Wowza.

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma State at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Ok then.

Kansas absolutely demolished the Pitt State Gorillas in their final exhibition game of 2019, and I’m not really sure what else to say about it.

One week after Fort Hays State hung around into the 30s, Kansas blew the doors off of Pitt State immediately, jumping out to a 24-4 lead and continuing to build from there. Kansas held a 27-point lead at halftime and didn’t let up in the second half, pushing the final margin to 60 on a Michael Jankovich 3-pointer with 51 seconds to play.

Once again, Kansas freed the three as the Jayhawks put up 38-74 (51.4%) of their shots from behind the arc. KU hit 17 of those threes, a 44.7% clip.

Ochai Agbaji led the way with 19 points on 7-8 shooting, which included 5-6 from deep. Devon Dotson (12) and David McCormack (13) were the only other Jayhawks in double figures. It should be noted that Dotson hit just 4-13 from the field to get his 12 points, however, he did have 7 assists.

Up next, Kansas opens regular season play with Duke in the Champions Classic in New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The game is slated to tip at 6 PM.
