Night

Hello, Newman: Kansas sophomore's breakout performance fuels win over ISU

The signature moment in Malik Newman’s Kansas coming out party on Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse — Italy be damned — featured one big time play on both ends of the floor from a player the KU basketball team desperately needed to get going. With 2:34 to play in a two-point game that felt even tighter than that, Newman stayed down in his stance, watched Iowa State’s Donovan Jackson try to dribble into a go-ahead 3-pointer and then elevated to block the shot. No 3-point winner for Jackson this year. By Matt Tait

A breakout performance by KU sophomore Malik Newman and another impressive 3-point shooting display by senior Svi Mykhailiuk allowed KU to hold off its pesky visitors from Iowa State, 83-78.
