KU Sports Extra: Storming Into the Big 12 Semis

The Kansas men's basketball team avenged a pair of regular season losses to Oklahoma State with an impressive 82-68 victory over the Cowboys in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals on Thursday at Sprint Center.

Playing without sophomore center Udoka Azubuike, KU outscored OSU by a point in the first half and by 13 in the second en route to the run-away victory.

Malik Newman poured in 30 points and Silvio De Sousa and Mitch Lightfoot combined for 14 points and 14 rebounds to make up for the absence of Azubuike.

Here are a few thoughts from Tom Keegan and Matt Tait from Sprint Center.
