Kansas guard Lagerald Vick (2) goes to the bucket against Texas Southern guard Robert Lewis (33) during the second half, Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Lagerald Vick: Uses great court vision to put passes on the money, jumps quicker and higher than anybody on the team, soft shooting touch extends well beyond 3-point line and in some ways he is beginning to resemble a three-inches-shorter version of Scottie Pippen. Made 3 of 4 3-pointers on way to 19 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.

2 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 5 of 7 3-pointers to improve his season long-distance percentage to .533 and led six scorers in double figures with 21 points.

3 - Devonte' Graham: Had 11 assists, one turnover and four steals to go with 17 points and six rebounds. Made 6 of 16 shots and 3 of 8 3-pointers.

4 - Marcus Garrett: Quietly worked his way to a 13-point, 11-rebound night with three assists and two blocked shots and didn't have a turnover.

5 - Udoka Azubuike: Showed good stamina while hustling his way to 20 points and nine rebounds in 27 minutes, playing to a virtual stalemate with the taller, slimmer Trayvon Reed (19 points, 14 rebounds and four blocked shots).

6 - Malik Newman: Made 4 of 6 3-point shots and finished with 12 points, four rebounds, three assists and two turnovers.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Had 10 points and four blocked shots but just three rebounds, just one off the defensive glass. One of six Jayhawks to make a 3-pointer.

Svi tops ratings with career-high 27 points vs. South Dakota State

Kansas guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10) goes to the bucket against South Dakota State guard Lane Severyn (25) during the second half on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10) goes to the bucket against South Dakota State guard Lane Severyn (25) during the second half on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Senior delivered a career-high 27 points, didn't commit a turnover, stole the ball four times, had five defensive rebounds and made 10 of 17 shots, including 5 of 7 3-pointers. Team needs more aggressiveness out of him and that's exactly what he's delivering. Leads team with 19.7 points per game.

2 - Lagerald Vick: Attempted just 12 field goals and had 22 points, seven rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot and didn't turn it over once. Made 9 fo 12 shots and 3 of 6 3-pointers. Coach Bill Self said he thinks Vick has the potential to develop into a defensive stopper but has not yet embraced that mentality. Averaging 18 points a game.

3 - Devonte' Graham: Didn't shoot well and forced one or two shots but otherwise played well, delivering on-the-money pass after pass. Had 11 assists and just one turnover.

4 - Udoka Azubuike: Bit on a shot fake from a guard under the basket, left his feet and fouled him on the way down for his second foul of the first half, which earned him a spot on the bench. Played just 23 minutes and had just two rebounds, but otherwise played well. Made 8 of 9 shots and unveiled an up-and-under move that looked pretty smooth.

5 - Malik Newman: Phog Allen used to say that he judged a player largely by what he did when he didn't have the ball in his hands. Self subscribes to the same philosophy. By that measure, Newman hasn't immersed himself into the Kansas basketball culture yet, but he did shoot well. Newman made 4 of 7 field goals, 2 of 4 3-pointers and scored 13 points. He also had two assists but did not pick up a rebound after totaling nine against Kentucky.

6 - Marcus Garrett: Had seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and a blocked shot and didn't commit a turnover. Had a defensive lapse or two, not getting to 3-point shooters in time, and made just 1 of 5 shots and went 0 for 3 from 3.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: He knows how to block shots and had four in this game, but at this point, it's fair to ask whether his shot-blocking instinct is more of a blessing or a curse because as Self pointed out during post-game interviews, he tries to block everything, bites on shot fakes and that's where many of his fouls originate. He fouled out in seven minutes, a very active seven minutes in which he totaled two points, three rebounds and two turnovers.

Svi tops ratings in Champions Classic victory against Kentucky

Kansas guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10) delivers a breakaway dunk before Kentucky forward Wenyen Gabriel (32) during the second half on Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017 at United Center.

1 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Threw some nice post feeds to the big man, had three assists, turned it over just once and led team with 17 points and a steal. Took a bad shot late that was way short but in general most of his aggressiveness was productive.

2 - Udoka Azubuike: With Billy Preston out of the lineup, Jayhawks needed the big man to stay out of foul trouble and play big minutes. He gave them what they needed and played a career-high 34 minutes with one first-half foul and three for the night. Made all five of his shots and just 3 of 8 free throws. Blocked two shots and was missed when he rested. Kentucky outscored KU by six points with Udoka on the bench and held a 10-point advantage with him on the floor.

