Night

Zone-busted: Washington's strategy flummoxes No. 2 Kansas

For the second game in a row, Lagerald Vick in the high post proved to be a massive story line for the Kansas men's basketball team. But this time, instead of the junior guard giving KU's opponent fits, it almost looked as if Washington wanted Vick to be there. That was the recipe all night for the upset-minded Huskies, who led No. 2 Kansas for 28:53 and ran away at the end, 74-65, at Sprint Center. By Matt Tait
