The Jayhawks didn't get out to hot start like they did earlier this week against an overmatched Milwaukee team, but the end result was still pretty similar at the Sprint Center against UMKC. After jumping out to a 10-2 lead, the Jayhawks played sloppy and briefly fell behind before getting things clicking. After that, they really clicked, extending their lead to 43-24 at halftime behind David McCormack's surprise 16 point half.
Things only got worse for the Roos, as KU started the second half on another 10-2 run. McCormack continued to play the game of his life, having scored 28 points at the 10 mark, a point at which UMKC as a team had only managed 35. D-Mac wouldn't score again, but Kansas cruised to a 98-57 win. Devon Dotson was second in scoring with 18, with three assists and three steals. Marcus Garrett was the only other Jayhawk in double digits with a baker's dozen.
Kansas gets the week off now to prepare for a road trip to Villanova next Saturday, possibly their second toughest opponent to date behind Duke.
