Kansas guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10) floats in for a bucket against Austin Peay during the second half, Thursday, March 17, 2016 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.
Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, who played some point guard in practice this season and also worked as emergency/experimental lead guard in a game or two, was asked last weekend in Louisville, Ky., if he might become a true combo guard if he decides to stay for a third season at Kansas University.

All week, during their preparation for a first-round matchup with No. 1 overall seed Kansas University in the NCAA Tournament, the Austin Peay Governors focused on names like Ellis, Selden, Mason and Graham. And then a guy who entered the tournament as the Jayhawks’ fifth-leading scorer at 5.7 points per game in an average of 13 minutes, checked in early in the first half and blew up their plans.
