One-on-One Interview: Kansas’ Jeff Withey

03/29/2013

Jeff Withey, Brice JohnsonARLINGTON, TX – As the sport of basketball continues to morph into a perimeter-oriented game, the presence of dominant centers is becoming increasingly scarce. But Kansas’ Jeff Withey is a seven-foot reminder that the center position is not extinct just yet.

The senior from San Diego averages 13.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, but makes perhaps his biggest impact as an imposing presence in the paint. Withey averages just under four blocked shots per game, and often single-handedly disrupts the rhythm of many opponents’ half-court offenses.

Withey will lead the top-seeded Jayhawks into their South Regional semifinal against 4th-seeded Michigan in Arlington on Friday night, as Kansas looks to continue their path towards a second consecutive National Championship game, where they fell to Kentucky last season.

Fran Fraschilla caught up with Withey ahead of the game.
