Q3: What were the 7th Floor Crew nicknames for former Hurricanes Greg Olsen, Jon Beason and Brandon Merriweather?

LAWRENCE — Kansas women’s coach Brandon Schneider made an “L” with his fingers to signal the play, though it seemed he was the only one who knew it.He yelled at center Caelynn Manning-Allen to get to the other side of the court, then a few seconds later, screamed at guard Aisia Robertson to get out of Lauren Aldridge’s way.Once a third player went the wrong direction, Schneider threw his hands up incredulously.
