No. 2 Kansas handed first defeat of season by Washington

No. 2 Kansas handed first defeat of season by Washington”

First-year Washington coach Mike Hopkins saw how Kansas dissected Syracuses vaunted 2-3 zone defense last week, so he made a couple tweaks to his own version before facing the Jayhawks on Wednesday night.

"Watch Syracuse ... they play a lot like Syracuse". After the game KU Coach Bill Self said the Huskies deserved to win adding, "they were quicker, bigger, and tougher". ". It'll be a nice challenge, but it'll be really nice to see if we can improve how we attack their zone".

Vick also had seven assists and five rebounds, while Udoka Azubuike ended with 10 points, nine rebounds and two blocks for the Jayhawks (7-1), who had won seven straight entering this game. You can't have one of your best players taken out of the game. That's what that zone does to you sometimes. "Other teams aren't used to it, so they get confused and kind of thrown off. I think Doke was that as much as anything", Self added of the 7-foot sophomore. He was limited to three points on 1-for-8 shooting by the Huskies. Kansas is allowing opponents to score just 61.3 points per game.

"It's not uncommon for them to score 25 in 10 minutes, running clock", Self said. “They made every shot and they did a good job of not letting us get comfortable.”.

Colorado 75, New Mexico 57: Dominique Collier scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and the Buffaloes broke open a close game with a late run to beat the Lobos. We got the ball in the middle and played behind that.

Sunday is expected to be a sellout at Alaska Airlines Arena, as Washington tips off against Gonzaga at 5 p.m. Junior guard Matisse Thybulle has emerged as a dominant defender at the top of the zone. He is just everywhere. No Gator scored in double figures.

"Our Red team is as good probably as some of these team's we've faced, at least in these early contests we've had", Young said. Playing Syracuse the game before Washington hopefully will help us a bit.

That player was senior guard Devonte' Graham, who posted a second straight 35-point performance against the Orange. He hit 10 of 17 versus Syracuse and 14 of 19 against Toledo to become the first player since Andrew Wiggins in 2014 to score 30 or more points in back-to-back games. Tyus Battle led Syracuse in scoring with 22 points on 7-for-20 shooting.

Well, a 2-3 zone does work against Kansas. "It's just trying to be aggressive", Graham said.

Blake scored 18 points in the first half on 7-of-11 shooting, including all four of his 3-pointers.

"I've always been a pretty confident player".

Washington rattled off a four-game win streak over the past two weeks at home, with victories over Seattle U, UC Davis, Kennesaw State, and Nebraska-Omaha. The ball is going in. The Jayhawks' mark was below their season average of 0.628, while the Orange's was below their season average of 0.491.

"The way that I thought we would attack it best on Saturday was very bad", Self said of KU's plan against Syracuse. "I didn't think we played great Saturday by any stretch".

"We need to get better in some areas". "They're all very unsafe shooters, and we just tried to focus to take that away from the game". I told the guys they are doing well.
