Down go the Jayhawks.
Kansas rose to be the second-ranked team in the nation after their furious 7-0 start. They would face off Wednesday against a Washington team with two losses, but clearly a bone to pick with the Jayhawks.
Washington would impose their will upon Bill Self's squad, besting them 74-65 and handing Kansas their first loss of their young season.

For Washington, junior guard Matisse Thybulle led the way for the Huskies pouring in a team-high 19-points to go along with four rebounds and three assists.
In the win, Thybulle did have a significant amount of help, however. Washington's victory was a total team effort as the Huskies had four players finish in double-digits while LaGerald Vick was the only Jayhawk to finish with more than 10 points. Vick had a game-high 28.
Alas, it wouldn't be enough to overcome a Washington team that looked like a well-oiled machine, outscoring Kansas by seven in the final frame. The Huskies were a 22-point underdog heading into this one.
The Jayhawks will look to bounce back Sunday against Arizona State while the Huskies will see Georgia.
