No. 2 Kansas escapes with overtime win
Lagerald Vick hit the tying 3-pointer in the closing seconds of regulation, and then had eight of his 27 points in overtime to lead No. 2 Kansas to a 90-84 win over Stanford on Saturday in Lawrence, Kan.
Daejon Davis hit two free throws with 13.3 seconds left to push Stanford’s lead to 75-72 after driving in and drawing a foul by Dedric Lawson. Kansas (6-0) then ran its “chop” play and Devon Dotson found Vick for the tying 3 with just 7 seconds left.
Vick then opened overtime with another 3, and followed it with a poster dunk that set the Allen Fieldhouse crowd into a frenzy. He kept it going the next time down, hitting his seventh 3 to make it an eight-point game and put it out of reach.
