The Keegan Ratings

Selden’s aggressiveness puts him atop of ratings on rough night for KU

1 - Wayne Selden Jr.: He didn’t shoot well, 4 for 12, 1 for 4 from three, 0 for 2 from the line, but played more aggressively and with more confidence than most of his teammates. Led Kansas in scoring with nine points and had four rebounds.

2 - Cliff Alexander: Made just 2 of 7 shots and 4 of 8 free throws but battled for five offensive rebounds and eight overall on a night he scored eight points in 20 minutes.

3 - Jamari Traylor: Had trouble getting shots off against Kentucky’s huge front line, and was 0 for 6 from the field. But he also had seven rebounds, three off the offensive glass, and blocked three shots.

4 - Kelly Oubre Jr.: Made his first start and played 13 minutes, time enough to produce six points and four rebounds.

5 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Continues to rush his shot, the most noticeable sign of his youth. But he does not play with fear. Mixed in a steal and an assist on a night he made just 1 of 5 shots, all three-pointers.

6 - Frank Mason III: Looked so small in the lane, surrounded by Kentucky’s giants, and didn’t always know what to do with the ball after picking up his dribble, and usually ended up shooting it. He did not commit any turnovers in 32 minutes and made 1 of 10 shots.

7 - Landen Lucas: Not as long, big or quick as Kentucky’s post players, he didn’t let that strip him of his aggressiveness. Had five rebounds in eight minutes.

8 - Perry Ellis: Had trouble getting his shot off and did nothing to make it difficult for Kentucky’s big men to take aim. Hit just 1 of 6 field goals, contributed only four points and collected a pair of rebounds.

9 - Devonté Graham: Not quite experienced enough to figure out all the challenges playing against Kentucky presents. Played 14 scoreless minutes.

10 - Brannen Greene: Committed three fouls in five scoreless minutes.

11 - Hunter Mickelson: Played just three minutes and did not produce any other statistics.

Mundine, King, Cummings lead passing attack and player ratings

1 - Jimmay Mundine: Every episode "Dancing with the Stars" hopes for the sort of footwork Mundine displayed in making tacklers miss Saturday, the best day of his career. He turned a short gain into a 20-yard reception by stopping and starting, dashing and darting. And that was just a precursor to turning another would-be short gain into a 67-yard reception that set up a touchdown. In all, Mundine caught seven passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. The KU records go back as far as 1974 and his 137 yards are most in that time period for a tight end. The sports information staff is in midst of researching to see if it’s a school record.

2 - Nigel King: Used his height advantage, jumping ability and exceptional powers of concentration to pull a long pass out of the air for a 32-yard gain. Later, after TCU defender tipped a pass intended for him, King tipped it three times, never took his eyes off it and sprinted 78 yards down the right sideline for a touchdown. Finished with 128 yards.

3 - Michael Cummings: His right arm dragging from a sore shoulder, Cummings completed 19 of 37 passes for two touchdowns and 332 yards, the most yards by a KU quarterback since Todd Reesing filled the air with big plays on a routine basis. He lost 21 yards on two sacks, but also rushed for 31 yards in gains. Showed tremendous toughness, shaking off the effects of big hits, including one after he rushed into the end zone.

4 - Tedarian Johnson: Trevone Boykin was evading Keon Stowers and Michael Reynolds with a tremendous scramble, but Johnson brought him to the turf for a 17-yard sack. He muscled his way to five tackles during a strong, strong Senior Day. Plus, he quickly recovered fourth-quarter fumble forced by Victor Simmons, which set up field goal that pulled KU within 34-30. One word best captures Johnson as a football player and it’s not fast or explosive, it’s tough.

5 - JaCorey Shepherd: TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin, every bit as good as advertised, feasts on cornerbacks, throwing over the top of them to complete long passes to receivers. He didn’t do that against KU’s two starting cornerbacks. Shepherd returned his first interception for a touchdown. It was called back for a penalty. His next one came near the goal line.