3 - Lagerald Vick: Threw the pass of the night, hitting Svi on a fly pattern for a huge second-half breakaway dunk. Did a nice job of feeding the post and started the game off doing a lot of things well, but couldn't get his shots to drop as the game wore on. He made just 4 of 13 shots and 1 or 4 3-pointers, but did a nice job on the boards, 4 of 6 coming off the offensive glass and had five assists and just one turnover to go with three steals. Still needs to be more attentive about running at 3-point shooters, although better at that than in the past.

4 - Malik Newman: Drove into too many blocked shots when it wasn't always the best play, shot just 4 of 14, but also had nine boards and three steals. Finished strong, hitting a 3-pointer with 2:10 left and then grabbing a defensive rebound with 20 seconds left and a two-point lead. Stretched the lead to four points by making both free throws with 17 seconds remaining.

5 - Devonte' Graham: Forced it a little offensively when team couldn't get anything going and as a result had five turnovers to go with five assists. Made just 3 or 14 shots and 1 of 6 3-pointers. Made 4 of 5 free throws, including both with seven seconds remaining for the game's final points.

6 - Marcus Garrett: Freshman hit a 3-pointer to put Kansas up two with 15:05 left and contributed three points, an assist (two turnovers) and two steals to the victory.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Tough matchup at this stage of his career. Kentucky made his man focal point of offense when he was on floor for six minutes. Went scoreless with one foul but did pick up key steal with 2:53 left.

1 - Evan Fairs: Talented sophomore caught seven passes for 104 yards. Steadily improving, a potential force.

2 - Keith Loneker: Followed his huge 2016 game vs. Texas with another strong effort. Had eight solo tackles, including two sacks, and two assists. Plays with a lot of passion.

3 - Daniel Wise: Despite receiving special attention from the offensive line managed to get credited with 1.5 TFLs and was in on five tackles.

4 - Steven Sims: Nine receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown.

5 - Osaze Ogbebor: Steadily improving linebacker had a sack, one of his four solo tackles.

6 - Carter Stanley: Took several punishing hits and kept bouncing back up. Threw three first-half interceptions but also completed 27 of 43 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns.

7 - Chase Harrell: Scored the game’s final touchdown with 11 seconds remaining on an 18-yard reception and also had a 7-yard reception.

8 - Hasan Defense: Burned early he gave the offense a great opportunity late with a 10-yard interception return.

9 - Kerr Johnson: Recovered a fumbled kickoff and had a 29-yard reception.

10 - Earl Bostick: True freshman tight end did nice job of staying in bounds for 5-yard TD catch in back of end zone.

Devonte’ Graham tops ratings in season-opener

Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4), Kansas guard Lagerald Vick (2) and the Kansas bench celebrate a bucket from Clay Young during the second half on Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Devonte' Graham: Whistled a beauty of a no-look, one-handed pass off the dribble from mid-court to Svi Mykhailiuk under the hoop for the most memorable of his 12 assists. Also had 10 points and fell three rebounds shy of a triple-double. Didn't score a point in the second half and still was the most influential player on the floor. Primed for a terrific senior year.

2 - Lagerald Vick: Made some really nice plays, scoring and passing, during his time playing in the middle of Tennessee State's zone. Made 4 of 7 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 23 points and had five rebounds, three assists and a steal. Needs to cut down on turnovers (four).

3 - Marcus Garrett: Started in place of Malik Newman and didn't look the least bit out of place in contributing 10 pounds and 10 rebounds. Had just one of KU's 20 turnovers.

4 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 3 of 6 3-pointers and totaled 15 points and five rebounds.

5 - Udoka Azubuike: Played 30 minutes and showed the wear and tear of that in the second half. Still holds the ball too long in the post when a scoring opportunity doesn't present itself, but he's a load to try to defend. Totaled 13 points, six rebound and two blocked shots.

6 - Malik Newman: Getting bumped from the starting lineup seemed to elicit the intended response. Newman brought fire off the bench, hitting the first shot of his Kansas career, a 3-pointer from the right corner, and following that up with a hard, under-control drive to the hoop in transition for two more points. Rest of night didn't always go as smoothly, but he did contribute 12 points, four rebounds and a blocked shot to go with four turnovers.

7 -Mitch Lightfoot: Had six points, five boards, three blocked shots, a steal, four turnovers and four personal fouls. He makes mistakes, but they're always mistakes of aggression.

1 - Joe Dineen: Big 12’s leader in tackles for loss added four to his total, one a sack, and had 10 solo tackles and one assist.

2 - Khalil Herbert: Slowed in midseason by a hamstring injury, he appeared to be back in shape and busted a 43 yard run and finished with 71 yards on 10 carries.

3 - Gabriel Rui: Missed his first field-goal attempt, from 48 yards, but made his next three from distances of 38, 40 and 43 for KU’s only points.

