The No. 2-ranked Kansas Jayhawks (5-0), featuring the nation’s leader in field-goal percentage, sophomore center Udoka Azubuike (77.6 percent), look to keep rolling as Toledo (3-2) visits Allen Fieldhouse.
For those still holding out hope of a quick resolution, Billy Preston is NOT warming up tonight. Likely out again.
Who's the player to watch for KU tonight? I'll go with Malik Newman. He's off to a slow start this season, but you always get the sense that's he's one game from catching fire. Too good of a shooter.
KU starters are the same as usual: Graham, Newman, Vick, Mykhailiuk and Azubuike. For Toledo: Tre'Shaun Fletcher, Justin Roberts, Jaelan Sanford, Nate Navigato and Taylor Adway.
Justin Roberts elicits a cheer from the Allen Fieldhouse crowd.
I will guess Roberts won't receive a cheer if he scores in the first few minutes, though.
Starting lineups are over. Game time.
Udoka loses the tip... Toledo ball.
Offensive foul on Udoka on the 1st possession. He'll stay in the game.
KU gets a bench warning following the offensive foul.
Malik Newman with the game's first points.
Devonte Graham swishes a 3. 5-0 in a slow start for both teams.
Lightfoot in for Azubuike.
Lightfoot called for an illegal screen right before the media timeout. That hurts.
