Lagerald Vick got his career-high out of the way early. All that was left was his shot at program history.
Vick, the Kansas basketball guard, scored 23 points — including matching a personal-best with 15 in the first half alone — to lead the No. 4 Jayhawks past Long Beach State, 91-61, on Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.
However, Vick would not get another shot off — at least, another shot that counted. His breakaway dunk with 4:33 left to play was wiped away thanks to a foul on the other end of the court by teammate Carlton Bragg, who Vick replaced in the starting lineup before the UNC Asheville contest.
“I think Carlton must be mad at him or something,” KU coach Bill Self joked on Bragg’s foul, “because that was probably the worst foul we’ve committed since I’ve been here, or Lagerald would’ve gotten the record.”
