Perry Ellis establishes assertive offense for Kansas in rout
1 - Perry Ellis: Made 9 of 11 shots, drove the ball aggressively, using his superior quickness to get to the hoop and made his lone three-point shot attempt. Ellis scored a game-high 20 points and had four rebounds and four assists.
2 - Frank Mason III: Knew when to pull up and shoot, and when to drive to the hoop. Made great decisions all night, did a terrific job of keeping Isaiah Taylor from scoring (five points, 1 of 10 shots, one assist) and from breaking down the defense to set up teammates. Mason made 5 of 6 shots and all three three-point shots.
3 - Devonté Graham: Played aggressively at both ends and contributed 13 points, seven rebounds and two steals, but also turned it over four times. Graham made 4 of 6 field goals and 3 of 4 three-pointers.
4 - Landen Lucas: Set the defensive tone early, picking up three of his five blocked shots during the 15-0 start to the game. He also had eight points and eight rebounds. He’s played so well the second half of the season. Amazing improvement.
5 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Shot looked better and he made 2 of 5 three-pointers on his way to a nine-point night.
6 - Jamari Traylor: Quick, somebody check to see if he has landed yet from that lob he threw down. It’s not often players soar that high during a game. Wow! Scored eight points and defended well in 15 minutes, but didn’t have a rebound.
7 - Brannen Greene: Productive 11-minute effort. He totaled five points and four rebounds.
8 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Had three fouls, two points and two assists in 13 minutes.
9 - Carlton Bragg: Fought as hard on the floor for a loose ball as a player can fight. Also picked up two rebounds, two fouls, an assist and a steal.
10 - Hunter Mickelson: In four minutes, came away with a pair of rebounds and a fluid late-game dunk. Also missed a pair of free throws.
11 - Lagerald Vick: Played three minutes and made his only shot, a three-pointer, naturally.
12 - Cheick Diallo: Played three minutes and made 2 of 4 free throws.
