Senior Perry Ellis led the charge with 14 points, 13 in the second half, as the frontcourt players of No. 2 Kansas accounted for 30 of the team's 50 points over the final 20 minutes to claim a 78-53 win over UC Irvine Tuesday night inside Allen Fieldhouse.
“We were able to get the runout and the ball to Devonté. He has great court vision. Through contact and getting it on the glass it was able to go in,” Mickelson said of his bucket.
Nos. 1 and 2 have squared off just once in the history of Allen. No. 2 Missouri beat No. 1 KU, 77-71, in 1990.
Jackson, a 6-8 senior from Prolific Prep in Napa Valley, California, said he’s considering “Michigan State, Arizona, Kansas, UNLV and Maryland.”

#1 Michigan State and #22 Cincinnati fell on Tuesday night.
Baylor was without its two leading passers, leading rusher and leading receiver for the Russell Athletic Bowl on Tuesday against North Carolina, but it didn't matter as the Bears ran all over the Tar Heels in a 49-38 victory. Baylor ran for an all-time bowl-record 645 yards, led by Johnny Jefferson's 299 yards and three touchdowns, as Art and Kendal Briles adapted to their personnel to dominate the Tar Heels defense.
Fournette finished the game with 256 total yards (212 rushing, 44 receiving) and five touchdowns. The impressive performance pushed Fournette's season totals to 1,953 yards rushing and 22 rushing touchdowns. Which means, had LSU's season opener against McNeese State not been canceled due to weather, it's safe to say Fournette likely would have eclipsed 2,000 rushing yards for the Tigers in 2015.
This embarrassing day for Oklahoma was inevitable ever since Mixon returned from a one-year suspension for hitting a woman. Once Oklahoma reinstated Mixon after he punched a female student in the face and broke four of her facial bones, this day was bound to happen whenever Mixon finally spoke.
I have no interest in calling something dumb when there's not really anything dumb, and there's nothing too obviously dumb about this week's Coaches poll -- except, of course, the fact that George Washington got 25 points, which suggests some coaches made the exact same mistake John McNamara made on his Associated Press ballot.

The Colts will head into their crucial Week 17 game with Josh Freeman and Stephen Morris at quarterback.
Chip Kelly is officially free to coach wherever he wants in 2016. In a shocking move, the Philadelphia Eagles announced on Tuesday that Kelly has been released from his contract.
Many expect Kelly, who had a 26-21 record in Philadelphia, to look for another NFL coaching job, but if the NFL teams aren't calling, a return to the college ranks could be a possibility.
