Coming up big: Udoka Azubuike helps Jayhawks rally past WVU

After Kansas sophomore Udoka Azubuike dropped 21 points in 31 minutes to help lead the Jayhawks to a wild, 77-69, comeback victory over West Virginia on Saturday evening at Allen Fieldhouse, one of the most popular questions tossed KU's way was whether the game was the best of Azubuike's still-young career. As is so often the case, KU coach Bill Self delivered the best answer, tying in Saturday's celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 national title team to emphasize his point. By Matt Tait

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.
