Devonte' Graham tops ratings again in big road victory vs. TCU
1 - Devonte' Graham: Never looks tired, despite consistently logging huge minutes and playing at such a fast pace. Made sure Kansas never lapsed into passive mode and won the game at the free-throw line, where he made 13 of 15 shots, and beyond the 3-point arc, where made 3 of 6. Totaled 28 points, six assists, three rebounds and three steals and turned it over three times.
2 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Played aggressively, shot and passed well and finished with 20 points, four rebounds and six assists and turned it over just once. Made 5 of 7 3-pointers and played well in both halves.
3 - Mitch Lightfoot: Had a huge block of a Jaylen Fisher 3-point attempt with 32 seconds left, his sixth block of the night to go with nine points and seven rebounds. Made 1 of 2 3-pointers and made his career-high 26 minutes count.
4 - Udoka Azubuike: Had more points (14) than minutes played (13). TCU was happy to see him foul out because the Horned Frogs didn't have anyone who could keep him from scoring.
5 - Marcus Garrett: Had a strong first half, particularly defensively, and totaled four points, six rebounds and two assists.
6 - Lagerald Vick: Played better than he did against Texas Tech, but not up to the standards he set with strong early season play. It was neither his most tidy nor most aggressive performance. He did make 3 of 4 field goals and both 3-point attempts, but also had three turnovers and just three rebounds on a night he didn't have a single assist. Limited by foul trouble to 26 minutes.
7 - Sam Cunliffe: Scored four points and committed three fouls in 11 minutes.
8 - Malik Newman: Scored in double figures in each of his first six games and only 3 of 9 since. Was not playing well in the starting lineup and has been less effective since coming off the bench. Played 15 minutes, scored one point and didn't contribute a rebound or an assist and had one turnover and four personal fouls.
