Thomas Robinson contributed 19 points and 17 rebounds, helping the Kansas men's basketball team to a 77-54 victory over Florida Atlantic on Wednesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

Most of Robinson's points came at the free throw line, where he made 11 of 13 shots. He was just 4-for-13 from the floor.

Tyshawn Taylor added 18 points on 5-for-12 shooting. Travis Releford added 11 points, while Jeff Withey made all five of his shots to finish with 10.

KU won despite a sloppy second half. The Jayhawks had 10 turnovers in the first 11 minutes of the second half.

The Jayhawks held the Owls to 32 percent shooting (21 of 65).

KU (4-2) will play host to South Florida at 4:15 p.m. Saturday.

Ya know, I didn't really see it coming until I watched it and started thinking about it, but you are absolutely correct, chuck.

Huskerpower in reply to Kris Weidling

"mid major BCS" -- This just added your credibilty.....

Jaybate

4-2 with the schedule we have faced so far, given that Self is pulling rabbits out of his hat faster than a professional magician, this is almost certain to go down as Self's greatest coaching job yet.

Hihawk

Kureignman, thanks for the link, it was great to watch the game, thanks again.

Jeff Coffman

Who is the Illinois St coach...that is who we will probably end up with.

Mike Kendall

Okay, time to get better against USF. Thanks for the coverage, Jesse, as always!

Kris Weidling

We will get a coordinator or someone from a mid major BCS just like we always have. Gill (Buff), Fat Bastard (OU Coordinator), T Allen (N. Iowa), G. Mason (Kent), Valesente (Coordinator), Gottfried (Morehead St.)

Chuckberry32

this game was largely to be expected.

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

That's a nice way of putting it. :-)

Kesmithstl1

Peace Out! Stay thirsty my friends!

Larry Evans in reply to Hwtan

never will be.

FINAL
Florida Atlantic 54
Kansas 77

Jesse Newell

KU improves to 4-2.

Hwtan

Since FAU is smaller in the post and has to close up the lane, KU should kill them with the 3s. But that did not happen. So, that shows that our 3 is not that reliable yet.

Kanstucky

B Mac and EJ have the same stat line...

Jesse Newell

KU is still going to cover.

Huskerpower

JJ covers the spread!

Jaybate

Nice drive Jordan, but try to avoid the blow bys. Avoiding blow bys will get you a few non mop up minutes.

Jayhawker_97

this is really a booboo, i wish the team took advantage of playing against low major. i didnt' see the efforts tonite.

Larry Evans in reply to Kris Weidling

just think how difficult it would be if Ku had the old facilities.

Lawkan

Saban is about due to move on lol.

Huskerpower in reply to Kris Weidling

I also have "credible info" that says Tressel is all but a done deal and they will announce at 3am

Jaybate

If Jordan happens to not get blown by...ooops...he got blown by. Jordan just botched his chance for some glue 3 minutes.

Kent Wells

Are you guys noticing that our "administration" is just as quiet during the head football coach search as they were during the conference realignment? Just holding their breath and hoping for the best...

Larry Evans in reply to Jaybate

hey jaybate,,we agree. poor job is right. very poor.

Kris Weidling

same with Sumlin

Jayhawker_97 in reply to Jaybate

right on, Bait.

Kris Weidling

not that Fedora is stayin at So. Miss...that he is not going to interview with KU

Jaybate

Awesome! Tyshawn finally got on the wing and tossed it in to the post effortlessly.

Cool_beans

i was wondering when the football coaching updates were going to begin

Kesmithstl1

cannot find anywhere that says Fedora says he is staying. Been looking all night.

Jaybate

Perhaps the most remarkable thing down the stretch is the difficulty the team is having getting the ball into the post. We are bigger, faster, and stronger inside and out, but we can't get the ball into the post. That usually means the glue 3 is not doing his job. Travis?

Duane Rice

you think with all the turnovers from johnson and taylor that tharpe would get more min.

Jayhawker_97

how the heck TRob didn't get any touches that much at the end of the court?

Travis Warner in reply to Kris Weidling

So you have absolutely no source at all then?

Huskerpower in reply to Kris Weidling

riiaaaght

Larry Evans in reply to Kris Weidling

i have to agree.

Jeff Coffman

19-11 in the crappy c-usa is not "good"

Kris Weidling

credible info....too many better jobs open...

Larry Evans in reply to Jeff Coffman

Fedora has done a good job at where he is and has the Texas connections. Zenger has to hit a home run .

Jaybate

The guys are scrambling back to respectability here with defense. Bully for the team.

Hwtan

Releford needs to work on his FT and 3-points. He can be a great threat to our opponents if he irons out these two areas.

Travis Warner in reply to Kris Weidling

Source? Or are you just talking out your ***

Huskerpower in reply to Kris Weidling

Of course no source to back it up

Lawkan

they should have fired Gill weeks ago to see if Mitchell could handle the job.

