FINAL: Kansas trounces Texas, 73-47

Jeff Withey and Travis Releford had 15 points apiece, and the Kansas men's basketball team displayed smothering defense in a 73-47 victory over Texas on Saturday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

The Longhorns made 12 of 55 field goals (22 percent). That included 2-for-21 shooting from three-point range (10 percent).

Withey added 11 rebounds and four steals, while Releford was efficient, making five of seven field goals.

Ben McLemore added 13 points, including a 360 dunk with 4:11 left in the game that made it 68-34 KU.

Elijah Johnson also broke out of a long slump, posting 12 points on 5-for-10 shooting with four assists and just one turnover.

KU (21-4, 9-3 Big 12) will play at Oklahoma State at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Texas never takes its starters out.

KU's reserves run off the final seconds.

Kent Wells

Assist Manning

Dynamitehawk

Assist by Manning!

Marc Frey in reply to Jesse Newell

Same with Jordan Jr.

Pepper_bar in reply to Jesse Newell

Manning has been sitting for two hours, give him a break.

Surrealku in reply to Jesse Newell

He misses his dad. That's why.

Wissoxfan83

My whole family hasn't paid attention to the game but they are now laughing at all the coaches kids.

Jhawkrulz

Manning....just a little wide right

Wissoxfan83

Another lottery pick on the team?

Jesse Newell

Evan Manning not nearly as good as I thought he'd be.

Brooksmd

Coach's row got a laugh over that.

Jhawkrulz

Bill I'm sure taught him that move!!

Surrealku

SELF absorbs!

Melrank

TYLER SELF

Jesse Newell

Bill Self just drops his head laughing.

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Robb Kraft

Traffic on K-10?

Jhawkrulz

sorry AWIII...typed the wrong letter.

Melrank in reply to Dynamitehawk

That's funny everytime you do that.

Surrealku

So, who's really KU's rival in B12?

Jhawkrulz

Wow...RWIII needs some ball handling time.

Dynamitehawk

Las Nepotistas!

Robb Kraft

jesse what is up with all the empty seats mid level we keep seeing on tv?

Dynamitehawk in reply to Lajayhawk

Peace.

Lajayhawk

Rock Chalk

Lajayhawk

Kids making it impossible to live blog. Great game. See you all on Wednesday.

Dynamitehawk

Tyler has a trillion.

Surrealku in reply to Jhawkrulz

I see.

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Surrealku

The bars close at 2, and it's all-star weekend. They gotta get it in while they can.

Jhawkrulz in reply to Surrealku

Randle is a position of need...Wiggins is position of Luxury for next year.

Surrealku

WTF? Leaving before the game finishes?

Brad Swisher

Tyler and Evan!!!

Kent Wells in reply to MDL/kuae99

Watching this game is a felony in seven states.

Joshua Hatcher

2:33 left and there's still a chance for Wesley to foul out!

Jesse Newell

Randle leaving to a big ovation.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Nice!!

Brad Swisher

Biggest game of the year coming up Wed.

Surrealku

I like Wiggins more than Randle. But wouldn't hurt to get him either.

Kent Wells in reply to Dynamitehawk

I feel sorry for your aunt. LOL

Wissoxfan83

He's just got to get in the handshake line to announce he's coming to KU

Jesse Newell

"Come to Kansas!" now.

Melrank in reply to Jesse Newell

You could hear it.

Lajayhawk

"We want Randle!!"

Brad Swisher in reply to Jesse Newell

Nice.

Brad Swisher

C'mon Julius, sign up!

Jesse Newell

There's "We want Ran-dle!"

Dynamitehawk in reply to Kent Wells

And I've tried on two of Michael Jackson's noses, and my aunt had an 3-way with Elton John and Henry Kissinger.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Oh, wait, thought you meant Randle.... WTF is the crowd doing??

MDL/kuae99 in reply to Kent Wells

Post of the night. Cheers!

Jhawkrulz in reply to Johninkc1

Really...a lot of people were surprised he went with such a wide spread...some thought we might ink it out.

Joshua Hatcher

Perry got the shooters touch there lol

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

NICE!!!

Jayhawkinatl

Now's the time to put Rio in.

Melrank

We want Tyler? WE WANT RANDLE!

Kent Wells in reply to Jesse Newell

Censors are struggling to decide if this game isn't close to CIA waterboarding.

Jaycon11

Mac's dunk was an early b-day present to MJ.

Jesse Newell

"We want Ty-ler!" is the chant.

Johninkc1

Supposed to go to Pepper Bar

Brooksmd

Hmmm, no smile on Self's face after that dunk.

Johninkc1 in reply to Jhawkrulz

TROLL

Surrealku in reply to Jaybate

They're good friends. I think respect has something to do with that.

Wissoxfan83 in reply to Jesse Newell

It's one of the weaknesses of this live update, I'm typing or reading and miss plays!

Joshua Hatcher in reply to Pepper_bar

Did you just hint at Bill Self being a bad coach?

Jesse Newell in reply to Jhawkrulz

No. I figured Texas would make a shot.

Bigskyjayhawk

I said or lord jesus its a fire!

Kent Wells in reply to Dynamitehawk

Looks like Sitting Bulls peace pipe was involved too.

Jaybate

If I'm Barnes, I'm wondering when Self is putting his bench in?

Jhawkrulz

Jesse do you feel a little bad for picking KU by only 18?

Brad Swisher

Think the twins even were impressed with that throw down.

Pepper_bar in reply to Joshua Hatcher

A good coach wouldn't take the injury risk.

Surrealku

That BMac's dunk surely beats Flight White's!

Todd Simpson

so if Bmac comes back for 1 more year and works on his Defense and shot off the dribble he will be lights out

Joshua Hatcher in reply to Pepper_bar

So we the fans can see hom do that.

Jesse Newell in reply to Wissoxfan83

Censors had to decide whether that was OK for the kids to watch.

Jayhawkinatl in reply to Todd Simpson

LMAO

Pepper_bar

KU's up by 34. Why is McLemore still playing?

Joshua Hatcher

Did that remind anyone else of Julian Wrights 360 verses Texas?

Kent Wells in reply to Brooksmd

I think Mangino would have made him do bear crawls...

Dynamitehawk

Unreal. That kid is amazing.

Jaycon11

Enjoy the nba, Mac. Send a postcard.

Dynamitehawk in reply to Dynamitehawk

oops peace.

Kent Wells

WOW WOW WOW WOW

Brooksmd

Me thinks Self will say something about that.

Dynamitehawk in reply to Lajayhawk

How can I one up this??? I held Teddy Roosevelt's Nobel Piece Prize and Al Capones cane gun in the same day?

MDL/kuae99

If he would've pointed at the NBA row, it would've been an annual

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Top 10 for the year.

Jhawkrulz

3 More Years...3 More Years...3 More years!!!

Wissoxfan83 in reply to Jesse Newell

You're ahead of us by about 30 seconds, made me to be sure to watch.

Joshua Hatcher
