OSU Can't Hang With Kansas In Lawrence

Jeff Withey and Thomas Robinson each logged impressive double-doubles for No. 7 Kansas, which wasted a big chunk of a 29-point second-half cushion before pulling away for an 81-66 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.

Withey finished with 18 points and a career-best 20 rebounds, while Robinson burnished his player of the year credentials with 24 points and 14 boards for his 18th double-double of the season.

Tyshawn Taylor added 12 points, Elijah Johnson had 11 and Travis Releford 10 for the Jayhawks (20-5, 10-2 Big 12), whose 55-26 lead was trimmed to a dozen with 6:43 to go.

Withey and Robinson answered the call, each knocking down a pair of free throws to help Kansas earn its 19th consecutive home victory.

The Cowboys had four players in double figures led by Markel Brown with 21 points.{} The Cowboys have now lost six of its last nine games.

Up next, OSU heads to Columbia to take on #4 Missouri on Wednesday night.
