Jayhawks Crush Winston Salem St.

LAWRENCE, Kan.- Five Jayhawks scored in double-figures, including 15 apiece from sophomores Julian Wright and Brandon Rush, as the University of Kansas rolled past Winston-Salem State, 94-43, Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas (9-2) shot 57.6-percent from the field, dished out 29 assists and led by as many as 53 points en route to its highest scoring output of the season. The Jayhawks held the Rams (1-14) to just 34-percent shooting and forced 24 turnovers that led to 35 Kansas points. KU also controlled the paint, outscoring Winston-Salem State, 56-10, while outrebounding the Rams by a count of 40-28.

The 51-point win matched Kansas' largest margin of victory this season, equalling the 83-32 win over Dartmouth on Nov. 28.

Junior forward Sasha Kaun scored a season-high 11 points, and freshman forward Darrell Arthur notched 13 points, four blocks and a career-high three steals. Freshman guard Sherron Collins added 11 points, while sophomore guard Mario Chalmers tied a career-high with eight assists to go along with his nine points.

Junior guard Jeremy Case scored a season-high eight points, on 2-of-3 shooting from beyond the three-point line, as KU's bench outscored Winston-Salem State's, 40-19.

Kansas surged to a 45-21 halftime lead, led by Wright's 10 points, after shooting 57.6-percent and scoring 13 points off 12 Ram turnovers.

The Jayhawks will next be in action Dec. 23 in a non-conference tilt with Boston College. Tipoff is set for 1 p.m., and the game can be seen on CBS.
