Marcus takes top Keegan honor for 7th time this season
1. Marcus Morris: Limited to just 20 minutes because of foul trouble, he struggled early defensively and in keeping Aggies off the offensive boards, but he made several big plays, especially in the final four minutes, to lead KU to its 11th consecutive victory.
2. Cole Aldrich: Didn't keep the Aggies off the offensive boards, but still finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five blocked shots and two steals.
3. Xavier Henry: Continues to play more aggressively and was rewarded with 35 minutes. Totaled 12 points and six rebounds.
4. Markieff Morris: Totaled nine points, six rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes.
5. Tyshawn Taylor: Has missed all five three-point attempts in the past two games, but otherwise has played better.
6. Brady Morningstar: Had five assists, four rebounds and a steal, but did not score, missing both field goal attempts and both free throw attempts.
7. Tyrel Reed: Hit a big three during an otherwise quiet night.
8. Sherron Collins: First blocked shot of the season didn't put the slumping shooter in a bragging mood. Has hit just 24 percent of his three-pointers in the past eight games.
9. Jeff Withey: Played just one minute.
10. Thomas Robinson: Played less than a minute and had a turnover. Has 23 turnovers in 200 minutes. Averages 14.6 rebounds and 4.6 turnovers per 40 minutes.
