While all the talk around Kansas University basketball the past few days has focused on the waiting game surrounding Cheick Diallo’s eligibility, the Jayhawks looked locked in Tuesday night in a 95-59 victory over Fort Hays State.
Five Jayhawks finished in double figures and KU shot 60 percent from the floor to finish the preseason.
Senior forward Perry Ellis led all scorers with 16 points, sophomore guard Svi Mykhailiuk scored 15 off the bench by hitting 5 of 8 from three-point range, junior point guard Frank Mason contributed 14 points and six assists, and guards Wayne Selden Jr. and Devonté Graham added 11 points apiece for the No. 4-ranked Jayhawks, who made 32 of their 53 shots.
Knasas hit 10 of 21 from downtown, with Mason, Selden, Graham, Ellis and Carlton Bragg adding to Mykhailiuk’s long-range contributions.
