1 - Devonte’ Graham: Outplayed Oklahoma’s Trae Young in more ways than simply outscoring him, 23-13. Graham made 5 of 11 3-pointers and had seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and two turnovers. In leading KU to a 20-4 advantage, Graham totaled nine points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal. Has just one game left in Allen Fieldhouse and is going out in style.

2 - Udoka Azubuike: Drew big praise from coach Bill Self for the way he guarded ball screens. Totaled 10 points, eight rebounds, three blocked shots and three steals. He’s turning into a huge force at both ends.

3 - Malik Newman: Had 20 points, five assists and two steals and looked good handling the ball in transition. Made 4 of 6 3-pointers and 7 of 11 field goals. He’s played with more intensity of late.

4 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Broke his shooting slump in a big way, hitting 4 of 7 3-pointers and finished with 16 points, even rebounds, four assists and a steal and didn’t have any turnovers.

5 - Lagerald Vick: He’s back. Made 3 of 4 3-pointers and finished with 17 points, six rebounds and four assists.

6 - Silvio De Sousa: In nine games before tonight: 22 minutes, five points, seven rebounds, eight personal fouls, six turnovers, zero assists. In 13 minutes in this game: 10 points, six rebounds, one assist, one turnover. Kansas not only won a game, it added a player to the rotation.

7 - Marcus Garrett: His two points came on a put-back, which is a real strength of his. Also had two rebounds and played well defensively in 14 minutes.

8 - Mitch Lightfoot: Blocked three shots in a first-half span of 47 seconds. Other than that, found himself out of position and allowed offensive rebounds and struggled some defensively. Scored four points in seven minutes, but did not get a rebound.

9 - Sam Cunliffe: Showed his athleticism by driving and open lane and throwing down a dunk. Also had a turnover and steal in two minutes.

Silvio getting comfortable last night may have been the biggest highlight of the game.
