1 – Marcus Garrett – Added a serious dose of offense to his always-solid defensive effort and recorded a career-high 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting. Easily the best all-around game of his career and KU needed every ounce of it.

2 – Lagerald Vick – Led everyone with 21 points on 5-of-8 shooting from 3-point range and was ultra-aggressive going to the rim early in the game. His shot is back and his head appears to have come with it.

3 – Dedric Lawson – A quiet first half because of foul trouble gave way to what we’ve become used to seeing — the Kansas offense playing through Lawson and the KU junior putting up points as a result.

4 – Devon Dotson – Matched Texas, athlete for athlete, and tallied 10 hard-earned points to go along with five rebounds and five assists. More important than any of those numbers, though, was the big ZERO in the turnover column.

5 – Ochai Agbaji – Easily his worst of the three games he’s played, but we’re founding out that Agbaji at his worst is still better than a lot of people at their best. Four points, four rebounds, 2 assists and a steal in 25 minutes. He once again was out there at the end and, after the game, KU coach Bill Self tossed around the T word — trust — when talking about what he likes most about Agbaji.

6 – Quentin Grimes – Made 2 of 5 from 3-point range, including one in the opening minutes of the game, but did little else and had one of KU’s four turnovers.

7 – David McCormack – Made his eight minutes count with pure effort and even a little polish. Grabbed three offensive rebounds and scored what turned out to be a big bucket inside during the second half.

8 – Charlie Moore – Missed his lone shot in three minutes, but did set up Mitch Lightfoot inside with a nice dime.

9 – Mitch Lightfoot – Missed the two free throws that came from Moore’s would-be assist and recorded one foul in 6 minutes.

Season Standings:

1 - Dedric Lawson – 128

2 - Devon Dotson – 126

3 - Lagerald Vick – 103

4 - Marcus Garrett – 94

5 - Quentin Grimes – 79

6 - Mitch Lightfoot – 62

7 - Charlie Moore – 53

8 - David McCormack – 42

9 - K.J. Lawson – 41

10 – Ochai Agbaji – 21

Note: Injured center Udoka Azubuike had recorded 50 points through KU’s first 13 games of the season and freshman Ochai Agbaji did not start playing until Game 15.

Freshman point guard sets the tone in KU’s 73-68 win at Baylor

1 – Devon Dotson – Set the tone for the night with a stellar start and bounced back nicely from a rough game against TCU. Finished with 14 points on four shots and added five rebounds and five assists in 33 minutes.

2 – Dedric Lawson – Better than his final numbers of 17 points and 3 rebounds show but not as good as he needs to be. He didn’t do much on the glass, but his five steals and five blocks helped make up for an off night rebounding.

3 – Lagerald Vick – Hit 6-of-8 from 3-point range to move past 1,000 points for his career (on his birthday, no less), but also turned it over four times and was quiet in most other areas, including on the glass, where he grabbed just three rebounds.

4 – Ochai Agbaji – Scored 10 points in 21 minutes, making four of the five shots he attempted. He continued to bring activity and athleticism to the floor, enough that KU coach Bill Self said after the game that Agbaji quickly was becoming one of KU’s better players.

5 – Marcus Garrett – Four points, three rebounds, four assists and a block in 25 minutes might not wow you. But he was the catalyst for everything KU did defensively

6 – Quentin Grimes – Grabbed six rebounds in 27 minutes, which helped make up for his 2-of-7 shooting night. Also chipped in 2 of KU’s season-high 11 blocks.

7 – K.J. Lawson – Double-digit minutes for the second game in a row, the older Lawson wasn’t great but he did enough to explain why he was out there.

8 – Mitch Lightfoot – The shot to the mouth limited his minutes and may have hurt KU in the rebounding department. We’ll give Lightfoot the benefit of the doubt here for the two boards and one block he did get in 3 minutes on the floor.

9 – David McCormack – Played just six minutes and picked up one foul.

10 – Charlie Moore – With most of his minutes going to Agbaji, Moore played just second minutes and didn’t do anything to earn more, misfiring on both shot attempts, including one from 3-point range.

