After being a non-factor during the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament, Kansas star and potential No. 1 pick in the June NBA draft Ben McLemore had an outstanding game against Michigan – all of his 20 points came in an 18-minute span and included this thunderous dunk on a fast break.
McLemore shot 8-of-15, made 4-of-8 three-pointers, and about the only negative you can say is that the Jayhawks didn’t look for him enough down the stretch, as the offense crumbled. Kansas should have been looking to get their 87 percent foul shooter the ball, but it didn’t happen.
If not for the heroics of Michigan’s Trey Burke late in the game – the Wolverines closed regulation on a 22-8 run – we’d all be talking about McLemore’s fantastic performance.
