One day after No. 13 Kansas snapped a two-game skid with an 80-63 victory over New Mexico at the Sprint Center, we offer three thoughts on the Jayhawks:

the Jayhawks posted a resurgent performance on the offensive end, scoring 1.23 points per possession against New Mexico, according to KenPom.com. It was the third most efficient offensive performance of the season. And other than victories over Towson (1.26 points per possession) and Duke (1.25), this was the most consistent offense weve seen.

Of course, freshman center Joel Embiids Dream Shake was pretty impressive.
