NCAA Basketball: Wofford at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas Jayhawks used their biggest run of the season in the second half to absolutely bury the visiting Wofford Terriers by a 72-47 final score.

The Game

Wofford opened the scoring with a three-pointer (what else?) by Matthew Pegram, but Kansas would quickly answer. By the 10-minute mark, the Jayhawks held a 19-12 lead after a Devon Dotson layup. However, KU would only lead by three, 29-26, at the break.

Wofford took a 32-29 lead less than two minutes into the second half, but Kansas quickly reclaimed the lead. A Cameron Jackson free throw at the 11:16 mark cut the KU lead to 43-41, and that’s when KU went on its 27-0 run that absolutely put the game out of reach. The Terriers wouldn’t score again until only 2:28 remained in the game as Quentin Grimes, Dedric Lawson, and Devon Dotson just blew up and Kansas cruised to a relatively easy 72-47 win.


Dedric Lawson led all scorers with 20 points on 10-17 shooting. He added 8 rebounds and 3 blocks, but was 0-4 from behind the arc.

Quentin Grimes busted out of his funk with 14 points on 6-10 shooting.

Devon Dotson added 16 points of his own on 6-9 shooting, with 3 steals, 3 assists, and 3 rebounds.

Chris Teahan played for the first time since exhibition play!

As a team, Kansas only shot just 3-23 (13.0%) from three-point range. The Jayhawks were 7-10 (70.0%) from the free throw line.

Wofford took 40.0% of their shots from 3-point range, hitting just 5-26 (19.2%).

Udoka Azubuike played just four minutes due to injuring his ankle in the first half. According to Bill Self, he has a high ankle sprain and will be out indefinitely.
