1 - Landen Lucas: He picked a good time to have a career night, because without a rugged defensive rebounder hanging tough nobody is going to beat West Virginia. Lucas totaled nine points, 16 rebounds and four blocked shots, the latter two totals career highs. He made 4 of 5 field goals and has been finishing better of late.
2 - Perry Ellis: His scoring totals in KU’s past five Big 12 contests: 26, 23, 19, 23 and on Tuesday night 21 points. He made 7 of 9 field goals and 1 of 2 three-pointers. In his past three games, Ellis has made 26 of 34 field goals, a .765 percentage. His spin move is ridiculously quick and his three-point touch forever improves. He’s shooting .475 from long range.
3 - Frank Mason III: Appeared to have the spring back in his step and he used it to produce 14 points, five rebounds and a steal. He has not been as consistent this season, perhaps because he battles so many bumps and bruises, but his point total is remarkably consistent. He has come out of the past 15 games with a season scoring average that never has been below 13 points and never higher than 13.4 points.
4 - Brannen Greene: He burst out of the doghouse with 10 points and four defensive rebounds in 16 active minutes. Made 2 of 3 three-pointers. Fired up the crowd.
5 - Devonté Graham: He ran into some traps and turned it over five times, but it’s more difficult to take care of the ball against West Virginia than any team in the country. He also buried 2 of 4 three-point shots and had four rebounds and four assists to go with 10 points in 38 minutes. Made sure Kansas pushed the pace from the outset.
6 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Woofing in the face of an opponent right next to a referee after scoring a bucket drew him a technical, his second foul of the first half. Played well defensively and made some nice passes en route to 11-point, two-assist effort.
7 - Cheick Diallo: Had an active two-minute stretch in the first half and picked up an offensive rebound and a personal foul.
8 - Jamari Traylor: Played nine scoreless minutes, picked up one rebound, one assist, two turnovers, two blocked shots and a steal.
9 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Scoreless in four minutes.
10 - Carlton Bragg: Played one minute and committed a foul.

1 - Perry Ellis: His strong senior season continued with a ho-hum 23-point, 10-rebound performance. Too quick and efficient for the Horned Frogs to handle, Ellis made 11 of 12 two-point field goals. He missed both three-point attempts.
2 - Devonté Graham: Hustled his way to multiple floor burns and played with a contagious enthusiasm on his way to 15 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals on a day he did not turn it over.
3 - Jamari Traylor: Scrapped his way to six points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes before fouling out. Grabbed five offensive rebounds, which means he rebounded more of KU’s misses than any other Horned Frog did.
4 - Frank Mason III: Made just 1 of 5 three-pointers and had three turnovers, but was active defensively and dished six assists.
5 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Battling the flu, his shot was way off (1 for 5, 0 for 4 from three), but his physical defense gave TCU problems and he had five assists and just one turnover.
6 - Landen Lucas: Guards did a great job of feeding the post and although he didn’t always finish, Lucas did make 4 of 4 free throws and both field-goal attempts on his way to eight points and three rebounds in 17 minutes.
7 - Cheick Diallo: Was extremely active during his 10 minutes on the floor. He grabbled five rebounds, scored two points, blocked a shot and had a steal to go with two turnovers. Whistled for two personal fouls, both avoidable.
8 - Carlton Bragg: Snagged five rebounds, including one off a teammate’s missed free throws, in 10 minutes.
9 - Lagerald Vick: Knocked down a three from the right corner after Bragg snagged a missed free throw and fired a pass to him.
10 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Had wide-open shots and couldn’t bury them, making just 1 of 3 three-pointers and missing both shots inside the arc. One of his stints on the floor ended quickly because of shoddy defense.
11 - Hunter Mickelson: Played two minutes and picked up an offensive rebound, a missed shot and a personal foul.
12 - Brannen Greene: His two appearances on the floor added up to one scoreless minute. Benched for lazy defense seconds into his first appearance on the floor.

