Collins tops Aldrich for No. 1 in Keegans
1. Sherron Collins: Gutsy drive to the hoop sealed it and completed his day back from leg cramps and a twisted ankle. Great clutch player did it again.
2. Cole Aldrich: Played 39 minutes, the last several with four fouls, and ruled the paint. His 18 points, 11 rebounds and three blocked shots came during a most aggressive performance.
3. Brady Morningstar: Played strong defense on Denis Clemente, had three steals, two assists and one turnover in 39 minutes. He attempted just five shots from the field and scored 14 points.
4. Marcus Morris: Established himself inside early and totaled 13 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out after playing 31 minutes.
5. Tyshawn Taylor: Horrible turnover prevented KU from clinching the game in regulation, but did a lot of things that contributed to the victory, not the least being hitting 8 of 9 free throws.
6. Markieff Morris: Misfired on all four free throws and went scoreless in 21 minutes, but did contribute six rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot without committing any turnovers.
7. Xavier Henry: Finesse player who turns the ball over too much played just 16 minutes because his style didn’t fit this game. For the most part, he wasn’t missed. He did hit two big shots late.
8. Tyrel Reed: Reached in to break up what could have been the winning bucket at the end of regulation. Had two points and an assist and did not turn it over in 10 minutes.
9. Thomas Robinson: Played less than a minute.
10. Jeff Withey: Checked in, threw a pass away, checked back out.
