1 - Devonte’ Graham: Had his finger prints on pretty much every good play to deliver Kansas a 15-2 lead, but in the end, Arizona State’s guards ruled the day. Graham had 19 points, eight assists, four rebounds and three steals and made 5 of 11 3-point shots.

2 - Lagerald Vick: Made 11 of 15 field goals and 3 of 6 3-pointers on way to team-high 25 points. Also had seven rebounds in 39-minute effort.

3 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Played two completely different halves, doing good and not-so-good things in both halves. Missed all five shots, including a trio of treys, in the first half, but also had six assists without turning it over. Scored 14 second-half points, but turned it over four times, killing chances at a comeback. Teams will follows ASU's scouting report on Svi: Crowd him when he has the ball to pick his dribble.

4 - Malik Newman: Graham did terrific job of setting him up for 3-pointers and he made 3 of 8 to finish with 13 points, five rebounds and two steals.

5 - Udoka Azubuike: Had many opportunities for blocked shots but came away with only two. Had 13 points and nine rebounds.

6 - Mitch Lightfoot: Hit the boards hard with five in 18 minutes and blocked two shots, but committed three turnovers in one-point effort.

7 - Marcus Garrett: Scoreless with one rebound and no assists in 15 minutes. Missed a pair of 3-pointers, his only two shots.

Lagerald Vick tops ratings in loss to Washington

Kansas guard Lagerald Vick (2) puts up a shot in the paint during the first half, Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017 at Sprint Center.

1 - Lagerald Vick: Syracuse coach Mike Hopkins picked his poison and the poison he picked was Vick. He gave him the breathing room to operate inside the lane and extended the Washington zone to take away 3-pointers. Vick missed enough shots to make it work. He made 12 of 23 shots, scored 28 points and had five rebounds, seven assists and four turnovers.

2 - Udoka Azubuike: Totaled 10 points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots, but limited himself to seven first-half minutes by picking up two fouls. Had a brief stretch where he brought Kansas back to within one point, but for the most part didn't put his stamp on the game, wasn't aggressive enough on a night that he had opportunities to clean up inside.

3 - Devonte' Graham: Washington lost sight of him just once, when he picked up a loose ball and buried a 3-pointer in the first half, his only points. Made 1 of 8 shots and 1 of 5 3-pointers. He had five assists and could have had more had teammates made shots. He had just one turnover and picked up two steals.

4 - Marcus Garrett: Used his super quick hands to steal the ball and prevent Washington from getting up a shot on its final first-half possession. It was one of his three steals to go with two points, five rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

5 - Mitch Lightfoot: Set up nicely by Vick for easy buckets early, Lightfoot picked up two fouls in five first-half minutes, denying himself more easy opportunities. Finished with four points and six rebounds in eight minutes.

6 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made just 2 of 8 3-pointers and finished with eight points, four assists and three turnovers. Not a good rebounder for his size, he had just two boards.

7 - Malik Newman: Not fitting in yet. Looks to make scoring plays when the right play is to keep the ball moving by passing it. Had just two points heading into game's final minute and finished with eight by hitting a pair of 3-pointers.

Devonte’ Graham tops ratings vs. Syracuse with second consecutive 35-point game

1 - Devonte’ Graham: Tied career-high with 35 points, made 7 of 13 3-pointers, had five assists, most on lobs, and five turnovers with two steals. Outscored Syracuse 14-4 at end of first half and stayed hot throughout second half. Averaging 35 points in past two games.

2 - Lagerald Vick: Terrific night. Did a nice job of getting the ball in the middle of the zone and reading his options. Can hit the mid-range jumper, one of the things that makes him dangerous in that spot. Also did a nice job of finding open 3-point shooters. Flirted with a triple-double with 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Had two steals and three turnovers and his high-flying left-handed flush on a lob from Graham ranks high on his building career-highlight video.

