Tom Keegan: Jayhawks far more effective with Azubuike on the floor

Two different Kansas basketball teams took the floor at WVU Coliseum for a Big Monday thriller won by Kansas, 71-66, on a furious late comeback from a 16-point deficit.

Game blog: No. 10 Kansas at No. 6 West Virginia

What better way to open ESPN’s 2018 Big Monday schedule than with a battle of top-10 Big 12 teams? Kansas hasn’t won at West Virginia in any of its past four trips out to Morgantown. The No. 6 Mountaineers (15-2 overall, 4-1 Big 12), coming off a loss at Texas Tech, hope to send the No. 10 Jayhawks (14-3, 4-1) back to Lawrence with a fifth straight loss at WVU.
