deafening silence.McLemore had poured in 17 points in the fourth-ranked Jayhawks' 61-44 win over Baylor, but he was now clutching his right ankle in pain. The star freshman grimaced as a trainer probed and prodded it, and then he was helped to his feet and straight to the Kansas locker room.Kansas coach Bill Self said afterward that McLemore had a Grade-1 sprain, "and if we were going to practice tomorrow, I wouldn't let him practice." But Self also was hopeful that McLemore won't miss more than a few days, which means he could be back before Saturday's game at Texas.
