Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Udoka Azubuike contributed 30 points in 37 combined minutes and delivered a good chunk of KU’s highlights in this one, from behind-the-back passes in transition to monster flush after monster flush on alley-oops from teammates.
Although he has progressed slowly throughout his Kansas career, the arrived-in-Lawrence-at-age-16-and-still-is-just-19 Mykhailiuk too often has allowed himself to fall into the role of jump shooter and little else. Not in this one.
To a man, the players who spoke with the media following Sunday’s victory said rebounding was one of the team’s major points of emphasis against the Hornets. And that showed from the opening minute of the game to the end.
“Well, the thing about Josh, he gets himself in trouble, in my opinion, when he dances with the ball too much,” Self began. “There’s only really two guys on our team that have the freedom, in my opinion, to dance with the ball, and that would be Frank (Mason) and Devonté (Graham). With Sherron (Collins) back in the day, we let the ball stick with him, because he was so good off the bounce, but most other guys we’ve had have been ball-movers or straight-line drivers. And Josh will be much better at dancing with the ball when he learns to drive the ball straight lines and force help. Because a lot of times in high school, that was how they played — isolation, dance with it to go get your own shot. I’d rather drive it downhill.”
“I told ‘Mari’ I knew I’d miss him. I didn’t know I’d miss him this much,” Self said of the 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward, who averaged 2.9 points and 3.2 rebounds a game as a fifth-year senior rotation player last season.
“We’ve always been blessed to be a program that could run four bigs out there and foul trouble wasn’t an issue, that kind of stuff. That’s not going to be the case this year.”
“Josh is everything as advertised in our eyes,” Self said. “He’s got a chance to be one of the elite players in the country as a freshman.”
