Another day, same result. Kansas won another basketball game, even if it wasn’t always the prettiest performance.
Bench points have been tough to come by for the top-ranked Kansas men’s basketball team so far this season, and never more so than last Saturday, when the Jayhawks’ four reserves scored just 4 points in a win over Villanova. But Tuesday night, during an 89-53 victory over South Dakota at Allen Fieldhouse, the bench points came in bunches and the KU reserves nearly scored as many points as they had in the past four games combined.
A funny thing happened on the way to the top-ranked Kansas men’s basketball team finally running past South Dakota, 89-53, on a sloppy and sluggish Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.
South Dakota basketball coach Todd Lee diligently watched every minute of the Kansas Jayhawks’ first nine games before taking his team to Allen Fieldhouse Tuesday night. It’s safe to say Lee’s scouting report didn’t include anything about denying KU backup point guard Charlie Moore the opportunity to spot up from behind the arc.
Before the Jayhawks play their first true road game of the season on Saturday at No. 18 Arizona State, No. 1 Kansas warms up for the trip out west by playing host to South Dakota at Allen Fieldhouse.
