Night

Reinvigorated: Jayhawks back to old starting 5 in win at Iowa State

On Monday afternoon, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self said he knew what his struggling Jayhawks needed to be successful again. On Tuesday night, his team proved him right. With Lagerald Vick and Malik Newman both back in the starting lineup, the KU starters played the lion's share of the minutes in Hilton Coliseum (162 of 200), scoring all but eight points to lead Kansas to a tough, 83-77 road victory over Iowa State.

Afternoon

Self understands 'heavens are falling' but remains focused on KU getting better

Kansas basketball coach Bill Self is smart enough to sense what's happening with KU's beloved fan base, even though he has spent very little time interacting with them of late and spends basically no time on social media sites and message boards where thousands of Jayhawk fans are happy to let their feelings be known.

Tom Keegan: Bill Self's second-half gamble with Udoka Azubuike pays off

Iowa State’s Solomon Young went up for a short baseline jumper, and Kansas center Udoka Azubuike went up with him and made contact. The whistle blew, and 21 seconds into the second half, Azubuike picked up his third foul. He stole a glance toward the bench, figuring he would see Mitch Lightfoot being summoned to replace him. Lightfoot remained seated. “I thought (Kansas coach Bill Self) was going to take me out, to be honest with you, but he kept me in the game,” Azubuike said afterward. By Tom Keegan

Notebook: Lagerald Vick takes advantage of ISU's matchup problem in road victory

The first time Iowa State faced Kansas this season, they put 6-foot-9 freshman power forward Cameron Lard on 6-foot-3 shooting guard Malik Newman and dared the Kansas sophomore to beat them. Newman did, scoring 27 points on that early January afternoon to lead Kansas to a five-point victory. Tuesday night at Hilton Coliseum, the stage was set for a similar matchup, and this time Iowa State coach Steve Prohm elected to put Lard on KU's slumping junior Lagerald Vick instead of Newman.
