Self’s decision to leave Azubuike in late and the resulting missed free throws weren’t the only reason Kansas lost, but Bill Self admits it was a bad decision.
Oklahoma reserve Matt Freeman entered the game after the under-4 timeout, and picked up five fouls in under two minutes of gametime.
Self wanted to see if the big man could step up in a big situation, and was thinking Azubuike would make at least half of his free throws.
Graham failing to switch on a screen left Brady Manek wide open for the game-icing three.
Devonte Graham says he shoulders the blame for the loss.
All of this shouldn’t detract from the performance of Trae Young, scoring 26 points on just 9 shots.
