With the big win in Norman, it’s time for the player ratings once more time. Let’s get to it.
10 - Magical, extraterrestrial, godlike
9 - Outstanding, truly fantastic, utterly brilliant
8 - Great, excellent
7 - Good
6 - Slightly above average, close to ‘Good’
5 - Slightly below average
4 - Poor
3 - Terrible
2 – Disastrous
Frank Mason- 6.5- Fouled out for the first time that I can remember, but other than that, had a solid game. He has 14 points on four of seven shooting from the floor and five of six from the line.
Wayne Selden- 5- Disappeared from the game, and his rating would be much lower if he hadn’t made that three in the late stages. Played some decent defense though.
Devonte’ Graham- 10- Devonte’ single handedly gives KU a chance for 12 straight, and he earns the first ever 10 in the player ratings. His six of nine from three-point land was enormous. No other way to say it. Bill Self called it one of the best performances of a KU player in his tenure. I can’t disagree.
Perry Ellis- 6- Got into foul trouble early and totaled 10 points for the game, none in the second half.
Landen Lucas- 7- Ten rebounds for Lucas and while he didn’t do as much offensively (compared to recent games), the big guys from OU never got things going. A lot of that was down to Lucas’ effort defensively. Took a huge charge late in the game.
Brannen Greene- 6- Picked up some fouls where moving his feet would’ve prevented it, Brannen is clearly back on Bill Self’s good side as he was the first and sometimes only option off the bench.
Jamari Traylor- 6- Got called for a foul while hitting the deck undeservedly and made a key free throw at the end. How good of a teammate is Jamari when he was visibly frustrated that he was the one that had to take the foul shots late? Pretty good, that’s for sure.
Carlton Bragg- 6- Made a mid-range jumper in the first half and didn’t play in the second.
Cheick Diallo- 6- Cheick had four rebounds in the first half and didn’t play in the second.
Now, Kansas is back on pace to get their 12th straight Big XII title. KU gets Oklahoma State next in Allen Fieldhouse.
