In a battle of current and former Kansas basketball players, the young legs of the 2017-18 Jayhawks prevailed in a first-to-80 scrimmage in front of Bill Self campers Wednesday afternoon.
Watch some of the baskets from KU’s Udoka Azubuike, Devonte’ Graham, Mitch Lightfoot, Malik Newman, Sam Cunliffe and Lagerald Vick, who helped Self’s current roster prevail, 82-75.
Tulsa, Okla. — After Kansas moved on to the Sweet 16 by beating Michigan State, 90-70, at BOK Center Sunday night, junior Devonte’ Graham said the Jayhawks were difficult to stop because he, Frank Mason III and Josh Jackson were all producing.
“It’s hard to focus in on all of us at one time, because we all can do so much, and make plays off the dribble, we can shoot it, Josh can play inside-out,” Graham said. “And then Landen (Lucas) down low and then you get Dwight (Coleby) coming off playing like that, so it’s definitely hard to guard.”
Graham also said the Jayhawks (30-4) hope to use their recent loss in Kansas City, Mo., at Sprint Center this week as a reminder and motivator before they face Purdue on Thursday night.
