Post-Game Awards: Oklahoma (Round Two)

Beware of the Blog’s Player of the Game is Naadir Tharpe. Once again Tharpe came up big when KU needed him most by hitting timely shots, playing tough defense and taking care of the ball. Self went as far as to call it his best performance as a Jayhawk in the second half. It was definitely special. And what poetry that it would be the less heralded junior PG that came through to secure a 10th straight Big 12 title and not one of the highly touted freshman. Tharpe ended with 19 points on 6-of-7 from the field. He hit his only three point attempt and all six of his free throws. He added five assists to only one turnover.
