Statistical Rearview: Kansas v La Salle

Is it just me, or are things pretty damn easy when it comes to Jayhawk basketball.  Sure it's La Salle but I continue to believe the competition in practice is better than the majority of the games we've played this year. Once again yesterday was a situation where when the lead became 10 it just went downhill from there for an overmatched opponent.  Thanks to Warden and his fanshot I'm going to avoid bashing the schedule, but I am looking forward to Michigan this week and a possible formal introduction of our new football coach to the fans.  On a side note Kansas fans, regardless of how you feel about the Gill hire...PLEASE give the man a standing O!!  We're likely going to have some football recruits in town for that game.




Kansas continues to win in almost every area as it pertains to the four factors of winning.  Most impressive...the field goal shooting percentage and the ability to take care of the basketball.

 


Statistically the Jayhawks defense clearly got the job done.  11 blocks point to a big reason why the Explorers were held to just 36% shooting from the field as La Salle was likely disrupted in their shooting efforts all night long.  Throw in a +10 rebounding margin and the Jayhawks were able to match a pretty good night from the three point line for the Explorers with one of their own.

HUGE game from Xavier Henry as he goes for 31 and continues to look more and more like a one and done type player with his ability to score anywhere on the floor.  Cole with a solid game and the Morri put together another performance displaying their improvement year over year.  Lastly, I'd challenge anyone to find a player impact chart from last year where this little Sherron Collins resulted in a win.  Not gonna happen.

 

Not a starter logging over 30 minutes in this one which is good to see.  Keep the legs fresh for later in the season when we might need to rely on some of them a little more.  Morri with 21 pts, 18 boards and 4 blocks.  Good production from the four spot.  Throw in a great game from Xavier, Cole getting into the offense and Tyshawn Taylor finding a bit of a groove and you've got a team that seems to be finding it's way to some consistency from the guys that need to show it.
