KU Continues To Roll

It was business as usual for Bill Self and eighth-ranked Kansas (23-4; 10-2) against Nebraska (15-10; 4-7) on Saturday afternoon. In defeating the Cornhuskers, 92-39, five Jayhawks scored in double-figures. For the fourth time in as many games, the Hawks defeated their opponent by at least 18-points.

Against the Cornhuskers on Saturday afternoon, five players, Julian Wright (10), Mario Chalmers (10), Brandon Rush (13), Darrell Arthur (13) and Sherron Collins (12) scored in double-figures.

In all, 13 players scored for the Jayhawks. Saturdays performance against the Cornhuskers was, without question, one of the most impressive performances of the Bill Self era.
