FINAL: Jayhawks use late second-half surge to pull away from Kansas State, 67-49

Travis Releford posted his first career double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds, leading the Kansas men's basketball team to a 67-49 victory over No. 23 Kansas State on Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

KU held KSU to 32-percent shooting (18 of 57) while also limiting two of the Wildcats' greatest strengths: offensive rebounds and free throws.

KSU finished with just 12 offensive boards — its second-lowest total this season — and a 16 free throws — a season low.

Thomas Robinson added his own double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds. Tyshawn Taylor notched 13 points to go with three assists and eight turnovers.

KU (11-3) will play at Oklahoma at 1 p.m. Saturday.
