1 – Marcus Garrett – In addition to having the best final line of the bunch — 8 points, 7 assists and 4 rebounds in 28 minutes — Garrett was the one who helped settle the Jayhawks down in the early going, using his superior blend of size and athleticism to get to the rim over and over while Kansas was struggling to find a rhythm on offense.

2 – Ochai Agbaji – After two rough games in a row, Agbaji had a terrific first half that got both him and the Jayhawks going. Didn’t do much of anything in the second half, but Kansas did not need him to. His production should go down as enough to snap him out of his mini-slump.

3 – Udoka Azubuike – Would’ve been much higher if he did anything in the first half. Instead, he played just seven minutes, grabbed just one rebound and did not attempt a shot. That changed in the second half, when he hit 7 of 8 shots and completely dominated the game.

4 – Devon Dotson – Pushed the ball, was tenacious defensively and hit 7 of 12 shots to finish with a team-high 19 points. Those numbers — along with five rebounds — helped hide his one-assist night.

5 – Isaiah Moss – Made 5 of 7 from the floor and 3 of 4 from 3-point range, all while playing just 20 minutes and earning the starting nod in the second half.

6 – David McCormack – A rough start but a strong finish. And it was all about effort. McCormack finished with 10 points in 17 minutes, but grabbed just two rebounds.

7 – Christian Braun – Got a chance to run up and down and actually play and had some good moments. Just 3-of-9 from the floor and he still didn’t look completely comfortable, but did manage to score 7 points and grab 4 boards.

8 – Tristan Enaruna – Didn’t shoot it well, but played 21 minutes and grabbed two rebounds while dishing three assists and recording two blocks.

9 – Silvio De Sousa – Made 2 of the 3 shots he took, including an offensive-rebound put-back, but was out there just 11 minutes and only grabbed two rebounds total.

Enaruna was awful. Maybe he will step up against these old men from Utah.
