Positives

  • Yves Missi continues his ascension as one of the best big men in college basketball.  The 6-11 freshman outplayed Hunter Dickinson.  He finished with 21 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks.  He was ready for the moment.  He also hit 9-12 from the foul line.  
  • Miro Little was terrific in his 19 minutes.  He only scored 3 points, but he played with confidence, moved the ball well, grabbed 6 rebounds, played solid defense and showed some hops on a dunk from a pass from Yves Missi.
  • We got some great looks to send the game to OT from 3.  These close games should pay dividends when it is win or go home in March.  
  • The defense was solid.  Consider this, you turn the ball over 21 times which led to some easy opportunities for Kansas and yet you still hold the Jayhawks under 1 point per possession. 
  • Outrebounded the Jayhawks 42-25, loved the activity from Walter, Dennis and Lohner on the glass. 

Negatives

  • Looked really nervous early on, the turnovers were awful, 21 against a team that doesn’t pressure the ball much.  We need to get mentally and physically stronger in that area.  
  • Josh Ojianwuna gave us a pretty rough 8 minutes with no stats other than 4 turnovers.  
  • Hated to not have Langston Love, that was a big loss to us but loved seeing Miro’s contributions.
