Ellis continues hot streak in NCAA Tournament

1 - Perry Ellis: Virtuoso performance from the scoring artist. Ellis scored 27 points without the benefit of a three-pointer. Made 10 of 17 field goals and 7 of 7 free throws. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon could not blame his players for not following the scouting report. They knew to play him to go right. He went right. And they couldn’t stop him. He blows by defenders so well on the dribble that when he faces up and jab-steps them, they have to take the fake When they do, he creates space for himself, focuses on the rim and nails the jumper. He’s performing like a first-team All-American and has scored 20 points or more in 7 of 8 games down the stretch.

2 - Wayne Selden: One nasty competitor, Selden rattled in a huge three from the left corner to give KU a lead late in the first half and followed a three with a transition bucket to put the Jayhawks up 50-43 with 16:12 left. Maryland never drew closer than six points the rest of the way. Selden certainly has a way of coming through at times and in ways that turn the momentum of a game. He’s a clutch performer.

3 - Landen Lucas: He produced 14 points and 11 rebounds and held freshman sensation Diamond Stone to five points and four boards. Lucas’ physical presence under the boards, on defense and setting screens has enabled Ellis to play the best basketball of his career, freeing the creative scorer to do his thing.

4 - Frank Mason: Got off to a rough start and made just 1 of 6 shots with one assist and one turnover in the first half, but had a much better second half and finished with 11 points, five rebounds, four assists, one turnover and two steals. Made Melo Trimble work hard for his 17 points and at times did a nice job of controlling the pace of play.

5 - Devonte Graham: Rough night for the sophomore spark plug who was due to have a bad one. It had been a while. Lost control of the ball on his way to five turnovers and scored just two points. Too good a player not to bounce back with a strong effort Saturday.

6 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Had an aggressive drive to the hoop for a bucket and made 2 of 3 free throws, contributing four points and two rebounds in 11 minutes.

7 - Carlton Bragg: Looked a little nervous early but his hustle paid off with eight rebounds in 10 scoreless minutes on 0-for-4 shooting.

8 - Jamari Traylor: After making big contributions in both games in Des Moines, it was not his strongest effort. Did make a 15-footer, but was 1 for 4 from the field, committed four fouls and didn’t pick up a rebound in 10 minutes.

Ellis on top again after memorable Senior Day

Kansas forward Perry Ellis (34) chases down a loose ball with Iowa State forward Abdel Nader (2) and teammate Wayne Selden Jr. during the first half on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse.

1. Perry Ellis – Aggressive play early staked Kansas to an early lead. Finished with 22 points and tied for the team lead with seven rebounds, all before giving a speech that showed off his comedic side. Talk about one heck of a Senior Day.

2. Devonte’ Graham – The sophomore has become so confident in his own ability to knock down clutch shots that those shots just keep finding him. Graham hit two of Saturday’s biggest shots and finished 6-of-11 overall, 4-of-8 from downtown for 16 points.

3. Frank Mason – Offensive numbers were decent, defensive numbers were excellent. Junior point guard kept Iowa State’s Monte’ Morris in check all afternoon and atoned for KU’s poor effort guarding the Cyclones’ PG in Ames in January.

4. Wayne Selden – Finished with 16 points and hit 3 of 4 from downtown but also missed 3 of 4 free throws. Dished four assists, grabbed three rebounds and recorded quite possibly the block of the year for the Jayhawks on what looked to be a sure-fire dunk for ISU’s Jameel McKay.

5. Jamari Traylor – So active and aggressive during his last game in Allen Fieldhouse, Traylor even knocked down a jumper. Finished 4-of-6 from the floor with 8 points, 2 rebounds, 3 steals and a block in 18 minutes.

6. Landen Lucas – KU coach Bill Self said he didn’t think Lucas really played like Lucas until the second half. Could have been the product of him being out of rhythm after starting the game on the bench. Still finished with six points and seven rebounds in 20 minutes.

