Jackson tops ratings in victory at Texas

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) shoots over Texas defenders Andrew Jones (1) and Jarrett Allen (31) during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game, Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, in Austin, Texas.

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) shoots over Texas defenders Andrew Jones (1) and Jarrett Allen (31) during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game, Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, in Austin, Texas.

1 - Josh Jackson: Shots when flying to the hoop rimmed out, but he had active 38 minutes. Made just 3 of 11 field goals, but hit 2 of 3 3-pointers. Came to Kansas with an ugly shot and has worked hard with shot doctor Kurtis Townsend to make it better. Has made 19 of 35 3-pointers (.543) in last 11 games. Led Kansas with 18 points and had five rebounds and five assists. He's such a gifted passer.
2 - Devonte Graham: Played under control most of the time at both ends on his way to 12 points, three rebounds, four assists and two steals.
3 - Frank Mason: When Texas drew close in the second half he got to the paint and then the free-throw line. His 26th game with at least one 3-point field goal wasn’t assured until four minutes and change remained. Made just 5 of 15 field goals and had 16 points, three rebounds, three assists and three turnovers.
4 - Landen Lucas: Eight points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal and didn’t miss a shot in 38 minutes.
5 - Dwight Coleby: Dwight Coleby 12 points in 13 minutes? What next, is Bill Walton going to remove his shirt and replaced with a tie-dyed "Keep Austin Weird" T-shirt on air during the game? By far best game as a Jayhawk. The more distance he puts on acl surgery, the better he becomes. Not real quick, but strong with good hands. He made 5 of 6 field goals, all at the hoop and totaled 12 points and four rebounds in 13 minutes.
6 - Lagerald Vick: More attentive as a rebounder, he picked up four off the defensive boards to go with seven points in 24 minutes. Definitely on the upswing.
7 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Missed all five shots, all of them 3-pointers, and did not have an assist. Vick has been playing better than him of late.
8 - Carlton Bragg: Two fouls in three minutes and didn’t return. Disappointing coming on the heels of a good game.

All-around action puts Josh Jackson at top of ratings in title-clincher vs. TCU

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) goes up to the bucket after a blocking foul by TCU forward Chris Washburn (33) during the first half, Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse.

1 — Josh Jackson: Great dunks and passes, boards and deflections made for a coast-to-coast spectacular night for Jackson (15 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one turnover, one steal). With all the technological advances in sports, when is someone going to invent a device that instantly flashes the velocity of dunks on the scoreboard? Jackson’s one-handed flush on a transition lob from Frank Mason early in the second half made a loud noise and triggered a louder one from the crowd. Jackson’s passing was every bit as impressive, including his lob to Lagerald Vick and quick interior pass to Landen Lucas. Jackson unwittingly also was responsible for the quietest moment of the evening. With 11:37 left in first half, he came down hard on his right foot, writhed in pain on the floor while gripping the bottom of his sneaker and immediately headed into the locker room and returned about five minutes of game clock later.

2 — Frank Mason: Made 4 of 6 3-pointers and scored a game-high 20 points to go with four assists, another strong night for his Wooden Award case.

3 — Carlton Bragg: Even Lazarus would have been impressed. Terrific night from the sophomore, who busted from a season-long slump with energetic, productive play. Ran the floor hard and had 15 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots in 22 minutes. Had eight points, five rebounds and two blocked shots in 13 first-half minutes. In the strangest moment of the night, his early free throw got stuck on the side of the rim, not something you see every day on a free throw.

4 — Devonte’ Graham: Scoreless with seven minutes remaining in the first half, Graham caught fire and never cooled off. Finished with 17 points, four rebounds, seven assists and just one turnover. Reverse layin, a 3 from top of key off the dribble, another 3 after a shot fake and dribble got him off to a good start in the first two minutes and change of the second half. Celebrated his 22nd birthday by celebrating his school’s 13th consecutive Big 12 regular-season title.

5 — Landen Lucas: Picked up two fouls in seven scoreless first-half minutes with just one rebound. Finished with seven points and six rebounds on a night he committed four fouls and played just 17 minutes.

6 — Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 2 of 4 3-pointers, turned it over twice and finished with six points in an unimpressive night.

7 — Lagerald Vick: Has to get to the 3-point shooter a lot quicker, as in don’t think first, just run at him, eliminate that blink of a hesitation and get those long arms in front of the shooter. Missed all three 3-point attempts, but did trigger wild reaction from crowd by throwing down lob from Jackson and pitched in with three rebounds and a blocked shot in 10 minutes.

8 — Dwight Coleby: Emphatically slammed home offensive rebound in final minute.

9 — Mitch Lightfoot: Trillion-club entry. One minute, zeros across the board.

