Close race between Thomas Robinson, Jeff Withey and Travis Releford for top spot

Advertisement

1. Jeff Withey: Attempted only two field goals on which he didn’t get fouled. Had nine points, eight boards, four blocked shots and altered many, many more.

2. Travis Releford: Hustled his way to 12 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals.

3. Thomas Robinson: Led way with 16 points, eight boards, five assists, four turnovers. Not one of his best, but a solid effort.

4. Kevin Young: Extremely active game for the forward who matches up well against teams without a lot of strength inside. Totaled 10 points, two assists and three steals.

5. Conner Teahan: Made 3 of 5 three-pointers and 2 of 2 free throws. Teahan had 11 points in 18 minutes.

6. Tyshawn Taylor: Had nine points, four assists and four turnovers.

7. Elijah Johnson: Had three assists and a turnover and mixed in six points, a steal and three rebounds.

8. Jordan Juenemann: Public outcry to eliminate walk-ons from the rankings has kept Junemann from making an appearance. But Self revealed after Saturday’s game that he awarded Juenemann with a scholarship for the second semester. He certainly played like a scholarship player in four minutes in this one, scoring seven points, driving hard to the hoop and nailing a three-pointer. He shot 3 for 3.

9. Naadir Tharpe: Played 12 minutes, scored three points, had an assist and two steals, without committing a turnover. After he hit a three-pointer, his man beat him to the lane for a bucket, earning Tharpe a seat. He didn’t let it shake him, though, and played well when he returned.

10. Justin Wesley: Three personal fouls and one rebound in nine minutes.

11. Merv Lindsay: Didn’t make it onto the stat sheet in two minutes.

Public out cry to eliminate walk-ons from the rankings? What?

Kye Clark 7 years ago

Sarcasm perhaps, since there has been outcry to actually include the walk-ons when they get into the games.

But ya never know with Keegan...

They are on the team, so why not rank the guys who play? I wish someone would have the cahonies to rank the refs. It would be nice to know if you are going to get hosed going into the game.

i think you mean seven points not seven minutes

Jesse Newell 7 years ago

Yep. Thanks. Should be fixed now.

I was thinking during the game there were going to be a number of possibles for "Hawk to Rock", since the starters were all putting up similar numbers.

Sure nice to see the 3 point % jump up, and still stay at an acceptacle % of the total shots taken. Best to keep shots in the paint as the first priority.

Pretty good game, Hawks. The starters got some well deserved rest, and the bench got some good court time experience. Especially like Tharpe's numbers, with no turnovers.

Oops. Sorry for the double post. About time to hit the sack.

How about back calculating Jordan's point from when he became a scholarship player? There are at least three games where he played, so he should have at least 3 more points, right?

I hope Merv Lindsay becomes as awesome as the name Merv.

There has got to be a way to minimize the traps on TRob when he is double or even triple teamed down low (where a couple of his turnovers took place). Sometimes I wonder if he is too far down low to get up some of his shots. Nonetheless, TRob, to his credit, is still getting his points and despite the turnovers, how many big men can produce the level of scoring, rebounds, assists, and steals in one game? Also, I liked what TRob did in the second half when on one play, he stole the ball and passed it off to TT who in turn rewarded him with a lob for an alley oop dunk! Unless he is the only option to bring up the ball (which he is capable of doing), he should get it in the hands of TT or EJ and get down court to increase our scoring options, in which he is likely going to be the primary or secondary option anyway.

16 points, 8 boards, 5 assists has become so routine for T-Rob that it puts him at #3 on the Keegan ratings. Let's make sure we don't take him for granted. Remember....we've only got him from 6 to 13 games left in his KU career.

"2. Travis Releford: Hustled his way to 12 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals."

TRel needs to keep that stat line through the rest of the season, makes it harder to double anyone if he's thinking to score. It appears that when he flips the switch to scoring mode he is deadly efficient. I think he just gets so into his defensive role, not saying that is a bad thing, that he forgets he can drive with the best of them.

Not saying the JordanJ is ready for prime time but he showed that he is worthy of a shot to spend 2-5 minutes a half on the floor so others can get a breather. Saturday night did not give a good look at his defense, although he appeared to have decent quickness and speed. If he can't defend that might be why he's spending his time on the bench.

Could he be any more unreliable than Say Connor, Who is a liability on D when that three ball isn't falling./