7. Cheick Diallo – Didn’t do anything overly impressive on the stat sheet but did play with great energy for the five minutes he was out there. He’s still not completely in sync with what Self wants him to do, but the possession when he blocked a shot then hustled down an offensive rebound and scored on the put-back showed he still has something to offer this team.

8. Brannen Greene – Played just nine minutes and missed all three field goal attempts (0-for-2 from downtown) but made all four free throws in crunch time.

9. Carlton Bragg – If you blinked, you might’ve missed his two minutes on the floor. But he managed three rebounds in that short time, including two offensive, and scored on a late put-back.

10. Hunter Mickelson – Senior forward got the nod in the starting lineup and played hard for the first five minutes, grabbing a rebound and blocking a Georges Niang shot to start a key transition opportunity early.

11. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk – Played just five minutes and missed his only two three-point attempts on a day in which he didn’t factor into the game plan.

Graham’s great day leads Jayhawks past Sooners

Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4) lunges to defend against a three from Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield (24) during the first half, Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016 at Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Okla.

Kansas guard Devonte' Graham (4) lunges to defend against a three from Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield (24) during the first half, Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016 at Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Okla. by Nick Krug

1. Devonte’ Graham – The star of the game on both ends of the floor, Graham not only outscored OU’s Buddy Hield, but also used lights-out defense to limit Hield’s production in the first half to six points. KU coach Bill Self said Graham grew up a little bit on Saturday. If he hadn’t, KU definitely would have lost.

2. Frank Mason – Fouled out on a tough-break scramble play late in the game in which he fouled Jordan Woodard on a three-pointer. Woodard made the free throw and Mason set the final 3:00-plus minutes. While he was in there, Mason delivered 14 points on hard drives to the rim and added five rebounds and three assists.

3. Landen Lucas – Another big night on the boards, Lucas logged 28 minutes, grabbed 10 rebounds and made 2 of 3 field goals and 3 of 4 free throws.

4. Perry Ellis – Great in the first half, quiet in the second, KU’s leading scorer missed the only two shots he attempted in the final 20 minutes. Added seven boards to a 10-point night and had an ultra-athletic block and save.

5. Brannen Greene – Made 4 of 8 field goals, just 1 of 5 from three-point range, and helped KU race out to a big lead in the first half. Played 25 minutes and made the most of nearly all of them, finishing with 9 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 4 fouls.

6. Jamari Traylor – Played just 11 minutes but hit the boards hard as usual and used his athleticism to bother the Sooners in the lane.

7. Wayne Selden – Hit one monster shot (a late three-pointer in front of the KU bench) on an otherwise forgettable day. Finished 2-of-9 shooting for 6 points, 2 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 32 minutes.

8. Cheick Diallo – Played 7 minutes, all in the first half, and, for all his faults — silly fouls, air-mailing the ball out of bounds a time or two — was very active when he was out there. Finished with 4 rebounds, 3 fouls, a block and a steal.

9. Carlton Bragg – Whistled for a couple of silly fouls, Bragg played just three minutes and hit his only field goal attempt, that free throw line jumper that he never hesitates to take and always seems to make.

Ellis’ huge day earns top spot after KU’s comeback win over UT

Kansas forward Perry Ellis (34) bangs inside for a shot and a foul from Texas forward Connor Lammert (21) during the second half, Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas forward Perry Ellis (34) bangs inside for a shot and a foul from Texas forward Connor Lammert (21) during the second half, Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Perry Ellis: Perimeter jumper looks better than ever, which opens up everything him. Not many players who guard him will have quickness to stay with him when he pump-fakes and drives around the them. Made 9 of 15 shots for a game-high 26 points. Used quickness to pick up three offensive rebounds.

2 - Devonte' Graham: Hit huge shots at crucial times and turned 5 of 10 shooting and 3 of 6 three-point shooting into a 14-point game. Also had six assists and three rebounds.

3 - Wayne Selden: Caught fire from long distance in the second half and scored 11 of his 19 points after intermission. Made 4 of 8 three-pointers.