3 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Bad passing led to three first-half turnovers and four for the night. Made 3 of 7 3-pointers, scored 11 points and had four rebounds and four assists.

4 - Udoka Azubuike: Looked puzzled as to where he should be at times against Syracuse’s 2-3 zone. Didn’t make himself available for post feeds, but did nice job on the boards. Had six points, nine rebounds and one blocked shot. Two first-half fouls limited him to six minutes.

5 - Malik Newman: Rough night. Vick consistently fed him for wide-open 3-pointers but Newman couldn’t drain them and finished 1 for 8 from the field and 0 for 6 from beyond the arc. Had five rebounds, five assists and three turnovers.

6 - Marcus Garrett: Scoreless in eight minutes, he had two rebounds and a turnover and was whistled for three fouls, which isn’t necessarily the same as saying he committed three fouls.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Threw down a lob, blocked a shot and committed four fouls in eight minutes.

Devonte’ Graham tops ratings vs. Toledo with career-high 35 points

1 - Devonte’ Graham: Scored a career high 35 points to go with five rebounds, five assists and two steals and did not have a single turnover. Graham made 14 of 19 field goals and 5 of 8 3-pointers. Also played well defensively.

2 - Malik Newman: Did a better job of driving to the bucket and had 17 points on 7 of 10 shooting. Added three rebounds, two assists and three steals. Made his only 3-pointer.

3 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 5 of 6 3-pointers and scored 15 points. Shooting .564 from 3 on the season.

4 - Udoka Azubuike: Moving from left to right, he swept across the lane and put up a hook shot that went in, the highlight of a 12-point, five-rebound night for the big man off to an impressive start to the season. Committed just two fouls in 24 minutes.

5 - Marcus Garrett: His line resembled that of former NBA great and self-appointed North Korean ambassador Dennis Rodman. Scoreless, he had seven rebounds, four assists and two steals and took just one shot.

6 - Lagerald Vick: Had one killer move, dribbling hard right, then wrapping it around his back left to leave himself with an open 3 that he knocked down. Other than that, not his best night. Made 3 of 9 shots and finished with seven points, five rebounds and two assists. Didn’t defend Toledo’s Tre’Shaun Fletcher to coach Bill Self’s satisfaction and was switched off of him.

7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Continues to show a nice shooting touch. Had six points, four rebounds and a blocked shot. Also had three turnovers.

1 - Daniel Wise: Had a hand in KU limiting Justice Hill to 58 rushing yards on 16 carries. Made three tackles behind the line, forced a fumble had seven solo tackles and one assist. Generally showed why he was team’s best player in 2017.

2 - Steven Sims: Caught nine passes for 69 yards and a touchdown and returned a punt 35 yards.

3 - Joe Dineen: Two tackles for loss, nine total and seven solo tackles for the Big 12’s leader in TFLs, tackles and solo tackles.

4 - Evan Fairs: Terrific catch in the right-front corner of the end zone for KU’s first touchdown. Finished with two catches for 44 yards.

5 - Peyton Bender: He throws a nice enough ball that he would be a good fit for a school that has the advantage in the trenches. Facing plenty of duress, he completed 17 of 32 for 172 yards and two touchdowns and one interception.

6 - Gabriel Rui: Career-high 50-yard field goal. His personal record had been 43 yards, achieved twice this season. Never let it be said Kansas did not improve in any area in 2017. Rui upgraded the field-goal kicking with a strong season.

7 - Mesa Ribordy: Team’s best offensive lineman all season.

8 - Taylor Martin: Grinded his way to 60 yards on 17 carries, an average of 3.5 yards.

9 - Ryan Schadler: Caught two passes for 31 yards and averaged 22 yards on six kick returns.

10 - Hasan Defense: Flagged for back-to-back interference penalties in end zone and was beaten by James Washington for touchdown, but showed a lot of aggressiveness in battling the conference’s top receiver and made him earn his 106 yards on eight catches. Made one great play to deny Washington a catch in the end zone.

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.