Season Standings:

1 - Dedric Lawson – 121

2 - Devon Dotson – 120

3 - Lagerald Vick – 95

4 - Marcus Garrett – 85

5 - Quentin Grimes – 75

6 - Mitch Lightfoot – 61

7 - Charlie Moore – 51

8 - K.J. Lawson – 41

9 - David McCormack – 39

10 – Ochai Agbaji – 16

Jayhawks old and new lead ratings after 77-68 win over No. 25 TCU

Kansas forward Dedric Lawson (1) drives against TCU center Kevin Samuel (21) and TCU guard Desmond Bane (1) during the first half, Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019 at Allen Fieldhouse.

1 - Dedric Lawson – Dropped 31 points and 14 rebounds and played big and tough all night long. Shot 10 of 19 from the floor and even hit two 3-pointers, in four tries, while adding three steals in 35 minutes.

2 – Ochai Agbaji – The seven points and four rebounds only begin to scratch the surface on the freshman’s impact in this one. He played 25 minutes

3 – Marcus Garrett – Didn’t shoot great (just 3-of-8), but had a couple of key baskets, played his usual solid defense and did not commit a single turnover in 35 minutes, many of them as KU’s point guard.

4 – Mitch Lightfoot – Always known for his hustle and effort, Lightfoot took it to an even higher level on Wednesday and it showed. That’s leadership and a guy doing everything he can to help his team.

5 – Devon Dotson – Played big at the end but limited minutes in the first half. Not his best night by any means, but made some incredibly important plays down the stretch, none more highlight-worthy than his big time block of a driving layup attempt by TCU senior Alex Robinson.

6 – K.J. Lawson – Self said after the game that Wednesday’s effort was arguably K.J. Lawson’s best as a Jayhawk. Played hard, with energy, attacked the offensive glass and may have earned more minutes in the future as a result.

7 – Lagerald Vick – Even with all of the good things on his stat line — 50 percent shooting, 4 rebounds, four assists, 36 minutes — it’s hard to look past that ugly number in the turnover column — 6.

8 – Quentin Grimes – Wasn’t his night, but KU didn’t need him. Scored just five points on five shots and played 16 minutes.

9 – Charlie Moore – Had an assist to Agbaji that came off of a steal of his own in 4 minutes.

10 – David McCormack – In a game that many expected to deliver big minutes with Udoka Azubuike out, McCormack played just one minute.

Season Standings:

1 - Dedric Lawson – 112

2 - Devon Dotson – 110

3 - Lagerald Vick – 87

4 - Marcus Garrett – 80

5 - Quentin Grimes – 70

6 - Mitch Lightfoot – 58

7 - Udoka Azubuike – 50

7 - Charlie Moore – 50

9 - David McCormack – 37

9 - K.J. Lawson – 37

11 – Ochai Agbaji – 9

Grimes tops ratings on a brutal day for No. 5 Kansas in 77-60 loss at Iowa State

1 – Quentin Grimes – The only Kansas player who actually looked good in this one, Grimes finished with 19 points and six rebounds on 50 percent shooting in 31 minutes.

2 – Devon Dotson – Eight points, seven rebounds and three assists looked good. The five turnovers — of 24 for the team — did not. Still, Dotson was one of the few Kansas players who found any kind of success on Saturday.

3 – Marcus Garrett – Attacked the rim and seemed to have some understanding of what needed to be done. Didn’t do much in the way of making it happen, though.

4 – Dedric Lawson – Scored and rebounded but didn’t play strong enough and had a rough first half.

5 – David McCormack – Didn’t check in until late in the first half and didn’t play a ton overall. But did go all-out while he was in there.

6 – Mitch Lightfoot – Didn’t offer enough to make a real impact but also didn’t play enough to be responsible for too much of the meltdown.

7 - Lagerald Vick – Opened the game with three turnovers in the first few minutes and kept going downhill from there. Looked out to lunch way too much and again appeared to play with a me-first mentality at times.

8 – Charlie Moore – Another bad offensive game for the backup point guard, who did little to help KU’s struggling offense yet still played double-digit minutes.

9 – K.J. Lawson – Again played too little to move any higher in the rankings, although that nearly was a good thing for his chances at a higher ranking on Saturday. Doesn’t play more because he too often is unaware of what to do on defense.

