1 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Caught fire catching-and-shooting from deep in the corner, dribbled into buckets, got up high on a slam and generally showed off the tools that NBA scouts find intriguing on his way to career-high 23 points (9 of 11 field goals, 4 of 5 threes). Smooth operator.
2 - Landen Lucas: Played just 14 minutes, time enough to produce career-high 16 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots. Made 6 of 7 field goals.
3 - Perry Ellis: I think I saw him make a spin move into a jump hook on the right block, but I’m not sure because I blinked. What’s a defender to do? He has such a strong game, beginning with how swiftly he races down the court. Made 8 of 12 field goals and scored 21 points.
4 - Jamari Traylor: Hustled all-out to dominate the offensive boards in the first half, demoralizing the Governors. Scoreless, he played big with nine rebounds and two blocked shots in 18 minutes.
5 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Hit his first NCAA Tournament three-pointer on the game’s first possession. Finished with 14 points in 19 minutes. Made more field goals (5 of 10) in this one than previous four tourney games (4 of 16).
6 - Devonté Graham: Scoreless, he was more concerned with setting up teammates, which he did with six assists. Did not turn it over.
7 - Frank Mason III: Spring didn’t quite seem to be 100 percent there. Hip? Foot? Or maybe the competitive fires weren’t stoked because they didn’t need to be for Kansas to cruise to easy victory. Had nine points, four assists and one turnover.
8 - Cheick Diallo: Didn’t get in until late in the game and was extremely active, producing nine points, four rebounds and a blocked shot.
9 - Lagerald Vick: Perfect shooting day from inside the arc, outside it and at the free-throw line on way to seven points in 10 minutes. Also mixed in two assists, a steal and a blocked shot.
10 - Carlton Bragg: Four points, three rebounds, an assist and a steal. And, but of course, three personal fouls in nine minutes.
11 - Brannen Greene: Playing through a sore back, Greene hustled his way to four assists and three steals. Feed to Diallo for a dunk was a beauty.
12 - Hunter Mickelson: Played five minutes, committed four fouls and made 1 of 5 shots. Nobody could accuse him of spectating on the floor.

1 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Missed his final shot when a drive trickled out. Otherwise he would have had a perfect shooting day. He made 6 of 7 shots, including 5 of 5 three-pointers. His pull-up jumper inside the semi-circle reeked of confidence. Looks more sure of himself than ever. All in all, not bad for an 18-year-old basketball player.
2 - Frank Mason III: Hustled down a loose ball to keep it from going out of bounds and made the pass that was available, a behind-the-back beauty to Devonté Graham, who fed Wayne Selden Jr., who completed the play with a reverse layup. Also made 3 of 5 three-pointers on way to 16-point, two-steal day.
3 - Jamari Traylor: Made play of the day when he ripped away offensive rebound on missed free throw and immediately fed Svi for a three. Produced three points, three rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot in 13 energetic minutes off the bench.
4 - Devonté Graham: Four assists against just one turnover and two steals compensated for off day from three (1 for 4). Showed serious quickness in finishing drive to hoop through traffic.
5 - Landen Lucas: Produced seven points and eight rebounds in 20 minutes.
6 - Cheick Diallo: Hustled his way to two points, six rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal in 13 minutes.
7 - Perry Ellis: Couldn’t get shots to drop (4 of 13) and scored just eight points with five boards in 28 minutes.
8 - Wayne Selden Jr.: Slumping shooters go through phases that leave them aiming instead of shooting. Selden’s in one of those phases. He made 1 of 8 field goals, 1 of 4 free throws and missed all four three-point attempts. Didn’t show great shot selection in this one.
9 - Carlton Bragg: Turned beautiful post feed from Brannen Greene into two points and picked up a rebound in five-minute run.
10 - Brannen Greene: Limited to three minutes, he made the only two shots he took, both free throws.

1 - Kelly Oubre Jr.: Freshman showed that postseason basketball is a game he enjoys by scoring a career-high 25 points and carrying Kansas. It was not just the point total that was impressive about Oubre's day. He played smart, aggressive basketball and was unafraid all afternoon.
2 - Landen Lucas: Once upon a time, 13 points and 7 boards would've have seemed like made up numbers for Lucas. Now, those seem like the norm. Hit 6 of 7 shots and added 3 blocks, all in just 24 minutes.
3 - Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk: Scored just two points and added two assists but played 15 minutes and gave KU coach Bill Self an option when both Brannen Greene and Wayne Selden struggled. Svi was as aggressive and confident as he's been in weeks and even started the second half.
4 - Frank Mason III: Stats were far from spectacular — six points, five rebounds, two assists, two turnovers — but did play 37 minutes and added three steals. Self said he would've liked to see more energy from his point guard and floor leader. So I suspect that's what you'll see on Friday.
5 - Wayne Selden Jr.: As per usual, Selden did enough of the little things — an assist here, a steal there, an offensive rebound there — to impact the game, but his bottom line was still average at best. Scored seven points (on 3-of-6 shooting) and grabbed four boards but also turned it over four times and missed two of three free throw attempts.
6 - Devonté Graham: Recorded four assists and had no turnovers in 24 minutes and made at least three or four other really nice passes that could have become assists had the shots fallen.
7 - Jamari Traylor: Four fouls limited him to 20 minutes, which is a shame because Traylor was 3-for-3 from the floor and also blocked three shots. He's gotta find a way to stay on the floor.
8 - Hunter Mickelson: Not his best night. Two points and one rebound in eight minutes. Did record a block, but also air-balled a baseline jumper.
9 - Brannen Greene: Two points, three turnovers and 13 minutes. Not the kind of bounce-back performance you're looking for from a guy who sat in street clothes due to a suspension the last time out. Greene looks sped up and uncertain with just about everything he's doing right now.
