Graham catches fire late to top ratings vs. West Virginia
1 - Devonte’ Graham: Scored 14 of his 18 points in the final 6:56, when he made four 3-pointers. Made some terrific dribble moves to free himself for a couple of them. Has made multiple 3-pointers in eight consecutive games. Big night came on one-year anniversary of outplaying Buddy Hield in Norman.
2 - Frank Mason: Made 16 of 18 free throws, including the pair that sent the game into overtime. Made just 3 of 13 shots and 2 of 6 3-pointers, but ended up with 24 points and is averaging 20.2.
3 - Josh Jackson: Showed such great quickness getting to the rim, only to have his shots bounce out. He had six turnovers, but almost balanced that ledger with five steals. Produced his ninth double-double and fifth in the past six games with 14 points and 11 rebounds.
4 - Landen Lucas: Had a rough night at the free-throw line, making just 2 of 7, dropping his season percentage to .591. But on a night so many teammates missed shots at the rim, his presence came in handy and he slammed home two of the misses. Totaled eight points, 13 rebounds, two blocks and two steals. Had five offensive rebounds. Had a plus-minus of plus-22.
5 - Lagerald Vick: Shot 4 for 4 in a first half in which no other Kansas player made more than one field goal. Finished with 14 points, 10 in the first half, two assists and a steal.
6 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Fouled out in 21 minutes after totaling four points and three rebounds.
7 - Mitch Lightfoot: Played eight minutes and totaled three rebounds and two blocked shots.
8 - Dwight Coleby: Played two minutes, scored on a put-back slam and punctuated it with a glare into the camera.
9 - Carlton Bragg: He fouled out in 18 scoreless minutes and had one rebound. Had a plus-minus of minus-14. Nothing can be said that would not be drowned out by those loud-talking numbers, so we’ll let the numbers do the talking. I'm going to change the subject before I sever my tongue from biting it so hard.
