Ben McLemore was on fire tonight at Allen Fieldhouse. It’s a good thing he was, otherwise #6 Kansas probably would have lost at home to unranked Iowa State. McLemore scored a career-high 33 points and went 10-of-12 from the field, including a perfect 6-6 from 3-point land. None of those shots were more important than his 5th three-pointer, which tied the game at 79 with a :01 remaining in regulation. Kansas never looked back in overtime and won 97-89.
Another good player maybe heading West?
Tonight will probably be the most exciting primetime game of the year.
Mike D’Antoni is still the coach in spirit.
