Profile

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, who is still young by college basketball standards, just might be ready to fully blossom during this, his junior year, at Kansas.

Mykhailiuk, who turned 19 on June 10, had his best game as a Jayhawk against Austin Peay in the first round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

He scored a career-high 23 points off 9-of-11 shooting while logging 24 minutes in the Jayhawks’ 105-79 rout of the Governors in Des Moines, Iowa. He hit four of five threes, including consecutive treys that opened a 23-6 run that stretched a 12-10 lead to 35-16.

Mykhailiuk played so well, it prompted guard Wayne Selden to say “he’s first-round material” after that game.
