Texas A&M made its first two shots of the game, taking an early 5-3 lead, but that was about as good as it would get for the Aggies.

Svi Mykhailiuk hit back-to-back threes followed by a layup to give KU an 11-5 lead, and Kansas raced out to first half leads of 27-18, 38-21, and 40-25 before taking a 45-27 lead into the break.

The Aggies did have a late run in them, getting to within 72-62 with 4:40 to play, but never got close enough to threaten the Jayhawks.

Svi led all Jayhawks with 24 points on 8-15 shooting, including 4-8 from deep.

Graham struggled from the floor once again, hitting just 2-11 shots, but was 2-4 from behind the arc and dished out 7 assists against 3 turnovers.

As a team, Kansas finished 12-26 (46.2%) from behind the arc.

Some video surfaced on Twitter of a new and improved free throw stroke by Udoka Azuibuke, but the big guy never got the chance to show it off in the game.

Up next, the Jayhawks will head to Manhattan to take on K-State on Big Monday at 8 PM.
