Easy pickins for the Jayhawks on Wednesday night. Radford isn't a bad group but Kansas put together a pretty solid game after struggling to find it's form in Los Angeles over the weekend. Game flow chart says this one was locked in with 8:52 to go in the 2nd half, but I'd argue Kansas probably locked this thing up when the score hit 25-13 at the 4:12 mark of the first half. From there it was smooth sailing for Kansas.
Kansas ran away with this one in every facet of the game. The four factors to winning show a better field goal efficiency, better rebounding and an outstanding job at taking care of the basketball. Even in terms of getting to the line where the Jayhawks appear to have fallen short, the stat is a little misleading. Blame it on the Jayhawks attempting a pretty staggering 70 field goals in this one. Anytime you take that many shots it's bound to make your % of getting to the line look pretty unimpressive.
Statistically in the game it's worth mentioning again that the Jayhawks took 70 field goal attempts in this one. That's a pretty high number. More impressive is it wasn't because they were missing a lot, they still shot over 50% from the field. Kansas did this by dominating the boards, taking care of the basektball and spreading the ball around. I'll admit I didn't get to watch much of this one, but on paper it looks like a game where things were clicking.

Colors!!! Plenty of them on the player impact chart and that's a good thing. Plenty of guys saw action tonight which means a lot of players impacting the chart. Impressive to me is Sherron and Tyshawn combining for 14 assists, that's pretty solid distribution from your point guard spot. Also Elijah Johnson and CJ Henry break into double figures with the added minutes in this one. Depth is a strength this year, night like tonight we get a chance to see the full menu.
Morri watch 2009-2010...32 minutes, 13 points, 5 rebounds. Must have been a night off for the twins. Minutes as a whole were pretty widely distributed by Coach Self in this one so nothing to be alarmed at, glad to see some of the other faces get a little PT and experience anyway.
