With a depleted roster, No. 13 Kansas took care of business when it returned to Allen Fieldhouse. Following a loss to its in-state rival, KU got back on track in a big way with a 84-72 win over Oklahoma State Saturday afternoon. The Jayhawks, who were without starters Marcus Garrett (injury) and Lagerald Vick (leave of absence), led by double digits for the final 10-plus minutes of the contest.
