LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Udoka Azubike came off the bench for Kansas for the first time this season. Coach Bill Self didn’t explain exactly why.
Nonetheless, Azubike finished with 17 points to lead the third-ranked Jayhawks to their seventh straight victory, 69-58 over Texas on Monday night.
“We didn’t have a great day yesterday,” Self said of the decision not to start Azubuike. “We’re going to keep that in the house, but his attitude was good and I was actually very proud of him. I thought he came out and showed some maturity and responded in the way you’re supposed to.”
