Kelly Oubre Scores Career High in Kansas win over Lafayette

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

There sure was not a lot of defense played, but Kansas showed up big time offensively in Kansas's win over Lafayette. Te Jayhawks started and finished strong, but Lafayette had a nice 8 or 9 minute stretch in the second half where they basically couldn't miss.

The big story on the Jayhawks' side was the emergence of Kelly Oubre. The Freshman had a career high 23 points and added 10 rebounds for his first career double double. He shot well from three (4-7), showed effectiveness at driving to the hoop, and took care of the ball.

Elsewhere, Frank Mason had probably his best game of the season, even when considering opponent. The sophomore had just 1 turnover on the afternoon.

The other big event was Cliff Alexander going down late in the second half after twisting his ankle. The fall, plus his reaction, had me worried that he was going to be lost for at least a couple games, but fortunately he hopped up and was able to continue.

We'll have much more in tomorrow's (semi) statistical recap, but good win for the Jayhawks as they go into the holiday break.
