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.
Were not gonna have Doke. Dokes hurt pretty good. Hes got a high ankle sprain. Hell 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.
