Josh Jackson tops ratings vs. Kentucky with double-double
1 - Josh Jackson: Started the second half by making back-to-back 3-pointers and had the game's biggest bucket when he ripped away an offensive rebound and put it in late in the game. Had 20 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals with just two turnovers.
2 - Frank Mason: Boldly ventured in among big bodies and made shots over them on his way to a game-high 21 points to go with four assists and two steals.
3 - Landen Lucas: Made 6 of 6 field goals and his only free throw and scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half. Kansas had a 13-point advantage for the 27 minutes Lucas was on the floor before he fouled out.
4 - Devonte' Graham: Had some rough spots here and there and had just one assist and five turnovers, but never stopped playing aggressively and finished with 12 points and seven rebounds.
5 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Totaled eight points and two rebounds and had active hands defensively. Did not turn it over.
6 - Dwight Coleby: For a player who did not get onto the court in 7 of the previous 10 games and played just five minutes during that stretch, he didn't look too rusty. His big body was a factor defensively and he contributed three points, a rebound and a steal in 10 minutes.
7 - Lagerald Vick: The big stage was too much for him in the first half, as he illustrated by dribbling into a tightly guarded, rushed 3-pointer early in the shot clock. He took a seat for a long stretch after that one. Played better in the second half and finished with two points, three rebounds and two steals. Seems to play better defense in a zone when he reacts to the ball instead of trying to figure out how to balance helping and then recovering to his man.
8 - Mitch Lightfoot: Played four minutes, picked up an offensive rebound and put up one shot, which was blocked.