- Keegan Ratings: Perry Ellis carries Kansas
1 - Perry Ellis: Senior is shooting 50 percent from three after going 3 for 3 on his way to a 19-point game. Had two steals and five rebounds. Made 8 of 11 shots from the field.
2 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Forgotten man had a night to remember with 10 points, four assists and three steals in 21 minutes off the bench. Good chance he’ll get big minutes again Saturday at TCU.
3 - Jamari Traylor: Totaled five points, four rebounds and two blocked shots and a steal in 13 minutes.
4 - Landen Lucas: Had eight points, six rebounds and played 25 minutes before fouling out.
5 - Devonté Graham: Made K-State play sloppy and had three steals. Made just 1 of 4 three-pointers and totaled 10 points, three rebounds and four assists. Turned it over twice.
6 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Failed to follow up phenomenal game vs. Kentucky with a good one. Played 24 minutes, made 1 of 5 three-point shots and 3 of 9 field goals. Totaled seven points, no rebounds and three turnovers. Some of his shots were ill-advised.
7 - Frank Mason III: His drives to the hoop sometimes amount to driving a bridge to nowhere. Opponents don’t foul him as often as in the past and he gets caught without an easy play. Made 1 of 5 shots.
8 - Brannen Greene: Shot 3 of 3 from the field, 1 of 1 from three, 1 of 1 from the free-throw line and did not turn it over on a night he scored eight points in six minutes.
Yet, as far as the coach was concerned, Greene had the most obnoxious night of anyone in the building. (Then again, the coach had no way of knowing about the woman who stood behind me the whole game screeching unbelievably loudly in my ear all night, damaging my hearing). Any way, back to Greene. He dunk with one second remaining, instead of dribbling out the clock, which absolutely infuriated his coach, who spent the rest of the night apologizing for it.
9 - Carlton Bragg: Scored two points, blocked a shot and had a turnover in five minutes.
10 - Cheick Diallo: Played two minutes in the first half.

- Jayhawks thrive on K-State’s mistakes to win Sunflower Showdown
- Keegan Ratings: Perry Ellis shows off 3-point skills vs. Wildcats
1 - Wayne Selden Jr.: His one-handed slam over 6-foot-11 Skal Labissiere, who also wears No. 1 on his jersey, will be played to the delight of Allen Fieldhouse crowds for the rest of his Kansas career. Selden never has been better than he was Saturday. He repeatedly stung Kentucky with drives to the hoop and long three-pointers (3 for 5) on his way to a 33-point night. He played 44 minutes and never looked tired. Not many perimeter players in the country can match his strength.
2 - Perry Ellis: Kentucky executed a sound game plan to perfection against Ellis, limiting his scoring chances. He made 1 of 4 field goals and hit just 8 of 13 free throws. Battled his way to 10 points and nine rebounds, four off the offensive glass.
3 - Jamari Traylor: He doesn’t bring a lot of basketball skills to the equation and he is on the short side for an inside player, but he never is athletically overmatched and he doesn’t shy from contact. Lent a strong defensive effort and chipped in with five points, a block, a steal and five boards, four offensive.
4 - Carlton Bragg: Ellis was limited by foul trouble to six first-half minutes and Bragg rode to the rescue with six first-half points in nine minutes. Excellent shooters have such soft touches and get the shooter’s bounce. He forever gets the shooter’s bounce.
5 - Frank Mason III: Kentucky’s super-quick point guard Tyler Ulis gave Mason more than he could handle until Kansas switched to a triangle-and-two defense. Made 1 of 7 two-point field goals and 2 of 4 three-pointers. Contributed eight defensive rebounds, four assists, three turnovers and two steals. Playing point guard against KU’s schedule is like playing cornerback in the Big 12.
6 - Brannen Greene: Was the only player to make all of his free throws (shot four of them), made 1 of 2 threes and picked up four defensive rebounds in 10 minutes. Committed two turnovers.
7 - Devonté Graham: He and Mason combined for eight turnovers in the first half, one in the remaining 25 minutes.
8 - Cheick Diallo: Made a long jumper and contributed three rebounds, two off the offensive boards, in 10 minutes.
9 - Landen Lucas: Struggled to keep pace with Kentucky’s athletic big men. Committed four personal fouls in 13 minutes to go with three points, three rebounds and a turnover. Made just 3 of 6 free throws.
10 - Lagerald Vick: Played two minutes, missed an ill-advised three and was whistled for a foul.

- Keegan Ratings: Wayne Selden takes his game to another level
1 - Perry Ellis: Was matching Georges Niang shot for shot for a stretch, and was the one Jayhawk whose performance never dropped off when the Cyclones took control of the game. Shot 6 of 10 from the field in the second half, when the rest of the team shot 4 of 15. Scored a game-high 23 points and played hard for 36 minutes.
2 - Brannen Greene: Contributed nine points, four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes. Made 2 of 4 three-pointers (was slapped on the side of the hand on one of his misses without drawing a whistle) and made Iowa State account for his whereabouts at all times.
3 - Frank Mason III: Looked like his old self in the first half, driving hard to the hoop, but didn’t do a good job of securing the ball in the second half. Finished with 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and six turnovers.
4 - Devonté Graham: His enthusiasm is a plus. Now it’s time for him to take the next step and show some tough love to teammates when they deserve to hear it. Finished with seven points, four rebounds and four assists.
5 - Landen Lucas: Two things should never come as a surprise about Landen Lucas: First, he can’t score. Second, he sure can rebound. Had two points and nine rebounds, meaning that in the last two games he has two points and 19 rebounds.
6 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Made just 1 of 6 three-pointers and had just two rebounds and one assist. Has not been as good a player in Big 12 action as in non-conference games.
7 - Carlton Bragg: Had two points, two rebounds and a turnover in six minutes.
8 - Jamari Traylor: Picked up two quick fouls and wasn’t a factor for the rest of the night.
9 - Cheick Diallo: Four minutes, zeroes across the board.
10 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Trillion-club entry.
11 - Lagerald Vick: Played one minute and took his requisite three-pointer, missing this time.

