Kansas Runs Away From North Texas

The Jayhawks started the game Friday night in a hurry.  Markieff Morris led the way by knocking down his first four shots including a three pointer while leading the Jayhawks to a 14 point lead to start the night.  The Jayhawks would extend that lead to as much as 17 in the first half before the Mean Green would close the gap to 11 headed into hafltime. 

The start of the second half played out much like the first with Kansas again jumping out early and stretching the lead .  The Jayhawks would ultimately start the second frame with a 31 to 8 run that left little doubt as to the result of the game. The final score on Friday night, 93-60.

The big winners of the night for Kansas were somewhat the usual suspects. Marcus Morris finished with 20 points on 7-11 shooting, brother Markieff finished with 13.

The surprise?  Elijah Johnson returned to the court after a two game hiatus imposed by Coach Self and Johnson responded to the tune of 11 points including a 2 of 3 performance from beyond the arc. 

Overall, the Jayhawks shooting was the story as Kansas converted nearly 60% of their field goal attempts and exactly 60% of their shots from behind the arc. 

Another solid win early in the season.  Another win where the Jayhawks handle an inferior opponent in the way a top 10 team is expected to.  Right now the Jayhawks look good, they have a chance to be VERY good and they still haven't played a minute with a player that is widely considered a top 10 pick in the NBA draft next year.

The win is the 62nd straight for the Jayhawks in Allen Fieldhouse.  That mark ties the current record and the Jayhawks will aim to break that record on Tuesday against Texas A&M CC.