6 - Dexter McDonald: In tandem with Shepherd, McDonald again left the quarterback with little room to throw it his way. Had a pair of pass breakups.

7 - Ben Heeney: Showed amazing closing speed on his way to an 11-tackle day. Had to be tough for the fans to think that they never again will have the pleasure to watch Heeney administer pain in Memorial Stadium again.

8 - Jake Love: Sacked Boykin for one of his seven tackles. He’ll be back for one more year, a good thing for a KU defense losing most of its top talent.

9 - Michael Reynolds: Had a sack, a quarterback hurry and four tackles on a day TCU was paying extra attention to him.

10 - Victor Simmons: Came up with a huge forced fumble and added a tackle for a loss.

Freshman PG Graham opens season on top of ratings

1 - Devonte Graham: Smooth and under control in transition, Graham used subtle moves to free himself for jumpers, hit them, and penetrated well. When UC Santa Barbara took a 15-14 lead with 7:47 left in the first half, Graham went to work. he nailed a jumper at the free-throw line, set up Brannen Greene for a wide-open three that Greene hit, made a free-throw line jumper set up by a fake pass and then hit an 18-footer, a masterful four-possession, 90-second run during which he scored seven points and had an assist, turning a one-point deficit into an eight-point lead. Graham scored 10 of his team-high 14 points in the first half of his college basketball career.

2 - Perry Ellis: Efficiently produced a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, including 10 boards off the offensive glass. Scored the first bucket of the KU season by dribbling into the lane and executing a spin move.

3 - Cliff Alexander: Scored eight points in eight second-half minutes and finished with nine points in 12 minutes. Hit a pair of mid-range jumpers.

“No, no, no, good shot, Cliff,” Self joked of the shots. “He acted like he knew what he was doing when he took them.”

4 - Jamari Traylor: Played a strong defensive game against UC Santa Barbara All-American candidate Alan Williams, who scored 10 of his game-high 22 points in the final 5:10. Battled hard on the boards against Williams and finished with 10 boards to Williams’ 13.

5 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Moves his feet very well on defense, handles the ball great and is a very smooth athlete. Created play of the night when he skied for a defensive rebound, took it up the court himself, busted his defender with a nasty cross-over dribble and fed Alexander for a thundering dunk.

6 - Frank Mason: Needs to take better care of the ball but did a nice job defensively. Had 12 points, one assist and four turnovers. Hit a three-point jumper early in the game but missed his next two long-range shots.

7 - Wayne Selden: Penetrated well enough to get to the free-throw line, where he made 6 of 9 shots. Shot just 2 of 8 from the field and missed all three three-point attempts.

8 - Brannen Greene: He’ll have some big scoring nights. This just wasn’t one of them. Played 17 minutes and totaled three points, two rebounds and an assist.

9 - Landen Lucas: Treated to a beautiful feed from Greene, he tossed it off the backboard with his left hand for a bucket and in nine minutes added two rebounds, a steal, two fouls and two turnovers.

10 - Hunter Mickelson: Missed a short baseline jumper and blocked a shot in two minutes.

11 - Kelly Oubre: Played four minutes and had an assist and a turnover. He’ll figure out what he needs to do in practice to move up in the rotation, but he’s not there yet.

Victor Simmons and Jacorey Shepherd lead the defense and player ratings

1 - Victor Simmons: Made several big plays to kill ISU threats and finished with five tackles, two sacks for 18 yards in losses, a pass breakup and a forced fumble that he recovered.

2 - JaCorey Shepherd: Had a whopping five pass breakups and continued his stellar senior season by giving the quarterback no window to his man. Outjumped his man for an interception in the end zone.

3 - Corey Avery: Fast, shifty and balanced, Corey Avery bounced his way to the end zone on a 14-yard run for the game’s first touchdown and finished the day with 103 rushing yards, averaged 6.1 yards a carry, and caught a 12-yard pass.

4 - Tony Pierson: Drove the Cyclones defense nuts by using his speed to get to the outside and ran for 101 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry.

5 - Nigel King: Outmuscled and outjumped his man for a catch near the end zone that set up a touchdown.

