Dwight Coleby thrilled to step into tournament spotlight


Tulsa, Okla. — A happy Dwight Coleby said following his key contributions in the Kansas Jayhawks’ 90-70 victory over Michigan State he was fully prepared to make an impact off the bench.

“It’s the brightest stage and I want to play,” Coleby said, when asked how he stays mentally focused while never being sure what will be asked of him, “so I’m just ready the whole time.”

Coleby’s efforts helped land KU in the Sweet 16.

“I just watch Landen, and everything he does and how he defends,” Coleby shared. “Whatever he does, I just try to pick up on it and ask him questions.”

I was very happy for Dwight during the game. Bragg was unfortunately unable to help inside and Dwight (with his big body) stepped up and played well. We'll need him again against a big Purdue team on Thursday!

Plus Carlton's playing out of position and that doesn't help against big bodies
