  1. Self on Tuesday's "Hawk Talk:" Freshman guard Ochai Agbaji will play Wednesday vs. TCU

    Posted by Matt Tait

    The groundwork was laid a couple of days earlier, but the move became official on Tuesday night.

    On his weekly "Hawk Talk" radio show on KLWN on Tuesday night, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self announced that freshman guard Ochai Agbaji would in fact be available to play during Wednesday's game against No. 25 TCU.

    The move to bring Agbaji into the lineup will put an end to the plan to redshirt the 6-foot-5 freshman from Kansas City, Mo. And it figures to inject a little life into a KU roster searching for ways to move on without 7-foot center Udoka Azubuike, who was lost for the season after suffering a wrist injury during last Friday's practice.

    Agbaji, of course, will not slide into the 7-foot center's position. But he will bring an added element of athleticism and perimeter depth to a team that figures to play a lot of four-guard lineups the rest of the way.
