Kansas coach Self says Azubuike to start Friday

Kansas sophomore center Udoka Azubuike played 22 minutes in the Jayhawks’ second-round NCAA Tournament Midwest Regional victory over Seton Hall on Saturday after toiling 3 minutes in Thursday’s first-round clash versus Penn.

So how many minutes will the 7-footer, who sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee March 6, work Friday in a Sweet 16 contest against Clemson that tips off at 6:07 p.m. at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb.?

“I think it’s strictly conditioning,” KU coach Bill Self said Tuesday afternoon on Jim Rome’s national radio show, meaning the better condition Azubuike’s in, the more he’ll play.
