Texas got off to a roaring start in the Big-12 with a blowout win at Kansas State and a second win against West Virginia. It’s given those two wins back with back-to-back losses, one at Oklahoma State by three and another by single-digits, at home, to Texas Tech.
Freshman Jaxson Hayes is second on the team with 10.1 points per game and he’s shooting 75 percent from the field. It’s a good thing because both Matt Coleman and Dylan Osetkowski are underperforming.
Coleman is just a sophomore but it felt like he was ready to breakout after an impressive freshman year. Osetkowski is a senior who played 35 minutes a game last season.
Then again, Osetkowski only shot 40 percent from the field last season. It does have to be a good sign that his minutes are down this season. It means Texas is deeper than the version of itself that lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last season.
Kansas won on the road for the first time in conference play, downing Baylor on Saturday, 73–68. The Jayhawks shot way better than Baylor did (54.5 percent from the field to 33 percent) but gave up a ton of offensive rebounds without Udoka Azubuike and turned it over too much for Bill Self’s liking.
Self leaned on LaGerald Vick, Devon Dotson and Dedric Lawson. The trio combined to play 101 minutes and score one shy of 50.
The Azubuike news isn’t new but it isn’t so old that I won’t mention it here. He’s out for the year following hand surgery. Kansas has the depth to step in but nobody is going to replace the pure physicality Azubuike brought to the table.
