Game Preview

No. 7 Kansas will host BYU on Tuesday night in Lawrence with leading scorer Kevin McCullar Jr. sidelined again with a bone bruise. McCullar will miss his fifth game in the last eight.

The Jayhawks (21-6, 9-5 Big 12) easily defeated Texas on Saturday night without McCullar, but head coach Bill Self voiced a cautionary tale in the postgame press conference.

“My concern is will he play again this year,” Self said. “It’s not a day-to-day deal. It’s a week-to-week deal. He obviously won’t go on Tuesday. I’m not going to put him out there because he’s missed so much time, even though you can look at games and number of games missed, but that’s not the story. The story is he played against (Oklahoma) and (before that) had two days of a little bit of practice and then played.