Season Standings:

1 - Devon Dotson – 104

2 - Dedric Lawson – 102

3 - Lagerald Vick – 83

4 - Marcus Garrett – 72

5 - Quentin Grimes – 67

6 - Mitch Lightfoot – 51

7 - Udoka Azubuike – 50

8 - Charlie Moore – 48

Lawson’s double-double leads Kansas, ratings in hard-fought, 70-63 win over Oklahoma

1 – Dedric Lawson – Didn’t deliver good shooting numbers, but did deliver big time buckets and carried the Kansas offense for portions of this one en route to another double-double of 13 points and 15 rebounds.

2 – Devon Dotson – So good attacking and getting downhill, he put pressure on the Sooners all night and did not succumb to the ridiculous ball pressure he faced while running the show for KU’s offense. Scored 16 tough points and added 4 rebounds and 4 steals in just 27 minutes because of foul trouble.

3 – Marcus Garrett – Played hard and smart all night and set up teammates for easy shots and in the perfect position.

4 – Quentin Grimes – Grimes turned in a terrific first half and then resorted to making the same, old mistakes in the second, most notably rushing his shots. Grimes was 5-of-7 for 11 points in 15 minutes in the first half. For the game, he finished with 14 points and shot 1-of-6 from 3-point range.

5 – Udoka Azubuike – Tallied eight points and six rebounds in 14 first-half minutes. But that was by far the best part of his night. Sat for long stretches of the second half and KU looked good with him on the bench. Finished with 8 points and 9 rebounds to go along with 2 blocks.

6 – Lagerald Vick – Hit some clutch 3-pointers and played with an edge, especially after misfiring or making a mistake. Not nearly his best game, but KU doesn’t win without him showing them how to fight. 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals and 4 turnovers.

7 – Charlie Moore – Way too out of control driving to the rim, when he should’ve passed more often than he shot. Also missed two important free throws late that gave OU life late.

8 – Mitch Lightfoot – Played just four minutes and grabbed one offensive rebound.

9 – David McCormack – Got early opportunities in both halves, but wasn’t on and played just six minutes.

10 – K.J. Lawson – Checked in for a minute in the second half but was back on the bench before anybody could even realize he was out there.

Season Standings:

1 - Devon Dotson – 96

1 - Dedric Lawson – 96

3 - Lagerald Vick – 80

4 - Marcus Garrett – 65

5 - Quentin Grimes – 58

KU’s biggest player tops ratings after big game in 87-63 win vs. Eastern Michigan

Kansas center Udoka Azubuike was fouled while going up for a shot by Eastern Michigan's James Thompson IV.

Kansas center Udoka Azubuike was fouled while going up for a shot by Eastern Michigan's James Thompson IV. by Mike Gunnoe

1 – Udoka Azubuike – So strong in his return to the floor after missing four games and most of a fifth with a right ankle injury. After starting in this one, Azubuike used his big body to record 23 points and 9 rebounds in 20 minutes.

2 – Devon Dotson – Did not let a rough ending to his last game carry over into this one. Dotson was solid from start to finish, racking up 15 points, 4 assists and 3 steals in 28 minutes.

3 – Dedric Lawson – Returned to the 4 and immediately started racking up assists again. Not the normal loud night in the points (8) and rebounds (5) departments that we’re used to seeing, but KU didn’t need him to score big to win this one.

4 – Lagerald Vick – Didn’t do anything overly spectacular but didn’t do anything worth groaning about either. A solidly quiet game for the KU senior, who missed all five of his 3-point attempts but dished four assists to make up for it.

5 – Marcus Garrett – As nice of an option as he was in the starting lineup with Azubuike out, KU coach Bill Self has to love seeing him on the bench again, too. Garrett’s such a steady and calming influence when he comes into the game and Self now can sub him for a guard or a forward.

6 – Quentin Grimes – The Arizona State game was a step forward in playing aggressive basketball. And this one was a step forward in not rushing his shot. Finished with 16 points on 4-of-6 shooting (2-of-4 from 3-point range) and it looks like the light is coming on, but he still had too many turnovers.

7 – David McCormack – Continues to emerge as a regular option in the rotation. Didn’t play a ton of meaningful minutes (17 overall, but about half that when the game was out of hand), but did play early and was good on the glass.

8 – K.J. Lawson – Still a little quick to pull the trigger on guarded 3-pointers, but gave some decent hustle minutes and hit two triples at the end to go along with 4 rebounds and 3 assists.

