KU vs KSU: Plus/Minus


Plus/Minus for last night's game tells the big story fairly well, it also misses a few of the key moments.  K-State also does a good job of muddying the waters in all of their games and they did a pretty good job of doing that last night.  Cole Aldrich leads the team with a +11, followed closely by Brady Morningstar at +10 (more on him below).  Marcus Morris is our 3rd highest total at +4.  For K-State, Wally Judge leads the way with a +10.  Judge put on his big boy pants last night.  Rodney McGruder was second for the Wildcats with a +9 and Jacob Pullen checks in at +7.

  • Xavier Henry didn't play a great game by any means.  But- I was happy to see he only took 5 shots.  Him scoring more would be great, however if his shot isn't falling I like knowing that he's not forcing shots.
  • Team total of 32 is very low.  Very, very low when you remember they had an extra 5 minutes of basketball.  Like I said, K-State does a very good job of creating ugly games. 
  • Brady Morningstar and Marcus Morris will determine how far this team goes in March.  Morningstar had two key plays that stick out in my mind from last night.  The first play he stripped his man and the ball ends up in Aldrich's hands.  Basically a steal that Cole gets credited with.  The second was a tip out on a rebound.
