South Korea Selden returns to lead KU to Maui title
1 - Wayne Selden: MVP of the World University Games was MVP of the Maui Invitational. Junior guard matched career high with 25 points and only blemish of the evening came when he missed four consecutive free throws in the final minute of action. Had seven rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot, did not turn it over once and was not whistled for a single foul. Selden made 8 of 11 shots from the field and 4 of 6 from three. For the tourney, he made 12 of 17 threes and has made 17 of 29 for the season.
2 - Devonte Graham: Completed terrific tournament by producing 12 points and six rebounds and in the second half ensured that Kansas ended up with good shots.
3 - Frank Mason: As did Graham, he turned it over just once. Forced a couple of shots on drives, but put a lot of pressure on the defense and totaled 10 points, five rebounds and three assists.
4 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Seven-point effort included a couple of dirving shots kissed softly off the glass. Played most confident basketball of his Kansas career during the tournament.
5 - Perry Ellis: Had trouble getting shots off and rushed others against Vandy’s long post defenders and made just 1 of 8 field-goal attempts and turned it over three times. Contributed eight rebounds and had huge offensive board with Kansas protecting six-point lead with minute-and-a-half left.
6 - Carlton Bragg: Great extra pass when double-teamed in post to feed Jamari Traylor showed some of his better qualities: Skilled passer, quick decision-maker, comfortable under durress. Better equipped to handle exceptional length of Vanderbilt defenders than was Ellis.
7 - Jamari Traylor: Three points, fourrebounds, two fouls, two turnovers.
8 - Landen Lucas: Four points, four rebounds and three personal fouls.
9 - Hunter Mickelson: Had a point, rebound and assist in limited action.
