Having already scored 114 points earlier this week in a romp over Texas Southern, the No. 3-ranked Jayhawks look to finish their Thanksgiving week off with another convincing victory, as Oakland visits Allen Fieldhouse.
Billy Preston is NOT warming up tonight. Out for another game.
Duke and Texas tied tonight. If Texas wins, Kansas could be playing for the No. 1 ranking next week.
Got an "Oooh" from the crowd when the Duke-Texas game was shown on the video board. OT in Portland.
Starters tonight, as expected: Lagerald Vick, Devonte Graham, Svi Mykhailiuk, Malik Newman and Udoka Azubuike.
Oakland starters: Kendrick Nunn, Martez Walker, Brailen Neely, Jalen Hayes and Isaiah Brock.
Billy Preston in glasses and standing alongside transfers Sam Cunliffe, Charlie Moore and the Lawson brothers.
National anthem over. Starting lineups time.
Sign in the front row of the student section: "Black Friday Shopping, Dok's Dunks 50% off." Thought that was a nice one.
Udoka wins the tip and we are underway
Udoka finishes the first possession with an alley-oop from Vick.
Newman starting on Kendrick Nunn, Oakland's leading scorer.
Udoka with another dunk, plus the foul. Airballed a FT his last time at the charity stripe.
Svi with a step-back jumper. He's dangerous off the dribble this season.
Malik Newman fouls a 3-point shooter. That hurts.
Udoka grabs an offensive rebound and he's rewarded with a layup. Nice pass by Graham to Udoka on the bucket.
Devonte Graham blocked at the rim. Udoka there to clean it up with a put-back slam. Nine points.
Not sure Oakland has a player to matchup with Azubuike. Just helpless in the paint.
Azubuike picks up a loose ball foul. Bill Self says, "Come on!" Lightfoot checks in.
Graham goes behind the back to find Svi for a 3. Wow.
