Svi Mykhailiuk's shooting highlights KU victory over Tech
1 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Missed his final shot when a drive trickled out. Otherwise he would have had a perfect shooting day. He made 6 of 7 shots, including 5 of 5 three-pointers. His pull-up jumper inside the semi-circle reeked of confidence. Looks more sure of himself than ever. All in all, not bad for an 18-year-old basketball player.
2 - Frank Mason III: Hustled down a loose ball to keep it from going out of bounds and made the pass that was available, a behind-the-back beauty to Devonté Graham, who fed Wayne Selden Jr., who completed the play with a reverse layup. Also made 3 of 5 three-pointers on way to 16-point, two-steal day.
3 - Jamari Traylor: Made play of the day when he ripped away offensive rebound on missed free throw and immediately fed Svi for a three. Produced three points, three rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot in 13 energetic minutes off the bench.
4 - Devonté Graham: Four assists against just one turnover and two steals compensated for off day from three (1 for 4). Showed serious quickness in finishing drive to hoop through traffic.
5 - Landen Lucas: Produced seven points and eight rebounds in 20 minutes.
6 - Cheick Diallo: Hustled his way to two points, six rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal in 13 minutes.
7 - Perry Ellis: Couldn’t get shots to drop (4 of 13) and scored just eight points with five boards in 28 minutes.
8 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Slumping shooters go through phases that leave them aiming instead of shooting. Selden’s in one of those phases. He made 1 of 8 field goals, 1 of 4 free throws and missed all four three-point attempts. Didn’t show great shot selection in this one.
9 - Carlton Bragg: Turned beautiful post feed from Brannen Greene into two points and picked up a rebound in five-minute run.
10 - Brannen Greene: Limited to three minutes, he made the only two shots he took, both free throws.
