Black’s scary moment
Kansas senior forward Tarik Black hada scary moment in the second half when he suffered what, at first, appeared to be a serious knee injury against Baylor. Black, 6-foot-8 and 266 pounds, stayed on the floor for several moments before he was helped off by trainers — although right away it appeared as if he was able to put light pressure on the leg. Black returned to the court on his own strength after going to the locker room for tests and Kansas coach Bill Self said after the game Black had twisted his ankle.
