College Basketball: Washington Huskies vs. Kansas Jayhawks

College basketball roundup: Washington stuns No. 2 Kansas, 74-65

Second-ranked Kansas suffered its first loss of the season as Matisse Thybulle hit five 3-pointers and scored 19 points to lead Washington's 74-65 win over the Jayhawks in Kansas City, Mo. Washington has a tough stretch, as they take on Gonzaga next.

Indeed, the Huskies (7-2) led throughout the second half, though the Jayhawks (7-1) closed the margin to 53-52 on a lob to sophomore center Udoka Azubuike with 9:43 remaining. "So for our team to go against Charlie, guys that play with a lot of pace, and the Lawson brothers are super talented, it brings a lot to our team because our guys get to go against some pretty high-caliber guys every day". Its really the kryptonite of the zone, ” said Hopkins, who spent 22 years on Jim Boeheims staff at Syracuse, a tenure that came in handy considering the Jayhawks just beat the Orange.

"Even though it's enough to make me mad", Self said, "it's probably good for us".

Noah Dickerson added 13 points and 14 rebounds for the Huskies (7-2), who knocked the Jayhawks (7-1) from the ranks of the unbeaten with their first victory over them since December 1974.

"You know, if you look at our Red team, if Billy's on the Red team along with Dedric, that's as good of a front line as we're going to go against", Self said. But on a night we didn't have much going on, Devonte' needed to do that. But he didnt get a whole lot of help as the Jayhawks went 5 for 20 from the 3-point arc, lowlighted by lousy performances from their two best sharpshooters.

Devonte Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk who are both scoring near 20 points per game this season, were held to just three and eight points, respectively on the night. When you are betting on this game, take the Kansas Jayhawks -10.5 over the Washington Huskies. "I thought the guys executed and made shots".

In truth, the Jayhawks had little trouble getting Vick open shots in the middle of the zone. Graham raised his 3-point percentage to 40.8 and quickly rose to become the Jayhawks' leading scorer with an 18.6-point average while also leading the team in minutes (33.6), assists (8.0) and steals (2.3). The Huskies out-rebounded the Jayhawks as well. The Huskies were never again threatened. "We figured it out in the second half and it got contagious".

Even when the Jayhawks caught a break, like a technical foul on David Crisp in the closing minutes, they couldnt capitalize.

- G Sviatoslov Mykhailiuk (6-8, 205, Sr.) averages 17.1 points per contest, which is fifth in the Big 12.

“You could see this coming, ” Self said. "I think the guys will be excited". But when were not, we get average real quick.”.

- G Lagerald Vick (6-5, 175, Jr.) is KU's third-leading scorer (16.4 points per game), but could be the first Jayhawk taken in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. They hit 4 of 5 3-pointers to that point. Grace Colaivalu led Colorado State with 13 points.

Graham averages 18.6 points, 8.0 assists and 4.6 rebounds a game.

The Huskies frustrated the Jayhawks' unsafe lineup of deep threats, Matisse Thybulle hit five three-pointers and scored 19 points, and Washington kept its poise down the stretch for a 74-65 victory that knocked No. 2 Kansas from the ranks of the unbeaten.
