Post Game Awards: West Virginia

Beware of the Blog’s Player of the Game is Wayne Selden. Wayne had a great game that harkened back to his early Big 12 performances. The freshman barely edged out his highly touted counterpart Andrew Wiggins for the player of the game spotlight. Selden was more efficient with his touches going for 17 points on only seven field goal attempts. He ended only 20% of KU’s possessions while he was in and shot over 71% from the field. That included 3-of-5 three point tries. He added two assists, one of which was a particularly pretty dime thrown to Perry Ellis for a wide open dunk. All in all, it was a positive outing that will hopefully build momentum for him headed into Big Monday in the little apple.

Current Standings:

  • 1. Andrew Wiggins (6)
  • T-2. Perry Ellis (4)
  • T-2. Naadir Tharpe (4)
  • T-2. Wayne Selden (4)
  • T-3. Joel Embiid (2)
  • T-3. Frank Mason (2)
  • 4. Tarik Black (1)

You let the whole team down Brannen Greene. It’s not about what he did to deserve the cone of shame,  it’s about what he didn’t do. KU fans have become accustomed to the freshman sharpshooter’s customary first half three pointer. Greene usually hits one, slams his three-goggles against his temple a few times and then rides off into the sunset. In this contest he replaced the Greene three with a Greene turnover and for that, he lands himself in my doghouse.
