Ellis starts for Young

Kansas coach Bill Self tweaked the starting lineup on Wednesday, inserting freshman Perry Ellis for senior Kevin Young. His reasoning: Self was hoping Ellis could get going, while Young could still bring his usual energy off the bench.

“I was really trying to hope that Perry could get going.” Self said. “And that obviously didn’t happen.”

Ellis finished scoreless in just 10 minutes, and KU didn’t score its first field goal until the 12:43 mark in the first half.

“We decided to do something different today,” Self said. “And it didn’t help us, but it didn’t hurt us. We still got what we normally get; we still got Kevin’s loose-ball production.”

It was the first lineup change since game four of the season against Washington State on Nov. 19. Young entered the starting lineup after Ellis and redshirt freshman Jamari Traylor drew starts at the power-forward spot during the first three games. Before Saturday’s loss against Oklahoma State, the Jayhawks were 17-0 with Young in the starting lineup.

•  KU senior guard Elijah Johnson finished three for 12 from the field. He's now 14 of 48 (29 percent) in KU's last five games.
