It wasn't always pretty, but the Jayhawks had just enough to claim their 12th straight victory over the Wildcats at Allen Fieldhouse and 55th victory in the last 60 games against KSU.

Kansas (14-3, 4-1) maintained their share of second place in the Big 12 with the victory behind West Virginia. Graham's fourth 3-pointer of the contest 6:30 into the second frame put KU up 49-38.

The Jayhawks closed the gap to 29-28 on a pair of free throws with 2:02 remaining, but a 3-pointer from junior Barry Brown, Jr., and steal and layup by redshirt freshman Cartier Diarra on back-to-back possessions gave the Wildcats a 34-28 lead at 1:06 mark. Kansas ended the half with the momentum as consecutive long balls, including one by senior Svi Mykhailiuk at the buzzer, knotted the game at 34-all at the break.

"We've got that confidence that in crunch time we can get that last stop or execute that last play on offense", Graham said. The game again remained tied at 67-all after Wade and Vick once again converted on 3-pointers wat the 3:10 mark. It marked his seventh career 20-point game, including his third this season. Kansas struggled to get the ball inside and eventually went almost 10 minutes with just one field goal. On the strength of 9 offensive rebounds, the Wildcats were able to score 13 second-chance points, the most since scoring 18 in the win at Iowa State on December 29. The Wildcat duo combined for 21 first-half points, which included 12-straight from the pair to give their team the edge late in the half. Azubuike had a game-high eight rebounds to go with 19 points on 8-9 shooting. The 90.9 percent clip from the free throw line was the second highest this season and the second time shooting 90 percent or better from the line.