9 – Mitch Lightfoot – Played hard but not always with poise. Did a good job of gathering himself and going after his own misses for a couple of second-half buckets. Played as hard as anyone on the floor in the game's final four minutes and had his padded rebounding total (6) to show for it.

10 – Charlie Moore – As many turnovers as points (3) for the majority of the game and opened the game pretty out of control on both ends.

Season Standings:

1 - Devon Dotson – 87

2 - Dedric Lawson – 86

3 - Lagerald Vick – 75

4 - Marcus Garrett – 57

5 - Quentin Grimes – 51

Lawson’s 30-point night tops ratings, can’t save Kansas

1 – Dedric Lawson – Easy call here. The KU junior was the best player on the floor for either team and it wasn’t particularly close. Monster first half of 18 points and 8 rebounds led to another double-double on a night when KU really needed it.

2 – Lagerald Vick – Came out firing and hit a handful of clutch buckets along the way. His veteran status and experience in games like these no doubt helped keep the Jayhawks calm throughout the night until the very end when it all fell apart.

3 – Devon Dotson – He wasn’t in the same category as Lawson, but close. Any time Dotson wasn’t on the floor, KU looked like a much different team and the KU freshman hit a few big time 3-pointers in this one, as well. Committed five turnovers and had the tough gaffe at the end that cost KU.

4 – Quentin Grimes – This was Grimes’ best game in a while. He still made a bunch of mistakes and misfired on plenty of shots, but he competed and played with the right mentality of attacking whenever possible. Still, KU needs to get more production from him. Simply playing hard or the right way can't be enough.

5 – Marcus Garrett – Made a few mistakes and looked a little overwhelmed at times, but still made plenty of proper plays in key moments, be them attacking the basket, hitting free throws or hounding someone on the defensive end.

6 – David McCormack – Was still sped up at times, but not nearly as much — or as bad — as in his first seven or eight games of the season. Finished with 2 points and 4 rebounds in 11 minutes.

7 – Charlie Moore – Played some pretty big minutes with Dotson fighting foul trouble and ASU freshman Luguentz Dort hounding him. Chipped in 3 points and 2 steals but also turned it over twice in 12 minutes.

8 – Mitch Lightfoot – Brought energy and effort, but never found his flow or rhythm.

9 – K.J. Lawson – Air-mailed a couple of 3-point attempts and had a couple of out-of-position moments that led to fouls.

Season Standings:

1 - Devon Dotson – 78

2 - Dedric Lawson – 78

3 - Lagerald Vick – 68

Another double-double by Dedric Lawson earns top spot after 89-53 win over South Dakota

1 – Dedric Lawson – Another night, another double-double for KU’s leading scorer, this time 16 points and 14 rebounds. His seventh such outing of the year was one of his least memorable, but the three steals he contributed illustrate his effort all over the floor.

2 – Mitch Lightfoot – Easily KU’s best player in the first half after converting a pair of offensive rebounds into old-fashioned three-point plays. Finished with 7 points, 5 rebounds and a block in 13 minutes and further cement his role as a steady hand when KU needs one.

3 – Devon Dotson – So strong and quick getting to the rim. Not his best night everywhere, but South Dakota did not have anyone who could handle his drive and the freshman’s 6 assists — after just six in his last three games combined — were a great sign of him refocusing his efforts on getting others involved.

4 – Charlie Moore – Hit a couple of 3-pointers on a night when Kansas couldn’t buy one and overcame a terrible start to score 18 points on 6-of-9 3-point shooting in 21 minutes.

5 – Marcus Garrett – Hit the glass, grabbed a couple of steals and hounded South Dakota’s most effective perimeter player when his teammates could not. 5 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals in 28 minutes.

6 – David McCormack – Played a few more minutes than in recent games and showed flashes of what he can do. Still never looked fully settled in and finished with 12 points and 6 rebounds in 17 minutes.

7 – Lagerald Vick – Not his best game offensively but he played hard throughout and followed his own miss on two separate occasions for second-chance opportunities.

8 – Quentin Grimes – Aggressive offensively to open both halves, but the quick starts never materialized into much more. Had he not been in a slump entering the game, this would’ve looked like little more than a so-so night.

9 – K.J. Lawson – Came in firing and didn’t hit. Played too little to factor into things that much.

