KU's big men gravitate to top of Keegans
1. Marcus Morris: Averaging 17.8 points and 8.5 boards in Big 12 play after 20-point, 11-rebound effort.
2. Sherron Collins: Got into verbal spat with Nebraska’s Sek Henry in the layup line, which was all he needed to play with that nasty edge. He made 4 of 6 three-pointers and totaled 17 points and six assists.
3. Cole Aldrich: Sat out most of first half after getting whistled for second foul. Finished with eight points, six boards, four blocked shots, two assists and a steal.
4. Jeff Withey: The 7-foot freshman can play. For a guy who seldom gets in he plays with a lot of confidence. He’s a natural shot-blocker, moves well, has soft hands and looks like a confident offensive player. Had four points, six boards and two blocked shots.
5. Markieff Morris: Had nine points and three blocked shots in nine minutes.
6. Brady Morningstar: Had a huge steal that prevented a bucket down low and had four assists but went scoreless.
7. Tyshawn Taylor: Had four points, three assists and a steal in 22 minutes.
8. Tyrel Reed: He always plays hard and shoots soft. Scored just two points but had two assists and as usual did not turn over the ball.
9. Xavier Henry: Too eager to shoot, too quick to turn it over. Made 3 of 9 field goals and had four turnovers.
10. Thomas Robinson: Had three fouls and a turnover in six minutes, but did score a bucket.
