Kansas’ Udoka Azubuike Suffers Sprained MCL

Kansas Jayhawks center Udoka Azubike will miss the Big 12 tournaments in Kansas City due to a sprained MCL he suffered in practice on Tuesday, according to Jayhawks’ coach Bill Self.

“It is isolated. It is a Grade 1 sprain,” Self said. “We will hold him out this weekend in Kansas City, and he will be re-evaluated Sunday, and our expectation is that he’ll be back on the court next week.”

The 7-foot Azubike is posting 13.7 points and 7.1 rebounds for the Jayhawks, who are ranked 9th, this season.
