Elijah Johnson should be part of the final rotation that is set before the tournament starts. I trust his ball handling skills and decision-making much more than Taylor's.

This young man has a great future ahead of him at KU .. Its going to be a highlight reel for ESPN nightly .. He is fast.. has great ball handling skills and can really get off the floor .. I can't wait to see more of his talent...

These polls are getting better and better, tough choice here I actually went with Tyshawn because I feel he seems more comfortable shooting and not as reluctant.

jhawk7728 - the first point has been obvious since day one. EJ is the better ball-handler. On point two, I'd trust my 9 year old's decision making over TT on the basketball court. At least I know he thinks of the team first.

KULightsOut: And that is a good thing? Two stupid turnovers, 0 fer from three, gets blown by then commits a foul, can't score one-on-one on a break and gets his shot blocked. Only positive was a nice take with the foul. The "steal" bounced off the defender right to him .. the last guy on the bench would have scored. I don't see anything to hang my hat on.

If you want good production out of him TT in the future he has to be ready to take the shot as well as pass, 8 FGA was his highest in a winning effort in two months. It seems like he gets turnovers when he tries to drive and is always looking to pass and just gets to deep and out of control, Sherron just gets the killer instinct when the pass isn't there and passes it to the net.

Watch the Bill Self show, especially clips of the second half, and listen to what he has to say about Tyshawn. His to's are still getting him bench time, but he had 0 assist @ UT, and 4 against ISU along with a lot of first-pass assist (setting up for an assist). Someone will teach him how to make smarter choices on that Kansas bench.