Mason tops ratings at Baylor

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) swoops in for a bucket late during the second half, Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017 at Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas.

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) swoops in for a bucket late during the second half, Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017 at Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas. by Nick Krug

1 - Frank Mason: Put multiple lobs right on target for Josh Jackson, went 8 for 8 from the line, had two steals, eight assists, one turnover and a game-high 23 points. His and-one reverse layup was the play of the game.
2 - Josh Jackson: Deflected multiple passes and made himself disruptive to the Bears' chances of winning in so many ways, making winning plays usually reserved for guards and others that only big men make. His versatility was on display right through the final possession, when he left his man, a 7-footer, to double a 5-11 point guard. Jackson's statistics (16 points, one rebound, two assists, four blocked shots) don't begin to tell the story of the influence he had on the victory.
3 - Landen Lucas: Won the game with an offensive rebound and two free throws with 11.5 seconds left and kept Baylor from running the play it wanted to run to force overtime. Limited to 31 minutes by foul trouble, Lucas totaled eight points, seven rebounds (six offensive) and three blocked shots. Kansas outscored Baylor by 10 points when Lucas was in the game and Baylor had an eight-point advantage when Lucas sat.
4 - Lagerald Vick: Stormed off the bench to contribute eight points and six minutes, played under control and with strong defensive energy.
5 - Devonte' Graham: Made just 1 of 12 shots and 1 of 9 from 3-point range, ending a streak of eight consecutive games with mutliple 3-pointers. Had four assists, one turnover and played strong defense.
6 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Not his day, Svi made 1 of 6 shots and 1 of 5 3-pointers and had two turnovers..
7 - Carlton Bragg: Mason set him up beautifully for an uncontested dunk, but other than that Bragg wasn't able to do anything to merit more than five minutes of playing time. Committed two fouls and did not pick up a rebound or lend much strength defensively.
8 - Mitch Lightfoot: Played four minutes and blocked a shot.

Graham catches fire late to top ratings vs. West Virginia

Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4) hits a three over West Virginia guard Daxter Miles Jr. (4) in overtime, Monday, Feb. 13, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4) hits a three over West Virginia guard Daxter Miles Jr. (4) in overtime, Monday, Feb. 13, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Devonte’ Graham: Scored 14 of his 18 points in the final 6:56, when he made four 3-pointers. Made some terrific dribble moves to free himself for a couple of them. Has made multiple 3-pointers in eight consecutive games. Big night came on one-year anniversary of outplaying Buddy Hield in Norman.

2 - Frank Mason: Made 16 of 18 free throws, including the pair that sent the game into overtime. Made just 3 of 13 shots and 2 of 6 3-pointers, but ended up with 24 points and is averaging 20.2.

3 - Josh Jackson: Showed such great quickness getting to the rim, only to have his shots bounce out. He had six turnovers, but almost balanced that ledger with five steals. Produced his ninth double-double and fifth in the past six games with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

4 - Landen Lucas: Had a rough night at the free-throw line, making just 2 of 7, dropping his season percentage to .591. But on a night so many teammates missed shots at the rim, his presence came in handy and he slammed home two of the misses. Totaled eight points, 13 rebounds, two blocks and two steals. Had five offensive rebounds. Had a plus-minus of plus-22.

5 - Lagerald Vick: Shot 4 for 4 in a first half in which no other Kansas player made more than one field goal. Finished with 14 points, 10 in the first half, two assists and a steal.

6 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Fouled out in 21 minutes after totaling four points and three rebounds.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Played eight minutes and totaled three rebounds and two blocked shots.

8 - Dwight Coleby: Played two minutes, scored on a put-back slam and punctuated it with a glare into the camera.

9 - Carlton Bragg: He fouled out in 18 scoreless minutes and had one rebound. Had a plus-minus of minus-14. Nothing can be said that would not be drowned out by those loud-talking numbers, so we’ll let the numbers do the talking. I'm going to change the subject before I sever my tongue from biting it so hard.

Josh Jackson easy call for top spot in 80-79 victory vs. Texas Tech

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) defends the bucket over Texas Tech guard Keenan Evans (12) late in the second half, Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 at United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas.

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) defends the bucket over Texas Tech guard Keenan Evans (12) late in the second half, Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 at United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas. by Nick Krug

1 - Josh Jackson: As dominant a performance as any Kansas player has had this season. Played 40 minutes and committed just one turnover. Made 12-of-15 shots, 2-of-4 3-pointers and 5-of-7 free throws. Did a terrific job of finding open teammates, sometimes in the corner after the lane became clogged on his drives. Played so under control on his way to 31 points, 11 rebounds and four assists. Committed just two personal fouls.

