Kansas basketball picked up a blowout victory over TCU last night. The road trip featured solid minutes from young talent Tristan Enaruna and Dajuan Harris Jr.
Snapping back following their home loss to Texas, Kansas basketball is back in rhythm as they secured a road win over the Horned Frogs.
The 93-64 win featured a starting five absent of Marcus Garrett, who sat out due to a head injury sustained last week against the Longhorns. In his place, Dajuan Harris Jr. found himself on the starting five and contributed fairly well.
Harris found quite a bit of action on offense, moving the ball very well and even finding 7 points. The freshman found a pair of rebounds and seemed to mix well with this starting five.
The freshman went perfect at the free-throw line and simply clicked early on the help Kansas find an early lead. Having Harris’ ability to play into the ‘fast tempo’ dynamic is surely going to work well during his development in Lawrence.
Harris had originally been committed to the Missouri State program.
Another promising young player, sophomore guard Tristan Enaruna found some time on the floor and had himself a great night at the hoop with 12 points. He had a solid performance from the perimeter going 2 of 3.
Having our young talent finding roles offensively is huge for this roster and Enaruna was able to exercise this last night against the Horned Frogs. The sophomore found Mitch Lightfoot for a slam near the end of the first half, having Enaruna making crucial finds like this is exciting to see.
Despite the success from the outside, the sophomore would be responsible for three turnovers on behalf of the Jayhawks. Regardless, this was a good look for Enaruna and he’ll likely see more time on the floor down the road.
Having our younger talent finding solid minutes is going to pay dividends down the road for this Kansas team, it will help develop our team further and keep them ready in the event of the worst.
While Kansas has bounced back with this win over the Horned Frogs, there is still more to prove. This Saturday afternoon, the Jayhawks will welcome the Sooners to Allen Fieldhouse and it will be yet another test to prove they’re worth.
