Ranked No. 1 in the country and saddled with just three losses on the season, the Kansas men's basketball team has had plenty of things go right during the past few months. And there are three players who typically receive most of the credit for that. Each has had his stretch — or stretches — in which he has carried the team and helped make Kansas the legitimate national title contender it appears to be. And all three, when clicking at the same time, have made Kansas nearly unstoppable. So which one has been KU's most valuable player? Here are the cases for Udoka Azubuike, Devon Dotson and Marcus Garrett as KU's 2019-20 team MVP.