2 - Landen Lucas: Had only five rebounds, but two huge ones late in the game came off the offensive boards. Set the screen that sprung Jackson for a drive that resulted in him hitting the game-winning free throw.

3 - Devonte’ Graham: Did a nice job of keeping the ball moving, but when he was open and it came to him he drew too much iron. Made 2-of-8 shots, including 2-of-6 from 3.

4 - Frank Mason: Played 13 first-half minutes and had one point and two fouls. Was 0-for-3 from field in first half and couldn’t keep Keenan Evans (17 first-half points) in front of him. Mason, slowed by illness, performed better in the second half before fouling out with 3:05 left. Finished with 12 points and five rebounds in 26 minutes. Played entire game without an assist, breaking streak of 44 games with at least one assist.

5 - Lagerald Vick: Scored seven points in 25 minutes and drew praise from Texas Tech coach Chris Beard on a night that KU’s bench outscored Tech’s, 9-2.

6 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Niem Stevenson carved him up with drives to the hoop and although Svi sparked Kansas with nine first-half points, he went scoreless in the second half.

7 - Carlton Bragg: Had three turnovers in 12 minutes to go with two points, two rebounds and three turnovers. His hands have been so shaky that at times it looks as if guards put up contested shots, rather than run the risk of him dropping a pass, an understandable decision.

Fearless Frank Mason atop the ratings (and a table on press row) vs. Kansas State

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) shushes the Kansas State student section before a couple of late free throws from Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4) with seconds remaining in the game, Monday, Feb. 6, 2017 at Bramlage Coliseum.

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) shushes the Kansas State student section before a couple of late free throws from Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4) with seconds remaining in the game, Monday, Feb. 6, 2017 at Bramlage Coliseum. by Nick Krug

1 - Frank Mason: It’s not accurate to say that Mason competes for all 94 feet of the floor. That sells him short by about 20 feet. He had such a head of steam going to get back on defense after a Kansas turnover that he ended up in the second row of press row, on the floor. He got back up, jumped onto a table and used it to hurdle himself back on the floor and into the action, where he immediately picked up a steal. Classic Fearless Frank move. And oh yeah, almost forgot. He also scored 21 points.
2 - Josh Jackson: Picked up fourth foul with 9:56 left and was limited to 25 minutes on the night, time enough to contribute 18 points and three steals. He made a pair of 3-pointers early in the second half and has made 18 of his last 34 shots from long range. Next challenge: Improve from the line.
3 - Devonte’ Graham: Huge 3-pointer put Kansas up, 56-50 with nine-plus left. If he had not had four turnovers and had done something productive during those possessions, he might have flirted with a triple-double. Totaled 10 points, seven rebounds and six assists.
4 - Landen Lucas: Foul trouble limited him to 26 minutes, but he still totaled seven points, seven rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots.
5 - Svi Mykhailiuk: His 3-pointer broke a tie with 2:34 left and KU led the rest of the way. Is driving much more aggressively and playing under control. Made 2 of 3 3-pointers and contributed eight points. Struggled to contain Dean Wade when he was on him.
6 - Carlton Bragg: Hung tough down low and gave his team a terrific 13-minute boost, particularly in the first half. Scored all of his six points and both of his assists in the first half. If he continues to bring what he did in his return from a three-game suspension, he’ll be a big boost to the bench.
7 - Lagerald Vick: Made just 2 of 7 shots and missed both 3-pointers, but hung tough on the boards with five rebounds in 25 minutes.
8 - Dwight Coleby: Played one minute, blocked a shot and committed a foul.

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) celebrates a bucket and a foul from Iowa State guard Donovan Jackson (4) during the first half, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Frank Mason: Made 9 of 11 shots, 4 of 5 3-pointers and 10 of 12 free throws for a career-high 32 points in 41 minutes. Also had six rebounds, five assists and three turnovers. Didn't make the potential game-winner at end of regulation, but nobody's perfect. He nearly was on this day. At one point, he had made 8 of 8 field goals, 4 of 4 3-pointers and 6 of 6 free throws.

2 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Steadily becoming more aggressive driving to the hoop, he scored 17 points and made 3 of 7 3-pointers.

3 - Landen Lucas: Wasn't able to exploit his size advantage to score and had just six points. Also had career-high 18 rebounds.

4 - Josh Jackson: Had a rough afternoon trying to contain Deonte Burton and had five turnovers, but also contributed 15 points and 10 rebounds for his seventh double-double.

5 - Devonte Graham: Made just 4 of 13 shots and finished with 11 points, three assists, three turnovers and two steals.

6 - Lagerald Vick: Had two dunks en route to an eight-point day in 21 minutes.

