Kansas guard Lagerald Vick (2) puts up a three over Texas guard Matt Coleman (2) during the first half on Friday, Dec. 29, 2017 at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
Lagerald Vick's lob finishes represent the loudest of so many ways that he demonstrates his high ceiling as a basketball player. So much of the rest of what he does flies under the radar, in part because of how efficiently he moves and shoots and how quickly he makes decisions.
As Kansas opened Big 12 play Friday night at Frank Erwin Center, it didn’t take long for Texas freshman Mohamed Bamba to establish himself as a force inside defensively, what with his 7-foot-9 wingspan and active hands and feet. So the No. 11 Jayhawks used one of their greatest strengths, their 3-point shooting, to avoid the dangerous Bamba and win, 92-86, in Austin, Texas. By Benton Smith
