Aldrich edges out Xavier, Taylor for top spot
1. Cole Aldrich: Dominated with 17 points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots. Hook shot looked great.
2. Xavier Henry: Ultra-aggressive effort led to 24 points, six rebounds and 4 of 7 three-pointers.
3. Tyshawn Taylor: Rewarded his coach for returning him to the starting lineup and made 6 of 7 field goals. Had 17 points, six assists and two steals. Still needs to cut down on turnovers (three), but played under control most of the time.
4. Sherron Collins: Hit 3 of 7 three-point shots on the day he moved into a tie for the winningest player in KU history.
5. Markieff Morris: Other than five turnovers, he played a terrific game, totaling 11 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots.
6. Marcus Morris: Had five points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal.
7. Brady Morningstar: Took just one shot and was scoreless but did contribute two assists and two steals.
8. Tyrel Reed: Active defensively, but made just 1 of 4 shots.
9. Thomas Robinson: Came in, quickly turned it over with a terrible pass, put up an airball from close range, but as always hustled and hit the boards hard, picking up two offensive rebounds and a steal in six minutes.
10. Elijah Johnson: Had two points and two turnovers in five minutes.
11. Jeff Withey: Had a rough three minutes in some ways but did pick up two rebounds.
