In from Ukraine

Kansas freshman Svi Mykhailiuk welcomed two important visitors to Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday. His parents, Iurri and Inna, traveled from their hometown of Cherkasy, Ukraine, to take in their first Kansas home game.

“I’m pretty happy that they came,” Mykhailiuk said after Kansas’ victory over Texas Tech. “Because I haven’t seen them in like four months.”

Mykhailiuk, whose playhing time has decreased in recent weeks, finished with five points in 14 minutes, drilling a three-pointer and finishing a layup. It was his most playing time since going 17 minutes against Temple on Dec. 22.

Mykhailiuk said his parents met with Bill Self, though Mykhailiuk had to translate for his parents, who don’t speak English. Mykhailiuk’s mother, Inna, is a biology teacher, while his father, Iurri, is a college history professor.

“It was fun,” Mykhailiuk said, before adding: “I’m just happy that they came.”

Garrett scores

Senior walk-on Christian Garrett made the first basket of his career during the final minutes of Saturday’s victory. Garrett finished a layup while the Kansas bench exploded.

“It’s actually kind of funny,” Garrett said. “You can take it for what it is, but me and Perry (Ellis), we pray before every game. Last night, we both felt the Lord say (Ellis) was going to play good and I was going to score. With those things, you just kind of got to wait and let it play out, but it happened.”

Garrett, a native of Los Angeles, has been at Kansas since the 2011-12 season and had missed his previous six field-goal attempts.

Worth noting

Sophomore guard Frank Mason scored in double figures for the 12th straight game. That marks the longest streak by a KU player since Ben McLemore scored in double figures in 13 games in 2012-13.… Thirteen Kansas players scored on Saturday; that was the most since 15 KU players scored against Texas Tech on March 3, 2008.… Self improved to 6-0 against Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith during his Kansas tenure.
