1 - Josh Jackson: He’s getting better and he was awfully good in the first place. His sixth double-double and second in a row against a top 4 team included 23 points and 10 rebounds. Had two blocked shots in the first half. Pump-fake, drive and two-hand slam broke 64-64 tie and Kansas never trailed.

2 - Frank Mason: Played phenomenal defense at the end and drove to the lane so relentlessly to draw fouls, more than making up for an off shooting night. Made just 3 of 12 shots and 1 of 3 3-pointers, but was 12 for 12 from the line, had four rebounds, three steals, six assists and just two turnovers in 38 minutes. In a word, he’s a winner.

3 - Devonte’ Graham: Strong game on his way to 13 points on 5 of 9 shooting from the field and 3 of 6 from 3-point range.

4 - Landen Lucas: All five of his points came in the second half, as did 7 of 11 rebounds.

5 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Made 3 of 5 3-pointers and is shooting .423 on the season on them. Scored 11 points and is averaging 10.6.

6 - Mitch Lightfoot: Set up beautifully by Mason for an easy bucket and blocked two shots in a productive five minutes.

7 - Dwight Coleby: Scoreless in six minutes, he was made a couple of defensive mistakes, but he also had six rebounds.

8 - Lagerald Vick: Missed all four shots, including two 3-pointers, in a scoreless 14 minutes.

Kansas guard Frank Mason III (0) goes into the seats trying to save a ball during the first half, Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse.

1 - Dorance Armstrong: Had an 8-yard sack and four tackles. Always competes hard and has the talent to play against anybody.

2 - Khalil Herbert: Rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown. If enough blockers can mature during his career, he’ll gain many yards for Kansas. Knows how to bounce off tacklers and keep moving.

3 - Fish Smithson: Forced a fumble and had eight tackles.

4 - Marcquis Roberts: Credited with two pass breakups, a quarterback hurry and five tackles. Smart, gritty performer every week, aches and pains notwithstanding.

5 - Jeremiah Booker: Laid out for an impressive catch and 22-yard gain.

6 - Steven Sims: Caught two passes for 40 yards.

7 - Courtney Arnick: Had six tackles and a pass breakup.

8 - Tevin Shaw: Active and quick to the ball, he had five tackles.

9 - Mike Lee: Had eight tackles, one for a loss.

10 - DeeIsaac Davis: In on five tackles, including one in the backfield.

Kansas running back Khalil Herbert (10) gets around the Memphis line for a touchdown during the second quarter on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tenn.

Kansas running back Khalil Herbert (10) gets around the Memphis line for a touchdown during the second quarter on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tenn. by Nick Krug

1. Khalil Herbert – His first reception out of the backfield went for 35 yards. He followed that a while later with a 66-yard touchdown run down the left sideline, showing serious speed.

2. Dorance Armstrong – As fast as advertised, Armstrong had an active first half. Two of his three tackles for loss were sacks.

3. Damani Mosby – Made an impact early with sack, forced fumble and quarterback hurry.

4. Marcquis Roberts – He broke up a pass and had five tackles, four solo, two behind the line of scrimmage.

5. Ke'aun Kinner – Blocks were in short supply and he still managed to rush for 49 yards on 12 carries. He also gained 30 yards on two receptions.

6. LaQuvionte Gonzalez – Ball doesn’t have to be thrown right to him for him to come away with a catch. He went up high for one of his six catches that totaled 44 yards.

7. Courtney Arnick – Joe Dineen was lost for the game with a leg injury on the first series of the day and Arnick subbed with four tackles.

8. Isiah Bean – Fast, undersized true freshman defensive end picked up a tackle behind the line of scrimmage.

9. Osaze Ogbebor – Linebacker totaled four solo tackles.

10. Cole Moos – Averaged 46 yards on seven punts.

A first for the Keegan Ratings on a tough day for the Jayhawks

1 - No Selection: When Mark Mangino, once in a while, would say, “Defensive player of the week, so selection,” or, “Offensive player of the week, no selection,” or “Special teams player of the week, no selection,” I would think to myself, “Sombody must have played well.” Now I can relate.

2 - Wayne Selden: Made 4 of 5 three-pointers, but wasn’t able to exploit the much shorter Phil Forte closer to the basket. Missed a dunk and on another play, a break-away, he slowed himself down to set himself up for a dunk and missed when fouled. Did not get a single rebound in 33 minutes. Committed four turnovers and was without question as responsible as anybody for keeping KU in the game, hitting threes in clutch moments.

