In a defensive move not often seen by Bill Self-coached Kansas squads, the Jayhawks utilized a zone defense in the waning minutes of the first half and for the majority of the second to heavily neutralize the K-State offensive attack.
Oklahoma seems in better shape than Arizona State.
On Thursday, Newman made 11 of 15 field goals, four of six from 3-point range and dished three assists to go along with zero turnovers in 36 minutes.
Mawien and the Wildcats made the Jayhawks work for it in the second half. "They fought a lot of noise all season and to be playing this way at this point in the season shows a lot of character". "We wanted to execute, have fun and be tough".
