Remy Martin the 'player of the game' as KU advances to Sweet 16
FORT WORTH, Tex. — Remy Martin beat Trey Alexander off the dribble with an explosive first step, one that Martin likely wouldn’t have been able to do this time last month. The guard drove left before faking a spin to his right. Before Alexander could even react to Martin’s fake spin he was already fading away into a jump shot.

Agbaji dove on the loose ball and secured it, giving KU a chance to score with six seconds on the shot clock. Remy Martin was forced into a tough shot and missed, but Agbaji was there again with a second-effort rebound, putting the ball back up and in.
