The number 6 Kansas Jayhawks were actually trailing the Iowa State Cyclones at many times in the game, but it was always close. Plus, one factor was very shocking Ben McLemore only had 7 points and 4 assists, but Elijah Johnson played his heart out his senior had 39 points! Plus he had 7 assists and 5 rebounds at guard. Jeff Withey came up big as usual with a double double consisting of 10 rebounds and 13 points.
The Jayhawks aren't the only team that fought hard in this battle to the finish the Cyclones had 5 players in double figures and the Jayhawks had 4. The biggest scorer was the Cyclones senior guard, Kore Lucious who had 23 points, and Tyrus McGee also a senior guard played like he was the sixth man of the year with 22 points and 5 rebounds off the bench. Iowa State also had plenty of help down low from another senior guard Will Clyburn who had 7 rebounds and 16 points, playing down low with him was Melvin Ejim who had only 4 points, but 7 rebounds to match at forward.
The final score would be a resounding 108 to 96 with Kansas on top. Also, the coach of Kansas Bill Self earned 500 wins. Plus, I would like to hear what you think the AP Poll will rank these teams at! So post your opinion in the comments box.