“That was Nigel being Nigel,” quarterback Michael Cummings said. “He’s an aggressive receiver and a lot of times you don’t see that with guys out on the edge. But when that ball’s in the air, he feels like it’s his and nobody else’s.”

King had five catches for 101 yards.

6 - Jimmay Mundine: Caught six passes for 75 yards and a touchdown, caught balls out of his area, and gained yards after the catch that required creativity and determination on his part.

7 - Michael Cummings: Completed 24 of 40 passes for 278 yards and a touchdown. He missed a stretch of the first half with what he called “a stinger” in his right shoulder. Did not throw an interception and managed an offense that didn’t turn it over once.

8 - Nick Harwell: He runs so smoothly, so efficiently to get open and does the same to gain yards after the catch. Caught five passes for 63 yards.

9 - Dexter McDonald: His man burned him a couple of times but he also made big plays in key spots. Had four pass breakups on a day Kansas had 14.

10 - Michael Reynolds: Picked up his Big 12-leading fifth forced fumble and had a sack among his three tackles.

Harwell’s receiving, Reynolds’ defensive speed put them atop ratings

1 - Nick Harwell: A terrific route runner, Harwell is getting a chance to show his stuff now that Kansas has a better thrower at quarterback. Harwell had five receptions for 79 yards and two touchdowns.

2 - Michael Reynolds: Didn’t come away with a sack but did force a fumble in the backfield and had six tackles, including five solos, one for a loss.

3 - Corey Avery: In the first game with wide receivers coach Eric Kiesau calling the plays, Avery was featured more in the passing game. He had four receptions for 92 yards, but was only able to gain 25 yards on the ground on 11 carries.

4 - Nigel King: Came alive in the second half and finished with four receptions for 68 yards. He knows how to come away with passes that are within reach of defenders.

5 - Ben Heeney: Desperate for a short-yardage back, Kansas turned to Heeney for a carry. As usual, the blocks weren’t there. No gain. Defensively, he contributed 10 tackles, eight solos.

6 - Michael Cummings: Doesn’t have pocket presence or speed to avoid the rush, but when given time to throw can deliver the ball on time and on target. Was thrown to the ground for 28 yards in rushing losses and had trouble hanging onto the ball. Threw the ball well, completing 21 of 30 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns.

7 - Fish Smithson: Showing good nose for the ball again, Smithson had nine tackles, six solos.

8 - Jimmay Mundine: Caught four passes for 31 yards.

9 -Dexter McDonald: Did a decent job in coverage against a team that makes it difficult on cornerbacks.

10 - Tedarian Johnson: Gets the most of his ability and is a strong presence in short-yardage situations at nose tackle.

Of course Ben Heeney leads player ratings at Texas Tech

1 - Ben Heeney: Was all over the field, even more than it showed on the stat sheet and it showed in big, bold numbers. Heeney had 21 tackles, including 17 solo efforts. His 37-yard interception return set Kansas up for its lone first-half score. He has a legitimate shot to earn first-team All-America honors.

2 - Michael Reynolds: He’s finishing his senior year in style. Half of his six tackles resulted in 26 yards in losses, including a 13-yard sack. He also forced a fumble.

3 - Jimmay Mundine: The change at quarterback has brought Mundine to center stage, which for him is the center of the field. He knows how to get open there and is catching everything thrown his way in this his senior season.

4 - JaCorey Shepherd: Does a terrific job of staying with his man, regardless of how tall, fast and physical the receiver is. Quarterbacks don’t throw his way too often.

5 - Corey Avery: Compensated for the loss of Tony Pierson to injury early in the game. Has the speed to turn it upfield and has some grinder in him as well.

6 - Michael Cummings: Completed 20 of 32 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. Had 44 yards in rushing gains, and 24 in losses. Was sacked four times. Threw some nice deepballs

7 - Courtney Arnick: Linebacker developing a nice nose for the ball had four solo tackles, five overall and one for a loss. Undersized but aggressive and blessed with decent speed.

