Top-seeded Kansas hopes to get injured center Udoka Azubuike back Thursday for its first-round game against Penn. Ninth-seeded Kansas State likewise hopes to have All-Big 12 forward Dean Wade and high-scoring guard Barry Brown back from injuries that sidelined them during the Big 12 Tournament when they face Creighton on Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina.
