Tarik Black top Jayhawk in season finale
1 - Tarik Black: Lone senior played an outstanding game, doing everything he could to bring his team to his hometown of Memphis for the South regional, but didn’t get enough help to make it happen. Had 18 points and six rebounds in 26 minutes before fouling out.
2 - Conner Frankamp: Scored 12 points, six in the first half, six in the second, all on three-pointers. He made two threes in the final 3:34 of the first half, plus had a rebound and a steal in that stretch. He added two threes in the final 25 seconds of the second half, but was guarded too tightly to get anything resembling a good look and forced one up to try to tie the score. Increased his single-game career-high in both games of the tournament.
3 - Perry Ellis: Missed some easy shots on his way to a nine-point, eight-rebound effort. Had three turnovers and made just 3 of 10 shots.
4 - Frank Mason: Defended well and contributed two rebounds, two assists and a steal, but couldn’t get his shots to drop, going 0 for 4 from the floor, 0 for 3 from three and 2 for 2 from the line.
5 - Wayne Selden: Had three steals, but made just 1 of 5 shots and picked up four personal fouls in 18 minutes of action. Outside shot needs work.
6 - Naadir Tharpe: Had five points, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes. Will face a tough challenge from Frankamp and Mason in competing to keep his starting job at point guard.
7 - Jamari Traylor: Played well when Kansas applied full-court pressure and picked up two steals. But he also turned it over three times and made just 1 of 8 shots. Had five rebounds.
8 - Andrew Wiggins: Rough swan song for the freshman, who played tight. Limited to four points, four rebounds and two assists, Wiggins faced a defense that took away his driving lanes. Even when he did get to the hoop, he couldn’t finish and he couldn’t get his perimeter jumpers to fall.
9 - Landen Lucas: Threw down a dunk during his two minutes on floor.
10 - Brannen Greene: Played three minutes.
