FINAL: KU finishes strong, knocks out Texas Tech, 60-46

Kevin Young posted a team-high 14 points on 7-for-9 shooting, leading the Kansas men's basketball team to a 60-46 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon at United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas.

With Tech slowing down the tempo, KU led just 27-25 at halftime before pulling away.

The Jayhawks were just 5-for-18 from the floor in the first half (28 percent), which was the fewest made baskets in a half for KU since it made six shots in the first half against Oklahoma State on Feb. 13, 2006.

KU followed that with a 60.9-percent shooting mark in the second half (14-for-23).

Jeff Withey and Travis Releford added 12 points apiece, while Ben McLemore chipped in 10.

The Jayhawks scored a season-low 60 points, marking their lowest output since scoring 59 in the NCAA championship game against Kentucky last season.

KU (14-1) will play host to Baylor at 8 p.m. Monday.
