Washington stuns Kansas...Florida loses again

Second-ranked Kansas suffered its first loss of the season as Matisse Thybulle hit five 3-pointers and scored 19 points to lead Washington's 74-65 win over the Jayhawks in Kansas City, Mo. However, that is as close as the Jayhawks would get with after the pesky Husky squad responding with a 13-2 run to get their lead into double digits and enough cushion to salt away its first victory over a top-10 ranked opponent since 2010.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Six Tar Heels scored in double figures, led by Jalek Felton with 15 points, as North Carolina overwhelmed Western Carolina.

Thybulle continued his hot shooting early in the second frame, scoring five points in the first five minutes out of the lockerroom and pushing his squad's advantage to 46-40 just over three minutes into the half.

Perrion Callandret added 16 points with five rebounds and five assists for the Vandals.

The zone master couldn't beat Kansas. They hit 4 of 5 3-pointers to that point.

In the Orange's last contest, they were topped by the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks, 76-60. Junior forward Noah Dickerson averages 16.4 points and a team-high 8.0 rebounds. Nowell followed this up a few possessions later when he drove into the lane, jump-stopped, and finished a tough shot in heavy traffic.

The Cougars (6-2) used a 3-pointer from Carter Skaggs and a 3-point play by Robert Franks to get it to 14 on two occasions in the first three minutes of the second half but Sanders had a 3 and five points in a 7-0 run to push the lead to 21 with 15 minutes left and Washington State never challenged. He made the free throw, giving him 10 first-half points to top the team. “I thought our defense was horrendous and our hustle plays werent very good either.”.

Devonte' Graham has been everything we thought he needed to be as he takes over for the departed Mason.

Joburg Open woe for Oosthuizen
I was actually relieved there wasn't a pro-am because I thought the rest would help but this morning it's even worse than it was yesterday.

Graham set a career high for assists (12) in the season opener and also had 11 assists in two other games.

The Huskies barely escaped the Monmouth Hawks in their last game, 84-81.

The UW defense was relentless all game, and on one Jayhawks inbounds pass, they were forced to pass the ball to the opposite baseline to get the ball in. With only seven players in the main rotation, they have not only won every game, but done so impressively. Vick made a couple of buckets, and Udoka Azubuike added a dunk and a layup to cut the lead to one at 53-52.

"When we're playing well we are a good playing team, but we haven't scored all year on plays and that was certainly the case tonight", Self said.

By the Numbers: Washington 74, Kansas 65.

Washington will next face No. 12 Gonzaga on Sunday night at home.

The two things that stand out for the Jayhawks are three-point percentage and free throw percentage. The game starts at 9:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, and will air on ESPN.
