Jayhawk Fan, Kansas City: Do you regret not going to a smaller school where you would get more playing time and not have to red shirt like your former high school friend Willie Reed?
Travis: No, not at all. Because red-shirting has made me a better player and also a better person. And it’s made me hungrier for the game.
Tracy (Wichita, KS): What is your favorite thing to do aside from playing basketball?
Travis: Just hanging out with my friends. Playing video games.
DeAndre (Miami): How much time do you guys spend lifting during the off-season and how important is it for you personally?
Travis: It depends. But usually 30 minutes to an hour every day. We probably get one or two days off a week. It’s important to stay strong and be able to keep up with everybody on the court.
Jayson (Minneapolis, MN): If you had to choose one word to describe your game, what would it be? What about one word to describe your personality?
Travis: My game–explosive. And my personality–comedian.
Daniel (Raymore): Are you planning on staying with KU? And what are your summer plans?
Travis: No, I am not going anywhere. I’m staying here. Over the summer I just plan on working out and getting ready for next season.
Kye (Wichita): Also wondering if you see yourself playing the 2 or 3 more next year, and if Coach Self has given you any indication where you might see more minutes?
Travis: I see myself playing both 2 and 3. It just depends on how Coach Self sees his lineup next year.
Mike H. (Leawood, KS): What video game do you spend the most time playing?
Travis: Call of Duty
Jenny (MO): You are from this area. What do you think the best place to get BBQ is in KC?
Travis: Gates.
