Washington stuns Kansas...Florida loses again

Washington stuns Kansas...Florida loses again

"When you run a 2-3 zone, you've got to leave somebody open".

First-year Washington coach Mike Hopkins saw how Kansas dissected Syracuse's vaunted 2-3 zone defense last week, so he made a couple of tweaks to his own version before facing the Jayhawks on Wednesday night. We need Malik (11.9 points per game but just two against Syracuse on 1-of-8 shooting) to be more of a factor in what is going on.

There were consequences. Junior guard Lagerald Vick netted a career-best 28 points for the Jayhawks, but each of his 12 field goals came from 2-point range. The loss Wednesday night doesn't mean much for Kansas.

The three-point shot has been Kansas' bread and butter so far this season, with multiple guys able to knock down the three from anywhere.

The Huskies frustrated the Jayhawks risky lineup of deep threats, Matisse Thybulle hit five-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. Kansas leads the all-time series edge with Arizona State, 5-4, and won the last meeting, 108-76, on March 22, 2003, in the second round of the 2003 NCAA Tournament in Oklahoma City. The Huskies were never again threatened. This game will take place at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. "It's usually the guy at the top", said Graham, who has hit 12 of his last 21 three-pointers over two games.

"I think we've played about as well as I could have expected us playing against the competition we're playing against", Self said. "We had a situation against Syracuse where one guy bailed us out". The Jayhawks made 11 of 31 three-pointers.

- Last season the Jayhawks finished 31-5 and ended the season with a defeat to OR in the NCAA tournament Elite Eight. We got the ball in the middle and played behind that. Nahziah Carter's layup at the 15:42 mark handed the Huskies their largest lead to that point of the game at 50-42, still with over 15:00 to play. Junior guard David Crisp added 10 points and seven assists, while junior forward Noah Dickerson posted a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds.

NGT holds Art Of Living responsible for Yamuna floodplains damage
The tribunal had also heard arguments of the Delhi Development Authority, Delhi Pollution Control Committee and Art of Living. However, it did not fine the DDA as it has already initiated setting up biodiversity parks along the Yamuna floodplains.

"It's not uncommon for them to score 25 in 10 minutes, running clock", Self said.

Maybe with good reason after a 9-22 finish a year ago prompted a coaching change.

Throw in foul trouble that sent the Jayhawks two big men, Udoka Azubuike and Mitch Lightfoot, to the bench well before halftime and it was no surprise the Huskies took a 36-34 lead into the break.

From there, the Jayhawks transitioned to more of what Self called a "stationary" zone offense, which led to a lot of standing and passing, shooting and passing over the top of the zone.

In spite of a defensive effort that held Kansas to 45.2 percent shooting, well below the 53.5 percent clip the Jayhawks had coming in, Hopkins credited his offense.

The Huskies, who shot 48.3 percent from the field, received double-figure contributions from four players.

"The biggest thing is can you score against Kansas", Hopkins said. "But I think watching it and seeing how [the Orange] do it helps us". Kansas is the only team in the nation with five scorers averaging 11.9 or more points.
