After Auburn ended the Kansas basketball team’s season in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, sophomore K.J. Lawson explained how issues on the defensive end of the floor made a rally difficult.
“You can’t trade baskets when you’re down,” Lawson said. “And we just didn’t put together enough stops in the beginning.”
The Tigers led by as many as 27 points while eliminating KU.
In an emotional Kansas locker room Saturday night in Salt Lake City, Devon Dotson tried to put into words the various emotions that accompanied a season-ending loss for Kansas.
“It hurts,” Dotson said, wearing a towel on top of his head while surrounded by reporters and cameras. “It hurts.”
The Kansas basketball team’s freshman point guard finished with 13 points and 3 assists in an 89-75 loss in the NCAA Tournament’s second round.
Following a season-ending defeat against Auburn, Dedric Lawson explains what went wrong for the Jayhawks.
“It was their shooting ability,” Lawson said of one of many keys to the Tigers’ success. “They made every shot in the first half. Made eight 3’s.”
Lawson finished the loss with 25 points and 10 rebounds
“That 25 don’t even matter,” he said. “We just lost by like 20. It doesn’t even matter.”
