08:15 AM ET 02.18 | Before the Harlem Shake, were the Jayhawks merely too serious? The Kansas basketball team filmed a version last week, complete with Jeff Withey rocking out in an afro, Travis Releford swinging gold chains and Ben McLemore wearing a chicken head. ... [Said Elijah Johnson:] "At first I wasn't big on doing it. I think everybody kind of felt the same way. But when Justin forced us to do it, it turned into us having so much energy yesterday, and then we went into practice and it kind of carried over." No one is crediting the Harlem Shake for Saturday's 73-47 victory against Texas, but it did represent an attitude shift for the Jayhawks. ... The Jayhawks say they are a looser team now, just in time for what might be the biggest game of their regular season.
