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.

KU finished with 27 assists on its 32 field goals. Selden dished out five helpers, while Graham and senior forward Jamari Traylor passed out four each.

Kansas opens the regular season Friday against Northern Colorado.

Now that is more like it. We can build from tonight's performance. The guys looked alive and wanting to play. 27 assists on its 32 field goals...unreal. For my money, there is not a better guard or forward in the country than Mason and Ellis, respectively.

Mykailiuk looked great but Greene again showed his defensive shortcomings while guarding the bench.

I wonder what Greene did this week to earn a seat on the bench all night?

IMO Self is trying to identify his base defensive ability. Now we know Greene can prevent his chair from getting into the lane.

didn't have anything to do with Greene defense, his hip locked up on him during warmups, hopefully not a set back. Having said that, he better learn how to move some feet or he will be guarding the chair a lot. I thought Svi looked a little beter on the defensive end tonight so that's a step in the right direction
