Kansas Throws Cincinnati on the Barbie, 74-69

The Australian leads Kansas to victory

NCAA Basketball: Cincinnati at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Johnny Furphy put on a show for his parents who flew in from Australia to watch him play as the Jayhawks beat the Cincinnati Bearcats 74-69. Furphy led all scorers with 23 points and 11 rebounds in a game where Kansas could never quite pull away from the Bearcats.

Kansas had a grand total of 2 bench points as the depth woes continue to plague the Jayhawks. After putting up impressive rebounding numbers early in the season, Hunter Dickinson was only able to pull in 6 rebounds tonight. Dickinson ended the game with 10 points. DaJuan Harris had 8 points and 5 turnovers.

Kansas will have their hands full this weekend as they travel to Ames to take on #23 Iowa State.
