BOULDER, Colo. -- They spoke with soft voices and faraway looks in their eyes. The Kansas Jayhawks seemed to be searching for something Saturday afternoon as they emerged one-by-one from a cramped visitors’ locker room at the Coors Events Center, a building they used to own.
Perhaps they were still shellshocked after watching another last-second shot find the bottom of the basket and another wild celebration for the second time in just over a week. This time it was Colorado guard Askia Booker who beat them 75-72 with a running 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Star freshmen Andrew Wiggins might have played his best game yet for the Jayhawks with 22 points and five rebounds in 28 minutes. He lamented a missed free throw in the final seconds that would have tied the game before Booker’s shot and seemed to dismiss as luck the game-winner that sailed over his out-stretched arm.
“He had a one out of like 50 chance of making that shot,” Wiggins said, “And he made it.”
