Josh Jackson tops ratings vs. Michigan State
1 - Josh Jackson: Scored 14 of his 23 points in a second-half highlight show that featured a big step-back 3-pointer and a one-handed jam that punctuated a quick drive down the lane. Is 4 of 4 from the free-throw line during the tournament. Spent a lot of time above the rim at both ends and was credited with two blocked shots and two steals, although a review of the game video might reveal more than that in both categories.
2 - Frank Mason: When nothing else works, it's nice for Kansas to know that Mason can always get to the lane and then the free-throw line, where he made 8 of 8 free throws. Heading into the postseason, Mason said he didn't see why Kansas couldn't shoot 80 percent from the line. So far KU is 31 of 35, 89 percent. Mason had 20 points, five assists and three steals and did not commit a turnover.
3 - Devonte' Graham: Just as easily could be ranked No. 1 on this list. Made four 3-point shots for the second game in a row, scored 18 points and had four assists and four steals. Made great passes in transition and in the half-court.
4 - Landen Lucas: Battled foul trouble, so he was limited to 25 minutes, enough time to produce a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Made a couple of nice hook shots.
5 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Solid with nine points, three rebounds and three assists without a turnover. Finished a nice lob from Graham for a flush in transition.
6 - Dwight Coleby: Kept Lucas' foul trouble from hurting Kansas. Entered in the second half and delivered three points, four rebounds and a steal. Had two huge offensive rebounds.
7 - Lagerald Vick: Had seven points and five rebounds, but needs to do a better job of recovering to his man behind the 3-point line.
8 - Carlton Bragg: Not his night. At all. Missed both shots, including a very easy one on an offensive rebound. Committed three fouls in five minutes.
9 - Mitch Lightfoot: Played in the final minute.
