Statistics aren't required to know that Devonte' Graham was Kansas' best basketball player this past season, but here is a look at how many times each player had at least a share of the team lead in each of the five major statistical categories:

Silvio De Sousa
0 4 0 0 1 5

Interestingly, Kansas had an outright scoring leader in each of its 39 games. Newman led the team in scoring in 2 of 31 regular-season games and 6 of 8 postseason contests.

De Sousa, who had three DNP by coach's decision, played in 12 regular-season games and all eight postseason games. All four of the games in which he at least shared the rebounding lead came in the postseason, not surprising considering he reached double digits in minutes just twice in the regular season.

Vick led the Jayhawks in scoring in three of the team's first nine games and then never again.