Lagerald Vick bounce-back earns top spot in ratings after tough, 74-71 win over Villanova

Kansas guard Lagerald Vick (24) pulls up for a three from the wing over Villanova guard Collin Gillespie (2) during the first half, Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas guard Lagerald Vick (24) pulls up for a three from the wing over Villanova guard Collin Gillespie (2) during the first half, Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018 at Allen Fieldhouse. by Nick Krug

1 – Lagerald Vick – Earns the top spot because of the degree of difficulty of so many of his shots. Bounced back from a bad week in a big way with 29 points and 7 rebounds in 39 minutes, including 9-of-15 from the floor. Also flashed that killer confidence and mean streak that this team needs.

2 – Dedric Lawson – So good in the first half and so solid with his positioning. Villanova had no one who could guard him and Lawson took full advantage of that for yet another double-double, 28 points and 12 rebounds in 38 minutes.

3 – Devon Dotson – Hounded Villanova’s Collin Gillespie all game and came up with a couple of huge buckets and free throws down the stretch to ice the tough victory.

4 – Marcus Garrett – Forget his offense, which came in doses. It was Garrett’s defense, both making life miserable for Eric Paschall and by hounding opposing ball-handlers with his quick hands. Four steals, four rebounds and three assists more than made up for scoring just one point.

5 – Mitch Lightfoot - Numbers weren’t as good today as they were against New Mexico State, but his impact was. KU had some of their best stretches with Lightfoot on the floor and the junior could quietly be carving out that young Landen Lucas role.

6 – K.J. Lawson – Played 14 minutes because of Grimes’ struggled but didn’t do anything spectacular. Does have a knack for getting his brother the ball in good scoring position.

7 – Charlie Moore – Not his best day. Missed his only shot, turned it over three times and fouled three times in 18 minutes.

8 – Quentin Grimes – Another rough, rough day for Grimes, who attacked a couple of times but spent most of the day a step slow and turning the ball over.

9 – David McCormack – Only action came at the end of the first half, when he didn’t have time or opportunity to do much.

Lightfoot’s strong night tops ratings as KU survives New Mexico State

Kansas forward Mitch Lightfoot (44) turns for a shot over New Mexico State forward Eli Chuha (22) during the first half on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018 at Sprint Center.

Kansas forward Mitch Lightfoot (44) turns for a shot over New Mexico State forward Eli Chuha (22) during the first half on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018 at Sprint Center. by Nick Krug

1 – Mitch Lightfoot – So good in so many ways. Aggressively attacked the rim, competed on the glass, brought energy and effort and even took a couple of his signature charges. No chance KU wins this game without him. The guess here is that Self will call him “our best big in the game” during his postgame comments. Seven points, six rebounds and a block in 18 high-quality minutes.

2 – Dedric Lawson – Had every opportunity in the world to own this game and got bumped, pushed or poked too often to take full advantage of it. Scored KU’s final 14 to save his night and the Jayhawks, and, you guessed it, wound up with another double-double... 20 points and 10 rebounds.

3 – Devon Dotson – Not his best game by any means, but he attacked all night and played 39 minutes. Finished with eight points and four rebounds with two assists and three turnovers.

4 – Marcus Garrett – The sophomore was the only Jayhawk who could — or would — score for a good chunk of this game. And Garrett played his typically solid defense, as well.

5 – Charlie Moore – Terrific start, in a starting role no less, and was thrown out there as an answer to sluggish guard play throughout the game.

6 – Lagerald Vick – Didn’t start for a second consecutive game and struggled to get into the game from there. Had some positive moments in the second half — a couple of assists and a couple of important shots — but overall struggled for the second game this week.

7 – Quentin Grimes – After a terrific and aggressive start that netted five of KU's first 10 points, Grimes melted into the floor and disappeared the rest of the way. The freshman did not score another point and also grabbed just one rebound while committing four turnovers.

8 – K.J. Lawson – Had a couple of good moments early, including a 3-pointer in rhythm and an assist to his brother, but played just 4 minutes.

9 – David McCormack – Got his crack but couldn’t do much with it. Still too sped up in a game where KU needed every bit of poise it could muster.

Season Standings:

1 - Devon Dotson – 56

2 - Dedric Lawson – 52
