Lagerald Vick rubs KU opponents with offense, defense and athleticism

Lagerald Vick was on nobody’s radar last season, where the slender 6-5 Kansas freshman guard was learning the major college basketball ropes and was a fixture on the bench.

He only played 91 minutes while averaging 2.1 points in 19 games.

A year later and it is a different story. Vick is one of the team’s most improved players. After studying the system last year and getting acclimated to KU coach Bill Self, Vick is feeling much more comfortable and confident this season.

“I’m being more aggressive, crashing the offensive boards, bringing the ball up the court, creating shots for others and just being a better defender,” Vick said.
