Kansas vs. New Mexico Defensive Scoresheet

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

It feels like this game was forever ago, but due to the holidays we've obviously been backed up with some of this stuff. As always, if you need a refresher on what's going on you can read this post.

some brief notes:

  • Joel Embiid was incredible in this one. He bothered shooters, he double teamed and forced turnovers, he closed out on guards, etc. He was amazing.
  • It was a rough one for Andrew Wiggins, comparatively speaking, but he did guard Kendal Williams, who just had one of those games for New Mexico where he was going to score no matter what.
  • It was nice to see Naadir Tharpe have a good game defensively. The point guard not being a huge negative on that side of the ball is something Kansas is going to need if they want to be a top 10ish defensive team this year.
  • After a couple rough ones, Perry Ellis was back to being good on the defensive end. He had struggled a bit down low with guys, and I think having to move and get out on the perimeter a bit was good for him.
