McLemore leads No. 9 Kansas past Colorado, 90-54
KANSAS 90, COLORADO 54

By DAVE SKRETTA
AP Sports Writer

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Ben McLemore is already accustomed to
being on the finishing end of alley-oop dunks.



He was on the giving end on Saturday.



It happened midway through the second half, when the freshman
guard looked toward the rim and then lofted a pass that Kevin
Young snared in mid-air. The senior sparkplug for ninth-ranked
Kansas proceeded to throw down a dunk over Colorado's Xavier
Johnson that brought another capacity crowd in Allen Fieldhouse
to its feet.



In a game full of highlights, that one might have defined the
game.



McLemore finished with 24 points, Young added 16 points and
eight rebounds, and the Jayhawks rolled to a 90-54 victory over
the Buffaloes, sending their former Big 12 foe limping back to
the Pac-12.



"He was talking to me - he kept saying, `I'm running and
running,"' McLemore said. "We got on a break, and I tossed it up
to him and he finished it, and the crowd got into it and we kept
rolling."



Elijah Johnson hit three 3-pointers and finished with 11 points,
and Travis Releford added 10 points and six assists for the
Jayhawks (7-1), who used an 18-3 run fueled by feisty defense to
bury the Buffaloes early.



Kansas pushed the advantage to more than 20 by halftime,
surpassed the 30-point barrier with 17 minutes left and extended
it to 40 with about 8 minutes to go before substituting
liberally down the stretch.



"That was an old-fashioned (butt) whipping right there, is what
that was," Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. "It's not like our
guys wanted to roll over and die. Kansas just came out and took
our heart."



Josh Scott finished with 19 points to lead the Buffaloes (7-2),
who have lost two of three after rattling off six straight wins
to start the year. Askia Booker added 15 points, and leading
scorer Spencer Dinwiddie was held to four points on 1-for-4
shooting. Xavier Johnson missed all four of his field-goal
attempts before fouling out.



"It all comes down to defense," Dinwiddie said. "It's not like
they were hitting contested 3s, they were dunking on us and
absolutely humiliating us. There really is nothing else to say."



Colorado has lost 19 straight to the Jayhawks, and 46 of 47,
dating to the 1991 season. The longtime Big 12 member, which
bolted for the Pac-12 last season, still hasn't won at Allen
Fieldhouse since the 1982-83 season, a span of 29 games.



Kansas coach Bill Self is 18-0 against the Buffaloes, and has
won 11 straight against the Pac-12.



"That's the first time we've played a game in our building where
we didn't let our opponent get comfortable in the game from the
outset," Self said. "That's what we're supposed to do every
game."



The Jayhawks led 43-22 at halftime after turning Colorado over
12 times and coughing up a possession just twice in the first 20
minutes. The result was a lopsided 22-2 advantage in
points-off-turnovers, and a big lead despite missing its final
10 3-point attempts of the half.



McLemore nearly outscored the Buffaloes by himself, pouring in
17 points.



The freshman guard, who sat out last season as a partial NCAA
qualifier, did his best work slashing through the lane and
getting to the foul line. But he also picked Colorado's pocket
on a couple of occasions, once tipping the ball over a
defender's head and tracking it down for an easy dunk and an
18-3 lead in the opening minutes.



"I give my teammates a lot of credit," McLemore said. "We just
go out there and have fun."



The only stretch in which Kansas wasn't having fun came midway
through the first half, when it missed seven straight field
goals, and Colorado closed within 29-18. As if on cue, the
Jayhawks scored the next nine points to force Boyle - who played
for Kansas in the 1980s - to call a frantic timeout.



Dinwiddie, who had scored at least 20 in three straight games,
played only 12 minutes in the first half. He picked up two fouls
in the first 5 minutes, and at one point went to the locker room
favoring his left ankle.



The Jayhawks put the game away with an 11-2 run to start the
second half.



The spurt included a nifty feed from Young to Jeff Withey under
the basket, and a block by Withey on Colorado's Andre Roberson
that led to a run-out and a dunk by Releford. Young had a hand
in several buckets early in the second half, and finished 8 of 9
from the field as the Jayhawks shot 55 percent for the game.



"When you're playing a team like Kansas in a building like this,
your mistakes get magnified," Boyle said, "and they just put it
to us."
