KANSAS 75, GEORGETOWN 70

Box score

— Kansas University freshman point guard Devonté Graham sprained an ankle with 10 minutes left in the Jayhawks’ Wednesday win over Georgetown.

Graham didn’t return to the game.

“He turned his ankle. They re-taped it (in locker room). He’ll be sore, but he’ll be fine,” KU coach Bill Self said, noting it wasn’t serious.

Frank Mason III, who sprained an ankle in KU’s win over Florida on Dec. 5, scored 14 points.

Mason, of Petersburg, Virginia, and Graham of Raleigh, North Carolina, had a batch of supporters in the stands.

“Frank and Devonté needed a lot of tickets,” Self said on the pre-game radio show. “Frank had two buses (of people) that bought tickets in addition to all the people coming up. He’ll have 60, 70, 80 people here who are proud to see him play.”

Graham and Mason are too quick for their own good apparently.

Man, I love overall the play of Mason and Graham. Did anyone see how fast & quick Graham pushed ahead on the transition layup attempt. Damn near as fast as Tyshawn.

I am reminded of how Self's own desires from his PG seem to have evolved from the RussRob days, having been colored more aggressive by the likes of Sherron Collins and goodTyshawn's senior year. It is also what EJ couldnt do, because he didnt have that personality, unless you pissed him off, as IowaState fans learned. And maybe Self has been a bit influenced by what Calipari is doing at KY. After all, they are both royalty coaches, often trying to get the same recruits. Self maybe saw that he cant have too tight of reigns. Now, the recurring mantra is for everybody to 'be aggressive'. Thank you, Sherron and Tyshawn, but you have left your mark...and I mean this in a 100% positive way.

Now, Self has multiple athletic guys that can drive: Mason, Graham, Selden, Oubre, and maybe Svi...That's a lot of guys to put pressure on an opponent. Notice how we are getting a big chunk of pts from the FT line. Recall Tyshawn lived at the FT line.

Best part of it: season is young, and our guys will only get better.
