Kansas easily takes down Georgetown, 86-64

Jamie Squire

Kansas' first game at Allen Fieldhouse in almost a month results in a big win

Kansas hadn't played a home game in 28 days, but they looked plenty cozy in an 86-64 victory over Georgetown Saturday. After a back-and-forth start, the Jayhawks settled in, taking a 25-24 lead with just under 8 minutes to go in the first half, and never looking back. Kansas was on top by 10 at halftime, and would finish coasting to a 86-64 victory.

The standout players today featured a pleasant surprise. As we've come to expect, Joel Embiid had another very solid outing, but it was nearly matched by Tarik Black, who scored 17 points on 5-5 FG shooting, and 7-9 from the line. He added 6 rebounds and 2 blocks in only 20 minutes played. This was a welcome sight, as Black has repeatedly found himself in foul trouble this season, and seemingly playing frustrated for most of his time on the court.

Andrew Wiggins had a quiet 12 points, shooting 2-5 from beyond the arc and 3-10 overall. He rounded out the box score with 4 assists, 3 steals and a block, but with only one rebound. Bill Self continued to toy with the wing rotation, as Brannen Greene, who played 30 minutes across the Jayhawks' last two games, only found 2 minutes of playing time, none of it meaningful. Conner Frankamp saw one of his higher minute totals of the season, but still only saw 6 minutes of action. Naadir Tharpe once again started at point guard and played the lion's share of the minutes there, scoring an efficient 10, while adding 4 assists to only 1 turnover.
