08:20 AM ET 11.09 | Seven-footer Jeff Withey's head is closer to the clouds than most, something to which he admitted on the eve of the college basketball season. "I was kind of in a funk the last month and a half. Probably just in practice I haven't been doing that well," said Withey, Kansas University's senior basketball center, who believes his 9-point, 7-rebound, 6-block second half against Washburn on Monday has snapped him back to reality. "That second half I kind of got it going. That's how I need to play every half. I felt I was kind of back to myself." ... Withey, who was named first-team preseason All-Big 12 and honorable mention All-America, said he doesn't know why he's been spaced out. "Starting practice up again, early jitters maybe," he said.
