Kansas’ big men bring much to the table

Kansas basketball’s big men sat near each other while fielding questions from media members in a cramped locker room last week at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita.

Udoka Azubuike, Mitch Lightfoot, Silvio De Sousa, James Sosinski and Clay Young eavesdropped on conversations, and even interjected comments during mandatory interview sessions, giving the impression of one, big happy family.

“I think it’s because they want each other to do well,” KU big-man coach Norm Roberts said Monday, when asked how the bigs could seemingly get along so well off the court, easily forgetting all the hard fouls and physical inside play at practices and pickup games that start in the summer and stretch all the way through a marathon season.
