Perry Ellis delivers top performance in KU road debut
1 - Perry Ellis: Buried a pair of threes and an 18-footer from the top of the key and drove to the hoop with ease on his way to game-high 20 points. Also had two blocked shots, three assists, three rebounds and five turnovers on his most active night of the season.
2 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Scored eight of KU's points on an 11-0 run that pumped a four-point lead to a 15-point one. Had a three-point shot and three-point play during the stretch and carried team out of a funk. Was whistled for two fouls in the opening two minutes and didn't play the rest of the half. His three-pointer from well behind the top of the key was the biggest shot of the night, giving KU a seven-point lead at the start of the 11-0 run.
3 - Devonté Graham: Has developed into a nice pest to opposing ball handlers and does a nice job of getting to the paint. Totaled 10 points, there rebounds, three assists and two steals.
4 - Frank Mason III: Terrific in the first half and not nearly as good in the final 20 minutes. Scored 10 of his 12 points in the first half, when he knocked down back-to-back three-point shots.
5 - Jamari Traylor: Has made 16 of 20 free throws, including 4 for 4 in this one. Gave a strong defensive effort and hustled his way to six rebounds, four off the offensive glass. Had three steals and a blocked shot.
6 - Brannen Greene: New, mature, unselfish attitude he has shown since coming off a five-game suspension was in full bloom again. Hustled on defense, kept the ball moving on offense, hit the boards hard and produced four points, four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot. In the 26 minutes Greene was on the floor, Kansas outscored San Diego State by 20 points.
7 - Hunter Mickelson: Lent two points, three rebounds and two blocked shots to the cause in eight minutes.
8 - Cheick Diallo: Made a pair of mid-range jumpers and hustled his way to three rebounds and a steal. Also found himself badly out of position.
9 - Carlton Bragg: Would have liked to see him dunk the ball instead of throw it off the glass when he was wide open underneath in the first half. Played six minutes, blocked a shot and had one rebound to go with the easy bucket.
10 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Missed both three-point attempts in seven scoreless minutes and had one assist.
11 - Landen Lucas: Played just two minutes and picked up an offensive rebound.
