Jayhawks get a win in D.C.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas built up an early 28-15 lead in the first half but Georgetown stormed back and made it game the rest of the way.  The 'Hawks would take a 34-32 lead into halftime but would never lead by more than five points during the second half.  Kansas would win this game from the free throw line, as KU's final 7 points (over the last 2:36 of gametime) came from the charity stripe.  Kansas moved to 7-1 with the 75-70 victory.

Brannen Greene came off the bench to lead all KU scorers with 19 points on 5/6 shooting - 5/5 from behind the arc.  Frank Mason added 14 and Perrry Ellis had 13.  Ellis led the way on the boards with 10 rebounds while Wayne Selden dished out four assists.

Ellis really struggled from the floor, connecting on only 4/15 shots.  Selden was 2/7 on field goals (both 3s) while Devonte Graham and Kelly Oubre combined to go 2/9 from the field.  Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk started the game but only logged five minutes, no points, and a turnover.

As a team, Georgetown actually outrebounded the 'Hawks 38 to 37.  KU hit 10/17 on 3-pt shots to G'Town's 5/16.  Kansas was also 25/32 from the free throw line while the Hoyas shot 19/25.

Up next for Kansas, the Jayhawks will take on the Utah Utes on Saturday, Dec. 13, at 2:15 PM in the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO.
