Kansas Basketball Stat No. 3 — Offensive Rebounds: Kentucky 15, Kansas 8
Despite not having an active player over 6-foot-9, Kentucky nearly doubled the Jayhawks’ total in the offensive rebounding department. What makes it even more odd is that Hunter Dickinson grabbed 21 boards and was responsible for six of Kansas’ eight.
We probably should take this statistic with a grain of salt considering how poorly Kentucky shot the ball. They missed 51 shots to KU’s 31, and Antonio Reeves was chucking threes left and right. But Kansas either has to improve on grabbing more offensive boards or reducing their opponent’s down the stretch.
