Looks like Udoka Azubuike is going to give it a go tonight. He looks about normal in warmups. We’ll see how it feels after a few game minutes, but it certainly looks like he’s going to be there.— Rock Chalk Blog (@RockChalkBlog) March 5, 2020
Kansas Jayhawks senior center Udoka Azubuike is listed as questionable for Wednesday night’s game against the TCU Horned Frogs with an ankle injury. He landed on a Kansas State player’s foot early in Saturday’s win over the Jayhawks’ in-state rival. He returned and played 20 minutes total.
According to KUsports.com, Azubuike has been pushing himself to get ready to play his senior night game. He has appeared in every game so far this season.
Azubuike is second on the team in scoring average with 13.1 points per game and grabs 10.3 rebounds on average this season to lead the Jayhawks. He is also averaging 2.6 blocks and he was held without a block against Kansas State for the first time since Jan. 8, a span of 14 games.
Whether Azubuike appears for his final home game as a Jayhawk, Kansas is currently listed as 16.5-point favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Kansas beat the Horned Frogs 60-46 on Feb. 8, and Azubuike had a monster game with 20 points and 15 rebounds on 10 of 14 shooting from the floor.
