Well, a 2-3 zone does work against Kansas.

The senior guard has done a lot to keep Kansas undefeated as the No. 2 Jayhawks carry a 7-0 record into a game Wednesday against Washington (6-2) at Sprint Center. But he didnt get a whole lot of help as the Jayhawks went 5 for 20 from the 3-point arc, lowlighted by lousy performances from their two best sharpshooters. "They're all very risky shooters, and we just tried to focus to take that away from the game".

Junior guard Lagerald Vick scored a career-high 28 points, but Kansas (7-1) got little offensive help elsewhere.

"We get to go against "em every day", senior guard Devonte" Graham said.

Like Syracuse, the Huskies apply a 2-3 zone but have had problems covering outside shooters.

That dunk energized a previously quiet crowd, but Hopkins called a timeout and Washington responded with seven consecutive points to launch a 13-2 run. "It's usually the guy at the top", said Graham, who has hit 12 of his last 21 three-pointers over two games.

“I felt like this could be our best opportunity to win the game, ” Hopkins said. "We had a situation against Syracuse where one guy bailed us out". Guard Matisse Thybulle led the way with 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting (5-of-8 from three), four rebounds, three assists and two steals.

- Last season the Jayhawks finished 31-5 and ended the season with a defeat to OR in the NCAA tournament Elite Eight.

Colorado 75, New Mexico 57: Dominique Collier scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and the Buffaloes broke open a close game with a late run to beat the Lobos. "... Charlie's got a real quick first step and they both handle the ball really well and can shoot it - C-Mo can shoot real good".

The Huskies rank 93rd in assists allowed per game (12.2) while the Orange rank 310th (17.0).

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

The Huskies are officially ahead of schedule now after being picked to finish 10th in the Pac-12 in the preseason. The Huskies out-rebounded the Jayhawks as well. Self has led Kansas to 14 NCAA tournaments, nine Sweet 16s, seven Elite Eights, two Final Fours and a national championship in 2008.

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 biggest thing is can you score against Kansas", Hopkins said. “I thought our defense was horrendous and our hustle plays werent very good either.”. They're the only team in the country with five players averaging at least 11.9 points. He didn't get into the game. He hit 10 of 17 versus Syracuse and 14 of 19 against Toledo to become the first player since Andrew Wiggins in 2014 to score 30 or more points in back-to-back games. Kansas coach Bill Self became a grandfather for the first time Tuesday when his daughter, Lauren, gave birth to a girl. The Huskies (6-2) will travel to Kansas City to face No. 2 Kansas Wednesday night before returning to Seattle to host No. 12 Gonzaga Sunday.
