Following Kansas sophomore Udoka Azubuike’s six straight missed free throws resulting in an 85-80 loss at Oklahoma on Tuesday, a man entered the dorm that houses the Kansas men’s basketball team on Wednesday and wanted to offer the players “free-throw advice,” University of Kansas police Deputy Chief James Anguiano told Yahoo Sports.
Azubuike went 0-for-6 at the free throw line during the final four minutes of the game on Tuesday after Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger told his team to begin intentionally fouling the Kansas 7-footer. Those four empty Jayhawks possessions helped the Sooners stay in the game, before Christian James and Brady Manek to hit a pair of huge 3-pointers in the final 70 seconds, leading to a Sooners win.
Police were called to McCarthy Hall at 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, Anguiano said, but were unable to find the man after checking the area.
Anguiano did not specify the identity of the man in question. The Lawrence Journal-World reported earlier Wednesday that the man had been at the basketball dorm multiple times during the day before the police were called and was said to be wearing a blue and red windbreaker.Kansas (16-4 overall, 6-2 Big-12), currently holds a one-game lead over Texas Tech (16-4 overall, 5-3 Big-12) in the Big-12 as they attempt to win their 13th consecutive Big-12 title. Their next game comes on Saturday at home against Texas A&M in the Big-12/SEC Challenge. Follow Jacob on Twitter Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter And Like ZAGS on Facebook
