Notebook: Self, Graham both claim responsibility for loss at OU

You never know just how you look through other people’s eyes

NCAA Basketball: Kansas State at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Is Billy Preston’s departure to Europe really the continuation of a “worrisome trend” for KU basketball?
