Junior forward Dominic Green defends in Washington's win over Kennesaw State. The Huskies of Washington will take on the Jayhawks of Kansas.
The Washington men's basketball team came into its game against No. 2 Kansas a 22-point underdog, and ESPN's basketball power index only gave the UW a 3 percent chance of victory.
The Washington Huskies (7-2) pulled off a stunner Wednesday night when they downed the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks 74-65 in a de facto road game at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. They'll see more zone as the season unfolds.
The focus of Hopkins' phone conversation with McNamara, another former Syracuse guard himself, was nearly entirely on KU point guard Devonte' Graham, who had torched Syracuse for 35 points and was as hot as any player in the country coming into Wednesday night. None of his points came on three-pointers.
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.
Dickerson amassed six points and seven rebounds in the opening 10 minutes of action, solidifying his presence down low in the first half. Crisp finished with a team-leading seven assists.
The zone master couldn't beat Kansas.
Hopkins said Washington's experience so far this season against less talented teams who like to shoot from the outside as much or more than Kansas (7-1) positioned his squad to be ready for the Wednesday's challenge. The Jayhawks' mark was below their season average of 0.628, while the Orange's was below their season average of 0.491. He made the free throw, giving him 10 first-half points to top the team.
Kansas led by five points early in the first half, but Washington managed to squeeze out a 36-34 halftime lead and then took over in the second half. On the year, the Jayhawks are scoring 91.9 points per game.
Two minutes into the second half, Thybulle threw a attractive lob to Timmins to make the 44-38 Washington.
The UW defense was relentless all game, and on one Jayhawks inbounds pass, they were forced to pass the ball to the opposite baseline to get the ball in. The Huskies are scoring 81.4 points per game, and allowing 78.6 per game.
Lagerald Vick was really the only player to get anything going for Kansas, finishing with 28 points, seven assists and five rebounds.
After Nowell made a jumper that extended the UW's lead to eight, Kansas went on a run.
By the Numbers: Washington 74, Kansas 65. When you are betting on this game, take the Kansas Jayhawks -10.5 over the Washington Huskies.
Washington was the aggressor throughout the game as freshman guard Jaylen Nowell added 17 points.
Though it wasn't technically a home game for Kansas, the Jayhawks had won 35 of their last 44 games played at the Sprint Center. Washington wore its road jerseys for the first time after getting all six of its wins at home and also wearing home jerseys in two NY games earlier this season.
