No. 1 Kansas rolls against Kansas State

Kansas brings Svi Mykhailiuk, a legit NBA prospect, off the bench and he hits a few 3s in a blowout. Yes, he's a project but who else brings that kind of talent/potential off the bench?

Mason, Ellis connect as KU leads at half

Top-seeded Kansas is cruising past Kansas State at halftime of their Big 12 tourney game, thanks in part to plays like this where a Frank Mason III steal led to an easy Perry Ellis dunk.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Difficult to maintain an edge throughout March. But Frank Mason and Devonte' Graham won't let Kansas get complacent. Every team needs tough guys. Kansas has a few.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Devonte' Graham showcases the value of court awareness. He understands how and when to utilize his energy. Earlier in this half, he faked a pass on a fast break and finished with the layup. No hesitation, just decisions. Good, quick decisions. His mind works at exceptional speeds. Very high IQ.