1 - Carlton Bragg: Other than getting into foul trouble (four whistles in 11 minutes), he had a strong night. He’s a terrific mid-range shooter and is making the close shots he was missing earlier. Had eight points, four rebounds and a steal.
2 - Devonté Graham: Totaled 10 points and five assists and had just one turnover.
3 - Landen Lucas: Kansas played better defense when he was in the game, although his lack of quickness was exposed at times. Contributed five points and five rebounds in 13 minutes.
4 - Perry Ellis: Made just 3 of 10 shots from the field and 7 of 12 free throws. Totaled 13 points and three rebounds in 33 minutes.
5 - Frank Mason III: Played 34 minutes without an assist and couldn’t keep Jawun Evans in front of him. Scored a team-high 14 points.
6 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Shot was off (1 for 4 three-pointers) and finished with seven points, two rebounds, two assists and three turnovers.
7 - Cheick Diallo: Makes astonishing, as in astonishingly good and astonishingly bad, plays. On one startling defensive possession, when the play was to step up, he retreated out of bounds. Started and played 13 minutes. Produced four points, two rebounds and a steal.
8 - Lagerald Vick: Played eight minutes and turned it over just once. Made his only shot, a three-pointer. He has made 5 of 10 for the season.
9 - Svi Mykhailiuk: With Brannen Greene sidelined by a knee injury, Kansas needed a big shooting night from Svi. Teammates set him with open shots, but he couldn’t hit them. He made just 1 of 5 three-point shots and was 1 for 7 overall.
10 - Jamari Traylor: Played six minutes, picked up two rebounds, two fouls, a turnovers and a steal.
11 - Hunter Mickelson: Played two minutes and had an assist.

- Keegan Ratings: Carlton Bragg best of bunch on bad night
1. Perry Ellis – The only guy who got anything going offensively, Ellis finished with team highs in points (21) and rebounds (7) and probably should've touched the ball 100 more times.
2. Landen Lucas – His numbers — 2 points, 6 rebounds, 4 fouls, 1 block, 1 turnover — don't tell the story. Lucas was up off the bench early and appeared to be ready for the physical battle that West Virginia brought. But a couple of silly fouls kept him from finding a rhythm and hurt the Kansas defense.
3. Jamari Traylor – Two points, four boards and two steals in 11 minutes isn't bad. His turnover was, but at least it looked like Traylor cared, as he displayed by slamming two hands onto the scorer's table after a miscue. Both he and Lucas at least looked like they wanted to play.
4. Devonté Graham – Played frantic all night and never looked comfortable with the ball. Managed seven points, three assists and three rebounds before fouling out and gets the nod here because he had just one turnover.
5. Wayne Selden Jr. – Hit two three-pointers early and appeared to be headed for a big scoring night. But then he went cold, made just one of five shots the rest of the night and turned it over an improbable six times.
6. Frank Mason III – An off night any way you slice it. Turned it over seven times and scored 11 points on 3-of-6 shooting in just 25 minutes.
7. Hunter Mickelson – Started yet again but played just five minutes and scored one bucket with two rebounds, one offensive.
8. Carlton Bragg – Three points and three rebounds in six minutes. Also turned it over once and was called for basket interference.
9. Brannen Greene – Looked a little too much like the Brannen Greene of old. No effort, no energy, no intensity no makes on two attempts. Did manage to snag four rebounds.
10. Svi Mykhailiuk – Played 17 minutes and had next to nothing to show for it. Missed all four shots he attempted — 0-of-3 from three-point range — and fouled three times.
11. Cheick Diallo – Had a chance to spark the team on a night it really needed a lift, but committed two out-of-control fouls, one rebound and one steal in four minutes.
12. Lagerald Vick – Came in with the outcome already decided and banked in a three-point shot to give him three points. Also grabbed one rebound and a foul.

