A month ago Trae Young had a large gap after him in our opponent adjusted win shares metric. He still leads in the metric but Jock Landale, Jalen Brunson, Devonte Graham, Jevon Carter, and Keita Bates-Diop have almost caught up.

Big and small, they're all in celebration mode at Allen Fieldhouse as Kansas throttles Oklahoma 104-74, sending the Sooners to their sixth straight defeat. That's the highest point total ever allowed by OU in a non-overtime Big 12 game.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Trae Young's career low point total is 15, scored against Omaha in his debut, when played 26 minutes. He has 11 points with three minutes to play on 3-for-11 shooting. Kansas leads 97-70, by far its most dominating performance in Big 12 play this season. The Jayhawks will own sole possession of first place in the the league standings.

Kansas shuts down Young in first half (0:47)

Eighth-ranked Kansas leads Oklahoma 49-38 at the half behind 11 points from Malik Newman. Trae Young flashed some wizardry with his passing, dishing six assists, but he's 1-of-6 shooting for four points. Young has attempted just one 3-pointer, an errant 35-foot heave at the buzzer. Credit Devonte' Graham with most of the defensive pressure, but many of the Jayhawks, including center Udoka Azubuike, have pitched in to deny looks to Young.

Trae Young took a seat with eight minutes to play in the first half at Allen Fieldhouse. He's been thoroughly outplayed by Devonte' Graham. The freshman is 0 for 5 shooting. Three of his attempts were blocked at the rim. Oklahoma is all out of sorts, without a 3-point field goal and 7 for 23 from the field. Kansas leads 30-17, trying to take over sole possession of first place in the Big 12.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma freshman Trae Young, the national leader in scoring at 29 PPG, is shooting 4 for 27 from 3-point range in the Sooners' past three games, all losses. Young had the attention of Allen Fieldhouse throughout OU warmups. He scored 26 on 7-of-9 shooting in Oklahoma's win last month over Kansas.

Will Oklahoma, which has lost five straight, try to rekindle some of its earlier form by going back to the Hack-a-Dok strategy that helped it beat Kansas 85-80 on Jan. 23? The Sooners intentionally fouled 7-foot Kansas center Udoka Azubuike several times in the win as he shot 1 of 7 from the line. Azubuike has slightly improved his free-throw shooting over the past month. He was at 41 percent before the debacle in Norman; he's now shooting 44.7 percent.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Another Big Monday at tap at Allen Fieldhouse, where No. 8 Kansas faces slumping Oklahoma and star freshman Trae Young tonight. The Jayhawks are also home next Monday against Texas, sandwiched around a visit Saturday to Texas Tech, which will loom extremely large in Kansas' bid to win at least a share of its 14th straight Big 12 title. Coach Bill Self is 24-0 at home on Big Monday.
