WACO -- Kansas freshman Marcus Morris had a dominating start after halftime and twin brother Markieff had some big contributions of his own and the 21st-ranked Jayhawks beat Baylor 75-65 Monday night for their seventh straight victory.
Kansas (18-4, 7-0), which moved into the Top 25 on Monday for
the first time since early December, didn't lead until Sherron
Collins had a pair of short floaters in the final 43 seconds of the
first half to make it 30-28.
Marcus Morris then scored the Jayhawks' first eight points after
halftime. When Markieff Morris hit an open 3-pointer from the top
of the key with 15:56 left, the Jayhawks led 43-33.
Collins had 16 points, and has led Kansas in scoring in all but
five games this season. Marcus Morris had a season-high 13 points
and Mario Little had 12.
Henry Dugat and Kevin Rogers had 15 points each to lead four
players in double figures for Baylor (15-7, 3-5), which has lost
four straight games.