8 - Nigel King: Dropped a beautifully thrown deep pass from Cummings in the first half because one of his hands was occupied shoving the defender. No catch, no flag, no way King was going to let that ruin his day. He made a terrific catch on a jump ball near the end zone to set up a score and finished with 51 receiving yards on two catches.

9 - Justin McCay: Had two tackles and forced a fumble on special teams and caught a 16-yard touchdown pass and totaled two catches for 23 yards.

10 - Nick Harwell:  Caught three balls for 45 yards, including a 37-yard gain in the first half.

Heeney, Shepherd, Reynolds headline KU performers vs. Cowboys

1 - Ben Heeney: Inspired teammates with halftime talk, spent much of the night behind the line of scrimmage, totaled 14 tackles, had a sack, a QB hurry and threw players for 15 yards in losses with 3.5 tackles for loss.

2 - JaCorey Shepherd: Stays with every receiver he covers and is having a terrific senior season. Had two pass breakups and forced OSU to throw in the other direction.

3 - Michael Reynolds: He was always fast. Now he’s fast and tough, focused and determined. Had two sacks for 17 yards, a forced fumble and a quarterback hurry.

4 - Michael Cummings: Only games, not practices, can show what a quarterback has inside of him. Cummings has courage and the confidence to pull the trigger on difficult passes and in this game at least, more accuracy than advertised. He completed 20 of 37 passes, the last of which was intercepted on a bad telegraph, which ended the chance to force overtime. He completed some long ones and showed decisiveness. Kansas lost a game and found a quarterback.

5 - Tevin Shaw: A star running back in high school, the New Jersey native was recruited by former head coach Charlie Weis and arrived not knowing much about the intricacies of playing safety. He has made big strides this season and had a career day Saturday. Shaw blocked a field goal, downed a punt at the 4-yard line and recovered a fumble when most of the players on the field didn’t realize the play was still going.

6 - Nick Harwell: Could have had two touchdowns but dropped one in the end zone and had another thrown way over his head when he was open. Other than that, he had another strong day. He’s been getting open all season and Cummings did a better job of finding him than anyone has all season. Caught seven passes for 91 yards, including a 51-yard reception.

7 - Jimmay Mundine: Found the openings in the defense and finished with five catches for 88 yards.

8 - Jake Love: He gets to the ball quickly, thanks to good speed for a linebacker. Had six tackles.

9 - Nigel King: Big, strong, sure-handed receiver caught three passes for 51 yards.

10 - Corey Avery: Burst through a hole for 23-yard touchdown run that pulled Kansas within 20-17 with 14:13 remaining.

Harwell, Shepherd lead Jayhawks in loss at West Virginia

1 - Nick Harwell: Returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown, a play that symbolized Kansas not giving up on a game it could not at that point win, which sent the Jayhawks with a little momentum going into the coming week of practices.

2 - JaCorey Shepherd broke up three passes, including two in the end zone, and averaged 24.5 yards per kickoff return.

3 - Nigel King: He knows how to get behind the defense and almost always catches what’s thrown in his area. Had four receptions for 52 yards and would have had a more productive day had he not been overthrown repeatedly.

4 - Isaiah Johnson: Picked off a pass at the goal line and returned it 29 yards. Also had team-high nine tackles.

5 - Ben Heeney: Two of his six tackles came behind the line of scrimmage for nine yards in losses.

6 - Cassius Sendish: Missed a tackle at the line of scrimmage on a reverse that went for a big gain, but also made some big tackles. 

7 - Dexter McDonald: Had the difficult assignment of staying with Kevin White and for the most part did a solid job. White earned his 132 receiving yards and one touchdown. White came into the game averaging 158 yards a game in receptions. McDonald had eight tackles and broke up one pass.

8 - Justin McCay: Recovered a muffed punt, which set up team’s lone touchdown. Also hustled his way to big hits on special teams.

9 - Corey Avery: Broke a scoring drought of six-plus quarters with a 4-yard touchdown run and finished with 58 rushing yards.

