Perry Ellis shows off his 3-point skills vs. Wildcats
1 - Perry Ellis: Senior is shooting 50 percent from three after going 3 for 3 on his way to a 19-point game. Had two steals and five rebounds. Made 8 of 11 shots from the field.
2 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Forgotten man had a night to remember with 10 points, four assists and three steals in 21 minutes off the bench. Good chance he’ll get big minutes again Saturday at TCU.
3 - Jamari Traylor: Totaled five points, four rebounds and two blocked shots and a steal in 13 minutes.
4 - Landen Lucas: Had eight points, six rebounds and played 25 minutes before fouling out.
5 - Devonté Graham: Made K-State play sloppy and had three steals. Made just 1 of 4 three-pointers and totaled 10 points, three rebounds and four assists. Turned it over twice.
6 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Failed to follow up phenomenal game vs. Kentucky with a good one. Played 24 minutes, made 1 of 5 three-point shots and 3 of 9 field goals. Totaled seven points, no rebounds and three turnovers. Some of his shots were ill-advised.
7 - Frank Mason III: His drives to the hoop sometimes amount to driving a bridge to nowhere. Opponents don’t foul him as often as in the past and he gets caught without an easy play. Made 1 of 5 shots.
8 - Brannen Greene: Shot 3 of 3 from the field, 1 of 1 from three, 1 of 1 from the free-throw line and did not turn it over on a night he scored eight points in six minutes.
Yet, as far as the coach was concerned, Greene had the most obnoxious night of anyone in the building. (Then again, the coach had no way of knowing about the woman who stood behind me the whole game screeching unbelievably loudly in my ear all night, damaging my hearing). Any way, back to Greene. He dunk with one second remaining, instead of dribbling out the clock, which absolutely infuriated his coach, who spent the rest of the night apologizing for it.
9 - Carlton Bragg: Scored two points, blocked a shot and had a turnover in five minutes.
10 - Cheick Diallo: Played two minutes in the first half.
