Lawson, Agbaji help Jayhawks pull away in 84-72 win over Oklahoma State

A shorthanded Kansas basketball team, playing without the injured Marcus Garrett and Udoka Azubuike and ineligible Silvio De Sousa, won its first game without senior guard Lagerald Vick on Saturday.

The Jayhawks, who learned on Thursday that Vick was headed home to Memphis for personal reasons while on an indefinite leave of absence, upended an equally depleted Oklahoma State squad 84-72 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Taking the court without veteran Vick against an OSU team that has lost four players since the start of the new year, the Jayhawks — who Saturday were led by Dedric Lawson’s 25 points and Ochai Agbaji’s 23 points — welcomed a new starter into the lineup.
