In a conference season full of nail-biters, Saturday’s thrashing was a nice refresher for the Kansas men’s basketball team. No. 14 Kansas led for all but one minute, and even had a double-digit advantage over the final 30 minutes of the contest, during a 78-53 win over West Virginia Saturday afternoon at Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks (20-6, 9-4 Big 12) avoided the season sweep of the Mountaineers (10-15, 2-10) after dropping a 65-64 decision in Morgantown on Jan. 19.
