The Kansas men's basketball team held Richmond to 33.8-percent shooting on its way to a 77-57 victory Friday night in the Sweet 16 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
"For the most part, we took away easy points and layups," KU coach Bill Self said. "We also made some shots in the first half that got the lead out there pretty good."
Richmond, which came in as a 40-percent three-point shooting team, made just four of 26 three-pointers (15.4 percent).
Brady Morningstar led KU with 18 points on 7-for-11 shooting. Marcus Morris added 13 points, while Thomas Robinson had 12 points to go with 14 rebounds.
"I just wanted to come off the bench and use my energy and go after every ball," Robinson said, "and it happened to go in my favor tonight."
KU got off to a hot start, jumping out to a 35-11 lead in the first half.
