Marcus Garrett's big game earns top spot but can't quite carry Kansas
1 – Marcus Garrett — Garrett’s found his offense again, knocking in 3 of 5 3-pointers, grabbing 12 rebounds and scoring 21 points to lead Kansas during Saturday's 75-68 loss at Oklahoma. And, defensively, he did a lot of the things you’d expect him to do. He wasn’t perfect, but KU would’ve been run out of the gym without him.
2 – Mitch Lightfoot — Lightfoot had arguably the best second half of any player in the game. He scored in the post with both hands, dished a nice dime to a cutting Wilson for two more points and hammered home an emphatic, two-handed dunk while bringing his usual energy and toughness to the floor. Finished with 6 points and 3 rebounds in 11 minutes.
3 – Jalen Wilson — This was a weird game for Wilson. After a hot start, he cooled considerably and finished the game without a rebound. Still, he score 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting and helped Kansas finally get out to a fast start again.
4 – Dajuan Harris — The redshirt freshman point guard, who played some with Garrett on the floor, tallied 5 points and 4 assists in 21 minutes and had moments where he showed the kind of impact he can have on the game and this Kansas offense. He’s still not a weapon that opponents fear, which hurts KU’s offense, but he was aggressive in looking to score and gave this team what he could while he was out there.
5 – Ochai Agbaji — Made just three of eight field goal attempts and turned it over four times in 33 minutes. He even missed a couple of free throws, further hammering home the point that it just wasn’t Agbaji’s day.
6 – David McCormack — Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: McCormack looked good at times and bad at others. His 10 points came on 4-of-10 shooting. And he dished four assists. But he played just 17 minutes and missed far too many easy ones inside.
7 – Christian Braun — Two points on 0-for-5 shooting with one rebound and one assist is not the kind of production you hope to get from a guy who was on the floor for 33 minutes.
8 – Tristan Enaruna — Had a golden opportunity to step up and play a bigger role with Braun and Agbaji struggling, but did not grasp it. Missed all three shots he attempted in just 12 minutes.
9 – Tyon Grant-Foster – KU coach Bill Self talked this week about wanting to get Grant-Foster in the game more. And he did. But the juco transfer, who misfired on the two 3-point tries he attempted, wound up in his usual role of single-digit minutes and did not make much of an impact when he was out there.
