LAWRENCE, Kan. — On a night seven-footer Udoka Azubuike suffered a high right ankle sprain that will keep him out indefinitely, Kansas’ No. 2-ranked basketball team managed a 72-47 victory over unranked Wofford on Tuesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

“We’re not gonna have Doke. Doke’s hurt pretty good. He’s got a high ankle sprain. He’ll be out indefinitely,” KU coach Bill Self said at halftime of the TV broadcast of the game.

Azubuike, who grabbed four rebounds in four minutes played the first half, went down under the defensive goal with 11:38 remaining and KU up, 13-12. He fell on the ankle after trying to block the shot of Nathan Hoover, who scored on the play.
