One down! Five to Go!!! KU wins big 85-61!

Paced by Mario Chalmers and Brandon Rush - who brought their offense from the tail end of last weekend's Big 12 Tournament to Omaha with them - KU crushed Portland State 85-61 Thursday morning, advancing to Saturday's second round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Jayhawks will get the winner of the Kent State-UNLV contest, set to take place right after this morning's game, in the Qwest Center Saturday evening at around 6:00 p.m. Brandon Rush led KU with 18 points, scoring 15 of those in the first half on 3-of-6 three-point shooting. Darrell Arthur was consistent on the offensive end from start to finish, scoring 17, while Mario Chalmers added 16.
KU was 12-of-26 from three-point range, while holding Portland State's leading scorer, Jeremiah Dominguez, to 13 points on a frustrating morning.
