After a loss for his in-state rival, KU got back on track with an 84-72 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday afternoon. Jayhawks, who were without starters Marcus Garrett (injury) and Lagerald Vick (leave of absence), led by two digits for the last 10 plus minutes of the competition.
Kansas (18-6, 7-4) remained unbeaten at home in 14 games, while OSU (9-14, 2-8) did not become the first Big 12 school to win back-to-back games in Allen Fieldhouse, since Iowa State did it in 2000 and 2001.
Jayhawks was led by tandem by Dedric Lawson and Ochai Agbaji in the victory. Agbaji scored 23 points in 8-of-12 shooting, while Lawson went 10-to-17 from the run to end with 25 points. Devon Dotson was the only other KU player to pick double figures when he registered 18 points.
Here's a quick look back at some of the actions:
• The game was reversed: A few freshman players hit three consecutive three-way midway through the second half.
Freshman Quentin Grimes, who has fought over the last few games, finally got his first points midway through the second half. Grimes hit back-to-back 3-pointers, and then Agabi drilled a triple to stretch KU's lead to 65-51.
Jayhawksne was in control from that moment and walked away with a crooked victory.
• Offensive highlight: Agbaji was a horizontal highlight of the offensive and of Kansas.
The sensational freshman who did not make his debut until January 9, had brought a much-needed spark to an exhausted roster. It was never more evident in the victory against the cowboys when Agabji filled up the lack of sharp senior Lagerald Vick.
Agbaji drilled three triples in a 15-point first half and completed the game with five 3-pointers for the KU
• Defensive highlight: It did not take long for freshman Devon Dotson to influence Oklahoma State.
Dotson was aggressive early and came in the passing lanes, and it led to high-ranking sequence early in the first half. Dotson, who has been successful in timely stealing, did so to give the KU a 4-0 advantage.
Dotson was on the ball in the left distance of his man. Just before the pass came, Dotson jumped in the road to snatch the ball. He spun away from the lone OSU player who flushed a dunk in transition at the other end.
