Kansas defeats Richmond, 77-57

  • 6:27 p.m., March 25, 2011
  • Alamodome, San Antonio, TX

FINAL: Elite Eight bound! KU uses defense to stomp Richmond, 77-57

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.

The Jayhawks (35-2) will take on VCU at 1:20 p.m. Sunday on CBS.

Brian Powell

Houstonhawk1

Fellow Hawks---the nitpicking is too much. This game---we came out in full-court, sped them up, made good shots, rebounded, chipped, moved the ball unbelievably well (they did too first half---a joy to watch both teams battle)..... OK Selby just did something dumb.

Kusayzone in reply to Adam Evans

Sherron like?

Ku_fansince75

Brian Powell

well, that's how they got here: 4 senior starters. getting their big in foul trouble early was key, as was Brady's defense on Smith

Chuckberry32 in reply to Ku_fansince75

Wissoxfan83

Should us and Butler win again, we'll be playing an 8 seed to get to the NC.

Wissoxfan83 in reply to Jayhawkinchicago

Not too worried about either, but if given a choice, SVU or whatever they're called.

Chuckberry32 in reply to Jayhawkinchicago

good question..i say FSU

Jayhawkinchicago

I hope we play VCU, destroy the city of Richmond.

Ku_fansince75 in reply to Jesse Newell

Lucky shirt, Jesse. Have room service dry clean that baby!!!!!!!!!

Robert Ramp in reply to Jayhawkinchicago
