Veteran forward Tarik Black comfortable in backup role for KU

Tarik Black transferred to play a prominent role on a KU team that had a solid opportunity to be an NCAA contender. But through 26 games, Black is averaging just 4.3 points and 11.2 minutes per game, nearly half of what he averaged last season at Memphis. You’d expect that would feel like a disappointment for a player who left his hometown school (Memphis) to play behind a freshman star (Joel Embiid). But Black doesn’t see it that way.