4 - Frank Mason: Couldn’t get his shots to fall (3 of 14), but lent physical defense at times and picked up eight rebounds and three assists and had just one turnover.

5 - Landen Lucas: His statistical line had a Dennis Rodman look to it: Zero points, 10 rebounds, six offensive boards. He started, played 23 minutes and was whistled for four personal fouls.

6 - Jamari Traylor: Immediately had positive impact on game that was headed the other way in a hurry when he checked into the game. He lent physical defense without being whistled for a foul and had two points, five rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes.

7 - Carlton Bragg: Knocked down another mid-range jumper shortly after checking into the game. Played five minutes and blocked a shot.

8 - Brannen Greene: Great hustle play: Knocked ball loose from Isaiah Taylor at top of key, joined the race for the ball at the other end and went to the floor for it. His foot was out of bounds, so KU never gained possession, but the play received an ovation from coach Bill Self. Went 0 for 2 from three.

Ellis’ efficiency tops ratings after balanced effort in win over TCU

Kansas forward Perry Ellis lofts a shot over TCU forward JD Miller (15) during the second half, Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas forward Perry Ellis lofts a shot over TCU forward JD Miller (15) during the second half, Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Perry Ellis: Had to sit because of foul trouble and when he sits, the Kansas offense suffers. Played 25 minutes and totaled 10 points, nine rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal. Energized the team with an explosive dunk in traffic.

2 - Cheick Diallo: Played an extremely active 21 minutes, time enough to produce nine points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots.

3 - Wayne Selden: Made some terrific passes, not all of which were converted. Totaled 11 points, four boards, three assists and a steal and turned it over twice. Shot lacked normal loft and made just 1 of 4 three-pointers.

4 - Devonte Graham: Scored all 10 of his points in the first 14 minutes and finished with six assists and two turnovers.

5 - Frank Mason: Couldn’t get his shot to drop and made just 3 of 10 from the field, 0 of 3 from three-point range. Committed just one turnover in 36 minutes and had six rebounds and four assists. Winced often from pain in padded left eblow.

6 - Carlton Bragg: Scored 8 of his 10 points and had all four of his rebounds in an impressive first half after Perry Ellis went to the bench with two fouls. His soft shooting touch is evident when he gets favorable bounces from the rim, which happened on two jumpers.

7 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Had an eye-popping spin move in the lane on his way to a bucket and finished with seven points in 13 minutes. Made just 1 of 5 three-point shots.

8 - Hunter Mickelson: Failed to convert on terrific pass from Selden, but made a nice pass himself during his five scoreless minutes.

9 - Jamari Traylor: Had four rebounds in eight scoreless minutes, his day ending when he took an inadvertent shot to the eye from Diallo.

10 - Brannen Greene: Due to catch fire one of these days. Took just two shots, both three-pointers, and made one.

11 - Landen Lucas: Rough five minutes.

12 - Lagerald Vick: Trillion club.

Senior forward Perry Ellis shows heart, leads Kansas to huge win over OU

Kansas forward Perry Ellis (34) gets fouled by Oklahoma forward Ryan Spangler (00) on his way to the bucket during the second half, Monday, Jan. 4, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas forward Perry Ellis (34) gets fouled by Oklahoma forward Ryan Spangler (00) on his way to the bucket during the second half, Monday, Jan. 4, 2016 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 - Perry Ellis: Played 53 minutes, most of it in the paint, and never backed down from contact. Opened the game on a tear and had another scoring binge late before running out of gas. Totaled 27 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and just one turnover. Made 2 of 3 three-pointers and had a nice variety of hook shots that found the bottom of the net.

2 - Frank Mason: Also played 53 minutes and saved his best for the last 12 seconds. Deflected the inbounds pass from Buddy Hield at that point of the game, chased down the loose ball and a couple of dribble moves later was on his way for an uncontested layup when Hield fouled him with nine seconds left. Made both free throws for the game’s final points. Perhaps from exhaustion from chasing around Hield for the second half and all three overtime periods, Mason made just 5 of 20 shots from the field.

