Devonté Graham's big night not enough for Kansas vs. Villanova
1 - Devonté Graham: Led team with 17 points and added seven rebounds. Made 5 of 9 three-pointers and the rest of the team made 1 of 13. Villanova did a terrific job of taking away KU’s favorite ways of feeding Ellis and Graham did not have any assists and had three turnovers.
2 - Landen Lucas: Had to play 35 minutes because when he sat Villanova immediately fed Daniel Ochefu for easy buckets. As always, Lucas dominated the defensive boards, picking up 11 of his 12 at that end. Made 3 of 3 field goals and had two assists.
3 - Frank Mason III: Played all 40 minutes and scored five points in a 12-second stretch of the final half-minute. Pump-faked Ryan Arcidiacono into the air and hit a three-pointer with 27 seconds left and contorted his body for a layup with 15 seconds left to pull Kansas within one. Finished with 16 points.
4 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Had 16 points but went 0 for 6 from three and tended to be long with his shot.
5 - Perry Ellis: Made 1 of 5 shots, scored a season-low four points and turned it over four times.
6 - Carlton Bragg: Had a nice post feed to Landen Lucas, turned it over once and did not take a shot or get a rebound.
7 - Jamari Traylor: Scoreless with two fouls and a turnover in five minutes. Gave up buckets to Ochefu on consecutive possessions in the first half and quickly was taken out.
8 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Missed his only shot, a three-pointer from the left corner, and committed a foul during his scoreless seven-minute stretch.
