Kansas forward Dedric Lawson (1) shoots over Michigan State forward Nick Ward (44) during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game at the Champions Classic on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, in Indianapolis. Kansas won, 92-87.
For the second offseason in a row, after singing the praises of former KU transfer Malik Newman a year earlier, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self spent a fair amount of time talking up Memphis transfer Dedric Lawson in the months leading up to the 2018-19 season. So far, Lawson sure is making his head coach look like a genius for it. By Matt Tait