10 - Michael Cummings: Not an extremely accurate passer, Cummings took over at the start of the second half and the offense moved a little better with him in there. Didn’t always hit open targets, but he spotted them better than starter Montell Cozart and did a better job of knowing where to go with the ball.

Heeney brings it (as usual) vs. Longhorns

1 - Ben Heeney: He ran down player after player and used all that momentum to bury the guy with the ball because that’s what he always does. Sometimes bad football teams have a great player and this one does. Heeney had 10 tackles, nine of the solo variety, 1.5 tackles for losses, a fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry. He plays with speed, passion and toughness.

2 - Andrew Bolton: It looks as if Kansas has a good one in the junior defensive tackle. He has adjusted to the speed of the game after a junior-college career shortened by a knee injury. Bolton made his presence felt in a variety of ways, often in the Texas backfield. He had five tackles, a half a sack, 1.5 tackles for losses, batted a pass and forced a fumble.

3 - Michael Reynolds: He had a sack, two tackles for losses and a quarterback hurry and looked quick doing it. UT has serious problems at tackle and Reynolds exposed them.

4 - Cassius Sendish: The next time a QB runs the option, watch Sendish running horizontally and then watch his burst of acceleration when the QB pitches the ball to the back. Impressive. Had four tackles.

5 - Jake Love: Made his five tackles count and did a nice job of getting into the face of the quarterback.  

6 - Dexter McDonald: Had four tackles and ripped a ball for a forced fumble.

7 - De’Andre Mann: Ran hard again and had 83 yards on 17 carries to show for it (4.9 yards per carry).

8 - Nick Harwell: Crisp route runner was rewarded more than usual for getting open. Made five catches for 39 yards.

9 - Trevor Pardula: Pinned four of his six punts inside the 20 and averaged 41.3 yards.

10 - Corey Avery: Averaged 4.9 yards on eight carries. In the early stages of what should be a terrific career.

Jake Love breaks out against Central Michigan

1. Jake Love -- Monster day from the oft-overlooked linebacker. Five tackles, four for loss, one sack and two huge plays late in the game to end the CMU threat. "Really big plays that changed the momentum," teammate Michael Reynolds said. "Took the air right out of them."

2. Tony Pierson -- Preventing the first half offense from being completely worthless, Pierson streaked down the left sideline for 74-yard TD run on first snap. He finished with 89 total yards and sported stylish glasses after the game.

3. Michael Reynolds -- Picked up his first sack of the season with a big-time move off the edge that also allowed him to force a fumble. Finished with three tackles in the run game, as well. 

4. JaCorey Shepherd -- Cornerback made a highlight-reel interception, going horizontal near the sideline, to seal the game and also showed good toughness and solid skills in the return game. Five tackles, one interception and one pass break-up

5. Justin McCay -- One week after being praised for blocking and physical play, McCay stood out for his production. Two receptions for 66 yards, including a huge 60-yard TD that proved to be the game-winner. 

6. Jimmay Mundine -- Had six catches for 67 yards and kept the chains moving all day. 

7. Montell Cozart -- Made the throws he had to make and looked much better running the offense overall. Passed up running opportunities in the first half, but did a better job with that the second half. Staying mostly with short passes, Cozart completed 22 of 33 with 226 yards and two touchdowns. He was sacked once and threw one interception on a play in which the football was rocked loose from Tony Pierson and caught by a Chippewa before it fell to the ground.

8. Ben Heeney -- Ho, hum, seven tackles, forced fumble, a QB hurry and two tackles for loss — all kinds of energy. Just another day at the office for Captain Heeney.

9. Corey Avery -- Carried 11 times for 37 tough yards and added two receptions for 34 yards, including a 30-yard TD that sealed the deal. 

10. Pat Lewandowski -- Made the key block that enabled Avery to turn a screen pass into a 30-yard TD. "That whole play is dependent on the tackle getting a block on the second level, the whole play. When he got in the way, we scored, it's a two-score game and the game is basically over,” Weis said.
