Following an 85-53 Kansas University basketball win over Washburn, coach Bill Self describes the things he liked and didn't like so much about the way the Jayhawks played. Self admitted KU showed some signs that it could be very good on defense eventually.
Kansas University players Frank Mason, Devonté Graham and Cliff Alexander meet the media to discuss the Jayhawks' exhibition opener, an 85-53 victory over Washburn.
Kansas University sophomore Landen Lucas scored nine points off 4-of-4 shooting and grabbed six rebounds in 13 minutes Monday against Washburn.
“I didn’t know if Landen would play today,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He was feeling fine. Yesterday he didn’t finish practice because it (left leg) was so sore. Today he was fine in shootaround and fine tonight.”
Lucas, who recently missed a couple weeks of practice because of a stress fracture in his lower left leg, said he indeed was feeling fine.
“The time off definitely helped. There’s still some soreness in my knees and leg. I went out there, got through it. Going forward I think it’ll definitely progress for the better,” Lucas said.
“It was a stress fracture in my fibula. That has gone away with the time off. It’s getting my body back adjusted to the pounding every day in practice.”
Of KU’s big men, Lucas said: “I think we all did well. It’s a process. We looked good out there tonight. We’re definitely going to play inside/out this year.”
