Garrett the grinder tops ratings after latest all-around gem in 65-50 win at Oklahoma State
1 – Marcus Garrett – Nearly recorded a triple-double with the most Marcus Garrett-like performance of all time. Seven points. Eight rebounds. Nine assists. All in 34 minutes. Steady, subtle and so solid. His composure was clutch in helping KU survive a rough stretch to close the first half en route to the 65-50 win.
2 – Christian Braun – Making the first start of his KU career, Braun knocked in four 3-pointers and led the Jayhawks with 16 points. He also added 9 rebounds and played with the kind of fire and passion about which his teammates and coaches have bragged since he arrived on campus.
3 – Isaiah Moss – Seemed to be comfortable in his sixth-man role and finished with 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting, 3-of-8 from 3-point range.
4 – Udoka Azubuike – His 5 blocks (he now has 13 in his last 3 games) saved an otherwise ho-hum night for the KU big man, who again found foul trouble and finished with 6 points and 7 rebounds. He’ll be happy to get David McCormack back from suspension because every foul will not be magnified quite as much with McCormack on the bench.
5 – Devon Dotson – Played just 26 minutes because of foul trouble and watched his teammates deliver a knock-out blow without him. Still managed to tally 11 points and 3 assists while turning it over just once.
6 – Ochai Agbaji – His pass-3-pointer, which never was supposed to go in either has him first on your list or last, depending on your perspective. It wasn’t the best night for Agbaji, who hit just 2 of 9 shots in the win. But the two makes were from 3-point range and he added four rebounds and two assists while turning it over just once.
7 – Tristan Enaruna – Again was needed because of KU’s depleted depth and he delivered a big 3-pointer and 5 rebounds in 15 minutes. Made just 1 of 6 shots.
1 – Udoka Azubuike – 144
2 – Marcus Garrett – 130
3 – Devon Dotson – 127
4 – Ochai Agbaji – 113
5 – Isaiah Moss – 89
6 – David McCormack – 83z
7 – Christian Braun – 79
8 – Tristan Enaruna – 54
9 – Silvio De Sousa – 47+
10 – Jalen Wilson – 2x
