KU Rolls!!! Keep it up Hawks!!!
KANSAS 67, KANSAS STATE 61
Darnell Jackson went to the line for a one-and-one trip out of the timeout, rolling in the first one. He swished the second attempt, making it a six-point game with 3:57 to play.
David Hoskins turned the ball over for K-State, but Brandon Rush couldn’t capitalize, as he missed a three from the corner. Cartier Martin missed a trey look on the other end, and Julian Wright threw a wizard-like pass to Darrell Arthur for two points which put KU back up by eight with 2:30 to go.
Hoskins dusted two in off the glass while knifing across the lane, taking a pass from Clent Stewart to do so. Chalmers then tried to ice it with a three, but the ball went out of bounds, back to K-State, trailing by six with 1:53 left.
Julian Wright put the game on ice with a minute left as he hit a tear-drop jumper in the lane to put KU up by eight, it gave him 12 points and his second huge play of the final minutes.
A free throw-fest finished up the game, as Mario Chalmers led KU with 16 points. Julian Wright had 12, including a late bucket in the lane and a nifty dish to Darrell Arthur, both of which helped KU ice K-State for the third time this season. Sherron Collins was the third Jayhawk in double figures, scoring 10, including two three-pointers.
Cartier Martin led all scorers with 17 points, while Lance Harris had 16 and Akeem Wright had 12 for K-State.
KU will take on the winner of Texas and Oklahoma State tomorrow at 2 p.m. in the Ford Center.
