KU freshman David McCormack prepares for increased role

KU freshman David McCormack spoke to reporters Thursday afternoon in Allen Fieldhouse. McCormack is embracing a larger role while junior center Udoka Azubuike is sidelined with an ankle sprain.

“(I don’t) try to go play like any other person or impersonate anybody else’s game," McCormack said. "Even with more minutes, I know I’m going to stick to what I do well, stick to a role and, if I do that well, it not only benefits me but it benefits the team.”

No. 2 KU (7-0) plays New Mexico State at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Sprint Center.
