LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Thomas Robinson scored a career-high 20 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 3 Kansas beat Texas-Arlington 82-57 on Wednesday night.
Markieff Morris had 14 points and Marcus had 13 for Kansas, which extended its school-record home court winning streak to 66.
Bo Ingram led Texas-Arlington (5-5) with 20 points, including four 3-pointers. The Mavericks of the Southland Conference came in as heavy underdogs and had never beaten a ranked opponent. They were 3-50 against teams from the Big 12, but only trailed by 12 points early in the second half.
While the Jayhawks (12-0) looked sluggish after two-a-day practices during the Christmas break, Texas-Arlington dove for loose balls, fought for rebounds and for the first 25 minutes or so frequently outhustled Kansas down the court.
