Kansas Takes Down Baylor
This game was one of the most exciting of the season. Kansas and Baylor split victories in the regular season and will more than likely meet again in the Big 12 Championship. Azubuike played a crazy game scoring 23 points and grabbing 19 rebounds. A big question that comes up following this game if not following up 3 three was the right decision. Ultimately Kansas won the game, but the question still remains. Go check out my article about fouling up three to learn more about the statistics surrounding it.
