The Kansas Jayhawks entered play on Monday against arch-rival Kansas State on a three-game losing skid and badly in need of a win. Losing streaks of this kind isn't exactly a normal thing for the perennial college basketball power, so one can only imagine the frustration they were looking to take out against the Wildcats.One of the Jayhawks who unleashed the fury in the conference affair was 7-foot senior center Jeff Withey. With his team leading 58-43 about midway through the second half, Withey took a pass in the paint and then proceeded to dunk all over Kansas State senior Jordan Henriquez. Oh, and he also drew a foul as well. Needless to say, the home crowd went crazy and so did Withey.Kansas went on to steamroll the Wildcats to help snap the dreaded skid.