4 - Steven Sims: Targeted 14 times, Sims caught seven passes for 42 yards. Was able to find pockets in Baylor’s defense to make himself available, but many of the throws to him were off the mark. Averaged 26 yards on six kick returns.

5 - Tyrone Miller: Had a TFL and a pass breakup among five tackles (four solo).

6 - Dorance Armstrong: One of his three tackles came behind the line.

7 - Daniel Wise: In on three tackles and, as always, occupied multiple blockers.

8 - Evan Fairs: The 6-foot-3, 185-pound sophomore from Fulshears, Texas, caught two passes for 40 yards, one a 36-yard gain.

9 - Taylor Martin: Rushed for 26 yards on three carries, one that went for 13 yards.

10 - Cole Moos: Averaged 41.2 yards on four punts and ran for 11 yards for a first down on a fake punt.

Steven Sims tops ratings with 233 receiving yards in 30-20 loss to Kansas State

Kansas wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. (11) pulls in a deep touchdown catch during the fourth quarter on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017 at Memorial Stadium.

Kansas wide receiver Steven Sims Jr. (11) pulls in a deep touchdown catch during the fourth quarter on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017 at Memorial Stadium. by Nick Krug

1 - Steven Sims: Had a career day, which is saying something because the junior has had a terrific career. Nine catches for 233 yards and a touchdown. Made circus catch on sideline when tightly covered and managed to land in-bounds after twisting his upper body to catch under-thrown ball. Also turned screen pass into a huge gain and made over the shoulder catch on perfect pass for 60-yard TD.

2 - Carter Stanley: Extended plays with his feet and made some nice throws on the run, two features Peyton Bender doesn’t bring to the offense. In his first start of the season, Stanley completed 23 of 48 passes for 418 yards. He badly overthrew a number of targets on deep balls, but threw a perfect long ball that Steven Sims caught in stride for a 60-yard touchdown. Stanley’s hand injury made him unavailable to throw in the first four weeks of the season. He showed enough Saturday to leave the impression he’ll be the starter the rest of the season.

3 - Daniel Wise: Extremely active up front, Wise spent a lot of time in the backfield, where he was credited with 2.5 tackles for loss, one of them a 7-yard sack.

4 - Mesa Ribordy: Kansas totaled 127 yards in offense and didn’t score a point in the two full games he missed. He returned at center and the offense came with him, totaling 482 yards. He has the potential to develop into a tackle before his KU career is over.

5 - Mike Lee: Made a huge fourth-down stop for one of his seven solo tackles, two behind the line.

6 - Joe Dineen: Eight solo tackles, one assist and 1.5 tackles for loss made Dineen a loud presence.

7 - Bryce Torneden: Four solo tackles, one for a loss for the emerging sophomore who has taken well to the nickel back position.

8 - Tyler Patrick: Threw a great block on screen pass that Sims turned into a big gain. Patrick also caught three passes for 72 yards, including a career-high 47-yard gain.

9 - Ben Johnson: Strong blocking and two catches for 17 yards.

10 - Keyshaun Simmons: Helped to minimize loss of Dorance Armstrong to injury that kept Armstrong sidelined for more than half the game. Had a 10-yard sack.

Bryce Torneden tops ratings in 43-0 loss to TCU

So you think you’d like to do this job, huh? You’re one of the ones who asks, “Does the paper pay for your flight? Really? And the meals? You’re kidding? You’re so lucky.”

Oh, really? How would you like to try rank the top 10 performers in Saturday’s 43-0 loss to TCU in Amon G. Carter Stadium?

Here goes:

1 - Bryce Torneden: Blitzed his way into a prominent place in opposing offensive coordinators’ game planning. Had a sack and another tackle behind the line and two quarterback hurries to go with three solo tackles and two assists.

2 - Dorance Armstrong: Forced a fumble, had a tackle behind the line and was in on eight tackles, five solo.

3 - Joe Dineen: In on 11 tackles, seven solo, one behind the line.

4 - Daniel Wise: The always-active defensive tackle was in on four tackles, two of the solo variety.

5 - Ben Johnson: Caught four passes for 35 yards.

6 - Cole Moos: Punted 11 times for an average of 43.2. I wonder if Kansas has an easier time recruiting punters than other positions because punters like to punt.

7 - Liam Jones: Kicked off once and boomed it 65 yards for a touchback.

8 - Carter Stanley: Led the Jayhawks with 4.5 yards per rush on his two carries. Also completed 1 of 2 passes, so during garbage time he accounted for 17 yards on a night Kansas had 21 yards in total offense.

9 - J.J. Holmes: Doesn’t get pushed around.

10 - Osaze Ogbebor: Moves well.
