Jeff Withey shows he can be go-to scorer against Baylor
1. Jeff Withey: Had a career-high before halftime and pumped it up to 25 points. Received credit for three blocked shots but it would be interesting to see if a study of the video would show he had more. He showed he can be a go-to scorer, which is what he was when Thomas Robinson sat with two fouls and Kansas finished the half on a 14-5 run. Had one assist and six turnovers.
2. Tyshawn Taylor: Again played strong defense, made 4 of 7 three-pointers and finished with 19 points, three assists and three turnovers.
3. Thomas Robinson: Had 15 points, 11 rebounds and five turnovers. Appeared to rattle Perry Jones III into a rough effort (five points, three rebounds in 25 minutes).
4. Conner Teahan: His shot has returned and he used it to score eight points in 22 minutes. Made 3 of 4 field goals and 2 of 3 three-pointers.
5. Elijah Johnson: Still searching for his shot (0 for 6, 0 for 4 from three), Johnson made big contributions in other ways (five assists, one turnover, held Brady Heslip scoreless.)
6. Kevin Young: Set up teammates for buckets and had three assists and three rebounds in 10 scoreless minutes.
7. Travis Releford: Scored his one point late in the game to become KU’s fifth and final scorer.
8. Justin Wesley: Had two rebounds in nine minutes and, of course, three personal fouls.
9. Naadir Tharpe: Did you blink and not catch that he was in the game? You’re not alone.
