Ben McLemore scored 30 points on his 20th birthday, and No. 14 Kansas routed No. 10 Kansas State, 83-62, on Monday night to snap a maddening three-game skid and forge a tie for first in the Big 12.
Jeff Withey had 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks, giving him 263 for his career, one shy of the conference’s career mark held by Chris Mihm of Texas. Withey even had a couple of steals as he helped the Jayhawks (20-4, 8-3 Big 12) pull even with the Wildcats (19-5, 8-3) in the league race.
