Tier 1: Big Jays

1. Johnny Furphy

Johnny making his second consecutive start and 3rd of the season brought that next-level play that can push KU to the next level of greatness. Johnny did it all for the Jayhawks in having his best game as a Jayhawk. He filled the stat sheet with 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and no turnovers. On top of all of that, he played the best defense of his career and did a great job keeping players in front of him. You could see what he adds to the Jayhawks when he is on the floor. Johnny played his most minutes of the year with 33 and is cementing his case to start the rest of the year.

2. Hunter Dickinson

Hunter makes the game look easy. He can score from wherever he touches the ball, and he did just that. Dickinson was 9-for-14 from the field en route to leading the Jayhawks in scoring with 21 points. Hunter added seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and two turnovers.

3. Kevin McCullar

Kevin quietly put up a solid night as he poured in several baskets down the stretch in the second half. McCullar finished with 18 points, six rebounds, eight assists, one steal, and three turnovers. Kev played solid defense and continues to fill up the stat sheet.

4. KJ Adams

KJ was his usual consistent self, going 8-for-10 from the field with several big finishes at the rim. It should be noted that he did knock down 2 mid-range jumpers, which was great to see him shoot them with confidence and knock them down. KJ finished with 16 points, four rebounds, five assists, one block, and two turnovers.