3 - Wayne Selden: Made some huge shots in the clutch and played 43 minutes without turning it over once. Made 9 of 17 shots and 3 of 7 three-pointers.

4 - Devonte Graham: Looked younger, less ready for the big stage than most of the players on the floor in the first half. He sure grew up in a hurry after intermission.

5 - Jamari Traylor: Played a terrific second half, showing fire at times when teammates were dragging. Used explosive jumping ability to stop Oklahoma from scoring at the hoop. Had three blocked shots, made all three field-goal attempts and had three rebounds in 15 minutes.

6 - Landen Lucas: Shook off a poor first half to make huge play after huge play in the overtime periods. Made 5 of 6 free throws, had a huge tip-in, and finished with seven points, eight rebounds and a blocked shot.

7 - Brannen Greene: Made 2 of 3 three-pointers, had two assists and a steal and had five defensive rebounds. Showing better effort defensively but still spaces out here and there at that end of the floor.

8 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Hit a three from the right corner, but also committed three fouls in six minutes. Didn’t look as quick as the players he guarded.

9 - Hunter Mickelson: Scored team’s first bucket on a short-corner jumper but didn’t score again and totaled nine minutes of action. Two of his three rebounds came off the offensive boards.

10 - Carlton Bragg: One day, he’ll thrive in a game of skill and will such as this one, but that day isn’t here yet.

11 - Cheick Diallo: Not quite ready for a game against a team with such experienced players.

Junior guard Frank Mason helps Jayhawks sprint by Holy Cross

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) nearly intercepts a pass to Holy Cross forward Karl Charles (1) during the first half, Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1. Frank Mason III — Relentlessly pushed the pace all night and did so without wearing himself down to the point of becoming ineffective on either end. Made 5 of 6 field goal attempts (including both three-point tries) and added 5 assists, three rebounds and even a block in a team-high 27 minutes.

2. Brannen Greene — Back from suspension a game earlier than expected, the junior sharp-shooter made all but one shot — 3 of 4 from behind the arc — and even put the ball on the deck and attacked the rim. Scored 14 points in 17 minutes.

3. Wayne Selden Jr. — Set the tone early with a couple of three-pointers (he's now shooting .595 from three after a 3-for-4 night) and continued to attack and play with a ferocious mentality. Scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting and added 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals but also turned it over four times.

4. Perry Ellis — Delivered another pretty quiet night but finished with 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting and scored with ease in the paint.

5. Devonté Graham — Made 2 of 3 three-point attempts and set the table in transition five times for teammates. Also snagged three steals and just continues to look stronger and more confident each time out.

6. Cheick Diallo — Struggled through a few rough stretches and still looks like he's behind — especially in the eyes of Bill Self — but his motor never stops revving and Wednesday night it led to 12 points and four rebounds in 18 minutes.

7. Carlton Bragg — Had 4 points on 2-of-4 shooting, and committed four fouls, but all five of his rebounds were of the offensive variety, including back-to-back impressive boards on a possession that ended with a Greene three-pointer.

8. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk — Finally made a three-pointer again (1-of-3 from downtown) and scored two buckets in transition while grabbing four rebounds and turning it over twice.

9. Hunter Mickelson — Was active early, especially defensively, but didn't do much to fill up the stat sheet and committed a couple of silly fouls while starting in place of injured Jamari Traylor.

10. LeGerald Vick — Contributed two assists and a steal in just five minutes and missed his only shot.

South Korea Selden returns to lead KU to Maui title

Kansas forward Jamari Traylor, left, and Kansas guard Wayne Selden Jr. celebrate following the Jayhawks' 70-63 win over Vanderbilt Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015 at Lahaina Civic Center in Lahaina, Hawaii.