3 - Frank Mason: After big first half, had one point, one assist and one turnover in the final 20 minutes. In the last 57 seconds, he made just 1 of 3 free throws, missed a three and couldn’t finish through contact (no whistle) on a drive. Played terrific first half on his way to 10-point game with four assists, two turnovers and three steals. Didn’t get to the paint as often as he usually does, particularly in the first half.

4 - Perry Ellis: Made some nice offensive moves, but couldn’t finish at the rim well enough to score more than 10 points. Had 10 rebounds, but had he come down stronger with the ball could have had a few more. Forgettable double-double

5 - Brannen Greene: Oklahoma State made keeping him from shooting threes in the second half a big part of its focus and it worked. He made all three three-pointers in the first half, but missed both in the second half. Scored all 10 of his points in 13 first-half minutes. Looked as if he was too concerned with drawing a foul, rather than finishing through contact, on a shot in the final seconds. Needs to do a better job of keeping his man off the offensive glass. Had he done that better, he would have had more than six rebounds.

6 - Cliff Alexander: Did some nice bucket hanging for tip-ins in the first half, totaling eight points and four boards in 12 minutes. Four listless second-half minutes spelled the end to his day.

7 - Jamari Traylor: Hit the offensive boards, where he picked up four of his six rebounds, hard and had three steals, but looked rattled when handling the ball or passing it. Didn’t have any assists and had six turnovers.

8 - Landen Lucas: Had two rebounds, two personal fouls and one heck of a hustle play to save a possession in 12 minutes.

9 - Devonte Graham: Took a freight-train of a charge with a quick decision on the fly and tried to make things happen offensively, just couldn’t hit a shot or get to the paint. Scoreless in 14 minutes and had two turnovers to go with one assist and one steal. Missed all four shots, two from long range.

10 - Kelly Oubre: He’s at his best when he’s looking to make disruptive defensive plays and when crashing the offensive boards. He’s at his worst when in passive mode. In 14 minutes, scored one point and didn’t have an assist or a steal. Missed all three shots, two from three-point range.

Wiggins starts season on top of Keegan Ratings

1. Andrew Wiggins: Especially since the new rules will prohibit defenders from jumping into the lane at the last instant to take charges, Wiggins needs to look to drive more from the wing because his lightning first step, long strides and long reach make him ideally suited to abuse defenders wary about the endless whistles. He led KU with 16 points and added three steals.

2. Perry Ellis: He’s an underrated rebounder, so quick and explosive, and even blocked two shots, not his specialty. Attempted just five field goals but totaled 12 points and eight rebounds.

3. Tarik Black: Had eight points, seven rebounds and three personals in 21 minutes. A physical force inside, foul trouble might be a frequent companion.

4. Andrew White III: Made 3 of 5 field goals, scored 12 points and picked up four rebounds, but turned it over three times.

5. Wayne Selden: Had a strong first half, played some point guard, and contributed eight points and four assists in 28 minutes with just one turnover.

6. Joel Embiid: He attempted 10 free throws in 11 minutes and contributed nine points and four rebounds, but was on the receiving end of some passionate criticism from the bench for not always doing the right thing.

7. Frank Mason: Speedy, fearless guard encountered foul trouble and sat most of the first half. When he played, the team moved faster. Had five assists without a turnover. His jersey number matched his goal for turnovers on opening night. He’s going to have a strong KU career and become a fan favorite.

8. Conner Frankamp: Played the point and had five points, three rebounds, three assists and just one turnover. Made just 1 of 4 three-pointers, but that will be the exception for the undersized guard blessed with such a soft touch.

9. Jamari Traylor: Had four turnovers and four fouls in 20 minutes, but did block two shots and always hustles.

10. Brannen Greene: Played just three minutes and scored two points.

Season Standings:
1. Andrew Wiggins (10 points)
2. Perry Ellis (9 points)
3. Tarik Black (8 points)
4. Andrew White III (7 points)
5. Wayne Selden (6 points)
6. Joel Embiid (5 points)
7. Frank Mason (4 points)
8. Conner Frankamp (3 points)
9. Jamari Traylor (2 points)
10. Brannen Greene (1 point)
