LAWRENCE, Kan. — Bill Self says if injured junior center Udoka Azubuike had his way, he’d tape his right hand and continue competing for Kansas’ basketball team.

“What’s frustrating is he wants to play, but the pain tolerance wouldn’t allow him to do it,” Self, KU’s 16th-year basketball coach, said Monday at his weekly news conference at Allen Fieldhouse.

Azubuike, a 7-foot junior from Delta, Nigeria, tore a ligament in his hand after getting it hit in a drill at practice on Friday — the day before the Jayhawks’ 77-60 loss to Iowa State at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa.
