No. 2 Kansas es­capes with over­time win

Star-Telegram (Sunday) - - Sports -

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.
