Ochai Agbaji did not travel with the Kansas Jayhawks to the Iowa State Cyclones due to COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols. The Jayhawks guard is a leading candidate for Big 12 Player of the Year and the Wooden Award. The team will face a difficult game without their best player on the road against the Iowa State Cyclones. There is currently no indication of how many games the star guard could miss.

Thus far this season, Ochai Agbaji has averaged 20.9 points, 4.9, rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. He has also shot 51.5 percent from the field and 46.4 percent from the three-point line. He is an invaluable part of the Bill Self and Kansas Jayhawks game plan. The scoring burden will largely fall to Christian Braun and Jalen Wilson without Agbaji on the court.
Ochai Agbaji. How?

The Kansas Jayhawks are currently ranked 10th in the nation and first in the Big 12 Standings. Iowa State will present a challenge for the team. They are ranked 20th in the nation but sit at 6th in the Big 12 Standings. The Cyclones team could use a top-rated win and beating Kansas would provide just that for a team with 2022 NCAA Tournament aspirations.
Ochai Agbaji will likely be a draft selection in the 2022 NBA Draft, but until then the Jayhawks are hoping he can help them win an NCAA Championship. A win without him on the court would also be a statement victory for the Kansas Jayhawks. We here at Def Pen Sports wish the star guard a swift return to the court.
