Kelly Oubre asserts himself, leads Jayhawks vs. Sooners
1 - Kelly Oubre Jr.: He made two of the three-pointers when KU came out on fire making all eight of its first three-pointers. Was even better late in the game, attacking the glass and driving to the hoop for several key plays.
2 - Cliff Alexander: Motivated by a second-half benching in Ames, Iowa, Alexander predictably delivered a huge game with 13 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, and a blocked shot. He also took a charge.
3 - Perry Ellis: Started the game on fire and produced 16 points, eight rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes.
4 - Brannen Greene: Had a pair of season firsts, his first missed free throw (he's made 18 of 19) and his first steal (he has played 237 minutes). And, oh yeah, he hit the biggest shot of the game, a three-pointer with 3:24 left, which brought KU from behind and the team never trailed after it. Also hit a long two. Scored 12 points in 15 minutes, made 4 of 6 shots and hit 3 of 3 threes.
5 - Frank Mason III: Didn't get the team playing at a fast enough pace at times, but was his clutch self in the stretch run and finished with 10 points, four assists, three rebounds and a steal and turned it over just twice.
6 - Devonte Graham: Had some rough patches defensively, but also hit 2 of 3 threes and totaled six points, four assists and had just one turnover in 15 minutes.
7 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Delivered a phenomenal no-look pass to Cliff Alexander in the first half and made Buddy Hield work hard for his shots at times, but continued to have trouble finishing drives and made 2 of 9 field goals, including 1 of 3 threes.
8 - Jamari Traylor: Played with a hip Bill Self said he hurt about a week ago and did not let the coaching staff know until after the game it was bothering him. Played 23 minutes without getting a rebound, scored four points, blocked two shots and had a steal.
