KANSAS 87, RIDER 60

Box score

Kansas University junior forward Perry Ellis, who had four points and two boards against Kentucky, responded with 17 points in 26 minutes during KU’s 87-60 home win against Rider.

He had three boards.

“Perry played well. He was aggressive the first half (11 points in 12 minutes),” KU coach Bill Self said. “He attacked the rim one time really well. He gets three rebounds in 26 minutes, so he’s getting one rebound every nine minutes. In a game like that, he should be getting one rebound every four minutes. He’s got to a better job rebounding the ball. When it really gets down to it, if you’re going to be a good rebounding team, of course, your guards need to clean up but still your big guys who play the majority of the minutes have got to go get numbers. They’ve got to go get balls. All our big guys have to do a better job with that.”

Ellis said: “We definitely were anxious (to play a game after the Kentucky loss). We’ve been working hard and had some really tough practices. So we were definitely ready to get out there and get after it.”

That was a very good sign - Perry pumped up his fist and yelled "YES" when he got an AND-1. I've never seen him with expression like that. Oh, and keep the dunks coming, boy.. ;)

Bounces back??? It was against Rider with their bigs in foul trouble.

Don't beleive me - “He attacked the rim one time really well. He gets three rebounds in 26 minutes, so he’s getting one rebound every nine minutes. In a game like that, he should be getting one rebound every four minutes. He’s got to a better job rebounding the ball". - Self

He also missed at least 4 box outs which might have helped Rider to 15 OR.

He is still the shadow warrior on defense and basically just a offense guy who looks good in summer camps.

Those are Self's words Brett, his quote, did you even read the article??? Is Self a Jayhawk? Wake up!

Perry is soft, has been since day one.

preseason all-conference teams lol, remind when do they hand out awards? Preseason or......end of the season???

I hate to always come on here and seemly criticize Ellis but the guy has to push himself all the time. The aggressive slam and poetic spin move showoff his skills. For most of his minutes Ellis seemed complacent playing with indifference as shown by his inability to box out and only 3 boards.

The smallest guy on our team, Mason, got five boards ...equaling the total produced by Ellis AND Traylor....in about half the court time.

It seemed like Self had lit a fire under Perry's @$$ the way he played in the first half. If only there was a way to keep that fire going the second half...

It is what Self says above, paragraph two and it is in the box score, he played 26 mins. and had 3 rebounds. Now if you are shocked that he even got three, ok I get where you are coming from lol :)
