No. 7 Kansas dominates Oklahoma State

Feb 12, 2012 - 12:48 AM Lawrence, KS (Sports Network) - Thomas Robinson had 24 points and 14 rebounds, helping the seventh-ranked Kansas Jayhawks dominate the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 81-66.

Jeff Withey also had a double-double with 18 points and 20 boards for the Jayhawks (20-5, 10-2 Big 12), who recorded their 23rd straight 20-win campaign.

"It makes it a lot easier for me. I feel like I'm not even working to score anymore now with the way Jeff is playing," Robinson said. "My play deserves nothing. This is on Jeff. He's playing his butt off right now. He's definitely the reason we're playing good right now."

Tyshawn Taylor and Elijah Johnson added 12 and 11 points, respectively, for Kansas, which has posted 10 or more wins in conference play for 18th straight seasons. Travis Releford donated 10 points.

Markel Brown ended with 21 points for the Cowboys (12-13, 5-7), who shot just 32.7 percent from the field and went 5-for-21 from beyond the arc. Keiton Page tallied 19 points.

Holding a 16-13 lead with 12:23 left in the first half, Kansas never looked back after putting together a 22-4 run over the next seven minutes. Withey tallied seven points during the burst, which Releford capped with a slam for a 38-17 margin.

An 11-0 Kansas surge later in the half made it a 51-22 game. Page's jumper made it 51-24 at the break.

The Jayhawks cruised to victory in the second half.

"Give Kansas all the credit. They just came out and jumped on us," Oklahoma State head coach Travis Ford said. "We never could get going. In the first half, we just couldn't get anything happening from both ends of the court. We were just kind of stuck in mud, and they had a lot to do with that."