Kent Wells

Cryin' Roy at it again: http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/dish/201111/roy-williams-rips-north-carolina-fans-selling-out

Larry Evans in reply to Kris Weidling

haven't heard that.

Jaybate

Now the team is playing for under 60.

Under 60 sharply reduces the number of wind sprints. :-)

Ia4jayhawk

Does Travis' shot look the same as last year? I seem to remember his shooting stroke looking a lot better

Jeff Coffman

just shoot me now if fedora is our best option

Mike Kendall

22 out of 27 on FT's--that a positive.

Huskerpower in reply to Kris Weidling

Source?

Jaybate in reply to Kris Weidling

With the degree of incompetence demonstrated so far, I highly suspect that after being turned down by a couple coaches, BGL and SheaZeng will rehire Turner Gill. :-)

Larry Evans in reply to Kris Weidling

Is it Leach or Fedora?

Kris Weidling

Fedora, Sumlin say no to KU

Hawkdorf in reply to Kris Weidling

Hopefully Stoops

Huskerpower in reply to Kris Weidling

??

Kesmithstl1 in reply to Kris Weidling

Fedora by the Menorah!

Mike Kendall in reply to Travis Warner

Well, that sucks!

Kris Weidling

Sonny Dikes or Mark Stoops?

Kesmithstl1 in reply to Marchphog88

ditto!

Jaybate

For those who have forgotten Coach Self's pre conference ways, he has been known to let teams labor. :-)

Really, don't worry so much. This is an off night and he's letting them scramble.

It is his usual M.O. Lots of criticism. No helpful hints. Go see if you can win a game without me guys.

Kris Weidling

Sumlin, Fedora out.

Marchphog88 in reply to Kesmithstl1

Self: "You earn your own points against the likes of FAU"

Travis Warner

She i dating a guy that goes to KSU.

Kris Weidling

commerical...so time for predictions for KU FB coach?

Asadz

FAU is playing with intensity. They are running their offense really well. KU is FLAT and Sloppy

Kent Wells

Tenesmus

Stupidmichael

Pretty weak foul.

03:39 left in Second Half
Florida Atlantic 52
Kansas 70

Jesse Newell

Releford with a nice drive.

Marchphog88 in reply to Kris Weidling

Tressel after a long cruise. Lots of food and sun.

Kesmithstl1

KU not running too many set plays tonight. It's like Self is challenging some manhood tonight!

Mike Kendall in reply to Jaybate

I thought Armstrong's daughter was nice looking!

Jesse Newell

KU has done a great job on the glass. KU has 45 rebounds to FAU's 25.

Duane Rice

isnt that where jerry sienfelds parents lived

Kris Weidling

Is that Jim Tressel or Mike Jarvis?

Jaybate in reply to Chuckberry32

Set your alarm clocks, fellas. :-)

Marchphog88

Dear god. Who saves the ball right under their opponents' basket?

I'm a TT supporter, but that was awful.

Chuckberry32 in reply to Jesse Newell

yeah, bench not so good lol

Jaybate in reply to Mike Kendall

I have a feeling Self will find some thing wrong with even the cheerleaders tonight. :-) Its that time of year.

Kris Weidling

Will we cover the 21 point spread??

Chuckberry32

so much for 50 :P

Jesse Newell in reply to Lawkan

Fifteen bench points on 44 bench minutes.

Kent Wells in reply to Marchphog88

And somewhere on the Atlantic side...

Mike Kendall in reply to Huskerpower

I agree FAU is a good team but I think it is a combo of the Hawks not putting forth their best effort. It has been a grind, that's for sure.

05:20 left in Second Half
Florida Atlantic 49
Kansas 66

Jesse Newell

Jarvis takes timeout.

Kris Weidling

Hope Withey does not listen to Dave Mathews

Lawkan

How many bench points tonight?

Asadz

Next few practices will be INTENSE

Jaybate in reply to Kris Weidling

No, Withey = we go as far as Withey takes us this year.

Marchphog88

No, Dave Armstrong, I'm not wondering where Florida Atlantic is located. Knowing that it's in Florida is plenty for me.

Larry Evans in reply to Brian Powell

maybe,,but i doubt it because of the turnover kings( EJ and TT). Ku lose and lose at BU,A&M,TX,MU and one at home. 8 reg. loses.

Jesse Newell

Withey again.

Huskerpower

Has anyone else noticed how solid FAU has played?

Mike Kendall

Wow--our defense stinks! See if Self says anything about our defense.

Jaybate

Pigballin'

17 up on a decent Mid Major on a night when Self has obviously run them into the ground with conditioning drills for a few previous days is not that bad. :-)

Kent Wells in reply to Jesse Newell

I'd go with inane prattle... But, that might go past a few...

Kris Weidling

Are starting the Chenowith/Gregory years again?

Jesse Newell in reply to Kesmithstl1

Nope.

Kesmithstl1

is he going to get his 20 Jesse? Only 14 now

Jesse Newell in reply to Kent Wells

Maybe flaming works better.
