After a flawless effort from deep on Monday, Kansas senior wing Lagerald Vick put together an impressive encore.
With 9:18 to play in the first half and his team trailing Louisiana by 10, Kansas coach Bill Self walked onto the floor during a timeout and quickly was whistled for a technical foul.
After watching the entirety of the previous game from the bench, Kansas big man David McCormack didn’t know for certain if Friday night’s matchup with Louisiana at Allen Fieldhouse would play out any differently for him.
It was not quite the same red-hot, lightning-fast start that he had on Monday night against Vermont, but Lagerald Vick sure ended up in the same place. Good thing, too. On a night when 22-point favorite Kansas trailed visiting Louisiana by a dozen in the first half, the Jayhawks needed everything Vick could give them to hold off a scrappy Ragin’ Cajuns team, 89-76, at Allen Fieldhouse.
