Kansas forward Landen Lucas (33) gets up to defend against a shot from West Virginia guard Tarik Phillip (12) during the first half, Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse.
Baylor standout forward Taurean Prince took the question head on and spit out the truth in concise fashion.
The Kansas basketball team went 2-0 in its most challenging week of the season so far, and the Associated Press moved the Jayhawks from No. 6 to No. 2 in the latest AP Top 25.
Back on Jan. 4, the No. 1 team in the Associated Press basketball poll (Kansas University) outlasted the No. 1 team in USA Today’s coaches poll (Oklahoma), 109-106, in three overtimes in Allen Fieldhouse.
Known mostly as a role player filling a defensive niche at KU’s 5 spot, Landen Lucas made his presence felt on that end of the floor, finishing with 16 rebounds and 4 blocks in 29 minutes, but also contributed on offense more than he normally does, adding 9 points on 4-of-5 shooting and No. 6 Kansas knocked off No. 10 WVU, 75-65.
