1. Tyrel Reed: Hit a huge three-pointer to put Kansas up by eight with 7:40 left and in doing so became the team’s first player in double figures. Reed also opened the game with a three and made 3 of 5 threes on the night and scored 12 points with four steals.
2. Brady Morningstar: Followed Reed’s three with one of his own to push the lead to nine points, which is more like 15 against the offensively challenged Aggies. Hit 3 of 3 field goals, both three-pointers and scored nine points with four assists, four steals and not a single turnover.
3. Marcus Morris: Had 13 points, five boards, two assists and two blocked shots. Attacked patiently against a very good defensive front line.
4. Markieff Morris: Again had a similar statistical night as his brother, totaling 13 points, five rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots.
5. Elijah Johnson: Charged with three turnovers, but also came up with two steals on a night he played solid defense and did a nice job of keeping the ball moving. Had three assists. Played better than his stats and juiced the crowd throwing down a lob from Marcus Morris and blocking a shot shortly after that.
6. Tyshawn Taylor: Played well early and finished with nine points, three assists and a steal. Turned it over twice. Cheered hard for Johnson, showing there is no issue there, not that there is any reason to suspect there would be an issue.
7. Thomas Robinson: Couldn’t get anything to fall, but as always, he hit the boards hard, picking up five in 11 minutes.
8. Josh Selby: Scored six points in 12 minutes.
9. Mario Little: Misfired on all five shot attempts, including three three-pointers.
10. Royce Woolridge: Won the coin toss to get ranked 10th after less than a half-minute of action.
11. Jeff Withey: Lost the coin toss after less than half-minute of action.
