Frank Mason III had 16 points and five assists in 33 minutes with just one turnover as Kansas won at rival Kansas State’s Bramlage Coliseum, 72-63, on Saturday.
Because of a cut on his head that required 12 stitches to close, Kansas University senior Perry Ellis missed a six-minute stretch of the second half in which the Jayhawks saw a 14-point lead dip to seven against Kansas State in Bramlage Coliseum.
Fourth-year Kansas junior post man Landen Lucas played 10 minutes in the first half and K-State wide bodies D.J. Johnson and Stephen Hurt combined for five points. Lucas played three second-half minutes before fouling out and K-State’s two hulks combined for 19 points. By Tom Keegan
Disappointed by yet another hard-fought loss, both to Kansas University and during this trying Kansas State men’s basketball season, KSU coach Bruce Weber took a moment after Saturday’s 72-63 loss to KU at Bramlage Coliseum to sound off about some bigger-picture Big 12 issues. By Matt Tait
KU coach Bill Self said KU was motivated by its desire to win and nothing else during Saturday's nine-point win at Kansas State.
KU juniors Wayne Selden, Frank Mason applaud team effort in Saturday's nine-point win over K-State.