Kansas forward Jamari Traylor, left, and Kansas guard Wayne Selden Jr. celebrate following the Jayhawks' 70-63 win over Vanderbilt Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015 at Lahaina Civic Center in Lahaina, Hawaii. by Nick Krug

1 - Wayne Selden: MVP of the World University Games was MVP of the Maui Invitational. Junior guard matched career high with 25 points and only blemish of the evening came when he missed four consecutive free throws in the final minute of action. Had seven rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot, did not turn it over once and was not whistled for a single foul. Selden made 8 of 11 shots from the field and 4 of 6 from three. For the tourney, he made 12 of 17 threes and has made 17 of 29 for the season.

2 - Devonte Graham: Completed terrific tournament by producing 12 points and six rebounds and in the second half ensured that Kansas ended up with good shots.

3 - Frank Mason: As did Graham, he turned it over just once. Forced a couple of shots on drives, but put a lot of pressure on the defense and totaled 10 points, five rebounds and three assists.

4 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Seven-point effort included a couple of dirving shots kissed softly off the glass. Played most confident basketball of his Kansas career during the tournament.

5 - Perry Ellis: Had trouble getting shots off and rushed others against Vandy’s long post defenders and made just 1 of 8 field-goal attempts and turned it over three times. Contributed eight rebounds and had huge offensive board with Kansas protecting six-point lead with minute-and-a-half left.

6 - Carlton Bragg: Great extra pass when double-teamed in post to feed Jamari Traylor showed some of his better qualities: Skilled passer, quick decision-maker, comfortable under durress. Better equipped to handle exceptional length of Vanderbilt defenders than was Ellis.

7 - Jamari Traylor: Three points, fourrebounds, two fouls, two turnovers.

8 - Landen Lucas: Four points, four rebounds and three personal fouls.

9 - Hunter Mickelson: Had a point, rebound and assist in limited action.

Kansas guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (10) looks to swing a pass over to Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) during the first half, Monday, Nov. 23, 2015 at Lahaina Civic Center in Lahaina, Hawaii. by Nick Krug

1 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Caught fire from long range and never cooled off. Scored all 18 of his points from beyond the arc, making 6 of 11 threes in 19 minutes. Also had three assists and three rebounds in the first game of Brannen Greene’s six-game suspension. Stroke looked great.

2 - Wayne Selden: Fired some great passes to set up teammates for easy buckets and finished with 18 points, seven assists and five rebounds. He also made 4 of 6 three-point shots.

3 - Devonte Graham: Made great decisions and kept the ball moving on a night he did a little bit of everything. Scored 15 points, made 3 of 5 three-pointers, had three assists, three rebounds and did not turn it over in 28 minutes. Also had two steals and consistently applied pressure.

4 - Frank Mason: Finsihed strong at the hoop with both hands, kept the offense moving fast and put the ball into the right hands on a night he contributed 14 points, seven assists and six rebounds and turned it over twice in 26 minutes. Averaging five rebounds a game.

5 - Carlton Bragg: Had nine points, six rebounds and two assists and made 4 of 5 field goals in just 12 minutes. Has played 40 minutes and has 20 points and nine rebounds and has made 9 of 13 shots. A skilled perimeter shooter, he gets the ball up in a hurry down low. There is nothing not to like about his present and future.

6 - Landen Lucas: Contributed a double-double in 17 minutes with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Also had four assists and three turnovers. Lucas missed several easy shots vs. Michigan State, but didn’t miss any vs. Chaminade, making all four field-goal attempts.

7 - Perry Ellis: Quiet night, but he was not needed. Contributed 11 points and eight boards in 24 minutes.

8 - Jamari Traylor: Again hustled his way to a strong effort, particularly defensively. In 14 minutes, he totaled four points, three rebounds, three blocked shots and two steals. Made both of his field-goal attempts.

9 - Hunter Mickelson: Blocked a 25-footer and hit the deck chasing the loose ball. Totaled 11 points and two blocked shots in 12 minutes and made 5 of 5 field-goal attempts.

10 - LaGerald Vick: Looked comfortable in 15 minutes of action. Totaled six points, two rebounds and two assists. Made all three of his shots inside the three-point semi-circle and missed both three attempts.
