LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) The timing could hardly have been better for Kansas coach Bill Self.

Every four years, the NCAA allows schools to embark on a foreign exhibition tour, and along with the games comes an opportunity to practice 10 times in preparation for it. Those additional practices usually give schools a jump on preparing for the regular season a couple of months later.

After losing AP Player of the Year Frank Mason III and Landen Lucas to graduation, first-round pick Josh Jackson to the NBA and backup forward Carlton Bragg Jr. to transfer, the Jayhawks will look a whole lot different from their Big 12 championship team when they depart for Italy on Monday.

iTunes hides clues that Apple is preparing to go 4K

  iTunes hides clues that Apple is preparing to go 4K It's inevitable for a massive digital store like iTunes to start selling 4K movies and videos, and that time might come sooner than you think. MacRumors forum member Tomas Jackson from the UK reported noticing something unusual in a receipt of his movie purchases. It described his copy of Passengers, the JLaw-Chris Pratt space romance, as "4K HDR." Meanwhile, an American forum member who purchased the same movie noted that his copy only said "HD.

''I'll be in a good mood the entire time, so I can't imagine the players not having a good time and enjoying themselves,'' Self said.

''Even though we are going there to play ball, it's also kind of a reward trip. So hopefully we'll go over there and get a little bit better basketball-wise, but most of getting better basketball-wise is going to take place here, in Lawrence.''

By that, Self means those practices that allow him to piece together his team.

Sure, the Jayhawks lost a quartet of important pieces from a team that went 31-5, earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and eventually lost to Oregon in the Elite Eight. But that also means there will be six newcomers this season - and eight if you count a pair of transfers who sat out last season.

  Report: Kansas suspends Dedric Lawson over altercation in practice Bill Self is laying down the law. The Kansas head coach announced Sunday that small forward Dedric Lawson has been suspended and won't travel with the club to Italy due to his role in a recent scuffle in practice, Mike Galloway of the Topeka Capital-Journal reports.

There's a trio of freshmen headlined by four-star point guard Marcus Garrett and potential one-and-done forward Billy Preston. There is graduate transfer Jack Whitman, a forward from William & Mary who is eligible immediately. And there is former Mississippi State point guard Malik Newman and ex-Arizona State shooting guard Sam Cunliff, who should help the Jayhawks absorb the loss of Mason and Jackson.

Three more transfers - brothers Dedric and K.J. Lawson from Memphis and Charlie Moore from Cal - will have to sit out this season, but will also participate in the trip abroad.

In other words, there's a whole lot of new faces on the practice court at Allen Fieldhouse and a whole lot of chances for bonding.

''It's fun ... it's something new,'' Newman said. ''There are more things that they are going through than just having the people around who you are used to. They have to learn us, we have to learn them. We have to try to `mold as one.'''

The Jayhawks didn't have the same kind of turnover last year, when they returned the bulk of their roster. The only significant addition was Jackson, whose elite ability allowed him to fit in easily.

That's not to say there isn't still plenty of veteran presence.

Devonte Graham is poised to take the reins after a breakout junior season, while fellow senior Svi Mykhailiuk decided to remain in school after considering the draft.

Junior guard Lagerald Vick and sophomore forward Mitch Lightfoot played plenty of minutes last season, and bruising 7-foot, 280-pound center Udoka Azubuike will be healthy after missing much of last season to injury.

''It's a good time to get everybody together and maybe put in some `meat and potatoes' stuff,'' Self said, ''But it's not going to be an intense deal like it would be during the regular season or a normal practice. I've learned that Devonte is still good, that Dok is still big, Lagerald is still athletic, but I don't really know much about the team.''

Plenty of other programs are embarking on foreign trips, too.

UConn women ready to move on from Final Four loss

  UConn women ready to move on from Final Four loss Geno Auriemma and his UConn Huskies haven't watched last season's Final Four loss to Mississippi State. They are focusing on the future more than dwelling on the past. "I haven't watched the game, but I'm sure I will at some point," Auriemma said.
