Kansas' David McCormack was not happy coming off the bench to start Big 12 play.
Heading into Tuesday's meeting between the No. 9 Jayhawks and Oklahoma at Norman, Okla., McCormack said his three-game stint with the reserve unit has given him motivation.
"You always want to hear your name in the starting lineup," McCormack said. "At the same time, it is about production, whether you come off the bench or start. I guess you could say, (as Coach Bill Self) likes to say, (it) 'lit a fire within me.' It just made me play a little bit harder, be a little bit more tenacious."
