Kansas freshman guard Lagerald Vick made the road trip to San Diego, but he did not suit up for the Jayhawks’ 70-57 victory over San Diego State, missing his second straight game with what KU coach Bill Self said was an illness.
“He’s not feeling good,” Self said. “He’s not 100 percent.”
Vick, a native of Memphis, is averaging just 7.8 minutes per game while getting his feet wet in the Kansas program. It’s likely he would have been available Tuesday if Kansas was in dire need of another body, but for the moment, Vick will continue to be day-to-day.
Self leans on experienced Traylor
After Tuesday’s victory, Self cited one reason for going with senior forward Jamari Traylor during the second half.
“When the game got tight, I went with experience,” Self said. “That was what I was thinking — just put an experienced guy out there.”
Traylor rewarded Self with solid production. He finished with six points and six rebounds while playing for long stretches of the second half.
