The Kansas Jayhawks opened up Big 12 Conference play with a 60-53 victory over #16 West Virginia at Allen Fieldhouse. Despite shooting just 21 percent from beyond the three-point line, KU's defense forced the Mountaineers offense to struggle just as much. Udoka Azubuike recorded a double-double, picking up a game-high 17 points and recording 11 rebounds. Other Jayhawks in double-figures included Devon Dotson (16) and Marcus Garrett (12).
For the Jayhawks, this marks their 29th consecutive victory in Big 12 openers. Kansas will hit the road this week as they head to Ames for a matchup against Iowa State. Game time is set for 7 p.m. and can be heard on 104.1 KGGF-FM.
