Travis Releford tops ratings; KU's point guards struggle

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/29/kansas-basketball-v-michigan-ncaa-sweet-16/97535/ **1. Travis Releford:** KU's best player in the NCAA Tournament fittingly was the Jayhawks' best player against Michigan. The senior was excellent in transition, locked down on Trey Burke when given that assignment and was aggressive attacking the rim. In his final game, the senior posted 16 points on ...

Travis Releford stellar on both ends against North Carolina

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/24/kansas-basketball-v-north-carolina/97435/ **1. Travis Releford:** Releford held North Carolina's leading scorer in conference play, Reggie Bullock, to a season-low-tying five points on 1-for-7 shooting. The senior Releford was just as good offensively, leading KU with 22 points on 9-for-13 shooting. No shot was bigger than his second-half three, which gave KU ...

Jeff Withey shines, KU guards struggle against WKU

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/22/kansas-basketball-v-western-kentucky/97373/ **1. Jeff Withey:** Easily Kansas' best player offensively and defensively. Withey once again feasted on a team that wasn't ready for his impact defensively, as he contributed seven of KU's nine blocks. The senior also was efficient when he received it in the post, scoring a game-high 17 points ...

Jeff Withey flummoxes Kansas State once again

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/16/kansas-basketball-v-kansas-state-big-12-tournament/97243/ **1. Jeff Withey:** After three games, Kansas State is still no closer to solving the defensive riddle that is Jeff Withey. Though KU's senior center had only one block, he altered numerous shots and was the big reason KSU made just 15 of 36 shots from two-point range (42 ...

Bench play a highlight for KU against Iowa State

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/15/ku-basketball-v-iowa-state-big-12-tournament/97190/ **1. Perry Ellis:** The more he plays, the more teams will have to start respecting KU's 4 man offensively, which in turn should open up some room for Jeff Withey in the lane. Ellis scored in a variety of ways Friday, which included pinning his defender deep for layups ...

KU's big men battle for No. 2 spot behind Ben McLemore

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/14/ku-basketball-v-texas-tech-big-12-tournament/97152/ **1. Ben McLemore:** An elite shooter when he has his feet set on the perimeter. McLemore helped KU get off to a good start with hot shooting, posting a game-high 24 points on 8-for-12 shooting, which included 4-for-8 accuracy from three-point range. The freshman also added four rebounds, an ...

Perry Ellis one of few positives for KU against Baylor

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/09/ku-vs-baylor-mens-basketball/97093/ **1. Ben McLemore:** The freshman's best road game ended up being his last one. McLemore led KU with 23 points on 8-for-16 shooting, which included 5-for-9 shooting from three-point range. A few of those threes were impressive too, including one where he jumped to catch a pass from the ...

KU's senior bigs take top spots

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/04/kansas-basketball-v-texas-tech-senior-night/97005/ **1. Jeff Withey:** Withey's first — and probably only — career three-pointer was the highlight of an efficient night. The center posted a team-high 22 points on 8-for-9 shooting, adding nine rebounds and four blocks in just 25 minutes. He also had no turnovers and has scored in double ...

Ben McLemore easy pick for No. 1

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/mar/02/kansas-basketball-v-west-virginia/96970/ **1. Ben McLemore:** The freshman scored 36 points on just 15 field-goal attempts, making 12 of 15 shots and seven of nine free throws. With the outburst, McLemore broke KU's freshman scoring record set 28 years earlier (to the day) by Danny Manning. McLemore looked like an NBA player ...

Elijah Johnson takes over against Iowa State

Jesse Newell

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/feb/25/kansas-v-iowa-state-basketball/96832/ **1. Elijah Johnson:** So who saw that coming?* Johnson, who had made 38 percent of his twos and 27 percent of his threes during Big 12 play, single-handedly won the game for KU late, scoring a career-high 39 points on 13-for-22 shooting with 6-for-10 shooting from three-point range. The ...
