Bill Self told his Kansas basketball team a week ago following a loss to Texas Tech it wouldn’t be the last time the Jayhawks left Allen Fieldhouse sad this season. That type of post-game displeasure didn’t repeat itself Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse, though. 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.