Josh Jackson tops ratings vs. Baylor

1 - Josh Jackson: He’s getting better and he was awfully good in the first place. His sixth double-double and second in a row against a top 4 team included 23 points and 10 rebounds. Had two blocked shots in the first half. Pump-fake, drive and two-hand slam broke 64-64 tie and Kansas never trailed.

2 - Frank Mason: Played phenomenal defense at the end and drove to the lane so relentlessly to draw fouls, more than making up for an off shooting night. Made just 3 of 12 shots and 1 of 3 3-pointers, but was 12 for 12 from the line, had four rebounds, three steals, six assists and just two turnovers in 38 minutes. In a word, he’s a winner.

3 - Devonte’ Graham: Strong game on his way to 13 points on 5 of 9 shooting from the field and 3 of 6 from 3-point range.

4 - Landen Lucas: All five of his points came in the second half, as did 7 of 11 rebounds.

5 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 3 of 5 3-pointers and is shooting .423 on the season on them. Scored 11 points and is averaging 10.6.

6 - Mitch Lightfoot: Set up beautifully by Mason for an easy bucket and blocked two shots in a productive five minutes.

7 - Dwight Coleby: Scoreless in six minutes, he was made a couple of defensive mistakes, but he also had six rebounds.

8 - Lagerald Vick: Missed all four shots, including two 3-pointers, in a scoreless 14 minutes.

Josh Jackson tops ratings vs. Kentucky with double-double

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) cuts to the bucket for a shot over Kentucky forward Edrice Adebayo (3) during the second half, Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky. by Nick Krug

1 - Josh Jackson: Started the second half by making back-to-back 3-pointers and had the game's biggest bucket when he ripped away an offensive rebound and put it in late in the game. Had 20 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals with just two turnovers.
2 - Frank Mason: Boldly ventured in among big bodies and made shots over them on his way to a game-high 21 points to go with four assists and two steals.
3 - Landen Lucas: Made 6 of 6 field goals and his only free throw and scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half. Kansas had a 13-point advantage for the 27 minutes Lucas was on the floor before he fouled out.
4 - Devonte' Graham: Had some rough spots here and there and had just one assist and five turnovers, but never stopped playing aggressively and finished with 12 points and seven rebounds.
5 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Totaled eight points and two rebounds and had active hands defensively. Did not turn it over.
6 - Dwight Coleby: For a player who did not get onto the court in 7 of the previous 10 games and played just five minutes during that stretch, he didn't look too rusty. His big body was a factor defensively and he contributed three points, a rebound and a steal in 10 minutes.
7 - Lagerald Vick: The big stage was too much for him in the first half, as he illustrated by dribbling into a tightly guarded, rushed 3-pointer early in the shot clock. He took a seat for a long stretch after that one. Played better in the second half and finished with two points, three rebounds and two steals. Seems to play better defense in a zone when he reacts to the ball instead of trying to figure out how to balance helping and then recovering to his man.
8 - Mitch Lightfoot: Played four minutes, picked up an offensive rebound and put up one shot, which was blocked.

Josh Jackson heats up from 3 and tops ratings in loss at West Virginia

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) delivers a dunk over West Virginia forward Sagaba Konate (50) during the second half, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017 at WVU Coliseum.

Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) delivers a dunk over West Virginia forward Sagaba Konate (50) during the second half, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017 at WVU Coliseum. by Nick Krug

1 - Josh Jackson: It was an atypical Jackson performance in that he made 4 of 4 3-pointers and struggled defensively and on the boards (four rebounds). Did have a trademark dunk when he drove hard down the lane and threw it down hard.

“If he could jump he’d be really good,” West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said of Jackson. “He’s a great athlete. Those are the guys who play 100 games a year for 10 or 12 years. What an athlete. What a great, great athlete.”

2 - Devonte’ Graham: Yet again, he had much more impact in the first half, when he scored 13 of his 17 points. Had four turnovers.

3 - Frank Mason: West Virginia trapped him whenever he touched it and it worked. Made just 6 of 16 shots, scored 15 points and turned it over three times.

4 - Landen Lucas: Limited to 24 minutes by whistle trouble, excuse me, I meant to type “foul,” not “whistle,” honest I did. Scored just two points but had 10 rebounds.

5 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Passive defender made just 2 of 8 3-pointers, but he did a nice job of moving the ball and was not rattled. Had seven assists and one turnover.

6 - Lagerald Vick: Scored five points and had just one rebound in 15 minutes.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Quickly blocked a shot and grabbed an offensive rebound when he first entered but did little else during his eight minutes on the floor.

8 - Carlton Bragg: Made 1 of 4 shots, committed four fouls, turned it over, blocked one shot and had one rebound in 11 minutes.

9 - Dwight Coleby: Trillion club entry with one minute and had zeroes across the board.
