Ellis struggles

Kansas freshman forward Perry Ellis made his second straight start on Tuesday night. But as the game wore on, most of his minutes went to redshirt freshman Jamari Traylor, who finished with six points and four rebounds in 25 minutes.

Ellis, meanwhile, was limited to 17 minutes while struggling against Michigan State’s physical front line.

“I thought Jamari was actually much more aggressive,” Self said. “Perry’s gonna be a good player, but everything is a finesse deal right now. And it’s not his fault. Michigan State’s not the best team to be finesse against.”

Worth noting

Senior forward Kevin Young played for the first time this season after missing two exhibition games and the season opener because of a broken bone in his shooting hand. Young, who wore a fingerless, padded glove on his shooting hand, had one point and zero rebounds in 3 minutes.… Former Chief and current Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez sat in the Kansas cheering section.
