FINAL: Strong second half pushes KU to 72-53 victory over Boston

The Kansas men's basketball team made 16 of 26 shots in the second half (62 percent), pulling away for a 72-53 victory over 16th-seeded Boston on Friday night in its first game of the NCAA Tournament at BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla.

"I think we finally went out and just started playing," Markieff Morris said. "I think the first half we were just tight and COach said we've just got to loosen up and have some fun out there."

Marcus Morris led KU with 16 points on 7-for-13 shooting. Markieff Morris added 15 points on 5-for-10 shooting.

Brady Morningstar (13) and Tyshawn Taylor (10) also added double-figure scoring.

KU led just 33-29 at halftime in a slow-paced first half.

"We were missing a lot of bunnies early, so we were kind of playing soft, so the emphasis was just to make easy shots," Marcus Morris said. "And Markieff got us going in the second half, and it really sparked us all."

The Jayhawks outrebounded the Terriers, 40-25.

KU (33-2) will face either UNLV or Illinois on Sunday. The gametime has not yet been announced.