2- Perry Ellis: Had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Norense Odiase gave Ellis a lot of trouble when he checked him late in the game.
3 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 2 of 3 three-point shots, including a big one late in the game. Scored seven points in 14 minutes and looked very comfortable for an 18-year-old.
4 - Landen Lucas: Physical style wore down the Red Raiders and played a part in a 42-26 rebound disparity, even though Lucas had just two rebounds. Had two assists and a big blocked shot and scored five points in 16 minutes.
5 - Brannen Greene: Had a couple of nice stretches early in the first half, made 2 of 3 three-pointers and had four rebounds. Also had three turnovers, which limited his playing time to 11 minutes.
6 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Had the biggest shot of the night, burying a three from deep in the left corner just ahead of the shot clock expiring. Couldn’t get anything to fall in the first half, when he missed all seven field-goal attempts. Heated up as the game progressed and finished with nine points and just one turnover.
7 - Carlton Bragg: Had four points, three rebounds and three turnovers.
8 - Devonté Graham: Rough night for the sophomore guard. Made just 1 of 6 shots from the field and missed both three-point attempts.
9 - Hunter Mickelson: Scored the team’s first bucket but didn’t get another point or rebound and played just five minutes.

1 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Made his first seven shots on four three-pointers, two drives and one stop-and-pop, mid-range jumper. Had 18 of his 24 points in the first half. Made 5 of 6 three-point shots.
2 - Devonté Graham: Came out on fire and never stopped hustling. Made 6 of 8 shots, 2 of 4 threes and contributed 15 points, four assists and three steals, without turning it over.
3 - Perry Ellis: For the second game in a row he came out for the second half in super-aggressive mode and made key plays. Showed his wide array of scoring methods on his way to a 17-point, six-rebound, three-assist day in 24 minutes of action. Looks so natural shooting threes now and has made 9 of 17, including 1 of 2 Saturday.
4 - Frank Mason III: Shook off a so-so first half and took over for a stretch when Kansas needed to put more cushion on its lead. Had 11 points, five rebounds and four assists.
5 - Hunter Mickelson: If two of his blocked shots had not wrongly been whistled as personal fouls, his line would have read seven points, six rebounds, five blocked shots. Is giving opposing drivers something to think about before they enter the lane.
6 - Brannen Greene: Left in the final minutes, clutching his right thumb in serious pain. As has been the case lately, looked to drive more often and hustled defensively. Had eight points, three boards and a steal.
7 - Carlton Bragg: Looked a little more comfortable and produced six points and three rebounds in 10 minutes. Knocked down a three.
8 - Cheick Diallo: Looked extremely athletic blocking a shot that turned into an outlet pass for a fast-break bucket. Also looked more raw then ever offensively. Produced four points and two rebounds in six minutes.
9 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Was aggressive enough to make five free throws in four minutes of action and picked up a rebound.
10 -Lagerald Vick: For the second game in a row, Vick hit a three-pointer at the end of the game.
11 - Jamari Traylor: Emphatic blocked shot of a Lester Medford drive threw a charge into the crowd and was the highlight of his day that included two assists and four personal fouls in 10 scoreless minutes without a rebound.
12 - Landen Lucas: Two points, two boards and two turnovers in 11 minutes.

1 - Frank Mason III: Did a nice job of using quick hands to lend disruptive help to post defenders and played another tidy, high-speed game in both halves. Had 13 points, six assists and three steals.
2 - Perry Ellis: Had one point and seven rebounds in the first half and finished with 14 points and nine rebounds.
3 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Redirected a ball in mid-air for a 50-foot, on-the-money pass up court to Devonté Graham, one of Selden’s many terrific passes. Add quarterback to the list of positions he could play well in football, joining linebacker and tight end. Chose the right sport though and again did a little bit of everything to help Kansas win. Totaled eight points, seven rebounds and five assists. Seems to be jumping higher than ever, an indication he might be healthier than ever.
4 - Devonté Graham: Shot better in the first half, making a trio of three-pointers, and distributed the ball better in the second half, picking up all three of his assists.
5 - Landen Lucas: Never grew weary of leaning on UCI’s 300-pound center. Produced eight points, four rebounds and a steal in 15 minutes.
6 - Hunter Mickelson: Looked about 6-foot-2 and 12 years old when standing next to UCI’s 7-foot-6 center, Mamadou Ndiaye, but played well. Had six points, two boards, a block and two assists in 11 minutes as a starter.
7 - Brannen Greene: Was aggressive enough to shoot 11 free throws in 18 minutes, but missed three of them and both of his three-point attempts.
8 - Cheick Diallo: Scored six points, had two rebounds and made all four of his free throws. Also threw a way-too-high pass out to the perimeter for a turnover.
9 - Jamari Traylor: Picked up a point and a rebound and took an elbow to the head on a play on which he was whistled for a foul.
10 - Lagerald Vick: Hit a three-pointer to the delight of the crowd.
11 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Committed three personal fouls and one turnover in 10 scoreless minutes.
12 - Carlton Bragg: Fumbled a pass for a turnover and badly missed his lone shot, an open baseline jumper. Played nine scoreless minutes.
