BOULDER, Colo. -- Second-ranked Kansas overcame a slow start
thanks to Darnell Jackson's 18 points and turned back Colorado's
upset bid 72-59 today in Boulder.
It was the Jayhawks' first game since their perfect season was
ended by Kansas State in an 84-75 shocker Wednesday night.
The Jayhawks' lead was just 51-48 with less than nine minutes
remaining before going on a 21-11 run to close the game.
The Jayhawks trailed most of the first half and went into the
locker room tied at 30.
But they held the Buffs scoreless for more than five minutes to
start the second half and used an 8-0 run to take control.
Richard Roby led the Buffaloes with 22 points.
